We have begun working on our second full length album with our friend Ulrich Schnauss, and were able to complete three songs last year in London. We are using the same process for the rest of the record by creating the foundation of each song on our analog equipment in Austin, Texas and returning to Ulrich's studio this Spring to complete the album.

We have been working independently for some time, and are self releasing our current LP, Magic Lighthouse on the Infinite Sea. Prior to our recording sessions in London, we've organized a brief eastern European tour with no help from labels. In short, we are on our own and every bit helps! Through the process, we have received much encouragement, and are appealing to you to help offset the massive costs of travelling. Anything over this goal will go directly towards lodging, food, and engineering costs. Of course, you will be rewarded!

Follow our progress with the tour and recording via tumblr and twitter.

ALL IN THE GOLDEN AFTERNOON biography: Texas psychedelic project All in the Golden Afternoon has been stretching the boundaries of drone pop for over half a decade. Rachel Staggs brings her experience with Experimental Aircraft, Monster Movie, and the Black Angels to establish layers of melodic noise and heartfelt purrs while Carlos Jackson (Polyphonic Spree) creates a backwards dimension of translucent auditory upheaval. The duo fuse these individual visions to construct their signature hallucinatory sound.

The couple has toured Europe and shared the stage in the U.S. with Spectrum, Beach House, Animal Collective, and Ulrich Schnauss. Festival appearances include SXSW, Festival SOY (France), and Austin Psych Fest. Mind Expansion released their debut and a self-released LP is available this March. They have also been featured on Rocket Girl Records (UK) 3…2…1… A Rocket Girl Compilation alongside A Place to Bury Strangers, Television Personalities, and Serena Maneesh, as well as  Dead Bees'  (FR) Compilation #9 with Brian Jonestown Massacre, Spindrift, and the Lovetones.
