We assembled your chair from ancient bones and this tablecloth is sparkling because it is made of eyes--a million eyes looking through us into something unknown and ethereal as we drink our tea. Your latest dream hovers between us in the shape of a crystal ball. This is our Tea Party. We pass the sugar and look! Your finger has fallen off at the knuckle and is resting in your cup. And my lips were red, but since your finger fell off, my lips are now blue. But let's just listen. There is a rattle, a scraping, and a chime to start...
Tea Parties is Magmana's first self-release, and was originally released under the name Treasure. Seven songs written and recorded in Joan Tick and Caleb Lindskoog's Brooklyn apartment. And there is a book of short stories written in the night, underwater, between conversations and covers. One short story for each song written by Joan and illustrated by Maude Black, who is the same artist who created the cover art. Only 300 have been made. The covers are letter-pressed, screen-printed, and hand-painted one by one.
You can read excerpts from each song's short story in the lyrics section.
