steveinsocal "...The album is arguably one of this year's most beguiling releases and certainly one of the more challenging, but conversely the most enjoyable to review... is "Star Dust" lo-fi, indie, psychedelic, folk (or psychedelia-folk, as I read somewhere) or all - or indeed, none - of the above? Frankly, when an album sounds this good, who cares?"

about

Released by: Gazelle Recordings

Star Dust was recorded in many different houses across the United States. It began when I started touring with Foxygen in 2012. From Los Angeles, to Olympia, Washington to Woodstock, Connecticut. This was a project that aimed for other galaxies but exploded into Star Dust along the way. I started the project in a shed with a tape machine in Woodstock Connecticut, continued recording in Olympia Washington, & finished it in Los Angeles, Calfiornia This album is dedicated to Maia Hisamoto, who sat in the living room with us brainstorming this album. She died suddenly a week before her 24th birthday of the flu while I was on tour. Maia was not only my best friend but my biggest fan. She believed in me and this album more than anyone involved with it.

Thank You to: my family (including 4 legged friends), everyone at The Guest House, Gazelle Recordings, “ The Dave’s in Connecticut” Dave Person, Dave Sullivan, The Evangelical Covenant Church of Woodstock, Connecticut, Augustus Green, Eliel Fionn, Jacqueline Caruso, Jeffrey Vaughn, Michael Miller, Lindsy Carmen, Robyn Crawford, Alex River, Teo Castillion ,my friends, and everyone who has supported me along the way. infinite love.

Track Name: Breathing Ritual
let the wind take you away from me
when you left I was scattered petals in the breeze
like an altar that was burning
could you see my heart was yearning all that time?
time, now there's no time

burning wicker, burning wax
twilight, no light, midnights coming
burning wicker, burning wax (it falls it folds it freezes over)
twilight, no light, midnight is coming

let the sea take you away from me
when the whole world's a memorial,
who will come to see?
like an altar that was burning
could you seamy heart was yearning all that time?
time, now theres no time

burning wicker, burning wax
twilight, no light, midnights coming
burning wicker, burning wax (it falls it folds it freezes over)
twilight, no light, midnight is coming

it's coming, it's coming

you've stopped it
you've changed it
you've stopped it
you've changed it

the breathing ritual
you love a moon that will never grow full
Track Name: Warrior
the years are changing our places
we're somewhere different than before
the years are changing our faces
our youth may now be worn

everyone's afraid of growing old
our faces are slates where stories should be told
everyone's afraid of growing old
our faces are slates where stories should be told

are you a warrior?
are you a warrior?
i tried to warn her
warrior heart, we are all warriors
with a leg of a bow and a foot of an arrow
i balance on scales of increase and decline
and I refuse to let my arrows go
You should not let your arrows go

they tried to fit a circle inside of a square
the matriarch turned to the patriarch and said I don't even care

it's a psychic, psychic war all the time
it's hard to get outside of your mind
a psychic, psychic war all the time
it's hard to get outside of your mind

are you a warrior?
are you a warrior?
i tried to warn her
warrior heart, we are all warriors
with a leg of a bow and a foot of an arrow
i balance on scales of increase and decline
and I refuse to let my arrows go
You should not let your arrows go

the years are changing our places
we're somewhere different than before
the years are changing our faces
my youth will not be worn
Track Name: Daddy's Gone
daddy's gone, here I come
like a freight train or a loaded gun

it doesn't matter if you lock your doors
it doesn't matter if you don't want more
you shouldn't have let me in

women wait by the windows
waiting for their loves to call
but me I aint gonna sit by no window
waiting for the glass to crack, crack
no I would just have to break it

tied up this thing like it was made of string
and I don't catch moonbeams anymore
and it's not like you can just by them in the store
no it's not like you can just buy them in the store

daddy's gone, here I come
like a freight train, or a loaded gun
but me I will not pull no trigger
I've seen enough lives split in two
Track Name: Crystal
carrying a crystal in your pocket
falling asleep I almost forgot it
old nursery rhymes trapped in a locket
falling asleep I almost forgot it

many faces of the stone were playing games with the sun
and all of your magic cannot change what has already been done
because it's already been done

you gave me your grandma's old locket
we should anchor the ship or else we'll have to dock it
you taught me the ways of the tides and the breeze
now that knowledge lives inside of me

many faces of the stone were playing games with the sun
and all of your magic cannot change what has already been done
because it's already been done

all the sailors
lost their guide
when the light house
stopped shining it's light
all the sailors
in the summertime
had to find a new guide on
waves that electrify


carrying a crystal in your pocket
falling asleep I almost forgot it
old nursery rhymes trapped in a locket
falling asleep I almost forgot it
Track Name: Sunflowers
the flowers you pick and the people you miss
each petal pulled is a confirmation or a denial
or a denial
whisper secrets into tangled hair
glitter eyes blinking mystery
all seeing I see

I can't stop thinking about sunflowers
they line the streets in my dreams and grow taller than me

you roll your R's and I'll try to whistle
no sound can come between me and my front teeth
give back the keys before we get in trouble
a circus tent and you're smoking in bed
and all the walls are red

I can't stop thinking about sunflowers
they line the streets in my dreams and grow taller than me
they are taller than me

standing in the blackberry bushes
thorns cutting my clothes
woke up in the afternoon with colors on my palms
did you know that lines are stories being told?
you were meant to swim up stream
north is south
east is west
you'll be bent but don't be bent fighting the current
you were meant to swim upstream
north is south, east is west
you'll be bent but don't be bent fighting the current

I can't stop thinking about sunflowers
they line the streets in my dreams and grow taller than me
Track Name: Casino Song
Lyrics:

when we were children we were running over history
& all that stuck to our feet was dirt
we planted a seed and we thought it would grow
but they didn't tell us didn't want us to know
the power that was in our hands
the true story of the land

where the coyote used to howl
& where the snake once bit the sky
there is a city that won't surrender to night time
take all the stars from the sky
& create constellations with the street lights
there is a city that won't (will not) surrender to night time

it calls you from your bedroom
you always want more
bet bet bet some more
lets throw away everything we've worked for

they planted a seed and we watched it grow
shiny slot machines in rows
the kind that nobody has to nobody has to water
they grow bigger and stronger on the history of slaughter

the land so rightfully ours was someone else's before
but we gave them such a special place
take all the stars from the sky
& create constellations with the street lights
there is a city that won't WILL NOT surrender to night time

beep beep beep beep go the machines
you always think I'm being mean
beep beep beep beep go the machines

when we were children we were running over history
& all that stuck to my feet was dirt
all that stuck to my skin was a sunburn
Track Name: Presence
light leaks in from the corner of the room
it softens itself against the pale pink walls
your voice is a chamber of echoes, echoes
always waking me up

you crept into my sheets
ride a roller coaster into the sea
all things in-between

you are cutting wooden blocks
shaping cylinder tubes
and I believe your presence makes the world brand new

we can take it anyway but i've learned enough to just take it today
it's true that if you run that you may fall
but if you never try you'll never fly at all
i have written a story on the inside of my eyes
it gets so hard to keep it open all the time

blink blink blink
it makes me think think think
blink blink blink
it makes me think think think

all these thoughts go back to the root
you trace the scales in musical proof
all these words go back to the root
and all these thoughts are only the truth
that I believe your presence
I believe your presence
I believe your presence makes the world brand new
Track Name: Time Warp
doing the time warp of some sort
you left me in a foreign land
now I keep on trying to come up with another plan
when you salt the shaker, do you see falling snow?
and could ground up peppers be ashes from below?

but I have stopped debating if I have seen the light
it glowed it grew it got bigger and I've only been inside
for such a little while I was only a child
younger bones with older homes

candy coated chaos I constantly crave
& it's sugar coated so that I think its okay
to tear off the wrappings and devour it down
there's something inside of me that won't allow for stillness of sound

but I have stopped debating if I have seen the light
not on the wall with a light switch
i've only been inside for such a little while
I was only a child
younger bones with older homes

where am I going?
where am I going
where am I going to go?
where am I going?
where am I going?
where am I going to go?
to go?
where am I going?
where am I going?
where am I going to go?

doing the time warp of some sort
you left me in a foreign land
now I keep on trying to come up with another plan
Track Name: Witch House
all hands on the clocked stopped
a quarter past midnight
owls woke to tell the time
to all of those who listen;
Listen!
music spins inside of atoms
blocked under a microscope

a math equation at the train station
shadows gave way to illumination
the sum of a situation
subtract me from your obligations

sleeping saints, indecent states
sip by sip drink the lemonade
on top of a ladder, under the mango tree
a shadow of a man she could not have believed
but music spins inside of atoms
blocked under a microscope

a math equation at the train station
shadows gave way to illumination
the sum of a situation
subtract me from your obligations

at night i slept in black widow rooms
clean your halls with flying broomsticks
which house is your house?
the one with the black painted door
which house is your house?
the one with the black painted door
i heard no one lives there anymore
i heard no one lives there anymore

a math equation at the train station
shadows gave way to illumination
the sum of a situation
when i met her at the crossroads
and where all souls do go
on and on and on

which house is your house?
witch house is my house
which house is your house?
witch house is my house
Track Name: Constant is the Calling
constant is the calling, constant is the crying
constant is the calling, constant is the crying


you just wanted to name your children
after beautiful things to remind them, to remind them
now people name their children after your children to remind them
to remind them of

constant is the calling, constant is the crying
do you hear the calling? do you hear the crying?

through the pines in the trees
leaves that go from gold to green
laughs that go from young to old
all of the stories that i've been told
i see you, i could see you

but you just wanted to name your children after beautiful things
to remind them, to remind them
now people name their children after your children
to remind them
to remind them

when I love I feel rivers in my wrist
is that odd? is that strange? is that odd? is that sane?

that you just wanted to name your children after beautiful things to remind them
