Jim Andralis and the Syntonics To Perform at Palette ArtSpace
originally published: 08/08/2018
(ASBURY PARK, NJ) -- Palette ArtSpace presents a concert by Jim Andralis and the Syntonics on Thursday, August 23rd at 7:00pm. The New York City based indie pop band is touring in support of their record Shut Up Shut Up. Tickets are $15.
Those neon-clad kids of early MTV days may have had 30 years’ worth of real life heaped on them, but they still want to come to your party. You’ll probably want Jim Andralis & the Syntonics’ Shut Up Shut Up playing when they get there. If Jim Andralis’ solo debut, Your Dying Wish Come True was a meditation on grief, Shut Up Shut Up’s eleven songs focus on the occasionally beautiful act of sticking around and slugging it out. The Syntonics’ (Julie DeLano, Leslie Graves, Susan Hwang and Jessie Kilguss) celestial yet profoundly human harmonies simultaneously recall the Roches, B52’s, the Carter Family, and the Chiffons.
The Miami Herald called singer-songwriter Jim Andralis’ Your Dying Wish Come True “one of the best solo debut discs of the year.” Since its release in March of 2016, Julie DeLano, Leslie Graves, Susan Hwang and Jessie Kilguss have been adding their lush harmonies to his NYC performances. Each is a songwriter and performer in her own right. Together they are Syntonics.
Jim wrote, sang and played the accordion in the early-to-mid aughts downtown NYC band The Isotoners, a gay post-punk cult sensation. He later established himself as a featured player among a dazzling roster of performers at the acclaimed Joe’s Pub monthly variety show Our Hit Parade from 2008 through 2012. He plays regularly at venues like Joe’s Pub, Mercury Lounge and Rockwood Music Hall and is joined regularly by the Syntonics as well as his favorite singer, artist and hunk, husband Larry Krone.
Jim works in New York City as a trauma-focused psychotherapist in private practice. He also released a duet with his buddy Bridget Everett (Camping, Patti Cake$) called “Hit the Ground Fuckin’.”
