Most notable for his work in indie dance/psychadelic house group Pink Skull (Co-founded in 2004 with Julian Grefe), Justin Geller finally releases solo work as Remote Places.
Remote Places’ debut EP, “Nights and Weekends”, was co-produced and recorded with Jeff Zeigler (War on Drugs, Kurt Vile, Nothing). Along with Ziegler, Sean McGuinness of Pissed Jeans came aboard to record drums, as well as Grefe (S PRCSS) on guitar, Mikele Edwards (Myrrias) on vocals/piano and Mike Hammel (The Ropers) on bass. It’s the result of a lifetime of music obsession and a year or so of writing and recording. Geller’s new sound gives a nod to the past, getting comparisons to classic alternative music like The Cure, New Order and, The Smiths, but also showing similarities to contemporary artists like The National, Washed Out, and Wild Nothing.
