“Arrête ton char!” (Stop your chariot = come off it! Don’t exaggerate - Enough already!) C’est certain que je vais prendre un rateau (It’s certain that I’ll Take the rake = to be rejected romantically) Je te donne le vent vas-y (I give you the wind, go ahead) allez prendre un bateau (go take a boat - an original Muir idiom) Tu ne me dois rien (you don’t owe me anything) Je ne te dois rien (i don’t owe you anything) Je sais bien tu en es plein (I know you’re full of it) Je suis je vous êtes vous X 2 et nous sommes nous (I am I you are you and we are we) Tu cherches la petite bête (You’re looking for the little beast = you’re looking for something to complain about) trop difficile d’etre honnete? (too hard to be honest?) Il y a quelque chose qui cloche (There’s something that bells = something’s wrong) c’est poche (it’s crappy) – avec toi je me sens seul (with you I feel alone) J’en ai ras le bol (My bowl is full = I’ve had enough) le sol sur lequel tu marches (the ground on which you walk) il y a des traces amères – c’est clair (there are bitter traces – it’s clear) avec toi c’est toujours l'hiver (with you it’s always winter) Au revoir Ciaoooo J’ai la banana! (I have a banana= I feel great!)
Thoughts form - shapes shift follow the curve of time luminous vibrations Oh the places we'll go - Oh the love that we'll know It radiates in a constant motion - you bend to me as I bend to you Thought forms - shape shifts Somewhere on the curve of time cool green shallows - violet vibrations Oh the places we'll go - Oh the love that we'll know It radiates in a constant motion - you bend to me as I bend to you


MAY 31st = National Macaroon Day and the launch of our THIRD DOUBLE!

Side A: Un industrial garage chanson with a linguistic twist! Idiomatiques comes with a healthy dose of French idioms. J'ai la banane? Il y a quelque chose qui cloche? Learn something other than 'things didn't work out in the end" while doing le twist...

Side A: Curve of Time, inspired in part by a Sveva Caetani painting, needed additional vocal sessions due to interference from Ofelia's ghost.
