August Years 01:18
The ghost of June is my beating heart The spectre of July never departs August is a bridge from this world to the fall When the wind blows, autumn hears the call It's been years and those august days Are coming back again It's been years and those august days Are coming back again
Great Lakes 02:25
Summer Sun 01:43
I'm about to lose my mind Heatwave falling from the sky I'm giving up I'm giving up I'm giving up I'm giving up Sun shining so bright and wide The day burns now pass on by I'm reaching up I'm reaching up I'm reaching up I'm reaching up I see the light Of the summer sun But twilight has come
The woodpecker makes a rhythm sound In my thoughts I think I might drown The only beautiful day this week gives me something to think about.
I belonged to you and you belonged to me a sentimental picture of the ghost I cannot leave These sour-apple quinces among the slender thorns are all that’s left of what I knew before we were forlorn Staring at A South-Facing Wall again There's no end There's no end In sight
Yesterdays 01:35


"We wanted to take a short break from our Singles Series to try something different. The result is six short folk songs strung together with nature field recordings. These minimalist tracks evoke the feel of Ludo and I playing live together with just a guitar, glockenspiel, and vocals. We hope that enjoy this EP just as much as we enjoyed making it. Have a great summer!" ~ Tim

Download the EP and you will get the bonus track "Vogel" included! Vogel is a short ambient drone piece using bits from August Years and The Only Beautiful Day This Week.
