Chris North’s Near Fall All We Are features lush recordings by the Chris North band and remixes by Many Mansions and Animal Hospital. The songs are dreamy cross-continental meditations on distance and love with Chris’ trademark earnest hopefulness providing the guiding light through the hazy, expansive landscape of sound he’s created. The remixes add an inner focus that lets the listener explore the levels of subconscious depth expressed in the songs. A truly comprehensive listening experience!

I can no longer prolong the greatest moment of my life. I cannot afford to be afraid of the long silence. Of the after after. The people that populate my bedroom have become too real. My option is every door, every sun and mountain of night. Our options are in people. Honest voices are doors. I have stopped trying to control the narrative. To prescribe the reality of self. Not sleep until ending. Not sleep until climax. I am awake now. I am awake now. I will stop trying to wake up and I will walk out the door and I will see in a way that listens. This moment will be a kingdom of yes simply in the naming. It was always a choice. It was always a way of seeing. I am in Paradise.

“…these aren’t coyly affectionate songs, these are jubilant hymns to the ecstatic, revelatory state of love [...] For me, it sounds like a high-up window letting in sounds from heaven which inspires reverence now.”
Grab a cup of mead, some energy crystals and huddle up next to your favorite goat for this festival of somber merriment. Two Voices is the finest coalescence of astral rock and renaissance folk by two modern day bards, Greg Sun (Manners) and Chris North (The Points North). This poppy lo-fi carousel weaves acoustic guitars through a meadow of instruments including flute, accordion, violin and cello, wrapping it all up nicely with magnetic tape at varying speeds.
