Carson McCullers

from Bringing the backline by trust fund

  • 'Bringing the backline' 12" vinyl LP
    Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    this new trust fund album, on vinyl

    pre-orders help to cover the up-front cost of the release in a way that beneficially reduces risk for trust fund. however, obviously for the buyer there is an increased element of risk inherent in committing to the purchase of a somewhat unknown quantity. in an attempt to mitigate disappointment, pre-orders would be encouraged if you believe you would enjoy an album that offers the following:
    - 10 songs, in the keys of G, A(?), E, F/G, C, E again, G again, A#, E again, and D.
    - a full and uncompromising turn towards adult-oriented rock, including 78 seconds of audible clarinet
    - tempos ranging from 85 to 190 bpm, including three songs conducive to movement or dance
    - lyrics touching upon the now-classic TF themes of listlessness, disavowal, and the fetishisation of regret, with details specific enough to feel frank and confessional, yet non-specific enough to allow for the listener to substitute in their own life experiences
    - several 'fake-outs', 'ad libs', and an assortment of 'musical jokes'
    - an increase in song-length across the board
    - extensive use of the 'mothership' guitar pedal

    if you have any further concerns or questions with regards to the nature of the product please do not hesitate to contact our sales team at ellisjones@gmail.com

    Includes unlimited streaming of Bringing the backline via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

Oh, so you’re the river, are you?
You’re the river the city’s named for
It’s good to see you bubbling by
I’m in a lot of trouble and I need to talk to you
From one natural body to another
I wanna talk to you
Oh, she’s moving on and I still love her

Oh, so you’re the river, are you?
You’re the river I wanna talk to
It’s us two running alike
Two sunk ships in the night
I only know one constellation, and that’s Orion
If I said I didn’t need her I’d be lying

All her messages, I would read aloud
But the girls in the group chat, they alone can help her now
For her messages, I would wait forever
But the girls in the group chat alone know her plans for the summer

And sometimes I envisage her on the ridge reading Carson McCullers
But the girls in the group chat alone know her plans for the summer


from Bringing the backline, released July 2, 2018
