about

The Cloven Shovel was a solo experimental musical project Jason Thompkins did. The E.P. was given out to family and friends. The whole recording session was inspired by childhood, teenage memories and a personal collapse going on at the time. An adventure into the zenith of addiction and an unraveling of emotional ghosts. The songs are based around true events and most of the music, recordings and even vocal out-takes were done on the spot without any rehearsal. Just getting into the studio (the Bedroom), hitting record and laying down the colours of what can be seen as a dark period of complete collapse. The theme of the E.P. is based on a romantic love affair with a dead girl and the isolation induced by the ever increasing escapism from living human beings. The Dark Night of the Soul. The late a.m. hours of the night spent with the safety of cold nights camping out in a childhood cemetery. The soundtrack to finding comfort and safety in the night, the wind, Autumn and Winter's chill, perfumed candles and overcast evenings in the narcotized numbness of childhood.
