Let's Go Sailing is well thought out and incredibly catchy. Trained in classical piano from a young age, Shana Levy, the driving force in the band, draws on her roots and infuses them with strong pop influences to create music which is both melodically unpredictable and heartfelt.

Biography

In November of 2002, Levy left Irving to pursue Let's Go Sailing. She asked friends Tanya Haden, Nikki Monninger, Brent Turner and Byron Reynolds (Possum Dixon) to work on an album’s worth of material and soon enough they began working on a demo with Chris Chandler (Flaming Lips/Modest Mouse/Elliott Smith) and Rod Cervera (The Rentals/Weezer). The recording process quickly gained momentum and, with the help of Chris, Jim Putnam (Radar Bros.), and Ben Mumphrey (The Pixies/Frank Black), they decided to make a hi-fi record independently. The result is the 11 song LP “The Chaos in Order.” The band's lawyer, John Strohm who is a musician as well (Blake Babies/Lemonheads) is currently sending the full record out to labels as is their manager, Helena Ngo.
