Over the years, his sounds have inhabited a specific intersection between intimacy and atmosphere through a maximalist mosaic of field recordings, sample-based textures, glitchy soundscapes and nocturnal pop songs. ... more

Track Name: Água Viva
say i am a camera
just open my shutter
capturing the present
with such a hallelujah
Track Name: Hope Floats
we contort ourselves
when fast forward fails
no change in pace

the world’s about to break
we dare not look away

float hope float
Track Name: Speedboat
deck to dock
chardonnay
ropes are taut
escape escape
clutter to cure
you must unmoor

i feel you deflate
from the waves
in your wake
the rush is slow
sister speedboat
look at you go

give yourself a gift
don’t give yourself away
Track Name: Need A Moment
stay in the same place for too long of a time
with a thousand ways to wear one state of mind
i run a mile a minute, i sweat through my shirt
i’m not in my body, baby, and i’ll make it work

every time you think i’m being selfish
all the walls i put up are enormous
i am singing the body erratic
(but go off call me overdramatic)
i need a moment with movement and motive
Track Name: Housekeeping
the palmer house
you held onto a key
from a previous stay we can’t afford
henry floats through the floors
and we down mini bottles

the conference room
where we always camp out
has a grand piano i sit and play
while blake and jessica sing
we evade the housekeeping

knock on all the doors
marked do not disturb
make a dash
become
the chicago cold
somewhere don’t the line
you will find your warmth
but i will not return

we’re knee-deep now in the outer boroughs
