Hi. Happy 2014. I’ve been a total blogging slacker. I’ll get better, I promise.
Although the year has gotten off to a slow start, there have been a bunch-a good music things a brewing this week, a ridiculous concert calendar shaping up through March, and The Rock Boat is only five weeks away.
But today…today brought the best thing of 2014 so far. A new (and unexpected, which makes it that much sweeter!) song and video from Mighty Oaks – the American-Italian-British trio living in Germany. AND, even better… news that they have a new album, Howl, coming out on February 28th!
The band describes “Brother” as “a story of friendship, youth, and adventure.” The video is darling. My loyal-to-the-core heart loves the story, adores the idea of friendships so strong that time can’t weather them. I’m telling you kids, this band…this band is going to win hearts in a big way. 2014 is their year.
I am already hopelessly obsessed with this song. Give it until 1:30, I bet you will be, too.
If you’re lucky enough to live in Germany, you can pre-order the new album on iTunes or Amazon. (I’m hoping that it will be available in the States soon, too… but if it’s not, I may have to find a German friend willing to buy it for me on release day!)
