    A physical CD of the "Maiden" EP from the "Maiden, Mother, Crone" trilogy.
    The final EP in the "Maiden, Mother, Crone" trilogy of EPs. First 50 copies sold on pre-order will be signed and numbered. All other copes will be signed.

    The "Maiden, Mother Crone" trilogy looks at pagan imagery within modern narratives on women.

    THE MAIDEN
    The Maiden is an emergent character - only allowed to "be" in a context of innocence and naivity. Her battle is to become what she is, despite any negative judgements over what are considered transgressions from the archetype (naivity, innocence, nascent sexuality).

    THE MOTHER
    The Mother character wrestles with balancing societal expectation with what she herself wants from her life. She is the character society often feels completely entitled to judge, touch, and regulate. As a result she is the moral body and struggles with both external assessment and with what to do when her attempts to do what is expected of her not work out as planned.

    THE CRONE
    "The Hag", or Crone was once seen as wise, but the elderly today are often simply marginalised or overlooked entirely. The "Crone"'s invisibility however, has another side. She can be as political as she likes, and many of her songs are just that. The Crone is more outside the gaze of what is expected of women (attractiveness), compared to the other two figures, so is allowed to speak her mind. It is a voice within her voicelessness , and an identity that she herself has some power to construct.

    More information on the background and mythology behind the album is available on Jordan's blog here.

    NOTE: if you are in New Zealand or Australia, this EP will be available via Powertool Records (also on bandcamp) as of April 27 2015. You can order from them to save on postage, but the copies won't be signed.

about

A song about an odd and masogynistic man who finds a woman on his doorstep after a storm. He decides to keep her through manipulation rather than direct force.

lyrics

She came down from the sky when the storm left her broken
and open and bleeding for me.
And when God sends you gifts, you should use them with pleasure
and treasure what lands in your reach.

When she woke under covers too cold to be hers
she had eyes like two torches of fire
and her nails and her teeth would have helped in her struggle
if her wounds hadn't rendered her mine.

"You're no captive" I told her
and I showed her the door
which stood open as leaves blew in through.
Cos when people beleive it's their own path they've chosen
they won't see their cage for the view.

Oh but you know women these days
They're as fickle as they are immeasuable
And a man is a man
when his fate's in his hands
and his grasp is as hard as it is invisble

So why do ask if it's greener outside
when I've showed you the flowers through your window?
And where is the thanks for the promise I made
to protect you from all that is cold in a hard world?

Well she smiled, I beleive
and I combed out her hair
and I prayed that her thoughts would turn grateful
Then I rang out her blood so she'd know that she's bled
and be dead if not grateful for rescue

Oh but you know women these days
They're as fickle as they are immeasuable
And a man is a man
when his fate's in his hands
and his grasp is as hard as it is invisble

I've told you we'll go
and tomorrow will come
with tomorrows tomorrow in toe.
Let it go, little girl
there's a hole in the world.
And they'll tear you apart if you go.
I'll tear you apart if you go.
You'll tear me apart if you go.
