Greetings everyone –

First and foremost, we would like to extend our collective gratitude to all of you for sticking with us. Although quiet, we’ve been quite busy this past year. It’s a bit of a blur to be honest –

(the start / a month long cabin retreat / several weeks of discussions / studio b / first, second, third, fourth, and fifth drafts / why is it still snowing / countless demos / a few more days in the studio / kevin’s in the boat again / better living / two more weeks in the studio / scrap this song / recycle that song / trevor / studio c / actually – on second thought, scrap that song too / pool night / studio v / el limon / rearranging the living room / fireplace / fire pit / the library / the rx-11 / that bird / quiet going up the stairs please / chopping wood / the finish)

– but we’re finally there and ready to fill in the blanks.

We proudly present to you:

Rooms of the House
