NO ANALOG TAPE WAS HARMED IN THE MAKING OF THIS RECORD

Expertly and patiently mastered at Telegraph Mastering by Adam Gonsalves

Thank you to everyone who played on this LP, I love you deeply and am honored you #blessed me with your shredding and trusted my often-oblique vision.

Further thanks to my family, Sarah, Annie, my people at Doug Fir, and everyone else (human & dog) in my life who fill my days with joy.

extra special thanks to the people who took me all around the world and who I humbly learned everything I know from, particularly Wye Oak, Blitzen Trapper, Calexico, Sharon Van Etten & band, Matthew E. White and Natalie Prass and the Spacebomb galaxy of stars, Thao & the Get Down Stay Down, Fruit Bats, and everyone else I've shared vans and buses and planes and dressing rooms and stages and studios and hotel rooms and laughs and Js with.

“Facin' All the Same Tomorrows” is from Vernon Wray's album “Wasted”; even better is him and his brother Link's awesome “Wray's 3-Track Shack”.

Katie Von Schleicher is one of my best friends and a good egg - “You on My Mind" is on her 2012 record “Silent Days”, but 2015's “Bleaksploitation” is devastating.

Track Name: I'll Come Careenin'
let our voices travel
hear our thoughts unravel into calm
salt and pepper's getting whiter
night keeps getting nighter til it gets dawn
feels like I'm receding
listen to my meager breathing

well honey, I'll come careening
when you need it
believe me, I'm gonna remember
you better don't, you better never I'm gonna remember

honey he might come collecting
any minute when we're least expecting
I'd be out on the street if it
wasn't for your quicker thinking
for you it comes so easy
I've got degrees of difficulty
it feels like I'm receding
listen to my meager breathing

well honey, I'll come careening
when you need it
believe me, I'm gonna remember
you better don't, you better never I'm gonna remember
Track Name: (Don't Make Me Go) Downtown
downtown
don't make me go downtown
I'm a hang-around-the-neighborhood kinda guy

I wanna go to the
Ty Segall show
unless it's downtown
then I don't wanna go

I'd love to say that I saw
Thee Oh Sees play at that
former porno theater downtown

but the #4 bus always
takes forever to get me downtown
so I don't wanna go

I can always see
Sonny & the Sunsets when they
play at Mississippi, it's closer to me
cuz I worked late last night
so if it's quite alright
you can go downtown, but I don't wanna go
you can go downtown, I'm staying at home
you can go downtown, you can't make me go
Track Name: Luna de Miel
todas las estrellas
lo cantan
diciendo como te extraño
te extraño hoy

luna de miel, volver
luna de miel, por favor
te pido por favor

parece que es un sueño
la luz tan claro en mi ventana
manda besos a Mercurio
luna de miel, volver
luna de miel, por favor
te pido por favor
te pido por favor

(translation:
All the stars are singing
they're saying how much I miss you today
honey moon, come back
honey moon, please
I'm beggin please
it looks like it's a dream
the light so clear in my window
send my love to Mercury)
Track Name: Facin' All the Same Tomorrows (Vernon Wray)
you talk about the things you've got
but a whole lot of things don't mean a lot
you talk about the good times you've had
but time is just a place
and things they waste away
so what is a lot of nothing

facing all the same tomorrows

now your people's gone
and you're left standing all alone
you're right back where it started
when you try again
just face it with a grin
and good fortunes'll come your way tomorrow

facing all the same tomorrows

you think you are so very young
you know all that songs that've been sung
you know you're in for just a delusion
when you turn around and find yourself back on the ground
you'll be facing all the same tomorrows

facing all the same tomorrows

so listen to me my friend
don't turn your back again
to what you think is sorrow
cuz life is just a murk
in the fog you're just a drip
and you are really going nowhere

facing all the same tomorrows
Track Name: Currents
I was moving through the currents
and climbing over rocks
kept slippin on the moss and fallin flat down on my ass

at first I tried to fight it
and make my way to shore
I just fell down on my ass some more

eventually I gave in
became part of the stream
looked up and counted the shades of green

so I just sat there
gave up the controls
let the currents become my home

my feet were covered
in a multitude of cuts
I left with a giant bruise on my butt
Track Name: Beaujolais for Bob Dylan
You always drag me to these things
I'm yawnin while you're dolin out bon mots

You're the only woman that I know
who could play the part of Dylan in a film

a pair of eyeballs on the wall
you take in every man's point of view
back of the room, exuding mood
drinking Beaujolais
from the bottle
You said you could taste all the notes
And proceeded to rattle off a few

Pomegranate, blueberry and plum
chartreuse, jasmine, heather too
but the only ones I tasted were the fruit

a pair of eardrums, playin dumb
only half listening to tell the truth

back of the room, exuding mood
drinking Beaujolais
from the bottle

back of the room, brooding
you'll leave discreetly when this bottle's through
Track Name: Flirtin'
I know you can see us
talking closely
it probably looks bad from your point of view
I assure you it's harmless
in fact we were just talking about you

I'm just flirtin
Nothing particular in mind
while I'm waiting
waiting for you to arrive
and when you do
I'll be on my feet
reet petite
and then I'll repeat
I'm just flirting
while I'm waiting for you to arrive

if you'd only let me be your moonlight mechanic
we could drive into the sunrise together
but tomorrow might not come
if I have to face it alone
so just in case you don't show

I'm just flirtin
Nothing particular in mind
while I'm waiting
waiting for you to arrive
and when you do
I'll be on my feet
reet petite
and then I'll repeat
I'm just flirting
while I'm waiting for you to arrive
Track Name: Algo En Tu Alma
sos mi mejor amigo en este mundo
aspiro de acercarme a tu valor
un fuego cuando estoy muriendo del frío

es algo que tienes en tu alma

siempre estas juntando nuevos amigos
la gente se reúne al tu rededor
buscando un poquito de tu calor

es algo que tienes en tu alma
es algo que tienes en tu corazón

cuando caminamos debajo de la lluvia
dejo mis paraguas sin miedo
porque bajo de tu sonrisa soy protegido

es algo que tienes en tu alma
es algo que tienes en tu corazón

(translation:
you're my best friend in this world
I aspire to be as brave as you
a fire when I'm dying from cold
it's something you've got in your soul
you're always collecting new friends
people gather around you
looking for a little of your heat
it's something you've got in your soul
it's something you've got in your heart
when we're walking beneath the rain
I leave my umbrella without fear
because I'm protected below your smile)
Track Name: You on My Mind (Katie Von Schleicher)
Oh, if only I could see
where mood roams
made under stuff of the morn
where darkness grows

I wonder after you
how I need to save your place
your touch landin somewhere new but
I'd be a damned fool not to forgive you

wouldn't it be lonely without you on my mind
I'd miss you sometimes
when nothing felt new
I get to worryin as the night closes in
all tight like a match that's burned to its end

man I won't burst til baby comes shadowin' home
in the easy dawn
I've got a feelin and I
need you to give me sincere
maybe give it long but short of words
don't let it go on
wouldn't it be lonely without you on my mind
I'd miss you sometimes
when nothing felt new
I get to worryin as the night closes in
all tight like a match that's burned to its end

and it's a wonder man can make his mind up to forgive without
burning through that which he can love after skin
and the way it goes is so slow through change
Track Name: Maranatha
(Field recording)
