about

Blood Double is the third monthly release in the Misadventures 2017 series.

These tracks were written and recorded in New York City between November 2012 and May 2013, with the exception of Infusion, which branched off during the editing process sometime in 2016. Likewise, the cover art is something I've had awaiting this project for some time.

The lyrics were conceived stream-of-consciousness beginning with Neural Sweden and then refined over a few days. They -- and the collection itself -- represent the murky world of self dialog, hazy reflection, and dream-state logic. It's often curious how such seemingly directionless formations can be twisted to correlate to later events. It is meant to be overwhelming, overpowering ... not particularly subtle.

Track Name: Neural Sweden
"Damn it," said The Duchess chomping down on her cigar
She blew our purple smoke
Climbing 'top the buttress
Turning down to see the vicar
"Oh so pastoral"

An Arab in the mountain
Foundling in the fountain
A man in the window
Underwater dragon
Solar exploration
A squid in the willow

Cast aside the reason to maintain a neural Sweden
down in Mexico
Sing memento mori and we'll dance like frozen sockeye
down in Mexico
Cast aside the reason to maintain a frozen season
down in Mexico
Track Name: Milkfat Tiamat
When the ice has melted down
and the sky is full of flame
We'll dance this mess around
and weep some other day

When the world is black with ash
and all hope has burned away
A cheer will come at last
and we'll sing, “Oh holy day.”

Dance under the fire
Flames all around
Dance under the fire
Burn this mother down

The air is gasoline
and my body is the match
I'll strike against your softest spot
and see what flames we hatch

Dance under the fire
Burn this fucker down
Dance under the fire
Burn this party down
Dance under the fire
Burn this mother down
Dance under the fire
Burn this party down
Dance under the fire
Flames all around
Dance under the fire
Burn this fucker down
Track Name: Palm The Tropics
Temptation impasse and we'll all follow
Pit polish hand parade
Spit polish palm the tropic
A winsome winding and the buffalo
Full sail into the hail down
An eager mind will wander

And full of wonder you could telephone
Whip crack the hand parade
An eager mind will wander

Spit polish princess wanders to and fro
We're on the whisper side
The Hell Storm burning down
An eager mind will wander
