Love, death, betrayal, baseball, train stations, phantoms, pandemics, jail, and the Felice Brothers at Pearl Street.

The Felice Brothers and their long time friends and band mates Greg Farley and Christmas Clapton hail from the Catskill Mountains, where a homegrown sound has been working its way through the bloodlines for generations. Their rambling journey so far has brought them from performing in subway stations to tours across the world that have included enthusiastically received performances at major music festivals including Bonnaroo, All Points West, Outside Lands, and Langerado.

Their last full-length release Yonder Is The Clock, a phrase drawn from the pages of Mark Twain, is a nod to all of the American ghosts that lend their narrative and characters to their music. Their studio was built from the remains of an abandoned chicken coop and it was there over the summer and fall of 2008 that they wrote and recorded this new collection of songs. Presented by Team Love Records, Yonder Is The Clock is teaming with tales of love, death, betrayal, baseball, train stations, phantoms, pandemics, jail cells, rolling rivers and frozen winter nights. This is music that hasn’t lost sight of the history of the land from which it came, fully embracing the rich culture of the surroundings. It is these qualities that make The Felice Brothers the next great American band. -Caroline Bastarache
