Foxtails Brigade Announce New Video, New Album & Tour Dates!

The ever-industrious Foxtails Brigade have been hard at work over the last few months working in the studio with producer-extraordinaire Jeff Saltzman on a new album, their first since 2012′s Christmas release Time Is Passed and 2011′s The Bread and the Bait. “Working with Jeff has been great,” says Laura. “We’re really excited about this album.”

So far no release date yet, but the band just signed to the up and coming Oakland label OIM Records, and we should expect something shortly after the beginning of 2016. In the meantime, the band is doing a short tour of the west coast and has released a great new video for the track ”Far Away and Long Ago”. Shot in one take by drummer Dominic Mercurio, the video channels Stanley Kubrick at his atmospheric best.

Be sure to check out the band on tour as they make their way up and down the west coast.

Remember back in April when your faithful AF editor got all pissy because The Donkeys were heading out on the road but skipping the West Coast? Well what goes around comes around (or something like that, anyway) because the boys are back on the correct coast for a string of awesome looking dates at some of our fave venues.

LA, Portland, Vancouver, Seattle? Covered. As for the Bay, if you want to check these guys out this time, you gotta head up to the Gundlach Bundschu Winery this Saturday for the Huichica Festival. This always awesome jam features some great acts this year, including the Tyde, The Allah-Las, Gap Dream, EDJ, and a new AF fave, Ryley Walker. Plus many more. If you head up, you can find the AF crew rocking out in front of the stage or lurking by the wine dispensaries, come and say hello!

The Blank Tapes Announce Tourdates with Howlin Rain!

TBT - Geodesic Dome Piece

TBT - Geodesic Dome Piece

The Blank Tapes have a new LP out, courtesy of our friends over at Royal Oakie records. Geodesic Dome Piece is a collection of older TBT recordings that have been freshly remixed and that revolve around a specific theme. You can guess what it is when you realize that the lead single is a catchy tune called Way Too Stoned.

Featuring 12 tracks of stoned-out rock n’ roll bliss—ranging from jangly guitar balladry to electric sitar psych-outs, neo-pop nuggets, 70’s rock juggernauts, and heavy fuzz freakouts—this is the first full length record from The Blank Tapes since 2013′s breakout release “Vacation“.

Anyhoo, Matt and company have spent a lot of time on the road lately, with a 6 week EU tour that wrapped last month. But it’s been a while since they’ve done a west coast run, and we’re overdue.

The dates below, with like-minded psychedelic warriors Howlin’ Rain ought to rectify that. These shows will be JAMMERZ.
