about

Born out of a year of intensity & within a bipolar spectrum of wonderous and decadent, this album is meant to sympathize with brokeness of spirit & bluntly address the destruction of self-centered relationships. It was incredibly painful to write and produce this album, but I feel its harshness in communication has potential to create positive change in those who find an understanding resonance within a tired spirit or a broken spine in their pride.

released 05 March 2014

Guitars, Vocals - Fallon Braddy

Recorded via analogue mixer, microtape recorder, an M-Audio digital interface, & Audacity in my basement in Coeur d' Alene, ID
Mixing done via analogue mixer & Audacity

All DIY.

Sample in "Hope?" - Telltale Studio's game The Walking Dead: Season 1
Samples in "Hear?" - Various members of my family, a policeman, and my Mom's friend

All samples recorded and used without any sort of permission. If you feel this to be a violation of intellectual property or a misrepresentation of identity, feel free to contact me and I will make adjustments as needed to ensure mutual artistic and personal integrity.

My only regret is that I didn't get a sample of a fight between my friend and love, Ameerah, and I. Would've topped it all off, really.

Thank you to Ameerah Bader, Kevin & Schlereth Industries, Andrew Choske, Avery Strobel, Erik Carson, Joel May, Robbie Mac D, Elizabeth Tesone, Robert Weston Montgomery Jr. III, Drew Freeman, The Boys Club house, Jay Lowe, and my Mom for supporting and/or inspiring me through 2013.

about

Every Day Coeur D'Alene, Idaho

Acoustic melodic-hardcore (and lo-fi instrumentals) with the intent to connect and grow with the ears to hear.

My heart; filtered through a microtape recorder and yelled over ringing strings.

Track Name: Help?
I apologize
For being so hard to find
Whether I've fallen into a trap hole
Or sought life in islands in the sky
Isolationist, misanthropic, escapism;
My imprisonment: justified.

The only way to explain the last year of my life
Is a puzzle placement
In hands behind my back.
With the pieces composed of my face
I hope to take what I've made
And seal that face away.

Open wide my soul
"Tell yourself, 'I know'."
Look into the eyes of the Legion,
And tell him that hope has grip

Surrender all you own.
Pride here has no home.
Listen to this dissonance,
And tell yourself that love is the end.
Surrender.

Dove white crest;
Blackened Hell within.
Open my chest;
A waste of shed skin.
Track Name: Hope?
What you see, cannot be unseen.
What you see, cannot be unbelieved.

But where are the ears to hear?

Let's beat on our chests,
Breathe with our lungs

Do we survive just to sing?

Pledge and preserve,
Take the pain from (the) being.

Am I alive just to be?
Waiting for eternity?
Stand on high and observe this grief?
Jump on a grenade for nothing?

Words are as empty
as a desert
but
as capable
as a vessel

And so I ask
Assuming the weight of the question
Is that of my heart
(Must I exist without resolution?)

Words are as empty
as a desert
but
I must strive
To make them count.
Track Name: Be Free/Leave Me
Judgement call:
You just pull the trigger right?
You will fall;
You will be fine.
