about

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).

Track Name: Strange
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....
Track Name: Stop Breathing In
...try try to get out
of this hole
there's no place like your own...
Track Name: Philosophy
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?
Track Name: Black
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...
Track Name: The Heavy Sermon
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.
Track Name: Game
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'?
Track Name: Sex Moans for a Dead Man
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?
