Johan Östberg One of those I-need-to-have-this moments as soon as I "accidently" stumbled across the EP.

I love the minimalistic approach and clever use of voice. It's dark, eerie and haunting, begging you to listen. Best buy in a long, long time! Favorite track: Touch.

The Passive Voice is a dual CDr and Zine released by Berlin-based artist Brigid Fitch. Explorations of domesticity, disembodied sexuality, power and violence subtly emerge through an interplay of sound, text and image. The Passive Voice speaks of strength through passivity, ambiguity, and ever-present anxiety.

Track Name: Ready
Ready to call you up on the phone
Ready to act and be acted upon
Ready to try and ready to fail
Ready for a check to come in the mail
Ready to kill and ready to die
Ready to be caught in a lie
Ready to fuck and ready to hurt
Ready to drag my name in the dirt
Ready to smile and ready to bite
Ready for everything to be alright
Ready to fight and ready to flee
God, how stupid can you be?

(I'm nobody, who are you?)
Track Name: Push (Burial)
Just because it's easy doesn't make it wrong
But I wish I was stronger
Discipline is dangerous
I hope at least I'm under your skin
Becoming the skeleton you've always been

Push and let go
Tell reality no
Find and lose nothing

I want to bury myself I want to carry myself away
I want to have nothing to say

Wanted it then but I don't want it anymore
Track Name: The Passive Voice
In changing myself to suit an ideal
I acknowledge its power over me
But I also acknowledge my desire
For survival

(Leaning into sagging walls
Against them and with them
Caving in the sagging walls
Take everybody with them)

A lack of clear text
Leads to an invented subtext
I need to be a hero
So that I won't be a victim
Track Name: Touch
(Hysterical, smiling, totally terrifying)

Touch me I'm a machine
That's what you want from me
Open my ________ pretending not to know

Shut up. Go harder. Be smarter.
Track Name: Legs
How many people disappear? How many people come undone? How many people live in fear? How many people shot?
How many people hurt themselves? How many people try? How many people empty shells? How many people not?

Do you like my legs? Do you like my smile? I know that you want me to stay awhile. Do you like my brain? Do you like my head?
Darling, I have to go

(I like you though, I love you though)
