Weight of the Globe
(Digital Download Card)
Vinyl LP pressing of this 2013 EP. Each song on the Weight of the Globe was written as a discrete, self-contained Folk Pop statement, but due to the real-time circumstances of recording it, the EP holds together like a collection of interconnected short stories. Taken as a whole, the songs chart a journey from love to disillusionment to heartbreak; the narrator's weariness in "Tired" persists into "Things I'll Later Lose" ("I've been hearing things, and I've been losing sleep"), while the words to "Back to the River" seemingly return to the same mythic river that flows through "In the Middle."
