It has been quite a while since our last post, but we have been very busy @ the T&FR HQ. Mabel just turned 7 on Sept 19th & Oskar turned 4 on Sept 23rd. They got a lot of great presents and birthday greetings and they really appreciated it all. We r also putting the finishing touches on some new material. Lastly, Dustin has been a bit of a slacker but promises 2 try harder in the future.
Untitled (Unicorn #2) originally appeared (hidden track style) on the Louisville Is For Lovers 2008 compilation put out each year by John King & co. We were totally excited 2 b featured with such heroes/comrades such as Bonnie 'Prince' Billy, One Small Step, The Gallery Singers and many other great Louisville bands. The Backseat Sandbar review can be found here. FYI, This is the second song 2 feature our friend Doug Whitaker playing keyboard (incidentally the first was 'The Last Unicorn' from Stone Cold Treasures).
Hey 2nite was recorded early on 4 a CCR tribute compilation which was never released. We still love the song and that is Mabel on harmonica (if u listen carefully u can hear Oskar cheering her on in the background).

Racecars b/w Monster Truck Power is the highly anticipated (srsly, rite?) first release from Juicebox Hero. Ever since recording these, we here at T&FR HQ have been made 2 listen 2 them repeatedly by Oskar himself. We r so lucky. We hope u like them as much as he does.

While Mabel and Snow Monster! have their feet firmly planted in the ground of unicorns and keytars, her three year old brother Oskar takes his new side project into the uncharted territory of garbage trucks and hair bands. Never one to let his older sister have all of the glory, Oskar really brings everything 2 the table with this new endeavour. Be sure 2 check out the Myspace page 4 all relevant info and new songs.
