  • Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    Anhedonia on black double vinyl comes with lyric sheet insert.

    Anhedonia is an album that leads you down labyrinthine paths of harmony and discord, amplification and acoustics. Recorded with a live feel in mind, Anhedonia is also the band’s most honest release, the closest they’ve come to reproducing a live sound on record.

    Anhedonia was produced at Skyhammer Studio by Chris Fielding (www.skyhammerstudio.com), and mastered by James Plotkin (Khanate / Jodis).

Redeem code

Track Name: Labyrinths
I heard the engine
They left while we both slept
I felt the leaving
I smelled the burning wreck

There's a hope in wreckage
There's a code in the message

No grace passes through here

Graceless, graceless hope
Hallow, hollow
Bright like bone

(Taz Corona-Brown)
Track Name: Sky Burial
The sun came low
And were there sounds?
I don't remember
Anyway

The birds came low
Turned bones to mirrors
On the snow
They cage my soul
Below

There's no one else
I'm the only one

There's no one else
The job is mine
There's no one else
So near the sky as I

And every time is
As hard as the first
I have to drink just to do it
I tell myself I won't remember
But the meat
And there's no one else
So the job is mine

There's no one else
I'm the only one

There's no one else
The job is mine
There's no one else
So near to the sky am I

(Taz Corona-Brown)
Track Name: Song of Stones
You owe me one more smile
Before you go
You turned your back on me
Into the snow
I held you close you were but
Skin and bone
You said the sun and stars would
Guide you home

Oh, holy sound
There's a hole in the ground
Where we're all bound
Where we're all wound (down)

You walked into the place of the wreckage
With the name in your mouth

As the toxin takes a hold
And your body is burning cold
And the shadows surround you
Hound you
As I wait for you

My candles burn so low
Heart heavy like a stone
Did they rip you in two
As they'll rip me (too)

You walked into the place of the wicked
With a stain in your mouth

(Hel Sterne)
Track Name: Atacama Sunburn
Down to the waters
To the sea
There, where the rocks
They wait for me
Wait there

Out near the bay
Where the weeds grow thick
I am tired but I swim on

Swim on

Taste of waters
Taste of waters and of her
Taste of waters
And of her waters
And of her

Swim on

(Taz Corona-Brown)
Track Name: Aeris
I hang above your head
You hang around my neck
You're strung across my back
I'm slung across your lap

Been a long time since the sun was in the sky
Been a long time since I looked into your eyes
Do you see her in the mirror when you're alone
Do you see her under water and sea foam

We're not lost
Yet
We got lost
Dead

Oh, why did you get so low?
Why did you let go?

When all the vultures bow
To taste us fallen down
I stare into the white
And through the other side

Pray to the One
Who can
Pray to the Sun
Who can
Bring back everyone
Who can
Bring back everyone

White light

(Hel Sterne)
Track Name: Emmenagogue
She rises in the West
In the hollow of your chest
And the trees in the fields
Will clap their hands
And the grass on the hills
Will turn to sand

She rises in the West
In the sorrow of her rest
She died in the water
Of the wishing well
She lies in the water
But she wishes well

I learned my lesson

I never saw her coming
In the light
In the stark daylight
I never saw her running
Towards me with a knife

(Hel Sterne)
Track Name: Knucklesucker
Home
It's reddish inside
I lit a fire
Someday soon
I'll light a fire

Hypnotic little one
Through woods and wolves you've run
Your vacuum-packed desire
You push through you
Like wire

They haunt your strange tear-gas dreams
Like teenage magazines

And the empty feeling
Comes on hard and low
And the empty feeling
Of the afterglow

I don't feel hollow
I don't feel sorrow
I don't feel anything really

(Taz Corona-Brown)
