October Country thumbnail
October Country Folk rock cello with horns (clarinet) and harmonies. These guys are crazy talented. I bought their full discography, a first for me on Bandcamp. I'm leaving my review here to help boost their newest release, but my favorite MLC album is their brilliant studio Rock Symphony Billion, favorite song "Fly." Irresistibly fun in the way the first three Poi Dog Pondering albums were. I'm so pleased to have found these guys! Favorite track: Someday (Live at Lucky Run).

Track Name: The Impossibility of Us (Live at Lucky Run)
feelin' tired and overcome
dealin' hard and I'm finding gold
is the only dirty friend that I have
some nights

tipsy start in a gypsy soul
lost my heart in a rabbit's hole
and it's older now
than I'll ever be

and I am finding out
where this is going for me
and it's only down

I'm down on my knees

why don't you come and see
just why you came
to this time we share
and the lives you care for most?

why don't you come and breathe
this air surrounding me?
and tell me if this love I feel
is enough

for the impossibility of life at all
and of finding words
for what this moment is worth
Track Name: Muddy Blue (Live at Lucky Run)
everything's broken, nothing’s right
you don't get a wink of sleep at night
and you don't know what you're doing

what touches my hands turns to mud
what touches my lips tastes like blood
and everything is ruined.

I'm so neat and I'm so cute
and God gave me two feet to shoot
so I don't get where I'm going

and you’re so muddy blue,
so muddy blue,
muddy blue,
muddy blue…

I'm telling you to get away
you're free to leave and you're free to stay
now just where do you ink you're going

what scare you more? What you don't know,
or knowing you'll be where you go
forever and forever

and you’re so muddy blue,
so muddy blue,
muddy blue,
muddy blue…
Track Name: The Silence (Live at Lucky Run)
I am the silence that hangs on these walls
oh I am the silence that hangs on these walls
I hold your memories, I feel your touch
and I am the silence that hangs on these walls

I am the voices that never get heard
oh I am the voices that never get heard
I bring a message of courage and hope
and I am the voices that never get heard

and I...
was born beneath the winds that
gave shape unto the mountains
and I swam within the currents
that busted into fountains
I was never really certain
of my purpose in existence
but I found more than reason for being
the day I met you...
Track Name: Aliens (Live at Lucky Run)
they set out for a future that would serve the children well
through the waters put some distance between themselves and hell
they had money they were glad to trade for some documents and a name
for family they had photographs, gathered in a frame

they learned to speak the words of him they hoped to make a friend
but they never seemed to understand exactly what they meant
when they tried to make a joke, it somehow didn't seem so kind
and with the help of time became what they tried to leave behind

they were aliens, in a foreign land
searching for a better world, but crashing somewhere else
oh they were aliens, something less than man
a threat to people's happiness, and trouble for their minds

the money wasn't hard to make, but it was hard to keep
the hole they made a home in every day a bit more deep
when the children had adjusted, had a life to call their own
they put to use those documents, across the waters that led back home

but they were aliens, in a foreign land
searching for a world they knew, but finding something else
they were aliens, to their countryman
with different views on happiness that troubled the people's mind

they kept crossing waters to find a place where they belonged
and though they had each other, they couldn't help but feel alone
the search became a joke that somehow didn't seem so kind
but with the help of time they came to understand

that we're all aliens, in a foreign land
coming from a better world, and headed somewhere else
oh we are aliens, and somehow also man
here to bring some happiness, and trouble...

because we're aliens, in a foreign land
searching for a better world, but crashing somewhere else
oh we are aliens, and with our fellow man
we're looking for some happiness, and a little peace of mind
Track Name: Bird and Fish (Live at Lucky Run)
I'm a bird, I'm a bird, and I can't fly
and it's a fact
that keeps me up at night
and I walk, and I walk in the streets
when all is quiet
'cause everyone else is asleep

but who would have thought
that poor little me
would be talking to someone
as special as a fish

I'm a fish, I'm a fish, and I can't swim
and it's a fact
that keeps me up at night
and I roll, and I roll the streets
because the tide
just tosses me out from the sea

but who would have thought
that a bird an fish
would be walking and rolling
and talking in the streets

and who would have thought
that a love like this
could have happened between
a bird and a fish
Track Name: Numbers and Lines (Live at Lucky Run)
it's the kind of sound that sinks a hole in my head,
it comes around to take a word that you said
and explains the world for me
with numbers and lines that become a sea
of glitter and gold

I tried to lead a life of water and bread,
to leave a light on where the fathers have fed
but instead I have sown the seed,
that spread like a vine 'till it reached the sea,
as others foretold

and it feels right
to begin
for a while
without a single thing in mind that could make the wheels run
the ticking hands
of space and time...

it's Friday night and I'm alone in my bed,
the phony silence of the battery's dead
and the world has come for me
but nothing escapes from this ebbing sea
that has taken control

and it feels right
to begin
for a while
without a single thing in mind that could make the wheels run
the ticking hands
of space and time...

now we've opened up the doors
and now these lines have found the floor
and if you feel like you're someone else
then join the numbers that hear the sound
and realize that from the same life we all are born

and it feels right
to begin
for a while
without a single thing in mind that could make the wheels run
the ticking hands
of space and time...
Track Name: Hoy Dejaste de Morir (Live at Lucky Run)
hoy dejaste de morir
hoy tu ser te pide más
regresó el color a tus labios
y tu piel abandona el gris
que fingía la humildad

hoy dejaste de sufrir
hoy te late el corazón
hoy la vida toma un paso
más allá del liderazgo
del orgullo y del dolor

y hoy eres tú, la misma que arriesgó
y no se dejó vencer por el mundo y la ilusión
hoy se ve de nuevo un razgo, una y otra vez
de esa luz que se apagó

hoy comienzas a vivir
se oye solo tu canción
marcha el tiempo más despacio
y se abren los espacios
de la mente en tu honor

y hoy estás, aquí, la misma que amo
y no se pudo perder lo que el día le ofreció
hoy se ve de nuevo un razgo, una y otra vez
de esa luz que fuiste tú

y hoy creo en ti
hoy creo en el amor
hoy se ve de nuevo un razgo
una y otra vez
Track Name: I Am the Sky (Live at Lucky Run)
Sunday morning, strumming chords under the tree
where mother birds have built their nests
and men have lost their will to live
a boy is struggling to remember
that what he sees is make-believe, but there's a song
there is always a song that tells him

Oh my, oh my
I am spinning through the universe
I am at the speed of light
I'm flying so high, so high
I am the sky

Sunday evening, the rain is falling by the sea
he wonders how he's come to earn a role
inside the mystery
and why he's not somebody else
and what's behind the wind that blows this perfect storm
where there is always a song that tells him
Track Name: Love in Space (Live at Lucky Run)
you don’t know me, but I see you
claiming space underneath my skin,
while the wise and the strong refuse
my stone crumbles and rises with ease to the wind…

you don’t know me, but every day
you’re becoming a trusted friend,
while I sink in the weight of my ways
the stone rises and rides the waves to the sand…

we’re falling stars in stratospheres of worlds beyond our own
where dawn’s a light born to reveal the mysteries yet unknown
and seeing, you see me, seeing you…

you don’t know me, but nights are soon
for the rising of righteous love,
in the darkness and hope of a tomb
the stone lapses, the angels have come from above…

we’re falling stars in stratospheres of worlds beyond our own
where dawn’s a light born to reveal the mysteries yet unknown
and seeing, you see me, seeing you…

and all the while we’re making stories that someday
will fill the time between the courses of our first date,
and we’ll laugh because it’s over now, and say it all makes sense…

but is this different? I’m seeing you…
well, is this different? Are you seeing me?
Track Name: Someday (Live at Lucky Run)
someday, I'll be someone who helps to make it
okay, for all the people that have found their
own way, to show that hate isn't real

and it won't be a matter of luck
I hear the promise and I hear the call
I see the goal and I see the path to walk
and now the time has come to make that someday today

someday, I'll hold the scepter of the king and
hold sway, in all the rooms where only money
has a say, and I'll speak up for the real

and it won't be a matter of luck
I hear the promise and I hear the call
I see the goal and I see the path to walk
'cause now my time has come to make that someday...

today...

it won't be a matter of luck
I hear the promise and I hear the call
I see the goal and I see the path to walk
and now that time has come...

so make that someday today...

'cause you know the world becomes what the world becomes
and all we ever have is this moment
to give it a world in a day
to let the world becomes what the world becomes
and give it a world in a day
Track Name: I Think I Love You (Live at Lucky Run)
I'm sleeping and right in the middle of a good dream
Like all at once I wake up from something that keeps
Knocking at my brain
Before I go insane I hold my pillow to my head
And spring up in my bed screaming out the words I dread

I think I love you
(I think I love you)

This morning, I woke up with this feeling
I didn't know how to deal with and so I just decided to myself
I'd hide it to myself and never talk about it
And didn't I go and shout it when you walked into my room

I think I love you
(I think I love you)

I think I love you so what am I so afraid of?
I'm afraid that I'm not sure of a love there is no cure for
I think I love you isn't that what life is made of?
Though it worries me to say that I've never felt this way

I don't know what I'm up against
I don't know what it's all about
I got so much to think about, hey

I think I love you so what am I so afraid of?
I'm afraid that I'm not sure of a love there is no cure for
I think I love you isn't that what life is made of?
Though it worries me to say I've never felt this way

Believe me you really don't have to worry
I only want to make you happy
And if you say, Hey, go away, I will
But I think better still I better stay around and love you
Do you think I have a case? Let me ask you to your face
Do you think you love me? I think I love you

I think I love you
