Lyrics to “Multiply”:

i stick out like a sore thumb when
i am myself but i’d rather see a lot of sore thumbs than all the ho-hum ho-hum
i got brains with a bright orange tan i’m a-carrying jelly beans enough for
everyone & i’ll still have some for myself ‘cause they multiply all that is
me i can be more

 

Morgan offered these words, about the Starfruit album (which you can check out
on Bandcamp
):

“this record is the theme music to a
universe. it was born over months & months of begging, deep in the bowels
of the home, underground in its basement, excavating echoes & running them
backward through reverb machines. dehydrated, hazy-eyed. craving fruit. into
the dim passed the offering of nine brilliant musicians, gamely entrusting a
house-recording experiment with their gorgeously crafted intonations. track by
track, a mouthwatering other-world reached into materialization, hovering a few
feet above some cheap microphones, a laptop,
& the pit of the stormy sea. only some of its characters are mortals; all
sport coquettish dance moves or baskets of pineapples. in this universe, it is
good etiquette to make friends with the unlikelies, & to serve them
yam-blood candy out of your ripped floral handbag. in this hopeful place, it is
customary to eat fruit in the shape of stars.”
