Both the J train and the rain were well-timed overhead, and we had a total ball. Here we are shaking our booty, and celebrating a wedding anniversary and several successive years of shows at this stupendous garden, a totally out-of-time and out-of-place spot in Bushwick. The kindest folks around in attendance. Happy end of summer!
We recorded an album’s worth of basic tracks this spring at Brooklyn’s Mission Studios in Brooklyn. It was the first time that we’ve had the chance to really settle in for several days of recording with Ray and David, and we wanna do it again, like right now. So fun (and Erika was even 8 months pregnant…). Here’s a link to a photo gallery, all courtesy of Patrick McNulty. Links to music coming before long!

CoolDad Music asked Erika what we liked in 2013, and she put together this list that spans both our taste, and even notes where it overlaps :). ‘Twas a very good year!
We had so much fun at Rock Shop the other night. Here it’s making Steve get all bendy. Thanks to all who came, and special thanks to The Go-Kartel (get a website!!) and Steve Shiffman and the Land of No for joining us. Both of ’em rocked it.
Our cover of “Salvador Sanchez” found itself among some very fine company on this mixtape from Wake the Deaf. It truly is an excellent mix. It kept Erika in the house for almost a full day, listening, when it first came out….
Worlds will collide, heavens will shine (or at least instrument cables will be shared and backstage will be crowded) this next month when Little Silver shares the stage with Hem for the first time. Philly and D.C., come see what will be a great double bill! Full details on our calendar.
Speak Into My Good Eye ran this review of our 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.
