"This acoustic-based four-piece band is more folk than country and not alt-anything, though their ever-present harmonies and jangle-folk songcraft are reminiscent of onetime alt-country standard-bearers The Jayhawks."
-Chris Herrington, The Memphis Flyer

Forgive us if we have a bit of a complex. For once, though, it's not due to the pressure of writing, performing and recording in the shadows of Memphis greats like Elvis Presley, Al Green and Alex Chilton, but rather the knowledge that no entity that touched the production of this record (aside from the band, thankfully) is still in business. Let us explain.

When recording commenced on Can't Remember the Last Time in December 2004, we stepped into legendary Easley-McCain Studios (White Stripes, Wilco, Jeff Buckley) with the plan to make a live-sounding and immediate-feeling follow-up to our 2003 debut Refrain. We had a great time playing our new songs live in the studio, and we hope that comes through on the record. But, that's about where things stopped going according to plan.

In March of this year, just as we were about to do final mixes of the tracks, Easley caught on fire and, subsequently, shut down operations. So, master tapes in tow, we headed to Memphis SoundWorks to finish up. On our final night of production there, producer/engineer Posey Hedges announced that it was his final night in the business. The next day, he was set to start running his recently acquired lumber mill. And on the day we approved the final version of our record at CryRock Mastering, the technician told us (you guessed it!) that he'd be shutting down his studio in order to take a teaching job.

So, here you have it. A record that was, evidently, finished just in time. We kind of like it, and we wouldn't have it any other way.
