are you happy are you free will you come home to me

by Vlor

are you free 00:48


Vlor originally formed in the early 1990s as a typical high school alternative band of the era (though doing covers of Bauhaus & The Cure instead of Nirvana & Pearl Jam). It's second incarnation a few years later was shoegaze built around acoustic guitars with members Brian John Mitchell & Russell Halasz. The third incarnation started in 2006 & has been a series of long distance collaborations with Mitchell sharing minimalist songs to be built up by friends.
On the 5 songs in 5 minute EP "are you happy are you free will you come home to me" the members of the project are Brian John Mitchell, Martin Newman, Philip Polk Palmer, Brian McKenzie, & Michael Wood. Starting with a string of pieces recorded in Mitchell's condemned teenage home using a broken guitar & autoharp left there years before, the lyrical content is by Michael Wood about his cat. Enter the nostalgia & feel at home.
