Typewriters clack with their meat cleaver keys stamping their feet in red letters White ribbon scriptures hang cracks to the walls And I cant catch a break of a word Fragments hang backs to the rafters Sheets pass their last owner's best incantations Up into my skin with precision Preachers sling hooks from the plaster The faster they preach and the faster I reach For the speech I relapse and retreat I'm ready, I'm skillet, I'm heat on a leash And I cant catch a scratch of a word I'm sweating out ink and I’m gasping Grievances creek through the gutter I reach for the speed of the speech and release with each word a new son to another

I'm only angry between First cigarette and sleeping Tell me you love me need me State I'm in do you really Late night in California Light rips across the sky Even the stars adore ya Fracture so easy I'm only angry between First cigarette and sleeping
3.
Is this my skin So weak and worn Is this my grip This prick and thorn Take this my flesh This blue white flesh These blue white limbs This blue white skin That sweet embrace That naked state That naked eye That sweetest trace That blue white dawn All weak and worn This blue white skin Blue white no more Imperfect Love
4.
We tried so hard to make it We tried so hard to make it break Dear God I know we don't talk much But aren't you meant to work for us? Who sees who and how's the view there Show me who's been made in whose I see you and what's it to ya? Tell me who's afraid of who Your eyes are mine, Your names are new Your clothes your shoes, Your milk teeth too Our borrowed tongue, Will come undone It's only same, As ever was Your shoes are new, Your accent too Our borrowed tongue, Will come undone It's only same, As ever was It's only same as always was We tried so hard to make it We tried so hard to make it break Oh God I know we don't talk much But aren't you meant to work for us?

Coda 02:57
Embarrassed to fall back on calling I called For some kind of divine intervention I'm sure what I called for was more than a cruel apparition a girl in a vision She hangs like a canvas she hangs in thin air And this is the guide I got given I crossed my chest like a child And this is the guide I got given When I last lost my loving for living And this is the guide I got given

Mamma Fay waves off her green gypsy dress Pulls the next cigarette to her humming bird lips Works at the cards and the beads in her bag Fingertips to her voodoo and prayers Mamma Fay walk to the water Lovers, hold on to your loves Fathers, hold on to your daughters Mother's, hold on to the ones kept indoors We walk to the water in history’s shoes and we Move with a grace in a skin Last New Orleans dawn of July and the sky Bites its tongue on a charm and a chain Mamma Fay walks in the water Lover, hold on to your love Mother, hold on to your daughter Father, keep hold on to the ones left indoors We bathe in the river, we grieve Cool ink runs slick between black ribbon hair A green gypsy dress meets the morning We breathe in the New Orleans air

about

Fritch: A city in Hutchinson and Moore Counties in the U.S. state of Texas. 35.6398°N, 101.6032°W. Population 2,117 (2010 census).

Fritch: A process, progression, an evolving collection. Music and words with no fixed address. Population… open and growing.

"Tough on ourselves, out of place, out of time. A bag of devices and half sized contraptions sit unused and stuffed in a corner. Ho Chi Min City's nervous system of synapses fire, whine and grind through the gristle.

In the back of my mind there's a house deep in Texas where the decades and decor hang in 120F heat, where the imprints of families all grown up and gone hang like words that still cling to the walls..."

What began on a laptop in the U.S. and Vietnam found a home in the U.K. and collaborative works. Violins, pianos, bangra drums and electronics. Experimentations with textures and sound. Scott Walker and Low, Leonard Cohen and Burial all helped shape live loops and their echoes.
What arrived is a mini-album of self contained songs that twist dreampop and shoegaze, melancholia and love, and fear into heartfelt contortions. This is honesty, beauty, unease, naked truths, all laid out and painfully open.

A must for all fans of late SCOTT WALKER, DAVID BOWIE, SWANS, DAVID SYLVIAN, CINDYTALK, CHRIS CONELLY, LOW...

Fritch is a cool discovery and an interesting newcomer.
Fritch is hard to catch and hard to label; the album needs a few listening, but in the end you’ll have to recognize it’s a great piece of music.

"In How’s The View There?, we can hear influences of classic artists like Scott Walker, David Bowie, Leonard Cohen, Nick Cave, Tindersticks, but also from modern bands like Low or electronic music genius Burial. If you like any of the mentioned artists (and that’s really bad taste not to like any of them) you should, definitely, listen to the album."
