about

homecoming (three years later) is about loss and healing. After the sudden loss of his best friend, Dan Thorpe rushed across the interior of Australia with a car full of instruments and performance gear, and across the Pacific Ocean to California to get to the funeral.

What results is somewhere between a diary and an act of self-healing, a requiem and the sound of life going on, regardless.

Track Name: tidal wave (Stacey Teague)

has come in through my bedroom window
i am still in bed
with my wet sheets
and my wet hair

i shiver
