new album - after tomorrow

i compiled those home recordings into an album called 'after tomorrow' which came out on 11 july 2020 through desert mine music

i mastered it myself, so don't go expecting any stardust. it's available on all streaming sites, and should be on the desert mine shop soon.

working on some new stuff at the moment. started off with a drum machine. but then realise i hate drum machines, so am trying to drum it myself in a shed. but got bitten by insects and my timing is not as accurate as i was hoping, so will see how that goes.

while i'm here listen to: soccer mommy, la luz, summer fiction, beach boys, purling hiss, tony molina, sarah bethe nelson,

anyway, here are the lyrics for the 'after tomorrow' album for my mexican friends...
