Feeling Good After Tour – Forest Creature

Friday, April 19th, 2013

Seth Faergolzia, John Ludington

A wonderful tour through Germany, Belgium, Netherlands, Switzerland, Austria and Italy. Music is such a good experience, a wonderful way to make the coolest friends I’ve ever had. There are great people all over the world. I’ll be taking a bit of a break to work on my Opera “23 Psaegz” and songwriting / looping and continuing work on my paintings, sculpture and videos.

Will try to keep you all up to date on what’s going on!







In the meantime, check out the awesome awesome FOREST CREATURE ALBUM!

Till next time!

hugs, Seth

Seth Faergolzia and 23 Psaegz rock opera Premiere Tour

Monday, September 12th, 2011

Anti-folk hero Seth Faergolzia (of Dufus)
premieres new rock opera 23 PSAEGZ ON TOUR…

Sept 17 @ Bug Jar, Rochester, NY (with O’Death)
Sept 22 @ Nyack Vilalge Theater, Nyack, NY (early show)
Sept 22 @ House of Love, Greenwich, CT
Sept 23 @ Cake Shop, New York, NY
Sept 24 @ The Whitehaus Family Record, Boston

Founded by Seth Faergolzia in 2010 as the successor to his world-renowned

13-year project, Dufus, the23 Psaegz (pronounced say•jezz) carry on the

warm, weird legacy by stretching the boundaries of musical experience with

craze & care unmatched. The group originally gathered with the intention of

performing Seth’s 23 Psaegz stream of consciousness puppet rock opera, &

has since also become a collaborative backing for his complex web of

musical delight. Front man Faergolzia brings his one-man-band skills

(mastering simultaneously the guitar, glockenspiel, kick drum, and

vocal antics) to a new apex of musical sagacity, as he leads the 23

Psaegz odd.

“Seth Faergolzia’s Dufus has always challenged traditional conceptions

about folk through unorthodox and highly-developed melodies and rhythms.”

- Huffington Post

Read the Huffingtn Posts’ recent feature on Seth.

or in their own words…

23 Psaegz — a long piece of music derived from 23 pages of Seth’s streaming

mind waves. Seth conducts his rollicking 15-folk-grand orchestra with a ‘glock’

mallet, booming kick pedal, tenacious guitar, & far-arching vocals. Designed

with five moving parts, 23 Psaegz ignites a most profoundly human machine,

a musical organism with propellers, say, blasting out whirls of free-thought,

frequencies that both cut close to the bone & hug the heart fondly — a true

masterwork. Seth’s keen ear for harmony deftly channels the energies & talents

of the human voice, flute, tuba, trumpet, violin, guitars, bass, piano &

found/salvaged percussion pieces. With the precision and release of flight,

melodic instruments melt sweet cream harmonies with the bass section,

lead & vocal choir, then muscle up with brain circuit cranking dissonance.

The playful & seriously probing expanse of 23 Psaegz = kaleidoscopic-divine

New Orleans marching band meets Peter & the Wolf in outer space. This

intense conflation of lyrical imagery & sonic wonder is music to submerge in.

Seth & the Psaegz concoct music which remains outside the scope of particular

genre-labels or classification. With their harmonic subtlety, poetically

experimental lyricism, quirked-out energy, & of course, Seth’s soaring,

gurgling, whip-crack-acrobatic vocals, each Psaegz performance lovingly

unweaves time, revealing moments honest & organic in their exploration

of possibility. Spontaneously fusing performers with audience, Psaegz

mingle into the crowd in fits of wild dance to Seth’s iPod-karaoke hip-jump

sample-gasms. They’re reshaping & reinventing musical forms to create

new, relevant gestures forward. Whether a whistle-driven dirge,

foot-stomping fable, or inspired improvisation, these are not songs

that will attract only a novel-shock-response, but a growing body of

music so dynamic & full, it can be approached as if with new ears

every time — outlandish, wise & full-hearted.
