Tried to find all evidence of its existence on youtube recently. Then moved on to album reviews.

Almost our full set from Primavera is online

(all audio is crap, but sounds better if you use real speakers/get more low end/IE bass/IE me)

First Song:

“In the Beginning” (Written by Jeffrey Lewis, Kimya Dawson, Karl Blau, Jack Lewis and Anders Griffen)

2. Over the Moon

Not sure of the set order after that.

Oh and that Pitchfork Review:

http://pitchfork.com/reviews/albums/14106-the-bundles/

Personally I think this is one of the albums I’m most proud of playing and being a part of.

Recorded/Engineered and “Produced” by Karl Blau at Dub Narcotic, Olympia Washington. It was a dream come true to record there and release something on K records. I even got to draw the K shield on the back of the album.
