about

All in the name of creativity…

To say that we followed an album called Slacker Blues with a prolonged silence on purpose would be giving us far too much credit. The truth is we’ve worked diligently to craft a follow up. An album that would live up to the energy and urgency of our first while hopefully showcasing our growth as artists and people, and boy let me tell you! We’re close. Interestingly what you’re listening to now isn’t it…

Rained Out EP is a collection of songs we’ve put down in the last few years, spending countless hours writing and rehearsing new material. As always experimentation is required to reach the goal.
We had the addition (and subsequent subtraction) of a new band member, including aborted album sessions in 2013 (Scream). Whiskey soaked winters recording in my living room (The Spider in Your Sugar Bowl, Expectations 421).
Impromptu covers we’ll probably never reproduce (loving cup).
A simple blues written in 5 minutes after a 3 days in a car headed west (My Mississippi River Blues)
All capped off with a beautiful performance from Robbie recorded just a couple months back. (Dry)

The quality of these recordings is all over the place. I love it. It’s a blend of experiences captured commercial free and in the moment. We offer these tracks to you FREE of charge as a way to say thank you for your patience and as an offer of good faith that the next album will be worth the wait.

Save this one for a rainy day, maybe the next time you’re plans get canceled or you’re down with a cold. Life is an inexhaustible well of experiences to draw from these are just some of ours.

with love
danny

Track Name: My Mississippi River Blues
I've been traveling riverside just like a Rolling Stone
I'm gonna roll all night if it doesn't leave me alone

See I drove all night just trying to get home to you
But when I walk through your door I find you swinging with another fool
what am I gonna do?

Guess I'll keep traveling riverside just like a Rolling Stone
With this guitar at my side I know I'll never end up alone
'cause the lord won't leave me alone
Track Name: The Spider In Your Sugar Bowl
Ive gone savage
for people with automatic weapons and time to kill
I've gone manic
for love i've never seen or felt for real

I'll be the spider in your sugar bowl
any time you need
I'll be the line you hook your sink on to
'cause I'd do that just for you

I've gone savage
for people with lives that they want to throw out the window
I've gone manic
for the days I miss and the nights I can't remember too well

I'll be the spider in your sugar bowl
any time you need
If you've got a hunger for things you can't control
I'm the one to call when you need to feed

I've gone manic at least 100 times today
I might panic but I'm not in the grave

I'll be the spider in your sugar bowl
any time you need
I'll be the lie you sink yourself in
any time you want to win
any time you need a friend

I'll be the spider in your sugar bowl
Track Name: Expectations 421
Thought I'd know what I was looking at by now
Never thought this life would ever let me down
While I'm drowning

All I've seen so far
has left me with more questions

Never thought that sound could be as silent as the winter time
Never thought that you around could be the beginning of the end
but some how here we are now

This love keeps spinning around
I feel like breaking down
This life keeps turning and I can't find the ground
Upside down

Never thought that I could be the owner of a soul so low
Never thought that what you needed to find
could take you so far from home

This life keeps spinning around
I feel like breaking down
This life keeps spinning and I can't find the ground
When I'm upside down
Track Name: Scream
You know I'm starting to get older
at least I'm feeling that way
I thought I'd get a little colder
I end up in a rage

My mind runs on the ceiling
my body crawls on the floor
I never thought I'd see you again
walking out that door

you gotta scream a little louder baby
to get what you want
you gotta scream a little louder baby
thats how my lovin' starts

You know I'm starting to get younger
at least I'm looking that way
deep in my belly there's a hunger
and it ain't going away

My mind runs on the ceiling
my body crawls on the floor
You ain't never gonna see me again
walking out that door

you gotta scream a little louder baby
to get what you want
you gotta scream a little louder baby
thats how my lovin' starts

You know i'm starting to get wiser
I'm looking up to the sky
I look around and see the same faces
Everybody getting high

Our minds runs on the ceiling
our bodies crawl on the floor
You ain't never gonna see us again
we're walking out that door

you gotta scream a little louder baby
to get what you want
you gotta scream a little louder baby
thats how my lovin' starts
Track Name: Dry
Maybe it's for the best that we give this mess a rest
its an arresting condition
Habits form alarmingly fast I must address
these problems at the core

Maybe I feel it again...
Like an underdog, when the fix is in

It can't always be this way
Same forecast on a different day
gotta get up and find another way
out of this rain

Will you keep me dry 'till the morning?

When I was young I had the influence of some
but now its gone
I guess that it changes like the waves during a sunset
one day we all have to break

Maybe I feel it again...
Like an underdog, when the fix is in

It can't always be this way
Same forecast on a different day
gotta get up and find another way
out of this rain

Will you keep me dry 'till the morning?
