We have released our love letter to one of our favorite bands, Pavement, an eight-song EP recorded live at Oakland’s Awaken Cafe, April 18, 2014.
Tracks are: Grounded, Stereo, Gold Soundz, Date w/IKEA, Billie, In the Mouth A Desert, Serpentine Pad and Rattled by the Rush.
Online for streaming and free download for a limited time of our choosing.
Bay Bridged asks (rhetorically) "What more could you ask for in a video?"
Someone at Ion Magazine says it “reminds me of creepy nineteen seventies Sesame Street.”
We dodge questions from Impose while Sjimon Gompers proclaims "Though their moniker makes a nods to the South American country of their namesake, Brasil’s embraces their Oakland home with a commitment to excellence, and holding down their post in the face of all threatening adversity." We can only hope.
And IndieRocks Mexico digs it.
The digital age has given artists the ability to increase their audience without the aid of a record label. Now any technologically inclined act can record, manufacture, market, and distribute its music, and many relish the autonomy.
Check out this great new feature on Brasil in this week’s East Bay Express….A big thank you to Sam LeFebevre!
These guys from Oakland, Calif., just put out their self-titled debut, and it appeals to the part of me that worships Guided by Voices, R.E.M. and other solid, smart bands.
Thanks USA Today! I did not know they covered music…
Some nice press in the wake of our debut album’s release:
A great review in the East Bay Express.
Impose Magazine dissects it song by song and interviews Jasper.
SF Magazine declares they are "obsessed with" it.
SF Weekly blurbs "its excellent song craft defies any trappings of nostalgia."
Additionally, the album is/will be available at Oakland’s VAMP Music, 1-2-3-4 Go, Stranded, Amoeba Berkeley and SF and Aquarius Records. Please feel free to snap up a new LP there and support our favorite places to spend all our money this side of Reno.
Our debut album is now available for streaming and pre-order. Enjoy
Drunk At The Controls, video by Mike Harris and Tom Ferguson
Getting weird at band practice with some of the East Bay’s best.
Another sweet writeup of our new video, as well as an interview with Jasper and Tom.
Then it gets to that chorus, and oh woman — you just might have that “Drunk at the Controls” line stuck in your head for days. (At least, we have.)
