Upcoming: Tall Tall Trees at Mercury Lounge, 8/31

New York, Tall Tall Trees will be paying a visit to the Mercury Lounge stage.  Head on down on Friday, August 31.  It all happens at 10PM and it'll cost you $10.

Check out the video for "Waiting on the Day" at the bottom of the post.  The track is from their sophomore album, moment which was released earlier this year.

Tall Tall Trees, formed in 2008, is the musical project of multi-instrumentalist/songwriter Mike Savino . Often performing on a home-rigged electric banjo sent through a number of effects pedals and loopers, Savino along with longtime collaborators Mathias Künzli (drums), Kyle Sanna (guitar, keyboard), and Benjamin Campbell (bass) create music that is a blend of folk and rock with the occasional foray into psychedelia.

Moment (February 2012/Good Neighbor Records), inspired by a group camping trip into the Alaskan wilderness, tells the story of a man yearning for escape and connection with nature. The band's sophomore album showcases their evolution from a quirky bluegrass-leaning side project into a fully formed indie-rock band. Recorded by Matthew Cullen (My Morning Jacket, Ray LaMontagne) at Dreamland Studios (Fleet Foxes, Delta Spirit) outside of Woodstock, NY, and mixed by Bill Moriarty (Dr. Dog, Man Man).
