Back in March, Rafter and whatever bandmates he could find (Chris Cory, Susanna Waiche, Ryan Severance, Future Rapper, and John Beeler) went into a borrowed studio to record some songs for the veritable Daytrotter, who has just posted them to their website. It’s now several months later, but the songs sound just as fresh. In fact, they’re so new that some of the tracks are from an album due out later this year! Others are from Music for Total Chickensand Daytrotter recorded all with amazing skill and sound quality.
