Basketball fever brings us Breathe Owl Breathe

on a night where basketball was a big theme on tv - i can't believe i actually watched the whole damn lebron thing, that's more attention that i've paid to the nba in one night than the last three years combined - anyways, this image seemed to fit for the evening

In a Lincoln Log cabin in deep rural Michigan live and work Micah Middaugh, Trevor Hobbs, and Andréa Moreno-Beals. This is Breathe Owl Breathe. 

A pocket history:
- Micah and Andréa met in a Dairy Queen parking lot. 
- Trevor and Micah's first day together was spent turning a party full of strangers into the set of an improvised VHS zombie movie. 
- Their cabin was built by Micah's grandparents last century. His grandfather was a radical preacher who traveled by dogsled.
- Andréa was born in Colombia.
- Trevor studies Geomorphology.
- Micah grew up in a Hexagon hut in the Jordan River Valley. He didn't speak till he was four.

The trio's new album, Magic Central, will be released on Hometapes on September 28, 2010. More than just a record, Breathe Owl Breathe have created a timeless aural cartogram of feeling, soul, skill, and story. You could have found it in the attic. It could have dropped from outer space.
