Soundcloud streams and NPR premieres seem utterly played out, especially while suffering under the weight of late-December list-making rituals. Who thought that calling up a phone number to hear an album preview would be so novel in 2012? That is just the tactic Foot Village have used to build up anticipation for their forthcoming LP Make Memories, their fourth overall and their first for new label home Northern Spy. Check out the above video and stay to the end for a preview of the telephone live stream experience. FV's very own Brian Miller had this to say about the upcoming album and their decision to "go analog" for the stream premiere:
"From the get go, using just drums and voices to make our music, we've been questioning if things need to really get done a certain way. We're hardly Luddites, but technology seems to develop faster than people explore all the uses for it. It's exciting to find a new way to use the things in our lives. Streaming the album through a phone just felt right for what we do as a band, and for the escalated level of mystery this new album has compared to the in-your-face attitude of Anti-Magic."
Make Memories comes out March 19th, available for pre-order now.
