Oh my baby you are by no means a has-been Please don’t define yourself in the validation of scenes Some memory of transient community You mean so much more to me And ex-lovers and your brothers and all the others that you’ve touched You are transcendent, independent and you inspire so much I hear you play yourself down as a joke Truely basic, too abrasive, identified by cheap paint, wine and smoke I see you through all the flaws you wear like jewels The most creative, complicated, wrestling with your ego boosts Oh well maybe you think in similar ways that I do I feel you seeing into me and I feel I can see into you too We share our heads through feigned confidence The softest of souls project like an edge and it’s all defence Plush cubes don’t hurt when thrown and they don’t roll But the you also know that you’re special and I’m so glad that you know You don’t need me to tell you but I still want to tell you You have the rarest soul

But sometimes when those who’ve hurt you are on jyour mind and you are reminiscing painfully I may choose to remind.

about

Lovewank is the new project by Jay from Crywank. After Crywanks world tour was postponed half way through due to COVID-19, Jay remained in Toronto. Since then they’ve been much happier and began writing love songs for their partner. Although sadness and self-doubt is an unavoidable thread through a lot of Jays music, Love is the main focus of this new project. These songs where recorded with close friend and touring partner Colm Hinds of Rosseau in his bedroom over two sessions, these songs weren’t intended to be released or made public as soon as they where but y’know.... pandemic, cancelled tour, bandcamp friday. Any amount given for the recordings is greatly appreciated, and please don’t upload for streaming, I’ll be doing that eventually! Thanks for reading!!

Special thanks to Rachel Ripken for the love inspiration and support, Cherry for lending me the guitar, Gabi Hurr for letting me sing in front of her for a whole evening, Nathan Patrick for lending recording gear and putting up with my noise, the Hottubbers for giving me a safe and happy place to live in Toronto, Tom Nixon for kindly mastering these songs without even needing asking and Colm who these songs wouldn’t exist without the help of.
