about

Recorded on an island in Washington state in a forest next to the ocean, by three naive and earnest Canadians with the aid of a wise sage.

Currently only available on cassette or download. After too many arguments over the order of tracks, we encourage listeners to try playing in a random order.
Stay tuned and stay gold.
