Hi there folks. Happy new year! We hope your 2015 is off to a solid start. We’re still coming down from a whirlwind adventure over the last few weeks; mainly making a brand new record! We met up in Kitchener, Ontario, to lay a bunch of new material on to one inch tape at the Duke of Erb Recording studio. We recorded almost entirely live off the floor using mainly vintage mics of various tones and assortments. We think this record is going to capture the most true and warm representation of our sound to date. We’re also really stoked on the new tunes, and collaborated on the writing more than ever before. It was an engaging, full-on process. We’re proud of how the material came together and are really looking forward to sharing it with you! Click here to check out a bunch of photos of the sessions on our Facebook Page.
After a wild week or so in the studio, we caught the Via Rail train Number 1 in Toronto to provide on-board entertainment to passengers all the way to Vancouver. The ride was beautiful through the snowy and wild landscape. Frozen and bright. Sublime and humbling. If you ever have a chance to cross the country on the train, we both highly recommend it. We’ve done it a few times now, and it never gets old. We live in a fascinating land full of interesting people and places. It’s a constant source of inspiration.
We arrived back on the super mild and foggy west coast riding high on a wave of seemingly never-ending music and lack of sleep. Just the way we love it.
We’re working hard on getting a summer schedule together that will bring us face to face with as many of you folks as possible. Please stay tuned, check back soon for summer dates, and new music!
Take good care now.
