The band was formed in 1999 by songwriter Dylan Metrano and released an album How to be Timeless Tonight in late 1999 on the band's own label. At that stage, Metrano was the only member of the band and performed concerts solo. In 2000, a single "I Keep My Misfortune" was released on Redwood Records.

He recruited the other members before the group released its first album on Kimchee Records Blessed Are the Trials We Will Find. It developed and performed a live soundtrack for the classic German silent film Nosferatu in 2003 and performed it in the Boston area. In 2004, Tiger Saw composed a soundtrack for a forthcoming film of the Andre Dubus story Voices from the Moon.

The band also released its second album Gimme Danger/Gimme Sweetness in the first half of 2004. This album features Jason Anderson on several tracks as well as Mark Gartman, a collaborator of Low on steel guitar, James Reynolds Jr of Milkweed on banjo and Colin Rhinesmith of Skating Club on organ and bass. The band also contributed a track to a tribute album to Will Oldham.

The band has toured extensively since its formation playing with Vanessa Carlton, Songs: Ohia, Ida, Edith Frost, Dub Narcotic Sound System, The Microphones, Mary Lou Lord, Scout Niblett, Castanets and others. In 2005, the band performed at North East Sticks Together.
