Into the Void Tour Tracks, by Ginger Alford
My friend Ginger recorded three songs for a tour-travel of Europe she is currently on. I helped with some vocals and piano on the first track, “On the Ice,” a ‘fictional’ song in which our protagonist considers loneliness and meaning while living and working in Antarctica. Heart, heart, heart.

During March / April of this year I recorded four songs under the guise GREAT HEALTH in my living room on W. 9th St.
It has now manifested as a split cassette tape called IMAGINARY ORDER w/ my old pal ANDY GARDNER.
The ever wonderful PAT CRANN at Shout Out Loud Prints put out the cassette, which you can purchase on SOL’s web site HERE.
Download the songs for free HERE (zip), and the accompanying zine HERE (pdf).
THANK YOU FOR BEING ALIVE, HEART.
