Much gratitude to all who graced

our audience and helped us bring

together our little Northwestern

tour in June! We got a killer live recording of our set at SeaProg in Seattle and are currently mixing it. We’ve waited a long time to get a studio-quality recording of the band playing live, and now that we have one, I want everyone to hear it. Expect a LIVE ALBUM in the not-too-distant future...

In the mean time, we are scheduling the last handful of overdubbing sessions for Repetitions II, and working towards a sextet show in August with the amazing FREE SALAMANDER EXHIBIT and MOETAR, two bands we’ve been longing to share the stage with for some time. This is going to be the show to come to, and also our last for a little while, so if you’re in the Bay Area, don’t miss it!

The French music site CLAIR & OBSCUR just released a VIDEO INTERVIEW with Damon, Jason, and Jordan, as well as a lovely REVIEW of our new album, REPETITIONS OF THE OLD CITY - I. Much gratitude to Pascal Bouquillard for his tireless support!

There is also a new, extensive interview with Damon and Jason in EXPOSE, courtesy of Jon Davis. Other recent reviews of REPETITIONS I and interviews you can access from our PRESS page.

A video for our song VIDEOS OF THE DEAD is currently underway, helmed by Jordan. More on this soon...

REPETITIONS OF THE OLD CITY - II is well into the overdubbing and mixing stage, but the process is slow and painstaking (read: it’s not close to ready yet). Although most of the music is drawn from the same sessions as REPETITIONS I, recorded by the original quintet (Damon Waitkus, Emily Packard, Jason Hoopes, Kate McLoughlin, and Jordan Glenn), our newest members, saxophonist Ivor Holloway and singer Thea Kelley, are also making significant contributions to the album, along with a handful of guests. It’s a big, beautiful production--hopefully we’ll have something for you by the end of the year.

RELATED PROJECTS not to be missed:

Edgetone Records has just released MINDLESS THING, a new album documenting the collaboration between Jordan Glenn (composer, percussion) and poet/sage Jim Ryan (spoken word, flute), backed by a one-of-a-kind ensemble also featuring Karl Evangelista (guitar), Damon Waitkus (hammer dulcimer), Robert Lopez (vibes/percussion), and Michael Coleman (piano).

Jason Hoopes’ dark pop trio PERFECT LOSS, featuring Jason (vocals, bass), Noah Phillips (guitar), and Karl Jensen (drums) just released a powerful third EP, FUNERAL MUSIC.
