Illinois…

Illinois EP What the Hell Do I Know? out on Ace Fu Records



Post SXSW dates galore, and a tour with the Kooks in April/May…

“Layered vocals delivered through a telephone-cum-mic mingle with bright and pingy piano and funk-laden banjo on Illinois’ EP, a debut that somehow boasts pepped-up soundscapes even as Arch reflects on nosebleeds and bad days”
– Spin.com, Band of the Day http://www.spin.com/features/band_of_the_day/2007/03/070301_illinois/

Listen to “Screendoor
