hey there everybody.
apologies for the december cancellations. it takes a lot to cancel a show, and i beg your forgiveness.
january is here and change is in the air.
working hard on a new record. i repeat: hard. so far it feels like an really exciting step forward. more to come later.
checking in to let you know about a remix i did recently for our friends from champaign, IL, Elsinore. it's on the EP that is preceding their upcoming full length. i wanted to keep my distance from the chops on the original version, so i pretty much snagged the vocals and horns, set up camp at my studio and recorded a bunch of shit. they send the tracklist to get printed well before i was finished, so they are stuck with what i turned in (suckers). they seem happy with it, but never trust a musician. :) anyway, they want to get the word out, since they are offering this track up for free and spreading it around. apparently it's already getting some love on the radio.
check it out here:
Elsinore - Yes Yes Yes (Eric Enger Remix)
see ya soon.

Big bad crummy news. Some super-sickness is forcing us to drop off of our Chicago, Champaign, and St. Louis shows this weekend. The good news is that all three shows are still going to be super-sweet, and you should definitely still go! So sorry, wish us well, and we'll catch you next time. ♡GAH

Hey so in case you haven't seen it around town yet, there's a new(ish) "intercollegiate" rag in St. Louis called Eleven Magazine. You should try to find a copy (found mine at the Maplewood Jimmy John's - I think they have some in the music shop there on Manchester, too) and give it a read - it's very good stuff. They're also online in blog-form at elevenmusicmag.com
This month's issue is especially near and dear to us, because A. It features bits on two of our very good friends in the "H" section of our iTunes: Headlights and The Hibernauts, and B. Inside the front cover you'll see an ad for THIS SATURDAY'S CANS & COATS CHRISTMAS SHOW, of which Eleven Magazine is a sponsor!
So pick up a copy where you can find one, and support a very cool and promising local music mag, and support local music!
