Spokane, Washington natives the Globes (Walters Ourada, Musselwhite and McCotter) formed in their teenage years, spending afternoons in their sleepy city collaboratively dissecting and interpreting the fundamentals of songwriting, experimentation and craft while forging together their musical inspirations to create a singular and precocious sound based on the traditional guitar, bass, drum lineup. Somewhere between day jobs and school in Seattle, the Globes recorded an eponymous E.P. in early 2008 with engineer Jonathan Warman (Mt. St. Helens Vietnam Band). The Globes spent the fall of 2009 writing and recording new music with veteran producer John Goodmanson (Blonde Redhead, Death Cab for Cutie, Unwound), resulting in the “Sinter Songs” EP.
