Song : Finn Riggins : Benchwarmers

Boise, Idaho’s own Finn Riggins is joining in all the Record Store Day fun on April 21st by releasing a colored 10” of their new EP Benchwarmers via Tender Loving Empire. But before that, the dance-friendly, prismatic-pop trio is headed out on a tour that includes SXSW in March to rock a Boise showcase with hometown heroes Built To Spill, as well as fellow rockers Youth Lagoon, the Brett Netson Band, Le Fleur and Hillfolk Noir. And then it’s back to Boise for these non-stop road warriors, where they’ll participate in the city’s inaugural Treefort Music Festival which is taking place March 22-25th. Finn Riggins’ Eric Gilbert himself is the Festival Director and it’s the collective artist’s hope that the festival will help to highlight Boise as a destination for music and the arts. Tour dates and the mp3 for the delectably quirky single Benchwarmers below.

    […] RB: So when is the next record coming out? EG: Like I mentioned before, we have an EP coming out on April 21 for Record Store Day – there’s an incredible record store in Boise called The Record Exchange that has gotten us fully seduced into the yearly celebration of independent record stores. Last year, we released a split 7″ with fellow Boise band Hillfolk Noir for Record Store Day. This year we put together a full 10″ EP for it called Benchwarmers. […]
