Low Beam / Bio

The band formed after the dissolution of Seratonin with Charles James and Rich Martin joined by CJ's wife, Jaimee Weatherbee, and drummer Rich Freitas. The group released three eps and a vinyl 45 (as well as a limited edition live recording) over the course of several years to critical acclaim charting on college radio across the country and receiving national notice. Their music has been heralded for it's touches of Sonic Youth, Galaxie 500 and Yo La Tengo and for stirring boy-girl harmonies mixed with its shoe gaze intensity. Veteran producer Michael Deming (Silver Jews, Lilys, Pernice Brothers) took notice and the band retreated to the studio with him to develop reworkings of much of the back catalog and a few new gems for the the anthemic and stirring full-length debut Charge of the Light Brigade.
