about

THE GARDEN is my second solo album of 2019.

It follows my first release DEER AND THE SNOW, which is a ambient folk album dedicated to exploring my inner wintery landscape and relationship with self.

THE GARDEN is a beat-diver, electronic tribute to my wild summers of turbulent love and lust over the last twenty plus years. It is the harvest of my relationship struggles past and present, and an ode to the confusing process of navigating my bodily and heart-filled desires within the oppressive confines of a monogamous and shame-based over-culture as a person in a female body.

These songs are earnest expressions of my sexual and sensual authenticity, my real life fantasies come true, my unrequited heartbreaks, my shroud of shame, and my self-actualized redemption into my own garden of earthly delights - into which you all are invited to play with me.

I want to sincerely thank all my lovers throughout time for being my most humbling of teachers.
Huge thank you to all my friends, family, and healing community for seeing me through the messy ups and downs.
And as always, thank you to all of you who listen and support my art. Especially all of you rebel witches and sluts out there who are trying to live your best lives. I hope you make out (and more) to this album. Please dance to it naked whenever possible.
Let us together raise the ancient temples of pleasure once more.
This is the magic I am casting here.
May it be oh so good. And so it is.

about

Scinnlaece Minneapolis, Minnesota

Scinnlæce means "witch", or more accurately "veiled healer", in Old English.
I chose this name for my artistic project, because I am indeed a witch and healer interested in the unseen worlds.

All my songs are healing spells - and enchantments.

Thank you for your support. xo

Track Name: Time
do you know how the story goes?
when we show up we learn so much
there’s still so much that we don’t know
how to hold it close
how to let it go
radiant child
we created life
and we are tied together forever in time
maybe it’s time

when you go away I go away too
and we exist in our separate spaces
when I return you return too
let’s appreciate all of our different faces
let’s live our lives
what we want and what we don’t want
we decide
and the truth exists somewhere in the mix
and it’s alright
no matter what
it’s alright
when there’s love
Track Name: Spider
you you you you
we both knew
we both knew
we both knew
that this life
that this time
that this round
would take me down
with your soft belly and your soft eyes
you’d undress me from my disguise
you you you
won’t accept no lies
you you you
down between my thighs
you you you
as the spiral winds
you you you
as the spiders bite
you you you

and your words went right into me
arrows marked
and now I bleed
like a cardinal in the treetops I sing
of a garden where we are free
of a garden where we are free
we are free

dim the lights
you talk
monday night
8’clock
and the magic we created we gave her a name
and then my blood came
and she ran ran down my leg
you you you
felt me break
you you you
kept me straight
you you you
on the dock by the lake
you you you
curse of fate

and your words went right into me
arrows marked
and now I bleed
like a cardinal in the treetops I sing
of a garden where we are free
of a garden where we are free
we are free
Track Name: Tides
a distant draw and I wanna dive in
fighting the tides of conflict
intensify the push and pull
and twist up my heart
so skillful
total control
play to win
it all drops away
give me the tunnel vision
moment of truth
and we pick up speed
all past regrets
all wash clean

hold up now let's take a step back
it's coming around a little too fast
the curves are steep and the drop is high
let's just breath and give it time
let's just be and let's just try
and we will see when we close our eyes
we’re the sea
we’re the tides
no in between
it’s only light
Track Name: Parallel world
I’m so ready
to get down
don’t hold back
my magic powers
something for later
your body on mine
my god
those thighs
how much I need you
as slow as I can
I still do
another chance
your scent
on my clothes the next day
long moment to remember
well baby
I’m here
I’m not going to lie
your deep voice in my ear
I’ll make you feel right

and just get crazy
total honesty

I wouldn’t have stopped
I wanted it all
I was doomed
you stood up so damn tall
I almost lost my mind
you were right there
it was so easy
my hands everywhere
I have a weakness
parallel world
soft sweet center
it’s too damn good
every inch
turn me out
on the floor
all your power
not everyone can say
it makes life worth living
one day I’m going to take it
and you won’t know which way is up
the hottest thing I’ve ever held
my ultimate
surrender to your world
Track Name: Melt away
love is most nearly itself
when the here and now is all that matters
can we put it high upon the shelf?
can we climb down from the ladder?
and we gave our word
we said let's do what's right
won't let the colors blur
gotta keep within the lines
but are we sure
do we believe the lie
how will we endure
what lives inside

love is most nearly itself
when the here is all that matters
can we put it high upon the shelf?
can we climb down from the ladder?

and it was like no time had passed
since we were together last
right back where we began
oh how we both dove right in
but then tomorrow came
and in floods the pain
oh baby you know it just aint the same
when we're in each other's arms
we just melt away
we just melt away
we just melt away
we just melt away

love
is nearly itself
when the here and now
Is all that matters
can we put it high upon the shelf?
can we climb down from the ladder?

love is nearly itself
when the here and now
Is all that matters
can we put it high upon the shelf?
can we climb down from the ladder?
and melt away
we just melt away
we just melt away
we just melt away
Track Name: In the wings
oh my love you're in the air
on the sheets and in my hair
as I let you in you take me there
once again how we dared
oh my love this is our life
it's up to us to decide
can we walk in darkness and in light?
how much do we fight?

oh my love I want you to know that I see you
I won't go nowhere
never leave you
oh even though this is the path we must walk down
I'm right by your side
I'm here
can you feel me now?

oh my love I'm in the wings
cast in shadow smiling
all in black wearing the ring
as I watch you laughing

oh my love I want you to know that I see you
I won't go nowhere
never leave you
oh even though this is the path we must walk down
I'm right by your side
I'm here
can you feel me now?
Track Name: Halls of the heart
not a day goes by
where I don’t have to try
each moment rolls away
here i stay
don’t matter what we did
or who you think I am
or who I think you are
or why we let it go so far
can you feel the weight?
as we reach through the space
don’t matter the space
this love will escape
oh the love will escape

every morning I rise
I look into my own eyes
to my reflection I say what I need
baby go anyway you please
and my heart expands
shattering all my plans
I want to pull you in
skin to skin
and begin again
where do we go?
when we’re so close
where do we start?
where we’re lost in the halls of the heart

can you feel the weight?
as we reach through the space
don’t’ matter the space
this love will escape
oh the love will escape
where do we go?
when we’re so close
where do we start?
where we’re lost in the halls of the heart
Track Name: Finish me
I don’t want to be your friend
I just want to do that again
you slide in and you slide out
I go up and I come down
I don’t want to be your friend
I just want to do that again
you slide in and you slide out
I go up and I come down

and you can finish me
any way you please
and you can finish me
any way you please

kick my thighs up over you
I square my hips so you can feel me move
quench your thirst with my juice
it’s so good you want to bite into it
kick my thighs up over you
I square my hips so you can feel me move
quench your thirst with my juice
it’s so good you want to bite into it

and my legs and your hands everywhere
make me shake, take me right here
and my legs and your hands everywhere
make me shake, take me right here

I don’t want to be your friend
I just want to do that again
you slide in and you slide out
I go up and I come down
I don’t want to be your friend
I just want to do that again
you slide in and you slide out
I go up and I come down

and you can finish me
any way you please
and my legs and your hands everywhere
make me shake, take me right here
Track Name: Bad girl
I’m a bad girl
I’m a bad girl
I’m a bad girl
I’m a bad girl

I’m a bad girl
I’m a bad girl
I’m a bad girl
I’m a bad girl

I’m a bad girl
I’m a bad girl
I’m a bad girl
I’m a bad girl

I’m a bad girl
I’m a bad girl
I’m a bad girl
I’m a bad girl

pulled away from your touch
into the arms of another I run
let them say what they want
they don’t know where I come from
what’s this thing we call truth?
how do we put it to the best use?
I want to be here with you now
what if I just don’t know how

cuz I’m a bad girl
I’m a bad girl
I’m a bad girl
I’m a bad girl

I’m a bad girl
I’m a bad girl
I’m a bad girl
I’m a bad girl

I’m a bad girl
I’m a bad girl
I’m a bad girl
I’m a bad girl

I’m a bad girl
I’m a bad girl
I’m a bad girl
I’m a bad girl

do you really want to know it all?
would you catch my words or let them fall?
in my walk of shame would you have me crawl?
what if I claim to stand tall?
would you take it all?
cast me out like some kind of animal?
here I am as an animal
I’m wild and I’m scratchin at your door
when you let me in we’ll explore
when you let me go I’ll give you more
you want to hear me roar?
my back against the floor?

I know that you’re scared
so am I
we both want to get there
to where it feels right
without all these tears
and long lonely nights
it’s not over yet
and I haven’t left
no it’s not over yet
and you haven’t left

I’m a bad girl
I’m a bad girl
I’m a bad girl
I’m a bad girl

I’m a bad girl
I’m a bad girl
I’m a bad girl
I’m a bad girl

I’m a bad girl
I’m a bad girl
I’m a bad girl
I’m a bad girl

I’m a bad girl
I’m a bad girl
I’m a bad girl
I’m a bad girl
