Bee vs. Moth 10-year Anniversary

2014 marks the 10th year of Bee vs. Moth! To celebrate, we are adding two new releases to our catalog. First is our new studio album, Shelter in Place. Many of our Austin musician friends joined the recording of 11 brand new songs. Second is a special collection of unreleased tracks from each of the band's 10 years. We're including rare home recordings, unreleased film score music, and some of our favorite live recordings in this limited cassette release. Both are available from our store.

Pictured: The original Bee vs. Moth lineup of Philip, Sarah, Jerome Smith, and Aaron Dembe interviewed at KVRX in 2004. Luckily someone else canceled their Local Live appearance, so our first ever public performance was recorded.

"I Listen to
Coffee All Day"

Our friend Jessica Dreesen animated this wonderful video for this work song from our Acronyms record. "I Listen to Coffee All Day" includes a guest appearance by Ralph White on banjo. It all started when Sarah casually suggested, "we should put the cat in the video."

Live Original Film Score:
The Oyster Princess

The Oyster Princess (1919) is a tale of vanity, excess, extravagant wealth, and mistaken identity. Our newest silent film score project was selected by the SXSW Film Festival. That premier was a packed-house success, and we've since reprised the film at the historic Texas Theatre in Dallas, Discovery Green in Houston, and at the 2012 NMASS Festival in Austin.

This trailer features music from the score. You can also catch a glimpse of the debut performance that was captured by an audience member. You can hear another Oyster Princess song on our Soundcloud page.
