In other news, we should have a few shirts in the next week or so, which is something we've never done. But, we're getting some help from some good friends and artists so they should be extra wearable. Also a Japanese version of our album Little Brite is set to be released over there on August 6 on Moamoo, a Japanese label. The artwork and packaging are slightly different from the original and the Japanese version has two extra tracks and a video for the song Sleep Whale, which we should be posting on here pretty soon. We'll have more details later. Also, look out for tour updates and entries on here. Take care, mmoomm

Hey we have a blog?

Apparently so.  Things have gradually been picking up steam here in the mom house since we released our ep Little Brite in August.  Now with school behind us and a bright horizon before us we decided to have a place to document pictures, videos, news, and you know... blog stuff

Yesterday we went to Oak Cliff to contribute some string parts to an upcoming This Will Destroy You split release with Lymbyc Systym.  It was recorded by John Congleton who makes rock and roll records in the band the paper chase.  You might want to check out his list of people he's worked with: wiki
