So, as we’ve mentioned before, we’re going to NYC Popfest here at the end of May. We’d love it if you could make it a little easier on our wallets, if you’re able, by donating to our Indiegogo campaign. You’ll feel nice and you’ll get some neat stuff!
Check out the trailer for “Just a Pup”! Lots of fun stock footage in this one, including clips of Jack Dempsey with a 200 pound ice cream cone. Old-timey magic! This is your first chance to hear all four songs, or clips of them anyway.
Look at our purty, purty vinyl! You can order it from manic pop! records on June 14th.
Featuring sock puppets!!
Here’s the info, in case you don’t want to hear the news delivered by little cloth people.
“Just a Pup” EP Release Show

I’m extremely pleased to announce the release of our next EP, Just a Pup, on the new Manic Pop! label. It’ll be officially released on June 14th, though we will have copies for our show at NYC Popfest on May 31. Here’s the cover:
Here’s the track listing:
- Just a Pup
- Idaho, America in 2049
- We Don’t Have Any Cuts to Waste
- It’s Not Unusual (Featuring Liz Hunt)
- It’s got our sad/happiest song ever (“Just a Pup”).
- It’s got our two most political songs ever (“Idaho, America in 2049″ and “We Don’t Have Any Cuts to Waste”)
- Liz Hunt, from one of my favorite bands The School, guests on vocals for our cover of “It’s Not Unusual.” She does an amazing job of making this song her own, nearly snatching it entirely from her fellow countryman Tom Jones.
- Danny Rowland, from metal band (not really) Seapony, does a gorgeous guitar solo on “Just a Pup.”
- The title of “Idaho, America in 2049″ is based on a line in a Treepeople song. Boise reprazent!
Here’s the results of our photo shoot a week ago in Nampa, Idaho, at Flying M Coffeegarage and White Pine boutique. Photos by the super-talented MaryAnne Remer.
As the only indiepop band in the state (and I’d venture to guess the quad-state area of Idaho, Montana, Utah, and Nevada) it gets a little lonely sometimes. So, I’m overjoyed and honored to announce that we are going to be playing at NYC Popfest 2013. Here are my top five reasons why I’m so excited about this:
- I’m guaranteed to love almost every band playing. How many festivals can you say that about?
- There are going to be loads of indiepop dorks there. I’ll be able to get into heated discussions over which Belle and Sebastian album is the best. That’s my idea of a good time.
- I’m finally going to get to eat at the Carnegie Deli. I am an unabashed pastrami enthusiast.
- There are virtual, internet-based buddies that will become real-life buddies (hopefully).
- This line-up is absolutely stellar. The Bats? The Monochrome Set? The School? Incredible.
Check out this video interview of me by one of my favorite blogs, Bloodbuzzed, at one of our favorite restaurants, Boise Fry Company. Watch me talk about music stuff right after I ate way too many fries! In this interview I mention Adam and Darcie, Souvenir Stand, Camera Obscura, Veronica Falls, The Pastels, Rose Melberg, manic pop! records, The Choo Choo Trains, and others.
We’re really pleased to announce the release, on March 15, of Village Green, a compilation of the three bands/artists that comprise the Village Ten Collective: us, Adam and Darcie, and Matthew Hoiland/Canoe. We’re all covering each others songs. Exciting stuff! Can’t wait for you guys to hear it. Here’s the cover.
