The origins of this record coincide with pivotal experiences for our band; Lost loved ones, the birth of a new baby, and the solidification of our creative partnership together.
Because these songs symbolize so much for us, we enlisted the ear of Jay Pellicci (The Dodos, Death Cab For Cutie, Sleater Kinney, Deerhoof) to track, mix and produce our record at Tiny Telephone Recording Studio in San Francisco. Ed Brooks (Death Cab For Cutie, Cursive, Fleet Foxes, Minus the Bear) was then brought in for mastering.
The combined wisdom of these brilliant minds - as well as Tiny Telephone's analog gear and philosophy, which has consistently provided a gorgeous, rich sound to some of the best records of our time - shines through in the album's ten tracks, which we can't wait to share.
So far, we've paid for this project completely out of pocket. We're turning to our community to help us fund the pressing of our album to 180 gram vinyl. We'd love your help getting these songs onto their intended format.

Risks and challenges
We have been faced with a number of unique challenges throughout the writing and recording process of this album. Post-production is no exception. We still need to have this pressed, shipped, hand delivered, promoted, and all the fun stuff that goes along with releasing an album. We've had to pay studio costs, engineers, vinyl pressing, artists, directors, photographers and much more. This has been such a huge labor of love for us and we believe so strongly in what we have here. We're determined no matter what to get it to your ears!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
