Thanks to everyone who came out last night. It was great to get back to playing. We played some new songs and made some new friends.

Check out the little player on the right hand sidebar to listen to our new EP Isolette, or better yet, go here to download it for free. While you’re there you can also purchase our last full length In Simple Intervals for a price of your choosing (minimum one dollar for processing). Hope you enjoy.

This Friday!

January 26th, 2010 by Mike

We are so excited to be returning to our favorite venue Johnny Brenda’s after an 8-month absence from playing live. Get tickets here for an amazing show this Friday January 29th that will benefit a great cause. We will be playing with East Hundred and The Swimmers and all proceeds will go the JMML Foundation, which funds research for a rare form of juvenile leukemia. Show starts at 9 and we go on at 10:30. We’ll be playing our new EP!

In the meantime, enjoy this little video Ed put together of our recent visit to the WXPN studios, set to our new song “The Last Thing I Remember” from our new EP, which is available for free right now!

All of a sudden, we find ourselves a busy band. The Isolette Ep is finally done. We are mastering it this weekend and it will be available for free for you next week, right here. This Sunday, we will be in the studio live at YRock on WXPN  to play some songs from Isolette and In Simple Intervals and to talk about the records as well as our upcoming benefit show at Johnny Brenda’s with The Swimmers and East Hundred (January 29, more info to come).

Tune in to our performance/interview this Sunday at 8 pm on the internets right here.

Recording the final backing tracks for the ep. Note Jeff’s ingenious homemade blanket booth.

Finishing Touches

January 12th, 2010 by admin

The mixes are finally done. Jeff White  has done an amazing job with this stuff. Tonight we wrap up the fifth and final song, a stripped down number that is just acoustic guitar and vocals. I had recorded this song previously, but after hearing the acoustics in Jeff’s Port Richmond living room, we decided to record it again there. Sounds quite nice. We will then master these songs this week and post them to our site for your listening enjoyment next week.

Mixing, etc.

January 7th, 2010 by Mike

Hello there. As you can see we are attempting to redo our little website here using Wordpress. Please excuse us while we are undergoing renovations.

I’ve been mixing the new EP with Jeff White and we will be wrapping it up tonight. We’ll be making the 5 song set available in digital format only, for free, for a limited time. After that we may combine it with some other stuff to make a brand new, real life album. But who knows.

It is without question the best stuff we’ve done. I know, everyone says that. But it’s true.
