about

this was recorded over a winter, spring and summer. pored over and redone and mixed and mixed and mixed again. a monument to our friendship. our attempt at legitimizing this little project we have. lyrically, a dissection of the death rattle of the rust belt. and high school troubles. sonically, a pastiche of bands we love: lcd soundsystem, interpol, iceage, radiohead, etc etc.

we think you'll love it.

Track Name: Stay
feeling kinda warm and dry in a pseudo-static place
and my only comfort is in the uncontrolled displaced
reeling misfortune at the hands, but you knew them well

stay

i wish i had something real in my existential doubts
writhing in the leaking corpses and shedding essence out
i say i'll change, but i never really change a thing

stay

(do you want to stay?)
Track Name: Underground Babe
can't see why anyone would want me
i guess what i find desirable is just too avant-garde
woe is me, kicking cans pretentiously
out of a crack in the sky, you catch my lazy eye

you're an underground babe

slowly looking for a plan of attack when the hunter inside of me says:
"oh, for sure! it's all for sure!"
this attention is getting my head....
workers laying the atlantic line never encountered forces so bold
daddy said to eat her like a firework
Track Name: Frequencies
i heard he rattled you up when he rattled your cage
acting like you were told to act your age
everything that you see is a manufactured plage
ever since the cavemen kicked it in the cave

histrionic badgering with no intent to sing

everybody dreams of an instant crush
coming home from church with an innocent smile
we've known it for a while
Track Name: New York
irises in constant motion, catholic without devotion
baptize me, please wash me away
i can see your lips are turning
making fire, hear the burning
please just take me out of this place ophelia

percussive words and stinging burdens
making fire, hear the burning
baptize me, please wash me away
i can see my love, you're dying
claudius in sheer defiance
i can't take, for god's sake, ophelia
Track Name: Stalagmites
make up things to complain about
subject of my fascination making out
i'd be lying if i said it was true
so romanticized, my loving you

sleeping like a vampire
hanging from the ceiling
people living in the walls now
can't you hear the breathing?

i get scared when i feel confused
so romanticized, but so amused
by thoughts that came twirling from space
i'd like to at least make a change

sleeping like a vampire
hanging from the ceiling
people living in the walls now
can't you hear the breathing?

you
Track Name: Laissez-Faire
intersecting lines
happens all the time
fashion it a prize, committing a crime?
well, who is wrong when neither's right?
we hold our shame like torches' light
they hunt the young ones in the night

i can pretend the stars don't fade by you
but you know that i'm laissez-faire
and we're controlled by laissez-faire

some people
have shame, and that's good (?)
but other people have more confidence than they should
they make their neanderthalic advanced without a second thought
the good boys keep their hands on lock
Track Name: Infrastructure
shaking hand over rainbow selection grid
flowerless pools of petrol, printemps
useless arrangements combatting energy
kept in the attic with all the toys

pale grey hand
cursory glance at the newspaper stand
spontaneous poetic combustion

girl you know there's infrastructure
girl, with us there's infrastructure, too
we're both shy people, ooweeoo

flowerless petrified shock of nothingness
shattered by jesus christ superstar
another anyeurism in wedding dress
spastic constellational surprise

pale grey hand
cursory glance at the newspaper stand
spontaneous poetic combustion

girl you know there's infrastructure
girl, with us there's infrastructure, too
we're both shy people, ooweeoo
Track Name: Facepunch
i'll just get kicked in my big head
like vultures circling the red
now that all intuition's dead
begin

all spastic movements and your friends
a season pushing august in
now, we can see a clear reason
begin
