Naked freakpop songs rich with boy/girl harmonies, cinematic lyrics and melodic plot twists, all recorded live as a trio and peppered with wineglass organ, trumpet, viola, accordion.
The trio is Greg Giles (vocals and guitar), Kelly Atkins (vocals and flute), and Kevin Seal (Rhodes, piano and vocals) -- recorded by Jim Greer at Ninth Street Opus studios in Berkeley, California, and featuring performances by Nils Erickson (guitar), Caitlin Tabancay Austin (vocals), Rebecca Seeman (wineglass organ), Darren Johnston (trumpet), Melanie DeGiovanni (accordion), Laela Peterson-Stolen (viola), Tim Silva (vocals), and Tom Purtill (vocals).
These songs have been stripped to their raggedy bones: reimagined, rearranged, ironed out and stitched back together. And two more besides.
