surprise climax (June 2011)
An 8-bit inspired split electronic EP release with The Wet Dreams. Tracks 1-3 are The Wet Dreams, tracks 4-6 are unexpected bowtie. Tracks 3 and 4 are both written with the same base melody.

habeas corpus (April 2011)
The sophmore unexpected bowtie release… and a bit of a departure from the debut, with tracks composed using Gameboys, an Amiga 600 and a Commodore 64. Not to mention the musical saw.
You can stream the tracks or download them individually via the Soundcloud player below, or download the full thing (including artwork) directly here.
26 hour days (2010/2011)
The debut album, filled with mandolins, banjos, and all sorts of other wonderful things. A folky affair.
It’s nice to have a choice, eh?
b-sides, c-sides, and oddities.
