    45 RPM. recorded/mixed/mastered/and cut with direct analog signal. shit is dank. literally not gonna be ready til august though. i know its insane. if you are able to pony up and sit on it for 8 months, thank you. if not- i totally understand. a record label would make me wait until the LP is done, for good reason. its a pain in the ass to wait. i do this all myself on a shoestring budget- the luxury of waiting it out is not something i can afford. i'm also impatient and hate sitting on music. your support appreciated and sorry for the bullshit. out of my control. i guarantee a fine platter for you though. the test i heard was bootyful and made me cry.

    also should add that these will be sent to UK/european/japanese/australian etc distros. don't pay the insane shipping if you don't want to. im happy to mail these anywhere in the world, but they will be in your local.

lyrics

barring any hangups

I’m gonna seize the rapture

broken thumb on the hurt button

I’m twixt beyond first thought



a lot of strife is second strand

just bong loading the wrong parts

spill me into spit shine

cackling in nose bleeds



and if you see the fucker who stole my mail

tell them the debt doesn’t absolve

at best one inherits magic

pivots to a peep show



a lot of wives leave lipstick

on the end of Virginia slims

making up the markings

of Christian sex in daydreams



kept up on bulk elastic

I’m squeezed in with the salesmen

pitched in my best shoes

I walked out with a bad limp



grey scalp filled fantastic

I dipped into a strange brew

cut loose while tiered off

I’m grouped in with the wrong crew



and if you’re lucky you’ll see shells of trails

the bare bones of a bootleg trip

at least sons of bland habits

downgrade to a day job



a lot of dives don’t kill me

I can breathe in the undertow

sweating out the spirit

of static in the old shows
