RottingChris Worth listening and grabbing this piece of dark acoustic folk. I also like amara's art. Hopefully there will be a physical release in the future. Enchanting. Thank you guys! Favorite track: solace.
Cultureplastic thumbnail
Cultureplastic Folk music on the darker side. More appealing to people with a darker more realistic perspective on life, civilization, and the world as we currently now know it. Favorite track: the well.

do you hear the oaks call with your knees to the ground gathering promises with little shells of brown blistered hands fire’s keeper the memories are somewhere deeper body frail heart still holding the courage take your path is chosen i am your blood and i will sing, i’ll sing to you across the dark waters as you take your place in the sky you are my blood and you will sing, you’ll sing to me across the dark waters from your place with the stars we are one at the festival of friends in the winds and on our knees

in the woods. i found. i found you smiling, from behind those fallen logs that you've been talking to. ask me what it's like to die. to give in. death is just a breath. an inhalation. of life.
the well 08:23
I called out to the west, all the water fell down... on the prairies, and highways on the ocean, ships that sail on the mountains, through gravel caves on the rocks and lichen and again, and again, and again nothing lasts long, but the grass grew so tall everything comes down and the wind moves mounds drop the stones into the ocean the well, the well from the highest cliffs to climb fall, fall
solace 08:13
in the moments i awake in the moments a breath i take of solace in my body the pain stays in my voice my breath a way to solace a cry from the river bed under the dark to break the cycle of calm alarm witness there's a warning sign outside the door, rise a shut it out. balance broke. the heart attack. cancer marks the throat. sickness. there is no plan to fall back on. there is no plan to fall.


recorded at tiny telephone with jacob winik.
mastered at chicago mastering services by matthew barnhart.
art work by amara hollowbones.

"My friends Inle elni just released an AMAZING record called The Deep Well. Listen to it, it makes me cry and laugh. These folks make very full, meaningful sounds with few acoustic instruments and a paired down set up, really poetic and catchy song writing with unconventional structures, haunting 3 part harmonies, and more. For me, the content captures the urgency as well as the timelessness and presence of the struggles we face in this time and place on our earth, and through that captures the imminent beauty as well. Fucking good shit." -Mars Goetia
