    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.

Published by Head With Wings Music/Pubco/BMI.

shelia has a cat, she pets the cat
puts a spell on the cat, a beautifully cat
shelia has a cat, she pets the cat
yeah the beautiful cat says shelia shelia

shelia has a cat, she pets the cat
puts a spell on the cat, a beautiful cat
she takes the cat, looks him in the eyes
makes him reply shelia shelia

oh most gracious of beings
oh most gracious of beings my queen
i'm yours to command
yours to command
i'm yours to command shelia shelia

shelia has a cat, she pets the cat
puts a spell on the cat
she runs her fingers down his back
cause shelia has a cat, puts a spell on the cat
looks him in the eyes, makes him reply
shelia shelia
shelia shelia
