Bigelow's Tree House

Since 2008, the Bay Area’s own Bigelow’s Treehouse has been setting the tension of the modern world to a bopping beat. Armed with a cocktail of guilt, delusion, and fizzy water, they shuffle their way through nervous funk, eighties-tinged alt Brit rock, and cinematic Real Book surf dub jazz trip hop. Bigelow’s Treehouse has been redefining dad rock for a generation of slackers who still look to bands for answers to questions that nobody asked.
