Conversion Party

Um, google "conversion party." InterestingAwesome. Evidently the band didn't have any idea. Ain't nothing that stopped the five-piece from New London, CT. The group released the album More No Morein 2008. Band member Alex Waxman blogged the band's then history for the music blog Moistworks around the same time. The group relocated to and recorded its follow-up album in Brooklyn while playing periodically in New York City throughout 2010. The band documented the progress of the album by sharing rough mixes of the songs via a Tumblr site. The group began building attention particularly through participating in the 2010 CMJ Music Festival and being featured in the Fader. As of December 2010 the album was scheduled to be titled Lengths and slated for release in early 2011. Other namesconsidered for the album included Red, White, and Meat, White Slavery, and Chinchillas in the Mist. That was probably a joke. The album was produced by Sean Greenhalgh, the drummer for indie band Clap Your Hands Say Yeah! It was also mixed by Phil Palazzolo, who previously worked with New Pornographers, Ted Leo, Okkervil River and St. Vincent, and recorded at the cozy Seaside Lounge in the heart of Park Slope, Brooklyn.
