Number 3 on the CJSR Charts!!!

We were very happy and excited to find that CJSR, the University of Alberta's campus radio station has been giving our new album lots of airplay this past week - so much so that we reached number 3 on their chart this week!

Thank you CJSR and all the hosts who chose to play us!

Gig on May 23, 2010 at Brixx

We are playing a show with Stone Iris on May 23, 2010 at Brixx Bar (10030 102 street, www.starliteroom.ca). Tickets are $10 and doors open at 7PM since it is an early show. 18+

Our second album is almost ready!

In February we recorded our second album with Jeff Olson at Phoneticsound. It is now in the final mixing stages. We're very excited about this album, as it is a step above the first album. We have done lots with the arrangements and production. If the first album was black and white, this album is full colour. And you will be able to hear it soon! Stay tuned for updates.
