Discography

Flowerstalks is a new formation of old songs. Several of the songs to be featured on this June's full length album "Calamity Dance", have been featured in previous collaborations. However, the style and disposition of the current Boston based formation have no official releases or press reviews. Premixes and live performances are available through youtube and on myspace. We have played several shows in the Boston area but are basically buried in the massive of undertaking of a highly produced full length. At this point we are almost completely unknown, but we have relentless energy supported by delightful surprise present in live shows. Our album will is scheduled for release in June. We will have support in Minneapolis, The Northeast, Austin, and The northwest.

Bio

Flowerstalks is breaking ground using the tools of punk that were set forth by Pixies, Fugazi and Modest Mouse. It is digging towards Velvet Underground, The Beatles, Wilco, and The Flaming Lips. The future for Flowerstalks is Django Reindhardt, Robert Johnson, Chet Atkins, and Sacred Harp Singing.

The stories in Flowerstalks come from listening and learning through physical and immediate life in front of us as well as those cast in other forms over time. From the sights, sounds, and words of Fydor Dostoevsky, John Updike, Bob Dylan, The Clash, Johnny Cash, Leanord Cohen, Cormick McCarthy, Towns VanZandt, Fight Club, Apocolypse Now, There Will Be Blood.

The songs are serious but not pitiful or melodramatic. They are ironic and playful but not self removed or abstract. This is music of intimacy and confrontation in the vein of A Boy Named Sue, Heroin, Strawberry Fields Forever, Sliver, and Gouge Away.

We are different because we care more. We care like Arcade Fire did on Funeral. We care like people do who have to because they just realized the whole world is burning and always has been. Our place is to sing you the song. Our job is to learn how.
