Born in 1999, Asthmatic Kitty Records was originally conceived as a platform for musical projects by a community of artists from Holland, Michigan, a small city on the shore of Lake Michigan. Some were Holland natives, and others had come to attend local colleges and universities. While the original Holland nucleus has now dispersed to various parts of the country, the fellowship is still growing, with new friends and shared projects with other independent labels. Asthmatic Kitty is now based in Lander, Wyoming, Indianapolis, Indiana and New York City. Asthmatic Kitty was named after Sara, a voluptuous orange and white longhair who wandered out of the woods in 1995, pregnant, starving, and afflicted with various parasites and ailments, including feline asthma. Although she still wheezes a bit, especially when being chased by her sister Tabby, Sara today enjoys a healthy and happy life of luxury. Cast-off animals make the best pets!

Lyrics:

As if you know the story of Wallowa Lake:
Leviathan first hid in the deep where her children sleep
She kept them hidden from the plague

But have you heard the story of my mother’s fate?
She left us in Detroit in the rain with a pillow case
Fortune for the paper weight

We followed her to Joseph, near the Indian raid
She wept among the weeds, hide and seek, for the fallen chief
Spathiphyllum on his grave

And like the cedar wax wing, she was drunk all day
We put her in the sheet, little wreath, candles on the crate
As the monster showed its face

As she waits for her children in the shade
Demogorgon or demigod the ghost parade
No oblation will bring her back to our place

She stayed within the deep end of Wallowa Lake
The undertow refrained with the flame of a feathered snake
Charybdis in its shallow grave

She gave us one last feature: the fullness of her face
In the shade of “Hin-mah-too-yah…” (Red Napoleon)
As the demon took her place

As we wait for the waters to reside
Her remarkable stoicism and her pride
When the dragon submerged we knew she had died

Sufjan Stevens - Tonya Harding (Official Audio)

Buy/listen here: http://smarturl.it/tonya-harding Lyrics: Tonya Harding, my star Well this world is a cold one But it takes one to know one And God only knows what you are Just some Portland white trash You confronted your sorrow Like there was no tomorrow While the rest of the world only laughed Triple axel on high A delightful disaster You jumped farther and faster You were always so full of surprises Are your laces untied? What’s the frown on your face for? And just what are the skates for now? Tell me which is your good side? Are you lonely at night? Do you miss all the glory And the mythical story Of the Olympian life? Yamaguchi in...

Get it here: http://smarturl.it/greatest-gift Lyrics: Suppose the world was not informed by real estate or power lines The hidden river of my life, pursued by love The whispering stone, the valley ford, the candy corn, the spirit finds Abuse has left me on on my side, a single stone I’m a walker, I’m a dreamer, tree house greeter, pentacostal preacher I’m a rocker, yeah I’m a schemer, compost preacher, pioneer believer A small betrayal, a simple thought, to shrug it off, unoccupied The precious lake, the river bed, the rising tide The sad surprise, the day of flags, the flooding fox, the clever chime Awake my soul, awake my heart,...

'Cause most of us are heaving through corrupted lungs. Setting fire to our insides for fun Collecting names of the lovers that went wrong The lovers that went wrong. We are the reckless, We are the wild youth Chasing visions of...
