I’ve been lugging the “studio” over to Helga’s apartment, and we’ve been working on new recordings.
They’re coming out pretty damn good! We’ll see how things develop, but maybe a new EP in the spring…

We also played five times. Our first day was a little shaky, but after that we kicked into gear and had a lot of fun. Thanks to everybody who came out to our shows!
With so much going on it’s easy to get lost in all the noise. But one of our performances got a glowing review:
A few seconds into their first song, I had witnessed the coolest opening of a show at the Airwaves 2012. The guy in the middle, singer/guitarist/things-master/ringleader, runs across the stage, jumps over the barricade and breaks into singing and dancing. The sincere kind might I add. No shenanigans.
