Putting the Days to Bed cover image

Putting the Days to Bed, the third LP is a chronicle of some rough times: a collection of songs that make you feel like you’ve been talking to someone really interesting in an airport for the last hour and, although you know you’ll never see them again, you just told them your whole life story and a part of you will love them forever. Featuring Pushover and Rich Wife. Produced by John Roderick and released in 2006.

Ultimatum cover image

The Ultimatum EP is gilded with string quartets and analog synths, but at its core are four adventurous songs about disaster. Electric guitar takes a backseat to toy keyboards and trashed drum-loops as shuttles crash, lovers drown, and machines take over the Earth. Featuring The Commander Thinks Aloud and Ultimatum. Released in 2005.

Bonus: two live, solo acoustic performances which reveal the naked power of John Roderick’s songs minus the studio finery. Also available on 140-gram vinyl with an additional 4 bonus tracks.
