Almost immediately upon finishing and releasing our last album, I wrote two songs, Tiger and Snake In The Tree, that signified the end of an era for All Young Girls Are Machine Guns. Our guitar player, Will, moved from Omaha  to Chicago to pursue comedy. A year and a half later, our bass player, Travis, moved on to his own country project. Both were great losses to us, but endorsed and encouraged. We have since replaced our boys with new players and moved to a new, more soulful sound. That meant we were left with these two songs that are completely left field from what we play now. They are hard-hitting jazz numbers that in recording have taken on a gruff, gritty life of their own. The songs speak about the animal urges that rise up in us all, and about our abilities to exercise an obscene amount of self-control in spite of the urge to give in. These songs are dark and dangerous and belong archived alongside one another.

This is where you come in. With your help, we would love to archive these two songs on 7" 45 rpm vinyl--to drop a needle on them on a hot, sticky summer nights, where we find ourselves wrestling with those old, familiar spirits--to give our old era the deserving send-off we cannot do alone. 

Risks and challenges

We have put our blood, sweat, and tears into recording these two songs. They sound better than anything we have recorded to date. They were recorded with the band that created them. They are a set. Tiger and Snake In The Tree are the end of the AYGAMG jazz era. To send them off in any other way would be to short them the love and respect they're due.
