Mon Souvenir 03:14
Taking out the trash almost every day Doesn’t help send the demons away Always ready for the ultimate steal They’re too real Mon souvenir Laughing from below a cloudless sky Sun drenched dreams just float on by Looking for a way to grab the wheel Time at my heels Mon souvenir Send me a sign, send me a word Make it clear, make it heard ‘cause never gonna fix the broken seal If I can’t feel Mon souvenir If I can feel, then I can heal... Mes souvenirs...

And Zen Ghost, the seventh album by New York folk/postpunk/cabaret duo Frenchy and the Punk — singer, percussionist, and lyricist Samantha Stephenson and guitarist and composer Scott Helland — written and recorded during the pandemic-induced downtime of 2020-2021, finds the already shadowy sound of the hard-touring twosome taking an even darker turn. An inward spin, into the pair’s previously unexplored personal planes and interpretations of the insanity of our increasingly tumultuous age. But despite its more pronounced moodiness, Zen Ghost, like the rest of the band’s oeuvre, offers plenty of opportunities to dance in the darkness.
