    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).

    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.

lyrics

Cold winter days, bless my hands that stay under the hot water too long. Birds’ shadow bent around the shadow of my movement around the room in this place. Gold still touches us. Fires burn, and walls heat up. A crawlspace for your love. A windbreak to keep the sticks and mud safe from secret desert dry breaking earth and setting sun. Winter cold, up through the floor into our soles, out through our breathing mouths that keep the sun from coming out and on.
