PRE-ORDER “YONDER IS THE CLOCK”

The Catskill boys are fresh off a couple of raucous (one was so packed the fire department had to come and make sure the crowd was under control) and well-received gigs at SXSW 2009. The Austin American Statesman wrote that their Friday afternoon appearance at the Dirty Dog “showcased the Felice Brothers’ recent artistic strides. Material from the forthcoming masterwork ‘Yonder is the Clock’ both torpedoed hearts and shook homes. Easy highlights like the scattershot country blues ‘Run, Chicken, Run’ and ‘Ambulance Man’ offered brilliant Southern Gothic narratives.” Metromix proclaimed the show “one of the day’s highlights,” and lauded the “gypsy brand of folk-rock, heavy on fiddle, accordion and lurid lyrics.” The Telegraph in London meanwhile deemed the Felice Brothers “the shining new lights of American roots music, a quintet of rabble rousers with a drunken surrealistic spin on jazz, folk, blues and country.” The journalist continued, “I saw them twice yesterday and would watch them twice again today.”

Following a Record Release Show April 7th at the Bardavan Opera House in Poughkeepsie, NY, The Felice Brothers take to the road for a National headlining tour.

Joker’s Daughter – The Last Laugh (LP)

Team Love is proud to announce The Last Laugh the debut album from UK-based Joker’s Daughter, featuring vocalist, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Helena Costas. This fresh folk-pop excursion reveals new facets of the renowned artist and producer Danger Mouse, who collaborates with Costas throughout.

Born in London but Greek Cypriot by origin, Helena Costas studied violin from ages 7 to 13, then taught herself guitar and keyboards. As she became an adult, her mission came into focus. She wrote songs relentlessly, learned the art of production, and gained confidence as a performer as she played gigs around London.

Like a cryptic, symbolic dream, the music of Joker’s Daughter feeds on a range of conscious and unconscious influences, from classical violin training to Arthurian legend to a certain fascination with food. The result is haunting, infectious and playful, a rich harvest from a broad psychic landscape.

In 2003, she began sending her home recordings to artist/producer Danger Mouse, a correspondence that continued as his career grew. The two artists discovered a natural affinity, and launched a collaboration, which they dubbed Joker’s Daughter after one of Helena’s many shifting personae.

Joker’s Daughter is a character who gives voice to the darkness and redemption in Helena’s psyche, often with a mischievous flair. Always evolving as a musician and performer, Helena has recently taken up the bouzouki, a traditional instrument played by the muses in ancient Greek myth.

Danger Mouse is a full collaborator at every stage. His verdant production and instrumentation compliments the full spectrum of emotion in Helena’s music, from grief to celebration to happy ambiguity. Together, they make music both timeless and fresh from a strange, uncharted world.

The project also features the horns of Neutral Milk Hotel’s Scott Spillane and the string arrangements of frequent Danger Mouse collaborator Daniele Luppi.
