Roy P Bradley Beautiful dark stripped down lofi construction with an added ZAP POW that appeals to my senses. I like a lot. Favorite track: line drawings.

about

Recorded at home in Amsterdam using an iphone, 2015-2016
Drums recorded at a private studio near Westerpark
Integrates recordings of everyday sounds: water kettle boiling, knitting needles clanking, squeaky doors opening/closing.

We needed to make these songs together.
We needed to fill this house that is not our own with music and to use the music as a filter--like curtains on a window or a polarized lens on a camera.

If we were to trace the provenance of these songs and words, they would originate much earlier than what only a few of you know as our present day reality. A reality that is too complex to explain and heavier than the usual proverbial elephant in the room. A reality that we have decided to keep vague, because it could too easily define us, shroud us if we let it.

We'd rather be defined by our willingness to create. The music, the photographs, the words. We continue on, day by day. Quietly, slowly, with integrity and purpose.

In truth, we could have always made these songs, but "could have" is not the same as "need to." And in this case, we needed to.
