about

This is a special digital release. One day only. Based on Bandcamp's decision to donate 100 percent of funds this day to the ACLU.

After 2/3/17, we will close the sale, and release it on the planned day, 4/1/17.

This is meant to be part two of our last album, The Sun’s Gotta Shine. It is especially this music that we used in part of our late night sets at The Conor Byrne Pub in Seattle, Washington, at the Columbia City Theatre, the Blue Moon, and the Sunset Tavern. Thanks to Levi Fuller at Ball of Wax and Greg Vandy from KEXP’s show The Roadhouse for encouragement on these specific songs. Again, thanks to our friends who paid money and devoted the energy for our two and three hour very late night sets. These are the songs we played at those specific times, (sometimes we openly referred to those moments as “dogass” music).

More about this music:

This is a digital recording, like The Sun’s Gotta Shine. Colin J. Nelson recorded everything. Colin and Bart produced the record. Through digital recording, we were able to overdub vocals, and Peter Colclasure flew from his new home in California to contribute his accordion and piano playing—in the eight hours between his arrival and a large concert we had to pay for his plane ticket.

about

The Foghorns Seattle, Washington

Landing in Seattle via Iceland, Wisconsin and Brooklyn, The Foghorns are a very late night folk and roots rock octet. Bart Cameron writes the songs, a rag tag choir (nicknamed Bucket o Bourbon Choir), provides harmonies, rhythm, and broken glass, and Lauren Trew demonstrates the bass clarinet should be part of rock.While insane touring decreased in 2012, live shows are still a focus. ... more

Track Name: Like an Old Trans Am
Oh the way you used to look at me. Oh the way you used to look at me. Like an old Trans Am on the road. Like an old Trans Am going down the road. Oh the things you used to say to me. Yeah the way you used to talk to me. From a whisper to a laugh. From a whisper to a laugh. Today I saw a Pontiac in a dusty yard by the track. Waiting for someone to bring it back. Waiting for someone to bring it back. The memory of your summer sheets. And the way you used to look at me. Like an old Trans Am on the road. Like an old Trans Am going down the road. You’re gonna bury me.
Track Name: Wisconsin Polka
well I used to love you but I swear that I love you more now. I used to love you but I swear I love you more now. Let’s move to Wisconsin. We will never grow old. We’ll die young and pickled and viciously cold. And our friends will drive our cars, right off the road. Let’s move to Wisconsin we will never grow old. Oh Mother of Jesus, I don’t want to grow old. Oh Mother of Jesus, I don’t want to die cold. We are hardly thirty and I am two thirds of a man. But you’re two times a woman the way you spill out my hands. Let’s get down and dirty, I’ll be your filthy old man. Let’s get down and dirty, I’m your filthy old man. Come on dance with me, dance with me put your feet up into the air. Do the Wisconsin polka get some sweat up into your hair. Dance with me, dance.
Track Name: Get On with It
Why you gotta leave the lights on? Why you gotta kiss me for so long? Why you gotta stare at me, I ain’t changed, get on with it, baby get on. Get on with it. Get on with it. Get on with it baby get on. What’d you say to your other man today. What’s the reason we are running away. What’s your life like when you wake what do you say when you ain’t running out with me. Why you gotta leave the lights on. Why you gotta kiss me for so long? Why you gotta stare at me, I ain’t changed, get on with it baby get on. Oh and I hear the interstate and it’s rolling. It’s rocking the bed just like you. There’s a thousand people going to someone else and just like you they end up at home, and me you know I ain’t never gonna be alone. Get on with it, get on with it little lady. Your car is outside with mine. When you’re done you will dry and you will head on home to your man who gets to hold you through the night. And he thinks he has you so he holds on real tight. Get on with it. So rock rock rock rock me little lady. Rock me you still got that jelly roll. Rock rock rock rock me baby, but turn the lights out, turn the lights out when you go.
Track Name: Spanish Accusations
