A Great Big Pile of Leaves plays Music Hall of W'burg tonight (07.26)

Around since 2007, A Great Big Pile of Leaves has been slowly but surely building an enviable fan base through their quality indie pop, that turns the sonic clock back to the more or less alternative pop of the 90s, from early R.E.M. to Prefab Sprout. Led by Singer/guitarist Pete Weiland and drummer Tyler Soucy, the group released their third and most acclomplished album in 2013 and spent the last couple of weeks touring with Braid. The second to last leg of the tour will see them perform at the Music Hall of Williamsburg tonigh July 26.


A Great Big Pile of Leaves unveils 'Snack Attack' from upcoming album

What's worse than finding yourself lying awake late at night, requiring nourishment, but stuck with the realization that nothing all that edible is open at 3 in the morning? A Great Big Pile of Leaves can relate. When lead singer/guitarist Peter Weiland found himself in this predicament, his mind went about creating the Dismemberment Plan-sounding ode to this dilemma for the band's new track 'Snack Attack.' Frustrations be damned if this isn't one of the group's most satisfyingly catchy beach-pop songs yet. Weiland puts it best: "The song is like a trip to the boardwalk and a ride down the tallest, twisty-est waterslide on the hottest day." Just remember to take care of your munchies after going down that waterslide.

The band will release You're Always On My Mind on July 2nd (Topshelf Records). Join them for their record release at Webster Hall's studio on July 13th, and check out 'Snack Attack' below. - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets)

A Deli premiere: A Great Big Pile Of Leaves' "Writing Utensils" - live at The Knit on 07.13

From a band who usually sticks to rocking out amid rakes of guitar fireworks and endless drum solos (like in their previous records ‘The Fiery Works’), new single ‘Writing Utensils’ from Brooklyn based A Great Big Pile Of Leaves reads with a sense of either relief, or possibly foreboding… depending on how you interpret its softly churning melodic lines, and gently washy vocals, interrupted eventually by an ominous ending that may be hinting at greater madness to come.

Could this portend a new range for the band? Are they really softies at heart, or sinister and ready to pounce? We’ll have to wait until they release their ‘Making Moves’ 7” slated for July 24th to find out. in the meantime, don't miss their show at The Knitting Factory on July 13. - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets)
