We recorded these songs in the basement that we call home, here in San Francisco, California, where we are lucky to have a life here filled with beautiful people, many dogs, many books, and so much joy.
The lyrics were written together, or at least work-shopped together. The guitar was mostly Jared, the bass was mostly LN, the synth was mostly LN, the drums were mostly Jared. Jared did an initial editing of the tracks, which were then mixed and mastered by Grace Coleman. A great deal of debt is owed to Devon Angus who let us use his recording mic, and Peter O'Meara, for letting us use his interface, mics, and cables.
We played 4 shows as a 2 piece in 2018, and early 2019 started playing shows with David Castillo on drums. If you were a person who came to our shows, and encouraged us to keep playing/finish recording, THANK YOU! This is for you. Special shout-outs to Peter Hurley, David Castillo (again), Dan Apuzzo, and Peter O'Meara(again) who helped us book shows early on. The photo used on the cover, as well as the header and layout photos were taken and developed by Chris Paulo Rodriguez.

We are going to make tapes, but we were eager to put up the digital files! If you buy the digital files now and decide you want something tangible later on, shoot me an email so I can take the $4 off the price.

if you want to play a show together, or have questions about something. Thank you for listening!
