On Tap for 2012

2011 was a big year for art, music, and culture in The City of Trees and it doesn't look like things will be slowing down in 2012.  TEENS is recording a new album.  SHADES, Atomic Mama, Night Genes, and Owlright all have much-anticipated January releases.    Youth Lagoon has a huge spring tour coming up including dates in Australia, Japan, and all over Europe.  Oh yeah, we have giant music festival coming in March (TREEFORT).  Payette Brewing Co. has been kicking ass and taking names and will also have live music pretty much every weekend starting Jan. 20th.  Here at The C.O.T. we finally launched our official line of merchandise and will get our online store off the ground in the next few weeks.  Matt Jones of Audio Milk is "taking his talents" to a new endeavor called Deer Lodge, where he and up and coming Boise film maker Tyler T. Williams create mini-documentaries showing "artists in their natural elements."  Not to mention new bands seem to be popping up left and right.  As we said, there is a butt-load of cool stuff coming to and from Boise this year and it is our pleasure to share it with you as we go along.
In order to start your 2012 off on the right foot we have posted some newer songs and videos to transition you from the Christmas Spirit into The C.O.T. spirit.  

Here's a double-dip from Finn Riggins.  Both tracks have been released in the last couple of months and are a nice little taste of what is on the horizon for one of Boise's most talented and established bands.

OLD EARZ is the new side project from David Wood of TEENS.  Word has it that there will be an E.P. coming soon.

"Cyber Me" is the first single off of Night Genes' upcoming album "Like The Blood," due out Jan. 31st.

This song has been out for a little while, but we felt it was important to share in lieu of Atomic Mama's debut E.P. "Bodies In The Sun," which comes out Jan. 24.

"Sun Path" is one of our favorite tracks off of Metaphoria the new album from Workin' On fire.  CD release Jan. 31st at The Record Exchange.

Tyler T. Williams does another stellar job, this time on the official video for Youth Lagoon's song July.

A cool little teaser video for Shades' upcoming album "Clear Motions."
