about

These sounds are a bunch of LoFi recordings (I'm having deja vu while writing this) taken with my phone. I've been listening to a lot of Mountain Goats recently and I've gotten really into the idea of just putting stuff out with little regard to the stuff. I know that's not really the point of LoFi recordings, but whatever.

about

The Shrews Halifax, Nova Scotia

I thought of the name The Shrews after a screening of 2001: A Space Odyssey. The first song I wrote was Prince Hal 9000, a reference to the film and King Henry IV Part One.
Every couple years, I make a song that entirely captures how I feel about everything, so I make a few more for few more for fun and sadness and call it an album.

Track Name: Another Pig
If there's blood in the egg
and there's egg on your face
if you're drying a stain
or you're making a mess

no more
for the love of god no more

If the sausage is raw
and the rice is dry
maybe then that pig
shoulda stayed alive

if he was smart
he woulda named himself a name

but babe was already taken
yeah babe was already took
that name was already taken
by another pig

If your hole needs digging
then you better stop pigging
oh, you better stop pigging
out

on deer and beef and chicken and pork, oh lord.

If you were smart
you would have save up a bit more

If the cows need milking
and your daughter needs kissing
then I'm right down
the road

old man
for the love of god old man

If the sausage is raw
and the bed's is dry
then maybe that pig
shoulda stayed all night

if you were smart
you woulda maimed yourself a man

but babe was already taken
yeah babe was already toke
yeah babe was already taken
by another pig

If that night is dark
and the dog's got bark
she's left for a lark
out

oh the fight's in the bite of the dog with the jaws, oh lord

If you were smart
you could have saved her more

If your spit is red
and your arms are lead
and there's a man's fist
baring down

no more
for love of god no more

If you've had desert
and you've had deserts
and you've got your
just deserts

than maybe that fist was all that you deserved

but babe was already taken
yeah babe was already took
that babe was all ready to be taken
by another pig

If you're feeling bold
but your feet are cold
maybe you should just hold
out

all the running you've done, well it wasn't much fun, oh lord

If you were smart
you coulda saved yourself a bit more
