"Want to go to the aquarium? They have these luminescent jellyfish. When you look at them, it's like floating through the cosmos. And I love the cosmos." - Psychic Gerson, on hearing our song VV emanate from the speakers of a luxury sedan. All hail the Powers of Water - churros and jellyfish for everyone!

This is amazing - Hit-Boy randomly selects Cut-Ups by SAVAK from thousands of LPs at Amoeba Music and turns their "funky rock & roll shit into some horror shit".

Happy May 18th to The Left Outsides, Alison Cotton, Trimdon Grange Explosion & The Hanging Stars! Found this old interview from the wonderful Comes With A Smile zine awhile back. Long thought it lost. Lots of youthful rambling but last page pull quote still so true for me.

Saddened to hear that Renato Malizia is retiring his monumental labor of love The Blog That Celebrates Itself after 11 years, 139 albums and 3000 + interviews. We'll always be grateful for your support of our music, Renato - especially the opportunity for us and Listening Center to cover the mighty Stereolab for this wonderful 2017 tribute album. Obrigada!

Excited that the music of James Chen (Hewson's dad) is being featured in the Museum of Chinese in America Spring / Summer exhibit The Moon Represents My Heart: Music, Memory and Belonging. The exhibit is on view through 9-15 and focuses on the transformative power of music in immigrant Chinese communities from the 1850s to the present.

Missed this back in 2017 but happy to have a copy of Tulips by Maston now that Phonoscope has done a 2nd run. Enchanting, Basil Kirchin vibes on these lovely instrumentals full of unexpected movement.

Thanks to Michael & Nancy from Please Touch for taking the time to interview us. Among other things, we talk about earliest influences, what we're working on now, the visual artists we love and that fateful evening the sonic might of SAVAK sent Union Hall up in flames.

One year ago we released our 2nd album, Birds of America. This photoset is by the talented artist Alan Mills Jr., who so graciously allowed a detail from his 2016 painting "The Birth of Socialism" to be used for our cover. We'll always be grateful for the use of this striking and arresting work which - to us anyway - visually expresses the themes of violence, chaos, resistance and flight found within the album's songs. Eternal thanks to the lovely Dom Martin as well for releasing the vinyl. ❤️

There's a beautiful new / old tune from The New Lines & Übertrager (features members of Friedrich Sunlight) - The Sound At The End Of The Road - on this lovely new compilation from Kleine Untergrund Schallplatten. The song dates back to the time of their first album, All That We See And Seem and was one of the first pieces of music that Hewson recorded with his Mattson Mini Modular. Audio in the comments, enjoy and get the vinyl while you can!
