dumbpop – Take Good Care

Some more 1-minute dumbpop songs.

A few of these songs I have been sitting on for a few years and some were made during the pandemic. They traverse thoughts, emotions, and difficulties I have experienced at numerous times in my life. I like to imagine releasing these songs out into the world may be a way to release myself from some of these personal afflictions – at least for a minute.

Please listen with headphones.

Written, recorded, and produced in Vancouver on the unceded traditional territories of the Coast Salish peoples of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and Səl̓ílwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.

Also written and recorded on the traditional territory of the Attawandaron, Anishinaabeg, Haudenosaunee, and Lunaapeewak peoples of southwestern Ontario.
