Unrealized demos and ephemera from the making and the aftermath of BOWL OF PLUMS - - songs written just before falling asleep and recorded in my bedroom, recordings from various practice spaces in New York and Alaska, little jangle pop ditties banged out on a bootleg sampling keyboard. A certain sound of promise and a certain sound of loneliness.

This is the b-side to PLATE OF PITS, a collection of studio outtakes from the same sessions. You can get that over there ------>

To hear/buy BOWL OF PLUMS:

Special thanks to Ruination Record Co. for the dub and Johann Diedrich for the laser blasting.

Track Name: My Boyfriend
Climb into the mountain
Climb into the sea
Climb into the mountain
Climb into the sea-ea-ea-ea

My boyfriend - my boyfriend - my boyfriend
And my only one
Track Name: My Friends Wanna
My friends wanna
Sleep together
My friends wanna
Stay out all night
My friends wanna-a-a-a-a-a
Fill their arms up
Track Name: Try to be Kind
You have never seen this side of me
The angry one I try to hide
Could not sleep, scared of dreams
That you could not be mine
If I could, I'd swim to heaven
I know I could, I could

I am beautiful
I try to be kind
Put it out of my mind
Track Name: Slow
I was alone again
Sleeping deep but fitfully
You're not here to make me cry
You're not here at all

Track Name: My Own Ragged Heart
My own ragged heart
Tattered sails on a broken mast
My own ragged heart
A broken mast on a broken boat
My own tattered heart
A broken mast on a broken boat

My own heart - my own ragged heart.
