Aloha Trees album cover

"Aloha/Irish Trees" is a collection of new and old poems by Eileen Myles, many of which have never been featured in her previous print collections and all of which have never been featured on a vinyl record. Recorded live, it encapsulates an experience that every poet is familiar with—an occasional linguistic flub can be heard now and then, as can the sound of the poet clearing her throat, taking a sip of water. “Fuck, this is so hard” is uttered on the first track of Side A. The final sentence heard on the last track of Side B is “I’m gonna catch up, I have to pee.” Listening to "Aloha/Irish Trees" is listening to Eileen Myles read her work live, an aural experience easy to hear, hard to escape.

Recorded at Disembodied Poetics/Naropa University in the Summer of 2015 and engineered and mastered by Gus Elg at Sky Onion in Portland, Oregon in the Fall of 2015.

Purchase of "Aloha/Irish Trees" includes a 11×11 insert of Myles’ “Sorry,” as well as a download card for the entire album. The record itself is not black but clear.

The audio book of Infernois now available through iTunes

From its beginning - "My English professor’s ass was so beautiful" - to its end - "You can actually learn to have grace. And that’s heaven" - poet, essayist, and performer Eileen Myles’ chronicle transmits an energy and vividness that will not soon leave its listeners. Her story of a young female writer, discovering both her sexuality and her own creative drive in the meditative and raucous environment that was New York City in its punk and indie heyday, is engrossing, poignant, and funny. This is a voice from the underground that redefines the meaning of the word.
