We’re excited to learn that one of our songs is used in the super funny and creative sketch comedy series Portlandia.

“Does it Matter” can be heard in Season 3, Episode 5 (Squiggleman) in the sketch called “DMV Fairytales”, as Carrie finally gets her driver’s license renewed at the end of a really lousy day.

Watch the episode on Netflix.


From the 2011 EP One Last Show of Hearts, here’s the song “Understand”, as seen by a daring gull.

One Last Show of Hearts is now available in tactile form.

Available now on bandcamp and shipped from our house to yours, the slimline CD + lyric booklet include a free download card that you can share with a friend or relative of your choice (or for that matter, a total stranger). You also get an immediate digital download of the album, so it’s kind of like 3 albums for the price of 1.

Buy it now on our bandcamp page.

New video for the song “False Start”, from the EP One Last Show of Hearts.
