Berea Fest was the best weekend of my life :’)
Anonymous asked: Fuck Sean yo
We played hornless tonight. Thanks for everyone who came out and enjoyed anyways.
We are not playing again for a while. We have never been a band with a plan, but lately we have just been flying by the seat of our pants and we need to slow down and figure out what we want to do next.
On a related note, Sean has decided to leave the band. We wish him the best. We are going to audition new horns that are interested in playing with us, message us if interested.
Thank you all so much for bearing with us. We will let you know when we start up again.
it is 16 thousand years into the future. advanced sentient life forms land on a seemingly deserted planet. everywhere is dusty ruins as the life forms search for any record of what the former inhabitants may have looked like. they stumble across an old computer device and after tinkering with it, they get it running. they search it’s database and pull up a file titled “me”. they leave the planet, fearing this terrifying creature may still roam it.

During those band practice warm-ups, once all done with scales, exercises, tuning and pedal adjusting, we’d often open up our time together with a groove or riff based improvisation. Most of it was terrible, but every once in awhile a song would come out of it, which is how we happened upon what would become The Moon.
The idea was simple enough, two sections pieced together, a build up and a build down. It wound up being an exercise in restraint when it came to finalizing the arrangement, as there was a massive section that bled into it (Contradictory Anatomy), and a following track that opened up in its back half (When Used is Boastful). The trick was hinting at the overall feeling to come without losing the energy of the record’s first section, The Sun.
What I always loved about the piece was the different forms it would take depending on what setting the song would be played in. The studio found it at its most composed and controlled as it was harnessed into serving as a segue into the calm that is the middle of our record. However, the use of our friend Matt Hunsaker’s vibraphone elevated the melody and the implementation of field recordings created an ambient mood we weren’t able to achieve anywhere else. Other settings, like the aforementioned band practices, found the composition turning into a full blown, bombastic build, with too much finger tapping and delay. We laid tape on one such practice, and you can listen to the nine and a half minute version of it HERE.
so last night the venue owner didn’t make anyone pay to get into the show, so we made no money, and that really grinds my gears. New Haven CT tonight at the People’s Art Collective with 2 touring acts and 2 locals, help us make tonight better than last night!
