    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

There’s a ghost at the window but he’s not looking in
He’s a life of his own and he’s aiming to win
While his feet long for vale and the fond warmth within

There’s a camera that’s chasing each one of us around
And yours isn’t worried about me

There’s a phantom who’s writing the script for her day
All the things that they’re thinking, all the things they could say
While there’s a breeze in the willows that was sent just for her

There’s a playground of visions building castles of sand
They’re surveying and reaching for the height of the land
While there’s a friendship that’s stretching out a young empty hand

So I’m counting the sins of the spectres I know
Each one of them hungry as a carrion crow
And I covet their hunger and they places they’ll go

Hear their quiet hum de dum de dum de dum dah
Their song, with their song they say
“We are doing everything we can to be alright.”
