The Sam Chase shares living room recording of new track

The Sam Chase recently took a break from his usual "kick-ass folk" when he recorded a video of an intimate solo performance of a new track in his San Francisco living room. The song, "I've Got Problems", is an introspective look at his approach to encountering the everyday problems that he shares with the rest of mankind. Without The Functional Alcoholics – his normal backing band – Chase's stripped down playing provides a unique opportunity for Bay Area music fans to hear one of the region's burgeoning talents in a raw, unplugged setting. The only audio effect at play here [...]

Foxtails Brigade to headline KALX's "Solstice In Stereo" at The Chapel

While Foxtails Brigade's Laura Weinbach isn't known to be particularly fond of the yuletide fervor (as evidenced by last year's Time Is Passed), she is all about the Winter Solstice. And to celebrate this year's longest night of the year, Foxtails will team up with a couple other fellow Bay Area groups—namely, the dreamy San Francisco quintet Farallons and Oakland's The Seshen for a wintery evening this December 20. Thrown by UC Berkeley's KALX radio station, the Solstice In Stereo un-holiday show is an easy pick for Scrooges all over the city. Below, check out last year's offering from Foxtails Brigade, Time Is Passed, [...]

Mixtape: The Orchestral Side of San Francisco Indie Rock (Podcast #317)

http://media.libsyn.com/media/thebaybridged/Chamber_Rock_Mix.mp3 Download: Mixtape: The Orchestral Side of San Francisco Indie Rock (Podcast #317) Guitars and drums may make up the core of indie rock, but a considerable number of Bay Area artists also use instruments more traditionally associated with an orchestra than a rock band. Adding strings, horns or woodwinds might seem pretentious to some -- and, admittedly, genre names like "chamber rock" and "orchestral pop" probably don't help that assessment -- but, when used deftly, these instruments can heighten a song's emotion, add weight to dynamic shifts, and provide layers of texture that generate wonderfully unexpected moments. String and [...]

Video: Foxtails Brigade – "Pan-Asian Delight"

SF's resident "chamber pop" outfit Foxtails Brigade joined forces with Bay Area filmmaking gurus The Perez Brothers to create a video for a shortened version of the track "Pan-Asian Delight", the latest single off the band's 2011 album The Bread and the Bait. The video features a montage of striking Civil War-era photographs interspersed with Photoshopped shots of the band, creating what the directors dubbed “Ken Burns meets MTV.” A gorgeously lilting track, "Pan-Asian Delight" showcases the band's stark-yet-stunning instrumentation, as well as vocalist Laura Weinbach's soothing tones and poetic lyrics. With its vintage feel, the video was intended to [...]

New video from Foxtails Brigade, playing Starry Plough this Friday 7/6/2012

Avant chamber-popsters Foxtails Brigade have released the third installment of their Farmhouse Sessions video series - this time for a new, unreleased track titled "We Are Not Ourselves." The song has yet to be formally recorded, but is slated to make the cut for the band's new album due out later this year. Produced by Jack Conte of Pomplamoose, the video features multiple nods to Warhol-esque images, while the song itself showcases a worried and anticipatory Laura Weinbach singing in her trademark voice of intent. You can catch Weinbach and Co. this Friday at Berkeley's Starry Plough, where they'll be [...]

New Foxtails Brigade video shot by Pomplamoose, catch them with Emily Jane White

Foxtails Brigade have released a new video shot by Jack Conte of YouTube darlings Pomplamoose. It's apparently the first of four videos that they plan to do together. The other three will be released on Foxtails Brigades' YouTube channel. The video is shot very much in the Pomplamoose style, where what you hear is what you see — the person and instrument making every single sound at some point makes a cameo in the video. In other words, they're keepin it real, and they can prove it. Conte explained the method to NPR a couple years ago, and it's worth [...]
