Photo & Video
Peter Hamlin and Nina Frenkel took this song on a dreamy, animated ramble, and we’re totally dumbstruck and thrilled with what they came up with. Load the video fullscreen and give it a look… We also gave this little interview to IFC on the making of video for its premiere on their site. [and, hey, update: Nina and Peter won a 2012 International Motion Arts Award for this flick! Pretty serious stuff...]
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. Special thanks to Bruce Curtis and Kristen Warnick for keeping the camera shutters clickin’ while were there.
We totally had a ball at the “Dress Up” record release show – lots of good people and one of our favorite li’l venues in town. We had intended to post a clip of “Pictures of You”, from the new album, but that song pretty much blew up in our faces, to much bewilderment and awe among all assembled. At least that’s how we recall it. In any case, here’s a more tame capture of a brand new song of ours.
After a little bit of eavesdropping at the beginning here, this video settles into a pretty good capture of one of our newest songs, called “The Slowing and the Start”. We debuted this song on our spring dates this year, and this recording is from NYC’s Rockwood Music Hall on 4/15/11. Take a listen…

We celebrated the release of our debut record with this video from the wond’rous Jim Collier. Jim’s worked with both of us in the past (he did this for Hem and this for the Sprinkle Genies), and he drove with us from Windsor Terrace to Coney Island one hot summer day.
