New music, Monsters in your home

OK, no more vague innuendoes: there’s a new EP in the works, and we’re hoping to get it finished in time for spring break. Why spring break? Because our last two official releases, God bless ’em, were a little rough around the edges, at least relative to the Bull Moose. Gibbard and Tamborello had nothing on the 7000 miles currently separating Portland from Vietnam, so we want to make sure we take the time to do this one right.

Here’s a very rough bedroom recording of “Seattle”, for the brave and/or impatient.

In other news, our cinematic stepchild Monster Camp just came out on DVD. We’re totally biased, but we still think it’s a great movie, and now you can add it to your Blockbuster or Netflix queue with the push of a button. Specifically: your mouse button, on those links in the last sentence. You can also pick it up for keeps at Hyrax Films’ online store, along with our original (but mostly instrumental (and weird)) soundtrack album.

Finally, if you’re into live music, there are a few new shows here that weren’t there yesterday.

  1. Of course I should have added that, too! The song is incredible, Hi-Fi or not. I can’t wait for whatever you two have coming up next!

  2. Yay for demos.

    Double yay for Monster Camp…i was glad to have that pushed to the front of my Netflix queue and enjoyed the heck out of it. I’ve been suggesting it to anyone who will listen as well.

    Keep on trucking with that EP…it’ll be worth it, i’m sure.

    Now all you need is another multi-city tour…oh, yes…
