  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    The artwork for this CD was drawn in pencil on a paper bag by Katie Ferreira. The idea was a little world of musical pollution provided by yours truly... or, if you ask some perverse college kids, a subliminal phallus.

    The plan was that they look like little paper-bag cases. In really real life they are sleekly manufactured by New England CD in glossy slimline cases.

about

This is one of two songs on Strong Bones + Teeth that has never been re-recorded. We think it along with Waiting for Nothing came out well enough the first time around that they need no revisiting. It also gives this lil' EP some worth beyond its simply being old(er).

The clip at the end is an excerpt of the first ever Grey Milk recording. At that time Grey Milk also included Maura Hennessy on upright bass & Brian Brownell on guitar/mandolin who are also heard in the audio clip. The song, entitled "Camping at Home," was captured with a pocket recorder in the abandoned room of an old apartment building in Worcester, MA.

lyrics

And all the calm existentialists
And all the medicated therapists
And the fat yoga instructor
Well they all seemed fine
And I couldn’t quite put my finger on it
But it seemed that they weren’t full of shit
When they told me too
That some day I’ll find it

Well okay...alright
yeah

So I’m shooting in the dark
Here with ol' Mr. Clark
For the wisest man knows
It is he who knows not
Seeking out solace
From inside a guitar
I mean why the hell else
Would we be in Southbridge, Massachusetts anyway?

Well hey, it's okay!
Yay!

The con in connectedness
Is an individualist
Can truly never exist
And all are the same
The con in contentedness
Is you’re still okay with this
Tragedy’s met with bliss
And life turns mundane

Well hey, it’s okay
Yay!

The con in contemporary’s
Everything’s ordinary
Nothing is met
Without a precedent laid
The con in contentedness
Is you’re still okay with this
Tragedy’s met with bliss
And life turns mundane

So all the bits good and bad
Opposites white and black
Viewed from far enough away
All mesh together
In an impossible grey
But this one goes out
To that crazy little spec
Down in Dayville, Connecticut

about

Grey Milk Athens, Georgia

You are here... sort of.

We are natives of New England and currently base our operations out of Athens, GA.

We're part of Nobody's Favorite Records and The Branch Collection: two obscure, amorphous groups of folks who collectively pool our efforts of creativity- primarily those of the musical variety. These monikers give us the appearance of added legitimacy.

We are human.
