WFR014: Morgan Shaker: Flat (CD-R)

Take a real head trip. Sip on this tall drink drip. Drop your nikes, look deeply into your psyche. If you’ve ever been down, been kicked around, seen the darker side of towne, well come on down. We’ve all got our own ‘Flats’ and sure we woulda tried to pull em all off the shelves too. Ain’t nothing to look at here, nothing to be ashamed of, keep on walkin, burn a new hole in old shoes. Sleep it off, tomorrow’s another mourning. Hang your head, keep your chin-ups. Deeper folkier wisdoms from a down sequoia. This album is an offering of blubber from a beached whale. Light your future paths.
