Hey all, long time no chat. We've been pretty busy with life so recording and playing out have taken a bit of a backseat to making music. Sometimes you just have to take a deep breath and not do much.
So, it's with a great deal of excitement that I say that the final vocals have been finished for our new EP and with mixing almost done I think it's safe to say we're going to have a little music to share with everyone in about a month. Maybe a little sooner, maybe a little later.
I've been struggling with what format it should come out on for a while now. Vinyl is very expensive and takes forever to get done and while it would be my preferred manner in which to release it I think we're probably going to do a limited run of CDs and let the rest be digital downloads and online streaming.
Ok, here's the song list for the upcoming release (probably not in the correct order)
- Go Back to Sleep
- Back Into the Sea
- The Letter S
- No Kid
- I'm Falling for Her Again
Marco did an amazing job engineering the record and playing kick ass drums, bass, guitar and some other things! I can't keep track. Elizabeth Elkins rocked some bass, Jim Combs played some keys, Kim Ware and Alyce Green sang some vocals and I did some stuff too. Who did I forget? I think that's everyone.
I hope we can do a video for 1 of the songs so we can release that at the same time. I'm thinking we'll do one of the first 3 songs listed above.
OK, stay tuned, check back.

Our friend Nicole Kibert took all these cool pictures of us a Porchfest! Cruise over to her Flickr page to check them out. It was such a great day of music and friends.
1 year ago we put out our self titled album and I wanted to celebrate the moment by giving you fine folks that haven't grabbed a copy yet to enjoy a free download of the full album. Also, we've still got a few t-shirts, vinyl records and a handful of CDs remaining in the store at heavily discounted prices. We're getting close to being done with a new record and it's time to clear the closets to make room for new vinyl and new shirts! Enjoy!
Head on over to the Shows page and check it out!
From the BeAtlanta Site:
This video was recorded by our great friend Robert Valentine (of Atlanta Film Scene) last Friday, March 27th. It was the 2nd house show in our charity unplugged series this year. The video is the singer, John McNicholas, of Atlanta band The Sunset District playing to an intimate crowd of Beatlanta fans. Needless to say it was quite an awesome night filled with some very awesome music and good times with new and old friends. The Beatlanta House on FacEBOoK.
