NEW RHYTHM SECTION SOLIDIFIED!
As reported last month, JW rhythm section Mike Shelbourn and original member Josh Puklavetz had jumped ship smack dab in the middle of recording our new record. Luckily we didn’t have to look too far to fill their still mysteriously smoking shoes.

Sure, “Four Future Standards” just came out two months ago, but we are already 2/13ths deep into chipping away at “Meltdown”, our 2nd full-length record that we promise will just fucking bury everything before it. It is somewhat conceptual - MELTDOWN having a double meaning of the obvious emotional tides but also in the alchemical sense… the melting down of layers to...
