Their debut album, "Exploding Teenage Body Part", was released in January of 2005. The following summer they co-headlined a tour with fellow Los Angeles shoegazers Helen Stellar with dates in San Francisco, Seattle & Boise.
In April of 2007, the band released their second album "Machines At Night" showcasing a much more refined and confident sound. The album has already heralded praise from critics and fans alike as one of the best albums of the year.
