  • Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    12" Vinyl of forthcoming album, A Pebble of the Brook. The 180g, audiophile weight, record will be pressed from a mixture of leftover vinyl from other pressings in order to reduce waste. This means that the color of the disc won't be known until the pressing is complete (hence the random colors in the mockups).

    NOTE: Production on the vinyl is a little behind, so shipment isn't expected until the end of June.

lyrics

Oh the things that I have done
And the things that I keep doing
With the river I have run
Washed in waters that keep keeping me awake

Tiny wars and petty things I make

Now a willow in the sun
Golden light as I lay weeping
For the love that I have wronged
For the thought that came and carried me away

Ever troubled by the trouble I have made

Only cyclical or sickly?
does it trend towards the better?
Like st Francis of Assisi
Am I drawn towards the desert?

To build my hermitage from pieces
I collected from these letters
Trust the seer now in seeing that
The tongue will loose the water from the gate

And turn this empty valley to a lake

Then death & life like lovers will embrace

…mourning is mending / excuse my lamenting…
