What’s the band’s origin story?
The band started when Eddy was living in Milwaukee, attending UWM, and Dan was living in La Crosse. Eddy would write songs and send the demos to Dan, who would record drums to the demo and send them back. They then got together for a weekend in Milwaukee to record at Eddy’s friend’s studio, the end result of which being the self-titled debut album. They played a few shows, but the distance made it difficult to get anything serious happening. When Eddy moved back to La Crosse a few years later, the two had the opportunity to focus on songwriting and really finding the band’s sound. Since then the band released our second album “Raggedy Business” in 2017, and will be releasing their third album “Historic Ploughton” in September 2018.

Where did you record?/Who did you work with?/How was the experience?
We recorded our latest album ourselves in Eddy’s house. Everything except drums on the “Raggedy Business” album was also recorded in Eddy’s house because the studio we were working with unexpectedly closed after drums were recorded. We like recording ourselves because it takes the clock off the wall and gives us the freedom to explore any weird idea that pops up. Both of those albums were mixed by Landon Arkens at Blast House Studios in Madison, WI. Landon does stellar work, and is a great guy to work with on top of it.
