The return of The Things of Youth. New songs and stuff coming in November. Jon Fee and friends may be getting long in the tooth and soft in the middle, but that only seems to make the musical musings of The Things of Youth that much better. Watch a teaser video with new songs, friends, family, and footage from time spent at Panoramic House, Stinson Beach, CA.
Exciting news! Seven new Identical Homes tracks are coming your way this summer! On August 7th to be exact. In true click-bait fashion, here are 3 AMAZING facts about this project:
- This album is completely instrumental. Why? Recording vocals is torture, and instrumental music is a new challenge.
- Many talented musicians are featured! Including old touring buddies Cory Grey, Eric Kuhn, Demetrius Antuna, Mathew Solberg, and usual collaborators Jake Krohn and Jon Fee.
- Some things these songs may inspire you to do:
-slip on leather driving gloves and drive a sports car too fast
-find an abandon warehouse to dance in/though while stopping in cat pose to breathe heavily
-run up a large set of steps with a hoodie on, then turn, face the city, and raise your arms in victory
You can hear the first track here:
Look forward to doing one or all of these things along with the full album on August 7th!
Thanks for reading
A happy new year to you! We have updates, yes, many updates, but we find that as we get older, things aren’t as urgent as they once were. So, we have tracks recorded for new albums from Shuteye Unison, Things Of Youth, and Identical Homes, all just sitting on hard drives for now. But once we decide to get off of our pretty little butts and do something about it, a plethora of new music will be released. I know what you are thinking, and I can assure you that we DO, in fact, know what a plethora is. Thank you for hanging in there with us!

The Panoramic House is not only a mecca of Northern California recording, it’s a literal stone castle that sits on a mountainside overlooking Stinson Beach. They have every mic, every classic piece of vintage gear you have ever heard of, and even a 100-foot long reverb tunnel built into the hillside. It’s kinda nuts, but we were lucky enough to get a full week there.
Between fancy BBQs, sunset gazing, and dips in the ocean we were actually able to get some recording done. Cory Grey (of so many musical projects that I can’t mention them all here) manned the helm as we aimlessly wandered through the basic tracks of 4 new Shuteye Unison songs.
Both releases will be coming out on Parks and Records very soon. Stay Tuned!
No one can match the genius of Roritor master marketer Cicsco when he conceives of this slogan for GLeeMONEX, but Shuteye Unison will be back in the studio this summer, doing their best. They will arrive at the secret hillside castle studio overlooking Stinson and make noise until something doesn’t sound terrible. The good news: we will have new songs for release this year! Here are some excited reactions we have received, all from SEU’s past collaborators:
You forget about Papi? – Remco Vander Heide
Aren’t I in that band? – Jon Latimer
Will Herman get cheese? – Schuyler Feekes
