a review

The haunting high range of Portland-based musician Marc Manning’s vocals, coupled with the rustic production quality of his most recent EP, Air in the Trees, gives the record a feeling of polite distance and mild inaccessibility. The music is thread together in a way that lets it exist all around you and nowhere around you at the same time, like a hovering blanket. Track four, “The Woods,” is a perfect example of Manning’s blanket of sound, with its hollow, subtle whistling behind the distorted guitar and bleeding vocals. Beyond being incredibly beautiful, this song seems to emerge from the organic spaces of the Northwest. If I believed in heart strings, I would tell you that Manning is pulling every one of them, collectively, like an orchestra. Instead, I will just say that this song makes me want to walk alone until I stop crying. About what, you ask? I’m not sure.

Track Name: air in the trees
"air in the trees"
air in the trees
bloodied up knees
light shines down
shines down
walk in the door
keys on the floor
lights all the lights are out
riding in trains
riding in vane
we sleep don't we sleep don't we
Track Name: U.G.
"U.G."
oh can it be
the spoon is bending for me
its plain as can be
where everyone can see
that it bends for me
for me

tracks in the woods
and they lead where they should
and it makes my day
prayers in the dark
lead to one single spark
and it lights the way
lights the way
lights the way

can it be
the spoon is bending for me
its plain as can be
and everyone can see
that it bends for me
for me

tracks in the woods
and they lead where they should
and it makes my day
prayers in the dark lead to on single spark
and it lights the way
lights the way
lights the way
Track Name: glass
"glass"
that crash was really something
should we count all the pieces of glass
all over the ground
seems a stranger broke in the house
and he's gone thru all your things
and taken what's good
while you were sleeping
or too scared to move
praying for this to please
pass you by
in the window
next door
the old lady stands
naked as the day
she was born
Track Name: the woods
"the woods"
on this blackest night
my window is bright
it holds you gaze
your eyes shining bright
in the forrest tonight

your tree climbing claws
your big drunken smile
holds teeth so bright
reflecting the light
in the forrest tonight

what a terrible sight
for the next passer by
but my spirit is light
its rocketing high
in the forest tonight
Track Name: storms
"storms"
storms on its way
storms on its way
all big and black
3 terrible dreams
about the lightning its bringing
storms on its way

evil moonlight
on the blades of grass
i had 3 bad dreams
about the lightning its bringing
storms on its way
Track Name: moon light is bright
"moonlight is bright"
the woods have eyes
and so do i
the path leads us down
the darkest way
so out of the way
we put on our show
the insects bight
the dimming light
we breath down fumes
our eyes grow wide
reflecting light
in beams like a searchlight

moonlight is bright
tonight
a bright light
like a searchlight
a bright white light
tonight
a bright white light

this grove of trees
at night time breathes
gives cover to thieves
signals from a dim lit flame
dot the woods and stake our claim

moonlight is bright
tonight
a bright light
like a search light
a bright white light
tonight
a bright white light
like a searchlight
a bright white light
