”I can honestly say that at the start of the year we had no ambition to make another record,” says guitarist Aaron "Surf " Tijerina, “considering we put out three albums last year without a break in between). But we had been working on a few new songs and just added our new drummer (Chad Koenig) and thought we should record some scratch tracks. Also, we had an itch to do a record outside the studio. A DIY-style record.
They ended up recording the “Unifying Ideas” EP at bassist Matt Uhler’s house, where they practice.“The soft concept for the record was to show the band’s diversity and musical ability and to use the new songs we'd been working on,” Tijerina says. “I feel the record turned out well (considering the fact that we only had three microphones, one of which was from a kid’s karaoke set) And a home PC from 2005.”
If the band name has you thinking surf-rock instrumental, you should know that surf is merely one of several ingredients. “Fresh Grooves” is an instrumental blend of surf-rock and exotica, but four of the EP’s five tracks feature vocals, including a bittersweet ballad titled “Verse 3” whose understated sense of atmosphere should speak directly to fans of the Velvet Underground’s first album.
The single "Lost and Found" is about a dream that Tijerina had about his girlfriend and the idea that when they die they might not end up in the same place. Review: AZ CENTRAL
