FEB036: “In Your Ruin” by Caténine



FEB036 —

Caténine is the Massachusetts-based recording project of Dylan Connor. Begun in a studio apartment in Boston and transplanted across the state, Caténine channels the jangly pop of The Field Mice, the synth-heavy work of The Wake and New Order, and the textural depth of Disintegration-era The Cure. The live band also consists of Brian Bartus, Andrew Kapinos, and Kiana Saroce. Caténine has previously released a self-titled cassette, a 7″ split with Funeral Advantage, and is currently in the process of recording another album.

The free downloadable track comes with an exclusive interview with Caténine’s Dylan Connor.



“At times, listening to this, it’s hard to believe it is not the demo tape Wild Nothings sent to Captured Tracks. It’s this wonderful batch of hazy, dreamy indie pop that would have been right at home circa 2010.” – c86’d

“…it is evident that Caténine is poised for something great with a style of music that harkens back to the post-punk of the early 80′s. Musically, they share a kinship with New Order and The Cure but with a push to go beyond and expand on the sonic palette already laid out.” – The 1st Five

Best of 2013: Caténine



Caténine, the recording project of Dylan Connor, is a band you’ll be hearing from very soon. The Massachusetts-based band draws influence from The Field Mice, The Cure, and Joy Division. Dylan’s personal taste is even more varied.
