2011 Recap

Another year has passed for Band of Beards, so take that 2011, we're still alive!

A HUGE thank you to Nate Powell for the incredible work on the album art for Fuerteventura. Everyone should check out the rest of his work. It's nothing short of impressive!

Nick Donnoli took a number of photos (including the photo for Outpatient) this year and also shot the incredible videos from our record release show. Hire him for your next project, party, or corporate event!

Speaking of the record release show videos, Paul Howell engineered the audio. I hear he's mastering jazz records for a few million dollars a week since he got tired of rock and roll bands not paying him, so don't hire him for anything. Just give him your love. He needs your love.


Here are some highlights from reviews we received this year:


"Listened to this record. Didn’t like it." CT Terry, Razorcake

"...describe(s) the current burning wish of many to frolic in the sun..." - Alexa Daugherty, Chicago Music Shopping Examiner

"...hairy bass lines, flocculent guitar solo's, and villous drum beats." - Sarah, Music She Blogged

"Nothing here is out-and-out bad..." - Jimmy Alvarado, Razorcake

" ...a little wild with guitar wankery..." and "...heartfelt sounding lyrics." - Paul J. Cornea, Razorcake

"...strong enough to warrant a cautious recommendation." - Petteri Pertola,

Referring to our debut release, Fuerteventura: "Liked their first release better." - Alan

"...not too shouty..." -

"This album is paced like a classic wrestling match." - Jay Mazeffect,

"Things go terribly awry..." -  Jospeh Regal,

"In A Word: Hairy" - Ariel Vreeland, The Aquarian

Lazlo wraps up his Top 100 countdown tonight at 8pm. Lot's of great stuff so far from 11-100, the final 10 should be solid.

Best review ever? I think so.


5 songs to beat Chicago's dreary weather
2) Multiple Choice Questions – Band of Beards
The energy in this track, defined by constantly changing chords and a singer that seems to be yelling, will wake anyone up from rain-induced insomnia. Additionally, lyrics like doing all that I can/ to keep from fevering describe the current burning wish of many to frolic in the sun rather than sit cooped up inside by a cold drizzle.
