Colleen's Captain of None, which I was fortunate enough to write about earlier in the year as it got a limited edition vinyl release, will be on my top albums of the year list - I haven't made it yet because the year hasn't ended and I'm still finding things, but it's for sure going to be on there. You should listen to that album for "I'm Kin" and "Captain of None" alone. However, this post isn't about that - it's about Colleen's striking debut Everyone Alive Wants Answers. Here's a factoid that's quite important - this cassette only has six left in stock at press time. I realize it's an ungodly hour in the morning, but I figure I'd try to run this by anyone who will notice before the rest fly off in, likely, the next few hours. A quick description of this album: Imagine yourself gaining consciousness (albeit, you're quite groggy) on a lofty grass covered hillside next to a babbling brook, and you're bearing witness to all the woodland creatures. This album sounds like an opiate. That sound like it's up your alley? Because it's certainly up mine. Listen to the album in full via the Spotify player below and see what you think of it. Cheers!
Colleen's debut 2003 album 'Everyone Alive Wants Answers' gets a first time cassette treatment from Portland based label Beacon Sound. Hand-numbered edition of 100 in fold-over box manufactured and printed by Stumptown Printers.

"One of those rare, truly evocative abstract pieces of art where every observer takes away their own interpretation, and is left feeling a little more special as a result." - Pitchfork
