about

PIXELS is a proper HI-FI collection of old favourites from our first three LO-FI records &&& new classics - Heaven, Big Whoop, &&& SRIRACHA!

ABOUT THIS RECORDING: (GEEK TALK)
This HI-FI collection, PIXELS, was recorded at EYELAND, a beautiful analog recording studio in Providence, Rhode Island - featuring TWO-INCH TAPE (::swoon::) and a beautiful vintage TRIDENT CONSOLE. The multitrack tape recordings were carefully digitized track by track to be completed mixed at Studio subModern, the bands personal studio. Two additional songs were recorded at subModern on a lovely TASCAM 388.

--------------

HEY L@@K ===> Purchasing the album through bandcamp gets you an EXCLUSIVE BONUS TRACK, "Grunge Heaven," a fuzzified in-yr-face version of the opening tune.

--------------

This album is dedicated to Julius, our beloved studio cat, b-man, and the Talking Heads, who, between you and me, are still the best band to come out of Rhode Island.

Thank you to: benny & jeff & the columbus co-op, teegan, lauren, phoebe, gymshorts, hot tramps, dusty, david, alex, polina, the brother mccurdy, ethan, neil, dylan and all of you xoxo.
