about

Recorded in a shed out the back of Nicole's house in Brunswick, these intense, dreamy ballads reflect a lot of upheaval in our lives at the time, relationships dissolved, loved ones passed on, trucking down the cosmic highway.

about

The Dust Revival Band Melbourne, Australia

"The Dust Revival Band incorporate psychedelia, rich vocal harmonies and guitar interplay in a folk rock vein that owes a debt to a wide range of 1960s West Coast pop and garage rock, from the Buffalo Springfield to Crazy Horse, from Creedence Clearwater Revival to The Mamas and The Papas... an intoxicating mixture of country twang, melancholy folk and urban scrawl..” Terrascope.co.uk ... more

Track Name: Indrawn Breath (demo version)
I breathe your indrawn breath
I feel your tears across my face
I close my eyes and see your Darkness
I open them and see your Stars

You and I have been here many times before
Of that I'm certain, of that I'm sure
This breath that rises like mist in the dawn
Drew me to you the day you were born

You abandoned me
But I followed you through your wanderings
I hid behind your every thought
Then I returned to you, back to the Source

You imagined me
And here I am, filled with ecstasy
Your call became my echo
Your life became my dream
Track Name: Careless Hand
A careless hand
Like yours is now
Will caress your face one day
Rocky earth protecting you
Will crumble all away

A distant gaze
Like yours is now
Will wash you like the sun
Dormant seeds reachin' up
Craving love.

A last goodbye
Like yours is now
Will wake you from your dream
Where the shadows weep
And the roots of your soul
Will plunge down deep
And there you'll find
In the tears you reap
The place where I have been
Track Name: Cotton Seeds (demo version)
I lept right across what remained of my years
And saw we'd reached redemption in that last year

Listen closely to what I say
This is your voice anyway
These are your thoughts, these cotton seeds
Dance round you every day

I didn't have to go like my Daddy did
He took himself away from all this
No, I had less but I had more
I knew what the pain was for

All the walls had fallen down
God's eyes gazed down from every tree
And suddenly we all could See
I felt the love in each Embrace

A great murmuring filled my ears
Of wind in meadows and ocean breeze
The purring sands and the fire on leaves
And the rivers thanked us endlessly

Listen closely to what I say
This is your voice anyway
These are your thoughts, these cotton seeds
Dance round you every day
Track Name: Underneath, All the While
Is there no end to these tears?
Oh Lord, feels like I'll cry for years
Your arms no longer round me
But your beauty still surrounds me

I didn't know
How to love you
The way you wanted me to
I never knew, I never knew
My love wasn't getting through
Passion soared so high
I thought it could never die
But underneath all the while
You were hiding like a frightened child
You were hiding like a frightened child

Is there no end to these tears?
Oh Lord, feels like I'll cry for years
Your arms no longer round me
But your beauty still surrounds me

Blinded by my love
Blinded by my pride
I didn't see you hurting inside
But now you've gone so far away
All I see is your sweet face
All I see still is your sweet face

Is there no end to these tears?
Oh Lord, feels like I'll cry for years
Your arms no longer round me
But your beauty still surrounds me

Underneath, all the while
Underneath
Track Name: 111.0
Life is just a dial on the radio
Sliding through a million frequencies
Picked me up on 111.0
I'm tuned in now but soon I'll cease to be
I'm tuned in now but soon I'll cease to be

There's more time when we're not here than when we're here
Unborn or dead more than alive
A breeze blows through the night
And blows out the light
Eternity ahead and far behind

Out on the highway cruising late at night
Dashboard and speed for company
Thinking about the millions of tequilas
Thinking about nothingness and me
Thinking about nothingness and me

There's more time when we're not here than when we're here
Unborn or dead more than alive
A breeze blows through the night
And blows out the light
Eternity ahead and far behind

Am I once forgotten, now remembered?
Am I something found then cast away?
All I know is the moment I am driving through
A frequency that soon will fade away
A frequency that soon will fade away
