BADBADNOTGOOD - "Confessions, Pt. III" feat. Colin Stetson (Stream)

One of the best qualities of our friends from up north, BADBADNOTGOOD, is their can't stop, won't stop nature. They seem to always have something cooking. This new song, fresh out the kitchen, is the latest extension of their song "Confessions", once again pitting Leland Whitty's saxophone against a guesting Colin Stetson while the subdued nature of the track altogether is super easy to get caught up in its vibe. The guys drop the song as they embark on their fall & winter tour through the US (which will include their first ever run through my hometown San Antonio!) and Europe. Get hip to the newness and check out their tour dates after the jump.

BADBADNOTGOOD - "Skating" (Video)

BADBADNOTGOOD recently appeared on CBC's Strombo Show and played their holiday appropriate take on Vince Guaraldi's "Skating". Leland Whitty continues to add more texture to this band with great results. Also, I must say, I didn't see them going for a darker angle on this one. One could say that's what these guys do in their pocket, but it's still a surprise seeing what they pulled from the famous Guaraldi composition. Check out the video after the jump.

Like a week after their one-off gig in Austin last month, BADBADNOTGOOD jaunted off to Los Angeles to play a set for Red Bull Sound Select and Pitchfork, including their performing "Seasons (Waiting On You)" with their friend Future Islands' Sam Herring (I met him at Fun Fun Fun Fest, too, and he's a ton of fun to be around). Watch video from their set after the jump.

Appropriate Nerdery: BADBADNOTGOOD at Fun Fun Fun Fest X

Their day began at 3am. The day before, BADBADNOTGOOD, the quartet of keyboardist Matty Tavares, bassist Chester Hansen, drummer Alex Sowinski, and tenor saxophonist Leland Whitty, had been rehearsing in their overgrown studio in Ontario in preparation for their 7:40pm Sunday set closing down the Yellow Stage of Austin, Texas' tenth annual Fun Fun Fun Fest at the close of what was a previously damp early November weekend before the sun broke through reminiscent of Ontario's current "heat wave". It'd be a quick trip for them, barely even getting the chance to see the festival, out by midday Monday, though considering they had never seen Austin outside the chaotic, city-enveloping context of a South by SouthWest festival, this was quite the welcome gig. Their playing this gig seemed a long time coming, particularly appropriate, in fact.
