Foxtails Brigade
Foxtails Brigade
The Hollywood Hills-born daughter of a horror filmmaker and sister of a cult comedian, Foxtails front-girl Laura Weinbach grew up in a household that embraced eccentricity. Her next-door neighbors were circus contortionists with emus and fang-toothed monkeys as pets and her childhood activities included snail hunting and spying on celebrity neighbors like Slash, Ice-T, and Larry from Perfect Strangers. Laura’s upbringing is present everywhere in Foxtails Brigade, from the lyrical imagery to the hand-drawn artwork and sophomoric Instagram cartoons.

The band’s live show is a clockwork of junkyard beats, warped orchestral sonics, and Laura’s trademark voice and classical guitar intricacies with an A-List ensemble featuring performing members of Bright Eyes, Van Dyke Parks, and John Kale. The songs tackle subjects of substitute teaching in the Oakland and LA public school scenes, steak appreciation, and general unfairness awareness with a warped pop sensibility akin to influences like St. Vincent, Joanna Newsom, The Smiths, and Spoon.

Following their 2011 debut album The Bread and the Bait (Antenna Farm Records), the band released their second LP. Time Is Passed (DIY) during Christmas of 2012. Since then, Foxtails Brigade have teamed up with much-celebrated producer Jeff Saltzman and his new Oakland-based label OIM to make their third LP due out in April 2016.
Everyone Is Dirty
Everyone Is Dirty
Getting Converse-sponsored studio time this summer was just the tip of the iceberg for Oakland's grungy, psychedelic, violin-wielding Everyone Is Dirty. Favorited by Noise-Pop & KQED's top 10 bands of the Bay, & with a string of raucous live shows and a great video for their single "Mama, No!!!" in the bag, they're about to deliver a 3-song EP in October that should greatly expand their fan base ahead of a debut full-length, which arrives in January.
