Foundry Field Recordings Plot Out Spring Tour

We haven't heard much from Foundry Field Recordings since 2007's Fallout Stations EP, but judging from the band's touring schedule, it looks like things may be ramping up in the FFR camp. The band has scheduled an early Spring tour that includes the midwest, the west coast, and then a number of dates at South By Southwest.

To be honest, in recent months the band has really fallen off of our radar, mainly due to inactivity. That being said, we've supremely enjoyed everything they've put out, and seeing that the band hasn't disappeared into the ether has us really excited. Given that we've never seen the band live, we were psyched to see that there's a (location TBA) San Francisco date lined up for March 10th. Hopefully we'll get to hear some new material in addition to the awesomeness that graced their existing record and two EP's.

In the meantime, click below for some great mp3s from the band's 2007 Daytrotter Session. Our personal fave is Buy/Sell/Trade, but they're all great. If these tracks don't convince you to check out the band's live show, we're not sure what will.
