"Might Get It Right" has been over a year in the making, what with Matt becoming a dad, Mark's wife going back to school, and Nate finishing up his Ph.D. and searching for an engineering job. It was, again, recorded by us, and mixed/mastered by Jake Johnson at Paradyme Studios in Madison. It's super slick, generally very concise, with nicer-than-ever harmonies, memorable hooks, and earthy, sometimes caustic lyrics.
