    Time Is Gold is preceded by three 7” releases and continues the band’s practice of weaving chaotic rock arrangements around each song’s folk core.

    This first full-length album includes a few songs from the vinyl singles as well as new material with varying subject matter. “Truman” traces the history of the modern presidency while “St. Francis of Illinois” pays tribute to Vachel Lindsay, considered by many to
    be the father of modern performance poetry.

lyrics

Thyalcine - from the poem by Stefene Russell

suitcase jaw, knife stripes, they eat the bones

no bloody feathers blowing against the salty grass
and the chimera shadow, the flip book
with jowly wolf head and hindquarters of a tiger
and a middle part that we don't know how to name

suitcase jaw, knife stripes, they eat the bones
the farmer's children slam the closet door
pull the hems of coats and dresses over their eyes
at the thought, at the thought of croupy barking
pull the hems of coats over their eyes

suitcase jaw, knife stripes, they eat the bones
but the gait, three animals put together
the book says awkward, though tireless
like the one who can't keep up, far down the path
three rhythms that trip off a little migraine of the heart

suitcase jaw, knife stripes, they eat the bones
