I made a very limited amount of these 45-style vinyl CD-Rs that contain the 2018 mix & mastered version of Blue Mirror (the demo version). Most copies have been distributed to friends, and only a handful remain. Handmade packaging, full color jacket and insert w/ lyrics.
This is the unofficial "finished" version of Blue Mirror. Changes to the mix and a new master is what resulted in the 2020 released final version. This is a unique collectors item and once they are gone, they are gone for good.
Includes unlimited streaming of Blue Mirror
via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.
laying awake and
i can take it
are we okay?
i do feel lost sometimes
you must understand
take what you can get
don't you have enough to pretend?
can we take this to the end
and then still survive?
i can't believe it
my heart is aching and i've lost
a little more than just a lot
embrace the pain for years you've kept
surrender all the rest
no one to befriend
tell me, on what will it depend
when time is not our friend
it is a tease
what can i do now?
i know for some it's just too late
for those who could not wait
this makes me dizzy
against the grain, there's nothing left
be one with those at rest
erase the pain from those who've left
relinquish your regrets
As someone who came of age at the turn of the millennium, hearing bands like Thrice and Rise Against scrape against the ceiling of indie success, I can't help but hear a similar crossover appeal in Gravity. Don't get it twisted: Black Spirit Crown has the hesher intensity of High On Fire and the murky melodicism of Monolord, but this seems like a band aspiring to more than Xeroxing the same old stoner-sludge riff-salad. Call 'em a gateway band if you must, but there's no denying the craft here. Bryan
