about

Album available on CD and vinyl on Thrill Jockey's website and all major and small retailers. Bonus tracks "I'm Kin Version" and "Captain of Dub" for limited Japanese edition on Plancha available on Itunes.

My fifth album, recorded in the spring and early summer of 2014 in San Sebastián, Spain. For the first time in my album-making I chose to restrict myself to a very limited number of instruments: treble viola da gamba, voice, and occasional percussion, to better explore the possibilities of a Jamaican-dub-era-influenced style of production, with a heavy emphasis on my Moogerfooger analog delay and digital emulations of spring reverb, tape delay and other echo-producing devices… I finger-picked my treble viola da gamba and used an Octaver pedal to generate bass lines, and fell in love head over heels with the sound. Coupled with the fact that this was the first time I recorded an album in the spring, this was undoubtedly my most fulfilling album-recording experience so far!

Track Name: I'm Kin
I’m kin to the broken Aztec cup
I’m kin to the golden ram from Iraq

I’m kin to Argos recognizing Ulysses
I’m kin to greyhounds hanging from the trees

I’m kin to two stones making fire
I’m kin to melted ice giving water

I’m kin to the rock that made me fall
I’m kin to what I tread on

I’m kin to two stones making fire
I’m kin to melted ice giving water

I’m – I’m
Kin
I’m kin
Track Name: This Hammer Breaks
This hammer breaks illusions
This hammer breaks

This dark light (This hammer breaks)
Makes me feel so alive (Illusions)

You never know what’s in a heart
Track Name: Lighthouse
I
In my lighthouse
Flashing my lights
Onto you

Lights on the ocean now
Lights
Track Name: Eclipse
There is a sun
There is a sun
That escapes me
The naked eye can’t see these things

Eclipse
Track Name: Captain of None
Do not let me go blind for I
Still want to learn how to see what’s
In front of my eyes without light
What’s inside of me - what’s inside
What’s inside
Inside of
Inside of

Do not let me go blind for I
Still want to learn how to see
What’s in front of my eyes
What’s inside of me
What’s inside what’s inside what’s inside what’s inside

Captain of nothing, captain of none
O I sleep but my heart is awake and listening
For I got lost inside a dream that left me
Captain of none and nothing

Captain of nothing, captain of none
Captain of none
