Recent Recordings

The Habit of Fear is our fourth full-length album. It’s an exploration of terror and respite, with lyrics often drawing on magical realism or covering vast swaths of time.

The best local indie music in October
“White Noise” stands out, thanks to propulsive drums from Freeland, who hasn’t lost his touch since rising to prominence with the Baltimore math rock band Oxes two decades ago.

Al Shipley, The Baltimore Banner

“This is an album that continues to deliver on repeated listening, both with its lyrical themes and musical arrangements revealing numerous layers and hidden depths, displaying a breadth of influences […] and yet at the same time feeling very current and of its time. [I]t’s a thoroughly enjoyable album up there with the best of this years which deserves to reach a wider audience.”

~ Graeme Tait, Americana-UK, Oct. 2022

Pirate A.M. Waves is Jon’s 2021 solo album –songs of loneliness, fear, and finding hope in strange places. Highlights include the title track, “Spirit Bear,” “I’m Not a Builder” (a lyrics collaboration with Joe Scala), and “Pildown Man.”

We have a live video! Our full ten-song set from the February 13, 2016 benefit show for Music4More. And it’s not just a video — we got a comprehensive multitrack board and room capture, so the audio sounds great!
