about

Focusing on more layered atmospheric textures and varied styles of songwriting, this 12-song album, Wild Streaks & Windy Days, was self-released at SXSW 2008 to positive reviews. Barrett King of Baltimore's Sën magazine compared the sound of the album to that of other space rock acts like Pink Floyd and David Bowie, while LA Cityzine praised its "rich lyrical offerings and strong musicianship". The Lemur Blog in Sweden wrote, "The result is spaced out, it's probably the best space rock album you can find within the scrutinized confines of 2008." The Music Reviewer gave the album a 9.0/10 and said, "It's an amazing mix of the past and the present, without being too much of either. It's a group that you'll hear more of in the future, and it's a group that knows how to pay homage to – and not just copy – their idols from the past." Indiecision blog described this album's sound as "if Failure and Pink Floyd got together to drink mushroom tea out of fancy little teacups and chase the white rabbit with Brian Eno and Robert Smith".

Track Name: Dark Side of The Moog
Face your fear
Before you turn out the light
Come in darkness
Kiss your kids goodbye
Our time machine
Is set to orange glow
Seven years from now
What will we know?

Travel back
to watch the queen in love
Travel back
to watch the silver dove
Travel back
to where the stars intertwine
Travel back
to where we lost our mind

On the dark side
You can sell your sin
On the dark side
You will never win
On the dark side
Where we stayed up all night
On the dark side
Where you saved my life
Track Name: Brighter
You’ve been such a nag
Where did we go wrong?
You’ve been a giant drag
With that siren song
I don’t want to, be lied to
We’re coming back two by two

You’ve been calling
I’ve been stalling
You’ve been fading
Baby, I’ve been dating
I don’t want to, confuse you
Or be tangled up in voodoo

You want to be free? Stop selling what you need
You want to be true? It made a liar out of you
On the interstate
It’s where we stay up late
It’s what your brother had
It’s what you hid from dad
I don’t want to, conform too
Please tell me what would you do?

I’ve been ringside
I’ve been a thrill ride
You’ve been waiting
Baby, I’ve been weighed in
I don’t want to, confuse you
Or be tangled up in voodoo

You want to be free?
It made a liar out of me
You want to be true?
It made a liar out of you
Track Name: Lower
I’m starting to
See everything will be alright
I’ve been out all night
Avoiding this fight
I went downtown
My name’s on the street
It’s been so dry
Avoiding the heat

Take a ride on Riverside
All my friends, we all get high
No one knows what their gonna buy
Drop top popping everything in sight
Well, darkness comes I wanna buy
All that rock and roll to light the way
All that coke, all that speed
All that dope and all that weed

It’s over
Been running around this town
I’m lower
Been running around this town
I’m sober
Been running around this town
I’m low

The whole world is sick and tired about
"Whatcha gonna do tonight"
The whole world is sick and tired about
"Whatcha gonna do with your life?"
The whole world is sick and tired about
Sick and tired about Sick and tired about
The whole world

It’s over
Quit running around this town
I’m lower
Quit running around this town
I’m sober
Quit running around this town
I’m low
Track Name: Hopscotch & Sodapop
Decide
To break the mirror
Look around
It’s on the ground
This time
Things are much clearer
This time

Be yourself
You’re in that mirror
Look around, forget the ground
And watch the sky
Be yourself
You are that figure
Look around won’t hear a sound
And wonder why
At your pace
Time moves like quicksand
This race
Is out of hand
Your tongue
It tastes like daggers
What fun

Be yourself
You’re in that mirror
'Look around, forget the ground
And watch the sky
Be yourself
You are that figure
Look around, it’s so profound
You gotta try
Darling you’re the one in that mirror
Darling you’re the one in the sky
Darling you don’t have to run for cover
Decide
Track Name: Hanging with the Wrong Crowd
She’s a sex assassin
She’s been coming for days
She’s not the main attraction
She’s a phase
She’s a new arrival
On company time
We kiss and kiss in the bathroom
Go make up your mind

You’ve been seen
You’ve been hanging with the wrong crowd
In a limousine
You’ve been hanging with the wrong crowd
Trade away your mind for a piece of glass
For a piece of crowd

She’s got a new intention
It’s a digital exchange
She’s been draining your pension
For some change
It’s a new emotion
This one we know for sure
We kiss and kiss in the bathroom
She’s such a whore
You’ve been seen
You’ve been hanging with the wrong crowd
In a limousine
You’ve been hanging with he wrong crowd
Trade away your mind for a piece of grass
For a piece of ground
From way up here there’s no way down

What’d you expect to find (What did you want?)
Wishing for miracles (For miracles?)
You’ve been around two days (You’ve been around!) Everything hurts the same (It hurts the same)
You’ve been around my waist (You’ve been around) You’ve been around my brain (You get around!)
You get around
Everyone knows you get around!

You’ve been seen
In a limousine
You’ve been seen
It makes me want to scream
You’re obscene
You’ve been all through my dreams (You’re in my dreams)
You get around
Everyone knows you get around

All my lives have led to this
How many wishes do you wish?
All those rocks you saw before
Now, you want to sleep on my floor?
You’ve been around two days
You’ve been around my waist
You get around
Now we’re all hanging with the wrong crowd

She’s such a whore!
Track Name: Muerta
Look who’s
In the room
Black-hearted
Imposter
Bearing ruin

Goodbye

Down with an octopus
Clear water
Longing to fly
On the shore of a memory
Black water, wading to die
You try
You try
You die
You fly

You, I was right about you
You, I will write about you
You, I was right about you
Track Name: Scoundrel
Still breathing
As she walks for a drink
Valhalla
In her kitchen sink
Salt shaker
Full of lust and love
Ice breaker
This one comes from above
It’s a recipe for disaster
Anyway you slice it

Turn your back to the wind
And spit out your sins
And get back to the life
You’ve been living
I told you, every little thing
And you turned on me
I pray you can open up and see
What you mean to me
You wanted it high
I’ll give you high
With so much soul
And so much life
You’re finally free
Finally free
I told you every little dream
I showed you every one of my schemes
And you
Turned On Me
Track Name: Freedom
Freedom.
Is it in our labor?
(NO!NO!NO!NO!NO!)
Freedom.
Is it caked on a razor?
(NO!NO!NO!NO!NO!)
You roll your eyes
Touching down tonight
You will find truth
In the drugs you do

Freedom Real or illusion? (Are you getting’ high?) Freedom. Another revolution? (Can you tell me why?) Six a.m. and I want to go home
Touch your blade to the bone
You will find truth
In the drugs you choose
Wait (talk talk talk talk talk talk talk talk)
next to me (talk talk talk talk talk talk talk talk)
You will breathe (talk talk talk talk talk talk talk talk) Ecstasy (talk talk talk talk talk talk talk talk)
I’m free
Track Name: Timing
It’s the timing
The conversations
Last for fourteen hours
Fighting off demons

It’s the timing
The calibrating
Has got us roller skating
Through New York

It’s the timing
The celebrating
Got you coming in fading
Got you coming in praying
It’s the timing
It’s that time again
It’s time to start feeling
It’s time to start healing

You could have had it all
Had it all
But you went back for more
You went back for more
In that movie
That you’ve been writing
It’s another war

Some of the rides you’ve been riding (Can you feel it?) Some of the crimes gone bad (You’ll know when!)
Some of the wrongs you’ve been righting (Will blow away!)
Some of the best times we had

We could have had it all
Had it all
But we went back for more
And we went back for more

Three people saved
Now we’re laughing about it
Three people say
"Now we have it all"
Track Name: The Art of Pushing Me Away
Sold your soul, to a girl in the pawn shop
You’ll be sorry
Now-a-days, you know it’s all for nothing
You’ll be sorry
I tried to burn
All of the things we learned
It’s an overthrow
After all we’ve been through
Now you’re pushing me away

Are you pushing me away?

Your sister goes into a church, for a shotgun
You’ll be sorry
Now-a-days, every good girl’s got to have one
You’ll be sorry
I’ll take it slow
Sometimes the wind won’t blow
It’s another bet
Starting to shrink
The art of pushing me away
Pushing me away

Are you pushing me away?

I tried to learn
I tried to burn
I tried to turn
Inside out
After all our times
After all our crimes

Now you’re pushing me away
Pushing me away
Now you’re pushing me away?
Track Name: Dance With Meow
Back of the room
It’s a political tomb
Bury
Slip of the tongue
Spell out a gun
Worry
Sign on the dotted line
Hurry

Dance with meow
Take a chance with meow
Kitty
Dream with meow
Come and scream with me now
Kitty

Took a long time
Tried to figure it out
Took a long time
Tried to work it out, for me
Took a long time
Tried to figure it out
Took a long time
Tried to scream and shout

Baby Dance with me now
Take a chance with me now
Find romance with me now
Then we’ll swallow it down
Then we’ll run all around
We’ll be the talk of the town
Took a long time
Tried to figure it out
Took a long time
Tried to work it out
Took a long time
Tried to smoke it out
Took a long time
Tried to cook it out
Took a long time
Tried to scream and shout
Dirty
Track Name: Wild Streaks & Windy Days
Wild streaks
And, windy, days
Blowing all my, friends around
A nightly parade
We slowly, fade
Pressing our way
Through the crowd

Wild Streaks
Like we warned about
Windy Days
Blow our hope, around
Screening all the calls
Now no one calls, at all
Haunted by, right and wrong
