Planes was recorded and mixed in the basement of Erik's home in Portland, Oregon over the last three years. Many of our songs evolve from relaxed, self-hypnotizing jams, but in contrast to the mellow abstractions of our first s/t album, Planes is filled with an angry compulsion to move on from past regrets.
Summer Ono is influenced by the Flaming Lips, Werner Herzog, Chi-Chi the board monkey, Sonic Youth, studio mold, American Music Club, Air, dirty portmanteaus, Jawbox, Taco del Mar, Radiohead and Sea and Cake.
