Cold Front, 2018

| Download | Buy CD | Track Listing / Lyrics

The flashpoint where Courtnee ran out of fucks; A neurotic album with multiple personalities, Cold Front explores the worlds between both the beautiful ambient-electronic vocal landscape lullaby songs of CFR’s “Not Applicable” era works, and vulgar feminist punk ukulele diddies about pussies and assholes and dicks, culminating into anthem tracks like Hey Hey and I Hate The Fucking Internet. Musically and genre eclectic while maintaining symmetry within Courtnee’s distinct acoustic-electronic sound, Cold Front is sure to have a little bit of something to satisfy, and amuse, every CFR fan.

Decatur: Produced by Mark Bingham, 2016

Notable tracks: Please Don’t, Bang Bang, Paint it Black

| Download | Buy CD | Track Listing / Lyrics

Comprised largely of sultry, torchy cover songs, Decatur hails directly from the melancholy streets of New Orleans. Less challenging in subject matter/language than CFR’s albums Cold Front or Keep Going, Decatur is a crowd pleasing, atmospheric marvel noted for a soulful, stripped down cover style which mirrors the minimal quality of CFR’s original ambient electronic works.

Keep Going, 2015

Notable tracks: Wounded, Psychogirl, Black Widow, The Rape Song, In My Mind

| Download | Buy CD | Track Listing / Lyrics

CFR’s inarguable coming of age project, Keep Going is an aurally pleasing soft rock album about patriarchy, rape culture, and heartbreak. Solidly rooted and lyrical, these songs illustrate the direct acknowledgement and rejection of a previous life of amatonormative struggle with vagueness and ongoing denial. Indications of the silly punk songs to come can be heard in tracks like RCW.9A.44.050 (The Rape Song), and in this album there is a distinct absence of CFR’s previous ambient wheelhouse. If Cold Front is the unpretty, recently whole feminist finally telling the patriarchy to go fuck itself, Keep Going was the collection of woke siren songs that angelically gave it the chance to pull its head out of its own ass first.

Embodied: Live in Seattle, 2011

Notable tracks: Serve the Servants, Fade Out, Atonement, My Sweet Prince

| Download | Buy CD | Track Listing / Lyrics

A provocative multimedia show and design project, Embodied is CFR’s most technically ambitious of live shows to date, including video projection, live painting, live musical performance and first foray into crowdfunding. Performed for two nights in November of 2011 with a budget of nearly €4000, Embodied depicted the sense of personality fragmentation in CFR’s youth, and was both a homage to as well as the fulcrum of the extensive experiences of slowly piecing ones self together to truly become capable of being a whole person. The musical performances were bookended with circus aerial work as part of the presentation illustrating an intense musical journey, including much of Not Applicable’s original vocal landscapes and distinctive cover songs at a time when they had only been performed live once 11 years prior. Anyone who enjoys being moved by the dark, melancholy, and profound will love this album in particular. There is also a behind the scenes DVD available of the making of the show.

Autochthon: The music of Not Applicable, 2012

| Download | Buy CD | Track listing / Lyrics

Autochthon is a re-release of the moody ambient electronic vocal landscape works of Courtnee Fallon Rex (Papastathis) as Not Applicable in 1999/2000. It includes original music that was first released through the mp3.com DAM CD’s “Point of Origin” and “Altercations” which was created mainly with a single Juno 106 synth and Courtnee’s first experimentations with the abilities of ther voice. Influenced heavily by the atmosphere of film scores and the melancholy of Pink Floyd, the music of Autochthon was often compared to Lisa Gerrard of Dead Can Dance and Julie Cruise of the original Twin Peaks soundtrack, and is the most reviewed album of CFR’s discography.

Created mainly with a single Juno 106 synth and Courtnee’s first experimentations with the abilities of ther voice in 1999/2000.
