A track recorded during the Clawhammer sessions of 2013. It never made the album, but it certainly tried. Here it is for you now.


There was an unfamiliar quiet
When I first arrived
The building was old and in decline
Easy to get inside
You always valued being alone
Sometimes the strays came by
But this place never felt like home
I should've known you'd try

And I'm still
I'm still here

We never talked about the past
Although I wished to know
I wasn't drunk enough to ask
Easy to let things go
I don't believe in life's design
And I put no trust in fate
And if I controlled the hands of time
I'd plead for you to wait

And I'm still
I'm still here

And now who'd believe that you were a friend of mine
There's nothing but memories left behind
This ain't no way to be free

And I'm still here
I'm still here....

The music has a compelling and dynamic structure; they can be quietly dramatic, sweeping, disarming and melancholic. A sweet + sad undercurrent with enough groove to get your sway on.

They've supported Tiny Ruins, The Magic Numbers, Shovels & Rope, Anais Mitchell + Lawrence Arabia. New material in 2016.
