OK here’s a treat! Film School‘s the exclusive world premiere of June , the first recording in 10 years by the incarnation of the band known to fans as the original Beggars lineup, after the label Beggars Banquet, which put out their self-titled LP in 2006: singer and founder Greg Bertens, bassist Justin LaBo, guitarist Nyles Lannon, drummer Donny Newenhouse, and keyboardist Jason Ruck.
Though Film School performed and recorded with various personnel before going on hiatus in 2011, this particular group of musicians hadn’t played together since 2007, until they came together in September 2014 to play was what intended as one-off show at San Francisco’s Bottom of the Hill, as a tribute for Newenhouse’s 40th birthday. That went so well, they agreed to play again — and now we have this! The four songs on June are dreamy, spacious, eloquent: everything a fan could hope for. Now give us an album, guys!
June is out today! Buy it on iTunes now.
Feb 19: The Echo – Los Angeles
Feb 27: Noise Pop Fest at Bottom of the Hill – San Francisco
