Speak Into My Good Eye ran this review of our February show at Glasslands, which, it must be noted, was a very very fun night for us. Many thanks to The Inner Banks and Yellowbirds for helping cram a chilly night with great music.
Our buddies from Secret Sound Shop spent some time with us in a dim and echoey basement a few months back, and they wrote this good post as record of the event. We served up renditions of Sleep til Morning and Food From the Cow, all amidst some real basement flotsam.
We were in Austin and environs for the Thanksgiving holiday this year — seeing family, playing a few shows, and washing ourselves in wond’rous Texan goodness. Here are a few photos from the trip.
Steve and I trundled off the plane in Austin two days ago with a few suitcases full of clothes, pedals, cords and merch, our computers, a toddler and one guitar. Yes, only one guitar. I made the executive decision that I would rent an electric guitar down here from a local store because we had so much to bring with us, what with the kid and all.

Here’s a piece I just wrote on Doc Watson. It’s nearly a month overdue. My shot at ever working the obituary post of an editorial board is growing pretty slim. Hope you like the piece, though, ye editors and all.
My Old Kentucky Blog calls out Little Silver’s utter gall in taking on Sun Kil Moon on our covers record, and then comes around to say that, well, it’s a pretty great cover. Check out their premiere of the track here.
We’re totally excited to be playing a run of shows up the west coast these couple of weeks — six shows in California, Oregon, Washington, and all info is on our shows page here. Come see us if you’re close by. We’re presently prepping for the SF show from high above the city, in Marin, as pictured here….
