Korduroy and Matt Adams of The Blank Tapes have a long history together, and his music has been used in a series of great surf film’s they’ve produced, including 2010′s Stoked and Broke.

Foxtails Brigade release new video for Chat With Sivan

Shortly after Foxtails Brigade returned from their New York residency in June and before they headed to Estonia for a festival and series of gigs there, they managed to record a great live version of Chat With Sivan (the original studio version appeared on their album The Bread and the Bait).

Recorded on an old tape machine in a garden in Oakland, this is a great version of one of our favorite songs from The Bread and the Bait. Check it:

Introducing Isadora!

Izzy Rider ArrivesHey All!

Join us in welcoming the newest addition to the Antenna Farm family. Isadora Vivien, born July 17th. And yes, she can sing like nobody’s business. Still pretty punk, but the technique will come in time.

We’ve always prided ourselves on running a label that was more like a family than a business, and our “mom & pop” approach to everything we did. Well, now Jill and Paul are actually a mom and pop, and Izzy Rider is a pretty big project!

As you might suspect, Izzy’s arrival comes with a bit of a slowdown in our immediate release schedule, and we currently have no new releases scheduled for the rest of 2013 while we take some time to get to know our newest signing.

But do stay tuned for new developments from Dana Falconberry (on tour now!) Emily Jane White (new LP in November!), The Blank Tapes (US tour with Sean Hayes in September/October!) and Social Studies (unstoppable!!!).

Cheers, and once again, Welcome to the Universe, Isadora!!

Dana Falconberry Tiny Desk Concert is LIVE!

Dana Falconberry & Band Tiny Desk Concert!

Dana Falconberry & Band Tiny Desk Concert!

During Dana Falconberry‘s late spring East Coast tour, she and her band stopped by the NPR offices for a bit and recorded a Tiny Desk Concert. It premiered yesterday on the NPR site, and it is awesome.

NPR has been a huge supporter of Dana’s most recent LP, Leelanau, and we want to thank them for putting this together. We could describe the session, but they did it perfectly:

Dana Falconberry‘s songs are gentle, almost invariably delicate, sometimes mysterious and frequently feather-light. But her music’s sweet, intricate softness never stands in for strength: This is a confident songwriter, whether she’s ambling through six- and seven-minute epics (“Leelanau,” “Dolomite“) or chirping sweetly in the bouncy “Crooked River.”

The compositions on Falconberry’s most recent album, last year’s Leelanau, are sturdy enough to be stripped down for a space like Bob Boilen’s desk at the NPR Music offices. But each benefits immeasurably from the broad assortment of lovely flourishes she re-creates here with the help of five instrument-swapping backing players. What makes Falconberry stand out in a crowded field of singer-songwriters is her music’s unfailing impeccability, and this Tiny Desk Concert finds her and her crack band hitting every immaculately crafted mark.” — Stephen Thompson, NPR.
