"We recorded "On the Lam" during the sessions for our forthcoming LP, Keep It in the Dark, which were engineered by Colin Althaus at Earth Analog in June of 2014. It's a somewhat anomalous track, which didn't neatly fit into the album, and I'm glad we're getting to release it here. Elizabeth wrote it back to the late 1990s, when she and I were in Villacoula (with Victor Cortez on drums, who also deserves some songwriting credit). The song lived on after Villacoula--Elizabeth kept strumming it around the house, and Motes just started messing around with it at practice. We tweaked the earlier arrangement quite a bit, Matt Cohn added his unique rhythmic slant, and now it's fully a Motes song. We played it live at our second show in November 2011, and began sometimes closing our sets with it. After more than one of our Mike N Molly's sets, Soundman Bob put the Breeders on afterward. Maybe it does have kind of a Breeders vibe, or maybe Bob just likes the Breeders.

Rock over Urbana,
Matt Mitchell"
