about

Marrow is an exploration of interfaces: acoustic/electronic, human/computer, natural/synthesized…
Marrow is the culmination of seven years of songwriting, soundscaping and soulsearching. The album features an eclectic array of instruments, both real and imaginary. Field recordings meet synthesizers, acoustic guitars play drum-n-bass, lost bedroom recordings harmonize with recent studio sessions.

Track Name: i/o
what is this wind that blows my way?
feels like a breath, ease into day

luminous flow, smoothness and twisting
who's to behold this subtle shifting?

eyes open or/and closed

i/o i/o - it's the line between
i/o i/o - it's the framing of things
it feels like we're different
but i just can't find the seems

o/i o/i - i just don't know
o/i o/i - the sun or the snow?
if everyone's dancing
then who's left to watch the show?
and if everyone's singing along
i guess that i can go...

am i mistaken for thinking there's things i control?
am i forsaken for blinking my thoughts in morse code?
Track Name: Subbasement
babe, you know its been a while
been subterranean hustling
surfacing just to see you smile
you got me bubbling, bubbling

girl, you know its just my style
these cells are still doubling
lost labrat since i was a child
do you find that troubling?

when i get home
you'll probably be asleep
my mind's still racing
tell me how can i keep from losing-
the only thing that's grounding me

it's a difficult difficult road too steep
though subterranean, i fly free
Track Name: Makes Pace
woke up, broke up, toked up - to find inner space
how am i gonna get out of myself?

broke down, wore down, tore down, to ask 'why this way'?
what am i gonna get out of myself today?

if you wanna find me on the street
i will be, i will be, i will be

woke up, broke up, dosed up - to find inner space
how am i gonna get out of myself?

broke down, tore down, slow down. why this way?
what am i gonna get out of myself today?

if you wanna find me on the street
i will be, i will be, i will be
Track Name: Feo
feo feo fame
do you really want to-
count up all of the people who know your name?
its really exciting, at least it seems so
but when it fades away are you the same?

feo feo fame
you don't really want it
just so all of these people can see your face
the press is adoring, life seems like so much more
you let it change your ways, i think that's lame

i don't want your money, i want your mind
i don't need a milli, i'd take square miles
can't keep up this lie for too much longer
can't keep up this lie for too much longer

i don't want your mula, i want your mente
this song is not for me, es por la gente
can't keep up this lie for too much longer
i won't be an i for too much longer
Track Name: mmm
heavily armed, cell phone and SUV
she broke my stride, broke my stride so literally

my bones turned to dust and my marrow leaked
she broke my stride, but now my marrow's free

there's no way that you can probe past my party story
she broke my stride, metallic marrow me

somewhere i fell asleep
and woke up without more
somewhere i fell asleep
and woke up without more morphine

heavily armed, cell phone and SUV
she broke my stride, broke it so literally
my bones they turned to dust
oh god my marrow leaked
she broke my stride, but now my marrow's free
Track Name: Human Beans
it took just one show, for things to explode
my thoughts to jump ship and reach up and then out
into the seed, where i wonder what's me
the guess of the shape of the pit of my mind
directly relates to the size of the pellet

and if i can't probe with a scalpel quite skinny enough
well i'll guess, and i'll speak to the crowd
and try to explain what i see

we'll pool all our tools and our dreams
and everyone puts in their lunch money
and we'll tell all our friends to come over and see
what they've inspired and hired by helping us be
i've been shaped by my landscape, but more by the boys
whose bellybutton magnets i gravitated towards
together we played, so innocently
rock rampaged our way to where we are now
and today they still call us the posse


well it took just one smile, and i spun wild
my thoughts they jumped ship to reach up and then out
into the place, where i don't know my own face
the disgust in the space in the back of my spine
seems to take shape from the points of our contact

and if i can't be with myself while completely alone
well i'll die, and they'll speak to the crowd
and they'll try to explain what was me

so i'll drop all my tools and my dreams
and you guys can have all my lunch money
i'll become all my friends, through their memories
which surely equilibrate into the sea
did i shape my own landscape inside of the noise?
with signals defined by the eyes that are yours
together we played so innocently
rock rampaged our way to where we are now
and today they still call us human beans
Track Name: 12 Steppin'
every now, and every then
when i get the truth stuck in my head
i was waiting in the car
you were fuckin' my best friend

every twist, and every bend
when i get your shoe stuck in my head
i went for you, but now it's mine
i need to go back to twelve steppin'

was there a solid truth behind-
your swollen 'ani' eyes?
that hinted at the problem
the source of all the lies

and if i had only seen it all
every gram in every bathroom stall
could we have solved the problem?
could i have stopped the fall?

i don't know what i was thinkin'
when i caught the buzzsaw drinkin'
i broke into my workshop early
uninvited to my toolbox party

now every kid's a genius kid
because they eat potato bread
i can't it through my head
i need to go back to twelve steppin'
Track Name: Echo Mountain
in the delta, in the delta t
there was a leave whose veins broke free
unbounded and searching, not having not wanting
just feedbacking feedbacking feelers to infinity

in the schema, the greater scheme of things
two seen one, destroy duality
locked into mechanics, i can't break the habit-
of trusting the basis immediately

i'm faded and phased, out of sync with the maze-
of fluorescent creatures stuck swimmin'
i've got to catch my zebrafish
the eyes might give signs of the mind's current state
but in between slices my thoughts seem to vanish

head in the smog, i'm landsliding
grow and erode, echo
head in the smog, i'm landsliding
grow and erode, echo mountain

are you bitchin' or buildin'?
are you feeling empty? well good
are you whining or working?
well don't you act like you could choose nada?

wheels of steel and industrial pride
gears of a capital capital
believe me, i lament and i'm on your side-
but the focus is progress, not pity

wheels of steel and industrial pride
gears of a capital drive
believe me, i lament and i'm on your side-
but the focus is progress, not pity

choose nada / choose another
Track Name: Venture Anon
went down to a brand new place
ate cake, read big books and big faces

don't panic

i knew, sooner or later, i knew you'd sniff me out

keep coming back, it works if you work it
Track Name: Embankment
deep river - wind my way, wind my way
come hither, i'll build the banks, build the banks

sweet sinner - show your face, show your face
it's that central shiver that drifts away, drifts away

healed winner - find my grave, find my grave
you're thinner than the wisp of smoke that floats away

great giver - light the way, light the way
undithered, your signal pulses with the days
