    This is the original CD version of A New Low. If you purchase this on bandcamp, you will also get to download the 24-bit extended version with one extra track.

    Produced in collaboration with Pete Weiss of Verdant Studio, recorded at Armory Sound, Dimension Sound Studios and Milk Row Cemetery, with art work by Lisa Deupree; songs by some of our favorite artists, including Brian Eno, Latin Playboys and Dock Boggs. Of course some Morphine chestnuts by Mr. Sandman, done in our own fashion.

    Our auxiliary drummer Jeff Allison played on two tracks and produced the opening Wind Up Radio. And our dear friend, Malian musician Boubacar Diabaté sings on an alternate version of the track Renouveau/Daman N’Diaye found on the bandcamp extended 24-bit download version; his voice is sampled for the CD version.

    We are our own worst critics, and we are really very happy with the way this thing turned out. Really, REALLY happy. We hope you enjoy our addition to the low rock universe.

The Other Side (Mark Sandman/Dana Colley) published by Head With Wings Music/Pubco/BMI (Used by permission) Going down to the river There's a man I wanna see Yea he's the ferryman He'll recognize me I'm going down now to the riverside There's a place I wanna be I'm going to talk to the ferryman He'll be expecting me I'm crossing over now to the other side Life is better there on the other side The grass is greener there on the other side And I I get even there on the other side And everything will turn out all right On the other side I'm crossing over now to the other side The other side I walked by the church house late last night Yea I walked by the church house but I didn't go inside Cause I I once slept with the preacher's wife She handed me a ticket to the other side I'm crossing over now to the other side To the other side

Well I ain't got no use for your red apple juice I ain't got no honey baby now Well, I ain't got no sugar baby now Done all I could do, all I could say I can't go on living this a way Well I ain't got no honey baby now Who'll rock the cradle, who'll sing a song, Who'll rock the cradle when I'm gone? I ain't got no honey baby now Well I ain't got no use for your red rocking chair I ain't got no honey baby here I ain't got no sugar baby now I've done all I could for to see peace with you I can't go on living this a way Well I ain't got no honey baby now Who'll rock the cradle, who'll sing a song, Who'll rock the cradle when I'm gone? Well I ain't got no honey baby now Well I ain't got no honey baby now Well I ain't got no use for your red apple juice I ain't got no honey baby now Well, I ain't got no sugar baby now...

Souvenir 06:21
Souvenir by Mark Sandman I remember meeting you, we were super low Surrounded by the sounds of saxophones And I remember being this close, but never alone You gave me a little something to take home I dropped it on the floor, I dropped it on the floor Dropped it on the floor, I dropped it If I can only remember the name that's enough for me Because names hold the key, names hold key If I can only remember the name that's enough for me Because names hold the key, names hold key Souvenir of nothing Brought home a souvenir of nothing It fits into a pocket A souvenir, a souvenir of nowhere Somewhere I've never been before I dropped it on the floor, I dropped it on the floor Dropped it on the floor, I dropped it If I can only remember the name that's enough for me Because names hold the key, names hold key If I can only remember the name that's enough for me Because names hold the key, names hold key A souvenir of nothing, a souvenir of nothing Read more: Morphine - Souvenir Lyrics | MetroLyrics
