Side Animals

Yoooo! Happy Valentine's Day to you lonely dukes and duchesses. Here's one for you: Plaza Records just released David's previously internet-only eps in cassette tape form. Here is a little promo video shot by our pal Josh Murphy in DB's attic studio, Jurassic Park. You can pick up a copy and check out the other Plaza releases HERE.

You can also listen to a track here:

pagan sunsets from the axis of the town.

Attempting to read Korean for a stranger. 
Hi.

We have been keeping to ourselves since we got home from tour. We spent the first week of December in Chicago recording with the 9th Beatle, David Allen, at Observatory Studios. A new full length album rabbit-ed itself out of that hat. We're very happy with it. It's called ANIMAL CHATTER and it doesn't really sound like any of our other albums. Maybe that's a lie.

We're currently wrapping up sequencing and mastering. We'll have it for you in the spring. Until then, here are a few shows. We'll try out some of the new songs and you can tell us if you think it's all gone to Hell.

Thurs. 12 - Carbondale, IL @ Hangar 9 w/ Thelma and the Sleaze & Scifislands

* * * *

Back to creating our own reality.

Our plans for the rest of the year are simple: tour next month (more on that later), ward off panic attacks, finish a new full-length album, finally read Infinite Jest, destroy our enemies, raise our friends high, and listen to the grass grow.
