In many ways, these songs can be seen as compliments to Sky Picnic’s output, as all of these (minus one) were written during sessions for the Paint Me A Dream LP, but just don’t really fit in with that scene. Hence the solo EP, as I am a believer in no good song being left behind. Three-fourths of the songs are deeply rooted in psychedelic folk sounds, while the closing track comes from my flirtation with writing film music.
All of these were recorded solo in my studio (using only 4 tracks at most!), and feature acoustic guitar, sitar, tabla, Mellotron and vocals run through a Klemt Echolette. These are by no means meant to be “high fidelity.” The process was very therapeutic in many ways, and really just an exercise in writing and recording on my own. Leah worked her artwork magic as usual and did provide some guidance.
Enough babbling. Check it out. I’ve made it pay what you like, as it’s just about the music and the love. Do promise if you download it for free to spread the word about Sky Picnic!

Track Name: Time Must Have Stopped
Sage on the hill
Blurred noise filled the air like a mist

In evening sunrises and morning sunsets

Kaleidoscope’s flashes glow
Uneclipsed the moon

Peppermint smile forgives
Time burnt candle wick

Drift along the stream of time
Summon words that hypnotize
