In April of 2010 Chris and his good friend (and Home Normal, Room40, Kranky, Carpark Records artist) Greg Davis, released 'Northern Songs'. The psychedlic pop album was a huge success, most notably in Japan where it was regarded as one of the albums of the year across record shops nationwide. It was even included in a book marking the history of 'alternative' music in the past 50 years in Japan, noting the relevance of Home Normal, the album, and artists themselves in the current field.
