In Their Words: "In late 2010, to commemorate the 10 year anniversary of the release of our first record Neither am I, we set out on an acoustic(ish) tour of North America and Europe. With guitars, piano and an iPod, it was a very different take on the songs than what has ended up on the records -- the three of us taking them back a few steps to how they were born in a lot of cases. Phil Hayes, our friend and sound engineer, recorded most of the gigs, taking the desk mix and a couple of ambient microphones in the room. He also took many photographs of the sky, us guys, buildings and food. This version of "Bad Skin Day" was recorded at a beautiful old church in Utrecht, Holland called Leeuwenbergh Kerk. From this bounty we've put together Field Recordings, 21 songs and photography from the road, and are very grateful to Phil for it." -- Lead Vocalist Paul Noonan
