This is our first EP. We recorded it with our dear friend Pat Loundas in his basement. We spent about five hours over the course of two days to knock it out. Its 4 songs written over a 3 year period, played at each other's houses and with other bands of which we have been a part. We hope you enjoy it.

praise for the colorado thrift ep:

Kacey Wade Stewart, Will Davis and Pat Loundas in just 5 hours have managed to capture a irresistible lo-fi charm with this brilliantly understated EP. The first thing that draws you in is the warm guitar tone punctuated by the cyclic banjo picking which are prominent through out the EP. The opening 'Hard To Tell's' uptempo flow is hard to resist, and opens the way for the Guthrieesque 'Train Song' with it's homesick imagery.
Washboard percussion and Will Davis' banjo add to the uplifting 'Grow Old' beautifully, the 4 track EP is rounded out by another undeniably catchy love song 'Pearlsnap button'.
The whole EP captures the good vibe of friends making music together and boasts a charming blend of Folk, Americana and a touch of Bluegrass. Well worth a listen, and the why not when it's free to download? It's already on my iPod!
