brand New! horse Shoes!

We've been keeping busy while Jon and Marty are out on tour with Candy Claws. The past week we worked on a some new things and banged out a new song in the studio, for now though it's just a demo until Martin and Jonfen get back. This is both parts of a two part song that our friend libi came out and video taped for us. It was a good way to spend the night and a good way to keep busy. Dave and I also just played like forty rounds of horse shoes.

Art and Things

So when we created this blog we had it in mind that each member of Paean could use it as a place to show their other creative outlets. No one has so far, so I thought I'd be the first, and I'd share some of my recent drawings/drawing projects. Enjoy!

Good morning summer

the garden! (before anything was planted)

the lovely lake

the Lake House Show (Good Evening Titan on stage)

Hammer Time! (10-4 Eleanor on stage)

Summer is here and we have been thoroughly enjoying it. As of right now we are still writing new music. We locked ourselves in last weekend and spent our time working on two songs we are really excited about. Two of our band mates, Jon and Marty, are currently on the road with Candy Claws. We're really happy they're safe after their car CAUGHT ON FIRE. While we're not writing or recording we're just being lazy and enjoying swimming, going to shows, working in the yard and, of course, playing darts!

"Songs For Us To Sing" / New Songs

Songs For Us To Sing has been out about a month now, and we will be celebrating the release of it tomorrow night; Friday, April 30 in Denver at the Hi Dive.  Mehko and Ocean Birds will be playing (you really don't wanna miss it if you haven't seen them) as well as Bad Weather California and Heavy Drags.

See what some people are saying about it:

We have already dove head first into the next album, which we hope will be done in less than 18 months.  The album is 11 tracks right now.

These are the completed songs, and what you may hear at shows:

Street Magician Pt. 1
Street Magician Pt. 2
Coats on

We will be starting the recording in the next month.  We can't wait for it.  

For now, we will be selling "Songs For Us To Sing" at shows, or you can buy it online at our myspace.  The hard copy comes in a double pocket cardstock case.  Each case is hand numbered (1-200 for the first batch).  The covers were hand rolled for the yellow strip, and then we used a wood block and a press for the text and images on top of the strip.  The CDs are replicated and will play in any CD player.  Legit.  And there is a full-color 20 page booklet (thanks to Josh House for the layout and Citizen for the great print job) inside including all of the lyrics and art made by Anna.  We had a fun time making the cds... hope you enjoy!
