New band – Futurebirds and Some Tracks to Take Away

 

Right after SXSW this year, I kept a keen eye on my Twitter feeds to see what bands were loved, hated, obsessed over and caught the biggest buzz. One that sneaked into my radar and apparently sneaked under most was the Futurebirds.I’m a big fan of Aquarium Drunkard so it would make sense then that his label, Autumn Tone Records, would be made up of bands that I like. Well, so far so good because they picked up these hip Americana cats from Athens, Georgia. You can download a free EP from their bandcamp account here. A recommended track to check out is “Red Top Girl”.Futurebirds the band

Contest to win two tickets to Sunday’s show

The girl in “Red Top Girl”, or at least I believe it to be, is actually a bottle of whiskey and if you can guess what bottle of whiskey I’m thinking of, you and a friend will win two tickets to Sunday’s show at TT the Bear’s Place here in Cambridge. Either leave your answer in the comments or send them to me via email at kippy[at]hip2besquare[dot]net. I will pick the winner at random but you must get the answer right.

Debut Album – Hampton’s Lullaby

Autumn Tone will be releasing their debut album, Harmpton’s Lullaby, on July 13th. At first listen, besides the obvious category of Americana folk rock, they also add their SoCal flare. For those fans of The Walkmen, you’ll know what we’re talking about when you listen to some tracks. But for those fans of Kings of Leon, these guys are right in your wheel house. In my opinion, Futurebirds are more appealing to the ear then KoL. But hey, that’s just one mans opinion. Download a legal free track from the album below.
