Tilly and the Wall looking for kids to be in a video + Simon Joyner Kickstarter album

From the Tillies: Hey y’all! Tilly and the Wall is looking for a handful of youngsters to star as a pack of love-rabid, desert youths in a new video we are making! The video will be shot on February 18th, all day, in Joshua Tree, California. We need a two 7-8 year olds, four 12-14 year olds and one or two in their later teens. We, unfortunately, have a verrrry small budget so we cannot compensate monetarily but will provide food and lots of fun!!! Please contact us at tillyvideo@gmail.com if you are or know anyone who might be interested in joining us for some awesome times in the desert! 🙂

And on another note, our dear friend Simon Joyner is making a new record that will be funded entirely through Kickstarter! To help him out, visit his Kickstarter page. We’ll be carrying the album at the Team Love RavenHouse Gallery once it’s completed.

The Catch All

Things are happening, it’s 2012, that’s officially living in the future. Let’s start with Conduits. The band’s hometown blogs picked up the news quick that Team Love was going to be putting out this much loved Omaha 6 piece with Rock Candy Omaha and Tim Lazy i both spreading the good word. Mix Tape Muse have posted the first track from the album and Chuck P at KCRW dropped the track into his show over the weekend. Conduits are on tour w/ Cursive this spring, the dates are here. Next up, the poet, the outlaw, the founding member of the Felice Brothers, elder brother Simone Felice has recorded a masterpiece that explores the darker corners of gothic america. Plenty of noise on the tubes about this one including mentions by Birds Need Feet, The Line of Best Fit, Audio Cred and the always brilliant Songs by Toad.
Simone’s playing a very special release show at the Mercury Lounge in New York City on March 30, get your tickets here. Finally, a shout out to Anika in London who tells us about her discovery of Team Love back in the day so Anika, if you are reading this, keep an eye out because some amazing stuff is coming soon….

Announcing Sea of Bees – Orangefarben

Released on May 1st, 2012 on Team Love Records, Orangefarben is as much of a reflection of one relationship as it is of the relationships we all have with one another. There’s giddy joy, desperate sorrow, yearning, fear, frustration, and a depth of emotion that can only come when sharing little or big portions of yourself with a kindred spirit. Just as Julie Ann Bee was unafraid to share so much of herself on this album, she encourages you take to Orangefarben with the same fearless abandon.

PLEASE NOTE: “Sea of Bees” WILL NOT BE IN STORES UNTIL MAY 1, 2012. ALL PRE-ORDERS WILL SHIP TWO WEEKS PRIOR TO STREET DATE.  PRE-ORDER THIS ALBUM

Announcing Conduits self-titled debut album in stores 3/20!

We are so excited to announce the release of Conduits self-titled debut album, in stores on March 20th. Check out Top of the Hill (mp3), and if you like what you hear, place a pre-order! Pre-orders will ship two weeks prior to the street date.

“Built from an equal love of drone, shoegaze, post rock, early synth, and the 1970’s, their sound exists in a world bigger than the sum of its parts: chiming guitars, steady drum beats, analog synths, proggy basslines, and beautiful female vocals that are strong enough to not get lost in the swirling soundscapes.
Though they hail from a town famous for producing singer-songwriters, Conduits’ music wouldn’t feel right played on an acoustic guitar. These guys know that a perfectly placed drum hit, a thunderous synth bass crescendo, or a squalling guitar can sometimes be just as crushing as any lyric or chord progression. They draw as much from Slowdive and My Bloody Valentine as they do from Fleetwood Mac and Led Zeppelin, and probably land somewhere in the middle. ”
