SOUND SOCIETY — Dietrich Strause
OBERON Presents, OBERON Shows
One Night Only — September 15, 2016
Dietrich Strause

Dietrich Strause’s songs are a mix of timeless melody, literate lyricism, and a "virtuosic command of imagery.” (The Artery, WBUR) Strause released his new album How Cruel That Hunger Binds on August 26, produced by Zachariah Hickman (Ray LaMontage, Josh Ritter), the next benchmark in his steady evolution as one of the most eclectic writers and performers coming out of New England. This unique release show, the first in the Sound Society at OBERON series, will feature Strause leading his band through the new album top to bottom, incorporating video projections and a spoken-word DJ. A strident romantic. Incisive lyricist. Charismatic performer. Adventuresome multi-instrumentalist. Mischievous charmer. Timeless gentleman. And patient observer. How Cruel That Hunger Binds is the clearest reflection of Strause as an artist to date. With each song being its own weight in a balance of clever charm and poetic devastation, it’s fulfilled by the mid-century pop sounds of brass, guitars, and Orbison-esque orchestrations.

This evening is part of Sound Society at OBERON, a new music series co-curated by local producer and musician Sam Kassirer (Lake Street Dive, Josh Ritter, Parsonsfield). These one-night only events will feature exceptional musicians, bands, and special guests in performances designed for OBERON’s unique club-theater setting. See more SOUND SOCIETY events here!



 

'How Cruel That Hunger Binds,' is an artistic work that feels simultaneously big and small: It has a broad vision coupled with an intimate execution. More

Strause, who has lived in Boston since 2008, eschews cheesy hooks and obvious showmanship, preferring to let his songs stand on their own.  More
