At the beginning of April, we traveled to Montreal & spent 4 days with a lot of coffee and beer recording our forthcoming debut album with engineer Darwin Baker. In that time, Phil Creamer (Here On Out) paid a visit to the apartment we were recording in, and filmed us playing a few songs. Here's the audio from that session to give you a little taste of Bull Kelp while you wait for the proper album to get mixed and mastered and released and all that business. Enjoy!

Track Name: Dandelion (Here On Out Session)
(t. ashton)

baby did you lock the gate? did you turn the lights out?
babe I had a bad dream
baby am I running late? or am I just losing count?
is this all a bad dream?

dandelion seeds on the wind, baby did you let them in

baby let's not do this now, hey I'm not saying never,
I don't think I'm ready
yes I know the circle's round, but I can take forever
getting myself ready

there's nothing wrong with feeling sad sometimes
an egg that's not been fertilized

scream into the night, the animal inside is bristling and staring down your logical side

baby if you marry me, we'll live in the holler
of the wild oak tree
you'll have to take care of me, we will live in squalor
but I will love you only, I will love you only.
Track Name: Skewered (Here On Out Session)
(z. guigueno)

I've been gone too long
you moved on along
i thought you would wait for me
what a stupid fantasy

if these are your new friends
pledge allegiance
wear your jersey proudly
don't expect my hospitality

choose which side you're on
fight long & hard for the cause
your life force can only stretch so far
you can only be where you are

if I'd looked a move ahead
I'd have moved my bishop
now you've got me skewered
you bastard.
