Thought it might be cool to keep fans abreast of our activities via blog, so here it is. We'll be posting photos, some mp3s, and general updates on here, so you might want to check in every so often to see what's happening in our little corner of the world.
First, an update: We did some recording a while back with our good friends from the band Pontiak and the results will go on an Arbouretum/Pontiak split LP called Kale.
The release date is July 22nd (Thrill Jockey Records), and we're really excited about it. There will be a limited pressing of 1000 copies in the LP format, as well as high-quality Mp3 downloads available. The split will feature songs by excellent Welsh songwriter/instrumentalist John Cale and new original songs by both bands.
Joining us on our side is recently-added guitarist Steve Strohmier. He moved back to Baltimore a few months ago after living in Brooklyn for a few years, and we're really happy to have him around to play music with us. He's an incredible guitarist and a damn fine singer to boot.
Anyone wanting to get a live peek at what we've been up to can catch us at the Talking Head Club in Baltimore on June 4th. We'll be playing with Pontiak, Rob Wilson/Television Hill, and a really cool new band from Italy and Chicago called Blake e/e/e.
