"Every so often, we gather at BrotherSpanky's place with one purpose in mind: to absorb LP records. Along with a small group of friends, we fellowship over the history preserved in dusty grooves and liner notes. Usually these sessions become conversations about recording and musicianship that flow into the wee hours. As habit became tradition in our collective, the music shared during Vinyl Fridays began to influence our sound.
We invite you to join us for a journey through wax, as we explore records from our personal collections that inspire us and have influenced our forthcoming work. Keep digging,"
