    The Joy Mills Band spent a quiet winter completing their ep, Coming Up, their fourth release. Recorded in a former veterinary hospital (now a writing & music studio), the songs (four originals and one cover) reflect a longing to connect with nature and each other outside the technological hum of modern day, such as on the title track:

    You've been hanging out in my mind to ease the burden
    Just passing by my window then gone again

    I love when the robin sings, sweet things through an open door
    How I've been waiting for these songs in the dawn
    I live every loving day, strange things through an open door
    How long we've been waiting for these songs in the dawn

lyrics

Love, I'm hanging up my coat, been down that dusty road
Heaven's a seed
Sun, through the clouds well I don't know
Nothing is as it is told, so what can be done

The bend of the arc, a light in the darkness
A man on the scene, no time to weep
No more than you need
If it's done like a deed, it's heavy, yeah

Love I'm hanging up my coat, no more following fool's gold
Like a minnow, where waters rarely run deep
How was I to know
All it just for show, so what can be done
