Tune in today for a live performance on KEXP. We’ll be playing a few songs off our new, second album plus a new, as-yet-unreleased song and speaking with Cheryl Waters during her Midday Show. 90.3 on your radio dial if you’re in Seattle or anywhere around the world at KEXP.org.
In other news, David and I (Hamilton) spent the morning printing and assembling some promo CDs for some radio and press and other old school peeps. Thank you once again to Harrison Boyce for pulling through with the design.

Hey we’re making some changes to the website. Apologies if something looks weird or doesn’t work. We’re gearing up for the release of our new album and are on our way to getting our part of the internet caught up with that. Exciting things soon.
Yesterday marked the last show of Healthy Times Fun Club.
This is a collection of photographs that I’ve taken at Healthy Times shows over the last few years. Taking photos with that horrific green background always posses a challenge and sometimes I feel like every shot looks exactly the same. But that’s just part of the charm of the place I suppose.
Despite that incessant green backdrop, Healthy Times has been a really fantastic spot for independent music in Seattle since it started way back in 2007 (originally in the bottom floor of a Wedgewood house). It’s been very important for me personally and undoubtedly many others over the years. We played our first Song Sparrow Research show with cello and glockenspiel at Healthy Times. And when Welcome to the Potato Famine was coming out, it was really the only venue where I had any interest in doing our record release show.
Well before I go on too long I just want to give a colossal thanks to Jake and Rebecca and Malia and all the other wonderful people who put so much time and effort into making the place what it was.
Now look for the back of your head in these photographs!
