Welcome to the Cave


We rented a house in the Mojave desert just outside of Joshua Tree National Park. We set up a little studio and tried to record an album, but we couldn't come up with anything. After struggling for several days we decided to try a new approach. We got together in the same room with our instruments and said, "Let's just hit it." We started playing whatever came to our minds and somehow this process created 8 songs. Don't ask us where they came from, but we certainly enjoyed bringing them to this planet.

Joshua Tree National Park was an incredibly inspiring atmosphere which helped to open up our minds and ears. Every day we would hike the dead sandstone mountains and take in the dry desert air, allowing for a new type of musical expression we’ve never experienced before. After a few days of struggling to compose things individually we decided to get together and create spontaneously. Images of desert animals and Joshua Trees flashed before our eyes while new sounds emerged from our instruments. We hope you enjoy what we’ve come up with!
