Zone of Groovy
Sometimes we can have nice things. New riffs have been sprouting forth. ITLM debuted a new epic at the Boot and Saddle on 2/7 titled "Miner Pocket Draft Gear". We thought it had a bit of a Television thing going on, but someone afterwards said "Baba O'Reilly", so there's that. What of the title? It was on the side of a box car once belonging to the narrow gauge Denver, Rio Grande, and Western Railroad. Beyond that, it's meaning remains somewhat shrouded. The room was crowded, the stage lights hot, clothes got damp, and volume knobs edged to full on. Mark took photos of all the bands (us and pals Beretta 76 and Nixon's Head) and shot the below footage.
As John is holed up in Ithaca, NY in a custom snowbank, keyboard duties were expertly performed by Joe Jack Talcum (Dead Milkmen, Ornamental Wigwam, Butterfly Joe). He may even play with us again if we keep up the good behavior.
People in the world continue to say nice things about the Warm Seclusion Structure album. Broken Hearted Toy liked our "mixing modern indie rock with a nocturnal new wave ambience." We will totally take that. And WXDU Durham, man. One week were were in the #20 spot. The following week, #16. Our hearts are all a-flutter. And a tip of the hat to Philebrity for plugging our show and keying in on our lazy '90's freak vibe. Ok, back to massaging the artisan bespoke free-range riffage.
