about

This album was the result of an attempt at RPM2012. I ended up happy with what I wrote that month but wanted to spend more time developing them and perfecting the live looping process. All nine tracks were recorded live with no prerecorded loops.

All tracks were recording using Audiomulch, and all but three used Audiomulch's LiveLooper: "Slow Leak" used a modified mlr for looping, and "Summer Dress" and "5.59" have no loops (so no looper).

Post-processing and mixing was done in Pro Tools.

All music written, performed, recorded and produced by chawps.

Track Name: Liftoff
[instrumental]
Track Name: Revolving Doors
Like revolving doors
We're pushed around
And once inside
We can't tell
From where we came
Or where to go

Like revolving doors
We're pushed around
And we can't choose
When it stops
When it stops
It never stops

Like revolving doors
We spin around
Until we find
Our way out
Our way out
Our way out

Like revolving doors
We spin around
Until we find
Our way out
Our way out
Our way out
Track Name: Summer Dress
And there you were
With flowers in your hair
A summer dress
Those rings you always wear
You took my hand
And led me through the trees
We found a place
Where we could be in peace
Where we could be in peace

You sat me down
And told me not to follow
Your words were clear
But echoed out so hollow
Our paths have crossed since then
And every time
I swear to god you're in

That summer dress
With flowers in your hair
That summer dress
With flowers in your hair
That summer dress
With flowers in your hair
That summer dress
With flowers in your hair
With flowers in your hair
Track Name: Fade Away
Please don't look at me that way
You know damn well
That's all I can say

Even this will fade away
Even this will fade away

I can't believe
How you wasted my time
Guess it serves me right

Even this will fade away
Even this will fade away
Track Name: Slow Leak
[instrumental]
Track Name: Reconnecting
The way out is back the way you came
Turn around or things won't be the same
It's up to you: stay as long as you please
But the longer you stay, the harder it is to leave
[the harder it is to leave]

You must've known that this wouldn't last
But what's so bad about leaving it in the past?
Whenever you need, you can stop by yesterday
That's where I'll be and that's where you can stay

That's where we can be
That's where we can stay
Track Name: Anchor
I'll float away
If my anchor won't stay
If my anchor won't stay

The wind will blow
And tides will grow
But will my anchor hold?
Will my anchor hold?

The storm has passed
But it won't be the last
How long will I last?
How long will I last?
