Prom is out TODAY

When I was young, and still sometimes again, I would obsess over albums for days or weeks or even months at a time. I hope that we made an album like that with Prom, that at least someone can obsess over in their bedroom or dorm room or office cubicle or whatever. Here's the tracklisting with a comparison to a song off an album I/we obsessed over at some point (mostly Smiths stuff). Oh, and you can download the last track "3D Voices" off our Bandcamp.

1. Tiger Trees - Our "A Rush and a Push and the Land Is Ours"
2. Prom - our "Shoplifters of the World"
3. Expression Of - our "Bigmouth Strikes Again"
4. Imagining the Bodies - our "Sweet and Tender Hooligan"
5. Skating with Girl - our "Perfect Circle" (REM) or "Red Apple Falls" (Smog)
6. Psychics - our "Unhappy Birthday"
7. Aisha - our "This Night Has Opened My Eyes"
8. Into the Arms - our "Death of a Disco Dancer"
9. Sharing - our "Kicker of Elves" (GBV)
10. Don't Worry, You're Prettier - our "Sleepy Joe" (Smog)
11. 3D Voices - our "Please Please Please Let Me Get What I Want"

Enjoy!

  1. really love the new album -- i have indeed been obsessing over it. i read elsewhere on your blog that most of the songs on Prom are essentially in the same tuning. could i ask what that tuning is? it would make me really happy to try and figure out some of your songs at home!

    best,

  2. After careful analysis of a video (Into the Arms) I think the B string is tuned to a C. Haven't got to the rest yet. Really great album. Dave

  3. Update on tuning. Bottom string (high E) is C. B string is F. G is G# D is now C. Yikes!

  5. Sorry I never got to this...

    The tuning for most songs on Prom is (from lowest in pitch to highest)

    E
    G#
    C
    G# (octave up from first)
    F

    I believe that 3D Voices is
    E
    G#
    C
    G
    F
    A
