The first 7" includes Yeats and Judgmental. Yeats was inspired by the poem When you are old by William Butler Yeats. Judgmental was a first of many lessons in theory - to write, you must have a genuine body, it must have sincere energy, and it must have a spiritual purpose.
The 2nd 7" features live recordings. The first side, False Loves, was recorded at Pioneer Works in Brooklyn, NY in collaboration with visual artist Serra Victoria Bothwell Fels. The 2nd, Wolves, was recorded at The Aquarium Gallery in New Orleans, LA in collaboration with multi-instrumentalist Ben Varian.
The 3rd 7" is a collection of lost ideas that were never fully realized. Melody was from a soundtrack I recorded for performance artist Tameka Norris' film How She Got Good. I've got a feeling was a recording where i played drums and sang along to a skipping Mamas & Papas album. Pictures and The Center of You were from early sound experiments with an EMS VCS3 and some other gear I had access to while living in MIami, FL.

When you are old and grey and full of sleep,
And nodding by the fire, take down this book,
And slowly read, and dream of the soft look
Your eyes had once, and of their shadows deep;
How many loved your moments of glad grace,
And loved your beauty with love false or true,
But one man loved the pilgrim soul in you,
And loved the sorrows of your changing face;
And bending down beside the glowing bars,
Murmur, a little sadly, how Love fled
And paced upon the mountains overhead
And hid his face amid a crowd of stars.
Track Name: Judgmental
Never say anything (judgmental)
never do anything (judgmental)
constant reminders of who I am and what I can
let's keep it simple, no plans, stay off track
but I'm loosing focus of who I am and what I can
so let's keep it civil, you watch mine and I'll watch yours
Track Name: False Loves // Live @ Pioneer Works
inside the sound grows
without my mind slows
to hell with my love, my love ain't so bright
fever dreams and blind drives
silent nights reflecting old lives
reflecting old lies
to hell with my heart, my heart ain't so bright
Track Name: Wolves // Live with Ben Varian
Out the house, it's a new dawn
hummingbird, but not for long
cause I'm a wolf
The closing of another chapter
the laughter, and all the smiling faces
and I want to say something honest
but honestly honesty ain't what it used to be
cause you're all wolves in wolves clothing
moving in and out, and all around
falling helplessly to the ground
don't we have promises to keep
up to our eyes i think
down but not out, twist but no shout
Track Name: Melody & I've Got A Feeling
I've got a feeling that I'm wasting time on you.
I've got a feeling that you've been stealing all the love I thought I was giving to you.
Baby it's true...
