Del Water Gap’s S. Holden Jaffe began the project on his own, alone in upstate NY before making his way down to NYC. There, he met his future and current bandmates (bassist William Evans and drummer Charles Schlinkert) in the blackout following Hurricane Sandy.

Del Water Gap’s “Cut The Rope” / “Lamplight” 7” is available now.
