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.
We were fortunate to be included in this mega project featuring 69 (seriously) minneapolis bands covering the entirety of Magnetic Fields’ 69 Love Songs.
Check out our version of ‘You’re My Only Home’

We recently finished a weekend of recording with the illustrious Brian Moen of Peter Wolf Crier/Laarks/Land of Talk/Shouting Matches, et al. We feel very fortunate to work with someone so talented. The tones fit into place, we drank tea, we played keyboards. We are giddy to share this new record with you and it should be ready for the world in the Spring of 2013. Stay tuned for updates. \\
