Ah stupid puns. How round they make the world go. Or something.
What I meant to say was: you may have noticed that there's a new "Honey White Audio Player" frame at the bottom of our mybandrocks.com site. Right now it's streaming both of our studio CDs in reverse order (How Far, then My Band Rocks). I'm working on the live shows page so that the audio there will function as it does on our mirror show pages at archive.org (where most of the live audio is hosted).
Long story short is that our site now makes noise when you want it to. There is of course a Stop button if we rock you too much. You're welcome.
Don't forget that all our live audio is still at archive.org. There are flashy new covers like those pictured above for (left to right) Del Playa 11/16/02, UCSB 1/30/03, Wildcat Lounge 4/26/04, and Nicholby's 4/20/05.
Last summer about this time I posted our entire recorded live performance history on archive.org, and now I'm in the middle of uploading a ton of our old videos to YouTube. They're low-resolution versions of stuff from our 3 shows that were videotaped in 2003 & 2004, plus a few other things. More info when it's all done. Til then:

So in the absence of activity recently I thought I'd note that over the last few gigs in '05 we had been debuting some newer (and new versions of older) songs. The "Lightning Rod" remake was only one of these, but as you also may know Bryn's soaring epic "Nightfall" has opened the last 3 gigs. He has another one called "Green Hills" too, a stately waltz that we polished off back in March but haven't tried live yet.
Brian has been writing too- lots of music coming from up in the Bay. One that he's finished is still title-less but is a cool groove that seems (to me) to be a combo of the loopier Pearl Jam tunes like "Rats" and the wry, shuffly cool of recent Eels stuff.
As usual I've been having a bastard of a time trying to finish lyrics, but two verses have arrived for a rocker provisionally titled "Slash & Burn" and I did actually complete a lyric called "Hold Still" and melded it to a slide riff-based tune of Bryn's that we jammed out in the studio but didn't do anything with at the time.
Since Sean has returned from Africa, he's been clamoring to see a gig (he's been on the other side of the world for our whole existence), so we'll see what we can do. Maybe we might be able to invade the OC later this summer- my July is sort of busy as many of you also may know.
UPDATE: I totally forgot about our recent rebuildings of older songs! In addition to "Lightning Rod", we've also remade "One Last Hallelujah" as an ambient, mellow piece, "Shivering Sand" as a reggae-ska fest, and "So Cold" as a swingy, syncopated tune.
