about

This mini-album articulates a particular synthesis of styles (Appalachian Yiddish?) better than anything I’ve done previously. This might not be saying much. All the same, enjoy.

Banjos used: (1) Custom Deering Sierra mahogany openback; (2) Pisgah Possum fretless with a 12-inch pot and synthetic gut strings.

Track Name: The Mind is Not
THE MIND IS NOT

A town with
Neighborhoods, the mind

Is not, the
Mind is not.
A cabinet with

Drawers, the mind
Is not, the
Mind is not.

A continent with
Wars, a nymph
Of many moods,

A town with
Neighborhoods, the mind
Is not.

An
Acacia with roots,
The mind is

Not, the mind
Is not. A
Machine with parts,

The mind is
Not, the mind
Is not. A

Quiver full of
Darts, a quavering
Of lutes, an

Acacia with roots,
The mind is
Not.

Numberless, the
Things the mind
Is not, the

Mind is not.
But what is
Not the Not

The mind is
Not, the mind
Is not? Metaphor

Begot by stingers
For the stings…
Numberless, the things

The mind is not.
