about

About three years ago, we did this really cool Christmas show at a coffee house. I worked up some quick arrangements of traditional Christmas tunes that would sound like us. I finally decided to properly record them, and add a few others as well. I threw in an original tune, "Christmas Eve".

I always felt that there should be more Christmas records that aren't cheesy or commercial. Instead, I wanted to hear more Christmas music that embodied the mysterious and solemn side of the holiday.

Summar and I recorded this during Thanksgiving weekend of 2012. Five days from start to finish.
