PURE X PLEASURE

…recording PURE X reminds of why I so cherished my first four-track and how easy it was to whittle away the night alone experimenting with backmasking techniques, learning to use pedals as instruments, deep listening, sneaking out of the house to smoke, and pining over my suicidal-blonde-cheerleader girlfriend. Why did I ever pretend to grow up?

They just released PLEASURE, their first LP on Acephale Records, which is a combination of new songs we recently tracked live to an MCI JH-16 2″ and older songs that were recorded remotely on a TASCAM 80-8 and remixed. I have listened to the album three times today; it has a sound that can’t quite let go of me, a welcoming sound, a sound that insistently reminds me to CHILL THE FUCK OUT.
