Abnormal Listening Habits What Jonny Pirie said, I can't get over how this reminds me of Mars Volta and what sounds like Cedric's mellower brother on vocals and the guitar work has shades of Omar Rodríguez-López, Im sorry but it;s undeniable.

Nerve Salad Let me just start by saying I had NO IDEA what I was in for when I hit play. This, quite effortlessly, blew my feeble mind into a slushy, greasy mess. Now I love this band. Yeah, man... play it again. Alt-rock/stoner/prog. Solid guitar work, obliterating bass tone, sharp melodies, often relaxing, often biting, watery, wintery creations.... Songcrafters, crafting songs. I'm sold, dudes.

paul rote Fellas this is Swell ! Seventies prog meets 21st century desert rock . I think the seventies won out . Favorite track: Realm.

Jonny Pirie Wow, wasn’t sure what to expect from this. It’s like Mars Volta took a chill pill and just went full on Televators. Cool vibes. Favorite track: 6:37.

Bucky These swell fellas sure do make a big grand entrance into the hard rock underworld. You can't help but hear the All Them Witches influence as the record was mixed and co-produced by Ben McLeod of ATW. The debut full length brings us that sought-after bass heavy chug warped by progressive and atmospheric riffs and gentle, yet charismatic vocals. Can't get enough.

Track Name: VI
Motionless
Slow bliss
So warm
Enchanting
Tune in
Feel the grid
Mind is blooming
Planting
Alternate Universe
Highlight Reel
Come down
Saudade
As the eyes peel
Nostalgic
Ecstasy
Of what could be
Prancing in the midfield
Of little hopes and thieves
Stay awake
To fly upstream
Drain the battery
Pace
Yeild
Vicariously living a dream
To feel
Track Name: The Saga of Sir Goosenberry Jr.
The floor is lava
The floor is lava
So watch where you put your feet

Born into a world he was so unsure of
Built a reputation off a good disguise
He don't believe in a God or a Devil
A sword and a suit couldn't change his mind

The floor is lava
The floor is lava
So watch where you put your feet

Just a broken mirror in a brainwashed legion
Traveling on foot but for what prize?
A holy land with a fissure in the surface
Went left when they told him right

The floor is lava
The floor is lava
So watch where you put your feet

He's running
He's running home

He don't wanna
Don't wanna fight for the gold

He's running
He's running home

He don't wanna
Don't wanna fight for the gold

Alone in the danger of his Mother Nature
A breath from her chest shot to the sky
The wicked rain turned the man into rubble
Would you rather die than live a lie?

The floor is lava
The floor is lava
So watch where you put your...
Track Name: Dream
Dream
A sweet dream
A gift beyond belief
The vision
The fantasy
As real as the world you see
Just let go of the fight
And let the minds eye breath its' life
So come along with me
In my sweet dream
Track Name: R-E-M
Turn on
Tune in
You're gonna lose it
If you're making excuses
Track Name: Weightless
I caught the truth in a web of lies
Fell asleep and woke up my mind
Learn to listen to the voice inside
It'll turn out just fine

Float on like a feather
Regardless of the weather
To carry on

To carry on

Put on shoes
Walk outside
Take a breath
Look at the sky
Lose the watch
Forget the time
How's it feel to be alive?

Float on like a feather
Regardless of the weather
To carry on

Float on like a feather
Regardless of the weather
To carry on
Track Name: Times New Woman
Said she wanted it in fine print
Didn't think I'd have to write it down

Couldn't tell you what the fuck this is
A different song, but I like the sound

Trying
To weave blurred lines
Melting
All those plastic lies
Pour the mold
Replicate
Revise
Burn the page
And let the actions write

Said she wanted it in fine print
Didn't think I'd have to write it down

Couldn't tell you what the fuck this is
A different song, but I like the sound
Track Name: Shadow Man
Touch your face and scratch your head
and let my voice linger above your bed
Close your eyes and realize
anxiety is your fatal demise

Lay back down, back to sleep, listen to the voices float and creep.
Lay back down, back to sleep, in the corner lurking a dark being.

It's all ok, so you say.
It's all ok, It's all ok.

Try and yell to break the spell of
Shadow Man's deep sinister interest
Can not wake but can not rest
as darkness bestows weight upon your chest
Shake and sweat must not forget
the pestering what ifs that swim in your head
Check the curtain so you're certain
dark figures won't lead you to your death

Lay back down, back to sleep, listen to the voices float and creep.
Lay back down, back to sleep, in the corner lurking a dark being.

It's all ok, so you say.
It's all ok, so you say.
Track Name: Realm
The slowest hours of my life in the back of a file cabinet
Memories play tricks on me , it seems the sun don't want to rise
Recollections of the things that mattered in my perspective
Creep in on soft knees
Water to hot grease

My history in the folders crease will stand the test of time
An iron casket they lay, these daunting thoughts of mine
Finally these eyes can see as the sun brings forth the shine
There's no such thing as expertise until you're in hindsight

Welcome to my world
Welcome to my world

Sirens sing a cadence faint, it echoes down the halls
There's a ticking clock in every block upon a blank white wall
Florescent glow creates an undertone to the songs of the machine
And we are all just passengers in the midst of the unforeseen


Welcome to my world
Welcome to my world

Can I wake up?
Am I asleep?
Suddenly
There's no in between

Welcome to my world
Welcome to my world

The slowest hours of my life in the back of a file cabinet
Memories play tricks on me, I think it's time to organize
