gonewayword For those nights when you just want to sip a glass of cab, puff the dab and deconstruct your soul via one of several genres I believe this band has invented, Nostalgiotherapuechedelic Rock.

Malcolm Miller Studio lets them layer and expand the sound.
Great depth.
More considered, maybe, but no less interesting. Favorite track: Breathe.

liam royale Sorcerer (ie, until I pick my other faves). The Floridian New Yorker brothers once again assert their indisputable command over some of the finest live and tuneful experimental guitar rock you are ever likely to hear.

Sorcerer is the first full-length studio album from Andy and Edwin White, the Florida / New York duo known as Tonstartssbandht, since 2011's Now I Am Become. On Sorcerer, the brothers chart a heavenly course above the storm and stress, one explored over years of touring and through a poetic language forged between performers and siblings. This is Tonstartssbandht at the height of their song - and story - craft, channeling pure motion and emotion through a soulful filter at the speed of sorcery.

Track Name: Breathe
Breathe and know you’re forgiven
Screams so peculiar to the living
It won’t keep you safe
Because end times they give notion
When it moves at you dear
You will know I am near
I won’t keep you safe
It won’t keep you safe
You won’t ask me either
That’s alright, that’s okay
You don’t wan’t someone to love so anyways
I had a soul and I’d walk in the light
Now I know nothing ever will be right
All I remember as a phrase repeats
You take a breath and it leaves with a breeze
When should we have the talk you wanna have?
It’s this existence knows and always has
Too bad what passes as a heart these days
How can we hide this light and look away?
Track Name: Sorcerer
When it meets you it takes all your powers
It completely shatters, nothing matters
Leaves you weeping, sleeping, calling after
“Oh please leave me to solve my sorrow”
Then it leaves you, you’ll feel so much better
But you’re different now, you’ve changed, you’re lesser
Oh Lord, I feel about half as bright
Ma, there’s no sorcerer can improve my mind
Oh move me! End loosely! It’s alright
Dear ma, I’m a sorcerer who don’t believe in magic anymore
Do you remember when all the magic is gone in the world?
And you realize everyone you love is gonna die?
Oh so sad lord, does this build the night?
So what's left? What'd you leave with me? All my power
Don’t be so sad lord it just takes some time
Don’t be sad lord it won’t take my mind
And I’m lost now but I’ll be walking in the light
I can’t need this and I’ll put up a fight, then I’m gone
Feel the change, know it’s not you
Pack my bags and it glows
And I’m changing so soon
Being moved up in a bubble soon
Be me you
When mirror were maybe, I liked people
Grouped off, calling often, thought I’d missed you
I’ve been fearing wrongly, and I’m rammed run round
If I can get down and rip a new hole and say i’m sorry too
Don’t be blue hon, you will see
You won’t miss me, it just takes some time to be
I’ll try to forget ever really feeling whole
All I have now is my self-control
I can’t stop shaking, I feel half as bright
I can’t stop shaking, can’t improve my mind
Hoping bones set and three-piece to Goa
Fuck so long now that I’ve passion of a ghost
Just excuse me, just kiss this light and expose
There’s no magical force to make you be happy anymore
Its so groovy that I can even describe
Just take a big hit so they never wonder why
I’m not happy with the life I’m running from
Track Name: Opening
Darlin, oh darlin
Oh darlin you are that richness in my soul
You leave me completely
Leave me where you need me
Darlin, oh darlin
Darlin you are that richness in my blood
You leave me completely
And keep me where you need me
Darlin what I’m saying is real
so if you don’t believe me that’s chill
darlin what I’m saying isn’t real
so if you don’t believe me that’s fine
I was thinking what you’re saying
“life is long as long as you’re lonely”
I was lost and you were lossless
I could smile as long as you’d see me
Darlin what I’m saying isn’t real
So if you don’t believe me that’s chill
Darlin what I’m saying isn’t real
So if you don’t believe me that’s fine
If you don’t believe me that’s chill
Alright, I’m done, I give up
Too much, too soon, I’ve lost it
Oh god, I’ve reached that secret
The end, oh it’s death, beginning
I bet you wanted to know
I bet you wanted to know with your soul
That the look in your eyes
Keeps me up in the night
Oh no no no
Oh yeah yeah yeah
Oh please please lord, reduce me
I get the feeling I’m not there
I get confused because I’m still here
And it’s a feeling in my bones
I re-arrange I ascend to home
Oh no no no, oh please please please
Oh yeah yeah lord, reduce me
This one’s for Andrew and Caryl
You double-back, change and fade away
I hope you know you’re an arrow
I miss you so much
This time it’s real you can feel it
You double-dose, trip, then fade away
I hope you know what you’re doing
I don’t know what to say to you
Softly confiding and cooling your wounds
You’re breathing so slowly that the wind is your mood
Knowing the reason you cry in your sleep
Dream us a season of the times will we weep
It goes: “I don’t want to live like this anymore”
I hear a calling, a move, a tune, a window to a world
Window open sadly it leaves you
All that pain you pray to
Curtains part, you slip through
Look away, it sees you
I climb that sea crane
Wind speak “Don’t sleep, dont cry, don’t weep”
All that joy it gave you moved so fast it broke through
Passing through the wake now, I climb that seacrane
I climb the sea crane at Yalta
I swam the Black Sea at midnight
