    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

lyrics

The sleep on your brow, the still of your smile
Are two of a few on this list I compile
The bend of your knees the stick of your back

All these things I love to polish and keep
To tuck in and ponder in my sleep
To tuck in and ponder in sleep what dreams may come
What dreams may come?

And even when gravity helps you pull the blankets from myself
It still makes the list with kisses, warmth and eyelashes
Slipping from their assigned places
And a woven imprint: the musk of yesterday’s thoughts
I hold them close yes
All these things in chests and boxes
Safe for keeping and revisiting

To tuck in and ponder in my sleep
To tuck in and ponder in sleep what dreams may come
What dreams may come?
What fishhooks to polish and keep?
What dreams may come?
