We played a pretty wonderful show with all of our friends at the Skihouse a few weeks back, and thankfully our pal Brad Krischel filmed a lot of it and put together this awesome video!

We're taking a little time right now so Chris can sort out his Antartica adventure, but we are also working on finishing up a lot of recordings we've done over the past year to hopefully release them as a full length LP! So, if you want to help us with that, we'd love you forever.

You can now get our new EP in physical form via a cassette from Skihouse Tapes, which is a split with our friend Rob Jacobs. Get one, they look cool! Oh yeah and it has 2 more songs that aren't available anywhere in the digital world, we recorded them in Chicago on our most recent tour. You can still get the digital version on our bandcamp.

Okay thanks, talk to you soon!

Hump day.

We're halfway done with tour! Holy shit it's flying by. Here are some of my favorite snapshots from tour so far...


1) Shaving a crucial lightning bolt into Marcus' scalp... and swimming in the Atlantic!

2) Having lively discussions in the van.

3) Getting drunk and sweaty as hell in Nashville with Diarrhea Planet.

4) Making friends in Richmond.

5) Sleeping in the clean, dark and air conditioned bliss of the Infinity Cat Records HQ in Nashville... and admiring Taylor Swift and Hanna Montana's gold records.

Thursday, April 21, 2011


Today is my birthday. I'm sitting in my room listening to this old pressing of The Birth Of Cool by Miles Davis (just realized how funny that is..) that I got for really cheap on Record Store Day, and I feel pretty nice and want to tell you about some cool stuff we are doing.

We're playing two shows on Friday. They will both be pretty cool, you should come. We will have nice prints of this poster available, drawn by our friend Natalie Miller. Here is info on the first show and here is info on the second.

We've made some new recordings. They are almost ready for you to hear them. They are trapped in this box for now but you will hear them soon. Promise.

Mary, Chris, and Zach are going to see the Arcade Fire tonight. Marcus and I are going to stay home and play Dizzy Gillespie songs with our friend Kevin and maybe have a little party. See you on Friday, keep your fingers crossed it doesn't rain.

Saddle Up

It's been almost a year since we've messed around with this thing, and a lot of stuff has happened since then. Mary and Marcus graduated from school and got crazy jobs doing awesome things, Zeke built a cabin and is going back to school, Chris and David did a lot of weird stuff.. but we'll be checking in here more often, and if you really want to follow what's going on you can look at our facebook page because we update it more. We've got a whole bunch of new songs, and we've started working on a number of recordings and videos but we haven't finished them yet. We're going to play a lot of shows in the next few months, so you will see a lot of us again soon!

Woahhh the last few days were crazy, so we didn't really get round to bloggin'.

Asheville was way beautiful and fun and we stayed in the amazing home of Kim from Pilgrim and Nathanael, where this little monster kept us up all night:

and I found a long lost relative.

Then we played the wild Temptation Club in Murfreesboro with some cool bands from Chicago/Louisville, and caught up with Megan in Nashville. After a stop at Waffle House, off to Bloomington it was, where a truckload of our friends showed up and things got crazy. We played a fun house show with Kentucky Nightmare and Simon drove his car into our van, I am still not sure if it was an accident or not.

Woke up early and hauled azz to Chicago, finally got there after a stop in scenic Gary IN and at that McDonalds in the middle of the toll road. Played in Record Breakers which was fun and ate hot dogs and my bass fell off in the last song. Then went to Sultan's Market mmmmm and played a fun loft show w/ Tin Tin Can, The Distractions and the lovely Black Fortys.

Then ended things like every tour should end, with a stop at Cozy Corner.

Don't get the Triple Decker Club Sandwich, it is too big to fit in your mouth.

Tour was rad. Being home is weird.

The End!

We're home! Last show of the tour tonight! Blog about the last few days soon!

Saturday, January 16, 2010


i had a conversation about nighty night recently with a group of people. we all came to the realization that knowing these people intimately or not, their music brings goosebumps and wet undies to all that hear. i was really surprised cause i just figured i was alone in this and probably felt so in awe of Mary that i wanted to shrink her and keep her in a music box that i would carry everywhere. so last night when they played in Bloomington the audience was equally as "moved" by their music...which is crazy cause not only were these people complete strangers, this music was new to their ears...and dey fuckin felt dat sheit.
