As if this weren’t enough, there are 2 new videos that just dropped last week premiered by Impose: in Brothers in Law’s Oh, Sweet Song, filmed by Lorenzo Musto, “the chords and keyboard hooks ascend to celestial heights, while Musto exhibits feelings of euphoria and elation that are executed in the most minimalist, yet effective assembly of interpretive presentation.”

Burnt Palms’s frontwoman Riley’s video for Over “illustrates the local splendors seen from coastal windows to the sea, shore-side vegetation, the windy two-lane twists & turns of Highway 1 and more that is something of a living postcard for the 831 area code.”

And if you want more, here are the US tour dates for the 4 bands in case you prefer to avoid Red River and 6th this week and hope in a more intimate show…

OUT NOW! Brothers in Law – Raise

Brothers in Law - Raise - cover WEB

 “When you realize that time is slipping away fast, and you have no emergency brake you can pull…then you understand that everything you do with passion has its place and is part of a path”. This is the way Brothers in Law describes the project they’ve been working on for the two years since their debut Hard Times for Dreamers—a phenomenal debut that brought them into the international indie scene, including the participation at SXSW in Austin, TX. Raise is a new chapter for the four-piece from Pesaro, Italy, and it’s not a coincidence that the title implies a “lift”, something that goes up and into the light. Eight new songs that “feel the need to go beyond that attitude of bleak despair that had inspired much of our first album. We wanted to make room for a more aware approach and attitude, as we’ve learned to accept that we have grown. We, in a way, began to understand that life is difficult, but we are the ones who can try to improve it”. This approach penetrated into the writing and music of “Raise”, resulting in a fuller sound rich with nuances and rounder arrangements, thanks as well to the addition of the bass. The ballads characterize the tracklist and the structure of the songs is more profound and mature. “Try to imagine an album as if it were a hotel where different souls were staying. All of them have something to say: some whisper, some scream notes they can hardly control. On the other hand, each song has its own life and something to tell…and we had to listen because each emerged from an urge, a necessary impulse from inside of us.” Raise, in summary, is all of this: an album that shows you upfront its’ sincere face. Raise is available on 12″ vinyl, CD and digital: you can order it from our store or catch the band on tour and get your copy straight from them!

 «Quando senti che tutto questo tempo sta scivolando velocemente, e non hai freni da poter tirare, allora capisci che tutto ciò che fai con amore ha la sua importanza, ed è parte di un percorso». I Brothers In Law cominciano a raccontare così gli oltre due anni passati da Hard Times For Dreamers, il fenomenale album di debutto che li portò all’attenzione della scena indipendente non solo nazionale, grazie a un lungo tour in Europa e negli Stati Uniti, culminato con la partecipazione al SXSW festival di Austin, Texas. Raise è un capitolo nuovo per il trio pesarese. Non a caso, il titolo allude al concetto di “risollevare”, qualcosa che sale verso la luce. L’album racchiude otto nuove canzoni che «sentono il bisogno di andare oltre quell’atteggiamento di desolato sconforto che aveva ispirato buona parte del nostro primo album. Vogliamo lasciare spazio a un’attitudine più consapevole, abbiamo imparato ad accettare che siamo cresciuti. In fondo, è come se volessimo capire che la vita è difficile, ma soltanto noi possiamo provare a renderla migliore». Tutto questo, in qualche modo, è filtrato nella scrittura e nei suoni di Raise. Una musica più ricca, carica di sfumature grazie all’aggiunta stabile del basso in formazione, e di arrangiamenti più rotondi. In scaletta prevalgono le ballate, e la struttura delle canzoni si è fatta più profonda, matura. «Puoi immaginare un disco come un hotel dove “alloggiano” diverse anime. Tutte hanno qualcosa da dire, alcune sussurrano, altre urlano su tappeti di note e voci che puoi difficilmente controllare. Allo stesso modo ogni canzone ha una sua vita, qualcosa che deve raccontare, e devi accettarla perché sai fin dentro le ossa che è figlia della necessità». Raise vuole essere questo, un disco di cui riconosci subito la faccia sincera. Raise è disponibile in vinile, CD e digitale attraverso il nostro store, oppure direttamente ai concerti dalle loro stesse mani!

Brothers in Law are back! New album and live shows

brothers in law - poster (2015)
Sono passati due anni e finalmente lo possiamo annunciare: i Brothers In Law stanno per tornare. Due date dal vivo, il titolo di un nuovo album e una data dell’anno prossimo, da segnare già sull’agenda.

La band pesarese pubblicherà il seguito dell’acclamato debutto “Hard Times For Dreamers” il prossimo 29 gennaio per We Were Never Being Boring collective (www.wwnbb.net). L’album si intitolerà “Raise”, e questa semplice parola vuole racchiudere il desiderio di risalire verso la luce, sentimento chiave per la nuova fase della band. Arriverà a breve anche un nuovo singolo, ma per ora resterà una sorpresa.
Nel frattempo, i Brothers In Law cominciano a portare le nuove canzoni in giro per l’Italia:
23 Ottobre @ Covo Club – Bologna (http://www.covoclub.it)
24 Ottobre @ Spazio Aereo – Marghera VE (http://www.spazioaereo.com)

In entrambe le occasioni, i Brothers In Law saranno supportati dai giovani e promettenti compagni di etichetta Hund.

Jack Eden – self titled debut EP – OUT NOW!

Jack Eden is the nocturnal and solitary soul of Giacomo Stolzini, vocalist and guitar player from Brothers in Law. Inside this self-titled EP, however, we don’t find the saturated guitars that we know and love, but instead a black and white of synthesizers and drum machines finished with a breath of cold reverberations. It’s sorrowful and melancholic pop that reminds one of a Suicide’s show, some afternoon in January, standing in front of the ocean, many years ago.. For his solo project, born in 2013 while tinkering with an old Casio, Jack has decided to reduce the instrumentation to a minimum, working all by subtraction and with very little effects. The result is this concrete debut EP, in which the eternal struggle between the gloom of certain atmospheres and the sweetness of the melodies is a never ending ping-pong match. Jack Eden is out now digitally from our bandcamp pages. Download it!

Jack Eden è l’anima notturna e solitaria di Giacomo Stolzini, già voce del trio pesarese Brothers In Law. Dentro Jack Eden, però, non ci sono le chitarre sature che conosciamo e amiamo, ma un bianco e nero di synth e drum machine, e un soffio freddo di riverberi che avvolgono ogni cosa. Pop dolente e malinconico come un concerto dei Suicide davanti al Mare Adriatico un pomeriggio di gennaio, tanti anni fa. Per il suo progetto solista, nato nel 2013 giocando con una vecchia
Casio, Jack ha deciso di ridurre la strumentazione al minimo, lavorando tutto per sottrazione e con pochissimi effetti. Il risultato è questo deciso EP di debutto, dentro il quale l’eterna lotta tra la cupezza di certe atmosfere e la dolcezza delle melodie è una partita a ping pong che non finisce mai. Jack Eden è scaricabile da ora sulla nostra pagina store. Scaricalo!

Colours (peekaboo rework) – Totem (video) – “Twin Days” (part two)

In the last few days we’ve received a lot of good news and gifts..which is awesome! Here we share with you a few of them: the song up here is a very cool remix of Be Forest’s Colours realized by Peekaboo, while the following video is a gift from a fan who put Be Forest’s Totem on a movie from 1957! How cool is that? The movie is called Adebar and it was directed by the Austrian experimental film-maker Peter Kubelka. Take a look!
 

And if you happen to be around Rome, don’t miss the second “Twin NIght” at one of our favorite venues there: Circolo degli Artisti. This could be a good chance to cash-in those forgotten miles for a trip to Italy and attend an unforgettable show with Be Forest and Brothers in Law together!
