Garbage Tones Video Stills

Garbage Tones in the second to last track on the new record and Jason Schumacher is making a video to accompany it.  A sun-soaked feast for the eyes. ‘We Are Ready’

Stone Arch Festival, New Organs, New LP

Work on the new LP (as yet untitled) is in the final stages of completion.  Brian mixes in California while we are finally coming out of our shells in Minnesota.  We are really excited to share this one with you.  Jason Schumacher is putting together an amazing video and the talented Alison Scarpulla lent a superb & beautiful photo for the album art (seriously…check out her photos here)

Dan bought a CP30, I rustled up a Yamaha CSY2.  The sound of a synth running through a leslie inspires endless spine tingles.

We’ll be out and about during the beautiful season; firstly at the Stone Arch Festival in Minneapolis.  Come out in your shorts and say hello.
