'Tis an ode to our friends in the Branch Collection. This song was written years before it was recorded, before we moved to Athens, and before we ever slapped a Branch Collection logo on the same thing that wore a Grey Milk logo.


We were a few years
late to the party
At least we have pictures
to remember
satellites and sanitariums

Here are a few lines
for the few times
that we sat and talked
to end up on the same page

For all of you in Athens
to Florida to New York
to Chicago
by way of Sylva
by way of Penn Yan and
the coast of Virginia

May your seasons transition softly
and may you never lose sight of enjoyment
through every suffocating summer
and every frigid winter

And when cicadas
screaming from the cages
of your doors awaken
you at 3 am
I hope you can remember
just how wonderful it is
just to be alive

Living the way that we do
doesn't make sense to most people
and it doesn't have to

Grey Milk Athens, Georgia

You are here... sort of.

We are natives of New England and currently base our operations out of Athens, GA.

We're part of Nobody's Favorite Records and The Branch Collection: two obscure, amorphous groups of folks who collectively pool our efforts of creativity- primarily those of the musical variety. These monikers give us the appearance of added legitimacy.

We are human.
