Conan Neutron Endlessly and effortlessly creative. Eclectic AF bit with a singular purpose. Weird hooks, legit psych, & a wiry and dogged sense of humor applied in a completely deadly serious manner. These fellas are dedicated music fans and you can tell with how they approach it. Reckless abandon gives way to strange ennui and back again.

Truly unique and one of the more interesting records of this year Well worth your time.

RIYL: non awful Flaming Lips, Men's Recovery Project, Neil Young. Favorite track: Daggers.

Programmed to hate yourself So who the fuck can you trust Humanity's a mirror All you'll ever know's disgust All you'll ever know's mistrust All you'll ever know His mind imploding We can't get out His eyes stopped closing Try and fucking get him now Inconvenient phobias Keep you in for days In desperate need of exposure To ultraviolet rays His mind imploding We can't get out His eyes stopped closing Try and fucking get him now They don't wanna go to sleep It just seemed so much like dying Never wanna close their eyes And taste of goodbye They don't have to think to breathe But they do it just in case Now I don't have to look to see Decay His mind imploding We can't get out His eyes stopped closing Try and fucking get him now

Woodgrain 02:51
Chop the beast down Yes leave naught but a stump Count all the rings for the years I fucked up If I'm half of the man you had hoped I'd become Half it again for the fungus and rum Where I hide Pretend I was alive In the wisdom The comfort As fleeting as trust Peace for frustration Trade love for disgust I can't kill all that's chained up inside of my gut It's kept in a trance if I'm fucked up enough And I try But my will does subside I'm not living for you Passed out on my kitchen floor Trying to drown what makes me wanna die And don't leave me alone Stay by my side Want to wake up To a face I'll recognize And I'll recognize you Bet I'd recognize you Sense in my forehead and love in my chest Levels affected by what I ingest Though I fly by the wings on my family crest I'll die with the sins I refuse to confess Won't confide In a man from the sky I'm not living for you Passed out on my kitchen floor Trying to drown what makes me wanna die And don't leave me alone Stay by my side Want to wake up To a face I'll recognize And I'll recognize you Bet I'd recognize you

Daggers 03:42
No pantomime We're past any amends Firing daggers through my lenses Past your best defense Surprised to find us here again Half ashamed by my reaction Steely aim My sole attraction Find your feet Employ your eyelids Face to face I'll leave you blinded I blur I clench My knuckles D r a g Bitter passion resurrected from the past And your revisionist stories What a miserable ploy Pupils shrinking thinking Seek and destroy Find your feet Employ your eyelids Face to face I'll leave you blinded Deep breathing off my tension Bend my stiffened neck Lend my dominance To keep my rage in check Piston pounding in my chest Steam expanding in my head I twist a smirk and daydream you bleed Consume and cheat Retreat Your coward's Creed Where I can only hope to be The swinging dagger in your shower scene

100K Volts 03:08
This is exactly as it seems I am a vessel of regret And I only want from you exactly what you promised me I only ask that I forget 100K volts Just a therapy to pacify and clean My troubled mind Feed me the lightning And I might survive the night Empty of fear and hope Provoked To the end of my rope This world as my kaleidoscope 100K volts A Trojan horse of misery Watch me burn them in their sleep My mind's an acid washed watercolor seascape The closest thing to free 100K volts Just a therapy to pacify and clean My troubled mind Feed me the lightning And I might survive the night Empty of fear and hope Provoked To the end of my rope This world as my kaleidoscope 100K volts Static pushing up my pores Cold electric stutters up my spine Your current creeps my circuit Crashed in cranium Make it numb Just make it numb Just make it numb

Fire Water 01:37
I give 'em hell So they know I got a soul worth selling Disappear When I come back There ain't a soul worth telling I'm no Jesus Christ I knock 'em back Catch me walking on the Fire water Turn my cheek But if you swing You might as well've just started a war I'm no Jesus Christ I'm so nice But don't test me twice I'm no Jesus Christ

Projectors 03:10
He's not under my bed It doesn't make it better To project him on the world instead Sometimes it's just way easier Pretending you all live in my head Deceitful Greedy and evil All psychos United by time and my eyes So you can never do to me What I've already done to you No you can never do to me What I've already done Yeah right Crisp and defined All these sharp focused specters 6 billion plus cuts Done by mindfucked directors These scenes flicker on Flooding All 10 dimensions Film rolling on and on And watch me project it

Cookie Jar 04:51
You know that feeling in your belly when you run Let's you know you're alive Ain't it better when you don't know what you're running from All alone Know for god-damned sure you won't be making it home Have I lost all my adrenaline And I miss feeling guilty And I miss all the shame And I miss times when I could appease my demons And I miss when that hurt me I'm so far past authority And I'm over what was I can't help sometimes but wish For fear to grab me by the fire And burn me up in my guts And now you're heaving up ether From the pit of your soul Half will scream for shelter Other half screams Let it go Breathing in reefer Trying to empty your skull Close your eyes It sounds like Being dragged through the snow And now you're heaving up ether From the pit of your soul Half will scream for safety Other half screams Let it go Breathing in reefer Trying to empty your skull Close your eyes It sounds like Being dragged through the snow

Pour sand on the coals dear And snuff out the smoke Top off your bottles and gather your rope (Abandon all hope) Rest your eyes in this box Built of tinder and gold Turn all your locks To the bitter and bold Turn your cheek now sweet child From this means to an end There's no rise from defeat Let's not even pretend

Instructions 09:39
You'll sow no peace with seeds of greed Distort importance with these Misinformed priorities And you can have it all when I sleep Or Fucking add it to the salvage heap Got more in common with the shaman than the chief Cuz I would rather free your mind than fucking keep you in line And it's as easy as Treat 'em like you wanna be Feed 'em positivity And beat 'em if they wanna beef We take from all And leave for none Create new enemies for lack of competition And fuck attrition Blast the planet We've surpassed these simple savages And while they ravage us Shut up and pay your taxes No longer lean mean survival machine Cuz a collection of things Is now our measure of prosperity Unprepared to see the errors In the messages taught to us By the box that bought the office And the officers We run solvent in disarray Disappear in the gray Eyes wide through the night Til the days are a haze Hear we go Thumbs among the dominoes Masquerade teeth displayed I am unafraid It's all just a game No choice but to play
