"Exodus Damage" John Vanderslice



John Vanderslice's "Exodus Damage" is now officially being offered by Barsuk as a free download! You have to hear this song. If "Trance Manual" wasn't convincing enough that you must seek out this album when it magically appears in your corner shops on August 23rd, then this must be what you are waiting for. Another example of the phenomenal aural canvas that Vanderslice creates with his collaborator, Scott Solter.

+ exodus damage

Lyrics
I’ll see you next fall
at another gun show
I’ll call the day before, like usual

but I wanted so much more
I got exodus damage bleed,
could not commit, some things I’ll never be

so now we’re talking about this
I’m starting to lose my confidence
no one ever says a word about
so much that happens in the world

dance dance revolution
all we’re gonna get
unless it falls apart
so I say: go go go
let it fall down
I’m ready for the end

so the second plane hit at 9:02
I saw it live on a hotel tv, talking on my cell with you
you said this would happen, and just like that, it did
wrong about the feeling, wrong about the sound
but right to say we would stand down

an hour went by without a fighter in the sky
you said there’s a reason why
so tell me now, I must confess
I’m not sick enough to guess

dance dance revolution
all we’re gonna get
unless it falls apart
so I say: go go go
let it fall down
I’m ready for the end

so you hope that one person
could solve everything
and for me, that’s you
sometimes that dream
is a sad delusion
but sometimes it’s true

so now we’re talking about this
I’m starting to lose my confidence
no one ever says a word about
so much that happens in the world

dance dance revolution
all we’re gonna get
unless it falls apart
so I say: go go go
let it fall down
I’m ready for the end

  1. Great song! I'm really looking forward to seeing that video. Thomas Horne just finished Michael Penn's brand new video for Walter Reed and it is brillant. Check it out!

  3. thanks mark! i just wanted to say, *sixeyes was instrumental in increasing my awareness of john's music. i think with blogs, there's this huge new world out here to connect artists with each other, something totally unprecedented.

    i could totally live out my days making music videos for bands i am introduced to, updated about, or reminded of through this world, let alone for the bands that seek me out through the work i do for the aforementioned bands...

  4. Man oh man I love his new shit. He hasn't done anything this good since MK Ultra. If you are at all interested in hearing more about his studio, check out the interview he did for our podcast at notesunderground.com He was our best guest yet, and his story is very intersting.

    Thanks For Reading,

    Mitch
