The Strange Boys will release their third album, Live Music, on October 25th via Rough Trade. Half (side A) of Live Music was recorded in April 2011 at the Austin home of producer (and Spoon drummer) Jim Eno. The second half (side B) was recorded in December 2010 at producer Mike McHugh’s Distillery, the same studio where Be Brave was recorded.
The core of the band features brothers Ryan Sambol (vocals, guitar, harmonica, piano) and Philip Sambol (bass), Greg Enlow (guitar) and Mike La Franchi (drums). Jenna Thornhill-DeWitt (Mika Miko) and Tim Presley (White Fence) contributed saxophone and guitar respectively, with both adding vocals on various tracks.
