    In lieu of physical copies of Vestige, I'm selling prints of the EP cover photo (sans text/type) and two other photos from an August 2017 shoot in Gary, Indiana. The photos are printed on premium, semi-glossy Canson Infinity Platine Fibre Rag (12" x 12" paper with a 1/2" white margin). They'll be carefully shipped (between cardboard stiffeners, with tracing paper protecting the face of each print, all inside a cardboard box). The photographs were taken by Dylan Fischer (IG: @dylvnfischer).

    Includes unlimited streaming of Windjammer via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

In the morning
When the sun's wet
I will surface then sink
Down there somewhere
I am breathing it in
Akin to tinder
Swaddled softly
In a filmy plastic sheet
Or a trophy
Dressed in old glass britches
I am pushing it, I am pushing it

Like the neon
On a cheap marquee
I am shaking
Until mischief
With a stone in hand
Casts out mercy
So I light up
Once more
Brighter than before
And with embers tearing downward through the cool air
I wipe my cheek
And at last I am clean

Eyes are digging
Always digging
I am buried
In the carpet
On the window sill
I rest in shades of green
Like a fungus
Or a moldy fruit
Thriving underneath
The careful watch of present-minded people
And I rise unseen
Yeah, I rise unseen
I rise unseen
Yeah, I rise unseen
