Funny thing. On yesterday’s rainy cool LA morning, I stumbled across a golden new Family of the Year track:
from their new 5-song EP Through the Trees (Hero, Chugjug, The Barn, Stairs, and The Princess and The Pea) which even sports a reggae-flavored piece with contribution from friend and LW veteran Willy Mason. I was thinking, “Oh, yeah. I love these guys from right here in Silverlake.” And then this morning, I received a nice newsletter from the band with info about their upcoming tour plus a new, unreleased track, Chrissy, free for download. To get the new song, go to Family of the Year’s website and sign up for their mailing list.
Except Chrissy, all of the new songs and tour dates can be found at their myspace page. Be sure not to miss the transfixing and poignant Hero. Check out Family of the Year at the Bootleg this Friday, April 9th. Later in the month, the band teams up with sweet LA popsters, Gold Motel for an eastern states tour.
