Around a month ago, Little Tybee embarked on a tour from Atlanta through the Northeast, into Canada, across the midwest and eventually back down South for a 3-week tour. Amidst the tour, the band had the opportunity to stop through Indianapolis, where they recorded this session with a couple of very talented bunch of people. Laundromatinee, in association with My Old Kentucky Blog, have unleashed the results for us today, in the format of these 2 videos and mp3′s from Atlanta’s Little Tybee.

Little Tybee’s new record, Humorous To Bees, is generating as much buzz as its name implies. We were psyched to see that two of our favorite music blogs decided to give some love to our new release: I Guess I’m Floating posted glowing reviews of both “Nero” and “Passion Seekers” here; and You Ain’t No Picasso gave the “Nero” video a shout-out here.
If that’s not enough to get you pumped about the new album, Little Tybee also recorded a live session for BreakThru Radio. Check out the video of “Signal Below,” below:
To celebrate the release, Little Tybee is also unveiling the new music video for‘Passion Seekers’ – a clever montage of dance scenes from classic movies, ballets and TV shows, directed by Chris Chambers.
Over the course of the past few weeks alone, Little Tybee has garnered some new-found fans from a song placement in the season finale of MTV’s “Skins”, new features from Much Music, Owl Mag and Paste Magazine as well as the releases of 2 live videos and an official music video. Having just finished up a successful 3-week tour around SXSW, Little Tybee’s music has officially become contagious as we lead into tomorrow’s release of “Humorous To Bees”.
Little Tybee has been raking in the local love in their Atlanta/Savannah base as of late, but now it’s time to show the rest of the country what the buzz is all about (pun very much intended). Kicking off their tour in just a few days in support of their upcoming album, Humorous To Bees, out April 5th, Little Tybee will be making their way through the deep South (Savannah, Atlanta, Birmingham, New Orleans) and into Austin for SXSW. Post SXSW, Little Tybee will make their way Northwest-bound hitting Ft Worth, Little Rock, Miami, Asheville, Marion, Philadelphia, and New York City before heading back home through Charlotte and finally back to Savannah and Atlanta for their CD release shows.

Brooklyn’s Paper Garden Records is very excited to announce its first ever official SXSW Showcase in Austin, TX to be held at the new and beautiful Swan Dive on Saturday, March 19th from 8pm-2am. Co-presented with our friends at Thinglink, Paper Garden’s showcase curates an audibly familiar tonality crafted with international artists. Featuring bands from Oslo, Copenhagen, Toronto, Atlanta, Philadelphia, and Los Angeles, the showcase brings an international community of bands and fans alike under one roof for a first look at some of this year’s best up-and-coming acts.
Youth Pictures of Florence Henderson (Norway) will kick off the showcase with a dreamy post-rock sound that will ease you into indie-folk rockers, Little Tybee (Atlanta) who will be touring in support of their upcoming album “Humorous To Bees”. Alcoholic Faith Mission (Copenhagen) will be up next with an experimental indie-rock sound that has been highlighted by the likes of MTV and more as a “must-see at SXSW 2011″ and is flying over in support of their new album, “And The Running With Insanity EP”. After Alcoholic Faith Mission will be the electronic-based Golden Ages (Philadelphia) who will pave the way for the new-wave pop band, Freedom Or Death (Toronto). Army/Navy (Los Angeles) will headline the night with their feel-good indie-pop songs that will keep you dancing through the night.
This hand picked showcase will give SXSW patrons a chance to see these blossoming bands as they rise to the top of the canopy. Mark your calendar for Saturday, March 19th at Swan Dive. Register now, as your badge is your ticket to this and all other SXSW Music showcases.
