"Days Gone By", Picked to be in a Movie


Our song "Days Gone By" has been picked to be in "We Made This Movie".. more from the Austinist...


We Made This Movie is something of a meta film being put out through Letterman’s own production company. It stars “five high school seniors [who] set out to make a silly comedy movie, but accidentally end up making a dramatic and moving movie about their actual lives.” It’s set to premiere in New York on September 20 and will also be available through various video-on-demand and streaming services like iTunes, Amazon, Xbox Live, and cable and satellite providers.

Austin Monthly gave us a great 4.5 star review. 

"In a town so saturated with gimmicky bands, it's refreshing to come upon Wiretree's honest, unironic power pop.  In fact, the group's music reminds me of Big Star's "Ballad of El Goodo." ..   The band's thrid LP, Make Up, contains great ditties, including the sweetly rollicking stomper "Broken Foot," the ominous-feeling "Tonight" and "Dakota" a cathartic and wonderful sample of what makes Wiretree so good.  Sometimes with all the electric bleeps and bloops in music, you just want some good, honest rock n' roll.

New reviews from All Music Guide and Aid & Abetting


We just added some new reviews from "All Music Guide" and Aid & Abetting in the review section.

with songs like "The Shore," another in the line of jaunty and jumping songs that have roots via Motown, the Smiths, the Strokes and beyond, the quartet can easily strike gold at its best.
