woe_bonnet If Fleet Foxes and Dr. Dog did an album from inside a scale-model kinetic energy space launch system, this is the direction I think they'd head in. Expect to get a LOT of mellow returns on repeat listens... Favorite track: Give Me Time.

Give me time, give me time for this life of mine, please I have cried truth and lies to get across this divide How is it so? years go fast and minutes go slow How can it be? no ones come to rescue me Give me signs, give me signs from the site out of mind years and days, birds of prey sit and watch it unwind How is it so? years go fast and minutes go slow How can it be? no ones come to rescue me How is it so? years go fast and minutes go slow How can it be? no ones come to set us free

I was bitten by a policeman he left teeth marks in the back of my hand I wanna scream, but I can’t say nothing no, I can’t say nothing, no, I tell no lies 2x I wanna leave, I’m not resisting I wanna hit him, I’m just existing Madness sets in fast, are you gonna last? Madness sets in fast, can you last til the break of dawn? Aye aye aye Die die die Lies lies lies Broken Now I was bitten by a policeman foaming at the mouth with the blood on his hands They try to say that I have no choice and I have no voice and I can’t do nothin’ I wanna leave, I’m not resisting I wanna hit him, I’m just existing Cold indifference, spark resistance, superstitions washing out I was bitten by a policeman he left teethmarks in the back of my hand I wanna scream, but I can’t say nothing no, I can’t say nothing, no, I tell no lies 2x

Zuma Loop 03:24
Have sight but cannot see winds rise so I can breathe harmonize eternally cast no shadows Bathe in moon and sun and sea mountain bloom in twilight gleam what a dream life can seem unwinding so slowly Still night is not empty tides rise so be at ease on and on we all will leave what a dream life can be
4.
Towers rise, towers fall find yourself before you damn it all I’ve been searching as the sun cuts the sky know you’re hurting, don’t know why In the midnight glistening I can still get down down down and the sorrow stays in the space above me, below me, in this hollow that remains Hear the bells ringing slow I lost count, how many left to go? In the light of another setting sun we can feel the end, but we don’t know when it comes In the midnight glistening I can still get down, down, down and the sorrow stays in the space above me, below me, in this hollow that remains

Drying out your eyes with a garden hose retreat into yourself where the darkness grows all of those things that you keep in your mind you better let em out, don’t ignore the signs all those things that make you want to die Screaming at the sky, “life is so unfair” knowing in your heart nobody really cares every little fear locked up deep inside ‘long with every little tear that you never cried all those times you told those little lies You were standing out there with a wounded knee dreaming of a time when you thought you were free all of those things that you keep in your brain you better let them out before they drive you insane all those things that make you feel afraid
6.
Down in the valley things have been so boring sing me your velvet song, send my mind soaring it must’ve tired you out to travel all those light years I feel so holy, now that you’re near In time, in time, in time I want to plant you in my mind I can watch your truth unfold I want to see how this thing grows in time, in time, in time, in time Rise in the morning and I’m still dreaming arrive the golden dawn and then it hits me but when the evening comes I’ll miss your light, dear it’s a shame, it’s a shame, it’s a shame that I’m still left here In time, in time, in time I want to plant you in my mind I can watch your truth unfold I want to see how this thing grows in time, in time, in time, in time ...

Breakfast in bed, coffee, sulfur, and wine I look out my window at the crack in the sky white linen and laundry everyday we’re inside that thing the floor will probably grow tonight, again In time, things small, always seem to double and grow what’s more, big things, they must always come to an end The men in the pantry whisper when they get high raising a glass to lucifer’s eye well don’t these things always, always seem to end with love in the gutter and the death of better men In time, things small, always seem to double and grow what’s more, this life, has never been just what it seems to be Descend in premonitions, echoes a dying fiction, ah ah suspend in superstitions, plasmic reverberations, I’m still dreaming transcend enter dimension, a subconscious transmission, I’m still dreaming as the days go

Let Go 04:21 video
I make sense to myself in a crowd I wish I could tell you the story the words just won’t come out Spend time in your mind hoping days pass slow spend time in your mind trying to let go These night skies in our eyes hide a deep sea inside drift into tomorrow leave your worries behind Spend time in your mind trying to let go spend time in your mind trying to grow Spend time in your mind sit back and let this feel grow

Broken Hills 02:46
I light with trembling fingers candles I came to burn my son why light your fires? a beacon for my wand’ring soul Goodbye to old step stones I’ve followed til now goodbye to my old home I cast myself out Like string my body is winding around the thoughts made half not whole I paint the lonely mothers myself I leave alone

White Foam 02:34
White foam, white foam O leave me alone white foam, white foam O paler than bone a shadow, a shadow left me in the meadow how could I ever have known? White foam, black sand don’t make me your man I fall, you rise with cold diamond eyes the sun used to shine up over the hill why did ya swallow that whiskey, those pills? The lidless can’t see the leafless can’t leave the sun obscures your eye so don’t look to me for the answers you seek they’re stuck between day and night

about

Evolfo’s homegrown musical universe is forever expanding.

If the Brooklyn-based pysch rockers felt pressured to repeat the successes of their 2017 album Last of the Acid Cowboys they certainly didn’t show it. One might think a band that racked up 6 million plus streams on their debut record would try to capitalize on this by doing more of the same. But when the 7 members of Evolfo piled into the tiny, sweltering, attic-turned-recording studio of band leader Matt Gibbs’ Ditmas Park home, they intended to spring confidently forward into fresh sounds and more vivid conceptual subject matter. They have flipped the world of the Acid Cowboy on its head, departing the earth bound adventures in melting landscapes, rat cities, and desert sojourns for metaphysical territory and the mountains of the mind. On their brand new album Site Out of Mind, Evolfo reaches far beyond the confines of genre to create a colorful echo drenched psych rock dream all their own.

Partially inspired by concepts pulled from science-fiction and one group psychedelic drug trip, Site Out of Mind is a thrilling spiral into the depths of the spiritual mind and the afterlife. During late-night overdub sessions, the band would tweak lyrics line by line until it resulted in poetic verses like those of “In Time” and “White Foam." Composed of one-take recordings and produced by Evolfo co-founder Rafferty Swink, the album features organ-heavy songs like “Orion’s Belt”, which makes you feel like you’ve walked into a mind-exploding jam session where everyone is so in tune that they don’t even need to make eye contact. Or heavy, rhythm-driven cuts like “Strange Lights”, which jolts with an energy akin to Can. Evolfo don’t just channel ‘60s psychedelia on Site Out of Mind, from saxophone electronics to droning violinists, they warp the genre with experimental flair. The resulting album is a collection of songs that are unexpected, absorbing, and blissfully tripped out, all topped off with a vivid album cover by visual artist Robert Beatty.
