First Song to our Friends and Supporters

Hello Everyone.

It's been a while since we talked, but I hope and trust that things are great in your neighborhood. Wherever that may be.

With your help, we've been hard at work putting the finishing touches on the new album and EP that each of you were in some way responsible for bringing to completion. It's called Staylow and Mighty by the way, and it's going to be released to the public on March 1st. You all will have it before that though, at least digitally. We're still awaiting confirmation on the exact date of completion of the vinyl, if you ordered a copy on that gorgeous format. We're hoping to ship the records the first week in March, but for some reason these matters enter quite murky regions in my experience. It will be close to that, no matter what, but hopefully this side!

Anyway, in the meantime I'd like to offer you guys all a new song from the album, called Virgil Shaw. As a gesture of appreciation. It's named after a close friend of mine who also happens to be one of my favorite songwriters. It only vaguely concerns him. At least the lyrics. Check him out if you don't know him.

Okay, I wish you all a very happy and successful Tuesday. Is there such a thing as a successful Tuesday, you ask?.... We'll have to ask Aimee Mann.

Take care friends.
And good night.

Jim

      I'm listening now...it sounds blooming awesome! I love the overall feel with the echoey drums and the haunting guitar noises in the background of the chorus. Can't wait for the album.
