Foxtails Brigade have a new video, the third in the Farmhouse Sessions, recorded earlier this year by their friend Jack Conte (of avant-pop group Pomplamoose). Using a style that he has perfected for his own band, Jack utilizes a multi-camera recording of live performance…no overdubs or splices! The result is a video that captures the energy of the Foxtails Brigade live show, which is something to behold. Previous videos in the series can be seen here and here.
The new video is for the song We Are Not Ourselves, a new song slated for formal album release later this year that has not yet had a proper studio recording. This one is a personal favorite here at the AF HQ…we remember it’s debut last year, with front-woman Laura Weinbach excitedly announcing that a bout of insomnia the night before had produced a new song. It was a good insomnia! Indeed, the song leads into the insomnia itself, describing the voices in her head telling her to be quiet and go to sleep….we are glad she didn’t listen.
In addition to the video, Bay Area folks can catch up with Foxtails Brigade at the Starry Plough in Berkeley July 6th, with La Dee Da and the Missing Parts opening.
Without further ado, the video!
