This is the debut EP from new Seattle-based indie folk group, BRITE LINES. It features a "single" from their forthcoming full-length record and four older demos, tracked at a home studio in Olympia, WA.

The title, “Make Shift,” refers both thematically to the stories of the songs within (metamorphoses of sorts) and the nature of the recordings (having spanned years, collaborators, and locales.)

Track Name: The Darkest Woods
Well, I never have been more scared of anything in my whole life than of the ghosts that have shown up here. Real or imagined, it's clear they are haunting you. Don't shed your power or discard your love at the hands of the ghosts that have shown up here, for those spooks ain't got nothing that you can't see through.

So walk along that winding path to see what things might come. Be not afraid of front or back, I promise you, my love, that sometimes in the darkest woods our minds turn shadows to things no good. And the ghosts that we have picked up on the way think they have a say in the decisions that we may or may not make, pleading, "Don't you take a left here, that left is a mistake!" But don't you be mislead, dear, don't you be mislead, dear, don't you be mislead, dear, their seduction you must shake!

You've made it pretty far, my love, and made this new man your best. But sometimes the ghosts wail your name when you close your eyes to rest. They shout out loud your deepest fears. It's shrillness makes you clutch your ears with every ounce of energy you've got. Your stomach, tied in knots, is telling you that you've got to push on through. Saying, "Listen to my pal, your heart, tonight." And be sure that you don't let the dark blot out your light...
