Album: 200 Million Thousand (2009)
  • This features a snippet from a song that was apparently recorded in France in 1860. Drummer Joe Bradley told Rolling Stone: "I think it's the first song ever recorded. Cole (Alexander) found it on the Internet, and he liked the 'woo-woo' sound."
  • Bradley told Stereogum that there's no particular significance to the album title. He explained: "Like 200 million thousand is how much our parents love us, or 200 million thousand is how many records we're going to sell 200 million thousand trees in the state of Oregon."
