    "Thomas Truax is a feisty dreamer gadgeteer, songwriter and performer...capable of crafting some very potent songs, such as the wistful 'In Barcelonely'...and 'The Butterfly and the Entomologist' on which Truax is joined by cellest Pete Harvey and violinist Meredith Yayanos (both of whom appear on other songs too, along with a few other players) is the perfect blend of his moodily manipulated instrumentation and oblique narratives. It's poetically evocative and rich with melancholy, both by dint of its sounds and the texts..."

lyrics

My wife had a dream

That I had a clone

And while I was away

The clone would keep her company

Upon my scheduled returns

The clone was programmed to go away

It went on like this for years

And we all lived happily...

But then one day came sad news

I'd had a fatal car crash...

Upon my scheduled return

The clone was programmed to go away

Upon my scheduled return

The clone was programmed to go away

But she didn't want it to

She didn't want it to...

about

Thomas Truax London, UK

"Thomas Truax crafts rich, poetically evocative songs about insects, trees, technology, and a lifelong obsession with all things lunar. He travels the world performing with his "band" of bizarre self-made instruments including a motorized drum machine made with bike wheels and a souped-up Gramophone called 'The Hornicator', as well as his venerable guitar 'Hank'.
