The Strange Boys return with third album Live Music (as in, living the music), set for release 21 October 2011 via Rough Trade/Remote Control.
Live Music is the follow-up to The Strange Boys and Girls Club (2009) and Be Brave (2010). Half (side A) of Live Music was recorded in April 2011 at the Austin home of producer/Spoon drummer Jim Eno. The second half (side B) was recorded in December 2010 at producer Mike McHugh’s Distillery, the same studio that Be Brave was recorded in.
The core of the band features brothers Ryan Sambol (vocals, guitar, harmonica, piano) and Phillip Sambol (bass), Greg Enlow (guitar) and Mike La Franchi (drums). Jenna Thornhill-DeWitt (Mika Miko) and Tim Presley (White Fence) contributed saxophone and guitar respectively, with both adding vocals on various tracks.
Watch the brand new video for ‘Me And You’, co-directed by Ryan Sambol and Daniel Hill.
