"We exist in between the spaces, winning cancelled races before they begin."
Florist 07:13
"Does a florist dream flowers in spring, and does the butcher see blood in the changing trees?"
"Time is an abstraction I just can't embrace."
Scuzzy 02:34
"Impressions fade but what remains is the scent of you on my skin and the thought of you on my brain as the twilight fades."
"Summer ended without you today. I sat and stood and paced, orbiting the places where you stood..."
"What were three things that you really wanted in your life?"
You Again? 06:01
"If the stars love the night, so the sun fills the sky. Where the trees meet the soil, there the wind finds the sea again."


Quiet! works to redefine the rock concept album with Lotus Flowers, a song cycle which depicts in music, a year in the life of a lonely flower shop keeper. Featuring two songs for each passing season, it's a sonic love letter to the expansive sounds of the late 60's/ early 70's. Lotus Flowers was captured on 2 inch tape at Portland, OR's Old Standard Sound.


released May 1, 2014

Songs and production by Chris Read. Engineered by Justin Higgins, Cover Art by Justine Todd and Matt Blanks.
