Former art college roommates Jett Farley and Jeffrey Charreaux set out to recapture that lost feeling of noodly Game Boy soundtracks mixing with mom's music off in periphery. Playing Super Mario Bros. in the back of the SUV with David Bowie or The Doors pumping from the dashboard.
Jeffrey, Jett and Roy Appleman traveled to NYC in search of the warm, analog sounds of Clap Your Hands Say Yeah and Vampire Weekend. Hitting up Williamsburg friends to scrounge vintage gear and a recording loft, they orchestrated their trashy Coming of Age epics with borrowed, ramshackle guitars and 60s vacuum tube technology. The steady stream of basic cable Coming of Age movie images--on muteinfiltrated the bildungsromanesque lyrics.
