about

this is a collection of tracks I've been recording with my closest friends and collaborators over the last 5 years.

it is a little archive, a window into my extremely erratic, naive and DIY recording and artistic patterns.

Each song has a different story - made impulsively in a different country, in a different bedroom, with a different computer, microphone, or collaborator.

I have put my favourite parts of these fragments here together now, to show you what I love doing most, and give a nod of respect to these moments which I almost kept secret.

Track Name: daughter no more
my heart has been turned into stone
I used to go down to the sea for comfort
now it wont speak to me
and I wont go anymore
now it wont speak to me
and I wont go anymore

woo woo woo

my heart has been turned into sand
it used to lie flat across my palm
now it just falls to the ground
like water through a sieve
now it just falls to the ground
like water through a sieve

woo woo woo

my heart has been wasted away
pounded and pummled and beaten down
I don't know where to go home
and I'll be a daughter no more
I don't know where to go home
and I'll be a daughter no more

don't know where to go home, be a daughter no more, don't know where to go home
don't know where to go home, be a daughter no more, don't know where to go home
Track Name: in my hour
miss you, I'm gonna miss you
the way you danced with me
just like you understood me
though your ears could hardly hear me

miss you, I'm gonna miss you
the way you spoke with me
just like you never would do
in my hour of greatest need

in my hour, in my hour of greatest need
in my hour, in my hour of greatest need
you were not there

miss you...

wake me up
when you return
I'm hibernating in the earth
