AUTHENLECTRICITY

Safety valves have disengaged/ Turn the, turn the, turn the page

Motors once were all the rage/ Before our nervous system left it’s cage

Into wires, into commerce, into history

Every minute, every hour, AUTHENLECTRICITY

 

We are pastiche/ Outmode, source code, security breach

To what we cling, brings to, to the beach/ The saturation of time

To the leisure, to the head count, to the factory

Every minute, every hour, AUTHENLECTRICITY

EVERY MINUTE, EVERY HOUR, AUTHENLECTRICITY

 

All night fountains calling out

All I want is to pour out

 

WindTruStar

the flame needs dark for it to shine
let’s take a walk through full moon light

and when the forces that
follow behind, ever remind
soft and hard, electric charge for windtrustar
shock and awe, it makes the walls fall
and when your small

to contemplate, impossible
paradox, wind and the rocks
sleep and thaw, it melts the hard thoughts of true cause
sprint or crawl, you won’t get far
and when you fall

WindTruStar also appears on a compilation recently released on Denmark Records out of North Carolina. It features electronic music acts from the all over the SouthEast and is available for free here. Check it out!

Quick Canal w/ Laetitia Sadier- Live in Portland

We’re so happy that somebody captured what is quite possibly the highlight of our musical lives so far. When we learned a day beforehand that we’ld be performing this song with Laetita it came as quite a shock, though we were all secretly hoping that someday it might happen. In Portland that night we shared a stage with three of our musical heroes: Laetitia Sadier, Trish Keenan (of Broadcast during the song Walkabout), and Bradford. What a dream!

TEMPO TEMPORAL

Our new album is finally ready!  Six songs, thirty minutes: Tempo Temporal. To celebrate we’re giving away a song for download. It’s called Resonance Alright and it’s one of our favorites. Click below:

You can hear the entire release on our Myspace page or get one from us in person if we’re coming through your town in the coming weeks.

A few people have really gone the extra mile to help us make this self-release possible with our limited means. Mike Wright engineered five of the six songs, threw in great ideas and let us eat all of his sunflower seeds. We recorded them at New Street Studio where our practice space shares a roof with his studio and the practice space of the Black Lips. We are working on a cosmic hotspot (made entirely of cables and cigarette butts). Graham Marsh mixed four of the songs and recorded one of them at his studio behind the Crue-famous Tattletales and the bleach soaked private rooms of Cheshire Bridge Road. Jaguzzi?! It was our first time working with him and it was a blast. Graham is the master of addition-by-subtraction and many of the little things he did greatly enhanced the songs. Deisha Oliver came by and threw on some outrageous noise for a few songs with her cello. Leticia Arioli duets on Dials and really knocked us out with her sweet voice. And we were lucky enough to be in the studio when Miss Adron returned to the A after her stint in NYC. All we had to do is hit record on Resonance Alright and she knew exactly what to do, in perfect pitch. We are very lucky to have such talented and helpful friends. Thanks ya’ll.

And a very special thanks to beautiful Julia Kubica for helping me focus & get all the files together & tie up all loose ends. Couldn’t do it without you.
