  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    Limited edition of 75 signed and numbered hand-made packages, each absolutely unique. Beautiful vinyl-look CD (with tactile grooves) tucked into a recycled paper sleeve hand-stamped on both sides with metallic pigment inks, and wrapped up in a recycled Kraft sleeve eco-dyed by hand with hi-desert flora and rusted metal objects gathered from the landscape that brought these songs to life. Follow @artemis_music on Instagram to see time-lapse videos of each step of the making of these little treasures. Images shown here are *examples* of works in progress - further/alternate embellishments may be made, and no two will look exactly alike. Check back for more images! Also, because each element is lovingly hand-crafted, your one-of-a-kind CD package may be blessed with its own tiny flaws and imperfections, just like all of us. Handle with care and enjoy!

lyrics

staring into Janus eyes
crouched down in the middle
fire cracking the sky
compliments of monkeys
and their missiles
your god and mine
got our head in a vice
made of greed
and avarice
no mother tongue
no chosen ones
we're equally flawed
and precious

light and shadow
filed for divorce
but pulling apart they'd
cease to exist
so we still gotta find
ourselves in each other
to the slow decline of stars in the lid
for all our hyperconnectivity
we're better at tin cans and string
so i'll meet you my friend
in ten billion years
galactic address of Milkomeda

watch heaven twist her lips
into wry coyote smile
love is a dare
devil may care
this may take awhile

free will is a knife
cuts both ways
we take the sting
to get the honey
they say living hard
living's easy
til you risk all
you're merely surviving
but oh how we cling to our stories
for our very lives
while human laws fossilize

watch heaven twist her lips
into wry coyote smile
love is a dare
devil may care
this may take awhile

about

Artemis San Francisco

Spectral keyboard washes and sinuous dance beats set up a feeling of warm alienation while Artemis’s voice heats things further. Over the thump and shimmer, she croons with detached fervor, the music dissolving in a storm of pixie-dust disco until a rude riot of effects snaps the tether and she vanishes. ... more
