    Katie has emerged with 14 tracks that comprise her sixth full length album. The album is about the material conditions of our lives, working, rebelling, resisting, loving, learning, and how we participate, which can be messy and beautiful, encouraging and darkening. There is a feminist edge in this music and a strength that motivates confrontation and also non-compliance!

lyrics

idle hands and a happy heart
take what you need i got plenty spare parts

you put your face on when you're feeling sad
another day much like the last
I'm so nervous you see right through me
through someone else's eyes it looks so empty
everybody put your faces on

idle hands and a happy heart
take what you need i got plenty spare parts
the sun bursts through and you're thinking just maybe
you'll feel better soon
but lately

it is just so bold
to melt down a heart of gold

you put your face on when you're feeling sad
another day much like the last
I'm so nervous you see right through me
through someone else's eyes it looks so empty
everybody put your faces on

KATIE AND THE LICHEN
A 5 piece pop-verisimilitudes/sister/pop-verite band.
Playing ukes, and melodicas, guitars and drums, and more, they
focus on the anti-pop-anti-folk aspects of the lo-fi music universe,
this includes crunching class divisions and endorsing and eating feminism.
They are unladylike. They are encouragable, endearing and effing adorable.
