Photo & Video
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…

Photos taken by John Hayes at our 4/9/11 show in Philadelphia. That other strapping fellow on stage with us is our good friend Kai Schafft, of the inimitable Chicken Tractor.
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.
Last spring our friend Peter Rad took these photos in Brooklyn. A few hours later we packed ourselves into a car and literally drove through the night to make it to Louisville’s WFPK and Motherlodge Festival. Unfortunately we didn’t make the trip in that pink car. We have no idea whose car that is, but thank you.
Late one night after rehearsal we realized we didn’t have any photos of David and Ray on the site. So bleary-eyed and knock-kneed, we stuck a camera on a chair and remedied this. Ray Rizzo plays drums; he’s wearing stripey pants. David Tarica plays bass and keys; he’s not. They’re the best.
