We are very happy to announce that our new record, “Heavy South,” will be released this January. We’ve been working on this one for quite a while and couldn’t be more excited to finally share it with you. “Heavy South” fixates on circular patterns – work weeks, weather patterns, daily exchanges. The album will be available on vinyl, CD, and the usual digital platforms. You can hear a brand new track called “Horse’s Mouth” and pre-order “Heavy South” via our bandcamp:


More cool stuff soon!

We are genuinely thrilled to share this new track with you. “Born to Work” is a gently psychedelic folk rock song. This is the first taste of a forthcoming full-length that we are very nearly finished. We don’t have any more details for you about the record yet, but we were too excited to not share some of what we have in the works. Download for free from Bandcamp or stream in the usual places:
