During the summer of 2008, I was living in a house near my college campus with a vegan, an artist, and an Alaskan. I was working two IT jobs, and I had a lot of feelings. My sister had just moved to Portland from our hometown outside Boston, and she was playing her cello at open mics all around the city. As everyone's uncle often says, there is always room for cello--and that is more true in Portland than anywhere else.
Aubrey encouraged me to set my feelings to music, and I did. Over the next couple years, I encountered a terrible British guy, I broke up with a poet, and I fell in love, finally, over a game of Dungeons and Dragons... And out of those songs The Doubleclicks was born.
We have toured, made CDs, and done some of those "actual band" things like making music videos and taking photos of ourselves in a field. And in your hand is another one of those "actual band" things: we wrote new songs, some nerdy, some funny, and some (gasp) about feelings, and we set them to music. Music: With A Full Band!
With great sound comes great responsibility, and we have to thank the awesome producer, musicians, engineers and others who made this album possible and patiently dealt with We Internet Musicians and Our Weird Needs. We also would like to thank Mom Doubleclick (aka Mamaclick) for hosting and feeding all of us. Mamaclick makes wonderful chocolate cake, you guys. It's delicious.
We also want to sincerely thank you: the listeners, the concert hosts, the Internet friends & the collaborators for being such a huge and important part of the Doubleclicks project.
We will see you on the Internet!!
