Tonight, 7pm EST. Happy Sundayyy!

“Racism in America is like dust in the air. It seems invisible — even if you’re choking on it — until you let the sun in. Then you see it’s everywhere. As long as we keep shining that light, we have a chance of cleaning it wherever it lands. But we have to stay vigilant, because it’s always still in the air.” - Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (link to full op-ed in bio) Silence and inaction, especially by privileged White America (us included) in the face of this suffering and injustice, is an endorsement of the pernicious and devastating evil of racism, white supremacy, and inequality in our country. The disparities in COVID-19 cases and deaths are yet another especially visible example. Below are a few organizations we have chosen to support; please, please consider doing the same in your communities if you have the means. Make sure you’re registered and ready to vote. Have the hard conversations with family and friends that need to be had. It’s so, so important. My Block, My Hood, My City, Chicago Mutual Aid, Philly La Casa De Amistad, South Bend Standing totally with our Black and Brown brothers and sisters, -B&N
Our “Honeyguide” song (ft. @humbirdhumbird!) made it on a Spotify editorial playlist! Very grateful for this inclusion, as we could use all the half pennies we can get these days. Speaking of, if you have the means and want to help us keep the lights on during this very strange moment in history, boy would we appreciate it (support link in bio). 🙏🙏

Got to meet the makers of our beloved @eartrumpetlabs Myrtle mic this afternoon @folk_alliance and what do ya know, the humans behind the hardware are as shiny as the product. Live mini-set featuring “Maria” and “Silver & Gold” streamable on our FB page! #fai2020

Ahhh Texas, it’d been too long. So good to hang again. Onward to Louisiana!
Back at it. Austin, TX tonight @thetownsendaustin w/sg @zachmanmusic! And yes, we did stay in a Winnebago last night. Like true millennial troubadours.
We are so darn excited to announce that Brian has officially retired as our booking agent-in-residence, fulfilling his longtime dream of spending less time emailing and more time music-making in his closet. Thank you Jack Clark & @bonfiremusicgroup for granting this great pleasure. Can’t wait to see what you’ve got in store!

Had the great pleasure of sitting down with the one and only @brick_briscoe back in the spring to talk all things FLA for his @pbs show “Any Road.” The segment includes live footage (and banter!) from our Under The Radar Concert Series performance & juicy discussion on how we met, our hometown’s influence on our music, and much more.
