Lyrics: Black Moss
Fear is the weight we carry
from the cradle straight to our graves,
and love is the treasure we bury;
pain alternates with pleasure in beautiful waves
and you’ve been watching me —
you say I emanate some strange magnetic power,
but don’t be drawn to me;
I may be here today, but soon black moss will cover
over my dead body.
You’ve been a lot of places —
left me forgotten by your side —
and maybe the feeling’s baseless,
but something still stirs in me when I look in your eyes,
‘cause you’ve been kind to me;
I never quite believed you when you said it’s over.
Well what is wrong with me?
I trusted you — you watched me open like a flower
over my dead body.Bandcamp: http://johannawarren.bandcamp.com/album/n-m-n

♦ “Lush and soothing, nūmūn doesn’t settle for uncomplicated beauty. Warren wields the pleasant timbre of her voice and guitar to plumb deeper questions of human life, and how we as sentient beings can fit into a world where everything around us has its own will.”

♦ One of “4 Singer–Songwriters You Need to Know in 2015” — Rolling Stone Magazine
♦ One of the 50 Best New Bands of 2015 — Stereogum
♦ Among the “Best Albums of 2015” — The Portable Infinite
♦ “Like [Elliott] Smith, she’s interested in the depths of human relationships and the forces that can poison them unseen. She doesn’t lament the dissolution of romances and friendships, but attacks it like a puzzle.” — Consequence of Sound
♦ “…hauntingly sorrowful and beautifully optimistic” — Guild Guitars
♦ One of the “50 Best Albums of 2015 So Far” — Stereogum (June 2015)
♦ “More than an average ‘singer–songwriter’ turning out pretty by–the–numbers folk tunes, her music is sparse and complex all at once and her words are often colored with deeply vivid spiritual and mystical imagery” — The 405
♦ “It is clear that for Warren the act of creativity and spiritual healing are one and the same, and if that’s the case then nūmūn, an album as bewitching as it is ambitious, is certainly good for what ails you.” — Folk Radio UK
♦ “Rich in sensual language and meditative honesty” — Impose Magazine
♦ “…like thin white drapes letting dusty sun rays beam through.” — CMJ
♦ One of the “Best Portland Albums of 2015” — Oregon Live
♦ “Warren captures the serenity of feeling relatively insignificant with a wide, awestruck lens.” — Willamette Week
