Motovun 03:24 video
They came for you One last time I see you, I hear you, I know Soak up the sun's Marigold It's coming, I'm sorry, don't go Spinning it's wheel Waning moon I'm fading, I'm melting away Remember our Motovun I wish I could hold on and stay I'll slip away I'll vanish slowly Make no mistake There's no escape
Your mother knows Your father knows
Banji 02:53
There's nothing to fear So wipe away those tears You should know love is all around you You should know love is all around It's a long long road So take your time, let go You can always call me back around You can always call me back again



"Swirling, warm, and inviting - Blue Canopy continues to deliver wonderfully dynamic works." - John Moses (KCRW)

Blue Canopy's 'Sleep While You Can' is the newest entry from Portland-based multi-instrumentalist, Alex Schiff. Exploring the often unspoken anxiety related to having a child and what that means for losing the past version of one's self, the EP is beautifully introspective at a time where self-reflection is incredibly crucial.

Formerly the keyboardist and co-writer for indie band, Modern Rivals, the EP is a follow up to his 2020 debut, Mild Anxiety, which was produced alongside Patrick J Smith (A Beacon School), a frequent collaborator.
