about

Written, recorded, and performed over the course of two weeks in Portland, Oregon in November of 2011. We had Thanksgiving together.

Dogs. Parsifal. Stairs. Driving around and listening to music. Sleeping in places and on things. Dogs. Feeling good about people in your life. Intimacy. Earth cracking.

about

Ben Seretan & The Early Portland, Oregon

We've worked separately on different coasts of America and this is us now coming together to play. Ben's from California originally, the Early from New Jersey. Ben works at a movie theater. Did I mention that Jake plays the saxophone on this record? Amfortas has been injured by his own holy spear, and the wound will not heal. Zum Raum wird hier die Zeit. ... more

Track Name: All Dogs
I Nine Five
On time, barely alive
Fifteen miles is a drive
A drive is a drive
Have the car home by nine
Mom have the car home by nine
Up your staircase now
Famous paper staircase
All dogs shut up now
Track Name: Drive
We drove to Michigan
Sleep on the porch again
We swam Lake Michigan
Sleep on the porch again
I will wait around for you
We crowned Miss Michigan
On the streets of porcelain
I will wait around for you
Track Name: Company
I'm so happy for you
And so proud to be
In your ragged, broken
Company
Fractured ceremony
Cracks the sky
Ragged jubilation
So full of pride
Fire on the freeway
I swear to die
Under ocean heaven
Your hand in mine

I'm so happy for you
I could cry
Take the place of nothing
Fade to white
Track Name: Onion Boy
Bloom, bloom sweet onion boy
I love you
Won't you hold me a little closer?
Stay close to me

Welcome wagon, take my breath away
You were in my mirror
When you killed me, your love inside of me
Purple in your eyes and mouth

I was wild when I met you, baby
Fire licked my heels
Motorize the mattress, darling
Cruise, cruise the streets
Track Name: King of Crumbs
The brass ring fell from my grip
Trip to the moon
Sleep in the daytime
Tennessee fell in the ocean
Our drugstore home under a shipwreck

Call me the fool, wander the kingdom
I broke my bow over my knee
Honey the lids, hang by the ankles
The king of crumbs biting his thumb

Let slip the dogs of war
Track Name: California
Ryan with the Christmas lights in your eyes
Hello
Bridesmaid always
Never a bride

'Cause when I lived in California
We swallowed the sun
With each breath

Alex, my friend
Walking wet in Mystic graveyard
I'll raise a toast and bankrupt the coast

'Cause when we lived In California
My cup
Overflowed

(Feels like - California)
Track Name: the Greyhound
"November Rain" plays on MTV
You've been blowing lines all night
We'll take out your eyes
If you let the Greyhound die

Write it on your uncle's gravestone
"Et in Arcadia Ego"

Lay your soggy boots
On my windowsill
Flash your yellow teeth
I love you still

I'm through with you
Jagged ribcage sleep
You've been blowing lines all night
We'll take out your eyes
If you let the Greyhound die

Write it on the Greyhound's gravestone
"She ran fast and her heart failed her"

Lay your leather coat
On my wooden floor
Hang your hollow head
From the hinges on my door
Track Name: Two Crack
Rub your knees to make tiny violins
Lipstick on the rim of your coffee cup
Laughing with my mouth full of your thick blood
Here's my phone number. Call me anytime.

Could you ever love another?
Who do you love?
When the two of you meet the earth shall crack in two
In two

An engagement ring in a a glass of milk
Weep a honey tear
Take your hand in mine

Could you ever love another?
Who do you love?
When the two of you meet the earth shall crack in two
In two
