released March 2, 2013

Sea in a Circle was written and recorded improvisationally at home using a synth, banjo, guitar, and drum kit by Noel'le Longhaul over the course of two days in March, 2013. Additional vocals by Andrew and Katie on "Wrinkling" and by Cea Wiley on "Thicket." Mary Oliver's poem "Dogfish" read by Rick Benjamin on the song of that same name. So much love to you four, and too many more to count.

Track Name: wire thicket
Black against black

you see them only when
they flit between you
and the white boughs.

Fragile eclipses

Impossible to count,
like the paths

we flicker down
only to reach
an impassable thicket.

There is always a place you must stop:

Not because it is too tangled
or because the knives are not sharp enough
but because it does not invite you forward.

I hear the crows

their wings like the trees breaking
and drifting softly away
