Coyote Bones

I haven’t seen or heard much from this band for a long while, but I still love them.  Coyote Bones started in 2006 and has been road tripping since.  This band had originally formed to see friends and place music for them.  Coyote Bones then turned into a full fledged band that’s been recording and touring ever since. Their sounds are/were always evolving, the live show just kept getting better and better, and then they disappeared.  I feel the need to feature them because I miss seeing them live.  Their shows and music are very heartfelt, and they are the nicest people in the world.  I wonder where they vanished to?
Some bands that have influenced their sound are, of course, The Faint, Tilly and the Wall and other favorite locals such as Connor Oberst.
As far as I know they have no new shows coming up and I couldn’t even tell you the band members names because I can’t find any information about them anywhere.  If you know anything about them, send me a comment.
So checkout their videos and dance!:


The Faint

If you’re not from Omaha, then you may not know about The Faint.  The Faint is quite possibly one of the best, if not the best, Indie-Techno band to ever have come out of Omaha.  While they are gaining fame and popularity world-wide, they keep their roots true to Omaha and never forget where they hailed from.  Last Saturday night, the Faint opened up their practice space on 24th and Leavenworth and held an underground concert called Ratfest.  At Ratfest many bands joined forces and reunited to form a time machine that took all audience members back to the late 90’s.  It was awesome!

The Faint has music that is original, intellectual and danceable, all at the same time.  Their newest album dropped last August, and I’m still addicted to it.  All the songs on Faciination are really solid.  This is a CD that you can listen to in its entirety.

I think it’s really unique that The Faint also throw dance parties in Omaha called GOO.  GOO is amazing because The Faint actually DJ the dance party, along with members of Tilly and the Wall and other guest DJs that randomly stop by. You can checkout the event lineup on their GOO Facebook.  There’s always a theme to each party, so I highly encourage checking out the theme before you go, so you can plan your costume!

Not only does The Faint have amazing music, but they also have incredibly unique music videos.  I love their oldest music video for the song  “I Disappear”.  I feel that you really get a feeling of what their live shows are like.  The way in which it is filmed is really unique because they are always white, I feel that it’s a really cool metaphor for disappearing.  I also love how the synthesizer player moves with the beats in a nonchalant manner.  Take a look at the video, you’ll experience a little bit of The Faint.

And everyone in Omaha knows that The Faint always play a show in November or December, rumor has it that the date of their show will be released in the next week.  A great place to stake the lookout would have to be 1% Productions.  So keep on checking out 1% Productions and go buy tickets to their show if you’ve never seen them.  Their live shows are a mind-warp, and there’s no way that you can leave without being covered in sweat that isn’t your own and a smile on your face.
