11 piece mini-orchestra - 12 people if you count producer Jamin who helped make this the weird/wonderful release that it is. I initially had jumped on board to help them out with a one-off show, then I got asked to play more. Next thing I know I'm retracking drums on a bunch of songs that already had the orchestration recorded. This stuff is great, I've ALWAYS wanted to be a part of something like this.

We had planned on doing a full length album but as you can imagine, the mixing for a project like this is a little ridiculous. So in the meantime here is a 5 song EP that has intelligent string/horn arranging, harmonies, electronics, slide guitar, and some general weirdness (while still being catchy as hell).
