twilight (song sketch)

my friend taylor played this song for me years ago, and it's been one of my favorite Band songs ever since. kinda wish they recorded a full band version, for curiosity's sake... but honestly it doesn't matter, this one is perfection.

we are so pleased to announce that we will be playing a handful of shows with the incredible GRIZZLY BEAR and super homies GIRLS in the next few months. these are two of our favorite bands, and we are feeling seriously honored right about now. there are some tickets available as of today, but chances are all of these shows will sell out soon, so buy tickets now plz.

AND AS IF THAT WASN'T ENOUGH, we're doing a little acoustic show (christopher, solo) at CMJ in a couple weeks (10/22). it will be mostly new songs, maybe some covers, maybe some requests? it's gonna be real cool, like freezing, below 0, cool. so you should be there. and last but not least, we are closing out this wonderful year with a BIG BANG NEW YEARS PARTY at bottom of the hill with our radical buddies miniature tigers! this is going to be a pretty special show-party, and the last time to see us this year (/DECADE(!!!!)). let's make special memories together.

in other news, we're 99.9% finished with our new album, and it's really hard waiting to let you guys and gals hear it. honestly, sometimes i just want to leak it on the internet right now!!!! but i can't. sorry. seriously though, a lot of exciting stuff is happening over here, and i promise you'll get to hear some tunes soon. it'll all be worth the wait, i swear! more news on that soon...
