We Are Jeneric

We Are Jeneric's CD, written and recorded in a month, is Hansel and Gretel; Stories from the Stove

We Are Jeneric is an indie pop duo from Altamont, NY. They say their latest CD "sounds like one month in an old funeral parlor, surrounded by melting candles inside old wine bottles, clocks that don't tell time and great big, giant mirrors taken from abandoned train stations."

We Are Jeneric wrote and recorded Hansel and Gretel; Stories from the Stove in a month. The project was part of the "Record Production Month" or "RPM Challenge," in which artists are given 28 days to produce a full-length album. The challenge was held in February.

We Are Jeneric is primarily the work of Jen O'Connor and Eric Krans. But they say "sometimes there are more, especially when the ghosts decide to play along. We Are Jeneric lives in a haunted house, but they're all related to Jen, so that's okay."

The featured track, "The Last Song Ever Written," was, in fact, the last song the group wrote for the challenge.
