Music

Before the recording of the band's first album, For Barbara Lee the original foursome was joined by Todd Hutchisen (guitar, vocals, keyboards) and Jason Ingalls replaced Greg Murphy on percussion. The album, released by Massachusetts indie label Kimchee Records in 2003, drew comparisons to Low and Galaxie 500, among others. Shortly after the release of For Barbara Lee, Barry left the band and was replaced as lead singer by Sarah Ramey. This new line-up recorded Pinkwood in 2005, which was released the following year by Portland's North East Indie Records . Chris Burns joined the band in April 2006 for the ensuing US tour, playing bass, vibraphone and percussion. The last album recorded before they disbanded, Nice Wheelz, has never been released, though a vinyl release titled Pinkwood 2 was issued in 2010.
