dearest listener, 

Braids will be released on friday, march 9th. 

in the meantime, you can hear the single for "while i'm away" at the music link.  
i wrote "while i'm away" about a decade ago. though i have tried to record my own versions before, none had been released, until today! a version has been recorded and released by my friend, Jeremy Quentin, it is on his 2015 record, "Still Talk; Second City." 
the b-side, "he didn't look like me," was written a few years ago after i misheard the lyrics of an old country song, i don't remember what song it was.
