After an early stint drumming and singing in Haybaby (Tiny Engines), Zach James began writing and self-producing folk records in his bedroom, donning the name The Silver Spaceman.
The project evolved into a post-punk band featuring Andrew Bailey (DIIV) on lead guitar. Snarling and simmering around darker textures eons beyond its early folk roots, James looked to his darkened smile and rechristened the project Dead Tooth. They gained momentum opening for bands like Hand Habits, The Space Lady and Current Joys.
After recording their second EP entitled Pig Pile, the pandemic disembodied the group as it did many others. Ambitious to keep the momentum up James rebuilt the band from the ground up. He added an EWI/Sax player and relinquished his own live guitar duties for a frontman stage persona. After getting picked up by Rough Trade Publishing and Trash Casual Records they went on to win Winter Madness (a 16 band, 5 week long "battle of the bands" at Brooklyn's legendary rooftop venue Our Wicked Lady). Not long after they found themselves on the Stubbs main stage for SPIN Magazine’s SXSW showcase alongside The Lemonheads, Bass Drum of Death and Pom Pom Squad. SPIN wrote of SXSW, "If there was someone who really broke out...it was Brooklyn’s Dead Tooth.”
These are not all of artist's releases, just the ones we have had a look at
