The Winterludes EP is a concept EP featuring six somber and sleety beats perfect for grey backdrop of Midwestern winter.

The film will be screened at the release party on March 4th at UFO Factory and available along with the EP on all digital platforms as well as limited edition DVDs for the first 50 guests through the door.
“A video collage comprised of imagery that reflects the darker tone and beauty of the album. Visuals depicting the near glacial pace time seems to move at through a bleak winter landscape. Not completely without hope though..seasons change. Shot over the winter months of 2016 – 2017 in Michigan.” – Donald Frith
The party will also feature all vinyl DJ sets by JMac (Beyond Physics) and Blair French (Fat Finger Cosmic) and a performance from us (Eddie Logix & Pig Pen) with some special guests and live performance visuals by The Dropout.
