Barbed Thaw 03:59
Pay close attention Cos at any moment I might be about to speak Bloody well listen And I’ll tell you any old shit that comes to mind
Plough a salt wave Don't let your worldly friends say I've forgotten Sleep on no bed of doubt Plume display What they've been writing to you It was mostly written rotten Don't let your mother tell you I'm best forgotten Plough a salt wave Sleep on no bed of doubt
Herd Of Deer 02:37
Old man missing from the village Curious deer herd silhouetted  On the hillside It's getting dark Empty quarry for the weekend I fell down sharply on the loose stones On the hillside It's nearly dark
Killing Flaw 03:06
Kirwan 02:55
Choose anyone in a crowd
I begged hard for my darling as I would for my life But they'd not listen to me a woe upon wife The king must have sailors to the seas he must go And leave me lamenting in sorrow and woe A woe upon wife
Clouded Moon 03:07
Clouded moon Reconcile To what becomes To what does pass Thank you Kindly Leathered moon  Leathered thought Been a long time young Be a long time old Thank you Kindly
Levers 01:35
Can't chase no covetous kind Can't ease your wrenching mind Life entire to have and hold I can't please your early tolds Cant please no covetous kind Can't rest your wrenching mind
Niluaj 01:43
Gown 02:14
I wish there was a word that meant more than thank you One you could only say just a few times in your life I'd say it now to all my friends in the room Then I'd pull you aside and say it only to you Only to you etc


“Stef’s guitar playing may find new and confounding ways to mould chromaticism and arythmia around a tonal nucleus on the verge of collapse, but the songs herein are as close a look at Old Kett’s raggedy heart as we’ve been afforded to date. “Plough A Salt Wave” marries a desperate plea to the sound of rupturing steel, “Clouded Moon” flirts with classic tropes and major chords and “Herd Of Deer” is more explicitly folkish than anything he’s done before. Bookended and interspersed with some wild experimentation for the purists, scattered with wry humour, Cry And Sing is a beautiful piece that glows longer in the hearth after each successive listen” (Byrey Colon)
