We just got home from a wonderful tour of the West and wanted to thank all the amazing bands, fans, friends and strangers that came out to see us, fed us, sheltered us or just gave us a smile along the way! We’ll be back soon.
We’ve been waiting what’s felt like a year to share some new tunes with you but seeing “A Bullet For You” up on SPIN today made it worth the wait…
We’re incredible excited to announce the release of A Bullet For You, a 7” featuring three new songs - out September 18th, 2012 on Crossbill Records.
The A side is, ”A Bullet For You”, a slow burning reverb-heavy missive that’s a sneak preview to our next album. “Bullet” is backed by a pair of b-sides, “Every Time You Make Me” and “Please Don’t Go”. The first is a brand new song we wrote and recorded in June and the latter is a remake of another track from our upcoming album that we’ve gone ahead and given the subtitle of [Jim Dickenson’s Fever Dream].
This new 7” will hopefully settle the appetite four next album, The Secret Will Keep You, that we promise will be rotating on your turntables in early 2013. Until then, hopefully we’ll see you on tour!

After being asked to perform for a Harry Nilsson tribute night, we and our long standing art director/collaborator Allison Bohl, decided to record our take on a fewHarry Nilsson’s classics: ”One,” “He Needs Me,” “He’s Large” and “Don’t Forget Me.” The resulting EP, On Nilsson, came out last month on Crossbill Records… pick it up on iTunes or directly from us on with a limited edition handscreen print of the album art here.
