Videos

Welcome to the 21st century! We’ve been recording all of our music at Eric’s studio in Brooklyn (in a 718 area code, naturally), which makes it easy for us to set up a bunch of video cameras. We pass the raw footage to Phil in the Bronx (another 718 area code), who lovingly slices the video into something that we hope is worth watching. You can be the judge.

El Sombrero

El Sombrero

Imagine yourself in a dark cantina south of the border. It’s noon, 100+ degrees outside. A silhouetted stranger approaches the flapping double doors. Everybody in the cantina stops talking and holds their breath when they see….. El Sombrero!

Downshift!

Downshift!

Have you ever sat behind the wheel of a 500 horsepower muscle car and ripped through the gears? We have. This is our tribute to speed.

Sputnik

One night as Phil was pondering the mysteries of the universe, he thought about the first thing humans ever shot off the planet– Sputnik. That had to be a weird experience for the satellite.

Lovetone

We wish there was a deeper spiritual meaning to this tune, but Phil basically wrote it about his love affair with a very cool effects pedal– the Meatball Lovetone envelope filter. Dig it.

Something

This is a great tune written by former Beatle George Harrison and arranged by Phil. Man, what a great tune.

Temple with Chair

Yeah, so what’s with the weird title? Is it some kind of subversive Masonic chant? Well, not exactly. Matthew swears it’s just an anagram. Can you figure it out?

I Don’t Care

This is an original penned by Phil. It’s a love song. You dig.

Skirmish at the Farmers Market

I don’t know where Matthew purchases his produce, but it sounds like a crazy place! Buyer beware.

Song for my Daughter

This is a very cool tune written by violinist Christian Howes that we all dug playing. Here it is for your enjoyment.
