INFO: Despite amassing a following, scene status, and praise from regional press right out of the gate, Orlando indie-rock band The Pauses released their debut album A Cautionary Tale after only about, oh, TWO YEARS of existence. The official excuse is something about wanting do to things "properly." So they saved money through a successful Kickstarter campaign (a marvel since their fans' bank accounts have a perfectly inverse relationship with their obvious wealth in taste) spurred by a cute handmade video (http://vimeo.com/10712285) and headed up to Baltimore to record this bad boy with the legendary J. Robbins (Jawbox, Burning Airlines), even enlisting three-quarters of the dude's own band. His wife too? Sure, why not.
