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.

Track Name: Please Don't Let Me Be So Understood
I don’t wanna give in
All is falling
I don’t want to cold out
Trolling
Trolling
Unrolling

I don’t wanna give you satisfaction
I don’t wanna call in code
I’m all in
You’re boring
Aww I’m so, You’re so fucking boring

I don’t want to kill
All those people
But I don’t wanna grow up
Grow love

I’m boring
You’re boring

I don’t wanna be so understood

Boring
Boring
Boring
Track Name: 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
Track Name: 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

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
Track Name: Diamond Light Pt. 1
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
Track Name: Wait For Love
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.
Track Name: Low Key
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
Track Name: Pigeons
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
Track Name: Slow 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
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
Track Name: Nobody Dies Anymore
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
Track Name: I'll Sing It
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
Track Name: 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 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
Track Name: Desert Bell
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
Track Name: Summer Noon
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
Track Name: Honey Combed
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
Track Name: New Moon
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
Track Name: Down From Above
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
Track Name: Where My Love
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
Track Name: Fake Fur Coat
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
Track Name: Hazel
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
Track Name: I'll Never Know
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
