vulgar mouth 03:02
You look good in a suit, you said While I imagined you undressed Geometry elegant My filthy thoughts, your simple dress Coming out of the bar I was as steady as a tremor, girl The consummate gentleman, a reckless drunk, subtle as fuck Come on, come on and kiss my vulgar mouth In the light through the blinds you lift your shirt and shift from clothes to skin Geometry elegant My filthy thoughts are colorless
Contact, radio makes contact To the southern reaches of the northern states Power out Halogen burns low now The electric speeches of the wires die out Then the humming mind Startled by quiet Sharp as a sudden swim in icy water Elevator light Cubicle mine I was enthralled by the appalling quiet Contrast, in the office, contrast Steady hands make missteps No one notices Phantom gentlemen make comments Float behind your desk chair and Rattle paperclips Then the humming mind Hardened by time Numb as a fencepost in the winter ground Salivating choir Funeral pyre Humming soprano with my shoes untied
honest men 02:39
In a tiny glass I can dive from half a mile up For a vicious crowd Prop my head in lion jaws On the western coast In a suit and coat You can count the honest men You are gracious, girl To allow me what I please When the money's right I'll Slip my dress above my knees In a bed of ghosts Moving slow and close Like the brush of snow on skin
moving parts 03:16
The body stands in motion The body knows the truth The knotted shoulders bunch up Heat in the moving parts The printer's daughter clenches her teeth at night She curses in her sleep The knotted jawline ground shut Heat in the moving parts
Lay that heart on the polished steel The butcher's boy knows that the body is A system of wires and reels Simple parts, no less graceful for it Confidence of an idiot Tower crane sway like a cattail We climbed at night and faced east And we saw the suburb glow and then the black of the sea
We don't move, we just talk it to death Keep our hands to ourselves Inarticulate bastards of men We don't move, we just watch through the cracks Phantom limbs, phantom girls behind glass In the dim light the wires climb unchecked The brightest minds of kensington tech The brightest signs on highway exits


Recorded and written in the empty penthouses of an unfinished high-rise above downtown Seattle. Working a normal office job and sneaking around like a cat burglar in unoccupied apartments at night. Eventually the building filled up and I started irritating the neighbors, so the recording was brought to a halt. senses sensei is the result of all the late night sneaking around.

yesper Seattle, Washington

yesper is a box with strings, one pair of hands, a mouth and a mic. Seattle is home now, but I still miss Virginia from time to time. i make records by myself because i'm afraid of commitment. i make records in secret so that they'll sound mysterious. i make records.
