Here is a Christmas song we recorded for your ugly Christmas sweater parties (©Urban Outfitters). However, instead of streaming it, please buy it! All proceeds are going to local animal shelters. Give the gift of love to a non-human species! And Happy Holidays! :)

We recently taped a session for NPR’s World Cafe in Toronto, where we dished on some details about writing and recording our new album, as well as debuting three stripped-down versions of some brand new songs (along with a track from The Slideshow Effect).
i. “Get Back”
ii. Honey Baby Darling
iv. Little Expressionless Animals
More good stuff to come.
We are playing online at stageit.com tomorrow at 6pm EST! Tickets are here!
We’ve been through a long winter that we weren’t sure was going to end until about last week. I know you are distracted now by colours you haven’t seen in eight months, but hopefully you can find your way to one of these shows.
Dear Plant Earth,
Canada is cool and all, but they do not fulfill my needs as a strange and cranky individual who likes to stay in bed and eat dumplings while I re-watch all the episodes of Arrested Development. There is too much driving and not enough sleeping involved in playing shows in “real life”. This is why they invented the internet, so I can be lazy. Please watch our online show at stageit.com on June 23rd where Evan and I will play some songs for you and be extra comfortable knowing we are not sleeping in a shifty motel after the concert is done.
Make song/cover requests on our facebook page!
You can buy tickets here! (Pay what you can)
See you all soon!
We wanted to share this music video for everyone as a way of saying thank you for sticking with us this past year. You’ve dragged us around the world and we have been fortunate enough to meet so many of you, and we feel that a sincere, heartfelt, weirdly familial, sloppy hug (in the form of a song) is in order.
The gratitude we wish to express reaches far beyond the touching messages of hope, and the insane donations you’ve provided us at our lowest point, but extends to the good times we’ve shared with all of you this past year. It’s 2013 and some of you are actually still buying music. In the time it takes to read this sentence (with the same energy you’ve exerted) you could be stealing our record, and literally every song ever recorded by a human being and Elvis.
So consider this music video our modest thank you for being the type of people that you are. It’s about friendship, and love, and is kind of a mix between Randy Newman’s Toy Story theme and the intro to The Golden Girls. You’ve given us a gift, the size of which cannot possibly be exaggerated. Thank you for being a friend indeed.
After three weeks of traveling through Europe, we have finally arrived back in Canada. Thanks to everyone who came out to the shows, we very much enjoyed playing them! Highlights include the spilling of our drummer’s blood all over a Zagrebian cinema and mass confusion in London evolving the split cultural understanding of the word “ham”.
Here are a few videos from our travels - the first, the band looking extra stylist doing a rendition of “Little Expressionless Animals” in Hamburg, Germany; and the second, our loving ode to Father John Misty’s “Only Son of a Ladies Man” from Paris (check out some of our other songs from this session here).
