Harrison Lemke what 4-track indie folk ought to sound like. 1991 Bible Study is one of my all-time favorite songs. Favorite track: 1991 Bible Study.

Luke Janke (Comm. Radio Tapes) This album is a sweet, sweet reverie between sandstone cliffs. You're nestled atop dry pine needles in sand and the waves are coming in; the only sound on a cool night. You're content. Favorite track: Ocean Pines.

Jon Felton this song transports me if I let it. it's both humble and grand. the sparse narrative can be what it is, it more if I let it. easy contemporary ownership of s traditional form seems earned, not touristy. don't know if the song is trembling or I am. we've got strength but on a tenuous string.

Ocean Pines 03:09
My love and I took holiday in the ocean pines We went to wash our cares away in the sleepy ocean pines We took our pup to the ocean side in the cool moonlight by the ocean pines She splashed and played in the tidal pools in the cool moonlight by the sleep ocean pines In the pines, In the pines, in the ocean pines in the cool moonlight by the ocean pines We sat and waited for the tides in the sleep ocean pines When I got home there in my hands was sweet surprise from the ocean pines My pockets full of cool white sand from the sleep ocean pines In the pines, In the pines, in the ocean pines in the cool moonlight by the ocean pines

Dinosaur 03:00
Dreamed I was a dinosaur buried deep beneath the mountain rock Endless aching need for love, I dreamed that it was satisfied for once Chasing down that crashing wave, I dreamed that you and I were safe and sound Spinning on that ferris wheel I couldn’t tell if I was real or not Dreamed it rained cats and dogs and all of them were in my yard at home Endless aching need for love, I dreamed that it was satisfied for once

1991 Bible Study All the young couples from the church were there mom and dad stayed up all night praying with all of them all those marriages have now ended and some of those men are now dead and all those children are now grown and I am one of them and I don't know what it meant 1991 Bible Study All the kids gathered in the darkened den light as a feather stiff as a board we lifted up our friend mom says that the game is evil witchcraft mixed with new age zen and I should know about the devil and I should be afraid of him and I don't know what it meant

The day is cold, the night is dark But I know the warm things in your heart The leaves may fall, the sun may hide But I see the light behind your eyes The river may flow to the sea Or just dry up along the way The fire may just lose it’s spark But I know the warm things in your heart

My daddy said “boy don’t you see That nothing in this world is free, It’s all broken backs and bloody hands working the soil” An I’ll be damned if the old man ain’t right You know the put me out here on the line And I saw some things that no one should ever have seen So drive me out past the county line You know I need to be a stranger for a while Now love is a question I’ve heard That nobody ever gets right Just stab in the dark and shoot off our sparks In the night So girl don’t you cry if I go You know that it’s always the same Just subtle plots twisting and Shifting of faces and names So drive me out past the county line You know I need to be a stranger for a while

about

Ocean Pines By Kenneth Husband

Dearest listener and good friend,

I could tell you the story of this record a few different ways. I could tell you about a perfect day I spent with my wife and my dog surfing on a beach filled with wild horses and I could tell you about a cool evening bungalow on the eastern shore of Maryland where I wrote the title track in 2017. I could tell you about a 25-cent used Hawaiian record I bought at goodwill in 2005 which started an obsession with steel guitar and vocal harmonies in Hawaiian music and it’s fraternal twin early - country/western music. I might also tell you about the brutally cold month of January 2018 where I spent every evening after work in the attic of my house in Frederick hunched over a 4-track recording this music to damaged tapes that had been stored in my hot garage for over a decade and were always threatening to self-destruct. But I think what I suspect that I might really want to tell you is that these songs are really places, little locations that were too precious to me and most were kept private for over 5 years or more. It means a lot to me to share these with you and I hope you feel something when you listen. Thank you.

Your brother in friendship and wonderment,

Kenneth Husband

But that’s Mr. Husband to YOU.

My wonderful friend Clinton Jones made the lovely painting of the ocean pines.

My beautiful guy Jasen Reeder loaned me his 4-track and lent me his ear.

My fantastic mr. music Ryan Pollie loved the record and helped me get it did

Matt at Forged Artifacts made the pretty cassette happen while he was busy getting married and I thank him

Gad bless
