Strange 03:42
i'm sorry for not giving you the life you needed the things you needed the love you needed i got it now took a while, but i found my ground i made my way i stand my ground it's been so strange....
...try try to get out of this hole there's no place like your own...
Philosophy 01:42
move along in the world move along in haste move along so slow i wanna quit this angst. philosophy i see you doin so well i see you all caught up in the world but what do you know?
Space Ghost 04:05
Black 05:37
where have all the times retired? it's all around me. oh can't you see we're not all there there's no time to do it again. i've got more for you it's always black...
i've got my ups and downs kinda live life weak god it's what i see that tears me down oh what a shit hole i can't believe all bumpin around smiles around what do you think? some kind of pot of gold? where the hell does that get me? i'm gettin old.
Game 03:50
open the door it's the way we play is it the long way? which way do you play? oh that's a brilliant way i love that way! are you not ashamed? are you not awake? it's erased (in a good way) you're ashamed (afraid) what other people might say. how can you say 'take it any way'?
turning a blind eye turning around to find you're at the table with nothing to offer maybe i'll take what's mine oh this may take some time even in hind sight we'll say it was a fine time. it's all trash take me down to the grave i'm going down to my knees take me i feel suddenly shaking my bones can only feel my bones shaking all the way i'm breathing cold right now oh what a feeling is it a dream?


The album was recorded live to tape on a Tascam 38.

Blue Spells is departure from our first album in sound and approach. We wrote most of these songs in our home studio (rather than writing and working them out on the road). We wanted to see what we could create with just our voices and the three instruments we play live. The result is a raw, often off-kilter, duo experience.


released November 19, 2013

Many thanks to the NXNW Records family for their support in getting the album mixed, mastered, and made on cassette tape! Produced by Yarn F Miners, Rob Bartleston, and Brandon Eggleston (tracks 5 & 6).
