It is with great pleasure that Crossbill Records introduces our new member of the family, The Loom out of Brooklyn. We will be releasing The Loom’s first full length record, “Teeth” on November 1st on LP/CD and MP3 and will be announcing pre-sale information in the coming weeks.
The Loom first garnered our attention when we discovered their “Last Light EP”. I played it quite regularly on my radio show and could immediately hear the promise of the band. Then while in NYC in the summer of 2010 I stumbled upon and was then blown away by a Loom performance at the Mercury Lounge that piqued my interest even more. When it came time to travel to Austin for SXSW this past March I made it a top priority to see the band perform once again and make a strong connection. We take great consideration when signing a band and Crossbill has always emphasized cultivating the relationship and creativity between the band and the label. We’re ecstatic to have formed this relationship with The Loom and our looking forward to the very near future as we prep the release of “Teeth”.
THE NEW YORKER:
“Beloved Brooklyn sextet the Loom…have lately been guiding their chamber-folk sound to decidedly louder sonic territory.”
PASTE MAGAZINE – BEST OF WHAT’S NEXT:
“These days, the band’s intra-band camaraderie is palpable. That perhaps-unlikely closeness especially comes out on stage…weaving rich sonic tapestries with an intangible joy.”
NEW YORK TIMES:
“Are you looking for the next big thing? If it’s folk: The Loom”
