    PURELY ELIZABETH Pleasing but salty. INSANE name. Too many seeds and ancient grains, would prefer higher oat ratio. Good on its own, weak as a cereal with milk. She really went to town. 7/10 Bear Nake...

    ARIES Palmaris longus is a long muscle of the anterior forearm. It extends from the distal humerus to the root of the hand, although it can be absent in 10% of people. We don’t really use it anymore, ...
  • Interior (demo)

    This is one of my oldest surviving demos, from 2009. I remember singing it in my mom’s house, it was very sunny and there was good energy around. The lyrics are from a Hart Crane poem. It is very simp...
  • Hood (demo)

    I recorded this a few summers ago. I tried to make a video for it but have decided the song is better on its own. The closest match I found was footage of a woman rolling around on the shore, doing a ...

    I recorded this at home for a commercial pitch, but they didn’t give me the money. I suppose the cover is a little deathbed-y, I was very serious that day, but i like how it turned out. In particular ...
