about

we finished tracking for the new album and rendered some rough mixes this week. we just need to add horns and tweak the mix a bit and we should be good to go. hopefully in a month or two we can get it finished up. this weeks' song is going to be on the album for sure.

The three fierce mantras (Wyl. drag sngags gsum) of Tsangpa Gyaré are:

- “Whatever has to happen, let it happen!” (ci yong ba shog)
- “Whatever the situation is, it’s fine!” (gang ltar 'gro ba song)
- “I don’t need anything whatsoever (but the Dharma)!” (ci kyang dgos pa med)

lyrics

whatever has to happen, let it happen
whatever the situation, it is fine
I don't really need too much of anything
no, I don't need anything at all

the crux of my fear and apprehension
is a rats nest of "what ifs", "shoulda" and "coulda beens"
but the moment don't hold no junk
and I'm cleaning out my trunk
little bits at a time, often as I can

sour grapes aint got no vitamin D
tiny violins play a thin melody
no hope, no despair
just hanging in there
little bits at a time
often as I can

whatever has to happen, let it happen
whatever the situation, it is fine
I don't really need too much of anything
no, I don't need anything at all

Hi there. You can sign up for my mailing list here: eepurl.com/bcruFT

I post a song once a week on Tuesdays. If I've just finished a song I'll record a rough demo and put it up. Sometimes its live recordings or weird electro collages. I also make a video most weeks using public domain footage. Check it out!

Thanks for taking the time to check out my music!
