Gearing up for the April 19 show at Comet Pingpong.
Also, we have all the tracking now for Mobius Strip Tease. Set to be released next week! Inspired by Don Delillo and Alan Watts, this song started with just drum machine and voice. Now, you’ll hear Ethan Foote on upright bass, Dave Klinger on flugelhorn, Peter Fox on guitar and organ, and beats by Kristof. 
Collaborators for this upcoming show include the above plus some seriously awesome vocal accompaniment by Margot Macdonald and Linsey Demming…. and more,

Some love from WeLoveDC.com: 

"The romantic ‘Moon Song’ called for unconditional love over a calypso beat… the room fell into a hushed silence simply at the sound of her voice.
The standout song, ‘Mobius Strip Tease,’ highlights a taste for clever wordplay, subversion of standard songwriting techniques like repetition, and a knack for unexpected twists. If a song title like ‘Mobius Strip Tease’ sounds pleasantly obscure and frankly adult, it successfully captures the feel of the entire act. This isn’t music for kids.”
