about

"chamber music from a country that I didn't know existed..."

Bookended by instrumentals, Summer Swoon captures the Treemen as a duo, with their melodica and guitar meandering through new melodies and reimagined older ones. Can these songs help keep summer alive as the light fades?

Track Name: Takin' Time
If you wanna tell
stories 'bout your mother
I'll sit and listen to them, now.

If rememberin'
makes you happy,
go on and be happy bout it, yeah.

Cause you know takin' time
is not wastin' time
go on, make time.

You said in passin',
that that song's in fashion
but I don't have the ears for that, no.

Maybe one day
we'll hear our favorites
Playin' back on tapes that we made, yeah

Cause you know takin' time
is not wastin' your time.
Go on, make time.

Take your time
Waste your time
Make your time

And if you wanna tell
stories 'bout your mother
I'll sit and listen to them.
Track Name: Breezy
Sometimes when I'm out campin',
think this is the way to live.

Because I can feel at ease,
especially when I feel the breeze.

The leaves may rustle around,
and there's no train leavin' for the town.

When the sun comes pourin' down,
wish you would come around.

Cus there might be a surprise in store
when you can't even hear the roar.

The birds may fly right by,
and your favorite crops will never die.
Track Name: Yellow and Blue
Maybe I'll park my car and sail my carpet into work.
Maybe I'll stay home and just eat dirt.

And when you find place where you like what you do,
that's where you can move and breathe.

Maybe I'll plant some ashes and grow some shade.
Maybe I'll hang myself out on the line to dry.
I guess I'll stay home and just eat dirt.

And when you find place where you like what you do,
that's where you can move and breathe.

Move and breathe.

Eat the dirt where you come from.
Eat the dirt where you're goin'.
