FENDER HEART CIRCLE

Sydney-based indie-pop connoisseurs, Circle have been announced as band ambassadors for the upcoming Fender Music Foundation campaign. Following in the footsteps of previous supporters including quirky quartet OK Go, Circle’s video will depict the importance of music, the primary cause of the organisation. The video features Circle’s key track “All The People”, lifted from their upcoming album The Middle, which is to be released 1 August through Monday Records.

The film clip for All The People is set to become a showcase piece for the organisation’s next phase. Humanitarian messages in the song echo the nature of the charity’s work, striking a chord with The Fender Music Foundation’s Executive Director, Moriah Scoble.

“Circle’s video is a beautiful story about the universal power that music has over people,” said Scoble. “The teachers who have received instruments from our organisation often report back to me of this, how music has given their students a place to belong and a way for their students to learn to better communicate with their peers.”

Through this ambassadorial role, Circle hopes to incite potential patrons to join with them in support of the organisation.

The Fender Music Foundation is a charity that works alongside Fender Musical Instruments Corporation. The purpose of the initiative is to support the programs that uphold the integrity of music education, primarily in schools, by providing them with musical instruments. The Fender Music Foundation has reached over 150,000 people since 2005. The guitars used in OK Go’s recent music video, which went viral, raised a significant sum for the charity, Circle is hoping their efforts will do the same.

17 Pygmies Launch Pledge Music Campaign

On Wednesday, July 25, 2012 17 PYGMIES will launch a PledgeMusic site in an effort to fund its next CD project titled “Isabel”. In much the same way “Celestina” was the first of a three CD 33 1/3rd trilogy, “Isabel” will be the first of three CDs in a continuation of the story line and sound of the Celestina trilogy.

Currently celebrating its 30 year anniversary, 17 PYGMIES is often remembered for being one of the 1980’s era DIY bands often associated with the creation of the “College” rock sound, now know as “Indie” rock. Strangely, 17 PYGMIES are also remembered by some as “Post-Punk” while other associate the band with early “Dark-Wave,” “Gothic,” and “Ethereal Rock,” which of course is now referred to as “Dream Pop (see Captured In Ice)”. You have to admit that when combined with being one of the early “World Music” advocates (see Hatikva/Jeddah By The Sea), 17 PYGMIES has managed to cover quite a bit of territory.

However, the Earth was not enough and so 17 PYGMIES eventually took their sound to the blackness of the infinite universe and with the 2008 release of “Celestina” 17 PYGMIES shot an arrow into the sky and landed in the realm of Space/Prog Rock.

If you were part of the first 30 years, we thank you for sharing that part of the journey with us. If you were not, it’s not too late to “get on board” and enjoy the next part of the journey. Hope to see you there.

You can hear music from 17 Pygmies on the following chapters of Captain SIB’s Psychedelic Freakout.
