New Single and Screen Time

Sunday, October 16th, 2011

Hey, Flutterbies fans… Let us warm you up as the weather cools—with a sexy, swampy "Slow Ride" and some screen time to snuggle up to.

Slow Ride

Our new single is out now! It’s a cover of Foghat’s classic rock anthem "Slow Ride," with seductive slide guitars and smoky vocals. Sounds like the love child of Pussycat Dolls and Ry Cooder. Click the cover art below for streaming audio and links to purchase:

Screen Time

What do pills, porn, clowns, and card tricks have in common? The silly and subversive Cartoon Network/Adult Swim TV show Children’s Hospital, which featured our sweet love ballad "Come Alive" in the August episode, "Night Shift."

Next, check out the wacky webcast of Acme Saturday Night hosted by Don Stark from That 70’s Show. The cast kept us laughing so hard backstage we almost missed our cue to play!

*Thank you to Elliot Hochberg/booking, Charles Riley/PR, Dan Kane/Executive Producer, Leif Gantvoort/Director, Joseph Limbaugh/Head Writer, and the entire cast and crew.

Artie

Finally, we mourn the passing of Artie Colatrella, poet and dear friend, who broke on through to the other side in September. Maureen has been dancing 101 straight days in his honor. To donate to the Artie Colatrella Fund—to publish Artie’s fifth and final book of poetry and produce the video for his song "Arlington," co-written from his hospital bed with Lisa Nemzo, Please click HERE.

RIP, Artie. We love you.
