A tiny stone plunging in the water - creating a small *tap* when it hits larger stones at the bottom of the pond. A snake rubbing its head against one stone to remove the old skin. Excess weight. Before the molting process, a snake will hide away and refrain from eating. A quietness must surround the body before the voices swirl inside of it.
Voices swirling inside the body. Nomadic - wild - restless - fleeting. I wish to express all feelings about this album in these words but they rest in these songs. The region of no words but senses. No sentences. Smooth baby skin is revealing itself with each new day, flaking off the mortal layer of the past.

Gratitude to Christina, JD, and Nico Burress for the unending support, 1st (2nd, 3rd, etc.) draft listenings, and providing space for me to stretch out my limbs and record this album for three months, Adam Howard for listening to Ecdysis' many stages with detailed, generous, inquisitive, empathetic ears and heart, Devon Rawlings for the centering conversations and standing alongside as a sister, Johanna Warren for creating a record label HOME for this one and so many beautiful artists and their releases.
Generations before for their artistry and healing, returning ocean tide for its relentless comforting, children for their lessons in freedom and pure creativity, and the swooping wind that cradles the bodies of many...for its song that is always worth listening.
