about

After releasing three albums of song oriented indiepop, this collection was originally intended to be a standalone project of sparser folk material. Focusing on different instrumental textures (acoustic guitar, organs, drones, quiet percussion), song fragments, both vocal and instrumental, this current song list collects the best of the original three 'Absinthe' discs (Absinthe Twilight, Absinthe Mourning, and The Flowers Of Evil).

"Pure isolationism, no time to party, - it is a melancholic cycle of ambient melodies, a continuous quiet poetic introspection, - lonely bedroom atmospheres, the stars in a clear nocturnal sky - relaxing and silently are the reading key of these little gems, - where their strenght is marked by their own mesmerising beauty." -Komakino

Track Name: Autumn Hill
I’m going down
An autumn hill
A shade that's falling
Warm winds calling
I went down
An autumn hill
Shadows in corners
Maybe you could stay
Hearts tremble now
Lights fading out
Twilight is coming
Lights fading fast
I went down
Track Name: Nocturne #3
The blankets of a setting sun
Close to tears that disappear
A million miles away from one
Chance of sleep tonight
Lay awake to count the stars
That come out wide eyed

The light that flutters on the wall

Slowly moving closer to the door
Like a lazy wave
That drags itself to shore
And voices in the hall
Whisper all the different ways
They think a star could fall

The light that flutters on the wall
Track Name: Candle
I watched a dream
Disappear today
Like a storm swept sea
The tide has turned away

You're a candle in the rain
A warm hope's embrace
Footsteps to trace
In wonder

I’ve wandered the stars
The sky is open now
Dawn breaks awake
Behind your eyes a smile

That slides like a sea
It rolls up inside
The same cold terrain
That dear, I’ve seen, I believe
Track Name: Shroud
Here are eyes that follow you
The silence through the hall
Near the light late afternoon
Its dying soon
The wall's the gravesite
I thought I saw darkened figure
Coming closer to deliver
Arms outstretched the nightmare's swimming
Lights collide
the stars are dimming
Bless your sweet eyes
Covered now
It's coming down
The shroud
Track Name: Here Comes The Storm
Here comes the storm
Here comes the storm
Clouds roll in
Warm rain begins
Here comes the storm
Here comes the storm
Track Name: Winter Year
The nights are getting longer dear
The evening light will disappear
Will you sing us a song
Before the light is gone?

The nights are getting colder here
Brings another winter year
Will you sing us a song
Before the day is done?
Track Name: The Half Light
All the day
Circle light
around your dress like a son
He's gone away
To let you find
It’s hide and seek and you're the one

Like a ship of waves
Or a tail of nine lives
Nothing left to save

Quiet makes
The way you feel precise
In the crush of perfect warmth
Fragile takes
Of flashing light
Signals from a distant storm

The sky in the half light
Last breath left to breathe
Everything is all right
