blanche blanche blanche is sarah smith & zach phillips from new hampshire, lame men able to tread
that turned into a band called "easy street" with luke csehak and danny bissette
I (zach) was getting into recording songs on my own at the time on cassette multitrackers
this was in brattleboro, vermont, near vermont yankee power plant in vernon
eventually sarah moved to new york city.
then we stopped playing in the band in order to enjoy quieter moods

we started playing together in 2007 and recorded
2 albums and played shows as "sord"
we kept going and started to get results we liked
we recorded 7 triple blanche albums living in brattleboro
and eventually I did too and we spent a year & change playing as a big band
including these wonderful guys and we made "breaking mirrors," "hints to pilgrims"
after a break, in 2015 we got back to work. in 2016 the o.s.r. label concluded
and an album-in-progress petered out. we did one big brattleboro reunion show in brooklyn
and rested. then in 2017 we found a new way to work and spent 2 years sporadically working on "seashells" in short sessions.
my new group fievel is glauque also became an authorized blanche retailer.
2 retrospective shows in august 2019 sealed a certain deal and we cut a live album with a new band then.
"seashells" will be released in 2020 by reading group. look out for new bbb releases on feeding tube.
