about

Almost a year after the release of her extraordinary self-titled fourth album, Jen Cloher releases a gorgeous acoustic EP 'Live at The Loft and Loew’s'.

The live EP features exquisite performances captured at Wilco’s famous Loft studios in Chicago and from within the decaying glory of New Jersey’s iconic Loew’s Theatre. These are performances of sparse beauty, laying bare the elegance, simplicity and rawness of Cloher’s songwriting. They are a reminder that the multi-award-winner's recent albums have established her as one of the most important song-writing voices in the country.

The Live at The Loft and Loew’s EP will be available as a super-limited edition vinyl pressing available only at Cloher’s upcoming shows.

Track Name: Strong Woman (Live at The Loft)
When I was young
I wanted to be Jon
It wasn’t hard
Short hair, no curves to speak of
I could do things
I couldn’t do as Jen
Ride bikes with boys
Kiss girls and make some noise.

I grew to be
A Young Lady
Catholic Girls School
Will try to do that to you
Never fit in
To love was to live in sin
So I stood out
I was born to let it out.

This world it wasn’t made for women
You know even before you’re bleeding
I’m sorry, can’t you hear me speaking?
How is it now, now that I’m screaming?

I know
I am a Strong Woman
Never questioned
My strength it was passed on
Proud my Mother wanted respect more than love
And her mother taught her that she could want for more.

I know
I am a Strong Woman
Never questioned
My strength it was passed on
Proud my Mother wanted respect more than love
Kia kaha
Be proud, stay strong
Go on.
Track Name: Regional Echo (Live at The Loft)
Noisy Minors
Bully the suburbs
Out beyond the haze
Seaside holiday houses
Lay quiet as a grave
Tombs of dreams past
Wealth gone to waste
The Australian dream is fading
Stolen anyway

I’m never gonna lose my head
To a setting sun
I’m never gonna dream of things
That just can’t be done

Pavement’s too hot to walk on barefoot
So you hop and skip
Prawns in wheelie bins marinate
A cocktail of stink
Bat swaying on
The power line
Wings open in surrender
This is how you die

I’m never gonna lose my head
To a setting sun
I’m never gonna dream of things
That just can’t be done
I’m never gonna say, never gonna do, never gonna be
Anything more than what’s expected of me.
Track Name: Sensory Memory (Live at Loew's)
I start missing you
Days before you leave
I guess it’s a kind of sensory memory
Deep below the conscious
Mind you
I can be on my own
I’m an only child
I like my company
Potter ‘round
Make another pot of
Tea for two is when
You come home
We sit and eat breakfast
Eggs with soldier toast
Buttered well
So you get the edges
Of the things you never say
Distance has a funny way
Of slowly making you someone
That I don’t know

People ask me why
I don’t go on the road with you
I tell them
“Here’s a day in the life of a touring muso”
Early morning flight
Press all day
City through a window
Air-conditioned room
With a view
Late night
Early morning
Light creeps through the blinds
And the cat
Hungry for her breakfast
Routine keeps me sane
I’m not made
For the lonesome highway
I guess I’m never gonna be
The Joy to your Slim Dusty
But you know I’m always here
When you get home.
