Meet Paper Moons and Giant Cloud

Papermoons-Lazy Bones from Jordan Welker on Vimeo.



This coming tuesday (September 1st), Giant Cloud and we will be playing a show at Circle Bar with Austinian friends, Paper Moons. The experimental folk duo has been on tour since early August and will be stopping through NOLA on their way back home and we want to share their music with you and your friends. Above is a video for their song "Lazy Bones" off of their full length, 'New Tales', put out on Team Science Records. Here's where they've been.



Giant Cloud is a new band on Park The Van Records that recently moved here to New Orleans and here's what they have to say for themselves:
"Giant Cloud condensed somewhere over Lincoln Parish, North Louisiana in the summer of love, 2008. That same summer, a sweaty, overcrowded Ford Windstar named Windy caravaned most of them through the triumphs and trials of the great American West as they busked their way from and back again to Ruston. Slightly dazed and confused, each brought back their own story, abstract sunburn and new love for the freedom of an open highway. They came home to a new house never lacking people willing and ready to play music, a new music room with an absurd amount of outlets and a whole maze of house in which to experiment with new things. Impressed with their own perception, they decided to live the life of traveling cantantes, touring the universe inciting dance riots and spreading the gospel of soft/loud/soft/loud rock 'n' roll."

Here's video of them live:



Sound like fun? Come thru this coming tuesday, September 1st at Circle Bar at 9 or 10 pm or something.

Word. It's been a long long while since we posted something on here. I also left you hanging about the last 3 days of the tour. Well they went great. The rest of our summer was pretty grand too. We worked hard on tour and then chilled hard in Houston for the remainder. We are now headed back to NOLA where the grass is green and the girls are pretty. We're super excited about this school year and what we have planned. Hopefully we can pull a few of them off. One of the plans we have is this show right here.




Join us, Smiley With A Knife, and Big Rock Candy Mountain for this back to school show. Also, our friend Zack Smith will be there photographing those who attend in a unique portrait light-box he constructed for a project he's working on: to capture this new post-Katrina music community in it's early stages. Remember, this Saturday is the 4 year anniversary of Katrina. Come out and show your support for the bands and the community.

kisses,
chris
