    These were the first recordings where we set out to present ourselves as a duo, made at home and eventually released on the UK-based Great Pop Supplement label ahead of our 2015 shows in Europe. Thank you, Dom!

    These are the last copies: cherry-red 7-inch vinyl wrapped in a gorgeous sleeve featuring some of Mike's photos of Southwest Virginia landscapes -- taken just down the road from Poplar Hollow, actually (and one used as a top border right here on this site).
