A folk/pop song that has mutated into something sinister.

Recorded and mixed by Andrew Horton

Todd: Guitars, bass, and vocals
Dave: Drums and keys

This one took about 2 years of on-and-off sessions to finally get done.
Todd started with an idea of a really strange vocal treatment that is too involved to get into here, that just didn't work out. Let's just say that it involved multiple vocalists and it was too tough.
So we started over again, from scratch, and I think that we nailed it.
Plus: NINE tracks of guitar harmonies!

Uploaded MASTERED file on 11/7/2014.



When we pushed
Out of winter
We went right through the summer
And straight into the fall
Then we fell
And kept on falling
The world was a blur
As we tried to grasp it all

But we couldn’t find the handle
And it all just sort of slipped away
We were flailing in the dark
And smashed whatever got in our way

The more that we touched
The more we smashed to dust
But we do what we must

AND WE’RE SPINNING
WE’RE SPINNING
WE’RE SPINNING BUT WE’RE STANDING STILL

We smashed
Through our changes
Until we came upon a time
When there was nothing left to change
And we broke
All our mirrors
But the same old faces
Stared right back our way

But we couldn’t find a quiet spot
To get another start
Every new beginning
Very quickly fell apart

And the more that we touched
The more we smashed to dust
But we do what we must

AND WE’RE SPINNING
WE’RE SPINNING
WE’RE SPINNING BUT WE’RE STANDING STILL

The more that we touched
The more we smashed to dust
But we do what we must

AND WE’RE SPINNING
WE’RE SPINNING
WE’RE SPINNING BUT WE’RE STANDING STILL

Spaceboy
Excellent strange pop track..Love the vibe and arrangement here - Very creative n evocative..Great lyric,music,instrumentation..Fab..This one's orbiting our solar system at lightening speed and has been picked up on Spaceboys cosmo-pod and sent him into a cosmic twizzle of truly epic proportions..


The Good Stuff: VI
After nearly 1.5 years of messing around with this one, I'm finally releasing it! I listen and hear a couple of things here and there that I would like to tweak, but I think that it's really just time for me to let it go and call it done. Hope that you dig it. I, personally, think that it's pretty cool.

oh boy, Todd has killed it on this one, what a great tune, immediately engaging and so smooth as a grooving vibe, way cool on the synth on that great hook" we're spinning but standing still. eYe dig the track, catchy and stellar lyrically content and musicianship. and those vocals, outstanding, I think IMO one of Todds best tunes to date, definitely hitline material.


Over The Moon Two
How good to see a new track from Tod - especially such a great one! Really like this one - unusual rhythmics on the lyrics and interesting backing guitar work.
