Album Notes
Written by Steve Koester (Maplewood, Two Dark Birds, Punchdrunk) as a sonic and lyrical exploration of New York City in the first decade of the 21st Century, "Losers, Weepers" is the third album from the rock band Koester. The first two albums -- "Oh! Turpentine" and "The High Highs The Low Lows" released on Pitch-a-Tent Records -- received heavy college radio play and strong reviews. Koester the Rock Band spent the better part of the aughts touring the country and opening for compadres Sparklehorse, Nada Surf, Cracker, The Hold Steady, Crooked Finger and The Wrens.

The songs range from moog-driven space pop ("Twenty Three"), to fat guitar rock ("Brooklyn Eyes"), to West Coast wrecking crew arrangements ("Out of the Cradle"), to an album-closing epic ode to the city that refuses to sleep ("Losers, Weepers"). All of this ensconced in a sonic cocoon that will have you checking your watch frequently (What? 4:20 already?)

The album was recorded in Richmond VA at Sound of Music Studios in 2006 and produced by Alan Weatherhead (Sparklehorse, Hotel Lights). Alongside Koester and Weatherhead, the album features Tim Buckley (guitar, vocals), John Daniels (bass), and Miguel Urbiztondo (drums). Intended for release at the time, the record was shelved due to financial issues at the label. Now, over a decade later, the songs still sound fresh and are ready for their moment.

So, pull up the lazy-boy, slip on the phones, fire up the Graffix and enjoy this little lost gem.
