The band have three full lengths in the bag already, the first coming in 2004. Their latest offering, ‘Glory Hope Mountain’, their debut UK release through Bella Union (home to Fleet Foxes), has propelled them into the limelight. The band is a five piece but they have an extended family of friends and collaborators that they regularly perform with including the satin voiced Cacey Mecija who you can hear on one of their stand out tracks ‘The Lullaby (Mountain)’.

  1. Speaking of the satin-voiced Casey Mecija, her and her band Ohbijou (from Toronto) will be the support band for this gig.

  2. I heard a rumor Bon Iver was supporting? Anyone confirm?
