On glad to be here, Dirt (Devon Mello) approaches songwriting from a more timbral perspective. There are lyrics and clear stories behind each piece, but due to production decisions it is hard to make sense of many of them. This vague lineage directs the album, making moments of blurred beauty spring out along the growing track list, from the subtlety of “scout” to the sprawling climax of “a deer died today on i-95”.
“i wrote and recorded this when i was reflecting on the past winter spent in the hudson valley and the insomnia depression that came with it. i listened to a shit ton of grouper and drank a lot. the lyrics are pretty hard to understand so do with them what you will.
