On September 26th, 2012, much earlier in the day than any rock band should, we headed to the KEXP studios to do a live performance on Cheryl Water’s Midday Show. Inconspicuously roaming amongst us were a few folks with cameras. This is what they shot:
“As the Clouds Drift By”
“Ever Feel So Down”
“Free to Go Back Home”
Host: Cheryl Waters
Engineer: Kevin Suggs
Cameras: Jim Beckmann & Scott Holpainen
Editing: Luke Knecht

An instrumental version of our song “Tall Landlords” has been used as the music for a beautifully made, black and white, original video on the BMX/ Design/ Photography/ Culture website Defgrip (run by my brother Harrison Boyce, who also designed our album artwork and this very website).

My roommate (and esteemed photographer, videographer, designer and all around slick gentleman) Christopher L Martin recently picked up a fresh new camera with HD video capabilities. He asked me to play a song for him so he could try it out. This is what we came up with.
