Shooting Rockets Towards the Sun
Available Now on vinyl LP, CD, digital
After what has seemed like an eternity, our album is finally here. We spent a lot of extra time weaving together all of the layers of sound and melody, ensuring that everything has its own sense of space. There was a lot of creative inertia for many of these songs, which meant we wound up with an extraordinary amount of tracks. Personally we are fans of albums that reveal themselves gradually upon repeated listens; dense albums that don't give up all of their secrets at once. We were striving to create an album that was catchy and enjoyable upon first listen yet full of subtle sonic moments. As such this album sounds really good with a nice pair of headphones. We hope you enjoy it.
Apparently the album has leaked early online and now is available for streaming on Pandora and Spotify. In fact we leaked it even earlier to the Saint Louis County Library's streaming service. We live in an era of leaks so I guess we're just embracing the new reality..or something. Go have a listen.
We're excited to announce that our new album "Shooting Rockets Towards the Sun" will be available at the end of the March on Skeleton Fur Records. This has been a long project with many edits and delays, which at the time were frustrating and annoying. In the end the extra time we spent on the mixes and artwork were well worth it. We are so happy with the finished product and can't wait for you to experience it.
Artwork for the new album is looking really awesome. We had the very talented poster artist Jim Mazza design us something great.
We've been harvesting plums and working on a song concerning ghosts in monochrome. Our next show is on Friday July 31 at the Shlafly Tap Room with the amazing Pat Sajak Assassins. This might be a good time to hear some of our new songs that we often times mention and then bury into obscurity. To endure these lean times we've put the plums in jars (for ourselves) and put some songs on SoundCloud (for you).
We took some time away to write a few new songs and to finish up mixes for "Shooting Rockets Towards the Sun". Venus is bright in the western sky and we've gazed at it often. The garden was planted too. This page was ignored.
Last night's Geminid Meteor shower here in Saint Louis was not very
observable due to cloud cover. Bummer. Some other things not readily
obervable (to you anyway) may include our recent trips to Hyperspace
studio to work on final mixes for the upcoming album "Shooting Rockets
Towards the Sun" as well as the current wave of subtractive and inverse
