Shape of Things To Come

Hey Everyone,

Here’s another track from the new ‘Zammuto’ album being released on April 3.  It’s one of the last tracks I made for the record, and this is the first time I’ve posted it anywhere.  It features Sean Dixon on drums, who is playing a 6/8 clave pattern double time with his right hand and halftime with his left.  It’s a mind bending thing to watch.  Gene Back made the string part by multitracking his violin, then placing the samples on a Nord keyboard.  I’ll post a video of it soon.  Thank for listening!

You can preorder the record here:  we’ll send it out next week:

Also, here are the dates for our tour with ‘Explosions in the Sky’ in April, plus a few of our own shows.  We just finished another round of rehearsals and the band is killing…  don’t miss it.

  1. Sadly both of your SF shows are completely sold out. 😦

    I think I’ll host dinner with some friends then a viewing of your Playall DVD instead.

    Also will there be a digital download through a not evil distribution service of your new album?

      Hey Rubin,

      I know, those SF shows sold out instantaneously. Bummer. All of the LPs including my special edition hand screen-printed zebra butt LP come with a digital download straight from our awesome label Temporary Residence. Otherwise I-tunes is ok… not a terrible deal for us, considering most people just take it for free.



      • Sadly I don’t have more room in my life for more physical stuff.

        I’m on Linux, so no iTunes for me, nor do I want to support their little monopoly. I’d be happy to grab the album for free through whatever channel and either mail you a check or hand you a wad of cash after your next show that isn’t sold out here, like I did the last time you rolled through.

        Additionally I think Bandcamp is a great digital media distributor.

        sounds good to me! I’ll check with my label to see if a bandcamp store is workable… i might sell FLAC right from my website instead.

    Very excited for the album. You should know the Southeast will miss you on the tour 🙂
