released January 27, 2012

Re-inspired to play guitar by nu post-punk groups like Erase Errata, Meltdown and Quix*o*tic, Tobi's songwriting harken's back to her most musically innovative group, The Go Team. preferring The Raincoats, Young Marble Giants and The Television Personalities to the Gang Of Four, Tobi uses simplicity and starkness as punctuation, creating space for notes to be felt and rhythms heard. her guitar playing is deliberately spare yet meticulous where James' is wild and eccentric, with a 1981 northwest punk/1966 psychedlic flavour - like Ricky Erickson meets Greg Sage in a filed of flowers. all the while, Chris keeps the rhythms solid and driving yet simple, in a modern lovers/tronics kind of way, inciting dancers to chant and yell "SPIDER MAGIC!" until they fall on the floor, exhausted. The singing is classic Tobi Vail style, varying between SCREAMY SCREAMS and WHISPER-CORE. When they switch instruments it is clear their biggest influence is growing up in Olympia, listening to the first Black Flag single while looking at pictures of Mary Weis.

Tritonia1 to the Muse attention lends: Who both her Verse, and iust revenge commends. Then said t' her selfe: To praise is of no worth: Let our revengefull Powre our praise set forth. Intends Arachnes ruine. She, she heard, Before her curious webs, her owne preferr'd. Nor dwelling, nor her nation fame impart Vnto the Damsell, but excelling Art.

- Tobi, James & Chris.

Track Name: Do You Really Wanna?
Do You Really Wanna?

On the very first day of the eighth month
In the year of twothousandandone
I drove my car up and down the street
Until I saw you and I couldn't think of anything to say!

This went on for just about two weeks or so
I'd get scared when I tried to talk to you
You'd say the strangest things to me
As if you already knew me, hey!

How did you know?

solo

Do you really wanna go to the movies?
I don't really wanna go to the movies
But I'll go to the movies
If you're going to the movies
But I really wish you'd just
Come over to my house today!

On the twenty-fourth day of the eighth month
In the year of twothousandandone
I drove twenty miles just to see you play
You were leaving' and I told you
That I wanted you to stay!

Why did you go?
Track Name: Bacon Achin'
Did You Leave the Bacon in the Car?
