The best kept secret in music


This band has no press


Watercolour Postcards, 2006.
We have songs that are played on the college radio station in Las Cruces, N.M. - KRUX 91.5 FM.


Feeling a bit camera shy


We started off building onto songs Steve had already written. This worked out well with Meg providing beats and harmonies.
We've played numerous shows, but one that stands out happened during Christmas of '06 with a band called Sleeper Car, the side-project of Jim Ward from Sparta. We played a solid show and got to hang out with the band afterwards. Jim, one of our musical influences, told us how much he enjoyed our set, which inspired us to keep pursuing our musical goals in true indie rock fashion! That, plus Meg bought these new glasses which really complimented her drum set... some say they shimmered!
Besides being influenced by Sparta and Sleeper Car, we are inspired by the music of the Pixies, Bright Eyes, Arcade Fire, the Shins, Little Brazil, Starflyer 59, Kristin Allen-Zito, Chris Black, Fancie, Ben Lee, and Meg's cats, Gollum and Precious. (There are many more also...)
