Metropolitan: “Letterbox”

Metropolitan

After we recorded the majority of The Lines They Get Broken with Archie Moore at Omega Studios in Rockville, we had a few additional songs written that we thought would help round out the record. We rang Jason Caddell, our friend from the Dismemberment Plan, and before we knew it we were in his basement in DC laying down tracks for what would become “Letterbox.” Our luck continued when we asked another friend, Clark Sabine, to come in and see if he’d like to put down some additional guitar or keys. The fantastic key solo at the end of the tune is all Clark, and helped make this track even more memorable.
