about

This is either a short album or a long EP – whatever classification works for you, the listener.

Thanks to Ben Sinclair for inspiring music recommendations and also to Julia and Jamie for many, many dinners during a break from making music. And to everyone else I know for other, legitimate reasons that are not as relevant to this release.

Download includes a "thematically relevant" extended "promo video."

Written, arranged and mixed May 29 - June 8 2018.

RIP Jesse Weiss.

Track Name: Let's Start Again, Can't Start Again
Fire trolls the old cigar
while summer kids turn to vinegar
The wind's a reverse tuning fork
and the wine glass calls out to the cork

The boy, the will, imparts the trust
He says a spirit's in the dust
The one truth that's beyond all thought
The one catch that cannot be caught

Let's start again, can't start again
Let's start again, can't start again

Silence this end, silence in the end
Silence this end, silence in the end
Silence this end, silence in the end
Silence this end, silence in the end

Silencing this ending: silence in the end
Silencing this ending: silence in the end

Can't start again, let's start again
Can't start again, let's start again

The water is a thoughtless guest
It gives no break and the land's the rest
The sky deceives as heaven's friend,
breathless at its never end

Our world's beyond, our words that know
the words we say are just a show
to make a stage, to make us act
beyond one truth, the only fact

Let's start again, can't start again
Let's start again, can't start again
Track Name: Do You Never?
Had one of those lives where I did everything right
I married the day and stayed in touch with the night
I'm not a child 'cause I know that nothing is mine
Caught myself a ticket and I paid 'til I felt fined

Calculators in the breeze
The wind was counting on me
Then I disappeared completely
The final form of a bonsai tree
