Gardens & Villa Flutes Rock, and We Have Proof

As you may know, Gardens & Villa have a few new remixes floating around, and we celebrated with a limited edition run of laser-engraved Gardens & Villa flutes.

We sent some to stores, and sent a few more to radio stations that have been jamming out the band’s self-titled debut. It was our way of saying thanks, and the response was stupendous, with radio folks letting us know how much they enjoyed getting something a little different in the massive fall mail piles.

But nothing, nothing, nothing could’ve prepared us for this:

 

The inimitable Thor Slaughter (from KWVA, at the University of Oregon in Eugene) posted up a youtube video of himself and his flute, jamming as only he can. He was inspired by the indelible fluted funk of Gardens & Villa themselves.

Thank you Gardens & Villa, and thank you Thor. We give you five flutes, too. Out of five.

Read on for the full run of Gardens & Villa fall tour dates. And if you’re really lucky, your local record store still might have some flutes to give out with the album.
