L’Armateur, from the album Folder #01.

five years ago the volume settings folder started posting music on tumblr, and a little later on through soundcloud and bandcamp. throughout the next 365 days I will be humbly celebrating this little milestone by reissuing limited and from long time unavailable albums in an accessible format, remastering and publishing the seminal album “Dr. Session” and outing the sixth installment of the Folder series in the next couple of months. a warm fall is coming. I thank hugely all of you who supported me during this time, and hopefully for the years to come! the volume settings folder.

Pianos Become The Teeth - Hiding

“But the house gets so quiet 
Sitting here wishing for just an hour or two, alone with you
Well, it’s always too personal,
Always too close to comment.
They all mention how tired you look
And you realize you haven’t said a word in hours
Well, who’s hiding it?
Who the hell is hiding it?”

On the day you died I cut my hair for the funeral
And on memorial day, I started drinking
Because it got kind of hard just sitting there thinking,
About mom all alone in that house 
And I’m too far away to do our lunch dates
She misses the regimen,
She misses the annoyances
The free time is bittersweet
