    We proudly present Soft Verges in a signed-and-numbered limited vinyl edition! Much of Soft Verges was tracked live at Chicago's legendary Electrical Audio; then lush-sounding 180-gram vinyl was cut directly from the original tape for a completely analog listening experience. The whole thing is wrapped in a holographic foil-embossed jacket designed by Black Sea's Justin Lloyd. Only 300 copies of this edition exist; each one is hand-signed and numbered by Michael Bassett and Justin Lloyd and comes polybagged in crystal-clear archival mylar.

lyrics

and we drift around the sun
it’s still
and we round and round

at the corner
take your place
the city moans
the ground shakes

traffic moves through time and space
green amber red
your moments fade

the earth curves and spins away
a pirouette
the points change

the signal regulates the flow
the pushing faces come and go

strangers in converging streets
go brushing by
but you will wait

a smooth ellipse across the source
the bodies move
the light is caught
and while you wait for open road
a tiny night is coming home

the shadow of this passing day
will meet you on the curb again
