about

"Animals," the 9th full-length recording from Boston's Kurt von Stetten.

A man has a condition that allows him to forget his entire world every five minutes; as a result he feels like he knows everything (and hates it all) like a child. A woman describes the possible end of the world to her brother in the woods where they grew up. A boy leaves home to become an artist because he was already pre-destined to be poor and miserable (he is sorry). A man loses both arms while charged with securing arms for his troops in the civil war- his scout laughed at him and left him for dead. I had a fever dream when I was a child- the theme song from "three's company" was playing in the background. A group of boys decides not travel home after the last world war- they decide that this tree is probably as good as any a place to call home. A young man tries to get people to like him by throwing a "rager" at his house- he was picking broken beer bottles out of his lawn for weeks to come. Faith will dry your veins- especially for young artists. Math involves unbreakable theorems. Starting a family makes you think about very basic things. A young girl meditates and has random thoughts- it is ok though, because she feels "complete" now. You can talk all you want, young man, but you are still making pretty pictures. Thinking that you have special powers and having them are two very different things- just ask your daughters. People in positions of power say some really stupid things about life, religion, science, and leadership.
