DM (David) Stith is one of the anticipated break out artist for 2009. His debut EP was released on Asthmatic Kitty late last year and his first LP, Heavy Ghost, is due out March 10. “Pity Dance” is the first single and video from the album. His music is very soft and haunting and has a sound similar to Department of Eagles. David spent a year writing, arranging and recording, performing nearly all of the music on Heavy Ghost—even creating all of the album’s artwork—resulting in an intensely personal masterwork that exposes his own conflicted spirituality and his drive to find a place in which he belongs.
Take a look and a listen. Then be prepared to hear more from this gentleman who’s earned the love and support of Sufjan Stevens and My Brightest Diamond’s Shara Worden.
