MINNEAPOLIS STAR TRIBUNE’S BEST LOCAL ALBUMS OF 2015 (SO FAR): “Heretofore more of a tender coffeehouse balladeer, the Duluth music scene mainstay plugged in and blew off a harbor’s worth of steam while recording her breakthrough collection...Fans of ’90s alt-rock darlings like Belly & Jen Trynin will immediately take to the rocky hooks of songs like “Candy” and “Heart’s Desire.” - Riemenschneider ... more

Track Name: Candy
don't make me cry
don't tell me why
'cause i want what i want when i want it
i want what i want when i want it

i want candy
i want money
i want my mommy
i want my daddy
i wanna be lazy
want things to be easy
i want my mommy
i want my daddy

don't tell me what to do
how could you be so cruel?
'cause i want what i want when i want it
i want what i want when i want it

i want candy
i want money
i want my mommy
i want my daddy
i wanna be lazy
want things to be easy
i want my mommy
i want my daddy
Track Name: Cheribum
cheribum's got all my love letters
she rescued the ones i took to the dump
all the little bits of sweet nothings
all the piranhas nibbling my heart
all the piranhas nibbling my heart

it's a start
oceans may part
the big book of love
writ on our hearts
words smear on the page
the passion the rage
the court and the spark
Track Name: Holy Bones
take your rings off
take your skin off
stand in your holy bones
up to your sacrum in snow

who'll believe you
who'll forgive you
when your closet breaks open with ghosts?
raucously holding a toast?
when your heart breaks loose from its shackles?

and all your brothers and sisters
sort through your worldly possessions
luggage tags on all of the chair legs
legacies written in ink
nailing down your life

take your rings off
take your skin off
stand in your holy bones
up to your sacrum in snow
Track Name: Heart's Desire
sun shines in from the window
waiting for take off
announcing your schemes

what if there was no weight
gravity's lifted
we're drifting in to space

and he says
you should be a doctor
i can see it in your eyes
oh to be my father's daughter
have i been living a lie?

all these years spent trying
all these years spent trying
all these years spent trying
winter's coming
better curl up in a blanket and cry

medicine for your sorrow
i've got medicine for your pain
an aching back
a nagging ache
a ragged jagged vein

and he says you should be a lawyer
i can hear it in your style
oh to be my heart's desire
have i been living a lie?
Track Name: Put Up
you say you're crazy
you say you're sorry
well i don't blame you
it's pretty hazy

it was a long night
until the crack of dawn
there were bright lights
there were sirens

all those nights of simple touch
convene to be a little much
you only hurt the ones you love
'cause they're the only ones who put up
put up with your shit

blood is thick
thicker than water
not as nice to sip
not as pure to swim in

all those nights of simple touch
convene to be a little much
you only hurt the ones you love
'cause they're the only ones who put up
put up with your shit
Track Name: Archaeology
the archaeology of our recycling
the glass bottles pile for weeks
the glass bottles pile for weeks

do you remember the dead guy ale night?
do you remember the stump jump cabernet night?

yet you say you get only the remaining pile of me
after i have spent all my other energy
you say you get only the remaining pile of me
after i have spent all my other energy
on something other than you

but the archaeology of our recycling
speaks a different truth to me
the glass bottles are piled for weeks

do you remember that bunny riesling?
and the guacamole and those dos equis?

yet you say you get only the remaining pile of me
after i have spent all my other energy
you say you get only the remaining pile of me
after i have spent all my other energy
on something other than you
Track Name: Veal
i will never see the sun
i will never see the sky
i'll stay in my cage forever

i'll never see the rain
i'll never see the grass
like a goose nailed to a board
becoming fois gras
fois gras
fois gras

what karma!
what did i do?
to deserve this?
look what i'm going through!

i'll never see the rain
or the rivers blue
and i will certainly never jump over the moon!
i'll never see the sky
or the ocean blue
and i will certainly never jump over the moon

i will never see the sun
i will never see the sky
i'll stay in my cage forever
Track Name: A Million Moths
don't hurt yourself
it's going bad
all the pain
you've ever had
wad it up
into a paper ball
there's a barrel
with a fire
where you can burn it all
burn it all

burn it off
you can sweat it out
a million moths
gather round your heart
burn it off
you can sweat it out
a million moths
gather round your heart
