about

Fur State is a 4-track acoustic/electronic instrumental album that was recorded in 2004 after the band moved from Los Angeles to Austin, TX. Armed with what we could afford, we then set out to make this album and thought of little else at the time. We recorded 8 songs and called it the "Fur State" - Final performance mix to cassette master was dated 12/8/04. As capricious as we are, we then went about our lives and never released the tape. We found more synths, a drummer and we wrote lots and lots of songs. We made new friends and made new albums. We toured, played, listened, lost, worked, found, recorded, reinvented ourselves and recorded and reinvented ourselves again and yet somehow have come back full circle to this cassette tape recorded almost 6 years ago.

We found the master cassette snapped and sitting where we left it: in an old boombox at the back of a storage closet. Our friend Danny Reisch (Good Danny's) helped us reconstruct the tape housing and splice it together and then master the little cassette that could.

We are delighted to finally share this private little creation. It feels timeless to us, like we could have recorded it today or maybe even 6 years from now. We hope it affects you in the same dreamy way.
From our 4-track to your stereo...
