about

This cassette/5 track release was lovingly crafted in Dawson City, YT by Dana Hart (Alex and Emma) and Max Sims. It was recorded in Robin's Room studio and the Beringia Theatre Company studio. The cassette is brought to you by Radish House Records and Soy Milk Records. All songs were written and recorded by Alex and Emma with additional guitar, vocals, and bass by Max Sims.

Thank you first and foremost to the incredible, talented, and patient Max Sims. This cassette is as much yours as it is mine. Thanks to Robin and Mathias for letting us use their space for recording and for their input, feedback, and encouragement. Thanks to Dan, Izzy, Jimmy, DCMF and Yukon College for letting us use your equipment. Thanks to Radish House Records for planting the seeds of this release and overseeing its execution. Thanks to my mom for calling me to check in, provide encouragement, and remind me to take care of myself. And thanks to all of the supporters of this project, you make it all worthwhile.

Oh, and thanks especially to the dishwashers.

Track Name: Emma
I can't get you out of my mind.
You know that it won't last.
I know that it won't last.

I just see your smile.
Can't we pretend that this will last?
And when we're done there will be something left?

I can't get you out of my mind.
Track Name: Paris (Tout Seul)
And I didn't want to go alone. I wanted a companion, I wanted to share experiences with someone. Even my brother would be good company; I know he would appreciate it, I know that he would have liked to join me.

But I wanted you to take pictures with. I wanted you to walk through museums with. I wanted you to share the best vegan food with. I wanted you to play body Tetris on the overnight bus to Paris.

And now I'm talking to strangers in a language I don't really know. And I'm wanting to invite them to places I don't want to visit alone.

And she says, "I should probably stop staring like this" and she says, "France is homophobic" and she says, "Non-gendered pronouns are hard to implement." She says "I think it's funny you have vegan sausage in your pocket."

But I wanted you to take pictures with. I wanted you to walk through museums with. I wanted you to share the best vegan food with. I wanted you to play body Tetris on the overnight bus to Paris.

And now I'm talking to strangers in a language I don't really know. And I'm wanting to invite them to places I don't want to visit alone.

But you probably already know. Yeah, you probably already know that I don't want to be here alone, tout seul.
Track Name: Riverside
We'll take a walk by the riverside and I'll reveal what's been on my mind. You probably won't be surprised by what I'm trying to say. I need to know all of the facts to make an informed decision, but even when you know what's best it doesn't mean that you'll listen.

And I, I shouldn't have kissed you. And I, I knew it from the moment I met you, but I just can't resist you. And now the damage is done.

These words overflow like the Wear when it rains and it makes this path harder to navigate. It's a cyclical process, one I just can't escape, where the words that I mean aren't the ones that I say.

And I, I shouldn't have kissed you. And I, I knew it from the moment I met you, but I just can't resist you. And now the damage is done.
Track Name: Dreams
She looked at me like she wanted to get to know me better. I didn't know her name, but I wanted to get a little closer. We talked for hours and eventually I went and kissed her. It was everything I thought it would be until she turned to me and said something I couldn't understand, but I knew it was the end.

Even in my sleep those I want just don't want me. Even in my dreams my love life continues to be unlucky.

This time I knew you in real life, you had been sleeping by my side, but every time I closed my eyes you were always kissing someone better. You could when we were apart, when I could hide my jealous heart. But you chose to take me out and I when I turned around you were kissing someone else.

Even in my sleep those I want just don't want me. Even in my dreams my love life continues to be unlucky.
Track Name: Colours
A colour for a lover, seems like a fair trade. I'm only counting down the days, for this all to cave, for you to call me up and say that you don't love me anymore.

The snow falls the heaviest on lonely days, sounds of winds and whistles blowing each way. Blurring my vision of a love far away, despite the efforts otherwise the hope still remains.

I call each night to hear your voice, maybe then I'll feel at ease. The voices in my head calm down only to grow the need that I feel lying in my bed while a storm brews outside, before my dreams take me somewhere else, somewhere uncharted and wild.

Without a map I guide myself to places new to me. Where I may just find happiness or a reason to believe, or a reason to stay, or a reason to sleep.
