Foxtails Brigade release final Farmhouse Series video!

Foxtails Brigade have released the 4th and final video in their Farmhouse Series, a set of live performance videos captured by Jack Conte of Pomplamoose. This one is for Long Day, one of our favorite cuts off of 2011′s The Bread and the Bait.

 

Foxtails Brigade have been super busy this summer, with a set of new recordings in the works and a series of festival gigs, but they return to SF for a special show at the Bottom of the Hill in a couple of weeks (Saturday, September 1st) for a show with the excellent Yesway and Whiskerman. For tickets, click the image to the right.

 

And yes, the video! For those who haven’t caught one of the earlier entries in the series, these were strictly live performances with no overdubs or do-overs, but shot with multiple cameras and edited in the ‘Pomplamoose’ style (thanks Jack!). You can check them out here.

Dana Falconberry releases video for Lake Charlevoix

Dana Falconberry & BandDana Falconberry has definitely been keeping busy! She’s currently on a west coast tour leading up to the October release of her new LP, Leelanau, and last week, she released the first single from the album to iTunes, the gently wistful Lake Charlevoix.

This week, we have an amazing video for Lake Charlevoix, premiered by the fine tastemakers over at Spin.com.

In an interview with Spinner, Dana describes the song:

“Lake Charlevoix is a song about falling leaves, broken rocks, frozen lakes and dissolving relationships. It’s a break-up song before the break-up happened. And a love song before the love happened.”

Shot on the US/Mexico border by Falconberry’s frequent creative partner, Matt Bauer, the video takes us into the Texas outback, a backdrop that is at times lush and inviting, and other times harsh and challenging. A perfect match to this amazing cut. Check it below!

Dana Falconberry’s Lake Charlevoix single on iTunes today plus West Coast Tour!

Dana Falconberry - Lake Charlevoix [single]Hey Y’all! We’re pleased to announce a couple of big items today, both involving the newest Antenna Farm artist Dana Falconberry.

First off, you might have heard the leadoff single (Lake Charlevoix) from her upcoming album Leelanau (coming this October) on Nylon.com where it premiered last week, or on other blogs that picked it up, like MOKB or SideoneTrackone. But now the song is available on iTunes, with a brand new B-Side, a demo version of Petoskey Stone. Nice!

But that’s not all! Dana is embarking on a 2 week west coast tour starting this weekend. These will be fun shows, and she is bringing her full band along, so if you’re on the route, get out your calendar. You won’t want to miss this!

The last two years have touring and gigging relentlessly, but they finally took a break earlier this year to lay down a set of tracks for this EP. The break is short-lived, and they’ll be back on the road for most of September and October, but in the meantime, we got our hands on some fresh songs!

The Let It Talk EP comes your way in several different formats:

1. A 5 song digital EP, coming to iTunes and other digital retailers on September 11.

2. A 2 song 7″, with a bonus download of a third song, not available on the iTunes EP!!

3. A 7 song cassette, released by the very cool Portland label, Cassingle And Loving It, in a super limited edition of 300!

Listen to Family Haircut from the Let Them Talk EP. Right Now.

So yeah, no matter what your favorite format is, Agent Ribbons has you covered! And yes, we’re taking pre-orders now on the 7″ and we’ll have the cassette in stock in a few days as well, so what are you waiting for???

Antenna Farm Signs Dana Falconberry, Leelanau LP coming this fall!

Dana Falconberry - LeelanauAntenna Farm is proud to announce the newest addition to our roster, Austin artist Dana Falconberry. We are super excited to be releasing Leelanau this fall, Dana’s third full length album and her first release for AF!

Dana came to our attention earlier this year when we heard her Though I Didn’t Call It Came EP, released in January on Sacramento’s Crossbill Records. A look at her significant role in Echotone, a great documentary on the Austin Music scene and a NY Times Critics Pick, was intriguing. But seeing her perform with a full band at SXSW really sealed the deal for us.

More on Leelanau after the jump, but first check out lead single Lake Charlevoix from this week’s premiere, courtesy of Nylon Mag:

Foxtails Brigade release video for We Are Not Ourselves

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!

Emily Jane White – Ode To Sentience – In Stores Today!

Emily Jane White - Ode To SentienceJust a reminder, Emily Jane White‘s new album, Ode To Sentience hits stores today! The cd is a deluxe matte digipak with new artwork and a bonus track not included on the European edition. Folks who prefer physical albums over iTunes downloads will find this to be well worth the wait!

This title is, of course, available on Amazon, iTunes, and all of those big retailers, but we suggest you head on down to your local mom & pop record store to support a local business with your discerning music purchase. Of course you can also head on over to the Antenna Farm Store to grab a copy. We are currently shipping all orders inside of 24 hours, and throwing in a free poster to boot!

Ode To Sentience is Emily Jane White‘s third album, and her most realized to date. Drawing upon finger-picked folk, traditional country, classical music and rock, White creates an expansive space for her intuitive lyrics and elegiac vocals. The spare skeletons of the songs on Ode to Sentience are fleshed out with subdued electric guitar thrums, diaphanous organ, ethereal pedal steel guitar, lush strings, and White’s dusky alto with its signature catch.

Want to check it out before you buy? The fine folks at Spinner are hosting a full album stream all week. Check Ode To Sentience out in it’s entirety HERE.

Finally, if you’re in the SF Bay Area, join us tonight for a record release celebraish over at Brick & Mortar, as Emily will be playing Ode To Sentience in it’s entirety with a full backing band. She will be joined by Sacramento’s Two Sheds and Jon Porras (of Barn Owl). Not to be missed.

Not in the Bay? Don’t worry, after this, EJW heads east for another couple of weeks of shows. For a full itinerary, click here.
