Jon Felton I am so happy about this recording. Nothing can match the magic of hearing these songs live, and being called to join into them, but this recording is enough. In bemya's choice and delivery of words there is a joy, sensitivity, and a sort of generosity and forgiveness I associate with grace. These come together as a sweet strength, a refreshing kind of masculinity. The songs bring me joy, and seem suited to his gnomish work.

recorded at lookout arts quarry,
during a two week artist residency,
under a taurus sun,
in the cradle of the full moon,
by the use of orphan robots.
all samples are sounds of the quarry.

best listened to in headphones*
or with a thick woofer,

* these tracks are lofi, unmastered, and get fatly heavy from pretty skinny at the drop of a beat.
