Talk Talk: New Gauntlet Hair music; Flobots go bowling; Boys to open for Jane’s Addiction; Pretty Lights in a Terrence Malick film?By Julio Enriquez | September 22nd, 2011 | No Comments »
I nearly choked on my chaw this morning while riding Zorro (my horse) to the office this mornin’ while listening to “Keep Time,” the rockin’ new track that Fader premiered yesterday from Gauntlet Hair off of their S/T album for Dead Oceans October 18.
The Lumineers need your help
Bad and good news for the Lumineers. First, the bad. The Lumineers are victims of a van burglary that resulted in the loss of multiple instruments. As they say, “the show must go on,” and so it went on. The Lumineers played their most recent LA show with borrowed instruments. You can help their cause by donating to their PayPal account over here and be on the look out at pawn shops if you so happen to be in the LA area. F’n vagrants, man.
LAPD Case # 110919003768
Stolen Instrument Details:
(1) Glaesel Cello 4/4 Serial #9W799
(2) YAMAHA Acoustic (FG110 & FG150) Guitars
(1) SILVERTONE Electric Bass Guitar (BLACK)
Now the good news! The Lumineers stopped by Daytrotter several weeks ago to lay down a session and fans can be on the lookout for the visit to be released sometime soon.
Coming soon: The Flobots Bowling Ball 3

Boys win Guitar Center contest, opening slot for Jane’s Addiction
Things are looking up for Boys nowadays. Not only did they win a big ol’ Guitar Center contest, which comes with some nicely appreciated dough and a Guitar Center spending spree to the tune of $10,000, but the manic rockers have also scored an opening slot on tour with Perry Farrell and Co. (Jane’s Addiction) in some major markets: Chicago, New York and L.A.
Tin Horn Player on the “Crime Scene”
Tin Horn Player’s newest video for “Crime Scene Cleanup Team” reminds me of that one scene from “Pulp Fiction” where Jules and Vincent Vega blow Marvin’s brains out inside of a moving vehicle only to have the Wolf facilitate the speedy cleanup. We at Reverb have the utmost confidence that nobody was hurt during the shooting of the video. We hope.
Terrence Malick, Christian Bale and … Pretty Lights?
ACL was this past weekend, and if you didn’t catch Reverb’s extensive coverage of the blistering fun-soaked weekend, you can do so here. Austin resident and movie director Terrence Malick gallivanted around ACL with camera crew in tow with none other than the Dark Knight himself, Christian Bale. According to First Showing, the crew caught a couple of shows that involved shooting. The three shows mentioned in the post were Coldplay, Bright Eyes and Pretty Lights. Let’s hope the scene makes it past the cutting floor.
Big Gigantic’s new, um, gigantic single
Alright, I promise never to do that again. I got my first taste of Big Gigantic at the Global Dance Fest (check out the review here) and the sax/drum combo set themselves apart from anything I witnessed that night. The duo will release their full length, “Nocturnal,” next month. However, instead of waiting till next month, you can sample their first single, “Rise and Shine,” below. Look for Dominic and Jeremy from BG to hit the road with besties, Pretty Lights and Bassnectar this month till the end of October. Photo via Julio Enriquez.
Jimmy John’s says THANKS today
My wife makes me fun of me for ordering a $6 sandwich for delivery. You know, those days that you’ve been in bed all day in your pajamas without being able to focus on your coffee mug. As a token of their appreciation to the residents of Boulder, Denver, Dillon, Ft. Collins, Greeley, Laramie and Longmont, Jimmy John’s will be offering up their delicious sandwiches for $1 between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. today (September 22). You know, for sprouts and giggles.
