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.

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.

Track Name: Accessible
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.
Track Name: Centerline
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
Track Name: Childish
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
Track Name: Leaf
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
Track Name: Mine
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
Track Name: Moon 2
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!
Track Name: Deli Run
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
Track Name: Set It Off
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.
Track Name: Walking with an Enemy
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
Track Name: Unless
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
Track Name: On Its Side the Fallen Fire
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
