    label: Absolutely Kosher

    ARMS DOWN IS A UNIQUE, POWERFUL AND EMOTIONALLY RESONANT RECORD. GET HIM EAT HIM SETTLED DOWN IN JULY OF 2006 TO BEGIN. CO-PRODUCED BY JASON CADDELL, THE ALBUM WAS RECORDED OVER MULTIPLE SESSIONS AT BROOKLYN'S STUDIO G, DC'S FAMOUS INNER EAR STUDIO, AND AT THE HOMES OF BOTH THE WRENS' CHARLES BISSELL AND GET HIM EAT HIM'S MATT LEMAY. THE RESULT IS A RICH, MULTI-LAYERED ALBUM COMPRISED OF THE PERFECT MIXTURE OF SYNTHETIC AND ORGANIC SOUND. SOME OF THE ALBUM'S MOST STRIKING MOMENTS COME THROUGH THANKS TO COLLABORATIONS WITH OTHER ARTISTS, INCLUDING ZACH CONDON AND VETERAN CELLIST AMY DOMINGUES. BUT AT ITS BEAUTIFUL, WEIRD CORE, ARMS DOWN IS ALL ABOUT THE DEDICATION AND OBSESSION OF THE MEMBERS OF GET HIM EAT HIM. THE SOUNDS AND IDEAS HERE ARE TRULY REPRESENTATIVE OF A GROUP OF PEOPLE STEEPED IN THE IPOD AGE; CONSTANTLY IMMERSED IN TOURING, PLAYING TOGETHER, AND LETTING THE DIVERSE IDEAS OF TED LEO, AL GREEN, BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN, CHAVEZ, AND MOUSE ON MARS STREAM THROUGH THEIR CONSCIOUSNESS AND FLOW INTO PLACE ON THEIR OWN ALBUM.
