Pretty killer shots of us at Cake Shop on our last time through NYC. Had an awesome time with Rudy Stoned Band and Lead Stones. Much thanks goes out to our friends Andy Plovnick for setting up this great show. And Micheal Kiefer for being our awesome label boss and taking these fine photos of us. Love to you guys and our tour buddies Mark Gibson/Lord Candydish and Megan Petty aka Fuzzy Logic. We miss you all. Here's to next year and our next tour. Good vibes to long and lengthy tours in 2014 and a killer new LP. Starting on that very soon out at Zero Art Studio with Tate. Stay tuned for updates.
Got us a nice little review for "Spectrums of Light" over on the Terminal Boredom site. Not our usual crowd to get a like from, but seems they dig it. Despite a few overlooked things in our opinion. We ain't gonna complain. A thumbs up is a thumbs up. Thanks ya'll, much appreciated. We do try hard and play rock n' roll. Here's what they had to say:
“Sometimes Just As You Are” is a slow burner/dick swinger that melds abrasive sonic shards onto some dank stylized noir. The quiet to loud dynamics are pushed to the limits as sparse thump and atmospheric creep gets pulverized under the abrasive chorus noise. Ttotals sounds as if they’re working out woes in an actual alleyway drenched in reverb and not just shut in a studio filled with cheap digital gear. Simple and effective. “Tricks Of The Light” rollicks in a moody batcave blues that really crawls on ya’. Imagine taking the drink away from Gallon Drunk or stripping The Flaming Stars down to their bare gristly essentials and you’d get something like this. Funny, I learned just minutes ago those two acts were related. Well, Ttotals might dangle from their hanging tree…Haunting shit that still ain’t afraid to rock. Released on Twin Lakes, which is also home to Michael Beach and Electric Jellyfish. That all makes a hell of a lot of sense too. Dead cool. (RSF)
In other news we have a show coming up this weekend at Elberta House. Gonna be a good one! We will be hosting our friends from RVA, Canary Oh Canary and finally playing with our new friends Onri. Hope to see all your faces there. This is our last one for the year, so we hope it will be a good. Cause we start work on our tentatively named "Let Everything Come Through" full length in a couple of weeks. Stay tuned for more news on that subject soon.
Tour kicks off this coming Wednesday. Gonna be a killer time. Here is the Link for the Facebook event page. Hope to see all our friends and hope to make some new ones as well. We are all about growing our community of friends. And speaking of that community. We got us a shout out by our friend Sonic Boom in the Guardian last week. Here is the LINK to the article on the new faces of Psych Rock. Thanks so much Pete for the shout out. Much Appreciated!
Apparently we are going to appear, who knows if we actually will, in an article about Psych Rock in the Guardian. Who knew we garnered this kind of attention. Stay tuned for said article. And Stay tuned for tour dates. They are just around the corner.
