Big Tree to Oxygenate the Ché Café on 3/9

MP3: Big Tree – “This New Year”
Daytrotter Session: Big Tree – November 22, 2009

You may remember Big Tree from their string of performances in San Diego last year, and/or the Poetic Memory list of “5 Places to Feel Really Good” that they did for Owl and Bear back in July.

Since then, the Brooklyn band has recorded its as-yet-untitled sophomore album. And, in characteristic fashion, the guys and girls of Big Tree are ready to “climb to the top of a mountain and shout” about it to the world. They’ll have the opportunity to (literally) sing the album’s praises on March 9, when they’ll play the Che Cafe. In anticipation of the show, we’re pleased to post a sample of their latest work: check out the MP3 for “This New Year” and their video for “Two Seasons” (above).

Poetic Memory: Big Tree (List)

Regarding Brooklyn’s Big Tree, the live MP3 site Daytrotter.com says it best:

[They] harbor tree houses and nests in their heads, places that they shy away to when they need to feel things in their lives getting easier, even just for a second, for a half hour.

Kaila McIntyre-Bader leads this escapist ensemble, singing songs to help us envision our lives outside of urbania. In case that’s not enough for you, the band has taken the next step and actually recommended five places that will make Owl and Bear readers “Feel Really Good.”

The band is also on tour — with stops in San Diego on July 14 and 15 — so even if you can’t get to Redwood Forest in the near future, you’ll be able to travel with Big Tree from the comfort of your own fair city.
