First: Our third album, released February 17, 2017 on our newly-formed label, Communal Table Records. “First” was written entirely by Ryan Lott (Son Lux) and recorded in New York City at Reservoir Studios in just 2 days. Produced by Thomas Bartlett and engineered by Pat Dillett, the goal was to capture the sound of the group nailing the material for the very first time, preserving the excitement of those initial performances.
