about

Cain’s Orchard was written and recorded between December 2014-October 2016 . This E.P. signals a growth in contemplative song writing and a palpable shift in lyrical environments, producing at once a highly reflective and intensely symbolic journey in dark folk. The e.p was. tracked slowly and realized in several apartments across Brooklyn New York and home studios in Wisconsin. Cain’s Orchard marks the final bridge between the debut album and Blood and Sun’s second full length record currently being recorded.

Cain’s Orchard is offered here as a 45 rpm 7 inch record pressed in 70 gram Oxblood virgin vinyl with digital downloads. This record is presented in a Gatefold sleeve, on heavy stock carton, with foil blocked text and UV spot varnished elements.

Track Name: Cain's Orchard
We met again beneath empty glasses
The toasts of our past might soon outlast
Time that slips beneath fate's long stare
Though callous and broken we have shown ourselves bare
And I love you my brother so much have we shared
Yes we met in Cain's Orchard boughs weighed down
From the singing tall grass we lift to the sky once full empty glasses
Once full empty glasses
To hail all thats passed between time and our lips
And give to the Fate's untimely wild grips
A toast and a smile our love and our grave
It all fades so quickly but never in waste
And I love you my brother so much have we shared
Yes we met in Cain's Orchard boughs weighed down
From the singing tall grass we lift to the sky once full empty glasses
Once full empty glasses
As night passes us by
Until night passes us by
Track Name: Lavender Letters
The cold set in to stone New York
Rose petals and lavender letters
Leaf by leaf I sent an oak wreath
Piece by piece I sent much of me
As the days carved deep you said "lets strive together"
But (you) meant die apart
Oh how sickly sweet your snake whispers can be
Bands of gold three were never for me
The wind swept through that stone New York
Scattering rose petals, burnt lavender letters
Your ruby eyes gleam, at dusk you set me free
With only a thousand miles to go and a thousand dreams to cleave
The snow set in to that stone New York
No more rose petals oh those lavender letters
Leaf by leaf I sent an oak wreath
Piece by piece you had all of me
Only a thousand more miles to go
And only a thousand more dreams to cleave
Like a heart buried outside stone walls
I leave my confession with Saint Augustine
Track Name: The Hunt and the Fall
It comes like the hunt; storms rage the night sky
Hard is the fall to that dread unknown
Swift strike of the blade
Stings cruel in your side
And in that sharp breath
The Chiseled truth of the end

Before the Night's sky gnaw at my bones
My root in this world? I've yet to find home
A hermit amongst strangers
A stone forest in me
Nestled in brush fire
A snare set in its teeth
The hunt and the fall
The sea and the end
The light in the wound
A stone forest in me

From the trees to the plains
Fertile fields to dark streets
Dust condemns dreams to false deeds

Take this cruel hand
Hold fast as it goes
Hard is the fall that much we both know
Break the nights sky Gnaw at my bones
What root in this world? I've yet to know home
Take my cruel hand
Hold fast as it goes
The light in the fall
To that great unknown
