Here’s the video for Tanager Peak!

It was made by Conor O'Toole and Simon Mulholland, who did an awesome job, so mega-thanks to them.

Tanager Peak is taken from our latest album Boa Howl. You can listen to it and order CDs and Vinyl at www.boahowl.com.

Vinyl!

The Vinyl have finally arrived! Looking great so they are… One thing: due to an unavoidable factory error the first pressings will have 3 hairlines on the empty/blank part of the etched D side (there is no music or design on there so it’s all good). Etching is a mad process but we’ll have this solved for the repress (we’re told). So basically the ones out next week are crazy limited edition, yeh? Hope you all enjoy.
