beneath theby Andrew Weathers — August 01, 2017
Full Spectrum has a new one out for you today, the FS debut of Tree branch Twig, the Des Moines, IA-based project of Lindsay Keast. Lindsay has been a friend of the label for a long time & we're happy to finally have a chance to bring TbT officially into the fold.
beneath the fits perfectly into our Editions Littlefield series. Lindsay wrote a collection of mandolin pieces while living in Eugene, OR which were recorded after a move to Des Moines. The tunes are haunted with a quiet restlessness, voice and mandolin swirl into a gauzy mess. Always quick, Beach Sloth has shared their take on the tunes.
TbT is hitting the road this week to celebrate the release. The band will be playing in trio form & backing up FS-dude AW as the AW Ensemble. You'll find dates at the bottom, we'll have copies of beneath the on hand.
You can stream, download, & order tapes on our bandcamp page. Thanks for checking out what we're doing. In case you haven't heard already, bandcamp continues to be a vital platform in our small music ecosystem. This Friday, August 4th, they'll be donating 100% of their share of sales to the Transgender Law Center. Obviously that makes Friday a good day to pick up our new releases in digital format or anything else you've had your eye on. Over the rest of the year, we'll have releases from Andrew Weathers Ensemble & the sophomore effort from Nathan McLaughlin & Seth Chrisman.
