The End has an intent focus on amplified instrumentation that you'd expect to hear from a noisy group of garage rockers, except here the music is layered with melodies and hooks that could incite a group of indie kids and hipsters to dance across the dirty floor of any venue in town. Recorded in the fall of 2006 in a friend's basement studio, the majority of the work involved in producing the album was done by band members Micky Alfano (bass guitar), Katelyn Farstad (drums), Mark Ritsema (guitar) and Chris Farstad (guitar, lead vocals.) This is their debut album from Afternoon Records, and you can hear a few tracks from it below.
