Swarovnupnup Hauntingly beautiful, and yet gorgeously simple. Favorite track: safety scissors.

marie broadway can't pick a favorite track. this music puts me in such a particular mood- a nostalgic haunting- a collapsing dreamscape- I love that hh is not afraid to write short songs. i'm so inspired by this work and the games these songs accompany ((the yawhg))

mosheh soulful dark original and haunting beautiful melodies. Mazzy Star meets Léonard Cohen. Favorite track: FIGURE v-2.

Braulio Rivas When I met The Yawhg it became one of my favorite albums of all time. I think that's because of its honesty. And now I'm glad to know that Halina released her first album. The first of many, I hope! Favorite track: FIGURE v-2.
Cecil Reed

Cecil Reed More of the silly song names for songs with great lyrics I've come to love. Also serious song names, and names that are half-serious-half-nonsense (I'm looking at you, 0101011 talking to a friend). So basically, it's pretty dang good. Favorite track: new kind of love.

Track Name: 0101011 talking to a friend
no one is ever going to give you the right answer
you'll fight it all off, you'll fight us all off
but we'd go to hell for you

you just keep thinking whatever you want to,
we can't change a damn thing
and it's like you know, and you'll twist us dead, you'll twist us all
Track Name: safety scissors
and I caught you running
I caught you running again
and I caught you running
I caught you running again

don't let those safety scissors cut your hands
don't run with safety scissors -
you'll lose your hands

(and I caught you running, I caught you running again)
Track Name: new kind of love
you always said I was the funny one
and I always thought you were wrong
now your crooked teeth can't hide your lies no more

you keep wearing your rings at night
like they hold some kind of truth you might like
and you're holding hands with the memories
you can't have, but you don't care

and you don't seem to notice
that we're just trying to find some new kind of love
to fake, to take and make it our own
Track Name: 000hkjlftrutt7868768yjkg
all my life I've been waiting for

all my life I've been waiting for
someone to break through
and I can't take this any more

this is wrong -
we wait for something to change
and I wait
and I wait
for another day

kan du se,
what happened to me?
and I don't know
cause I can't see
what happened to me
what happened to me
I can't see
what happened to me

and you will
you will
hate this.
I'm alone
and you will, you will hate this

so save me
save me

please, save me
i didn't ask for this
you know

and i can feel it pushing down
on me

i know you've been hiding
i know you've been hiding
i know you've been hiding all along

and it hurts
to see you fall apart
Track Name: lullaby
count the stars on the roof,
they're starting to fade
and you can't get out of bed
it's already made

when I see you in my sleep
I'd fall apart, and cry
'cause you're just another -
fucked up lullaby
Track Name: FIGURE v-2
i see you're in your castle again
i see you're going underwater
you've turned it all into dark blue
trying to hide the scars on your arms

i know you say it's hell
i know you've heard it all before
we know you've got your head up in the clouds
and here's to wishing you'll come down

i know i'll find you in someone else' clothes
i know i'll find you on the floor
i know i'll find you in someone else' room
i hope i find you soon
