We're catching up on making our back catalog available on bandcamp. We've just put up three releases: the "Animal Life" 12" vinyl picture disc, the "Angels' Share" b/w "Devil's Play" 7" vinyl picture disc, and the "Louder Than Words" digital only rarities release. Happy spring!
Today only, Friday Feb 3, Bandcamp is donating 100% of its proceeds to the ACLU. And today we're making available for the first time on Bandcamp our album "Holding On For Brighter Days", both digitally and on vinyl. In solidarity with Bandcamp, we will donate 100% of sales of any of our records today to the ACLU. Thank you, and thanks to Bandcamp and the ACLU for supporting basic human values. Holding on...
Windmills By The Ocean is touring and we're excited to play their NYC show along with Owlfood and Thurn & Taxis! It's happening Tues July 15 at Bar Matchless in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Since Terri and Adam are off having adventures and can't do the show, we'll have an unusual line-up. Our friend and original drummer Thos will be joining us, along with our brother from another mother and guitar god Mike Malone (aka Orb Mellon). FUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!
He's been our sometimes bass player, he's been our occasional sound god, and he'll always be our forever friend. He's Greg Moss, and he's invited us to play a show with his awesome band Owlfood on Saturday May 10 at Lilypad, Inman Sq, Cambridge MA, along with sonic explorers Geoglyphs. We can't wait!
We were visiting the Best Friends Animal Society website and came across a video Moby made at Best Friends' Los Angeles branch for his song with Damien Jurado, "Almost Home". We were completely moved and inspired by this, so we decided to cover the song, and the video too so to speak, as a response to Moby's original. Here's our version:
You can get a free download of our version of "Almost Home" at our bandcamp page. If you decide to pay for it, 100% of anything we collect will be donated to the Gifford Cat Shelter, a no-kill shelter in Brighton, Massachusetts, where we shot our video.
We have the perfect thing to help you get through this brutal winter! Terri is the drummer on an amazing new growling doom project called Vardlokk featuring Grutle Kjellson of Enslaved (vocals), Dave Sweetapple from Witch (bass), Tim Lehi from Draugar (guitar), and Ivor Sandoy also of Enslaved/Jazkamer (effects/Moog). They just released a new 7 inch on Outer Battery Records. It’s available on white vinyl, and a limited pressing of 200 copies on red vinyl. The artwork is stellar as well. We’re so stoked for our Terri!
Tomorrow night (Tues) Maria and Ayal will be playing a couple of acoustic songs on WMBR's fundraiser during Pipeline, MIT Radio's local music show. If you're local, you can tune in to 88.1 on your FM dial. From anywhere else, you can listen to live streaming at http://wmbr.mit.edu/WMBR_live_128.m3u
The show is from 8-10pm. We play roughly (no pun intended) from 8:45 to 9pm EST. Unfortunately, Terri can't join us since she has a class (yes, “she’s got class”!). We'll be immediately followed by our extremely talented friend and family member Adam McGrath (Cave In/Clouds). So tune in, it should be fun! And thanks so much to DJ/host Jeff Breeze for inviting us to play!
Fun news! We heard that we are going to be this coming week’s “Band of the Week” on WMBR’s “Breakfast of Champions”, the legendary morning show from 8-10am on MIT’s radio station, 88.1FM in Cambridge/Boston. What does that mean? It means that every morning next week (April 29-May 3rd) they will feature one of our songs at 8:30am. We are so honored and psyched, what a nice surprise! Big thanks to Jon Bernhardt for thinking of us! Live streaming of WMBR is here: http://wmbr.org/
Maria and Ayal made a home video about three sister kittens they rescued. It's not exactly a rock video, but perhaps you'd like to Meet The Beans:
Here's a video for our new song "Do What You Do". Music will be available in several formats soon. Yay!
Happy Valentine's Day! We don't have any flowers or chocolates for you, but here are some bananas and peaches we got from the produce department:
