R All I can say at the moment is that Le Fey's highly flexible vocal delivery is amazing and mysterious. Also, I much prefer her original work here to any of the previous covers... Just sayin'

Andy Mascola Each track on Romantic Cancer features Elizabeth Le Fey’s beautiful, delicate voice and acoustic guitar much more prominently than on her previous full-length. There are some excellent moments here. Globelamp’s latest is worth your time. Favorite track: Lowest Low.

about

“Drawing up a wide range of influences, GLOBELAMP appeals to fans of “lost” ’60s and ’70s folksingers such as Vashti Bunyan or Judee Sill as well as contemporary artists such as Myrkur and Waxahachie. With added flashes of emo and lo-fi music, the appeal broadens, and one is left with an album and an artist that will leave you reeling.” – PopMatters

“With GLOBELAMP, Le Fey brings out the ‘magical’ side of her imagination, conjuring into being faerie and witch-folk songs that have only before existed in her mind or as written poetry in her youth. Yet while Le Fey’s vocals and presentation may be from a fantasy realm, her lyrics are rooted in reality. […] The engaging “Everything’s A Spiral” is a spare, but shining alt-folk tune that glows with Le Fey’s silky acoustic guitar strum and strikes and her airily sweet vocals. Luminous synth notes hover in the background adding even more radiance to the song.” – Stereo Embers

“GLOBELAMP strays far from traditional technique; her quavering voice and outlandish phrasing choices deters the average ear, and draws in a fan-base of those with a taste for underground and experimental work. Regardless of whether or you like or dislike it, GLOBELAMP’s voice rattles like a ghost through listeners cranium long after hearing it.” – College Media Network

“The Big Takeover is pleased to premiere “Sorceress of Your Soul”, a spellbinding dream-folk storyteller. The first half of the tune is more subdued, imbued with acoustic guitar strum, wavering vintage piano notes, and the occasional pull of accordion notes that sounds like warm strings. The second half swells more intensely with rising accordion notes and briskly struck guitar lines, while throughout, Le Fey’s expressive, light, and fluttering vocals move from dreamy to sharp and back again.” – The Big Takeover

Is our fear of getting hurt holding
us back from experiencing one of the
most powerful feelings on earth?
So many people are afraid to let go &
fall madly in love, to let down their defenses
let love over take them.

Sometimes it happens once or twice in our life
& when it ends we get scared of opening up to somebody else again.
Walls of self preservation begin to grow bigger & bigger.
We start believing Love equals Pain.
As though Love is a type of cancer
that must be avoided at all costs.
Sometimes our romantic impulses
can be self destructive to ourselves.
You might find yourself chasing after
someone you know is bad for you,
willing yourself to be blinded.
Sometimes I guess you just have to
learn some lessons the hard way.

Maybe you never realized you were a romantic
until you dated somebody who was quite literally afraid of love.
Maybe you are the person holding back,
viewing love as a cancer to be avoided.

Track Name: Sha La Love
How could I want?
How could I want anyone?
How could I love?
How could I love?
How could I love anyone?

If you’ve been thinking about sha la la love
I was thinking about she la la la la la la la la la la la love you
How much

Do you even love me?
I don’t think that you do

If you’ve been thinking about sha la la love
I was thinking about she la la la la la la la la la la la love you
Track Name: Everything's A Spiral
Well my lines were in knots
And my knees were blistered
From days searching out the sea

There was a desert land
There was a drive up north
There were pacific eyes
With an east coast heart

All the scribbles on the napkins
I threw away
& all the bright red roses
I put in a plastic vase

Maybe it’s too early - maybe it’s too soon
Maybe it’s too early for you

Gypsies lost, melted ice
I knew I was never right but
I said it & I did it anyways

Everything’s a spiral
There is no denial
Maybe you will turn
This way someday

Maybe it’s too early - maybe it’s too soon
Maybe it’s too early for you

All the candles lit in August
Withstood the falling leaves
Of leaves of Autumn
& broke through the frost
Of the winter
To be born again
In the spring
We’re all born again
In the spring
Track Name: Blinded featuring James Felice
Tomorrow I’ll be burning
Like a candle
Tonight I’m looking
For a spark
Before it gets too dark

Turn out the lights
I’m blinded
It’s too bright to see
Turn out the lights
I’m blinded
Gone is the illusion of you & me

Do we want to be in love
Or do we want to fight?
Why do we keep saying things
We know that are not right?

Turn out the lights!
I’m blinded
It’s too bright to see
Turn out the lights!
I’m blinded
Gone is the illusion of you & me

You & me you & me you & me
Never be

Tomorrow I’ll be burning like a candle
Tonight I’m looking for a spark
Before it gets too dark
Track Name: Romantic Cancer
You say your mama didn't give you love
oh but please don't judge her
You suckled on your bottom lip
for a tiny bit of comfort
so hard to resist
what feels like a fated kiss

Slowly breathing in romantic cancer
every breath is gonna kill you faster

A rose in Joan of Arc
walked around with a broken heart
Here I go fading back to you
Don't know why
I always seem to

Slowly breathing in romantic cancer
every breath is gonna kill you faster

I used to be your favorite flavor
sucked it all down got all you could savor
I used to be your favorite flavor
sucked me all down got all you could savor

Slowly breathing in romantic cancer
every breath is gonna kill you faster
Track Name: Sorceress Of Your Soul
You don't believe in love baby
You don't believe in you and me
What is your philosophy?
Is it to kill all divinity?

She’s the sorceress of your soul you didn’t know you had
Maybe you don’t believe in magic but its all she ever had
It’s all she ever had

You don't believe in love baby
No such thing as loyalty
what is your philosophy?
Is it to kill all divinity?

How can you only believe in a world you can see?
What a boring reality
Don’t think that life is for me

She’s the sorceress of your soul
You didn’t know you had
Put it away in your memories
Maybe someday you’ll be glad
Track Name: Lowest Low
Why do you want to be with me?
I make people cry
It's been proven time and again
It's better to just be my friend
Because I don't want to take the crazy
Things i've seen and put them on to someone
Wholesome and pure crystal dreams

Baby I went down to the lowest low
I know things that I shouldn't know

So don't come to me if you're looking for stability
I'm an old woman alone in my house drinking tea

You can join me if you like I was looking for a soul mate
Since I could breathe
You can join me if you like I was looking for a soul mate
Since I could breathe
But he could never find me
Track Name: Unnatural Speeds
All the things you say about them
You could easily say about me
I am delusional
To think this means anything

I can’t stop and see
This isn’t good for me
Chasing after you
At unnatural speeds

You’re in a relationship but why
You kiss other girls and lie
It isn’t right but it’s how you feel
In your dreams you want to make it real

But still

I can’t stop and see
This isn’t good for me
Chasing after you
At unnatural speeds

I won't get on my knees
And I know it probably doesn't mean anything
But still

I can’t stop and see
This isn’t good for me
Chasing after you
At unnatural speeds
Track Name: Birds Down My Back
Spent all my money
I lost something

He told me to come over
Bring my guitar my camera
He was wearing a maroon jacket
I was wearing a vegetable gown
Lived in a metallic house
We could see our reflections so clearly
Cutting into me

I spent all my money
I lost something
That was a big part of me
I can't find it anyone else
It's hard to realize it's never coming back
The way you trace your fingers
Over your grandmothers antiques
Sends birds down my back

I can always feel their wings fluttering
Open your eyes and peel away the thorns
It's hard to accept weeds now
Once you've dwelt in other forms

The way the wind pushes your hair is silent
Yet there's so much sound
And every step you take is a piano key
That is pressing down

I spent all my money
I lost something
That was a big part of me
I can't find it anyone else
It's hard to realize it's never coming back
The way you trace your fingers
Over your grandmothers antiques
Sends birds down my back
Track Name: No Hesitation
Crest fallen and crushed
On the brink of a new wave
All of the souls you daily save

You light the spark and then you
Casually turn away
You seem to forget that
This heart is in flames

I'm going to love you past the hesitation in my mind
Past the arrow in my heart
Past the fire in my soul
Past the pain we can't control

Take me away on a strawberry beam
Wrap me closer in your crow wings
Diving deeper in your submarine
When I close my eyes
I'm seeing things

I'm going to love you past the hesitation in my mind
Past the arrow in my heart
Past the fire in my soul
Past the pain we can't control

How many others have sat on this canal
In the Netherlands
Wishing the moon was a balloon for you
For you

I'm going to love you past the hesitation in my mind
Past the arrow in my heart
Past the fire in my soul
Past the pain we can't control
Track Name: Look Out Mountain
Your thrill for the exotic has me playing the monkey
A minstrel show you dIdn’t know you were offending me

The rest was aLL noise to me
When I sat on Lookout MountAin dreaming of bIgger things
NO One could tap me on the shoulders and ask me to leave
When I sat on Lookout Mountain
Dreaming of bigger things

I’m writing this song for me
But we all want visibility
Imagine all the Concertos and symphOnies
That were lOst - never made it into history

The rest was all noise to me
When I sat on LooKout Mountain
Dreaming of bigger things
No one could tap me on the shoulders
And ask me to leave
When I sat on Lookout Mountain
Dreaming of bigger things (x2)
