Starboard Meets the Sound EP (2006)

self-released – read the lyrics to this EP
In my opinion, this stands as Red Jacket Mine’s first “real” record. Recorded mostly-live in the expansive East Wing of Emerald City Guitars in downtown Seattle, Washington with the Reverend Eric Daw at the helm, it’s roomy, atmospheric, tremolo-soaked, and a little dark, and notably features an early version of Hello, Old Cloud’s “22 Rose Petal Place.” Out of print, sadly, but feel free to sample the mp3s below for a taste!
