Following the 1994 dissolution of indie pop cult faves Lync, singer/guitarist Sam Jayne formed the lo-fi solo project Love as Laughter, self-releasing a pair of cassettes (an eponymous effort and Clear Sky = Blue Dye) before issuing The Greks Bring Gifts on K Records in 1996. #1 U.S.A. followed in 1998, heralding the additions of guitarist Jessica Espeleta and ex-Lync drummer Dave Schneider; Destination 2000, Love as Laughter's Sub Pop debut, appeared a year later. After following it with a series of singles for K and another album for Sub Pop in 2005 (Laughter's Fifth), the band jumped to Epic for its next album, 2008's Holy.
