about

This is LAKE's second album. Recorded at various houses in Olympia, WA, by Eli Moore on a Tascam cassette 8-track. This album features the Portland band Typhoon on many songs. Initially conceived as demos to submit to the producer Tucker Martine, we quickly realized that the recordings had too much spontaneous magic and mysteriousness to not share with the world. It was originally released as a 6 song cassette, but is now available on 12" vinyl with all 8 songs through Funkytonk Records.

about

LAKE Olympia, Washington

LAKE formed in Olympia, WA, in the summer of 2005. We strive to be real people making real music. Most of our recordings are of people in a room playing music simultaneously, sometimes with lots of fun overdubs. Our live show is generally the band playing music on real instruments and singing into microphones which are amplified through a power amplifier because we are not loud singers ... more

Track Name: Recognize
And you recognize
What's following me
You Recognize
What's following me

The Earth is following me

If you criticize
It'll already be
Recognize
You are in what you see

The Earth is following me
Track Name: River
I got the best horses that they could give me
I got an old man to saddle them up, for me
It's time to go down
To the river
Will all my courage
In a bright and colorful carriage
With no roof, no doors and no black (not a hearse)
I've taken the poison
It hurts already
Here we go now to the river
I don't want to be buried
Don't follow me
'Cause this is how we do it (This is how we do it)
Don't follow me
If you care about tradition

I let the horses go
And now we roll down into the river
And I'll slowly get out
And float downstream headfirst
It will feel like flying, weightless, straight up
Until the end of the river
It will feel like flying, weightless, straight up
Until the end of the river
It will feel like flying, weightless, straight up

Have you ever seen the fog
And thought about its color
Doesn't it seem like a place to go and fly away

Here we go now to the river
Track Name: Emotionally
Silhouettes are watching me
Outside my house hiding in the trees
I don't wanna leave alone
Stay indoors with refrigerator drone

So now I see thee emotionally
It is what I want, It is what I need

You're parent's are in high school
In the middle of a swimming pool
Showing is a new trend
It doesn't matter if you never had a friend

So now I see thee emotionally
It is what I want, it is what I need
So now i see what is meant to be
What is inside you, it is inside me
Track Name: Fantasy/Reallity
Let the dream help your reallity
Push it to the top like a fantasy
Even if you can't do it everyday
Do it when you can, try to stay that way.
Track Name: Higher than Merry
Higher than merry and I'm falling
In an afghan of far wind I painted my arm again
My favorite dogs and dog days
You make me doggy-dog dang happy
In the morning of our lives I'm not afraid of trying
I'm not afraid of it
Not afraid of flying
I learned a lot from you,
I hope you feel the same way too
You learned a lot from me,
enough to make the same mistakes
Track Name: You Are Alone
You're not yourself
And don't forget
It will come back
When nothin's left

You are alone, you are alone
There's nothing wrong with that
You are alone

And you could look to see
But don't forget me
Down in a well
Speak honestly

You are alone, You are alone...
Track Name: Lindy
Lindy fell from a falling plane to the sea
When she sank the sea became a blanket
From the golden sun
Empty prayers I used to love
Voici, you touched my eyes
And now that I am heart-hardened by love remaining
And what it could have been

I can hide in your cold-hearted sea
But I can't run, can't run away
From your twinkling lodestar eyes
We have prayed for many a days
That we would find you where there's something that is left of you
That we could share and call it memory

Your lake will long become a meadow
Your plane will turn into debris
Your eyes will one day become sea glass
But your heart will always be with me.
Track Name: Kite
Kite in the sky, watch it fly
I sat there and sang out loud with the sun beaming down
I'm a moth attracted to light
That twinkles in your eye

I sincerely love tree line, the birds, and the B-line
and the wind blowing me around
Take a long walk and let it all out
Wear sunblock and swim in the Sound
I will follow the summer's sunlight like
A moth attracted to lamplight

Kite in the sky, watch it fly
I sat there and sang out loud with the sun beaming down
I will follow the summer's sunlight like
A moth attracted to lamplight
