"Pins and Needles" - Mutemath (Cover with Loop Pedal) by Roly O

Lyrics:

Paper thin conviction,
Turning another page,
Plotting how to build myself to be
Everything that I am not at all.

Sometimes I get tired of pins and needles,
Facades are a fire on the skin.
And I’m growing fond of broken people,
As I see that I am one of them.

Oh, why must I work so hard,
Just so I can feel like the nobles ones?
Obligations to my heart are gone,
Superficial lines explain it all.

Sometimes I get tired of pins and needles,
Facades are a fire on the skin.
Oh, I’m growing fond of broken people,
As I see that I am one of them.

Sometimes I get tired of pins and needles,
Facades are a fire on the skin.
Oh, and I’m growing fond of broken people,
As I see that I am one of them.

"You’ll keep it on the inside
‘Cause that’s the safest place
‘Cause that’s the safest place to hide

All of your friends are gone
And you were barely holding on
We were wrong and they fooled us once again…We are the loneliest of men, we’re the loneliest”

Great song for an art filled day. Time for creativity. “Purchase your tickets; I’m kicking your crosses down”

New Album in Progress

So I finally began tracking the new material last week and I have an idea of the direction of where I want the music to go. For the next couple of months I’ll be arranging the songs and finding which sounds work best for which songs and I’ll work on all the lyrics when the music for the album is all done. I’ll be documenting the process and upload YouTube clips as it takes shape. Cheers.

Finally done with the studio. New music coming soon :)

Finally, all of my toys are in the same place for the first time. I’ve painted the new studio and my dad and I are going to build a few sound absorbers for the walls today.

Like a leaf dancing side to side as it slowly finds its way to the ground in slow motion, my permanent stay here in Chicago seems further and further away. All I can do is hope to spread my arms and catch a second wind. I wanna stay up as long as possible, but somethings are out of our control.

RE: Modern Music

You don’t need a new John Lennon.

You don’t need a new rock station.

You don’t need to change the flavor of the month.

You just need for someone to break the fucking rules and destroy everything you think you know.

Getting some songs ready for Uncommon Ground. This needs to happen already.

The hunt for playing cards.

This is exclusive to the people that live in Chicago. What goes around comes around. I mentioned before that we are all magicians. We each have the ability to make magic in our own ways. So………I will be leaving playing cards with phrases on the back of them throughout the city and I need you to keep an eye out for them. If you find one, take it home with you, scan it or take a photograph of it and send it back to me via Twitter, Tumblr or Facebook. The end result will be the cover of my next album (first one in Chicago since my move here). 

I figure this project will take some time, but since my music room is not ready yet, I’ve got all the time in the world. So keep your eye out.

I am leaving some today at the Belmont/Red Line area.

Working on some blueprints for soundproofing my new place.
