    West My Friend's third album, with artwork by Sarah Clement. Produced by David Travers-Smith.

    "One of the sweetest and most elegant folk albums released this year... "
    - The Georgia Straight

    "Quiet Hum makes a mockery of the ‘difficult third album’ notion, instead cementing West My Friend’s place in Canada’s modern folk elite. It is an outstanding release and their most moving material to date, yet only four years since their debut it feels like West My Friend are still gathering speed, with plenty more innovative Cascadian third-wave indie prog chamber folk-roots music set to be unveiled in years to come."
    - David Morrison, Folk Radio UK

Music and lyrics by Julia Easterlin.

lyrics

Standing on the corner with my jacket on
It’s been raining and raining the sky is falling down
No don’t you worry about my umbrella I don’t need it
I’ve got a paper in my pocket and I’m waiting for the taxi to come
And I told the driver

Go straightaway
I’ve got to meet my lover at the station
I’ll give him a kiss and we’ll be gone for good
Go straightaway

I’ve got to meet my lover at the station
Don’t tell nobody, this is just between me and you

I know you’ll think it’s crazy but I have to do it
I’ve been waiting and waiting and now I’ve got to try
I said I love him, oh yes you heard me right
Now I can’t deny it
I’ve got a letter and I’m sending it to anybody who wants to know
That I told the driver

Hush your mouth, close your eyes
I’ve got a big surprise
Careful words, perfect timing
