about

Without exception, Aftermath is the most meticulously involved Shadowlands construction. From the outset, Matt & I wanted to heavily incorporate synthetic & mechanized elements to the production with intentions to parallel the emotional process of abdication with textures cold, clunky, & atonal. Harsh modulating timbres, distorted drums, dense guitar effects, & walls of feedback are all used to juxtapose a composition otherwise sullen & calmly paced.

lyrics

our old mattress lies in the backyard
behind the shed where I keep our things
old cardboard boxes filled
with photographs, letters, & memories

makes for good firewood, if you ask me
if we all did what we could
just might be understood
but I don’t think I ever should

now another season’s passing
& I feel like I’ve been pissing my whole life away
all my dreams & aspirations
fade & die out with the days

makes for good excuses
to drink the blues away
& if we all did what we should
we just might be happy
but I don’t think I ever could

in the aftermath of ancient love
& all its faded glory
cries the heart of every man
to tell his sad, sad story

makes for good confession
to finally face the truth
if we all did what we would
things would stay the same
so find someone else to blame
