Rock and Roll from Brooklyn, NY

  Funny and sad like a trainwreck full of clowns, Brooklyn-based Don Paris Schlotman currently plays bass for heavy psych-rock band Toshio, sings and plays guitar in wavegaze rock band Dolphins Don't Love, plays synth and bass for Brian Bonz & The Major Crimes, and is a co-founding singer/bassist of defunct post-apocalyptic sc-fi band The Sky Captains of Industry.

  Born in a freak accident, the seventh son of a lightning bolt and a mountain lion, Don plays music the way some people fall over, and his artificial left eye can see 4 seconds into the future. He makes art, plays and writes music, wrestles conundrums, falls down sometimes, and is a cat lady in training. The reports of his wizardry are greatly exaggerated, although he has been known to make things disappear at times, including but not limited to himself.

EPK/Electronic Press Kit


  "Ever concerned with the complex and often under-considered relationships between man and woman, humanity and nature, and the ego and eternity, Hardest of Hearts is thinking man's songwriting in its purest form.... About as low-key as it gets, this record is recommended for all sad bastards and science geeks alike. A slow burner filled with mournfully atmospheric electric guitar and even some spoken poetry here and there, Hardest of Hearts, for all its dark preoccupations, ultimately carries with it a strange and eccentric affirmation."
