The next day included yet more radio which whilst fun was starting to take it’s toll on us. The show that night, which was, at the risk of sounding repetitive, also sold out, took place at uber cool Brooklyn venue [The Bell House] with uber cool Swedish band Wildbirds And Peacedrums who you should definitely check out. Somehow i had managed to loose my shoes before the gig so was forced to perform bare foot. As Jeremy had earlier told me my feet were “˜sexually attractive’ i was feeling pretty confident. There was a pretty good vibe after this show as it was the last show of what was an grueling mini-tour that hopefully increased our fan base and not just our carbon footprint. For both New York shows we were joined on stage by Jon Natchez (Beirut) who played accordian and sax and is all round awesome. [Fanfarlo.com]

Like I said in the title of the post, Fanfarlo‘s brilliant debut record gets a “proper” US release on Tuesday (October 13) via Atlantic Records. If you crave the physical object, and you haven’t picked up your copy of Reservoir yet, (it’s been available on their website since the summer), then I highly recommend you go out to your local record store and pick one up tomorrow.

I caught Fanfarlo at the Bell House in September and I was really impressed with the way the songs on the album played live (and the number of people in the audience who knew the words to most of the songs). But, just in case you missed that show (or the one at Bowery the night before), do not be alarmed, Fanfarlo will be back for CMJ and they’ll be playing 4 shows in 3 days (2 CMJ showcases and 2 free parties). More photos from The Bell House show, a set list, and all CMJ tour dates after the jump.

PS Not to toot my own horn too much, but I had a hand in getting the multi-talented Jon Natchez to sit in with the band for the NYC shows. (A feat which got me vicariously mentioned in the New York Times.)
