drey i found this artist after hearing a Talkhouse podcast that they did with SASAMI that was super great :)

i LOVE "i said i wouldn't write this song" but i don't have the option of setting it as my fave track for some reason

either way, this record is beautiful from beginning to end

indie rock 4 all

vivian_dk full of feeling, with beautiful lyrics! I love the guitar riffs, which can be very tender, and are an absolute delight for my ears! I feel like it's quite a change from Mother of my Children, but it's just as emotional. much love!!! <3 Choosing a favourite track is very hard, because I'm absolutely torn between Run it to Ya and You're Me and I'm You, not to mention I Said I Wouldn't Write This Song :) Favorite track: You're Me and I'm You.

At the Party 03:54
How is it, how is it real? When you don’t even notice it How is it real? We will always sing We will always sing We will always sing We will always sing How is it you’ve suffered through this kind of love? It puts you in a dark place, dark place Even when you look at me Your heart so full I’ll think of you from a nice place, nice place
2.
Wastin’ this life I only want me and you I look at this life I only want me and you My heart dreams… My heart dreams… My heart dreams… My heart dreams… And I wake up I love you Screaming loudly Screaming softly too You’re my dream I need you Screaming loudly Screaming softly too Am I here? Wastin’ this life I only want me and you I look at this life I only want me and you My heart dreams… My heart dreams… My heart dreams… My heart dreams… And I wake up I love you Screaming loudly Screaming softly too You’re my dream I need you Screaming loudly Screaming softly too My heart dreams… My heart dreams… My heart dreams… My heart dreams…
3.
You whisper softly Even over here, I feel your voice coming through I feel what I’m like with you I feel… You walk calmly through your own backyard Your peace wanders through your own night How far will it go from here? I feel… What was it that I’ll be? In this life? You and me? And I know How it sounds Under waves Through the dark night skies

Real Lovin 04:17
Now that you can dream What is it you see When you wake up in the folds of blankets in your bed? In your room? In your house? By yourself? I see a real lovin Hearts pumping Palms sweating Dizziness And the sheets are gleaming From the two of us Of us, of us, of us… But you’re dreaming cuz that’s not real You’ve tried and tried What seems a million times And you wonder how you’ll end up Is it the moon? Is it the stars? Do they rule you? And your heart? Well you think that is bullshit cuz What’s the point when you go outside And the sun is shining through the trees on your face On your face, On your face, On your face… … there’s real love! There’s real love. There’s real love! There’s real love. On my face, On my face, On my face, On my face.

Run it to Ya 03:39
You like flowers I pick flowers You like milk I have cows When the day Turns to night Oh that time Sure is nice Run it to ya Run it to ya Run it to ya Run it to ya You have eyes Just like mine And your hair The blackest shine When I see you And I notice What a girl is In this moment In this moment In this moment In this moment In this moment Run it to ya Run it to ya Run it to ya Run it to ya Run it to ya Run it to ya Run it to ya Run it to ya
6.
You feel the eyes  Staring right at you Tears filled with joy  And hindrance too  I said I wouldn't write this song I said I wouldn't write this song I said I wouldn't write this song I said I wouldn't write this song Well nothing ever comes when you want it to Nothing ever comes when you want it to I said I wouldn’t write this song I said I wouldn’t write this song

Scorpio Moon 02:46
I had it all In my dreams I had it all It’s not a dream And through you You’re my dream And through you I had it You know it’s gone You see it all I loved you more Than I’d ever know And through you I had it And through you I had it
8.
How you look at me In the brightness of your room Imagine The lightness of my fingers on your face Run through your hair Across your neck Light breaks across your room I never knew I’d like half colored hair so much But in the light I never knew I’d like half colored hair so much But in the light I never knew I’d like half colored hair so much But in the light I never knew I’d like half colored hair so much How you look at me In the brightness of your room Imagine What it’s like to wake up every day Here in the bay A time untouched Light breaks across your room I never knew I’d like half colored hair so much But in the light I never knew I’d like half colored hair so much But in the light I never knew I’d like half colored hair so much But in the light I never knew I’d like half colored hair so much But I knew I’d like you I knew I’d like you I knew I’d like you So I didn’t care Cos I care for you

My mother, my mom My mother, my mom Just like yours, she's my mom  Just like you, she's my mom She wears her atikluk under the sun The tundra hits her heart, it’s just begun  I am the one The one she loves No matter what  My heart becomes My mother, my mom My mother, my mom You know, you're me and I'm you  Just like you, my mom I wear my Sedna lines, here for her heart  I live my life by love I am the sun  I am the one  The one she loves I am the one  The one she loves

about

Released in September of 2018, Mother of My Children was the debut album from Black Belt Eagle Scout, the recording project of Katherine Paul. Heralded as a favorite new musician of 2018 by the likes of NPR Music, Stereogum, and Paste, the album was also named as a “Best Rock Album of 2018” by Pitchfork, and garnered further end-of-year praise from FADER, Under The Radar and more.

Arriving just a year after that debut record, At the Party With My Brown Friends is a brand new full-length recording from Black Belt Eagle Scout. Where that first record was a snapshot of loss and landscape and of KP’s standing as a radical indigenous queer feminist, this new chapter finds its power in love, desire and friendship.

At the Party With My Brown Friends is a profound and understated forward step. The squalling guitar anthems that shaped its predecessor are replaced by delicate vocals and soft keys, sentiments spoken and unspoken, presenting something shadowy and unsettling; a stirring of the waters. The end result presents a captivating about-face that redefines KP’s beautifully singular artistic vision.
