kiss me here. In this song you have kissed me, you've held me down and made me give and colored me red, like your anger, green, like remember when oh the silence in the car I wasn't thinking I wasn't thinking I wasn't thinking tell me when it's over tell me when it's over tell me when it's over tell me when it's over morning and a warning and a wager your sometime need is split in two and the mortar sits still in the vortex of anger not over, when will it kill us all I wasn't thinking I wasn't thinking I wasn't thinking tell me when it's over tell me when it's over tell me when it's over tell me when it's over and I wasn't thinking I wasn't thinking I wasn't thinking tell me when it's over tell me when it's over tell me when it's over tell me when it's over over me over me over me over me and under me howling, the valley thundering I would pass through you if you asked me to silent head, heavy and resting rest for the ending is rolled up in my tongue I wasn't thinking I wasn't thinking I wasn't thinking tell me when it's over tell me when it's over tell me when it's over tell me when it's over

Sister Night I’ve struggled Under my silence, my song I’ve forgotten it all But Sister Night, bear me to the dawn Bear all that I owe Silver and Gold It is a hardcore climb Out of the dark sometimes Beyond to see where you are And see it alone In this light Shadows drawn long If I squint in the glow I can almost see home But in this life All the suns of dawn Are singing along Oh little one It is a hardcore climb Out of the dark Sometimes It calls to you every hour To see who you are It is a hard cold climb Out of your life Sometimes And it calls to you every hour To be who you are And be it alone Sister night, I’ve struggled Under my silence, my song I’ve forgotten it all

about

On Pigeonheart's 5th anniversary:

Released 5 years ago, this month, Pigeonheart remains an expression of unrefined antagonistic glee, a bundle of curious determination, and a bold thing. I (DM here) wanted to thank you all for embracing these songs, for dancing to them, for covering them, singing along with them, for carrying them with you when you travel, for the purest heart of the album is it's need to confront, be confronted. To see and be seen. One unfulfilled goal I had with this album was to release a series of proper singles, like we did in the 90's, CD singles in slimcases with collectible b-sides, remixes and alternate versions (do you remember finding that rare gem at Circuit City of all places, or was it in the bargain bin at Media Play? that single with the japanese bonus track and the singer in that song becomes a kind of pen pal because it seems like NO ONE else knows about that one song?? and it's your FAVORITE thing, written JUST for you. Well I do. I remember it. I think about it a lot.) So in celebration of Pigeonheart's 5th year, we're releasing 2 digital double singles, a pair of 2 track releases to round out the lot.

The first, High Tower / Imperial Leather, includes 2 songs written and recorded during the Pigeonheart sessions: 1) a piece of high pageantry prances between melancholy of an English type and melancholy of a Carribean kind, and 2) an existential A Capella comedy slash historical body horror. Both produced by Ben Hillier.

The second, My Impatience / Cormorant, pairs early versions of two of Pigeonheart's best loved songs: 1) My Impatience reimagined as an orchestral folk number, complete with backup singers and a string ensemble, and 2) Cormorant, in an early iteration with entirely different lyrics and production, a kind of more radio-friendly approach on Pigeonheart's thesis statement.

The heart of the record remains on its sleeve (it's a record about ME) but I hope these 4 songs provide new inroads to the collection. As always, thank you for listening! And thank you for reaching out when you do, for sharing your notes and explorations with me. They mean a lot! Sometimes they can make keeping on just that much easier.

X's and O's
