Yup. That’s right. We’re now 2.5 decibels from having a finished record. Spent last week, the weekend and yesterday mastering and it is really close. We need the mids to sizzle alittle more and then it’s in the can.

We played a really fun show on sunday. Mark Benson (of Lying in States) joined us as a 2nd drummer/percussionist. It was rocking and bittersweet. VJ leaves for DC this saturday and the show was his last as our drummer. Come september we’ll be joined by Robbie of Where the Moon Came From. In other membership news it is not impossible that we’ll be adding a cellist to the mix. I’ll keep you posted.

In the meantime, we’re gonna be missing VJ something fierce. I’ve lived with him for two years now, and his insight and encouragement are writ large on our songs and our hearts.

Are all the best songs about leaving? The intersection of hope and regret? Wilco’s Bob Dylan’s 49th Beard.
