New Ladyfinger in Feb.; Little Brazil joins Anodyne…

Category: Blog — @ 5:41 pm October 16, 2008

Here are a couple newsy bits received from my e-mail…

Ethan Jones wrote to say that Ladyfinger‘s show at Slowdown tomorrow night will feature mostly new songs from their new album, which is slated for release in February on Saddle Creek Records. “We recorded in July/August with Matt Bayles (the guy that recorded Heavy Hands) at his studio in Seattle,” Jones said. Bayles, as most of you know, also produced albums by Mastodon, Isis, Russian Circles and Minus the Bear, among others. Jones said Friday’s show is Ladyfinger’s “first real Omaha show since April.” Also on the bill is Philly band Mountain High and Techlepathy.

Little Brazil guitarist Greg Edds informed the media yesterday that his band currently is bunkered down at ARC Studios with engineer/producer AJ Mogis. “Our third full-length record, tentatively titled, Son, is due to be released in early 2009,” Edds said. “We’re also proud to announce that our new album will be released on Anodyne Records (Kansas City, MO). Anodyne is the home to many acts that we admire, including The Architects, Roman Numerals, The Valley Arena, Meat Puppets and Shiner.”

I’ve been hearing about Anodyne for what seems like forever. Sounds like the band finally inked the contract a few weeks ago. In another departure for Little Brazil, early word is that Son will be a concept album. Three tracks from the record already are online at daytrotter.com (complete with comments/explanations about the lyrics). Or you can hear them performed live tomorrow night at The Waiting Room when Little Brazil opens for Crooked Fingers and The Ugly Suit. The show kicks off a two-week tour that will take Little Brazil to Ohio, Illinois and Minnesota before heading back home for a gig at Slowdown on Halloween.

Too bad these two shows (Ladyfinger and Little Brazil) will be competing with each other on the same night, but these things happen…
