Bronson My Idle Bed
Like so many love stories gone awry, so this one goes, boy meets girl, boy falls instantly in love. That affection is not reciprocated, but misconstrued as so.

Shortly before leaving to Anacortes he proposed, and she suggested that they never see one another. The next day Everman entered the freezing studio awash with malaise, which resulted in him cutting over half of his prepared material, and recording anew on the spot. After four days of recording he decided to compile footage of his once love and prepare a few short films set to the music he had just recorded, which have just been released here;
