about

DIY doesn't carry the same allure and integrity it once did. With the technology at hand, any kid can make a crisp, professional recording. What we've lost is a warts and all ethos, and an intangible passion that comes only from real instrumentation, coated with blood and sweat, and maybe a few tears. Enter the world of DIY practitioner Kurt von Stetten. Harnessing his love of early 90s indie rock (think Pavement, Sebadoh and early Modest Mouse) interweaved with his own insecurities, fears and passions, von Stetten's eighth solo outing Broken, But Not Undone is his most accomplished, self-assured and revealing; a record that proudly stands alongside DIY revisionists Kurt Vile and Ty Segall, and also the seminal 90s output of his heroes.

The sounds, textures, and nuances on Broken, But Not Undone are 100% von Stetten. While he's always done his own instrumentation, von Stetten had the last three records professionally mixed and mastered. On Broken, there's nowhere to hide, and the results may not be technically flawless, but it's the way von Stetten wants you to hear it. "I really tried to just play with sound on a lot of these songs," recalls von Stetten. "I know that I mix incorrectly and that I do not know what I am doing sonically but this is the way I hear them." The result is a gloriously chaotic, beautiful trip into the psyche of one of today's great unsung artists.
