Its been a long time comin', but heres a few new songs for you guys. This stuff sounds a bit different than the old Orchidales material, mostly due to me listening to a lot of Chameleons, Ride, Unwound... shit like that. Either way, the album should be complete by the end of the year, and I hope y'all enjoy these tunes until then!

All songs were recorded using a Fostex MR-8 and mastered using Sony Acid 7. The only thing I used the program for was adjusting the levels of each instrument... no pitch correction, quantization, or any of that bullshit. Enjoy.

"...three dudes from Belmont who finished high school a few years back and, well, didn't leave. Their surfy, trash-fi translation of Brian Jonestown Massacre well reflects the kind of nihilistic, hard-drinking slumming that takes place among the young and disillusioned - as do their rowdy, equipment failure-plagued live shows." - Corbie Hill, Creative Loafing ... more
