Night Music

So the tour went pretty smoothly. the shows were mixed (although the show we headlined at Cafe Du Nord went really well in all areas) as far as attendance goes, but I guess we set out hopes a little higher then we should have (seeing as our previous 2 shows in Seattle went really really well).

Now we're back to working on new songs and planning some new shows (but new material is the focus right now). In the meantime, here is a new mix of tunes I compiled. In my own view, these were all songs that in my mind I filed under good summer night music. Let me know what you listeners think of it.


1. Terra- Julian Lynch
2. Goodnight Tonight - Paul McCartney
3. Isfahan - Duke Ellington
4. On Point remix - Trademark Da Skydiver & Young Roddy
5. My My, Hey Hey (Out Of The Blue) - Neil Young
6. Chip A Tooth (Spoil A Smile) - Spectrals
7. Rigor Mortis - The Meters
8. Batidinha - Antônio Carlos Jobim
9. Time Stands Still (feat. Dwele) - DJ Quik
10. Just Like A Baby - Sly & The Family Stone
11. Too High To Move - Quiet Village
12. Sail On Sailor - Kristin Oppenheim

This weekend was fairly productive. we had a somewhat lackluster practice as far as our skill levels go. we just weren't on the top of our game for whatever reason, but it ended fairly well. After that though we shot a music video.

Our friend Jazmin has been in town, having just moved back from Berlin, and probably back there after a short stay in New York. She's just home visiting family and friends for a couple weeks. She really quickly (almost as if possessed) came up with an idea for a music video that she wanted to shoot for us. Within about 72 hours of her initial idea (maybe even 48) we took to the streets and drove around from about 5pm onward shooting in Napa and Yountville until there wasn't anymore light. It was raining, it was muddy, it was cold, but is was also pretty damn fun. I won't ruin the surprise of what this video will look like (I'm not even completely sure myself), but I will give a few quick hints: mariachis, mustard fields, dancing.

This song below suites the mood that this weather induces, and was one that we listened to when driving to locations

Album Has Shipped

Yes, that is right, the album has shipped. What does that mean to you, or us? That means we will soon have our grubby hands on the distilled product of the last 2 (or so) years of work writing, practicing, recording, mixing, mastering, and designing a whole product both musical (capital "M") and art. Hope some of you can get a little excited about that haha. I myself am quite excited to get this music out there and start to get some honest to goodness feedback. Art is obviously supposed to be for the person who makes it, on a certain level; but what would be the point in putting it out there if we didn't want to see what others thought of it, or to make people happy in some sort of way. Pretty simple stuff really.

Another little non-us treat. I've really been digging this song over the last couple weeks. it took me a few listens to get used to the voice. you don't hear a lot of voices like this in good off kilter indie rock these days; clean, soulful, aggressive, and versatile. I was surprised when talking at a bar tonight with a friend that the singer is a woman. Now it makes sense and I can hear it, but damn if I wasn't fooled. I actually played this in my house while my parents were home, and (cool kids beware) my mom and I started doing a little solo dancing to it. Those in the world of indie-rock marketing take heed, apparently old people dig this. So, without further adieu....

April 13th Album Release (Show)

I don't really have much to say, but I have made statements claiming I would make an attempt to post more often on the blog. Nothing too exciting. The album is being manufactured and we've been working on a lot of new material along with preparing material for our album release show at Red Devil Lounge on April 3rd in San Francisco (also have upcoming shows in Napa and Cotati). It was an ordeal to say the least to get a solidified lineup for the show, but I'm happy now that it's over in done with because we have two great acts on the bill, John Thill and Alright. they make me happy and that is all there is to that. All that being said though, I just wanted to do a show off this video. I've been jamming out to this song for the last year or two (whenever it came out) and while the album is just okay, this song is really great in my opinion. Grade A crooning going on. Enjoy (you might want to have a fruity cocktail in hand while listening to this ditty).
