Patrick Canning The most original and satisfying album I heard all year. There is absolutely nothing like it. Bridger fell down a deep, deep hole of destruction and chaos and emerged with a ragged scalpel blade made entirely of his own severed nerves which he will lovingly drive directly into your brain through your ears. Highly recommended. Favorite track: Andrei.

about

AE Bridger St. John'S, Newfoundland and Labrador

AE Bridger has made self-produced records both on his own and with a group. As a self-taught multi-instrumentalist, Bridger's approach is nakedly intuitive, resulting in an individualistic sound that challenges genre and medium, drawing influence from film, visual art and the primitive aesthetics of 'outsider music.' ... more

Track Name: aquarena0-1
i’ve been trying and trying to go deeper
with you
Aquarena
I’ve been goin’ down to the moment where
the flame flickers out

Aquarena
where all that action and uncertainty calms down
and theres that moment where
the flame, the uncertainty
calms down
and the zero goes backwards to one

Aquarena
I feel a guttural shift now
back to the place where you want me to be
Zero and negative one
all the security that you want me to rely on

Aquarena
We are moving closer to the point where the flame flickers out
to the moment here all that activity moves down
to absolute vacuum static
down down down down down down
and you want me to rely on this?

Aquarena,
You talk to me with sweetness
that you want me to rely on
and the flame goes quiet
the point where
black goes to red goes backwards
zero goes backwards to one

Aquarena
I feel a guttural shift now
back to the place where you want me to be
Aquarena
you want me to rely on what you told me
You speak to me with the utmost sweetness that you
want me to rely on
Aquarena
The point where the flame flickers backwards
from zero to one

Aquarena
I feel a guttural shift now
back to the place where you want me to be

Aquarena
I don’t even know how it goes
I just walk around and buy what I want to get around
I don’t even know how it goes
you have these rules
you have a place you need to get
you have a place where the light contracts down
you have a place that you need to get to
i don’t even know what I want to get
I don’t even know how to get there
Aquarena
You want me to rely on what you told me
