lyrics:

this is the ache inside
this is darkness in my hand
keep me in line, keep me in line

so this is the road that I get lost on
it’s a matter of time
a twist in the road and I’ll be gone now
it’s a matter of time
just a matter of time

black, black is the tide
black water running down
and I get crazy I get blind
raise my hands and start to drown
throw me a line, throw me a line

so this is the road that I get lost on
it’s a matter of time
a twist in the road and I’ll be gone now
it’s a matter of time
and I know there’s a place that I belong yeah
and I know there’s a way where I’ll come home now
it’s a matter of time
just a matter of time

December 30th, 2014

as part of our world-wide thank you tour (ok, it’s not really a tour and it’s not yet world-wide) i’ll be coming to atlanta on saturday january 10 for a solo acoustic show. i’ll be headlining the atlanta room at smith’s olde bar, 1578 piedmont avenue. i go on around 11 (sorry it’s so late) but i’ll stick around after to sign stuff and chat and drink beer. you can get tickets right here. please like and share the facebook event to help get the word out.

hope to see you there!

crazy-ass christmas sale

December 4th, 2014

3fer_ShopImage

hey everyone, hope you’re gearing up for a great holiday season. we’re going a little nuts over here so check it out—

CDs are on sale! get yourself a copy of the new album, a raven has my heart, as well as black lab unplugged and passion leaves a trace3 CDs for $18! that’s half off! you can refresh your collection and have a coupla cheap gifts to boot!

as you may know, andy and i have had the chance to play live a lot this year. thanks to your amazing support of our kickstarter, our shows in LA and NYC, as well as the solo shows i’ve done in austin, london and dublin, we’re getting to connect with you all like we haven’t in years. and it’s awesome.

thank you once again for supporting us, for coming out to shows and continuing to spend your hard-earned cash on independent music. your devotion is proving that music isn’t just a commodity. when music becomes the new free-shipping, another trinket the big corporations can throw in the bag to help entice more shopping, then real music dies. you guys are the antidote to this attitude, and we’re really grateful.

if you haven’t visited the facebook page in a while, check out photos and video of our recent shows, etc. it’s becoming less and less possible for you to receive our posts so we’re hoping you’ll make the trek over to the page on a regular basis.

meanwhile, look for me in atlanta in january and hopefully andy and i will be playing another show in LA soon.

thanks again!

paul

black lab on house, m.d. c2011

December 2nd, 2014

i put this up recently for everyone who didn’t get to see it. the whole episode is worth checking out (peter gabriel sings arcade fire’s ‘my body is a cage’ later in the show), but nothing beats this opening. this is actually how the episode starts — no title, no sound, just the song and the image of the bull emerging from darkness. awesome.
