Dies Irae

I just painted this poster for our next show. This will be our last one for a while. We’re taking some time off from live performances, while we head into the studio to finish the album. Once we come back out, our shows are going to be much… Um… Bigger.

Nights In White Satin 

When I was a kid, during the time when I was first discovering books like The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings,he Moody Blues was my perpetual soundtrack. Seeing The Hobbit the other day made me want to cover this. So when boredom reared it’s head again, this song came to mind immediately. It ended up being a lot more fun than I expected. Maybe I’ll record a better version of it, on a day that I can actually sing, because my allergies aren’t at war with my sinuses.

Roads

I needed to try to dampen the insatiable boredom yesterday, so I through this together. Portishead is on my “too-good-to-cover” list, but fuck it. 

I recorded this yesterday as kind of a songwriting experiment. I just sorta made it up as I went along on each track. Obviously, there are tons of flaws, and I don’t think I actually hit a real note the whole time, but I was pleased with it.

run fawn
through the trees
through the meadows
everyone knows
when the hunter comes you run
when the hunter comes you run

run fawn
i’ll be right behind
with my eyes on the sky
to await the lonely sun
today’s the day we run
today’s the day we run

run fawn
through the green
with a wild heart in your chest
though your mind’s an open flame

everyone knows
everyone knows
everyone knows
everyone knows

when the hunter comes you run
everyone knows
when the hunter comes you run
everyone knows
when the hunter comes you run
everyone knows
today’s the day we run

Going Down To Die (Danzig cover) 

I’m not sure if I love Danzig, or hate him. Either way, when I can’t sleep at night, I find myself butchering his songs. Here’s one I recorded at 3am this morning. 

In a last-ditch effort to avoid doing any actual work, I recorded this extremely half-assed cover of Something I can Never Have by Nine Inch Nails. Enjoy.

Demos/ works in progress

Here’s yet another quick, simple acoustic demo that’s been floating around in my head. I’m not sure if I’m ever going to bother fleshing it out more than this. We’ll see. Anyway. I hope you like it.

Aperture

everything will come to light 
the weight of what you’re trying to hide 
make a pretty face and tell them you’re fine, but 
i’ve seen you from the other side

hold on tight

been waiting on a change of heart 
you dropped your guard and showed the spark 
i can’t pretend to know why you built those walls, but 
i’ll help you pull the stones apart

hold on tight
