they walked hand and hand through the field he looked at her and she looked at him and they knew the wheat was tall and kept scratching their skin as they walked and he turned to her and he said he could tell her anything and she said she could tell him anything but they knew the field stretched far but they kept walking through it and the field left scratches as they moved but the sun kept them warm and he looked at her and then she looked at him and he knew he could tell her anything and she knew she could tell him anything but they already knew and the sun kept them warm

* "Expertly weaving together and rendering anti-compositional soundscapes so disorientingly and entrancingly rich in possibilities, that to listen, is to almost inevitably lose oneself in them." - Tiny Mix Tapes (3/29/17)

*** a bunch of electric guitars and efx pedals were used on this recording, as well as bass (sometimes played with a bow). there are occasional vocals - spoken, shouted, chanted, or screamed - all heavily processed via analogue and digital efx. the closest thing to percussion on this recording is a small piano suite and the sound of a door opening and closing ***

the songs on this 12" were initially intended for a full length that ended up being scrapped, but we still had a personal connection to these recordings. after tracking down the original stem files, making some minor tweaks, then mixing them and mastering them, we felt these three songs fit together and shared a common sonic thread.
