The Flutterbies August news

Tuesday, August 4th, 2009

Hey, y’all! Welcome to The Flutterbies August newsletter… This month: some exciting retail news, new pics and video for you, and more!

The Flutterbies On Sale at Amoeba Records

The last great record store! We’re pleased as punch to be on sale now at Amoeba Records in Hollywood, CA. Our EP The Flutterbies featuring Maureen Davis is shelved atop Ben Folds Five and Peter Frampton, and this month it’s also a featured pick at Amoeba’s website! We’re working on booking an in-store performance this fall, so if you’re in the neighborhood, please stop by the store, grab a CD, and ask when we’re playing!

In-Flight Flutterbies

Our single "Hummingbird Heart" is in regular rotation on Lufthansa Airlines’ Country/Folk/Americana channel. So should any of you be flying to or from Germany this month, you can tune into us on your in-flight radio!

We’re worldwide, baby.

New Pic, and Video… with Trombone!

The Flutterbies live! Pic taken by Chef Dion Trujillo at our summer residency "First Tuesdays" show last month at O’Brien’s Pub in Santa Monica, CA. Later that evening, our guitarist Adam Daniel began hurriedly packing up the Les Paul sitting on a stand in the center of the photo before it was kindly pointed out to him that the guitar, in fact, belonged to Brant Biles, soundman extraordinaire and rhythm guitarist for Bart Ryan, also on the bill that night. Alt-country outlaw, indeed…

And from the same show, click here to see video of the Flutterbies’ new friend Nick "Danger" Daley jamming improbably amazing trombone along with our new song "Shoot Me". Yes: trombone.

Video Killed the Radio Star

The Flutterbies are filming our first video, for our next single "How I Get Over You". The video will co-star our good friend Mindy Sterling from the Austin Powers movies, and S-Factor pole dancers Tracy Mueller and Christina Grance. Produced and directed by Dan Zacharias, the video will be shot August 28 at The Good Nite Bar in North Hollywood, CA. Thanks to owner/bartender Daniel for gifting us with his amazing room! Stay tuned…

Reviews

This month’s review snippet comes from a fan posting at the Independent Music Awards website. We’re nominated for this year’s awards, and received this exciting and eloquent comment from NYC journalist Tammy Quinn McKillip:

The Flutterbies are city slicker country twang, urban hillbilly, rock-n-ride amazing! Maureen Davis has the voice of an angel and a body made for sin. Sexy, soulful and intelligent, the Flutterbies are everything that alternative country should be–down to Earth and transcendent.

Thanks, Tammy!
