Lap steel, Hammond organ, harmonica, accordion and psychedelic guitars are not something you tend to expect from a band based in Washington DC. Formed in the fall of 1999, Brandon Butler and Joe Winkle, formerly of BOYS LIFE and Dave Bryson, formerly of BLUETIP, joined up with Evan Berodt and Derry deBorja in an attempt to do something more than anything they had done in the past. With subtle winks and nods towards early PINK FLOYD and 70's NEIL YOUNG, the overall sum evokes a giant cinematic background with earnest, direct songwriting in the middle. "This is one of the best bands I've seen in the last 10 years. And I'm not just talking local. I'm talking on any and every level, they are one of the greatest bands I have ever witnessed."
