Yellowbirds, Robert Walter’s 20th Congress, Tour Dates & More







Happy Summer Y'all!

The Royal Potato Family is closing in on 5 years of releasing records! It's kinda hard to believe. We're still standing and going full throttle into the great unknown. Thanks to everyone for buying the music. Without you, there's no RPF.  

...Much Love...

THE ROYAL POTATO FAMILY


YELLOWBIRDS
 Songs from the
Vanished Frontier

It's an honor to bring you the second Yellowbirds' release Songs From The Vanished Frontier. Sam Cohen and co. have crafted an exquisite collection of songs. You can preview the tracks by checking out the videos for "The Ceiling" and "Young Men of Promise." The album is out now on digital, CD and LP (on white vinyl).

Get it here: direct from The Royal Potato Family | Your local indie record shop | iTunes | Amazon


ROBERT WALTER's
20th CONGRESS
 Get Thy Bearings

It's hard to believe it's been 10 years since Robert Walter has dropped a 20th Congress album. The wait is over on June 25 when Get Thy Bearings is unveiled. You can preview the first single "Hunk" right here. The record is the perfect summertime jam -- think Big John Patton, Jimmy McGriff and Jack McDuff, but for the 21st century.
