Happy Friday, 🌎! While you’ll have to wait another week for new music from us, we want to take a moment and reflect on some other music that was delivered to us all last week at this time. Coming in at a clean 8 lbs 3oz, she arrived beaming in the warmest of vocal harmony, wrapped in swaddling acoustic/electro arrangements, with a message of hope that will resonate with anyone that can feel. Our pals in @darlingside are the proud fathers, and #Extralife is her given name. Like any great work of art, we think her life on this 🌏 is going to be a very long one. So you should probably become acquainted with her soon! Take her for a walk. Introduce her to your friends, parents, cousins and co-workers. Anyone with ears, really. You can thank us (and them!) later.

< KANDOTE 5-YEAR ANNIVERSARY!! > It's hard to believe, but this week marks the 5-year anniversary of the release of KANDOTE, our debut EP! For anyone who is just joining us or isn't familiar, Kandote is our collaboration with the Barefoot Truth Children's Choir of Kkindu, Uganda, and the not-for-profit record that we talk about at all of our shows. (And, truth be told, it's one of the main reasons we formed our band back in school in the first place!). To listen to the record, watch the music video, or learn more, click the link in the bio. Thanks for your continued support of this endeavor! It’s means a great deal to us. -B&N
on the personality scale, the state of Wisconsin takes many cakes.
one of us likes LEGO’s and has 2 cats. the other likes Playmobiles and hates cats. we both love planet 🌎 (both the BBC and real life versions). what we mean to say is, we’ve got just a few more shows in 2017, and we’ll probably be discussing all of the above (and would love to see you!) 11/30 • Milwaukee, WI w/sg @humbirdhumbird 12/1 • Marshfield, WI w/sg @humbirdhumbird 12/2 • Minneapolis, MN ‘an evening with’ FLA! 12/9 • Columbus, OH w/ @thesteelwheels
Contrary to what their band name may imply, we can confirm that the humans that comprise the @ballroomthieves are in fact some of our society’s finest (and did we mention they’re also pretty darn excellent at this making 🎶 thing??)...Thanks for rocking our socks these past couple weeks...it’s been an honor being your accomplices!
there are fans and then there are fans that request body signatures. 🤙🤙 Tour with @ballroomthieves continues! DC tonight (early show @dc9club), Fairfield, CT tomorrow @stageonefamilytheatre
anddd we’re back on the road with @ballroomthieves! Or, another way to look at it, just 4 shows til 🍗 (turkey!) time! Thurs - Harrisburg, PA Fri - Philadelphia, PA Sat - Washington, DC Sun - Fairfield, CT
who knew Enterprise rentals were so good at catching errant foul balls? Not us. Thankfully a very honorable father was behind this particular baseball, so we are happy to report that all is well in FLA land. Keep swinging for those fences, kids! (just maybe the ones in the outfield next time?)
Monday, funday...thank goodness we’ve got 3 new playlists and the whole @ballroomthieves discography to get us from Madison, WI to Philly! 🙏 to @thisdaythissong @melbossmusic and @samfish_music for putting our tunes on your respective syrupy playlists! #newmusicmonday

Be there or be square, Austin-ites!
