about

In the spring of 2012 I moved to Ithaca, NY and started playing amplified music with Henry Phelps. We ended up reworking/rearranging a bunch of previously recorded RSC songs and so decided that we ought to call this thing that was getting underway Red Sled Choir as well. Of course, before too long, we were writing new songs as a two-piece; more energized, discordant and amplified, to be sure.

We are excited to finally share what has been in the works since December of 2012.

Drums, guitar and accordion recorded live in the Cope family cabin in Caroline, NY amidst towering pines coated in snow and slippered in fog (they were, in fact, all formerly christmas trees - how appropriate). Vocals and additional layers recorded at The Swift in Mecklenburg, NY (fresh as it was) in January 2013. Bass recorded on N. Geneva St. in Ithaca proper sometime in mid-2013.
