Shhhhhhh – Recording In Progress

Posted on

We are very excited to announce that we’ve begun recording a new album! We’ve been working with the fantastic, ears-of-gold engineer/producer/bassist Jon Evans ~ whose credentials make us blush with excitement and nervousness (look him up) ~ at his beautiful, window-lined, magic-making studio on Cape Cod.  This is the first time we’re recording at an actual studio (that is not Mali’s basement) and working with a bona fide professional to over-see the process.  It’s been an incredible experience so far.  Here are some photos:

Mali was all business
Rachel got to play the B3 and aced it on the first take
Tony's basses in the control room
Dylan was one happy camper
Mali's view, recording vocals
Despite her repetitive strain injury, Petaluma was able to lay down harp on four songs

We will be thrilled to share the fruits of our labor with you when this thing is ready. We’re estimating a late summer or fall album release and will keep you posted on our progress here.

Our live album, For The Record, has been officially released at last! We are all so immensely proud of this thing & are incredibly excited to share it with the world. We recorded it this past June at one of our favourite venues in Cambridge, MA & finished it just in the nick of time for tour, but have not released it to the general public up until now.  It is now up at our bandcamp page for streaming, digital download and/or CD.  Enjoy!

Mali, Tony, Daniel, Dylan, & Rachel ~ in various combinations ~ will be embarking on our longest tour yet — 32 days, 23 shows.  We’re calling it the FOR THE RECORD TOUR in honor of our live album, finished just in time to bring on the road with us (the live album will also be available for download & mail order via bandcamp soon.)  We plan to keep, and share, daily records of this tour — photos, audio, video, who-knows-what-else — as a way to mark, and share, our adventures.  We’ll be sharing these adventures primarily on our Facebook page & with a post-tour blog here.

Look to your right for details on individual shows, or look at all the dates here & spread the word ~

& we hope to see many of you on the road!

we are totally excited & delighted to be presenting a live concert + live album recording that we’re calling For The Record on Thursday, June 12th at Oberon in Cambridge, MA:

Oberon has become our home-away-from-home over the past few years & we couldn’t think of a better spot to record what will be a live tour album that we plan to bring on tour with us later this summer.

Be a part of recorded history!

Your cheers, jeers, shouts, hollers, & heckles may all make it onto the album!


all advance ticket holders will receive a FREE DIGITAL DOWNLOAD of the live album as soon as it’s ready (estimated delivery: mid July ’14).

doors are 7:30pm, show starts at 8pm and is 18+

(though if you’re underage & you want to come, be in touch [] & we can see what we can do).

oh yeah!

our insanely talented friend MARY BICHNER is opening the show with her incredible string ensemble, Planetary Quartet.  Mary is AMAZING, a true talent so don’t miss her!
