    At long last! The Primal Kitchen Film EP is here, and I have never wanted to share anything this badly. So many dear friends and talented people who I hardly knew offered vast amounts of their time and mind and heart to make this real; I'm so grateful and excited. The ever talented and lovely Christine Jozitis and Janelle Nickou have done a stunning job on the album artwork and layout, and, I've been told that the sounds coming off of this thing ain't so bad either. Here, there be nothing more or less than cautionary tales and soulful sass sent post haste in silver-disc form, to be held in your hands, and consumed by your ears.

lyrics

your bathtub's halfway out the window
the garden ivy's mostly in
mosaic mirrors of mauve and indigo
hide the shattered beams within

dug through the trenches in your garden
finding remnants of past victims
broken violins and baubles
no archivist's hands could fix them

electric files of light and moments caught
a hostage war within your home
it's getting quiet in your hallway
and still you say you're not alone

shoeboxes brim with primal kitsch and film
are for the highest to abuse
taupe walls of sacred art, torn chicken wire
loose lightbulbs fight for proof
of how the night will lie, inverted colors compromise
your health, a joke, for what's in store
'cause you're not even living anymore

tenant soldiers left for war again
you've been deserted by your kin
you wanted cornerstone utopia
only the worthy are let in

dug through the trenches in your garden
finding remnants of past victims
broken violins and baubles
no archivist's hands could fix them
