The construction was pounding outside. Because of everybody’s schedules, we only had an hour total to set up and execute the shoot. Despite layer after of layer of tape, Noah’s accordion still kept leaking air violently. And we only did one single take, on a single Shure microphone. Here is our product:

For this edition of BBR I’m choosing a new addition to the collection…
Ms. Nancy Wilson’s – All In Love Is Fair!
Track #2 & #3: Try It, You’ll Like It/ There’ll Always Be Forever
I picked this album up in Fort Wayne, IN at The Wooden Nickel last week for under a buck, and have listened to it a few times since we’ve been back home. I hadn’t listened to much Nancy Wilson before, and as soon as I saw the cover I knew I had no reason not be buy it. Needles to say it’s definitely becoming a favorite. Hope y’all enjoy!
Tonight we’re playing in New Orleans and rocking the walls at The Maison on Frenchmen St. – Charles Bronson style – from 10 to Midnight! It’s a free show too so come on out and spend your Friday with us!

The track’s audio was engineered and produced by Craig Schumacher, a Tucson local, and tonight we’ll be holding a release party at the Hotel Congress (in Tucson) to honor this wonderful video’s release in the flesh!
Local Tucson bands Two Door Hatchback and Sweet Ghosts will kick off the show at 9pm and 10pm respectively, and then we’ll close out the night with a big one starting at 11pm. Show is free to all. Come get down and celebrate this wildness!
Our newest music video for Animal is now live and rolling! Check it out!
This is our 9th official music video, from our 9th, just-released studio album “Important Things Humans Should Know”. The introduction to the video was hand-animated by Noah on the road during the first 2 months of our Important Things Tour (April & May 2015). The video and recording also features a handmade, fully-functional shotgun guitar (which Noah built himself). It is the only one known to exist in the world and took a year to make.
The video was filmed by Noah and up-and-coming New Orleans-based photographer Joshua Bradsted (whose work has been featured in Rolling Stone, The NY Times, Paste, and many more).
Hope yall enjoy! And thanks again to Mxdwn for hosting the premiere! Much love, and please share it everywhere!
