Bestiary

1.
Shake off your arrows snap your spears Cut new canyons with my tears Recite the litany of my sorrows My yesterdays drown out my tomorrows My memory is older than I am I remember dawns that I've never seen We all enter this world filthy No one exits it clean Shake the ground with my footsteps and you run from the tremors But you can't run forever Blow the trumpet of war to signal the start of the dance And to give you a sporting chance Past generations cry out for blood I cannot forget The sins sewn by your fathers You will reap before the sun sets

about

Apparently theming albums has become just become part of my process. I was already working on recording Apothecary when I realized I had written a couple of songs related to animals, and I got the idea to create Bestiary as a companion release. Where Apothecary leans heavily into the folk side of the “weird folk” label that I’ve given my music, Bestiary definitely wades a bit more into the weird side.

Lyrically, these songs also have a more defiant edge (three of the five songs concern revenge). Working by myself can be limiting (I’m not the best musician or producer), but I’ve tried to find ways to expand my sound and explore new avenues with my songwriting and production. Hopefully that comes through and these songs are as fun to listen to as they were to work on.
