Tearle and I have been practicing since we woke up. We’re pretty delirious, but it feels good to be this tired because of music. I love my life so much ♡ ♡ #DandelionMassacre #FolkPunk

It was a secret to be hidden from my mother 
And my father told me not close any doors 
So I didn’t say a word and I left the doors wide open 
Well your baby has been torn 

I kissed her in secret by my house 
Scared someone might see 
But I realized that moment she was better than a secret 
And she was better than I could ever be 

Coming out was never coming home 
Running away from the things I had known 
We didn’t know that our backpacks were filled with the bullshit 
Until we tried to fix it 

We broke up in February, the boy in college 
He touched me but I never touched him 
I wondered if that’s how it’d be 
Saying I love you when I still couldn’t fucking breath 

I called you many years later saying her name 
And you told me you didn’t understand, it was a phase 
Oh, I wish I had been braver when she held my hand 
If love is a phase then a phase is what I am 

Coming out was never coming home 
Running away from the things I had known 
We didn’t know that our backpacks were filled with the bullshit 
We didn’t know until we tried to fix it 

Coming out was never coming home 
Running away from the things I had known

We didn’t know until we tried to fix it

come here and let me hug you

@dreamfirebombs-spitanthrax

I’d love to take a rain check on that because hugs are awesome we all deserve them!
But I’m also really busy
Too busy to hug?
What a sad world we live in.

Among many folk singers from the west, queer artist Porch Cat stands out with many releases ranging from easy listening dark folk, to major key, fast folk punk.
They currently play in a “circus-folk-blues” influenced project called The Ragshakers based out of Portland, Oregon busking their way down the coast and playing with prominent artists of the American folk punk scene such as Billy Mack Collector.
Porch Cat has just released their newest album “Heartlines.” It is a five-song release filled with the sweet sounds of contemporary folk and mostly bittersweet lyrics.
 A good example of this would be the title track of the album. The second verse reads:

            Cut my hair and not my arms
Don’t forget to look at the stars
There’s so much that I should have said
While I was laying, bleeding in that bed

I’d be a fool to say I knew exactly what this meant but to me this sounds of hope and turning something around but still acknowledging the terror they have been through. Part of the concluding chorus wraps up the song with the line, “Take all the time trying to figure out your heartlines and how to love and be alive.”
 I’d be willing to bet Porch Cat is spreading a message about getting better.
 This album spoke to me, and probably many others across the states. Please listen to this album. I suggest you buy it. You may already know this, but being a folk punk artist is one of the worst paying jobs in the world and there aren’t many breaks.
In closing, Porch Cat released another damn good album, and I’m glad they exist.

 With this particular Almost Halloween Time Records cassette, I actually am probably going to try and put the artwork for it in a frame and up on my wall.    I really feel like this one especially needs to be there.   When I was bigger into folk punk, I had heard of I Kill Cameron, I just haven’t really heard this music in a while as I’ve not been searching the “folk punk” tag on Bandcamp as much as I perhaps used to.
       The thing about I Kill Cameron is that as innocent as this music sounds and might seem at times, it also has an edge to it that can be filled with such anger.   It reminds me of that one psycho ex-girlfriend we have all probably had who will be ready to stab you with a kitchen knife one moment and then laughing their ass off the next.
       For wrestling fans, this is the folk punk version of AJ Lee.
       One song does actually end with laughter and it does sound somewhat maniacal to me.   In another song, she stops singing and says she messed up and wants to start over.   It isn’t so much a reflection of the raw nature of the recording so much as the… umm… unstable qualities of the artist.        Let me say this about the music of I Kill Cameron and it will reflect my feelings of the artist on the whole.   This is really good and I enjoy it immensely.  I wish this young woman was my friend.   But at the same time, she just does NOT seem like someone you ever want to be on the bad side of and I rarely say that of people.  -raisedbygypsies
