About

Sapling is proud and excited to announce our first full-length record, No Sequoia. As we head into the final stages of production, we are dreaming about all the fun things we can make for you, the music-supporting public. So let's get down to it.

You have the opportunity to support this record and get it for yourself in a number of ways. You can, y'know, just get a digital download if that's your thing! But we will be making some beautifully-packaged CDs that will include lyrics, amazing photos by Coleman Rogers Photography, and god knows there will probably be red and blue sequins stuck to a few of them.

Oh wait, THERE'S MORE. While you're freaking our your relatives and patting yourself on the back for maintaining a meticulously alphabetized CD collection, you can listen to a non-album B-Side we're releasing on 7" along with our single, Maria Vs. Machine Maria.

On this record you will hear: A song we've never played live before. A song we wrote in the studio. Some near explosions. A friendly kidnapping. Bugs. Vibraslaps, but fewer than you might expect. A Theremin and synth setup that required a whiteboard flowchart. A hidden Tom Waits reference. And so much more.

We're also turning one of our favorite photos from the CR shoot into a Limited Edition poster you can stick in a frame and freak out your relatives with. 

As always, we will be making our one of a kind, hand-painted shirts available with or without glitter. 

If you're interested in some combination of rewards that we didn't list, contact us and let us know. 

Thank you for your support and we can't wait to share this album with you.

Risks and challenges

We're setting a lower-than-some-albums goal with the hopes that we can reach it without too much stress. If we get a good response, we'll do more shit.

    Make Your Relatives Uncomfortable

    You get a framed set of three 5x7 photos (one frame, three photos); one of each of us in a setting that is bound to make some of your relatives uncomfortable. What we can tell you is that we each got naked in a warehouse, which is (thank god) not FULLY reflected in the photos, spaghetti was involved, and Coleman Rogers Photography learned a lot about us all that day. Let us know if you'd like them autographed.
