The Winter of Our Content 

Things have been pretty slow on the Transient Songs front but the album has had a really great press run. Check out all the new reviews over in the Reviews section

We also have the new album up for streaming on the site for free so grab it!

In other News we have a gig coming up at Slim's Last Chance on 11/11 with The Radio Nationals and Suitcase. This is sure to be a fun night of Rock n Roll at Slims (what feels like a little bit of Austin to me). 

In other news our dear bass player Dayna who played on our last two albums has moved up north to get away from the Seattle Crush and is no longer with the band. We wish Dayan well on her new farming endeavors and Liz Herrin from Seattle stalwarts The Purrs will be filing in on bass for the show. Look for a small EP project with Dayna early next year. What is next for the band? Who knows, enjoy the new album and stay tuned! - Jon

Reviews, Review and Shows 

Hello Fellow Music Lovers. The reviews have been coming in strong and our album release show is scheduled for Friday July 28th at the Sunset in Seattle, WA. We hope you can make it out. I've also posted a new song below from the record called "Shoppin' for Coffins". Soon I'll post the entire album.

Here are a couple reviews and a new song:







A New Site, A New Album  

Hello All,

Welcome to the new home on the interwebs for Transient Songs. Now that we have a new album about to come out it's time to move of bandcamp and put up a site proper again. This album is a special one to me. Not only are they the best batch of songs I've ever written and recorded, I've been wholly present throughout the life of the songs. The players are familiar faces with Michael returning to Seattle after a three year run in Europe and a welcome new addition behind the kit of Mr. Craig Keller. Dayna Loeffler is back on the 4 string jazz bass again and it feels like we have really made a special album. It was a long journey getting here and I was going to record all of these songs myself at home and mix them at a studio but after the band took form I didn't want the "demos" i had recorded as the final product. We rehearsed them just enough to make them tight but there is an airiness and pulse that runs through them from being some what fresh to the band as a whole. Anyhow, I'm really happy this thing is complete and seeing the light of day. Don Farwell at Earwig was the best engineering and helping shape the songs and Chris Hanzsek as always is the best mastering dude around. The cover image is still a bit in flux but it will be a picture of Sakura Sutter and the story of the image is inside the lyrics of the album. It's a proud artifact for me and that's a fact. Here is a song from the new album called Stealing Company to keep you company.  - Jon
"She rose up from the sand, put her cigarette out in the sea/her eyes took the form of a butterfly and she floated by me" - Stealing Sand

3/31/2017 - We are playing at the Sunset Tavern Sunday with a cool lineup. Here is the stranger link. Come on out and hear some good sounds

3/14/2017 - Hello again folks. Well the time is here. After much lingering being idle and such we finally have the record wrapped up and packaged and ready to start our press run with the ever trusty Kaytea at XO. Scroll down to check out the title track. We have a couple shows coming up. We will be supporting Brandon M Krebs for his CD release show on April 2nd at The Sunset and have another show we are wrapping up details on at the Lo-Fi in May. More to come on that.
