New Merch in the merch store!
August 13, 2013
We've added 3 new items for the end of summer: A tote bag with "jars of fire flies" design. And a mens' and womens' "Tuckamore Tree" design. Tuckamore trees are native to Newfoundland. Buffeted by storms and onshore winds, coastal white spruce and balsam fir trees develop into a contorted tuckamore forest. The salt spray and desiccation kill exposed buds. Growth occurs only on the protected side of these trees, so they seem to lean away from the sea as they grow.

Yer Fall Video
November 9, 2011
Our drummer, Phil Maloney (not to brag), put together a video for Yer Fall. It's all shot by the band from festival dates at Osheaga, Ottawa Blues, and some other festivals. This is what Phil had to say about making the video!
The two things I am probably most passionate about are music and film. While having played music my whole life and touring for years, I'm relatively new to the video world. Being on the road most of the time brings me to some pretty cool locations that I think deserve to be captured. This video is a combination of both passions, shot during a busy summer of shows and festivals as well as our time in the studio recording our latest record Seeds. It was fun to make and I hope you dig it!
October 11, 2011
Directed by Noah Pink. Filmed in and around St. John's, Newfoundland.
