Lyric of the day: Redwinged

Lush leaves, they lie languid in the wind / Wisps of time and try again lingering on / The cellophane cage will stop making its slow spin / And even with feathers clipped by our kin / You know that only the redwinged / Can take flight like this

Lyric of the day: Main Street Lights

This city’s always weeping / It carries me like a stray dog / I wonder why I’ve been taken / To this stretch for so long / Hold my hands while I worry / I’ll hold yours while you fret / Take me down your forgotten alleys / Give me all your regret / Give me all your regret

Album release party on SAT 8/27

We will be celebrating the official 180-gram double-LP release of our first full-length album, Main Street Lights, at our beloved Sunset Tavern on Saturday 8/27, with special guests The Echolarks and Tape Stacks.

This has been an amazing journey from the beginning - starting with the first tunes that we wrote together, all of the special special people that have encouraged and supported us, our wonderful and amazing band who have been such great musical inspirations, the unforgettable almost month-long time we spent at Bear Creek Studio recording these songs to two-inch tape with the inimitable Ryan Hadlock and ever fantastic Jerry Streeter, obsessing over mixes and artwork and design and driving ourselves mad... And we couldn't be more proud of what we made.

If you're a vinyl junkie like we are, you'll want to come get these beauties in your hands!

If you're not in Seattle, fret not! We'll ship it to you, lovingly packaged in reinforced mailers. Just hit us up here on the site.

xoxo,
A+C.

feeling the love.

So so many thanks to everyone who came out to our vinyl listening party on Tuesday! We're so grateful and ecstatic for the support and excitement for our record. We look forward to seeing y'all at some shows! Much appreciation goes out to our pals at The Sunset for hosting and keeping us all hydrated. 

Speaking of shows... We have a couple of fun ones coming up in July, in addition to some release announcements and other exciting stuff.

  • JULY 9 // SATURDAY: We're very happy to be playing the wonderful Royal Room in beautiful Columbia City, with our badass buds The Kings! Doors at 9:30pm, show at 10pm, 21 and over. (There's a suggested donation of $10.) It's not often we get to play a venue with a proper grand piano, so don't mind Ayako if she's ridiculous and giddy.
     
  • JULY 23 // SATURDAY: We're back at The Sunset for a show with the lovely Annie Ford Band. Santiam from Portland will be opening up for us. 9pm, 21 and over. Advance tickets available here!

We hope to see all of your beautiful faces out!

xoxo,
A&C.

Inching closer... (and listening party!)

Well, we have our test pressings from the fantastic people at Furnace Record Pressing...! Even after listening through them, it's still surreal to think that OUR SONGS are IN THOSE GROOVES. As has been the case every step of this process, we're awestruck and excited with the wonderful work that our team has put into this record of ours.

For those of you who are local neighbors in Seattle, we're having a little VINYL LISTENING PARTY to give y'all a sneak peek of these bad boys (did we mention we're doing a double-LP release?!) at the Sunset's Betty's Room (front bar) in Ballard on TUES 6/14. The kind folks at the Sunset are letting us bring over a crate of our favorite records to spin as well, so come hang out with us!

Look at this beaut!
