    These floppy, warm, loveable tees are no tease(s)! They will cuddle with you while you listen to our album or contemplate our "crush poster." Made in Albuquerque by Albuquerquans, you will feel cool in the summer and warm in the winter, and in the fall, fashionable, in the spring, careless and free. Comes in yellow (with heather ink), or heather (with yellow).

  • T-Shirt/Apparel

    That's right! How many bands out there sell dresses!? These ones are sleek and slinky, so be ready to draw some wandering eyes. All black with yellow ink. The fabric is delicate and light. Note that the length of the dress is provocatively short. Made locally in Albuquerque by a fine craftsman and gentle soul.

about

Based on a dream Christy had. One of the first songs she wrote when messing around with a multi-track recorder for an EP she made for a limited number of people. With Cactus Tractor we do it up with the whole business, the whole nine "yar!" Or so they say. On boats.

lyrics

Two ships on the horizon slips to the side, it takes time, I’m caught in nets with you. You cast your nets to the wizened west and throw wide, it takes time, I’m caught in nets with you. Give, give it away. Flex back before you break. Pull under towards, comfort if I go, towards. Two men sleep with their backs to the heat of the sun, and it’s one, more, day from shore. Give, give it away. Flex back before you break. Caught in nets with you.
