erik I bought the casette. I don't have any meaningful insight on this, but it's a really solid, well produced piece of work. Favorite track: Queen Mary.

The Revel Switch New York, New York

The Revel Switch is an indie alt rock hillbilly shoegaze band from New York. Nice melodies meet occasional cacophonous ends with an almost imperceptible haze of twang hanging about like smoke ... in an old bar somewhere out in the middle of no place. Rich Meyer on bass and vocals, John Epperly on drums, Justin Greville on drums and piano and Alex Miller on vocals and Gtr and keys ... more

Track Name: Days Don't Swing
Feels weird the wind's the way
There's nothing here but a hole
The full moon sways
Then it burns away
On a whim the wind's the way
I know where it all went wrong
Here lives the washed away
The lone the ones we had are gone
How we get along
The way that we come
The way no bills to pay no love
Even though they say leave it alone
I'm a try to reach you
If it's the last thing I done
These days don't swing the days don't swing
But that don't mean anything
Don't know where I lost the trail
Love fell like bright shiny pieces
Of dust in the sun
I'm a try to reach you
And I got a gun
And I'm a try to teach you
The mean end of the sun
They can't teach the wicked ways
And love you all the time
But that don't mean that it swings
Or that it's got feeling anymore
There's no feeling anymore
Track Name: Brake of Cane
Cleanse my feet with warm dry sand
Give me something to believe in
Any way that I can
Help in bringing peace to the land
And help me give it up for the man o man
Run through wildernesses
In the sun and the rain
Seen stalks a slapping out back
In lonely brakes of cane
Beat down every path
Down every lane
Saw it on tv but it
Was not the same
No one can hear you now
The screaming from the angry
Cloud's/crowd's too loud
Track Name: Wolves
She don't wanna know
She can't even say
That her wings aren't arms
That need clear plans to play
And the wolves in the back
Clear blows the cold
And the wolves aren't crying
And we know it's the way
And the weeds
Are rolling
Over the sand
We don't know the way
We don't own the day
We don't know the way
We don't know the way
She went and lost the day
She went off like a bomb
In the woods in the town down the
Hall in the back rooms playin
When we don't get along
We need a song to sing
She don't buy it at all
In the farm ways
The streets say
Free them from thinking
We don't know the way
We don't own the day....
Track Name: Killers of Cowboys
Several times they pitch me
In the Mississippi
And I keep coming up
Nashville women try to kiss me
Then try to kick me
But I keep playing it tough
Hey Ma bought a
Plymouth with wings
It cost a lot
But money don't mean a thing
Killers of cowboys ...
Everyttime they run me down
I keep hiding out underground
Til I can't see anyone
Spend my lazy days in
Daisy chains wet with remembered rain
Til I forget the sun
Hey Ma bought a
Plymouth with wings
It cost a lot but money
Don't mean a thing
Killers of cowboys ....
