About

UPDATE: We are officially sold out of hats! Please know if you buy the everything package, the hats are no longer included :(    Thank you to everyone who has gotten us this far, and we will try to make new hats as soon as possible!



We have just finished our new album “Jefe” and are ready to release!

On September 14 at our home base Lagniappe, come catch us performing the new album top to bottom at our Release party. But first, we need some help. Merchandise is a big part of how we pay for the cost of making a record, so we would like to offer brand new merchandise EARLY for those that can help us fund this new album. All rewards will be shipped or available as soon as the kickstarter finishes - a few weeks earlier than when they will be available for purchase.

Please help us release this record by donating and grabbing a copy of the new album on CD/Vinyl or your own EK shirt or hat - or any of the other bonus rewards!

Ps: Every reward option after the digit download (shirts, hats, vinyls, etc) will also include a digital download of Jefe.



The Making of:

Replay with sound

sound

The creation of this album began about one year ago in a three day studio session. There was very little prepared material or songs so we created mostly through exploration and improvisation. The experience was different than our normal process, and inspired us to mold the material into something bigger. A year later, after many hours spent shaping it, we believe "Jefe" represents a big step in how we've evolved as a band and we couldn't be more proud to release it.

Risks and challenges

As all musicians know, releasing an album is a long arduous and expensive process. Tracking, mixing, mastering, and merchandise are just a few of the costs involved in releasing an album properly. An investment worth every minute and dollar spent, but they add up quickly. Each dollar is a substantial help to our process, and is so greatly appreciated.
