acknowledge the past know every detail examine and weigh consider and contemplate make peace forgive—remember learn—absorb—grow heavy blood heavy blood
in and out clear space in and out let thoughts come and go listen—flow concious breath in—focus hold—hold out release
Enter Calm 01:37
melody vibration around you be still don't think don't think
close eyes enter space enter mind endless and almost empty dark and floating imagine no limits expanse outward—inward infinitely
everything an expression of the universe you are not separate you are exactly as meant to be small and alive shared—affecting vastness daunting—comforting
all energy nothing—everything matters
Give 07:13
give in give love give a fuck give thanks give energy give yourself give everything
forget your thoughts your ego be free


For music lovers in strange times, may you be resilient and warm.

For my wife Nina and our first child (due soon), may you be happy and healthy.

For my late father, Peter Madden. A kind man who truly loved music, family, and the world.

Recorded mostly in 2019 on dad's Stratocaster in standard tuning. This is not a heavy album; for those seeking doom check out my new band deadendthoughts.bandcamp.com

Mastered with extended dynamic range, please adjust your volume up a notch when listening. Download includes artwork booklet and art per track.
