WTF Vids

Despite all the confusion - and after three too-many cups of espresso - the producer realized that perhaps the "music video" genre isn't just a fad after all.  

He talked to the gullible folks at Burn Films, and managed to persuade them to pick a song or three and produce a video.  He described the work to the production team as "something you are very lucky to have a part in" and that it was an excellent chance "to showcase your work".  

Though perhaps not the defining examples of music videography they could be, the brothers now have two new shiny videos to showcase their work to those wacky music fans who get their music from a video site (instead of off an AM radio station as God intended).  

So, it is with great pride that we present the Official Music Video for On The Way Out (from WTF):

Please give a warm round of applause for the Official Music Video for You Are Old (from WTF):

WTF Out

As whimsical as the title, the brothers' latest is now out and available for the taking.



Yes, available for the taking - Some of the tracks are on Soundcloud, but the whole confusing thing is on Bandcamp, free for the taking.


You read that right - Free as in Bird.  WTF, right?

WTF?!?

...is coming.  If it isn't here already.  

Confused?  

Yeah.  The brothers get that.  

Live that way, actually.  Never really knowing when the ice cream will be disallowed in the cafeteria, or the lawyers will call with good news, or the orderlies will be nice, or surly, or nice and surly.  

And - getting philosophical on you - life, generally speaking, is confusing.  WTF, ya know?  

Which is why the latest Brothers Burn collection is called that.  WTF.  

A collection of cuts that identify that moment - or season - of confusion. 

Inspired by the works of Lewis Carroll.

Due out 3/1/2018, but we'll be previewing some of the cuts courtesy of Soundcloud, like this one:

It Ain't Reviewed


After all the work and pre-release pimping, "It Ain't Art" is now out and about.  Check it out on - 





AND the first review is in - The good folks at Beyond the Record wrote some kind words (that we're constantly re-reading in an effort to bolster our faltering egos):  

Effortlessly blending psyche, electro and pop; The Brothers Burn latest release "It Ain’t Art" is unique, setting new standards and crumbling traditionalists views on music.  

Check out the full review here.  Woot!

It Ain't Art - No Peace

It was while Isaac and Horace were busy mixing one of the tracks - not their favorite audio chore - that Isaac - in an act of passive-aggressive rebellion - took up the producer's laptop and began pilfering his Facebook page.  

He laughed at the Republicans, then the Democrats.  Cooed over a video of a cat lazing in a bucket of water.  Then stopped.  Clicked through on a story.  Then another, and another, and... Horace made sighing noises, meant to draw Isaac back to the task at hand.  It didn't work.  

He had found the story about Keith Lamont Scott, and the resulting furor in Charlotte, North Carolina (among other parts of the US).



The "home" frowns upon social media - and news coverage in general - citing legendary incidents of cafeteria violence that no-one can recall, so the brothers were unfamiliar with the previous police shootings.  The producer, ripping the laptop from Isaac's hands, summarized current public perceptions about police misconduct and "profiling".  

There was a moment of stillness in the room.  Then Horace asked "And people are OK with this?"  

To which the producer, trying to quell the entire topic and get them back to work, replied "I'm a people, and as long as I've got peace, I don't give a s-.  Stay off my bloody laptop.  And get back to work.  Please."

The stillness took another moment.  And then they went back to work.  

The next day - to the producer's fury - a new track was in the session list.  He bellowed at no one in particular, banging his laptop on the desk.  But he eventually indulged his curosity - it was an unheard track, after all.

And when the last waves ended - abruptly, as intended - his anger had vanished.  

Later, when Isaac and Horace came in the studio, the track wasn't mentioned.  Not then, and not ever - To this day, it has yet to be discussed.

Samples are in the public domain.  The primary vocals are extracts from this speech.
