Conan Neutron LUNG are back with a new album. You'll never believe that a band with just Cello, vocals and drums can sound so full. Propulsive, Heavy, tuneful and thoughtful. Incredible lyrics, powerful arrangements and songs that stick with you for long after you stop listening.

The only problem is they have a very unique sound, which isn't always rewarded. I need you to trust me when I say that this is WELL worth your time and one of the best records of 2018.

Bonus: a timely David Bowie cover. Favorite track: Butcher.

Keep burning the edges on both sides of the cup I'm trying to stay calm but all I feel is fucked it seems but what the hell does that mean And I smile just a little just a little too much it's true, I was a lot like you. Nobody told her nobody told her You gave her the ocean but she wanted a knife burn the overgrowth and laugh like they told you Nobody told her nobody told her You gave her your world but all she wants is your life burn the overgrowth and laugh like they told you. Keep burning the edges on both sides of the cup I'm trying to stay calm but all I feel is fucked it seems but what the hell does that mean When trying to stay sober was a little too rough and I know that I am crazy but it's never enough It's true, I was a lot like you. Hold me Don't worry baby It's already done now child burn the overgrowth I'm not your father You know he's already gone now child burn the overgrowth.

Brock 02:53
She didn't want to go out that night with you She didn't want to go out that night with anyone darlin' But can you hear her heart beat harder down by the dumpster? Well, your Honor I know you can! "God I don't know what I was thinking must be the drinking, cause your your Honor I'm a good man. Your Honor please I am doing the BEST I can."

Butcher 03:10
Mom killed the butcher's wife she never came around much after that I never knew much when I was younger. Dad always played it cool He always ran around there wearing tights I never knew much when I was younger. Back from the hospital I kept all of my clothes on in the bath and prayed for any sort of hunger. I used to drive to take the car out over the Goddamn road Mom killed the doctor's wife she never came around much after that I never cared much for the city. Back from the hospital I kept all of my clothes on in the bath and scrubbed so hard that I got dizzy. I couldn't get it right.

Spiders 03:36
She is a spider a cord around your neck you are salt water you're sleeping in wasp's nests and when you start to shake just try to hold on dear there are no saints no one will wait no one will push you through. Oh always remember that I will break but I won't break for you. Connecting mirrors blank notes in secret rooms She is hot wires Your Jesus to consume.

Gun 03:57
Mother always said to bring a gun girl if it makes you feel better go to your apartment quick and lock the door so tight if you can breathe, you're doing it wrong. Leave your skirt on Unbutton your blouse dear your mother told me. Mother always said to leave the light on if it makes you feel better mother always said to drink your wine first drink your wine first if you can breathe you're doing it wrong. Your mother told me wrong.

slightly modified from original: Johnny's an American he drinks at the wheel. No one needs anyone they don't even just pretend. Johnny's an American. I'm afraid of Americans I'm afraid of the world I'm afraid I can't help it I'm afraid I can't.. Donald's an American Donald looks up at the stars Donald combs his hair back, Donald likes pussy in cars. Donald's an American. I'm afraid of Americans I'm afraid of the world I'm afraid I can't help it I'm afraid I can't God is an American.

Horsebath 02:41
You think I'm crazy? I'll burn your house right down. I know you're crazy to ride the merry go round round with me Nothing you say ever rings true baby blue. You think I'm crazy? I'll wring your neck right round. Nothing you say ever rings true I smile to your face but I live to destroy you I've read your red lips but your eyes are offtrack You really are gone babe then why do you keep coming back?

I miss you like doves do when they're a long long way from home I shake you like ghosts do they want to break swallow you whole. I miss you like doves do when they're a long long way from home I shake you like ghosts do they want to take swallow you Oh oh oh I don't want to be here now you're in the river and you're barely breathing I'm right beside you and the water pulls us down I'm right beside you and I will not cannot will not save you. The water's rushing around. Down by the river I'm laughing there beside you you never did love me and now we're in quicksand! The waves have grown larger they pull you don't so softly You breathe in the water You take it down easy.

Fault 03:05
Well you made a good tragedy a fool to defend but like any happy malady I already cut you off far before you met your end And I see you in strange men who live in my sleep and I see you in children they burn me down to the ground for the lies I couldn't keep. I was always caught in the game if you were my love- yeah I'd still shoot you down just the same same on any given day. And I find you on the radio they know what we did your name blaring through the stereo I knew you were more than done before they got you kid. Yeah you made a good funeral I took you down blind but like any good funeral the party was more than done far before you lost your mind. I was always caught in the game if you were my love yeah I'd still shoot you down just the same on any given day. Loose lips loose their tongues from playing these games but it wasn't all my fault.

Dog 02:32
I don't mind I don't mind when I take a step forward I take three back In through the out door Darlin' who'd you take me for? I don't mind I don't mind when I take a deep breath I don't feel free Free from the inside crawled out to the other side. Baby I thought I did a real good job I thought that if I did what you asked me to I think I'd make a real good dog. Feels like I can't come down feels like I can't come around I can't seem to play this sport I stay under radar sit tight in locked cars get lost but don't go too far.

Transport your body parts to a subhuman nation It's a dream vacation my subhuman nation And it's okay to die when you live without living plug me into your eyes give me something worth giving And take a ride to my subhuman nation to my to my to my subhuman nation I didn't know what I knew before when I could give up I didn't know what I knew before when I could shut up Transport your body parts become part of the problem you are just a machine you are part of the problem And it's okay to die when you live without living plug me into your eyes give me something worth giving! And take a ride to my subhuman nation.

I can't close my eyes but I'm screaming at the top of my lungs time to heal take what's mine but I really should've hurt you stranger really should've hurt you. Take a breath take a break take a little sip of water kid I can't fix what is wrong with you I know you are what's wrong with you I know now. All the king's horses and all the king's men they are playing on playgrounds they got from their fathers Guess I should've known better All the king's horses and all the king's men they are pissing on playgrounds they got from their fathers Guess I should've known better.

I went down south to find a bad idea and a different place to start. A broke down blood hound found what I was selling but he didn't like all that I was made of and ooo she said "It's all in your head" I came down fast to keep up with the changes bought a brand new face to paint. It twists and curls and when no one is watching I am Saint Madalena Lost with the devil and ooo She said "It's all in your head" There's got to be a better way out Thought I'd find the answer there dropped down on my knees there is no easy way out but baby's getting angry and wanting something please just just a little bit more you know you're going no where there running for the door there is no easy way out. She said do you need to remember? Three stones three queens but she's not who she said she was not who she says she was. She said, it's all in your head.

Placeholder 03:42
Dreamer's sleeping in my bed but his heart is wed to the love's he's known before locked outside the door I should go home I would rather be alone I should go home Dreamer's lovely when around but in times I've found words we swore when we would sleep were not mine to keep I should go home I would rather be alone And I know that I remind you of the love you left behind the road you chose And I know that I remind you of the love you left behind you. Dreamer's heart's a little mean bursting at the seams but in hellish afterglow you sure put on a show I should go home I would rather be alone
