They’re Heading West’s first record will be released after the summer. To say it’s been in the works for four years is not a big overstatement. That’s how long it took to put on thirty shows in Lisbon, collaborating with as many guests, and two tours in North America. To choose songs they had previously released with their other bands and reinvent them. To rehearse, alone and with each guest for the monthly sessions they hold in Lisbon (now at casa Independente, before that at Barraca) finding the right way to play the songs to share live. To record in Washington State, in Anacortes, with Nicholas Wilbur at The Unknown (Mount Eerie’s studio) and back home in Lisbon, with Eduardo Vinhas, at 15-A.
