Our drummist and buddy Mathias Künzli will be on the road with Regina Spektor this Spring and Summer in support of Regina’s excellent new album “What we Saw from the Cheap Seats”. Check out their tour dates and go say hello! Go Künzli!
‘Folk-rock’ isn’t exactly the brand of generic tagline to ignite any great sense of radiantly aflame hankering to press play. However in the case of Brooklyn outfit Tall Tall Trees it does them a great disservice: Highwire, streaming below, is the outrageously charming opening track to their sophomore record moment, expected February 21st via the somewhat arcane Good Neighbor Records. Moreover, sprawled over five-plus minutes, it’s something of a pearly wonder worth infiltrating any clam for: propelled by an ebullient bass line that scales the headiest of fretboard heights, it initially rumbles like a runaway freight train transporting insouciant wayfarers from pillaged A to unchartered B. Then three minutes in the breaks are cut as a proggish guitar line that’d turn Steven Drozd’s brain to a polychromatic mush of glee intervenes, before giving way to something of a cosmic wig-out as this quietly raging behemoth eventually grinds to an exasperating halt.
