lyrics

most of the time i'm dumb struck by the outside
and all its spoils to find
and most of the time I prefer the confines
of a safe place to hide

growing numbness, in the face of the truth
overwhelms me, to the point of feeling blue
so lets sew shut the blinds, cut all the wires and lines
and we will hide for a while

keeping an eye, on the planes up in the sky
for a smile that hides
cause once you are here, we could stave off the fear
we could summon a smile

growing fondness, for this tangible peace
pacifies us, for the moment at least
so lets sew shut the blinds, cut all the wires and lines
and we will hide for a while

AJ McKinley San Francisco, California

AJ McKinley is a fellow from San Francisco who plays lots of instruments and writes/records lots of songs.
Using artists like Brian Eno, Kurt Vile and Reggie Watts as jumping off points, the music is composed/performed/recorded using only a bass, vocals, a looper and a drum set. All "guitar-ish" or "synth-ish" type sounds/solos were created through effects and pitch shifting on the bass.
