Entire Catalog For Free…

In these days of ever changing forms of music distribution, we thought we’d experiment with a new approach to distributing our music. One of the easiest ways for people to hear music is to make it accessible online for free. While we’ll also continue to sell our CDs and mp3s through more traditional means (if you are interested in purchasing it), We’ve decided to make our catalog of songs available on our website for free download in mp3 format and flac (free lossless audio codec) format. While we have no commercial motivation for making the music that we make, we admit that it would at least be nice to be able to make back the money we spent making it. So, if you enjoy our music, we gladly accept donations so that we can afford to continue to make the music we make. In an additional twist, while this might be unnecessary, we have also decided to make our production cost and earnings for each of our albums open to the public by listing it on our website, half as an appeal for support and half to demonstrate that we are not interested in making a profit. This way a person is fully informed about whether he/she would to want to chip in or just mooch. Either is cool with us.

Finished Recording

Recording for the new album, called Diaries Of The Intelligentsia, is now finished. Things took a little longer than expected, but I think it came out ok. Thanks to James Partridge for playing drums, Dallas Flanagan for singing, and Margaret Ebert for playing cello on the record as well as my roommates for putting up with the noise. Engineer, Ryan Hadlock (Blonde Redhead, Black Heart Procession, Stephen Malkmus, The Strokes) is flying in from Seattle tomorrow to mix the record. We’re heading over to Rear Window Studio in Brookline. I should have some new tracks up next week for people to listen.
