    CD made of black plastic with ridges on the top, meant to look like a tiny vinyl record with a donut label in the center. Comes in a cardboard sleeve featuring psychedelic artwork by Jack Bride, inspired by Dara's dream of a blissed-out unicorn pony listening to our music in the form of a donut on a toy record player in a majestic wonderland. the back has our Donut Heart logo, designed by Rah's awesome flatmate Marion Barry. DIY printed insert with lyrics, insights, thank-yous, and love.

this one goes out to all the mamas...


hey this looks familiar, I'm not really sure
but I get the sensation I've been here before
'cause time loops back around on a circular track
a hungry serpent biting itself in the ass

and I don't even know how I know that the donut is whole
and it's silver and spinning and everything in it is now

looking in the mirror across from my bed
whispers with the wisdom inside of my head
mountain mother child in the opposite skin
black and white and purple, the painting we're in

you can never escape from the toroidal shape of the sound
even though I'm missing my sister, I know that I'm with her somehow

we eat and breathe the signals from radio towers
then fart and cry it out, unaware of our powers
extract your inspiration from fossilized shit
your ancient grandmother will appreciate it!

will I rise, will I fall, standing tall, raise my arms to the wall
everyone, everything, everytime, I'm embracing it all
oh yeah...
