Antenna Farm is pleased to welcome San Francisco’s Social Studies to the AF family. Their unique combination of angular indie rock and classic twee-pop will be familiar to Bay Area folks who may have seen them over the past couple of years, sharing stages with the likes of Dungen, The Pipettes, The Long Blondes, and Handsome Furs. Their high energy live shows, combined with eclectic and unpredictable yet completely catchy songwriting won us over here at Antenna Farm, and we jumped at the chance to work with them. I guess you could say they had us the minute they threw verse/chorus/verse out the window, and when you give them a listen, we think you’ll see what we mean.
Social Studies are putting the finishing touches on their debut album, Wind Up Wooden Heart, as we speak and are prepping for a late July release date. Meanwhile, the band is prepping some May tourdates, stay tuned for more on that very soon. For now, check out Time Bandit, the lead single from Wind Up Wooden Heart.
You demanded it, and we delivered. You said April 27th was just too far away, just too many weeks to wait for the new Sugar & Gold album. We here at Antenna Farm are sympathetic! We’ve been rocking this album for weeks, why should we be keeping it from you? Dates are just numbers on a calendar, and that’s a fact.
So what did we do? We told iTunes to release this jam 2 weeks early. Power to the peoples. And we went ahead and opened up our store, so you can order yourself a copy of the LP today. Bam. And yes, both the LP and iTunes version come with the bonus track ‘Closer’. Not kidding friends. We’re so serious about this, we are making you a special offer. For a limited time, you can pick up a copy of the Get Wet! LP, PLUS a copy of last fall’s AYA Remix 12″ for one low price.
So yes, to get your copy of Get Wet! TODAY, click yourself one of these links. You Will Not Regret It.
Yes, the fine people at Spinner have gotten their hands on Sugar & Gold‘s latest video release for their song AYA, and it is something else. Inspired by he films of Alejandro Jodorowsky and the ‘Alice in Wonderland’ story, storyboarded with tarot cards painted by Ernesto Ortiz, and shot in an SF warehouse, this video is everything we love about Sugar & Gold. Watch it here.
Join us Thursday, April 15th as Bart Davenport headlines a show at San Francisco’s Cafe Du Nord. Bart has been playing with a revamped band including a new vibraphonist and things have been getting heavy. Joining Bart on the bill will be the very talented Kasey Johansing and JL Stiles, the night is part of the new monthly series San Folk Disco.
SFD’s stated purpose is to provide a focus for the “splintered” SF scene “by creating a series that escapes the tired boundaries of genre, haircut and trouser-width, for an all-encompassing new genre of pure quality.” We like it, and we think you will too. Join us. For advance tix, click here. For more info on the show and the San Folk Disco series, click here.
Are you ready??!? San Francisco’s Sugar & Gold have been working hard behind the scenes the last few months, and the results are hot. Get Wet! is their second album, a total evolution from their 2007 debut Creme. If Creme was the ultimate hookup record, Get Wet! is a bit more complicated, representing the work that goes into making the relationship work. Tying together elements of Electro, 80s R&B, New Wave Electro, and German Minimalism, Sugar & Gold have crafted a transcendent pop album that is as emotionally broad as it is strylistically eclectic, an album that will move every part of your body and spirit.
Get Wet! will be officially available in stores on April 27th, but check back here on April 13th for a special pre-order promotion. Shhh!!
But when will Sugar & Gold visit my town, you ask! It’s not fair that San Francisco gets to keep the magic all to itself! Fair enough, they’re hitting the road this spring to bring the action to you. Don’t say you weren’t warned.
Yes, it’s that time of year once again when everyone and their hipster sister descend on Austin (or as we like to refer to it, Crazytown) for SXSW. One million bands playing 7 million shows for wide eyed kids and industry hacks drinking 50 million gallons of beer, booze and breakfast tacos. Well, at least that’s what it looked like on my shoes last year when it was all over.
If you’re going to be there, take some advice. Drink plenty of water. Avoid mystery meats served by vegans, and try not to drink alcohol between the hours of 3 and 7 am…and oh yeah….Go See Still Flyin’!!! They’re back from another huge Euro tour, and are there to entertain you. So get on it! Schedule below (and more shows being added every day!)
