For five years now the three of us have sat beside a chiminea regularly—as often as possible—playing music together and talking. Talking and playing music together are the same thing. Matt sings and guides and responds while Adam and John play guitars. Sometimes other friends are there, singing or talking loudly or yelling, playing the banjo, maybe the bongo sometimes, the harmonica sometimes. Whatever works. Most things work, always. Some friends make sure the fire stays lit. We hope you like our music. We know we do.
August was made in August 2012. Adam and Matt have a studio in Bridgeport, CT where the EP was recorded. We had a lot of fun making it and we plan to return to that month frequently in our heads.
We recommend that every night you read yourself to sleep, and we want you to wake up the next morning full of hope and joy and fear.
