The Heart Chord - EP2 (Triphop) 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: Coma
I don't mind if the world goes silently to sleep tonight
and I don't care 'cause I will be perfectly at peace tonight
So come on and take my picture before I sink too deep
as I lay here in this coma, waiting for my prince to take me out but

he will never wake me

I don't mind this sweet trip sitting in my veins tonight
and I don't care, I will flow into the river with the rain tonight
So remove me from this picture, before I sink too deep
as I lay here in this coma waiting for my prince to take me out but

he will never wake me

I'm not afraid, I'm not afraid of burning out.
Take me out but he will never wake me.
Track Name: M. Verre
I can't leave here, but I can't stay
I can't face one more day
I can't take who I am
Can't help thinking you'd understand

I feel shattered, I feel torn.
I rue the day I was born
and the fool that I am,
I keep thinking you'll understand

Oh poor, poor, poor me, and you'll be sorry you'll see
It's so hard to believe I can't make you love me
Track Name: Shame
A stranger to his work
Assistant to the strange
Selling your advice to people you can't save

His mind is open
His crime is chosen

Behold your mercy seat
Now you'll think before you weep
Do you care?
Running in reverse, you'll pray your soul to keep

His mind is open
His crime is chosen

How can you have no shame?
You have no shame, man it makes me wonder
How can you have no shame?
You have no shame, man it makes me wonder
Track Name: The Nothing Game
We could never need any more and I
I could never see this before, I know

When you walk into that room, you'll look around and see,
the faces are cold
and you know it's coming soon, there is no place to be, I know
You never know, what will you say?

We lie, and never show who we are
and we have been this way for far too long

When you walk into that room, you'll look around and see,
the faces are cold
and you know it's coming soon, there is no place to be, I know
You never know, what will you say?

I can't recall where this all started and I'll never be the same
I can't believe the things I've seen, the things I'll never see again
