We are excited about Phantom Limb, as you may have heard. Tonight the band, featuring Theodore's Justin Kinkel-Schuster and Andrew Bryant, plays its only St. Louis show of 2011 at the Billiken Club, opening for the Felice Brothers.
None of the band's music has been released yet -- its self-titled debut will be out in early 2012 on Misra Records. However, Jarred Gastreich recently recorded a pair of videos for his Show Me Show series with Kinkel-Schuster performing even more stripped down versions of Phantom Limb songs. R&R Music Labs did the audio work for the clips. The location, an underpass in south city, was chosen by Kinkel-Schuster. The sounds and feel of the spot: the bugs, frogs, train tracks, graffiti and straggling plants, make a fitting context for the songs. You can watch the first video, for "$100," on the KDHX blog. And the second, for "Dog Eaten," you can see right here.
