Fresh Track: River Whyless “Cedar Dream Part II”

Asheville, NC’s River Whyless dropped their debut LP A Stone, A Leaf, An Unfound Door yesterday. Singers Ryan O’Keefe and Halli Anderson weave pitch-perfect vocals over this string-driven release. The album does not disappoint and showcases a striking amount of maturity for a band that is only just starting out. River Whyless’s sound is rooted in the strings of the Appalachians, but never has the feeling of traditional or bluegrass music. Name your price for a copy of A Stone, A Leaf, An Unfound Door via bandcamp. Catch them on tour this spring with Atlanta’s Little Tybee.

Live Video: Little Tybee “Nero”

Atlanta’s Little Tybee recently dropped a live video for the track “Nero” from their 2011 album Humorous to Bees. The video was shot at The Goat Farm Arts Center in ATL. A couple of years ago, the historic location was revitalized, turning 20,000 sq. ft. facility into five separate exhibition and performance spaces. The Goat Farm proves an appropriate venue for Little Tybee, as the band recently had their hands in the visual arts as well. We featured “Boxcar Fair,” front man Brock Scott’s collaboration with kinetic sculptor Tom Haney in a previous post. Check out the video for “Nero” below.

Video: Little Tybee “Boxcar Fair”

An exciting new video recently hit the interwebs in the form of a collaboration between Brock Scott and Tom Haney. Scott is a member of the Atlanta’s Little Tybee, whose album Humorous to Bees we featured in a review earlier this year. Haney, is a fellow Georgian, specializing in kinetic sculpture.

A sculpture major in college, Scott approached Haney about creating “a unique project that was part puppet show, part kinetic sculpture, part musical performance.” They tapped Los Angeles artist Ram Bhat to paint the backdrop for a 45 foot long set. After a successful Kickstarter campaign, all the pieces were in place.

The results lay below. “Boxcar Fair” follows a wandering explorer as he happens upon a magical fair in the middle of the desert. The entire sequence was shot in a single take, with a camera mounted on a robotic dolly fixed to a rail. The song will  be featured on Little Tybee’s forthcoming album, due out in late spring.
