For those of you who came out to see us during our July tour across the country, who shared a story, a smile or a drink....We appreciate you. Some of you made us cupcakes in our likeness', and brought us craftsman Guitars(Knaggs), and duct tape wallets. Many of you became our friends and we felt like we'd always known you, some of you taught us how to Kayak, catch blue crab and then...eat them. Many of you accepted us into your homes and treated us like family. There were those who took pictures of us and shared them, who came early and stayed late so they could meet us and get signed copies of our new record, "Ownerless," and bought our shirts and supported us. Thank you. We were on fire at these shows, burning with an energy that i've personally never known and I feel a fundamental change in my soul as a result. Thank you to all who've come out to share this with me and the gang...it means the world. As i feel it is important to remind each other, I will leave you with the invaluable message of our dear friend, Cory Murchy................
With much love and respect,
Hello hello.. Quick update, y'alls.
So, things are starting to get busy as we gear up for the June 26th release of our new album Ownerless. We've added a bunch of dates to the "shows" page and we will be adding many more soon, so please check back. Although I highly recommend listening to the whole group of tunes as an album... there are several songs already available to sample:

Hi there. If you are just now checkin us out for the first time, we've just released a digital-only (for now) EP called Who the Hell IS Everest? It's is a funky stew that basically answers a question... with a question. Maybe it'll make more sense further down the road. There's one song that your cousin Susie might know from our 2nd record On Approach. There's a live tap into a deep root from our first record Ghost Notes. There's a look under the bed that reveals a hidden treasure. And then there's a little Love, from the not-so-distant future.
Many thanks to Sir Lawrence Azerrad for introducing us to the wonderful Nam-Chi Van, who created the cover during a performance by a band she'd never heard before. And.. who let us use it for the sake of kindness. Extra special thanks to artist Shayna Peveler and the gangsters at ATO Records for helping us to pull off the rest! New album is finished and is on the way. We're planning on a late June release, but here's a little something to digest in the meantime.
1. Let Go (From the album On Approach)
Just wanted to post a quick update as we rush headlong into 2012... Our new record is mostly done and should be out late Spring. We recorded it over the last 6 months with our friend Richard Swift at National Freedom in Cottage Grove, OR; one song at Albini's Electrical Audio in Chicago, IL; some overdubs at New Monkey Studio in Van Nuys, CA; and finished up with a session that really clicked with Rob Schnapf at Mant Sounds in Glassell Park, CA. I think we all feel like we've done our best work yet and look forward to sharing it with you. Rob will start mixing it in about a week. Looks like we'll be doing some more residencies like we did in Chicago last summer, possibly in NorCal and in the Pacific Northwest, followed by a summer full of touring. It's kind of a time of transition for us... in a good way ... ch-ch-ch-ch-changes will abound in the next few months and we'll be posting news here as we get back into the swing of touring with a new LP on the shelves. Ok. Thanks for stopping by. Have a Corona. Merry New Year...

We're honored to play a rock show this coming Tuesday at the Echo in LA for Kevin Bronson's Buzzbands.LA 3rd anniversary. We're excited to be playing with Hands and Death To Anders. Kevin has been with us since Day 1, and probably before that ... his support and knowledge of local bands in the deep and murky Los Angeles pond might best be defined as musical speleology (yes, that's a real word!). The man knows his shit, and he's not afraid to say when something IS shit. There's more info here if you're a MyFaceSpace person: http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=246716692038701
Tickets are $8 in advance, and just $5 if you RSVP to . We'll bust out some new songs. Also, we're going back into the studio this week with one of our favorite dudes, Rob Schnapf. More updates on that real soon-like..
Two shows this week ...
We're returning to Big Sur on Friday, 10/21/2011, for a festival curated by Ben Lovett from Mumford & Sons: Communion in the Redwoods at Fernwood Tavern with John Vanderslice and Secret Sisters. For advance tickets: http://www.eventbrite.com/event/2281969432
Then off to see our friends in San Diego to headline Indie 94.9's Rocktoberfest outdoor stage at West Coast Tavern on Saturday evening, 10/22/2011.

Howdy pinhole canopy skippers, tiller toward the ink black sea booty stealers, and deep lost soul boatmissers ... we have a show in LA this week that we're pretty excited about. Jack O'Neill is the man with the pirate patch winking at you there.... He is also the fella credited with making the first wetsuit. All so he could body surf his favorite break near Santa Cruz in the 1950's, where the cold nutrient-rich waters make the "red triangle" such an, um, innaresting place to paddle out. Having grown up in the tumblers, we're pretty honored to be asked to headline this year's very special O'Neill fashion/rock show at the Avalon Theatre this coming Saturday. There will be a runway fashion show SoCal-style, as well as a design contest featuring the artful creations of 5 high school students. We're really happy to be involved for so many reasons, but I've got some personal ones to grin about:
The La Brea Tar Pits is the site of the ninth annual TarFest, a free indie art and music celebration, this Sunday, September 25.
TarFest is all about emerging talent, with live music, painting, art installations and environmental sculpture.
We perform at 4pm. Make sure you come say hello at our merch booth after the show.
Also catch us today, September 23, on the air and online. We'll be performing 3 songs on the air at LA's new KCSN 88.5 at 3pm pst. Then later in the evening, check out our take-over on indie 103.1 from 7-8 pst.
Looking forward to sharing some sticky fun with you this weekend!
