Tomorrow night, we’re playing in Iowa City at The Trumpet Blossom Cafe with some lovely Iowans, Bryn Owl and Giant Question Mark. We’ll also be spending the day at Daytrotter HQ, so look out for our session soon!
Singles Club is a fantastic idea. Very excited to see what they come out with in the future. They have a pretty killer lineup so far!
Cat’s out of the bag. Singles Club will also be releasing exclusive 7”s from Woodsman, Small Sur, and Wisdom Tooth (John from Quilt) in 2014. Check out a feature on us over at Ad Hoc and please repost! Support if you like what you see!

(OK, I lied, that is not all. These are part of a funny, gorgeous photo series by Karoline Hjorth and Riitta Ikonen called Eyes As Big As Plates, and you should look at as much of it as you possibly can.)
(Also: hat tip, so to speak, to Mr. Benjamin Birdsall.)
Never seen an instrument quite as ornate and beautiful as this. Totally mesmerizing.
