sethery27 I love the sound and the energy that O'Brother puts into their music. They do a great job at making their music fill the space that it is played in - whether that is headphones, a car or a concert. Plus, the guys are genuinely kind and thoughtful. Favorite track: Soma.

Dan Curhan Haunting and gorgeous, full of emotion and restraint, this is O'Brother at their most refined, and most vulnerable. The energy of Endless Light is largely absent in favor of mellow, moody, intimate atmospheres. One of 2020's standout performances, for sure. Favorite track: Slipping.

you and i, we’re not that much better
Soma 03:30
i was hoping you’d open the door eyes wide open, laid out on the floor delicate lines erased you’re still right everything i created was only half made a carefully regulated personal crusade i always took you for granted i always wanted change now all i want is your love i was dreaming, we were here before daylight creeping through our bedroom door finding meaning in what i adore shallow breathing underneath the floor
Halogen Eye 03:30
weathered and worn i feel my energy slither down the back of my spine a three headed swine tangled in the evergreen we wither and slowly entwine i open my halogen eye everything that’s worth anything has got you by the neck anything that’s worth everything grips you by the neck tethered and torn you give me synergy the visceral, the elegant kind in purpose divine taken by the urgency we shiver and quickly entwine will you remind me why you’re everything
Slipping 04:20
you’re a place i cannot leave a space i cannot see a pitfall underneath i’m slipping you’re a poison in my teeth a tongue i cannot speak a pitfall underneath i’m slipping devil in your bed i’m pulling punches instead of getting even/ of just leaving you’re loss i cannot grieve a truth i disbelieve a pitfall underneath and I’m slipping it’s a tangled web we weave drunk on pleasantries a pitfall underneath and i’m slipping
Locus 04:56
i woke up in the in between and my head expands muttering words of prophecy from a fever dream you shared with me i am right here, where i’ve always been further up and further in you always run like a criminal when you need me you were tongue tied and elegant When you need me love is careless, love is blind love is envious. I’m envious always thought it was hard to find but i’m oblivious. oblivious
Only Other 03:38
i’ve got nothing left all this is fragmentary seasons we forget love isn’t arbitrary i want your respect if only temporary standing at the edge i’m gonna take you nowhere i will make it right i’m the only mother fucker in the room who seems to think i might but we look at one another for an easy way out tonight i guess i confess to being solitary i want nothing less I’m gonna take you nowhere I wanna make it all right i wanna make it right i’ll make it right If you let me let me
you’re an evening breeze ripping through my leaves like a killing spree, devouring my sense of time and its alright you’re a perfect line in a book unbound you’re signs of life in barren ground you’re a neon sign in a coal mine place your head against me now your tired lips, your open mouth drink my madness if you want to drown swallowed by fury and sound take my name it’s prearranged i’ll ruin you, when i ruin me take my name i’m borrowing from future you, for present me take my name stay the same because of you in spite of me take my name love was made for future you and future me
Black Tide 04:08
i was swallowed in a black tide living in a one way line hadn’t even tried you were right in the quiet of the storm (i couldn’t wait) in the violence that defines us i was caught in a black tide taken on a one way ride yours were the hands that guide, me to realign swallowed by a landslide there’s nowhere to hide i hadn’t even tried caught in a landslide a daydream paradise when these worlds collide we are purified taken by a riptide, a wave of cyanide you were right in the quiet of the storm (i couldn’t wait) in the violence that defines us we’re reborn in the violence we’re reborn (in the quiet)
lately I guess i’m not my best can’t help feeling there’s something less do you remember what we lost? you take me in your evening power in my lonely hour when the fog rolls in erasing what was only ours after the beauty sours when the walls close in you’ll take me into your final hours after the wilting flowers when your thoughts close in will you remember what we lost? i will…
i over reacted, it’s a spill on the carpet i missed your intention by a terrible margin in time, we’ll find,The fire i wanted to break you down i couldn’t lie, the error was mine i’m feeling farther apart i’ll be outside of your window tracing shapes along your spine rest assured that i'm imperfectly resistant of your wiles every person should be purposefully reverent of life i am not entirely certain i can be held in denial
Leave Me Out 04:27
breathe out, try harder now to breathe out its pulling harder at your seams now hearing everything you leave out i’m trying to see how i can make you believe i’ll be the comfort you need without screaming wring me out darling wring me out if you need i’m happy to be your of service but leave me out if you see me obviously worse off dream of another time when it was enough made a mess i couldn’t clean up feel you stirring in the sheets love if i could take your cup, if it comes undone i’m afraid that i’m all used up leave me out i just don’t know what to do
you and i, we’re not that much better
