In the cave of overdubs...

Look natural, fellas, 

like I always play you all

at once.

We are putting the truly

finishing touches on the first

volume of our two-album set


CITY, and it’s sounding soooo

good... We’ve decided to release

Pt. 1 by itself as soon as it is

ready rather than hold out for

a simultaneous release with

Pt. 2. Not quite ready to reveal a date yet, but suffice to say it will be THIS FALL, with Pt. 2 rolling in some time next year. Check back for info on a local CD release show and sneak previews in the coming months.

REPETITIONS OF THE OLD CITY is not a double album but two separate, interrelated listening experiences representing a discrete period of time in the band’s history which has now come to a close. In October of 2014, we went into the studio with The Norman Conquest to record the basic tracks for over an hour and a half of music. These are the songs that have formed the backbone of our live sets over the past six years or so. Since then, we’ve been refining the mixes, doing overdubs, and bringing in some wonderful guest musicians.

REPETITIONS will be our first release of original material in nearly three years.  We are making a deliberate effort this time around to capture the intensity and immediacy of the live Jack O’ The Clock. This doesn’t mean there is absolutely no production, but there is a crisp, concise core and a unity to the sound that is true to all five of us and sounds more like the band than ever before.  It took a few years and a lot of experimentation to find this sound, but we’ve learned how to put all the funny pieces together, how to make this unruly beast sing. This is our main sequence, our bright, rich, fully-cooked state.  I can’t wait for you to hear this stuff.
