Yes ya'll. 'Tis the season and all that. We've been posting our limited arsenal of holiday material on SoundCloud over the past couple of weeks, and just wanted to make sure you knew. Cause we're sure you're not sick of holiday music yet. So please to enjoy! We offered our dub version of 'Winter Wonderland' as a free download last year and we so no reason to not offer it as a bite sized stocking stuffer this year. It's better than coal!
And in non-holiday related news ... 1.5 shows to announce ... !

Almost forgot, we're also gonna be part of this year's WXRT 'Best of 20' Holiday Spectacular .. where you can hear the tunes below paired with our impeccable wit and ability to write 45 seconds skits featuring drunken Santas, bar-fighting holiday characters and what to tell your cabbie on the way home from NYE. This year will be highlights of the past 20 years and we're honored to be part of it. Tune In!
raw, organic, inspired.
tastes lo-fi with hi-fi tastes
tying a certain mentality to its roots
live instruments as samples as instruments
in a sort of dilla / madlib tribute
assimilation from the edges of a jazz community
spinach prince bring
that back nod half step fall
raw, organic, inspired
What started out as a recording collaboration between Brooklyn and Chicago has turned into a full length original album that has been downloaded all over the world for free. Featuring members of The Drastics, Silences Sumire, Colorlist, Moongriffin and more.
