aPhotos from the T H E M A Y S balloon launch - February 26, 2014



On Saturday, February 18, we launched T H E M A Y S new record, Airspace, into the atmosphere! All the flash drives were sent skyward...Ok we only sent half due to the rising cost of helium, but somewhere out there on the firmament lay 6 flash drives in some state or other just waiting for one lucky and extremely curious human to find them. Hopefully they are still in the boxes, lovingly silk screened and hand made by the great Erik Otto , that give it all a bit of context.

Either way, it was a lot of ludicrous fun to do and here are some pictures from the event for the curious.

Not that we aren't committed to this novel release format but to broaden the audience scope we will be releasing the record digitally on March 18 accompanied by remixes from Borful Tang, Kemek, THEMAYS, Shortcircles and more!


aT H E M A Y S lift off on Saturday - February 12, 2014



This is the idea and the hope. To celebrate the latest release from T H E M A Y S , AIRSPACE, we are putting the album on to 12 flash drives that are going to be released into the atmosphere on Saturday via helium balloon at the summit of Tank Hill in San Francisco. Our fondest hope is that the album will catch a current high in the atmosphere and float off into the country somewhere and eventually come to ground. Some enterprising soul will let their curiosity overcome their vigilance and plug it into their computer and get the album. Having done that, they will then release the drive back into the atmosphere and the album will make its way across the country/ world. That is the hope.

This is what it sounds like:
