2012 Roundup Antenna Farm Playlist!

What a year! Antenna Farm had a really exciting 2012, and we were privileged to bring you new sounds from Agent Ribbons, Dana Falconberry, Social Studies, Emily Jane White, Bart Davenport and Papercuts.

Every year we look back and reflect on how lucky we are to work with such a talented set of artists, and this year may have been our best one yet. So as you prepare for the full holiday onslaught, take a quick break with some of our favorite tracks from 2012. Don’t forget, all of these titles are available on iTunes, and of course Vinyl & CDs are available from these artists at the AF store, and are priced 20% off through the end of the year with the promo code ‘BLOCK20‘ at checkout! Happy Holidays!

In Stores Now! Bart Davenport and Papercuts Vinyl!

Papercuts Mockingbird LP

Happy Valentine’s Day! We’re pleased to announce the formal release of 2 great records today, in stores and on iTunes. And if you head over to the Antenna Farm store, we’ll give you a 10% discount on any purchase through Sunday, just enter the code ‘VDAY2012‘ and start saving. Why do we do this? Because it’s that time of year and we love you!

First up, the deluxe LP re-issue of PapercutsMockingbird‘ LP, pictured above. 140 gram blue vinyl plus a bonus 7″ with 2 previously unreleased tracks! Limited to 500 copies, each comes with a download card for MP3 versions of all 12 tracks. Available at your local record store, the AF Store, and on iTunes!

Nest up, the new single from Bart Davenport, Someone2Dance w/B-side Cheap Words. This is a blast of pure power-pop, A-Side Someone2Dance channels equal parts Dwight Twilley and The Cars; a righteous affirmation of romantic liberation awash in reverb and complete with meltdown guitar solo. Watch for it in the upcoming indie film ‘Smashed‘, featuring Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad) and Nick Offerman (Parks and Rec). B-side Cheap Words deconstructs earlier pop versions of the song, with producer and longtime BD collaborator Sam Flax matching the dark lyric with a bed of minimal synthesizer and drum machine. Available now on vinyl at your favorite local record shop, at the AF store, and available digitally on iTunes.

And remember to use discount code ‘VDAY2012′ all this week for a 10% discount on ALL purchases at the AF store. Cheers!

Antenna Farm Blows Up Noise Pop 2012!!!

It’s February in San Francisco, and that means Noise Pop. Of course this year is special, because it’s the 20th Anniversary. Who’d have thought, back in 1992, that there’d still be “pop music” or even “noise” in 2012? And while we pause to feel a little bit of “pride” and a whole lot of “old” we’re also going to thank the wonderful bookers over in the noise pop offices for inviting no less than four Antenna Farm artists to play this year!

 

That’s right! We have confirmed Noise Pop shows for Papercuts, Social Studies, Foxtails Brigade, and our newest addition to the Antenna Farm family, Emily Jane White (ps…this last mention is still a bit of a secret, so only tell your closest and most gossipy friends…)

 

I could prattle on and on, but I know what you care about, my friend…SHOW DETAILS (and some music!) AFTER THE JUMP!!!!

Antenna Farm Presents – Papercuts ‘Mockingbird’ — Deluxe LP coming on Valentine’s Day!!!

Papercuts - MockingbirdYes. It has been years in the making, but Antenna Farm is proud to announce the upcoming release of Papercuts first proper album, Mockingbird, for the first time available on vinyl in a limited edition deluxe LP package with a bonus 7″ featuring two previously unreleased tracks.

Papercuts have been doing their thing in the Bay Area since the early 2000s, with numerous Noise Pop, Mission Creek, SXSW, and CMJ appearances under their belt. They’ve toured and recorded with the likes of Grizzly Bear, Beach House, and Deerhoof. Quever has also worked with some of the SF Bay Area’s most prominent bands and songwriters, including Vetiver, Casiotone for the Painfully Alone, Skygreen Leopards, Cass McCombs, and many more. Following the breakthrough release of Mockingbird, Papercuts released two albums for Devendra Banhart and Andy Cabic’s label Gnomonsong before moving to Sub Pop and releasing the album Fading Parade in 2011.

Originally only released on CD back in 2004, AF is re-releasing Mockingbird on a limited edition blue vinyl LP (140 gram vinyl, limited to 500 copies) newly re-mastered by California vinyl auteur JJ Golden and including a bonus 7” of two previously unreleased tracks from the Mockingbird sessions; all 12 tracks are included as a free MP3 download with the LP.

The LP and new deluxe MP3 version (also w/ bonus tracks) are released to your favorite local record shop and iTunes on Valentine’s Day (2/14/12) but just between us, you can order your copy right now from the Antenna Farm store!

yip deceiver live!A series of great shows this weekend in the Bay Area, check it out!

First, on Friday 12/2, Yip Deceiver (see photo) rolls into Oakland for a FREE show at the Uptown, part of the First Friday Art Murmur. The band features members of Sugar & Gold as well as of Montreal, and their live show is always a rocks off dance party. For more info on the show, check the Event page, here.

The same night in San Francisco (Friday, 12/2), chanteuse extraordinaire Laura Weinbach and her band Foxtails Brigade open a very special show for the one and only Jane Birkin at the Regency Ballroom. For information and advance tickets, click here. The following night, Saturday December 3rd, Foxtails Brigade head over to the Mission for an intimate show at Viracocha. Both shows will be the debut of the brand new Foxtails Brigade Christmas CD, so be sure to head out to one or both shows to pick up a copy! For more info on both shows, check the event page here.

Are we done yet? Not a chance! Also on Saturday, December 3rd, Papercuts headline a great lineup at the Rickshaw Stop! Noise Pop Presents Papercuts, with Dominant Legs and Tim Cohen’s Magic Trick. This is a rare SF performance for Papercuts, and with these great acts opening, this is not a show to miss. Advance tickets are recommended as this show will likely sell out. Get them here.

Finally, we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention that the Agent Ribbons Brooklyn residency ALSO starts this Friday, with 5 shows in our fave NYC Borough, plus a quick run upstate for a show at Bard College. For the full itinerary, click here!
