Dogeared 05:36
Dogeared and worn out and beat down and hollow Sunburned and stove in he walks by and won’t cast a shadow She stumbles and staggers out into the daylight She’s crossing back over the bridges she burned in the last life Quarters and dimes at the gas station counter Buy one more corona to nurse through the night in the ditches And she bolts throught the briars and the brambles and the thickets and her hearts pounding wild it’s an animal got flushed by a brushfire Pear blossoms snow down and drift by the fences And bury the place where all of the pain and the hurt is A dude in a wheelchair floats a wheelie on the sidewalk As he waits for the bus with the patience of a saint he’s got forever As you slip off the cornice and you trip down to the ground you hold their faces in your mind calm and gentle like you held them all as newborns Her father he died before she can remember Of course she still misses the things that she wishes he’d told her Pear blossoms snow down and drift by the fences And bury the place where all of the pain and the hurt is

I am a cinematographer (4x) And I walked away from New York City And I walked away from everything that’s good And I walked away from everything I lean on Only to find it’s made of wood, made of wood And I was a big old bear once (4x) And I walked away from California And I walked away from everything that shone And I walked away from everything I live for Only to find that everything had grown, everything had grown Now I am a cinematographer (4x) If you were alone You could walk away from Louisville

Road to Ruin 05:00
I had my minute or two of grace before I lost it You got your bootstraps and got plenty of pills I had my minute or two of grace before I lost it You keep saying it’s all a matter of will I had my minute or two of grace before I lost it ya youThink you’re smarter than anyone I had my minute or two of grace before I lost it The oracle says it’s almost now still I had my minute or two of grace I used to think I knew what I was doing I was driving myself down the road to ruin What out there could make it hot in here Take the wheel just a minute I can't see to steer Barking mad and raised by wolves you think you’re so slick you’re just a bunch of shills If I went to Sweden If I went to hell And if made it back alive I'd have some stories to tell You could go to New Orleans You could go to France You could pass through Houston baby And maybe give me a chance I used to think I knew what I was doing I was driving myself down the road to ruin I had my minute or two of grace I used to think I knew what I was doing I was driving myself down the road to ruin

Fold Me Up 04:41
Here’s your long last road boy there’s no more work here for you now try to hold on to the ties the bind reel the line out look for signs alone by yourself alone running hot flying high being alone by yourself alone a silhouette against the sky johnny jumpup says no way no how killing rocks and breaking time they say but i’m not know who they is tasty goody’s next in line so fold me up let just a little out jump around and shout for joy they say but I’m not know who they is one day you know without at doubt

about

KING ROPES Bozeman, montana

When Dave Hollier spins records at a party, he plays stuff that’s all over the map. The Meters, The Knife, Boston, Bowie, Buck Owens. It could go very wrong. But it doesn’t. Finding the thread that leads from The Cars to The Beastie Boys to Van Halen to Prayers, he tells a long, beautiful, cross-cultural, multi-generational story. Hollier’s band King Ropes is doing much the same thing. ... more
