So we’re hoping to get a new 7” out to all you nice people in the world (maybe even to some of you jerks as well). The key is going to be helping us out by pre-ordering a copy through kickstarter and getting some really cool bonuses for kicking in a bit extra.
if all goes well we should have a nice 7” piece of vinyl out to you by the end of the summer….if not, who know….global apocalypse maybe?
Thanks everyone for coming out for the premiere of our BITBY session last night! We had a lot of fun playing and the episode looks great thanks to Kyle, Dave and the gang over at BITBY. We’ll be playing next Sunday, January 22nd at Milkboy Philly with Low Roar (from Iceland!) and fellow locals Soporus. It’s sure to be a great night so please come out!
Our BITBY session will be showing up at bitby.org sometime early this week, so stay tuned!

Hey all, just a small announcement: We will no longer be playing the Adam Franklin show this Thursday at the North Star. In our stead will be our good friends Music For Headphones!!! Should be a great show. We will hopefully have more shows to announce soon.
Thanks everybody for coming out to Terri’s last night. And super thanks to Jonathan for inviting us out to play, it was a great time, and a great lil space! Now on to next week and the Adam Franklin show at the northstar, where we will see Jonathan again with New Speedway.
9/20 pairs the low fi indie rock aesthetic Cy Twombly with the blissful gazey sounds of Ports of Call. Ports of Call’s most recent record, Fractals, has been on regular rotation during Jonathan Mono’s Sunday Late-Night DJ sets since it came out. Both bands are pretty amazing, and seriously, what else are you doing on Tuesday?
thomas again takes to downtime with another cover, this time a mojave 3 song, there is another in the wings as well, but this was just a precious little cover. figured i was ok with it being in the world. enjoy.
hey people we need 19 more people to break 100 followers of twitter. I’m thinking if this friday everyone puts us as a person to follow maybe we put up a special something on this here page. maybe candy, or maybe an unreleased track….what will it be? who knows? only see if we break 100.
so we’re plugging along. new show May 24th at Kung Fu Necktie with Psychic Teens and Swimmers Ear. Show starts at 8 sharp, i think we’re playing around 930. an early show for all you old heads (like us). We also will be putting up some amazing shirts and totes designed by James Olstein (www.jamesolstein.com) for sale on our site. For now you can grab them at the May 24th show, but we will have them available to all online in the coming weeks. Beyond that we’re working on songs to follow up our newly released EP Fractals which you can get now from our bandcamp site, in philly at AKA records, Milkcrate, and soon other record stores in the area and of course at our shows.
Ports of Call - “Transparent Apparent” from Fractals
I really cannot remember how I discovered Ports of Call, but I really wish that I could so I was able to discover more bands like them. This is a great slow-burning track with excellent production values that really bring out their charms. They communicate how they feel without the need for obvious verses and choruses through this record.
