Taking on full production and recording of their music, the EP Ailanthus Altissima was released in January 2004 on DC indie label Hackshop Records and distributed through Dischord Direct. Immediately following a U.S. tour of standard venues, art openings, live radio shows and burned-out punk rock basements, 302 began work on their second release, Even Calls.
Through a musical co-conspirator, one Gel-Sol, this new work was brought to the attention of Nottingham, UKʼs collectorsʼ label, Emit Records. Emit immediately signed the group, releasing Even Calls in May of 2005 and providing world-wide distribution through Arabesque and the iTunes music store under the title 302Acid0005. This in turn has led to critical acclaim in international publications and performances throughout the US, Canada, and Europe—featuring a coveted spot at the Big Chill festival in England.
In addition to two releases and a hectic touring schedule, 302 has created musical compositions for special releases by the Wire magazine, the Decatur Blue Artists Collective, and Italian music magazines Losing Today and Trax .
Working out of studios in Washington DC and Seattle WA, the group is currently recording new material for upcoming releases. These composition-rich studio recordings lend themselves to exciting heavily improvised live audio/visual performances. The varied styles of music they explore has allowed 302 the privilege to perform with an incredibly wide array of musicians from different stylistic backgrounds.
