about

This is a 12" containing five tracks and is a co-release with strictly no capital letters, wolf town diy, eat a book records and good post day records who are all based in the UK. This is rs003 and is available as of 11th January 2015 in Australia.

"And you coast upright on the left side, following but not quite the main road as not you but maybe the city or its gravity pulls you home. And as you pass tar-mac, state school campus, mid-demolition high-rise you think not of this but of the Trent at seventeen in the summer, where sometimes you’d swim downstream and still think not of that but of your sisters, somewhere smoking slow-burning ten decks together alone.
And all the while the prescriptions of your eyes rise whilst you strain to make out the landscape painting from his parents’ house, or watch the West Memphis Three released on TV at last but not free in spite of all accounts, or lie face down with your eyes closed and awake on the rented couch to visualise the view of being on the edge or thereabouts"

Track Name: Words Of All Kinds
I’m not staying up
To do enough
Or leaving much at all

And it’s not slight enough
To be slept off
Or be forgotten at all

And if it were up to me
I’d say it loud
Posthumously

Cause I’m not capable
Of much at all
No not at all it seems
I’m still straining to make out
The painting from your parent’s house
Whilst lying sleepless face down on the couch it wears me out
And somehow I’m still only half inclined to work it out
And remain unchanged forever on the edge or thereabouts

I’m still straining to make out
The painting from your parent’s house
Whilst lying sleepless face down on the couch it wears me out
And I know I’m still only half inclined to work it out
What a way to spend forever on the edge or thereabouts
Track Name: Somewhere
It’s always been ineffective
Always been enough to stave the symptoms off
It’s always been ineffective
And it was learnt so late

And leaves there dwindling leaves alone
Cut up and cast apart again
And leaves there dwindling leaves alone
Deep into ill dealt discordance

It was not in perspective
Wasn’t quite close enough to walk across
It was not in perspective
Though it was light so late

Pull down the blinds,
Don’t let the light in
Cover your eyes
Maybe if you sleep for years

The outside will morph
Into something more
Something that you
Can finally relate to

There is a home
Behind each door
Flooded with light
Still there is no home for you
Track Name: 300 Hz
With talk of the armament
And forcibly
Had you surrounded

300hz frequencies
Purposely
Were never accounted
0 5 0 2 ninety four
This is not your lot in life
But how will you ever make it out
When there is such little light
And strong divide

And in the end we both showed signs of parts unfolding
In the end with parts left uncombined
And in the end we both showed signs of parts unfolding
In the end with parts left undefined
Track Name: Nothing Feels Real
When I think what could have come of us, If I’d have seen better things instead and the days hadn't seemed quite so dark, close to the border and nothing feels real anymore.
The last light, and hallowed hollow of your words
To find a subtle humor as I step towards that line

You perceived it with patience but powerless to inherit your father’s line
Shaped to befit his cadence and introspect hard to resist but ill-consigned

(It’s not the point of it
It’s just the truth
And that is all I want for you)
Track Name: The Fatal Flaw
This planetary fascination can make things hard to explain
Drafting lines from A to somewhere you can’t see
Maybe I’ll try maybe I will but I doubt it
When at last I tried it was later than I thought

So fortunate, you fall upon your feet this time
This time the fail safe luck you count on keeps you
But it won’t work out again
