jesse Absolute fire from the undergrowth of the future disco mind. Something truly NEW. Which is a gift in a world filled with music that avoids its own strange, creative possibilities. Favorite track: On Its Side the Fallen Fire.

Pierre Conrad This album flies by thanks to an impressive variety, both vocally and sonically. They pull from a variety of styles and influences, but blend them well enough that it never comes off as either derivative or disjointed. Other highlights in the tracklist include "Mine", "Centerline", and the haunting opener. Favorite track: Deli Run.

bob sacamano Love this record. Perhaps their best, which is saying quite a bit given their strong discography. If Electric Balloon was their 'Young Americans', this is their 'Station to Station'. Favorite track: On Its Side the Fallen Fire.

Accessible 02:57
An openness Surrounded us Walking through air What’s louder than loud? What’s louder than loud? Walking through air And in slow tide Against the sound Holy wave Holy wave Against Against Against Against Against.

Centerline 03:54
Wandered to the side Found centerpieces bound to me I’m not satisfied Bonded to our pride, How can we expect a harmony Safe to confide? Floundering in the fight Will she wake up Numbering all the days Til she breaks up Who’s wrong Who’s right Just want to right it Right before she (Marches right back to the center) And as she knows (They were just too similar) And as she knows Right before she (Marches right back to the center) Automatic homage You’re good after that (When you see it’s always been Bad decision for for broke a battle that you cannot win After our lavish vacation Thaw the iceberg, you will see Charges from the minibar Your original reflection staring back at me) I can get you back I mean it
3.
Childish 03:11
I’m done, I quit Trouble’s not where it lives It has a way A style Too shook to relax That's karma crawling back After the fact I will throw in if you're gonna sit out I'm known to take names if you're calling me names It's so childish, right? Ah we can dodge it before the expiration Ya we can fight it What was there to think? I'm done, I quit Trouble’s not where it lives I won't relax Karma crawling back Ah we can dodge it before the expiration Yeah we can fight it

Leaf 03:18
A crest, a peak, body learns to speak A flower at the foot of the entry A peak, a crest, body comes to rest A flower at the foot of the entry I’ve been told, seem so solitary From the day we met, I haven’t seen it yet Would you embrace a loiter by the interchange I regret I haven’t seen it yet Just as the last sun falls through the leaves Does the warm honey flow from your body Just as we speak to gratitude’s weight Does the Earth rise up to our bodies The thought plucks me from the vine Suggests, (so come for) distracts me as it handles me Now wait, (I can’t wait) I want to be there, I want to be there Please let me be right there
5.
Mine 03:14
Get it what you want Oh wait Getting what you want It ain't All you admired See if I suffer today What you harness in the silence cannot be contained Hold on to it for yourself then give it all away Take it down easy Though not always easy Spinning on an accident the moon will wax and wane Suffering the vi-o-lence that you refuse to name Da da da da Da da da da da Don’t have to give yourself away Hold it to the light and find out who decides to stay One at a time I will take what is mine And then I will expire In a folding chair And then I'll get it all today

Moon 2 02:59
Was it forever since I bumped into you lookin cute Was it a throwback when I said that I had more to tend to Maybe a good step to say I’m sorry Got swept up in a whole lot Maybe a good step to say I’m leaving Counting sheep til it fills up Floating past you hand outreached Hold the paddle can you see? Pull over, there’s candy in the road Turn around, I left the oven on Maybe a good step to say I’m sorry Got swept up in a whole lot Maybe a good step to say I’m leaving Counting sheep til it fills up Pull over - ah ah There’s candy in the road - oh Turn around, I left the oven on What was I saying imma get to it, I’m in this for me Are you mad? Cuz this is just the start!

Deli Run 03:04
It was loads of fun but you missed out Tough luck And a deli run for the good stuff Drew straws And I lost Hop over the rent-a-fence Quick stop at the friday hang - oh Word is that it starts at 10 The time to dish is up, it’s been past due A.M. lags, all morning it’s on and off And and and and and You say that, and I’m here again Shoulda gone Shoulda run Let the rest Turn to mush Gracious inept debate did you have to test me then? We stayed up pretty late for illusion mystery If I go for a deli run will you roll with me? Had the best weekend with everyone without you Shoulda gone with it
8.
Set It Off 03:56
What’s your name Who do you embody to be The light Holding on to fire when there’s nothing to burn in sight Handy, died in love for two After she moved clouds for you Anybody said: Away! Anybody said: Away! (What’s your name Where’s your photograph) I have to find it I define it I decide to wild to wild Wiiiiiiiiiild.
9.
Patterns to sew And linens to wash We’re closed we’re closed and screaming I was taking the blame But not on my watch Why don’t you notice seasons? I was walking with an enemy I didn’t stop as it was happening - oh fudge I was walking with an enemy I didn’t stop as it was happening - oh no Besides the two of us Besides it’s the two of us Besides I was walking with an enemy I didn’t stop as it was happening - oh fudge I was walking with an enemy I didn’t stop as it was happening - oh no I - I messed up But you did too This ain’t where you were hoping to be So stay out This ain’t slick or bitter to me So stay out Absent-mindedness catching us in a net With none of this love All the things he read nothing in is head Drinking the punch And having too much And laughing in the foyer I was stealing a chair And dusting it off Why don’t you miss my secrets? Surviving a disaster
10.
Unless 03:35
Beat the harm Get washed up Me vs them Be real then Dictate to follow Dictate to follow Dictate to follow Dictate to follow, unless Under the dirt roads back when we were softest Under the dirt roads back when we were strongest Oh I understand I’d feel it out I’d pull for you but I’m wrapped up til 5 Over in a flash I’d burn a list I’d make a fist but I’m caught up til 9 Oh allow me it’s how to help to neutralize but I’m busy for now Oh I understand I’d feel it out I’d pull for you but I’m wrapped up til 5 Do they understand Foam we’re drowning in Chalk it up to living learning from the less fortunate Dictate to follow Dictate to follow, unless Dictate to fall Dictate to fall
11.
We confront taste Forget the ones who told you why We 2 4 2 save your life 5 and it saves your life fine if it saves you fine It’s a wash In a fit o-of a-do to, do, three I can afford to say Oh I (wake up) wanna fall in safe (these eyes these eyes) And will it hurt When I find my sweet (we fall) I have to find All of that heat Right before we burn right before she (She was too sensitive) right before she right before she fall into the fire ooh right before she 3x And on its side Ooh much too sensitive fall into the fire the fallen fire Much too sensitive And on its side Sensitive the fallen fire Eeeeeehhhh oohhhhh We took a chance On fortunate hands

MITOLOGÍAS

“Un amplio espacio nos rodeó, caminando a través del aire -- “

Cuerpos foreanos flotan, imperceptibles, puntos en el firmamento. ¿ El firmamento de quién?

Mira hacia arriba. Nos reunimos bajo la luna. Humano, femenino. Sincronizado, los elementos para formar un cuerpo, los cuerpos para formar una máquina.

“Santa ola, Santa ola -- “

El cíborg habla. Un conjuro. El otoño de la matriarca. Mira hacia arriba--cuerpos foreanos flotan, la salida poderosa, un espacio abierto. Somos moldeados en un nuevo brillo, una luz suave, una calma desconocida, que no es de esta tierra pero de otra.

Mira hacia arriba -- la segunda luna aparece.
