here’s a song

October 30, 2009


Hi everyone,
We wanted to give you all something new to listen to so here’s a song I wrote last winter. My friend Simon and I filmed it in my apartment, which I am leaving soon. Otherwise I would have limes in my fridge too! Special thanks to Madonna for taking time out and flying the helicopter.
We’re still hard at work on our new record: Forthcoming LP. Check back soon because we just got a new camera so we should be vlogging again.

    This is a really great song. I can see this turning into something completely different and awesome. Kind of like how the songs from ES changed over time. Can’t wait for the new record. Good job, Dave & Co.! Just the thing I want to hear after a long marching band practice. 😀

    Awesome song! I have a stupid gear question for Mr. Monks. I was wondering what pedals you use on your live bass setup. Thanks! Great music

    Also, you guys should do another remix contest because I missed the Graves one and I’d love to get a chance to remix one of your songs.

    Hey Dave,
    Every time I hear you guys and your singing it just makes me so freaking happy and it has been that way since my friend played lesson in crime for me two years ago. Can’t wait for your upcoming album!!!
    Two quick questions:
    1) When are you playing in Mississauga again? I missed you at square one this summer.
    2) Is there somewhere I can get the guitar tab for Tesselate? I have yet to find an accurate one.
    Keep it up guys!!!

    i cant wait to see you guys again!!
