First off, thanks for visiting our Kickstarter page! We appreciate your interest in our new project. 

Since the debut of our eponymous EP last June, we’ve been overwhelmed by the support and praise that we’ve received from family, friends, critics and fans. As a result, we’re extremely motivated and energized to bring new songs and musical ideas to our devoted listening public. We’ve written a slew of new material since releasing our last record and feel that it’s about that time to get our sophomore effort underway.

The second album, which will be recorded with Eric McCoy and Kenny McWilliams of Archer Avenue Studios, will contain five to seven songs that showcase us moving in a more cohesive direction than on our last release. The “kemp ridley EP” highlighted our diverse and eclectic approach to indie-rock as a newly formed band, whereas the tracks that will be recorded for the new album/EP show us taking root in an often dreamy indie-pop landscape with abundant folk and rock influence. While the project remains somewhat ambiguous, in that we don’t have a title for it or a finalized track listing, we are dedicated to releasing it to the masses by January 2012. This new CD will be the next step for us in our quest to live up to the lofty musical goals we have as a group.
