In Omaha, Nebraska, being in a band did not require talent or skill or opportunity. Anyone could do it. Everyone should do it. All that it required was time and inspiration. With an early love of poetry and music, Neva Dinova evolved from a great reason to laugh and drink and rock in mom’s basement into a vehicle for storied perspectives. An art project.
The band was too dumb for some, and too dramatic for others, but over time it’s become clear: those that love this band do so for life. The songs have resonated with such endurance because they speak truth to the human conditions of love, longing, sadness, and anger. Listeners hear a reflection of their own hearts in the music. The band didn’t have any use for genre boundaries; Neva Dinova was always just Neva Dinova. Sometimes plainspoken, sometimes ornate, sometimes slow and spacey, sometimes loud, but always with a generosity of spirit and an empathetic curiosity. And an occasional joke thrown in with some reflective disrespect.
Even through extended periods of radio silence, longtime listeners continue to reach out with love and support, hoping for another installation in the musical journey. The band is pleased to share Demos and C-Sides, a selection of ten previously unheard tracks - their first release of new material in more than a dozen years.

Supermoon is a great project and the mix of Morgan and Jake’s voices work so well together. With folk rock and country elements i find myself humming these tunes all day. I am a huge fan of the clever lyrics and the hooks. It’s lovingly put together and Jake shines just as much Morgan. Especially on Prepared to Lose, the vulnerability is palpable but also so relatable. Jonathan London

Just saw them performing much of this album on their west coast tour. San Diego and Pioneertown dates. Didn’t know any of them lol. I’m all about their old shit but I like this. Playing it more and more. Appreciate the evolution of one of my favorite bands in the world since middle school! 🖤 Red

Really enjoying the remastering. This album is dear to my heart and life, and just remembering all that was going on so many years ago when this first hit the airwaves. Doing an A/B comparison to the original mastering is subtle, but appreciable. Vocals more distinct and forward, with better depth and microdetail to background music. Going back and forth track for track and this album is a great thing made better. ja_kub_sz
