about

The band's second album, Save Yourself, is deliciously thick and darker than its predecessor. Obsessive in content and grungier in its execution, every song is reclamation, recovery, or a warning of some kind. The album is a sort weather system that delivers to us a gaggle of Harpies, who—instead of being ancient harbingers of doom—come to us in a kind of timeless glory, wearing blue sequined jackets and knee high socks, ready to kiss, dance, or punch. They skate around the roller rink, scheming, while the clouds overhead crackle and glow.

Track Name: moan
i conceal nothing my dear philosopher king the rain though quiet cannot hide that it’s wet i’m over pleasure that venomous little flower i’ve had my fill but appetite remains i’ve syphoned the pus but the wound still drains i found the break but can’t set the bone i don’t feel the ache but find I’m the source of the moan fatal flaw hold pain dear i can dig it real deep this pit of despair and there build a bonfire to burn this coat of arms and lock of your hair i’ve had my fill but appetite remains i’ve syphoned the pus but the wound still drains i found the break but can’t set the bone i don’t feel the ache but find i’m the source of the moan
Track Name: girl parts
don't blame me i can't help it if it’s not what you thought it would be i thought you’d like it candy floats in your wake sweet tarts murder my open face don’t waste time just minutes in the closet are the rumors true i heard you were a big shot when you smiled at our mutual crush i was close enough to smell your lip gloss calling girl parts calling girl parts don’t look away i’m trying to figure out the moist ambiguity of your slightly parted mouth the ecstasy of the near miss not even rock and roll can cure this calling girl parts calling girl parts there is nothing we need to do that is not dangerous there is nothing that makes us feel better than that which makes us feel worse there is nothing we need to do that is not dangerous there is nothing that makes us feel better than that which makes us feel worse calling girl parts calling girl parts (“there is nothing we need to do that is not dangerous” is something john cage said.)
Track Name: feeling this
put your soul in my mouth a kiss is spit and a little vow are you feeling this are you feeling this just a prayer and a little spit and you’ll be feeling this put your loving hand in mine a handshake is the temporary marriage of our lifelines are you feeling this are you feeling this a little pressure and a downward shift and you’ll be feeling this here’s the chorus we all want la la la la la
Track Name: save yourself
save yourself time will come for me i’ll be here or there eventually i’d move if I thought it wouldn’t hurt and live a life of adventure but some days some days some days really do a number rocky mountain headed boy the specter of waiting had me overjoyed and i went back to the scene of the crime man did we know how to have a good time to kiss to kiss is to confess what truths did pass between our lips but i waited i waited i waited so long ‘til the waiting ran out the waiting was gone rocky mountain headed boy the specter of waiting had me overjoyed and I went back to the scene of the crime man did we know how to have a good time
