NW shows in early 2017

2017 finds us working, experimenting, writing, throwing out, and ultimately nearing completion on a brand new batch of new songs. We are going to record some demos in early February.  If all goes well, most of these songs will likely emerge soon in the form of a big new record.  We’re excited. We’re also going to be working on another isolated recording project… no details yet, we’ll drop a line when this comes together.

In the meantime, we are playing all over the Northwest (Seattle, Tacoma, Portland, and Bellingham) in the early months of 2017. We rarely play in Bellingham, and especially rarely in Tacoma, so come on out!

First up – Sunset Tavern, Seattle, Saturday, February 11th, 9pm. This promises to be an amazing night!  We are excited to play with two great bands, our good friends in Dreamsalon and brand new punk outfit Pink Parts.  RSVB at the FB event page here.

NEXT – The Valley (Tacoma), Friday, March 10th – We are playing with Radio On.  First time coming to The Valley, click the club or here for details. Facebook invite page:

OK, it’s 2016.  2015 was a blast, and looking forward to much more in the coming year.. New album, East Coast tour, West Coast tour, shows with good friends around the country and at home, a couple new videos made by talented friends here in Seattle (thanks Mike & Carlos!), some rad festival gigs (Sasquatch, Capitol Hill Block Party, Macefield Festival..), live radio performance on KEXP, some nice spins on the radio including “The Best Show” on WFMU with Tom Scharpling, the list goes on!  Many thanks to all who’ve attended our shows, purchased the record,  and everyone who’s contacted us from around the world.  We appreciate it!

The new album 7 (0r 8) is still in the shops, or purchasable here.

7 (or 8) has been mentioned on Year End Lists!
NadaMucho  “…they’ve burnt themselves a clearing that’s surrounded by blown out fuzz, soaring psychedelia, crisp atmospherics, and motorik rhythms. Their 2015 release 7 (or 8) indicates they’re still at the top of their game.”   More here.
Ghetto Blaster Magazine‘s Andrew R. Fetter says “Sweet son of a bitch! This is probably their heaviest album and will kick you in the ass every time you listen.”
