Seed Clouds 03:53
Well I parked at the end of the runway and watched you board your flight You, who flew above the rain, and sailed into the night, oh Somewhere in the air you watched the moon turn red You, who flew above the rain, you saw the moon turn red, oh Do you know the start? Do you remember the end? The moment I looked into your eyes I knew you were a long-ago lover, or maybe best friend, maybe a brother, maybe a friend The windows grew opaque. The runway, straight and dark. The rain; a cloud within, making the outside blurry and sweet I could seed clouds
Everybody has a sad place in their little hearts and I know what made yours so sad today I'm sorry I couldn't fix it, for I love you tremendously Everybody has a stopwatch in this blasted town and I know, mine's broken too And I would fix it if I knew how But just because I don't know how to fix a broken watch doesn't mean I can't tell time I think it's time to take some fresh air for a minute of this hour Now wait a second, here on the roof you touch my hand so silently Away from all the rooms and all the ticking and the watchful eyes Out here we can banish all the sadness from our lives In the heat, in the dark, for my best behavior's doffed her azure gown We can generate the only saving labour: Kiss me dear there's no one looking kiss me darling kiss me now Oh my heart if fibrillating, kiss me darling, kiss me darling, kiss me now.
Gearing Up 03:43


Marshweed Ensemble recorded this record at the Berenice house in NE Los Angeles in Nov/Dec of 2020, and it is largely made up of live tracks from the studio album "Marshweed in the Garden." Tracks 7 and 8 are bonus live tracks from a Berenice Halloween house show performance in 2018.

Being that winter 2020 was at record-high COVID-19 infection rates in our city, the live studio portion of this record was recorded as safely and as socially-distanced-ly as we could, with each musician in a separate room of the house, communicating via headphones. These sessions were a welcome respite to the isolation brought by the pandemic shutdown. We hope that this collection will bring you as much listening enjoyment as recording them did for us.

Footage for the video to "Sad Place" was filmed in Joshua Tree National Monument 2021.
