Castlevania 03:39
I had a spooky dream where nothing ever turned out, cardboard castles caving in. Every folded page of this world I built up, do anything to make it stand.
Building forts from blankets pulled from off of beds and cushions from the couches. Parents looking on with supportive smiles. Save them from their own dark eyes. Good night Sleep well Kids will be skeletons tucked inside bedrooms kept shut safe from the normal world safe from the neighborhood.
Be My Baby (free) 03:13
Catching Clouds in nets of linen patching up the holes folding corners starting over with everything. Brushed aside the barest bristles, still feel it on my face silver line the silver lining. is it me? cut to the chase I'm floating away. Waiting on a brighter skyline watching from my room the soft song of a million light bulbs humming. Feeling these sparks pushing up from underneath my skin some creature coming out to the surface


Midwest Manners is the debut of Boston based teamsters Sinnet. Recorded with two microphones and a laptop in various bedrooms and practice spaces around town, without the use of any new fangled pitch correction or beat detection. Just the facts, just the fax.
