Band released tour CD:

A collection of bits & pieces recorded from 2003-2005. Features acoustic home and studio recordings of songs about woodpiles, meadows, katrina's wrath, dredging and the griptape heart. A wide variety of sounds and moods. Everything from electronica on "Unter Unserem Himmel" to piano parlour romp on "Heavy with the Bass" and some full band performances as on "One Last Panoramic." Cover artwork compiled of photos of The Panama Canal construction in the 1920's.
