New Music From Foxtails Brigade Band

If Rube Goldberg designed a cuckoo clock, the music it would play each hour would be Foxtails Brigade. Intricate. Literate. Covered in Tweed.

The Oakland quintet has a new record available today. The group refers to Foxtails Brigade as an “art project” that encompasses film, photography and animation in addition to music.

CapRadio music host Nick Brunner interviewed and recorded the band earlier in the year.

He says, "They played like a well-orchestrated storm and its thunderhead is the unassuming Laura Weinbach who stands about 4’11”, leading the digital-effects-soaked cacophony with an acoustic guitar."
