theUtmost Oooo... new TPF album... and a quandry... Do I wait until I can hear the full thing and make an informed decision (it might be like GUYD which I still can't get into...) but then it might be more like any other of the excellent albums from Sam, Luke & the lads!
aaaand, oooooh, pink vinyl with limited turquoise 7" release. My chronic FOMO wins. Clickety click lol

Joey Abrams I am just over the gosh darn moon that I'm gonna get to hear new TPF songs!!! How Fandango, Buffalo, and GUYD didn't make you intergalactically famous, I'll never know. Here's to Friend Ship getting you booked in the hottest Canis Major clubs! Bonus: no COVID in Canis Major... kinda makes it like New Zealand!

Hounds Of Hell With Nadia Reid Music Scott // TPF Words Scott God bless the moment When the morning hits your eyes We’ll be together When the boiling oceans rise You won’t be alone When the sunlight turns to fire You won’t be alone when the falling skies are burning out our eyes God damn, the falling man The way it went, he’ll never land The hardest thing to understand Is what we’ve seen reflected You won’t be alone When the sunlight turns to fire You won’t be alone when the falling skies are burning out our eyes I’ll see you in the second circle In the body of the deepest well You were following the broken hearted… Now you’re running from the hounds of hell I can’t tell I can’t tell anymore Where we are I can’t see you at all

Tranquility With Hollie Fullbrook Jeff Henderson on Clarinet Music Wedde // TPF Words Buda I remember a life Left far behind the borderline A different time When the children were free They carried no screens When the water was clean And we ruled the machines My mind was a pool of tranquility before the age of anxiety got its grip on me Won’t you take me back

Landline Music Scott // TPF Words Scott When the city falls I will take your calls I can feel your voice Buzzing through the walls I’ll give you the number to dial And I’ll be here a while I will answer when you call me On the landline Call me on the landline In the blue light You dial “1-800 R U ALRIGHT?” We could float away Off to All Day Bay But when I’m in the blue I fear you can’t get through We need a connection to make it And I’ll never break it, I will answer when you call me On the landline You call me On the Landline In the blue light You dial “1-800 R U ALRIGHT?” (ring ring ring ring) Is this the real world? What it’s like to be a human being I want to hear something new Ringing in my ears Coming down the line You live in the clouds I’m still on the ground So call me on the landline, you call me on the landline In the blue light You dial “1-800 R U ALRIGHT?” (ring ring ring ring) Is this the real world? (is this real?) What it’s like to be a human being I want to hear something new Ringing in my ears Coming down the line Landline Why don't you call me on the Landline? Yeah on the Landline You call me on the Landline, landline
