about

Recorded around the back end of summer 2011 and finished in the lead up to winter, this ep marks a concerted effort towards honing ACS's production style, and lyrically catalogues a difficult time in his personal life as the title suggests. With a lo-fi approach to ACS's production values, this ep encapsulates what The Blossom Shed "sound" hopes to symbolise; and that is honest and intelligent music without pretence.

To get a free download of this ep, simply put a zero in the price box.

Track Name: hello, a girl
hello, a girl
tell me things that you've learned
tell me things that you've found, when your world's upside down
tell me that you are fine
how you sometimes still cry
but you're convinced that you're better off alone

hello, a boy
is your pathos a ploy
is your head such a mess, disingenuous
is it hard to endure
is it hard to ignore
but you're convinced that you're better off alone

hello my friend
since we started this trend
all the night times we've missed, and the mornings first kiss
all the moments we've shared will no longer seem fair
but we're convinced that we're better off alone
Track Name: inklid
it's simple math
what works will last
not all great minds think alike
one simple goal to have and hold, can go

it's simple math
what works will last
not all great minds take sides
one simple goal to have and hold, can go

words won't make or build a home
faith holds sway
Track Name: shappah
read it in the papers all the time,
'man who lost his fortune and mind,
after killing his kids and wife conducted his suicide.'

so get yourself in make-up, your live in five
remember make eye contact and smile
push back the urge to shout
don't let the voices out

my baby's in the bedroom tongue-tied
a well of deep affection has run dry
so turn out the lights and hide
this bed is cold...goodnight.
Track Name: oh sweet, simple days
oh sweet, simple days it seems you've done me again
three hundred and sixty-five have passed me by
I could be wrong, I could be asleep?
nothing's as it seems, my nightmares aren't confined to my dreams
but to think is to be alive
so rectify what's come and gone, and what shall be done
here's to the year
wash my guilt and baggage clear
here's to my friends, and to recompense

oh sweet, simple days it seems you've done me again
three hundred and sixty-five slide on by
I could be wrong, I could be asleep?
'cos nothing's as it seemed, my nightmares jumped out of my dreams
but I am alive and rectified
what has come and gone, and what shall be done
so here's to the year, wash my guilt and baggage clear
thanks to my friends and to recompense
