BACK IN STOCK!!! The first taste in an ongoing series of projects by DAWN McCARTHY on a theme that's been largely unexplored in recent times: the age-old practices of tending a home and its immediate impact upon our day to day lives. It is an invitation to return to our kitchens and homes with reverence, to enjoy a largely overlooked sanctuary in the modern age. The EP’s title track depicts a person awakening to a neglected home; words from the mouth of a adolescent, or an adult looking back. The lyrics were culled partially from a writing project Dawn led with teenagers at the Idyllwild Arts Academy when she was an Artist In Residence there. The song also suggests the deeper implications in families gathering around the table and our roots with historical folkways. The two other tracks offer up textural contrasts: “Pictures,” a plaintive lullaby about capturing time, and “Winter Sleep,” an epic piece rooted in the landscapes of Iceland and McCarthy’s friendship with producer/composer VALGEIR SIGURDSSON, who co-wrote the song with her. Continuing from previous FAUN FABLES material, vocals are strongly featured throughout; surprising melodies, contrapuntal harmonies, breath and unison chants.
