8/11/11 Out Of My Dreams

Wow, where to start?

How bout the Breaking News: White Flight has announced a Kickstarter campaign to make a new record - and accompanying film - with an amazing video dispatch from Hawaii and a list of donation prizes (from a Quartz necklace to a Home Performance(!)) that should get any White Flight fan frothing. I plan to pledge $333 and get his acoustic version of this ; ) Deadline is Oct 2nd. Let's do this!

"Say My Name 2", the fantastic second record from our man Say My Name, has a release date: September 20th, 2011 on iTunes, Amazon and Bandcamp! Grab first single "La Cygne" HERE and stay posted for a few videos and remixes that can't not be rad, since they're chasing the comet's tail of "Say My Name 2" and Kenneth Kupfer's masta killa cover art. (UPDATE: Stream "Say My Name 2" at the Kid's Bandcamp.)

Good luck to Fourth Of July this Sunday, August 14th at the 2011 Pitch Music Awards. They're nominated in the "Indie Rock" category. You can still cast a Vote.

We're happy to have some new, iconic Fourth Of July t-shirts on sale in the Range Life webstore. Girls' and Guys' fits. Black t's with dark gold lettering. Eagles and Founding Fathers. Pretty pimp. There's also a package deal with a T-shirt and CD for $25, including shipping. And if it's digital you're after, for the rest of August the sophomore Fourth Of July album "Before Our Hearts Explode!" will be On Sale at their Bandcamp for $5. Get it while it's Hot Hot Hot!

While the boys figure out their recording sitch, you can enjoy Brendan playing a new song, "Colorado", on the back porch of a condo in Lake Tahoe a few weeks ago, thanks to our Aunt Jeanne. And the indispensable I Heart Local Music shot some of a stripped-down Fourth Of July playing their epic send-off "Berlin" on the Ink KC songwriter stage at the Kanrocksas Fest. KC Kids! - you're bound to hear these tracks - and a bunch of other new ones - Saturday, August 27th at the Brick, where they'll be playing with the ACB's and Full Bloods.

San Francisco: Don't Miss Extra Classic this Friday night, August 12th, playing an Outside Lands Festival night show at the Rickshaw Stop with Vetiver and tUnE-YarDs! Nice write-up about it in SF Weekly. The debut Extra Classic record "Your Light Like White Lightning, Your Light Like A Laser Beam" will be out September 27th on Manimal Vinyl. In the meantime, download this dub of album track "You Can't Bring Me Down" from Pop Matters.

Some video of Suzannah Johannes playing a lilting new song the other night at Love Garden in Lawrence and a nice journal entry about the show from The Larryville Chronicles. (Update: More video of Suzannah from @Oxfordist and you can now follow Suzannah on Twitter!)

More on "Say My Name 2" and Fall plans next time.
