Experimental Love Letters smells like flannel and winter soup and sharpie ink on sketchbook paper and pasta.

Salman Ahad Khan Found out about Jeff Tweedy and his band, firstly, through "Summer Noon" appearing on Boyhood, and then, listening to NPR's All Songs Considered. Only later did I find out that Jeff Tweedy was the frontman for Wilco, and now I'm falling for both bands and the music they've produced! Favorite track: Summer Noon.

Nostro What was I thinking back when this was first released roughly 6 months ago. Not using the normal band's name, Jeff's teenage son on drums; I figured it was more of a demo or incidental album. Well how wrong was I! This double album has no filler. Stripped back and subtle, it's generally a feast of melancholic goodness in typical Tweedy style. Favorite track: Down From Above.

Jeremy / HI54LOFI What a pleasant surprise to see this album on Bandcamp! Probably THE album of 2014 that I hadn't got around to listening to yet but have wanted to the most. Favorite track: High As Hello.

So long I will wait for Howl at the moon So low all the way home Sit at the spoon I should take you too Oh I’m as high as I’m as high as Hello on the waveform The wicked will die So alone I know I’m shade-grown Now why would I? I’ll take you too I’m as high as I’m as high as Oh I’ll take you too I’m as high as I’m as high as Hello Solo all the waveforms The wicked will die I’m alone all overtone The rivers awake I should take you too I’m as high as I’m as high as Hello Hello I’ll take you too Oh I’m as high as I’m as high as I should take you too Oh I’m as high as I’m as high as

World Away 03:31
I only want to feel this morning Catch the avenue I intend to steal this moment As we’re moving through Make my rendezvous As if it’s all I do I’m about to feel it lift sorrow floats away Over miles of old world Darling Honey I can’t complain Only a world away Only a world away I’m about to freeze the sun So let me fall away How it comes to be so really Nothings left to say Only a world away Only a world away Out of bounds of maps crawl Over the mounds of bones Is how I came to call you lonesome Over the telephone Over the telephone Only a world away I only want to feel this morning Catch the avenue I intend to steal this moment As we’re moving through Make my rendezvous As if it’s all I do I’m about to feel it lift sorrow floats away Over miles of old world Darling Honey I can’t complain Love me a world away Only a world away I’m about to freeze the sun So let me please explain How it comes to be so really Nothings left to say Only a world away Only a world away Out of bounds of maps crawl Over the mounds of bones Is how I come to call you lonesome Over the telephone Over the microphone It’s only a world away
4.
Why don’t we pick one script and read it Where the milk has dried on the throne Open wide Sing gracefully beside Rolling rivers of diamond light Dash and heave Each ache to the sky Why don’t we choose one to believe in Where shadows die Also alone Coincide Colliding points of view Perfect mountains of diamond light Dash and heave Each ache to the sky Are you scared Are you frightened Terrified of being alone Are you scared Are you frightened Terrified of being alone
5.
Honey I’m worried the fire is cold our tired souls have lost their way. Stay home and find the song fading away alone and strange, out of range I’ve heard you say dreams don’t matter That’s why we hold on as the days pass and wait for love Arm and arm waltz through the distant days the scattered parades as the sweet slips away Oh I guess you’d say we don’t matter and I bet that could be true. But I still wanna look in your eyes and say I’ll wait for you Oh I guess you’d say we don’t matter and I bet that could be true. But I still wanna look in your eyes today and wait for love. Let’s wait for love.

Low Key 03:15
I want to let it be known Ever since I was young I’ve always been a refugee Of the very high strung I’ve always been low key Let’s let the record show No I won’t jump for joy I don’t If I get excited Nobody knows But I’m going love you the same I’ll always be your fool And when it looks like I don’t care I’m just playing it cool No I won’t jump for joy I don’t If I get excited No one will know I’ve always been low key You know me I’ve always been low key You know me No I won’t jump for joy I don’t If I get excited Nobody knows I’m gonna love you the same I’ll always be your fool And when it looks like I don’t care I’m just playing it cool No I won’t jump for joy I don’t When I get excited Nobody knows

Pigeons 03:08
Now that you’re older, now that you’ve grown Now that you’re getting to know the unknown Now that your going not knowing where to go, as though Your eyes are closed Well it’s not how they tell it, it’s not how they say Your heart’s in your mind and your mind’s in the way It’s not how they tell it, it’s never how they say Let’s sing our songs for the pigeons As common as religion High on, high on Mt. Zion We’re all dandelions All dandelions Let’s sing our songs for the pigeons As common as religion High on, high on Mt. Zion We’re all dandelions

Slow Love 05:32
Slow love is the only love Slow love is the only love Slow love is the only love Slow love is the only love Slow love is the only love Slow love is the only love Slow love is the only love Slow love is the only love Slow love is the only love And so it was on one cold night In the middle of a lonely life And so it was you found my door And though it wasn’t open Oh, I had never seen it before So it was we fell in love What would you call when it rises up Or what to call it but falling in love I never needed to know what it was You never needed to know what it was We never needed to know Oh So it was that it was there A part of us as real as the air I never needed to know what it was So it was that it was there A part of us as real as the air I never needed to know what it was No love is the only love
9.
Sitting in a combed out room Watching the world to end I won’t say golden Until you let me back in Nobody says goodbye But everybody goes home We end the day sober To a depth we don’t own I stand where I grew Oh, I hated that too When hell’s about to blow in I saddle up new And it won’t be long To find a broken back bone Or another ocean Are there any unknown So I dance my shoe Beneath the black balloon Flip it at you for your trouble So long, so soon I’m going to Nobody dies anymore but don’t you think it’s never over Nobody dies anymore No badge knock on a dark front door Some things still change But Nobody dies Nobody dies Nobody dies Don’t I look over my sister Sister don’t you know me no more She calls me once every summer Before the leaves turn gold When she was the daughter Of a world without end They told her I was stolen She couldn’t comprehend Poured out in the street By the blood in the grass Poured out at the feet By the broken glass Nobody dies anymore No badge knock on a dark front door Some things still change But Nobody dies Nobody dies Nobody dies Love every song that I know You ask me well how so Strange I can’t defend I love how every song ends

I'll Sing It 04:01
Mister here’s a trick for you I’ll sing it if you’d like Pretend we’re getting closer We’re never getting closer Mister here’s a trick for you I’ll sing it if you’d like We’re never getting closer We’re never getting closer I’ll sing it to you I’ll sing it to you I’ll sing it to you And let me tell you what I’ll do I can sing it if you’d like Forever getting closer We’re never getting closer I’ll sing it to you I’ll sing it to you Mister here’s a trick for you I can sing it if you’d like Remember getting closer Remember getting closer I’ll sing it to you I’ll sing it to you I’ll sing it to you I’ll sing it to you I’ll sing it to you I’ll sing it to you I’ll sing it to you I’ll sing it to you

Flowering 02:54
Hold me stranger Don’t deceive Angel master Can’t retrieve Northern knots Hung high in the trees Spilling oceans Existing to believe I told you danger Carbon crown March through the salt slush Howling at the ground Whistle my answer Dance a blank face Torment my sugar And leap at any trace of Flowering Flowering Hold me stranger Don’t deceive Angel master Can’t retrieve Northern knots Hung high in the trees Spilling oceans Existing to believe I’m Flowering I’m Flowering Flowering Flowering

Desert Bell 03:17
Oh, I am sorry you won’t recognize me Born and bred to be led and be dead by degrees I’m taking a moment to express my regret Before I forget how it goes As fast as our blood can crackle with blame The arrows of eyes Defined our embrace too soon And piercing the place where even the moon Would never dream to shine The deluge day-dreaming turned to pain Blades of blood Rained beneath Silk teeth I barked like a cricket flaked like a bone Tricked and switched off in a heap And buried myself so deep and so true No one ever saw through Thoroughly cruel and alone Am I so sorry you don’t recognize me I am always the one You lost to all tomorrows Oh, look past your anger and please render me down In a hole in the ground Mixed with the earth Remember these words And let me no longer be worth your sorrow
13.
Summer Noon 03:32
Summer noon I can always stay To radiate what the cello can’t play She spoke to me and provoked my band And I broke in two in the heat of her hand Like a lioness or a coyote At a pink beating heart in the balcony I followed the finger to the creature’s gate In the hubbub where the pitiful congregate I thought there was a note that I couldn’t hear So I floated to the whisper up against my ear Afterwards I found my face in the trash Really at the core of it it wasn’t so bad Never leave your mothers womb Unless you want to see how hard a broken heart can swoon
14.
Honey Combed 02:41
I can feel the mystery But I can’t play it Grey as the children are grey My thoughts are grim, polluted as I am Walking out one summer noon So soon How will the weather bring Sing like the children have sung High as the stars are hung I vanish before I go I have written with a rope Wrapped around my throat Loomed like an island Dope hooked and cycloned Honey-combed my heart in love And from above Every cemetery Against the bloom Rattle the pigs, visit the silence Waking up an open wound I can feel the mystery But I can’t play it Grey as the children are grey My thoughts are dim, polluted as I am Walking out one summer noon
15.
New Moon 03:39
Well, I’ve always been certain nearly all of my life One day I’d be your burden and you would be my wife Let me hang like a new moon and let me be your twin Let me hang like a new moon Don’t treat me like a stranger again You keep me as your thief, please let me be a little more When you fall asleep let me be what you’re dreaming for Let me hang like a new moon Don’t treat me like a stranger any more Well, I’ve always been certain nearly all of my life One day I’d be your burden and you would be my wife Let me hang like a new moon high in the wind Let me hang like a new moon Don’t treat me like a stranger again You keep me as a thief, please let me be a little more When you fall asleep let me be what you’re dreaming for I’ve always been certain nearly all of my life
16.
Down from above I know It’s only love Until it goes When the last book is written The last song is sung When the last beginner has begun Down from above Comes the day A light is made to go away Where can I go Where can I flee Now that you know Will you take me? Down from above I know It’s only love Until it goes The world is filled with sadness Your darkness falls on me Where will you go? Where will you be? Down from above Too wonderful for me Down from above Too wonderful for me
17.
I want to watch you growing old and dumb I want to see what you and I become City arrow a mountain flame I want to be born just the same Where all my love has gone Where all my love has gone I had a dream we were cast away They came to save us but you wanted to stay They sailed away, I woke up I couldn’t hold you long enough Where all my love has gone Where all my love has gone Where all my love has gone Where all my love is gone Where all my love has gone Where all my love has gone Where all my love has gone You're where all my love is gone I want to watch you growing old and dumb I want to see what you and I become
18.
Behold the drift of a distant sun Cold as my own heart Blind at the edge of no return Every time I dare depart I believe the myth may illuminate an anchor in the dry weeds At the end of July in a fake fur coat Hoping that your heart still needs me I concede there’s beauty in bubblegum I'M rolling up my sleeves To advertise the new freedom I accept I can’t receive Behold the gift of the distant sun The canyons full of loose bones The nettles and the brambles and the jack bitch boss Thundering down from his throne
19.
Hazel 02:36
Hazel, Hazel, Hazel eyes Nobody's ever seen you cry Hazel, Hazel, Hazel tears Nobody loves you, nobody cares No one could protect you from the blood in your own veins No one could predict who would be taking you away You vanished in the trees in the woods where we would play Last seen on Sycamore, I’ve often heard them say Hazel, Hazel, Hazel green No one can remember how long it’s been Hazel, Hazel, Hazel brown No one can remember when you were around They cought you in the soil safe beneath the swarm Sleeping the orchard unaccounted for They caught you in the thicket, a prisoner no more Hooded like a hawk pitiless and poor Hazel, Hazel, Hazel tears Nobody loves you, nobody cares
20.
I remember the room With the TV on And you sitting asleep before you were gone We watched Thousands Cheer and Lily Mars Strike Up the Band and Babes in Arms Brush light on the walls Crash against the glass And I’d watch your ash Fall into your lap I loved to watch the ghosts Of cigarette smoke Turning lithe and blue And I loved the time we spent alone That you never knew Now I have a room with a TV on I try to stay awake before I’m gone Sometimes I don’t but I can feel you there When I’m losing track and I don’t react My mothers ghost Of cigarette smoke curling calm and blue And I love us being alone in the TV glow When I think you don’t know but you do
