it’s 2013. we’re in the studio. we can’t be stopped.
yes, we’ve been rather quiet lately. no, it’s not because we don’t like you or that you smell or anything like that. we’ve just been in the studio hard at work on album #2 and it’s all very exciting.
we also just booked our first show of the new year – Friday, February 15 at Union Pool in Brooklyn opening for the inimitable Ken Stringfellow (Big Star! The Posies! more!). this is also very exciting and we’re gonna play a ton of new songs and it’s going to be wondrous so please come.
We have a Soundcloud page. Go to it.
we’ve hunkered down for the winter to work on new songs and prep for album #2. this means a lot of writing, demo’ing, more writing, more demo’ing and a fair amount of goofing off in our practice space. luckily the goofing often results in fun things like spontaneous covers, which we plan to periodically record and post to our SoundCloud page to remind you that we still exist. there’s a cover of “Nine Times Blue” by Mike Nesmith up there now.
check back regularly for more.
also: Nesmith for President.
