Hello Friends and Listeners!
After a busy summer, we're hunkering down this fall to continue working on writing our third full length record. So far we can tell you the album will most likely be called Abandoner and the four or five songs we have so far seem to be coming out a bit more on the head-bobbing tip than some older jams. But don't worry, we'll still throw in some curve balls for the old school fans (a new song we just began writing entitled "Santa Anas" begins in 13/4 time). You can listen to a demo of one of our new songs entitled "Outer Dark" here.
Sunday, October 9th, we are holding a screening party for our acclaimed slasher-vid "My Reminder" at the lovely Mandrake Bar in Culver City, CA. If you live in the area please stop by and bask in the gore and the delicious cocktails. And please, if you haven't had the chance to see this video, check it out here.
Meanwhile, you can catch us performing next month in Los Angeles at the Vanaprasta Residency at Satellite, in December at the Light FM residency at Silver Lake Lounge, and in January at the Ace Hotel in Palm Springs, CA with Birds and Batteries.
Some odds and ends: blogger Abe Schwartz wrote an interesting piece on the making of the "My Reminder" video, including an interview with director Adam Penn and producer Beth Ziegler. Check it out here.
Finally, Ben Heywood will be releasing a solo record on Dec 6th, 2011 entitled Skills For The Long Emergency. You can check out the first track from the record and be one of the first few people to "like" him on facebook here.
Thanks again for listening!!
All the best
Ben, Heather, Dan, and Mike
