about

Vinyl edition arrives with enclosed poster insert.

Here we illuminate sorrow, grief, loss, and how losing one integral to our sense of place in the world expels us from the houses of confidence, confuses the mind, propels our hearts through places of knives, anger, nostalgia, fondness, flagellation, acute pain, smoldering anxiety, sunken affect, tension, blankness, bliss, relief, in no predictable or necessary order.

Rituals and traditions cannot offer all that’s needed as time races on. How can we continue once we’ve lost the physical presence of one so cherished? We meet these moments sometimes with fullness, or in retreat, in terror or in calm acceptance. We may at one point refuse to befriend death…and yet embrace it as a confidant in another mood, each day both a whisper and a thousand hours, each night both meditation and curse.

These songs are meant as temples of mourning, of fire, of blood, of memories, built upon the loss of mothers, of grandmothers, of every past and future beloved.
