Tiny Tangled Trainwreck

I play mandolin and haven't written anything new in entirely too long. Today I remedied that while also facing my fear of writing/playing in the key of F.

22 (not a t. swift song)

I took a break from music stuff for six months, and then came up with three songs in rapid succession. I'm out of practice, and I'm not in love with this one, but it's the best of the three. Posting just so I don't completely fall out of the habit.

Pilot

Apologies for my absence — again. I will be releasing an album under the moniker Kings Of Last Night this year, and I want to share with you an outtake, a B-side if you will, a sketch of a song that didn't make the album but deserves to be played on the internets. That song is "Pilot", a story of aviation, extended metaphors, the fourth wall, and disaster. External links: KOLNBandcamp [more inside]
