Album I Hope Your Heart Is Not Brittle. If you peel back Some of your rose petals You can see at last All of the steel and glass we fall for. We have been had We have been had We have been had We have been had. If you can still see All of the dust settles Hold on to your collapsing sea And I hope your heart is not brittle. More on Genius. I Hope Your Heart Is Not Brittle Portastatic.

Album I Hope Your Heart Is Not Brittle. People can't imagine what goes on up here They think it's all scrub brush and deer Some things keep their color all the time Winter can't kill what's mine. And the gutters are full And the gutters are full And my feet stay dry And my feet stay dry. Now I see why you say the core of this city is green Now I see what you mean And I see what you meant When you showed the frame to be bent

I Hope Your Heart Is Not Brittle is Portastatic's first studio album. It was released on Merge Records in 1993. It was also released in Japan with additional bonus tracks.

This album set the pattern for the solo albums McCaughan released under the Portastatic name, with a wide dynamic range and occasional raging slabs of rock mixed in with quiet tunes. The instrumentals are almost reminiscent of Polvo in their use of drones and odd time signatures and are worthy of mention. The best of the rockers here is probably the bouncy "Silver Screw" - what it's about is anyone's guess, but it sure is catchy. Like most of McCaughan's projects, I Hope Your Heart Is Not Brittle reveals layers of ideas with repeated listening, a feat very few of his.
