about

"Stunningly captured moments of heartache and loss. A seemingly effortless blend of Squire’s and Maki’s voices accompanied by the same beautifully quiet background guitar picking." - GRAY OWL POINT

Whilst travelling through the south of Spain in the fall of 2010, Kate Maki and Fred Squire stopped at Paco Loco Studio in El Puerto de Santa Maria to record a couple country songs. Having only known each other a very short time, the couple, standing around an old RCA ribbon mic, breezed through the songs as though they had been playing together for decades.

Track Name: Calling It Quits
Calling It Quits

I got choked up when I saw you
When I saw you in his arms
So I went down
Right down to the bottom
Of a very expensive bottle of wine
It's been a month long expensive bottle of wine
I went and pulled out all the letters
The letters I wrote I never sent
About the springtime
What makes me happy
How we once shared a loving bed
And just how much I loved when I loved my man
So when I speak to my neighbour
We used to talk about the weather
Now we talk about forever
And how forever feels so long
When you're alone
I went and wrote down some kindly words
Words that I wish that I had said
Like you're a heartbeat
Beating softly
You are the only bird that sings in rhyme
Love finds a way to get lost every time
So when I speak to my neighbour
We used to talk about the weather
But now we talk about forever
And how forever feels so long
When you're alone

Crazy Tropical Survival Guide

All at once the world will be ending
All at once everything in the world will seem so clear
Everything you did, everything you thought
Everything you broke, everything you bought
Will be gone away
So the other day I woke up with a smile
And I laughed the whole day through
I'm a happy man as far as I can tell
I'm a happy kind of man
But today I woke up all alone
And I may never find a home
I'm a lost man as far as I can tell
I'm a lost kind of man
So maybe I should waste away each day
Because the place I live is made
Of grey clouds static in the sky
I'm a happy man on the stage
All at once the world ended
All at once everything in the world became so clear
Everything I did, everything I thought
Everything I broke, everything I bought
Had gone away
