Critical Praise for Brown Shoe:

"Taking cues from Coldplay and Band of Horses, these four cute brothers and their equally cute friend make soaring rock music ripe for emotional movie montages." - Nylon Magazine

"Expressing heartache and loss through grand, daring musical compositions, "Diving Bell" is a song that's easy to play over and over again." - Magnet Magazine

"Brown Shoe creates intricate, huge, pop songs, glacially moving things with arena-rock heft behind them." - Pop Matters

"5/5" - Music Emissions

The Session:

Daytrotter released Brown Shoe's session last night, which was recorded at Daytrotter's studio, The Horseback, in downtown Rock Island, Ill., on April 2. Included in the session is a haunting cover of the Bruce Springsteen track "I'm On Fire," along with "The Run" from Brown Shoe's latest LP, The Gift Horse. The set is rounded out by "Aquarium" and "Goodnight Old Man;" two fan favorites from the band's catalog.

Daytrotter founder Sean Moeller had this to say about the session: "The band, consisting of vocalist/guitarist Ryan Baggaley, bassist Bryson Baggaley, guitarist Aaron Baggaley, guitarist Chandler Clemons and drummer Landon Baggaley, gives you a feeling that you're sitting in a worn out chair - with the springs jabbing you in the lower back - in a house sitting at the end of a road that no one drives on. Even less people seem to be driving by these days. It's lonely. It's heartbreakingly, goddamn fucking lonely out here, where they bring us."

The emotional place they bring us to is even more impressive given that practically the entire band was ill when they recorded their session. Aaron recalls, "We were really looking forward to playing Daytrotter for the first time, and the morning of it we woke up in Chicago to Landon throwing up in the bathroom. We all just assumed that he's a lightweight, then Chandler started throwing up and we knew something was up. By the time we started, three of us were having a bout with food poisoning. We could hardly stand, let alone load gear, but we're such big fans of Daytrotter that we just couldn't imagine not doing it. At the end of the day, we're all really glad that we got to be a part of it, even if we felt like hell while we were doing it."

The Background:

Brown Shoe is made up of four brothers-Aaron, Bryson, Ryan and Landon Baggaley-and Chandler Clemons who might as well be a brother. Their previous three albums received broad radio play, charted on CMJ, and garnered numerous TV placements. In recent years Brown Shoe has crisscrossed North America a number of times, playing festivals, clubs, and colleges, winning over a diverse fan base across the country. After touring in support of Jackalope, Brown Shoe decided it was time to get back in the studio and begin recording the manically expansive and treacherous tale, The Gift Horse, which is available now.
