Wanderlust is the result of two days at Church House Studios and features both original compositions and music composed by our main influence, Hermeto Pascoal. This record features the regular members of the band, as well as some friends that often play with us.
A big thank you to David Boyle for engineering and mixing this music, Bruce Brown for mastering it, and Caio Barreira for creating the album artwork. Also, thank you to all the musicians, friends, and fans that we have come across since this project began. We're excited to present this music to you and we hope that this is only the beginning of our journey.
The music was recorded live as much as was possible and features minimal overdubs. We think that this results in a record that captures some of the same energy present at our live shows. We hope that you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed creating it.
