End of year update

Dear Internet, a lot has been happening in our little corner of the world so here's an update, which I guess will be the end of year update for us.

2013 has mostly been very busy for us recording-wise. We released a second full-length album (You can ride a beam of light like a musical strum) and we finished recording our third full-length, titled Sing My Song. We will finish mixing Sing My Song in January at Jackpot! Studios in Portland, Oregon with Larry Crane. He also engineered the recording of the album, making it the first album that we did not record ourselves (by 'we' I mean Kelley). So I guess that makes it our first official studio album? Well that's kind of exciting.

We also moved back to southern California after being back in Oregon for two years. We are very happy to be back in SoCal and have recently started playing out around here. We have two upcoming shows: Friday, December 27th at Silverlake Lounge at 10pm and Thursday, January 2nd at Que Sera in Long Beach as part of Press Play's "New Year's Hangover" night.

We are working on a new song that reminds me of some Spacemen 3 tunes. We also have a cover song project in the works.

We hope that next year we will be able to get some of our stuff on vinyl for the first time. We have "You can ride" mastered for vinyl already. We are very eager for that to happen! It will truly be a dream come true.

2014 will mark our 6th year as a band. We started recording original songs in December of 2008, so it has been pretty much exactly five years since we started. In general we try to do as much as we can with what we have. We hope to tour more, especially to the east coast and we'd love to go back to the midwest. But we have to live in the confines of reality so we'll see what actually comes about, and when. We feel very lucky to have pulled off what we have so far, and to have found the right people to work with. We are very thankful for what support we have gotten. Here's to the new year!
