The Base Chord - EP3 (Psychedelic Pop) from La Belle Epoque Triple EP
Watch the video for Coma! www.headshy.com/video

Now this is a concept LP. An album made up of three HeadShy EPs, The Head, Heart, and Base Chords, they combine across velvet stained lounges in a darkwave americana for the soul, while gothic jazz floats across waves of minimalistic trip-hopped grooves before falling into oceans of melancholic depth. Touches of Portishead sadness filter through 4AD-ish haunting neo-psychedelic pop, like what might happen if R.E.M. joined with The Devics to cover songs by Nick Cave and Nina Simone. Lisa Lipkin’s vocals feel timeless in their beauty, like you’re lying on a bed of sorrow with murder ballad pillows, waiting for love to give you that sly little wink before it vanishes into the moonlight." - THE BIG TAKEOVER (Spring issue #74 on stands now)

Track Name: The Light That Guides The Blind
You see in my mind you can't hold me down, and if it seems right,
we might leave this town
Climb high but don't look down
Please don't make one more sound

Some would say there's a light and it guides the blind

It's been a long time and you don't know me now, and in the meantime we might see you around
Climb high but don't look down
Please don't make one more sound

Some would say there's a light and it guides the blind

You see in my mind you can't hold me down, and in the meantime,
we might see you bound
Climb high but don't look down
Please don't make one more sound

Some would say there's a light and it guides the blind
Track Name: Seville
This holy lie, no sign of life, a million days to try
This open box, these dusty eyes, a million ways to cry
Listen, stop, you know it's your last chance
Your memories all mean nothing to you

And when you come back, you'll crawl
and you can't save us all

This leaning house, this single light tear it down, fade to white
This hollow place, lost in your mind, nothing to give, nothing to find
Listen, stop , you know it's your last chance
Your memories all mean nothing to you

and when you come back, you'll crawl and you can't save us all
Track Name: Hold What You Find
How - In the tunnel of the warm-light walk, comes a ghost-struck man
and ooh - I didn't have a cure in sight for this mortal plan

Just hold what you find - Let me see what you want me to see
Remember this life ‘till you come back to contact with me

How - The battle of the angels strikes in the dead of day
and ooh - Tears falling from the dusty sky - they come out and play

Just hold what you find - Let me see what you want me to see
Remember this life ‘till you come back to contact with me

I'm waiting for you
I'm waiting for you - I sense, I sense what you do
Becoming something new
Track Name: Blue Days
Why don't you leave me?
I'm only there inside your head
You never see me
Just like your walking with the dead

Let all the air out of the room so we can end our days of blue

Swallow our memory
so it won't ever go to waste
Riddled with envy
Don't let us all just fall from grace

Let all the air out of the room so we can end our days of blue

Chasing our shadow
so we won't ever be alone
Where did our lives go?
When will we find our happy home?

Let all the air out of the room so we can end our days of blue

Someday it will be our time to go sane
Follow fading faces
Nothing was ever mine
End the conversation
We go, we go, we go
Someday it will be our time
You fool yourself, you fool yourself
Track Name: Perfect
Crushed - She moves along again
Wearing my heart again and sharing her smile with anyone but me
I'm drowning in air today but I've one last thing to say
You are perfect in every way

And it's hard to see where I'm going
I break down in the dark, no more hope
And it seems there's no way of knowing
what I'll be in the end, in the end

I'm broken and I'm never sure of what I have or need anymore
I'm fallen, I'm fallen and I need something to believe in again

Crushed - I'll never feel the same
I'll never be home again - She's taken away everything I need
To feel something good again
To never have to pretend you were perfect in any way

And it's hard to see where I'm going
I break down in the dark, no more hope
And it seems there's no way of knowing
what I'll be in the end, in the end

I'm broken and I'm never sure of what I have or need anymore
I'm fallen, I'm fallen and I need something to believe in again
