LIVE AT BARBÈS album release April 21 & 23!

It's finally here! THE BRAIN CLOUD's third full-length album and first live album, Live at Barbès, will be released on April 21!  We're doing TWO album release shows in NYC - full info is on the calendar page.

The album is a celebration of our 5-year-long Monday night residency at Barbès, one of New York City's truly great music venues.  As Barbès is tiny tiny tiny, we're doing a bigger Manhattan show at Rockwood Music Hall on Friday 4/21, then bringing it home to Barbès on Sunday 4/23.

As many of you know, it's hard to re-create the feeling of a live concert in a recording studio, and The Brain Cloud is a "live" band... the intimacy of Barbès brings out something special in the music that happens there, for us and for all of the other bands that play there.  We're really happy with how this album came out - it captures the spontaneity and energy of the band better than our studio records have.  Grammy-winning engineer Brian Losch did a killer job with the sound, and we were lucky enough to have a film crew there for part of the recording - videos coming soon!!!
