This is a special event, and we’re happy to share it with Good Grief, and Jet W. Lee. We’re going to celebrate our first VINYL release, of our debut full-length Pray For Rain:
Everyone in attendance can get a copy of the limited pressing for just 10 bucks.
You can also pre-order at the special price here until Saturday.
The album comes on 180g audiophile-grade, mixed-color (no two alike!) vinyl, in a matte finish sleeve with cover photography by Lisa Victoria Geisler – click here for more information on the images. There’s also an insert poster, with photography by our own Bob Buckstaff and hand-written lyrics on the opposite side, check it out:
Our first full-length album is now available:
- It’s free to download .
- The CD comes in ultra-hip recycled packaging with a fold-out poster.
- Coming May 12 on mixed-color, limited edition 180 gram vinyl with a poster insert!
We’re proud of how our first full-length album turned out, and that it even turned out at all… (see the recording journal here for further explanation). Also to our surprise, it charted on the CMJ Top 200 for 6 weeks, peaking at #107 twice, made some Best-of-2011 lists including Huffington Post and was recently featured in national magazines The Deli and Alternative Press.
Here’s what some kind online reviewers have said about it:
“… with so many angles—so many stories, so many tones and sounds—ragged, raw, explosive, all these words are just a taste, a first-bite, a start to describing something so human.” – Hiawatha Review
“To say that an artist is “coming forward with a truly unique sound” is a cliché that, more often than not, doesn’t even truly apply, as there is very little ground that hasn’t been traversed before. However, that is the most accurate way to describe this album and its feel.” – Lumino Magazine
Give it a spin and let us know what you think! Thanks for listening.

We kick off October opening for AM Taxi, one of the best rock bands around. It’ll be a hell of a night, can’t wait!
We also just finished mastering our new album, Pray for Rain. We’re thrilled with how it came out, thanks to Dan Smart’s mixing and Jason Ward at Chicago Mastering. For our first full-length release we’ve got a lot of work to do before it’s actually available. So in the meantime, get the first single on next week’s Chicago Mixtape.
