Eye of the Wave Ephemeral Collage

With a love of retro film and culture that's well known, we've recently created a video for our surfing homage Eye of the Wave showcasing over 300 shots of found footage from almost a century of summers at the shore.  A mashup of 1960's vintage beach movies, public domain ephemeral film and creative commons footage, it has everything from bikini babes and body builders to sun kissed surfers and sandy strolls. 

Eye of the Wave first appeared on our album dedicated to Southern California roadtrips and roadside attractions, Big California.


Mercy Redefined Remix Release

Fellow indie recording artist Sun Rust (aka Andrew Weiler) brings his decidedly analog approach to this remix of A Prayer for Mercy from our World That Wasn't album. By chopping and looping the original stems, adding a new bassline, and inverting the background and foreground elements, Weiler manages to create a supremely laid back mix that is simultaneously haunting, groovy and uplifting.


On the heels of World That Wasn't Raygun Ballet returns from the world of tomorrow and charts a course for the land of dreamers. Guided by luminaries both great and small, Raygun Ballet's Big California is an American walkabout; a groovy and ethereal pilgrimage through a land of giant donuts, muffler men and magic kingdoms. And in the shadows of old Route 66 gas stations and the faded glory of shuttered Salton Sea motels, Big California still finds gold in the Golden State.

While words like "epic" are cliché these days, there is something decidedly cerebral and refreshing about the album mix; something that moves your head as well as your feet. Restrained guitars fit snugly in a warm bed of organ swells, string pads and percolating sequencers. The minimalistic leads build to crashing power chords and soaring cinematic crescendos. Rhythmic pulsing bass lines keep it all grounded and grooving. So, while the word "epic" might be overused, "Big California" is certainly a big album for a big land.
