"His music is playful and simple, but most importantly portable - ukelele strums, glockenspiel plunks, kiddie-Casio key strokes, flutes toots, and small cymbals make up the core pallet of sounds, all of it contributing to the miniature, hand-held feel of the tape."

Track Name: A Crooked Thorn
I never meant to hurt
I never meant to scorn
Sometimes the darkest cloak is the wool that you've worn

I never meant to live
I never meant to die
I read the note you wrote and now I know why

Now I really am so torn
In my side a crooked thorn

I never meant to break
I never meant to burn
Deep in my bloodshot heart I know that it's your turn

Now I really am so torn
In my side a crooked thorn
In my heart a bloody thorn
Now I know it is your turn
