About the event

We Are The West began way out east in a shipping container on a sheep farm in Holland, then inside an abandoned convent in Brooklyn, before growing underground in a parking garage in Los Angeles where founders Brett Hool (voice, guitar) and John Kibler (upright bass, voice) host their renowned monthly concert series (“Feels like the wave of the future.” Los Angeles Magazine).  After a series of site-specific EPs, their soulful and intricately crafted debut LP The Golden Shore, and providing the soundtrack for the film 2 Hearts (#1 on Netflix), they've emerged into the warm sunlight with a brisk and immediate collection Only One Us, their finest work yet:

This record came together naturally and was delayed quite unnaturally.  Back when corona was just a beachy brew, we gathered the new songs we'd been working on in our garage shows and headed downtown to Whispering Pines.  Our main bubs Lord Huron kindly let us in, Ben Tolliday (LH, Hozier, Rick Rubin's Broken Record) set up his magical microphonic machines, and we set about recording them live.  Deep into overdubland, we hit the road, touring up the coast until Brett took a step to nowhere and broke the hell out of his leg after a gig.  The break hit the brakes on everything right until the whole world hit the brakes with the new corona.  With a fresh titanium tibia in the band and no gigs on the horizon, we started a radio show The Golden Hour on Malibu's KBU 99.1fm.  Kyle Mullarky (King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, Babe Rainbow, Little Wings, Allah-Las) invited us to his ranch to mix the songs, then turned us onto John Golden who mastered it.  Our first gigs back have been all acoustic affairs at the family farm in Malibu and new tunes are already growing alongside the crops.
