about

Way in the beginning, TH&S started as a home recording solo project.

From 2009 to 2010, Tamblyn recorded 6 songs a month for 10 months. At first releasing them under his own name, and naming the collection Tape Hiss and Sparkle. It was on the sixth disc of these 10 releases that Tape Hiss and Sparkle replaced Tamblyn's name.

These songs were roughly recorded on a very small budget. They were and still are lo-fi.

Track Name: Whitney Houston
(instrumental)
Track Name: Pick Out The Thorn
we wail
the woe is what we need
rely on
it feeds us all
pick out our endless thorns
the woe is what we need
pick out the thorn
pick out the thorn

believe me
the blade was in her hand
believe me
the blade was in her hand
believe me
Track Name: Vert
all we ever want
all imperative
to push the deserts back
to the sea
living evidence
of another mouth
of the teeth around
she with green invades then leaves

listen here
you were wrong
i thought you had left long before
love your mom
love your dad
silver spoons were in your school friends' drawers

she with green invades then leaves
on the opposite town's end pleading
all they took from us
all those accidents
a slip of sole beneath the heel
in
this
suburb
city
country

trying to live without words
Track Name: Die Bron
hier le die son op n brug
die maan swem daar onder
maar nou is ons geskei
en die dae trap verby

die water is stil
en ek dink aan jou
dis weer vreedsaam hier
al het ek al jou lerre en papiere
maar nou is ons geskei
en die dae trap verby
vele meer sal kom

bid vir my
ek sal bid vir jou
bid vir my
ek sal bid vir jou
