I told you bout the good and the evil I told you bout the lakes of fire I told you bout the good and the evil Hey you want it, hey don't you want it? Which one's sitting over your shoulder Which one could you do without Which one when the sky's splitting open Hey you want it, hey don't you want it? Hey you want it, hey don't you want it?! Hey you want it, hey cause the price you pay On judgement day Ha ha I told you bout the good and the evil I told you bout the lakes of fire I told you bout the good and the evil Which one could you do without Which one's using you as a vessel Which one is behind your eyes Which one's gonna come to collect it Hey you want it, hey don't you want it? Hey you want it, hey don't you want it?! Hey you want it, hey cause on judgement day Whose price you pay Lakes of fire (when there's nobody around you) Lakes of fire (tell me which will surround you) Lakes of fire (cause it's already in me) Hey you want it, hey don't you want it Lakes of fire (when you go to pay the piper) Lakes of fire (when the lights are going out here) Lakes of fire (cause you never believed me) Hey you want it, hey don't you want it

Timepieces 04:30
Timepieces Always break down on you, down on you Never trust those timepieces And the world's changing Don't you stay in that town, they're still hanging round Like hung pictures Again you go into the rabbit hole Look out before you fall What will you do with all those Pull down all the dusty frames Calling you back again Laying around beside those Timepieces Calling you back the same, but it's all changed And you can't retrieve it That world's ending Leaving you in yesterday, get yourself away From those timepieces Again you go into the rabbit hole Look out before you fall What will you do with all those Pull down all the dusty frames Calling you back again What will you do with all these Go make, go make it on your own So many fallen souls Laying around behind you Pull down all the dusty frames Calling you back again What will you do with all these

It's coming Been sitting in wait for so long Here me running There's a light at the end, thought you never would come but These days when the weather's still gray You roll over and pray, everything is okay It stung, it had only begun And I'd give my good lung just to sit in the sun You can always tell when the winter's gone Everybody comes out at night You can always tell when the long winter's gone Everybody comes out, everybody comes out These days in the digital age Everybody's 2D, and it's like a TV but I see the sky start to open up wide And I'd give my good eye just to go outside You can always tell when the winter's gone Everybody comes out at night You can always tell when the long winter's gone Everybody comes out, everybody comes out And it's always the darkest just before you get to dawn And it's always the darkest just before the morning comes Winter's gone

Everyone here waits around for the weekend Everybody here's coming down for the weekend Working those gears 'til the day's never-ending Only three more 'til we get to the weekend "One of these days they'll get what they got comin' One of these days we're really gonna show 'em" Ain't it just great how it all never changes? Nothing I can do, sit and pray for the weekend It's never if not today Everything's not okay And tomorrow awaits, but we'll always have today Finally here never thought I would see it Everyone's near, rally up & let's beat it Something ain't right with the shit I was given Matthew's out back and it looks like he's tripping (Hold on, hold on, 'cause you're never gonna be alone) Something ain't right in the disco casino Internet spies in my mind on a reload World's gonna end better get to the weekend Sweet sentiment - "kill yourself for the weekend" It's never if not today Everything's not okay And tomorrow awaits, but we'll always have today Everyone here waits around for the weekend Everyone here waits around for the weekend It's never if not today Everything's not okay And tomorrow awaits, but we'll always have today (Tomorrow waits, but we'll always have today) And tomorrow awaits, but we'll always have today

Standing by as the gates are closing Watching you from above the town I've been hear a thousand years now, have I ever learned? There's still joy on the left-hand shoulder On the right is the weight of man It's the storms that hit too close to home that do us in You've got time and an open playbook You've got time and it's on your side Comfort comes in changing ways to play it in your mind Wish that I had the things to tell you Wish I could make it all alright Sometimes everything is just a mystery to me, yeah When you get tired of the blood and shit that's raining down, and the sunken ships are coming back to haunt us, will we finally let them be? Chasing down what is out of sight Wish I could make it all alright Sometimes nearly everything's a mystery to me, yeah Standing by as the gates are closing Looking out from above the town I've been here a lifetime, I forgot how to come down

BELLE GHOUL, the group now formed by Christopher Tait (ELECTRIC SIX), Jesse Paris Smith (the daughter of Patti Smith and MC5’s guitarist Fred “Sonic” Smith), Matt Van, Zach Shipps and Mike Alonso, find themselves in a creative, prolific stage, which is confirmed by this new 10” mini-LP that opens up new doors within the group’s sound. It’s a slippery release, jumping between styles in a way that is only possible for two music-lovers this talented, playing with synthesizers and folk echoes, and getting deeper into the instrumental development. At the same time, it gets stronger, more forceful, especially in the immediate hits, even momentarily dipping into the mix of rock and electronic that characterized the sound of Tait’s other band.

The result is “Rabbit's Moon & Doomsday”. The album shifts between groove and danceable rock with bursts of pop, and that “Lake Of Fires” is proof. It gives off airs of the seventies amidst boosts from the hammond, while moving our feet with grace and style; the song is highly influenced by the “Twin Peaks” soundtrack. “Timepieces” holds on to a solid handful of Beatle-esque classicism with touches of psychedelic-pop and Californian choruses, and a solo that seems like it was created by Dean Wareham to decorate the resurrection of our beloved LUNA. “Momentum” closes side A; it’s an instrumental that moves from sober piano touches with echoes of glam and the recorder, to the DNTEL’s digital playfulness and LALI PUNA’s clicks. “Winter’s Gone” opens side B with evocative electronic pop that draws delicious scenery dressed up with accordions (!!!), while touching, heavy-hearted melodies sweep through to narrate, precisely, an endless winter of almost 5 months. “Around For The Weekend” gets back on the path to solid hits with a totally addictive keyboard riff, sunshine-pop influenced melodies, and rhythms that move to the beat of northern soul. “Mystery To Me” closes this limited edition with mysterious halos and wailing choruses, rising more than a few feet up off the ground.

This is definitely new proof of what a group, who is more difficult to classify, to define, and to place with every step, is capable of. Their music holds so many surprises, which we get a small taste of with every new release they offer us. May they continue with the same rhythm - three singles and a mini-LP in just over a year!
