Karl Ward I am fairly certain that Bouquet are hiding somewhere in my house RIGHT NOW. And I am totally fine with that, as long as they keep making albums where I love every song. Favorite track: Come to Your House.

Dante Sudilovsky Carolyn Pennypacker Riggs is truly an incredible musician: one of the most beautiful voices I can recall.

A big shift from The Finches of yore, the minimal electronic beats of this release certainly give a whole new feel to Carolyn's voice. Favorite track: Over Mountains.

((small howl)) This is pop music in its purest form. Carolyn's meticulous approach and attention to detail never fails to engage my attention. Beautiful album. Again and again.

IN A DREAM If you want to walk with me I will welcome company though I know, I know I’ll never be the one you’re looking for for the one that I adore is a shadow on the blind is a picture in my mind and nothing more Some say: impossible to miss a mouth that never wished, a heart that never beat against a bone oh yes, I know it never was I know, it sounds obscene I meet him and hold her in a dream In a dream, in a dream we walk meandering streetlights stretch past tracks that lead away to the meadows that I know from a thousand years ago here I lie with my love lie, lie, lie and lie... for a while As I rise, I still see this tableaux vividly I try to keep it close I try to keep anything his back against the lawn her fingers in my hair their laugh between my teeth... I try to keep it there In a dream, in a dream we walk meandering streetlights stretch past tracks that lead away to the meadows that I know from a thousand years ago here I lie with my love lie, lie, lie and lie for a while In a dream, in a dream we walk meandering streetlights stretch past tracks that lead away to the meadows that I know from a thousand years ago here I lie with my love In a dream, in a dream our words are what they mean whispering: let me stay in the meadows that I know from a thousand years ago here I lie with my love lie, lie, lie and lie... for a while

STACKS ON STACKS Through the gaping gates columns crawl encircle curious enough to touch a paper doll, second tooth, diary’s scrawl, a picture of you Hands revolve around the face wring away the hours dust lands on lace Stacks on stacks so extend catalyzing nothing: nothing begins paper trails interleave lead to nowhere no one, nothing Hands revolve around the face twist away the hour dust lands on lace circle intimates a rhyme a pop, a flash of light swiftly back in time Is someone stalling dragging out the dawn window’s calling to write your name upon is there someone there someone smiling draw the face and dissipate quietly Through the gaping gates columns crawl catalyzing nothing nothing at all paper trails interleave lead to nowhere no one, nothing

COME TO YOUR HOUSE I want to come to your house I want to want to come over I want to see those pictures you’ll never even notice I want to come to your house I want to see what you hide in the mirror tear through your clothing comb through your hair pretend you’ll never know this Hey, I know that it’s late I know it’s probably too late but how can you sleep with the sound of my desire ringing in your ear? I’m going to come to your house I’m going to caress your figurines lift my lips, drink dust from your trophies I want to come to your house I want to want to come over I want to see those pictures you’ll never even know

OVER MOUNTAINS How can I find a love with anybody else you know it’s been a hard little time I’m spending it by myself. how can I drift through the day keeping cover while waxing deeply cliche I move over mountains to tell you: hi, hello I want you to know I’d rather be fooled than be let go Not very long ago I used to lead a life I used to have some friends and meet them from time to time used to be carefully calm, collected how do I move mountains now? I move over mountains to tell you: hi, hello I want you to know I’d rather be fooled than be let go over mountains, under a spell am I the guilty guy? I’d rather be fooled than told goodbye

Falling Will you hold onto my hand? I’m falling forwards Farther than before, falling further I’m falling, falling... still falling “Something... is something wrong?” Colors everything I’m leaning on A nervous thing I do every time that I try to think on you I shred a big bouquet between my hands holding off the summer fade the solstice past, heading home at last what welcomes a sheepdog captured on her way beyond the pasture gate? Will you lead me home? Something, something is wrong Come in clear to me or move along Nervous things I do to keep you warm, to make you strong Trees were singing “bow/ugh to me” I cried, “With your leaves you tempted me. Now they fall from the canopy!” So I stumble through the desert to escape your day long shadow. Will you follow? I’m starting to relax it’s taken too long to anticipate an end or ascend I’m falling, falling still falling
