Watch the video for Sun Chasers here:

4 song e.p. recorded in the depth of a particularly rainy season in Portland, OR during Jason's official exorcism.

If you buy the highest quality link, you get access to all download possibilities including 24 bit at 96 big bubba files. You'll want a pono player for that and start collecting that level of quality audio. It will make listening to music that much more fun. More info in every way!

These Beach towels are rad but we have to sell them (all 50) @ $40 but that gets you a lifer, quality light pink with teal and sun yellow text Helvetia BEACH TOWEL. This gets you a code for a free download of all the file types, a Helvetia pic book (sam changing tires, and other appropriate snap shots sitting in J's computer). Then YOU GET A HAND SCREENED 7" VINYL OF THESE 4 SONGS (by September 22).
You want a free download of our elusive "Nothing but Ringo" album? The one J recorded at a rehearsal space in Boise, after BTS practices, on a dictaphone.No , it was an i-phone app and then he scorched it onto his cassette 4-track (which made it sound even worse (but to some ears, better than ok)
Buy Sun Chasers e.p and you a one time download of that little rotten potato (rotten as in hecka lo-fi) That album isn't available anywhere else because it got benched. Forever, except for the next month, for this pathetic Sun Chasers campaign. You guys don't like this stuff?? That is a direct reflection and proof that you have lost your sense of smell. You should get that checked out. Seriously

This is a guarantee. You buy a beach towel, all i just mentioned (plus the weekly 1 minute preview of new album. That's 10 minutes of ten of the best songs we have done. Come on it!
