We like so many things over here,  so we decided to start a website where we could share all the things that we think are great.  On it there will be a lot of exclusive behind the scenes photos and videos from our own bands as well as other bands we think rule. It will feature content we create on the road and at The Farm Family location. as well as content sent in from the artists we admire. So no, this site is not just about music, it’s about all kinds of art. So join in, it is still a work in progress… but you gotta start somewhere…

Sound Select Interview & Live Audio: Get To Know Zorch

Zorch are currently on tour see ALL dates / details HERE

It’s hard being in any band – but it’s especially tough for a two-piece.

When a duo doesn’t work, they can sound like an incomplete group. When it does work, however, there’s a certain chemistry that other bands can’t replicate. The Austin-based twosome Zorch — which played a Red Bull Sound Select show last month in Dallas — has this chemistry in spades, along with a knack for creating the sonic illusion that there are more members. Almost every song has a layered depth that’s very tricky to pull off live; while the music might seem like it’s about to go off the rails, it’s intricately planned and coordinated.

Sam Chown (a.k.a. Shmu) and Zac Traeger first met as dorm-mates at Boston’s Berklee College of Music. They built up both a friendship and a musical relationship, improvising two to six hours a day, though it wasn’t until the two moved away from Boston that they began writing their own music. Their decision to stay a duo was inspired by fellow two-piecers Lightning Bolt and Death From Above 1979, along with the breakthroughs in synth and computer technology for live performance.

SPIN Premieres Zorch track from Sgt Peppers Tribute album and Announces Tour dates with Fujiya & Miyagi

imageimageimage

So far, the details about the Flaming Lips’ forthcoming tribute album to the Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band are about as ambiguous as the chicken-scratch list of contributors frontman Wayne Coyne posted on Instagram. However, we now have a fresh cut from the recording process courtesy of Zorch.

We’re told the Austin psych-pop duo’s version of the famous LP’s titular track (below) is an outtake, and that Coyne also tapped Tegan and Sara, Foxygen, and My Morning Jacket for covers of the same tune. Some permutation thereof will end up on the final release, alongside the likes of Lips side project Electric Würms, Miley Cyrus, and Moby, whom we interviewed about the experience last month. We also had a chat with Coyne at Outside Lands about hitting the studio with Cyrus for the upcoming album, which is titled With a Little Help From My Fwends. According to the record’s iTunes preorder page, it’s is due out October 28.

Judging from Zorch’s contribution, the other bands who recorded a version of “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” have a lot to compete with, including a painstaking and ingenious recording process. The pair enlisted vocalists like Holland Andrews, Emma Ruth Rundle, Karla Manzur, Ben Aqua, Rich Aucoin, and Sam Chown to sing the track, then cut up each syllable and pieced it back together. Each syllable is sung by a different combination of the vocalists that never gets repeated, and the result is a borderline-noise take on a classic anthem.
