Big Tree
"Little EP
"
mp3

When Big Tree got around to recording Little EP, they didn’t each condemn themselves to anechoic solitary confinement; instead, they took a more organic approach and recorded all three songs together in one hyper-productive, ten-hour session onto a reel of 2” tape. Onto the result, they added three more songs, recorded live at San Francisco’s Rickshaw Stop.

The result is a warm, ecstatic album, human to its very core. Infused with relentlessly singable mantras, raw and emotive vocals, and soul-bolstering instrumentals, the album is a barefoot walk on warm soil where so many others are trips to IKEA. If there is one argument against the over-tinkered immaculacy that pervades so much pop music, Little EP is it.

Artist Feature and Ticket Giveaway: Big Tree's EP Release Show with French Cassettes and Chrystian Rawk

Read more about Big Tree’s new EP in this interview I nabbed.

Now, down to business: I have a pair of tickets to Big Tree’s Little EP release show on Nov. 15 at Café du Nord, with other local pop must-sees French Cassettes and Chrystian Rawk. The third person to shoot an email to thedelisf@gmail.com gets ‘em.

Stream and download the new EP here. Hint: if you download, you get sheet music for endless sing-alongs.

New Video: Big Tree's "Augury"

San Francisco has Brooklyn, NY to thank for Big Tree. After a few successful cross-country tours, winning the Deli's Artist of the Month poll, and two Daytrotter sessions, the band said goodbye to New York City and drove its vegetable oil powered van 3,000 miles our neck of the redwoods.

Inspired by the beauty of Northern California, Big Tree shot its new video for "Augury" in the Marin headlands and Easter Island. Watch it below or here. "Augury" is a track from Big Tree's latest full length release, This New Year, and you can download the song here.
