Stacked up by the hand of glory

Blau's words are Teacher's
My wireless was on the fritz this morning, so I’ve had to work out of a Starbucks all day. To drown out the blaring mix of Mumford & Sons and Norah Jones, I’ve been listening to My Words Are Yours, the new album from Apollo Ghosts frontman Adrian Teacher. The ultra lo-fi collection was made using free lyrics posted online by songwriter Karl Blau.

Below, you can download the song “Come Home Sailor,” which is the opening track. It’s mostly just a solo acoustic performance, but there are some vocal harmonies and twinkling guitar overdubs that create a gorgeously peaceful atmosphere.

Go to the Georgia Straight to read my interview with Teacher and get a download link for the album.
