The Eaton was sunk in 1969. The same year Gary Usher and my Eau Claire hometown hero, Curt Boettcher made their last record as Sagittarius; the immersive, sunshiny, Moog-strewn, hippie nadir ‘The Blue Marble.’ I also found an orchid outside Eaton, WI last year. It was all on a wavelength. Somehow it all made sense. Orchid Eaton is a Minneapolis/Eau Claire basement pop amalgamation of Matt Leavitt (EMOT, Moon & Pollution) & Brian Moen (Peter Wolf Crier, Laarks, Shouting Matches). Two dads who revere earth-toned vibe, semi-working gear, & creative candor.
