about

LOFT-002

I first saw Anjimile perform at NU Afterhours when we were both starting our freshman year of college, and I was enthralled with her music the moment she started singing. I was left in wonder after she captivated the room with nothing but her voice and her guitar. At the time, I kicked myself for not catching her name, but I was lucky enough to reconnect with her right around the time Dave and I were launching Loftman Records. She was the first artist we wanted to work with, and we were thrilled when she agreed to be on our roster. On Saltwater we tried to capture the intimacy, sincerity, and simplicity of her music. We hope you enjoy.

Track Name: Jackie Jackie
J is for joyful
A you always have plans
C for cute
K for kind
I cause I like the way that you dance
And Even though you turned me down four months ago it's alright now

J for jubilation
A my adorable crush
C for cuddly
K for kisses
I cause I can't stop calling you up
And Even though the spring has come it's time to go but I had fun
Track Name: Baker
My heart is pulsing again
A frantic rhythm within
And so affection begins
A shaking all in my bones
Internal sighs and moans
I just can't leave you alone

I want you to be mine
You can't ignore the signs
I see you every goddamn day and I still don't know your name

You give my spirit a rise
Your rare and radiant eyes
Leave me spent in surprise
Darling follow my lead
My pulse is picking up speed
You are all that I need

Oh pretty baby you set my soul aflame
Oh just maybe you'll let me know your name
Oh pretty baby you set my soul aflame
Oh pretty baby

My head is pounding again
A frenzied cadence within
Infatuation begins
I'll make you understand
I'll give you all that I can
Please let me hold your hand

I want you to be mine
We can't ignore the signs
I see you every goddamn day and I still don't know your name
Track Name: Be Calm
I walked a mile in the southern sun
I dragged my feet across the long and winding road
I was alone and I was lonely, too
I was a mess and I was missing you

Take heart my love
we're almost there
it's soon, so soon
I'll meet you there my love
be calm my love

there's no mistaking it, the end is nigh
i'm more than ready to resign this to the dust
I hate the waiting and I hate goodbye
I hate the distance between you and I
In time we'll sleep together, we'll be older then
we'll reminisce about the summer when
our love was hanging by a landline phone
finally, you and I can be alone

Take heart my love
we're almost there
it's soon, so soon
I'll meet you there my love
be calm my love

You were just some broad I was trying to lay
Now I've got to have your lovin every day

Take heart my love
we're almost there
it's soon, so soon
I'll meet you there my love
be calm my love
Track Name: Saltwater
Climb into the boat beside me
I'll steer, you can row beside me
use your steady oars to guide me
as we travel on the red sea

I deeply fear the ocean
for there's no end and no beginning
I am no sailor, I was land-born
after my sister, before my brother
saltwater mouthfuls and wrinkling fingers
I wore my welcome out down below

(I was Ishmael I was itching for the warmth of the water in the palm of my hands)
You're quite a swimmer, can you teach me?
I'm too impatient but I learn quickl
(I was Ahab, too, I was after the animal who delivered me a living death)
I can tell you were sea-born
after your father, after your mother
(I was Moby Dick, I was thrashing in the water, I was bloody, I was out for blood)
and I believe you and I'll go with you
into the deep blue
we'll go together

Climb into the boat beside me
I'll steer, you can row beside me
use your steady oars to guide me
as we travel on the red sea

April rain never
felt so sweet, I'm just glad I
had you there with me

So here we go now
after you, dear
we'll find what's hiding out down below
Track Name: Warm Hearts
Your parents think I'm crazy
I can't say they're wrong
I'm something of a soldier marching into song
Be honest with me, baby
Are you here to stay?
I'm asking you to love me every single day

Oh, I know you do
(ndimakukonda)

Our future is uncertain, that will always be
(your love is part of me)
I promise to stay with you if you'll stay with me
(sometimes you're all I see)
"Doubt thou the stars are fire, doubt that the sun doth move
(when you look through me)
Doubt truth to be a liar, but never doubt I love"

Oh, you know I do
(ndimakukonda)
