    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

when it's time to surrender show the palms of your hands
or go out with guns blazing, off with your head
when they tell you the futures always bright
well to get there you gotta get throughout the night

fall in bed with roses, try to remove the thorns
pretend that it's not hurting and bleed out from the heart
when they tell you the futures always bright
well to get there you gotta get throughout the night

not very classy, not very lady like
and you say what a rise, what a fall
a swim in the water on the warmest of days
shoots so straight
where did you come from?
i knew that I liked it when i saw the shark bite
you flew straight out of water and i watched you unwind
you plucked your whiskers and i yelled at the world
sit up straight, stand so tall, what a glorious brawl

a spoon full of honey, your heads in the clouds
you want to believe in love but it keeps letting you down
when they tell you the heart never lies
they don't tell you that love is in the mind

work so hard, work so long
busy hands happy heart is something I know
when they tell you the futures always bright
well to get there you gotta get throughout the night

I watched the stars glare down at me till they faded in the light
sitting, staring, thinking
about my life

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.
