about

The song "Ghost Dance" is in reference to the ceremonial dance performed by the Lakota/Sioux tribes prior to the massacre at Wounded Knee in 1890. This song is a dedication to their perseverance despite the continued injustices they have endured over generations (including the recent Dakota Access Pipe Line that risks poisoning their water supply).
We will be donating a percent of all purchases from our bandcamp to standingrock.org

about

8-bit crEEps Chicago, Illinois

Syd Barrett singing happy birthday to David Byrne.
Psych-Wave.

Inspired by a lone, nameless man. His dilated pupils are equal parts apathy and anxiety.
The square-wave soundtrack was a worm in his brain.

The dimly lit Chicago arcades he would frequent left strange impressions on young minds. This is where you'll find those impressions.

This music scene is giving us the crEEps.

Track Name: ghost dance
the west has come with a thousand guns
use my bones to beat your drum
the west has come with a thousand guns
i'll use their bones to bang my drum

a ghost dance
is it a bad dream?
take my temperature, take my temperature, take my temperature no

i see smoke above the trees
set my wife's spirit free, baby no
bleed me dry at wounded knee
set my son's spirit free, baby no

a ghost dance
is it a bad dream?
take my temperature, take my temperature, take my temperature no

the frontier ain't got no pity, "red man" you sign this treaty in blood
big sky take my heart (x2)

Track Name: mexican beer/winter suns
shadows, stay close to me
pianos, played hauntingly

i've got mexican beer
they were smoking a joint
a japanese basket
full of canadian coins

come on, where did you go?
shake off, oh no no, you were too slow

i've got mexican beer
they were smoking a joint
a japanese basket
full of canadian coins

millionaires, caught unaware
throw them on the fire
and your eyes, are winter suns
the light gives me no warmth

millionaires, caught unaware
throw them on the fire
and your eyes, are winter suns
the light gives me no warmth
