We’ve been keeping this under wraps, but we’re pretty excited to see that it’s now coming out into all your streaming platforms. Introducing:

Videos of Us in Handcuffs

Album art by Leslie Hetland — isn’t it spectacular?!
Title inspired by Ian’s musing that he wanted us to get arrested during a gig.
(Listen to the last track of the EP to hear his daydream while drumming.)

We’ve put together the track list and commentary on our “liner notes” page, but probably you should just listen in on your favorite streaming platform. And listen often: We get about one-tenth of a cent for each of your streams. Go crazy.

Better yet, come visit us and pick up a real CD at a future gig in the new year! We’ve got some shows coming up and we’ll even play all of these songs and many, many more. For now, we’re just really excited that we were able to press the record button, mix our own sounds, and distribute them into your car stereos, earbuds, and living rooms. Enjoy!

We don’t get around much anymore, as the song goes, and live performances and live audiences are in short supply. But one silver lining to a pandemic is that we sometimes deliver music straight into your home through wires. Jazz at the Station was good enough to host us for a socially distanced performance for their monthly session at Ogden’s Union Station.

For us, the best part of it all was that we had this moment to get dressed up and play from a stage for an hour, albeit without a physical audience. It was a nice chance to feel like ourselves. While it’s not the same as being there, it was recorded for the public record.

Someday, one day, we’ll see you in person again. We’re looking forward to that.
