about

Peace Sign aesthetically pulls from the complete canon of rock & roll: from classic to indie to the obscure including bands like The Tall Dwarfs, Television, The Kinks, Karen Dalton, Wilco, The Baptist Generals, vashti bunyan, Arthur Russell, Gram Parsons etc. etc. The album avoids stylized production in favor of clearly transmitting the folks in the room knocking about on their instruments.

The generally positive energy of the music doesn't exactly always betray the darkness of the lyrical content. The album ruminates upon failure and mistrust - the overwhelming kinetic energy produced by things gone wrong. The play between positivity and negativity may be a reflection of the view that one should be honest about failures and shortcomings - that this doesn't have to lead to sadness or self pity, but instead can steer one towards catharsis, clarity and possibly positive action.

All songs are mixes of full-band live takes with additional overdubs recorded in living rooms around Los Angeles, excepting Peace Sign which was a demo that we could never beat.

Marias is pronounced whichever way.
