  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    The new album!! It's a lovely little cardboard number with a piece of round silver plastic inside that emits sweet sounding (even though digital) music when inserted into a laser equipped device.
    In other words it's a CD... with a fantastic sleeve by artist Jean-Baptiste Longuet with lyrics and liner notes to match.
    Oh...and then there's the music: written and recorded between Australia, France and the UK, these songs have been lovingly mixed (by Philippe Avril at the mythical Ferber Studios in Paris), mastered by Jim Demain at the equally mythical Yesmaster studios in Nashville USA.
    We humbly present the result of years of work involving many skilled hands.

    Includes unlimited streaming of I died of boredom & came back as me via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

  • Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    The new album!! It's a piece of top quality cardboard with a large circular (180g heavy) vinyl inside that emits sweet sounding (good old-fashioned) analogue music when tickled gently with a needle.
    In other words it's a record... with an absolutely fantastic sleeve by artist Jean-Baptiste Longuet, an inner sleeve with even more beautiful artwork plus photography by Geoff Pe. Full lyrics and liner notes included.
    Oh...and then there's the music: written and recorded between Australia, France and the UK, these songs have been lovingly mixed (by Philippe Avril at the mythical Ferber Studios in Paris), mastered (by Jim Demain at the equally mythical Yesmaster studios in Nashville USA) and finally painstakingly etched onto vinyl at Parélie Paris (what a beautifully crazy process...)
    We humbly present the result of years of work involving many skilled hands.

    Includes unlimited streaming of I died of boredom & came back as me via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

lyrics

Something this bright should explode

It's four and crawling
A magpie morning
You're waking up in glue
I'm not the cut-glass
I set myself up as
But I know a thing or two

Even though your heart is jumping
Living on the edge of something
is like sleeping in the road
You're a Roman candle fizzing
And every kid is taught that
something this bright will explode

The truth is hollow
And crows that follow
Are your singing telegram
They worship your frown
Their kettle drums drown
All sense of who you are

Even though your heart is jumping…

How I love you, how. How I love you, how…

This city swallowed
Belched and bellowed
you out into the world

Even though your heart is jumping...
