Don't miss the The Loom video for "For The Hooves That Gallop, and the Heels That March" off their debut album, Teeth!

Tour starts this Friday and album hits shelves on November 1st, 2011 via
Crossbill Records

In advance of their sold-out album release show last Friday night during the midst of CMJ in Manhattan, The Loom premiered their video for "For The Hooves That Gallop, and the Heels That March" on NPR! On Friday, the band is hitting the road in support of their debut LP, Teeth!

Out November 1st on Crossbill Records, the album sways from somber drones of distortion and lonely French horn to manic layers of trumpet, guitar fuzz, and cymbal crashes, its resonance lies in the way these contrasts conjure the idiosyncratic personal details and experiences, both immense and minute, of everyday life. They tell stories of regret and renewal – of characters “doing their dishes in the dark” even while “trying to make the days feel long” – offsetting minor notes with major keys and tempering squall with calm, just as DM Stith’s striking cover image evokes both lightness and dissonance, growth and decay. Or, as “The Middle Distance” says, in a line that could be a statement of purpose for the record, “This is for the ones who still have joy inside their hearts – may you always find it where you don’t have to look.”
 Live, the band brings a kinship to the stage that results in close harmonies, rich instrumentation and sonic exploration that leaves attendees in joyful awe!
