    War Between the Trees


    Moonshine Kids submission to the 2018 NPR Tiny Desk Contest.
    War Between the Trees is a song about the longterm impacts of human interference in nature. While camping in the Apostle Islands, we met some firefighters performing a controlled burn. They explained that people planted birch trees on the islands for logging many years ago, and that this had fundamentally altered the chemical makeup of the soil. The new biome is hostile to the red pines, which originally grew on the islands - as the pines die, so do the berries, and eventually the bears that depend on the berries. However, we saw pine trees making a comeback, berry bushes growing again, and even some bear poop! The damage is not irreversible yet.

    The evening was filmed and there will be a release of edited videos from the performance. This is a little teaser that we filmed in the hay loft of the milking barn, after the show. Ben's daughter, Aria, hung out for the late-night serenade.

    Shannon Söderlund Secretary


    Find my EP, Innocent Heart, here:

    The story behind the song: I was feeling frustrated one day about my inability to write more, due to lack of space, lack of time, and the pressures of everyday life. In my discontent, I started working on this plan to revamp my tiny NY apartment to make space for a desk - an actual place that I could sit down and work. As I planned all this out, though, I realized that a desk wouldn't actually solve any of my problems for me. It would only be a desk. In that frame of mind, I wrote the song.
    I did, however, end up buying a desk, and it is the one we're sitting at for this song. In solidarity with the tune's title and my current day job, it is, in fact, a secretary desk.

    Shannon Söderlund - vocals
    Pamela Vachon - harmonies
    Andrew Söderlund - guitar


    If I had a desk, then I could write a couple songs because
    My life would be all put up in its place
    The pens would rest in holders and the envelopes, you know, would all just
    Hang out in their designated space

    A corner, put together
    Like a puzzle, it should weather
    As long as it's controlled
    Down to a detail, I can hold on
    To my sanity

    If I had a desk, then I would write a couple notes to all
    The loved ones that I know
    I'd go through alphabetically, to make sure that I didn't miss
    A single, solitary Joe

    A corner, put together
    Like a puzzle, it should weather
    As long as it's controlled
    Down to a detail, I can hold on
    To my sanity

    If I had a desk, then I'd get stationary monogrammed
    And styled within an inch of every page
    And everyone would be able to tell that every jot and tittle
    Had been particularly placed

    A corner, put together
    Like a puzzle, it should weather
    As long as it's controlled
    Down to a detail, I can hold on
    To my sanity

    By My Side


    This is Juice. This is a song about Juice. Juice hopes that all of the furbabies (even the cats) who are as loved as she is get to hear it!

    Music and lyrics
    by Crys Matthews
    v1. Little dog with your big, brown eyes
    you're the bright yellow sun when all I see is gray skies.
    Won't you teach me how to be a little more like you,
    how to always see the best in people no matter what they do,
    how to size up every stranger I meet,
    how to know when to bite, or when to just show my teeth?
    Oh, life gets so hard sometimes,
    but it's nothin' I can't handle with you by my side.

    ch. She doesn't ask me why I'm feeling blue —
    I don't have to say a word and she understands.
    If I could be half the person my dog is
    then I would be twice the human I am.

    v2. Little dog with your big, funny grin
    you're my shot in the arm when life's wearing me thin.
    Won't you teach me how to be joyful like you,
    how to find the simplest pleasures in every little thing I do,
    how to take more time to cut loose and play,
    how to just wander and trust I'll find my way?
    Oh, life gets so hard sometimes,
    but it's nothin' I can't handle with you by my side.

    ch. She doesn't ask me why I'm feeling blue —
    I don't have to say a word and she understands.
    If I could be half the person my dog is
    then I would be twice the human I am.

    v3. Little dog with your big, big heart
    you're the apple of my eye, my moon and stars.
    Won't teach me all you can about this world,
    how to be the kind of friend to others that you've been to me, girl,
    how to love with every fiber of my being,
    how to keep on smiling with all the sadness I'm seeing?
    Oh, life gets so hard sometimes,
    but it's nothin' I can't handle with you by my side.

    ch. She doesn't ask me why I'm feeling blue —
    I don't have to say a word and she understands.
    If I could be half the person my dog is
    then I would be twice the human I am.

    Music by Phil Andrews
    Lyrics by Ellia Bisker

    For more information:


    Are you short of breath
    Did you break your neck
    Gonna catch your death
    What did you expect
    It’s just a side effect
    of sitting at your desk
    they’ll pull off your legs
    Like you’re just an insect

    They say it’s not gonna kill you
    But they don’t feel it like you do

    They say it’s not gonna kill you
    But they don’t feel it like you do

    Tremolo Lights - Tidal Wave


    NPR Tiny Desk Submission - 2018

    Tremolo Lights thanks everyone who was involved in this project, including Will David (videography) and Fabian Pena (audio production, drums).

    P.S. Rachel (bass player) is sitting on the desk!


    In all my lifetime I’ve never seen it
    In all my life I couldn’t believe it
    And I’ve been waiting, God knows I need it
    I’m in the ocean trying to breathe in but

    I’m swept away on the back of your tidal wave
    I’m up and down, all around, all the way
    I never thought that I’d feel this way

    It’s such a magic mystery
    Oh what you found in, found in me
    And I’m wide open for you to see
    You’re touching me so tenderly

    Oh, Oh, Oh
    Hold me up
    I’m drowning in your love
    Oh, my cup
    Runs over, and over, over and
    When I’ve had enough
    You always call my bluff
    Oh when I think
    It could be over

    I’m swept away on the back of your tidal wave
    I’m up and down, all around, all the way
    I never thought that I’d feel this way

    I’m swept away on the back of your tidal wave
    I’m up and down, all around, all the way
    I never thought that I’d feel this way

    What I want is
    Not to get lost
    I kind of like myself the way I am
    Don’t want to die in your ocean

    Don’t take my life away
    I’m in the water and I want to stay
    Oh can I be me?
    We’ll be together and still feel free

    In all my lifetime, I’ve never seen it

    I’m so glad to be submitting for the contest this year. I always thought to do it but never got around to manifesting the thought a.k.a I was terrified. Bob Boilen and Tiny Desk staff you guys are amazing and incredibly lit. You introduce me to new, extraordinary artists all the time. Thanks for the opportunity to play for you.

    Btw, I wrote this song about two years ago. It came from a very sad place but it’s really edifying and healing for me to sing it. I hope the same for you listening.

    French Perfume Blues


    Composed by Cory Magno. Lyrics by Jeff Shwom. Horn arrangement by Jeff Shwom. Photography By Aaron Chaim Shwom.


    In April, you left me, said you wanted some room
    Yah you told me you were leavin’, said you might be back real soon
    Now I sit alone here baby, in sadness and gloom.

    But, I got a package from you on friday, had to sit down in my room
    I got that package on Friday, had to sit down in my room
    Inside there was no love letter, just a coat drenched in french perfume.

    I sat by the telephone, but it never rang
    Yah I sat by the phone for a month lord it never ever rang
    You broke my heart for nothin’, and it cost me everythang

    We still never said goodbye, I hoped we could real soon
    Yes, we still never said bye, I still hope we could real soon
    But now the closest I can get to you, a coat drenched in french perfume.

    Written by Sarah Marie Dillard and performed by Sarah & The Underground, Bad Man is a SoulFolk ballad inspired by the Netflix docu-series Making A Murderer which tells the true stories of Brendan Dassey and Steven Avery, two men who are currently imprisoned for crimes which many believe they did not commit. Sarah joined American and international viewers in outrage when she first learned of this story, especially in regards to Brendan Dassey who was arrested, tried and convicted as a minor based on a coerced confession produced by investigators who took disgraceful advantage of his youth, his below-average IQ and his eagerness to trust and please adults in authority. Brendan and Steven's phone calls with their mothers, placed from the inside, were particularly heartbreaking and a major inspiration for the lyrics of Bad Man.

    This song was inspired by the stories of two men whose names are now internationally synonymous with false arrest, false confession and false conviction, but it rings true with the stories of thousands of others who are currently wrongfully imprisoned in the land of the free, who do not look like Brendan or Steven, who have no hope for justice or freedom and who do not get their own documentaries. This song concludes with a simple but insightful quote from Steven Avery: Poor people lose. Poor people lose all the time.
