Infinite gratitude is due to Alverno Presents and Milwaukee Film for making this possible. Please join us at this one time only event.

Audiotree Live Session

On Saturday, the fine folks at Audiotree Music invited us into their Chicago studio to do a live session with them.  They recorded audio and visuals for the session, and streamed it live on their site.  If you missed it, you can hear the audio from the session here.  The edited video from the session will be uploaded shortly.

UPDATE: You can now watch the full session, complete with edited video here.

We hope you all enjoy the session, and our sincerest gratitude goes out to everyone at Audiotree.

and a new video!, by new friend Sean Williamson

Sing (for trouble)

so, sometimes we sound like this (if adam’s around)…and sometimes we look like this (if heather is)

Atrack! the first one from our soon not un named [or maybe forever?] record!

and our files did come!

 

we played music into microphones, beautiful people recorded it, three wizards did things, and pretty soon you heard it!   [and i sure do hope you liked it]    and maybe you gave it to other people and they heard it too! and maybe even liked it more than you did!!

some really smart people are making it happen electronically as we speak. and the great PIRATE PRESS is making sure that (in a few weeks) your record players did play!

altos have been recorded!

after several years of discussion and confusion, we’ve managed (at the loving/ENDLESSLY REDEEMING hands of brian joseph and jaime hansen) to arrange four songs.
one more session in the works for pops and clicks, and it’s off to the presses.
thank you april base and everyone in it.
more as it comes.
