If you buy the vinyl record of ‘Lazaretto,’ there’s a floating hologram that appears when it plays. Check it out here.
“When George Wein asked me to come aboard I immediately compiled my list of every artist that for some reason or another has not played Newport Folk but should. It’s always a pleasure to cross off a name, especially as there are so few left on the original list. In fact the elusive handful remaining have become known around the office as the ‘White Whales’.”

Last month, we woke at dawn to play a live session at KEXP. It’s one of those special radio stations and studios and we’re all still a little giddy it happened. They just posted the session for everyone to enjoy.

This is what we’re about.

This is what we’re about.
