a song to trim the tree WITH.

to keep in the spirit of the holidaze--taylor & i have recorded a christmas carol for all of you to enjoy! granted, yes, there are really only [4] four days to enjoy this little nugget of goodness, but nonetheless--it's a great substitute for that ol' televised yule log! hehe. we hope santa leaves you amazing presents 'neath the TWEE. here's our gift to you. :)

christmas [baby, please come home]

ps : check out the great post from our friend cecilia!

*with the holidays over, we've taken the track down as of 12 january 2009. couldn't last forever, kids! ;P

a fine MESS.

the smallest gestures make the biggest impacts--at least in our experiences. we were the subject for the latest blog entry by our new friend cecilia [from östergötlands län, sweden]. a compliment in & of itself. we were excited to hear that she was willing to help promote our music through her brilliant music blog, i am the crime. it is humbling [and also a sense of great pride] to know that someone [other than ourselves] is willing to commit their acceptance of what we do to writing. kind of makes it more real--to see it in print, y'know? do yourselves a favour & check out her blogs. you might learn a thing or two. :)
