Anti-Defamation League
Anti-Defamation League
The Anti-Defamation League was founded in 1913 "to stop the defamation of the Jewish people and to secure justice and fair treatment to all."
ADL builds bridges of communication, understanding and respect among diverse groups, carrying out its mission through a network of 30 Regional and Satellite Offices in the United States and abroad.
This Is Lorelei
Mid-20s, Midwestern, and middle-minded Sam Shaffer and Nate Bucher look through a lens covered with an entangled web of the right and left- brained folk - hybrids of a sort. This lens sees the world in an opportunistic way, trading commonly accepted dimensions of time and space for sound and feel, for openness and cyclic intervals. The tiny tangible and intangible moments of the day to day parade of corporate dwellings pose them in positions, behind a desk in an office in a big building or what have you, to embellish some sort of meaning. Some sort of impressionable feeling that transcends the daily routine, or the passing of the modern cause and effect. There exist intervals of experience that belong in a song. Or rather, a song that owns an interval of experience. Thus to be captured, immortalized, and stored as a moment of time, or whatever dimension, inside of a song.

It is Faintlife's attempt to realize these intervals within their debut record "UV". To keep the experience not unlike themselves. A hybrid of shifting pulses and thought processes.

In another, less visionary tale, Sam and Nate have worked together closely over the course of a year in basements, studio apartments, and hundreds of miles away to compose what they feel is a satisfactory record. Faintlife took the skeleton of the album to Pieholden Suite Sound in Chicago, IL where they recorded drums and many layers of vintage gems Jay Bennett (Wilco) had amassed. They will self-release the record in the Spring of 2015.
