A mini-store filled with records and goods we didn't release (but love anyway).

Released by: Jade Tree

The debut album from Joan of Arc, a band formed by Tim Kinsella following the dissolution of Cap'n Jazz.

Tim's brother, Mike Kinsella, plays drums and guitar.

The first of several high-flying conceptual works to come from the Joan of Arc compound is an eminently eclectic affair - organic and electronic, ironic and earnest, familiar, yet wholly irregular. It's a balance that allows this Chicago-based group to walk on the fringe without being swallowed by it. You'll feasibly end up scratching your head as much as you wind up nodding it, but if you didn't, you'd probably be missing the point.
