My Arms 03:35
Paid my Paid my bills today I am a free man until the 15th Baby, where you going to? Take me with you. We stood in a wheat field Pissing in the wind, yeah Omaha is lovely But my arms are empty My arms
My Only One 01:28
All the things you're scared of are what make me smile My only one, the singing sun Real love makes you crazy My only one, the singing son
My sweet drummer tells me "play it louder" You're mine, clementine Two black rings above your knee My mother tells me "there's no danger" My father tells me "there's no answer" You're mine, clementine Two black rings above your knee


Unreleased tracks, outtakes, and ephemera from the prolonged and varied Bowl of Plums sessions, which occurred all over the USA in 2015. I blew off a thin layer of dust from these tracks and shined 'em up real nice for ya.

It's kinda like the other side of summer, borrowing happiness from one season of life to withstand the challenges of another. When you finish the plum all you got left is the juice on your chin and the pit on the plate, but that pit can grow a tree. There's no danger. There's no answer. May you feel as free as we did driving to Omaha in 2014, pissing in the wind on the side of the road.
