The Future Will Destroy You.

Out today on Vanguard Records - Viva Voce's 'The Future Will Destroy You.' I'm so proud of Kevin & Anita Robinson; having been a fan of the band for a long time now, it is an honor to work with them - and worked, we have. Thank you Seth, Stephen, Jena, Lucy, Lauren, Stephanie, Tricia, Ayappa, and SO MANY MORE folks who made this album possible. A quick outtake fr[...]

It's going to be good. Hard to believe with that schedule that they had extensive amounts of time to go record shopping & make runs to Dickie Jo's. It was done so q[...]
