Mine The Stars, Traul The Sea

from by Trap Set

  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    modeled on the 2" tape box format, it's square on the outside but round n' nice inside cos not only is it the perfect, ol'skool way of lovingly transporting your new, best favourite 1's and 0 bitz n trax straight to iTunes for sharing your innermost personal and at times often embarrassing secret music tastes with Apple (which Thingamejig will happily tolerate), but it makes one fine drink coaster with which you'll be able to show off your pre-holocaust, musical treasures of yesteryear to your grand-kids when they pop round for tea...ahhh, "they don't make music like that anymore..."
    oh yes,
    includes bonus tracks and other audio goodies!

human endeavour and not wanting to pull-down loved ones down into a downward spiral.


i’d given up all hope at all..
I was
just not sane
i'm not just say’n it to make you feel small
can’t bare to see you
fall down on your
knees cos something’s
wrong with me

they may
say oh that
time heals
all but i'm
just not sure i'm
just not sure
just not sure they’ve ever felt this sore
all know who they cos they're
far too short to fall so far...

mine the stars and
traul the seas...


from Thingamejig, released July 1, 2014
Recorded in the U.S in a rehearsal room in Washington DC. The long string sections pay homage to My Bloody Valentine, Slowdive, Ride, LUSH and my other fave shoegazer bands from the 90's, The drums were put on to Nagra reel to reel tape so the pitch and speed could be manipulated coz I 'm a tape-stretch junkie
