about

Hay un cowboy de medianoche recorriendo las canciones en lo último de Crooked Crew. Y es esa figura una resistencia a los estorbos cotidianos. Lleva el cowboy un abrigo que toca en la puerta con el anhelo de la derrota inevitable, la causa ya perdida o los acontecimientos cruciales que se dan durante la espera. Uno concluiría que lo interesante de escuchar un timbre es el misterio del rostro que se avecina o la cocorota de quien se marcha sin respuesta. Si estará a la altura de nuestra exigente expectativa. The Crooked Crew, en este catálogo, anuncia, presenta y remata que ese rostro ya lo hemos visto.

Frente a la orfandad del exterior incómodo, en estas canciones están el alimento y la hoguera. Ocurre todo arrullado el sonido multi celeste de todos los tiempos –el siglo XX, o sea- y empleando la letanía de la mejor manera, la que deja al oyente abstraído, acaso perdiendo un hilillo de baba, moviendo la cabeza o encontrándose de pronto en la sima que separa dos notas.

Solemne cuando acústico, cálido cuando se mece en los pianos, capturando aquí el dolor bello que sintetizó Alex Chilton, allá la lágrima coronaria de Will Oldham y por algún otro lado los espacios crepusculares que produjo Brian Eno en los ochenta, el Capitan tiene el tiento de encontrar en cada rato la tecla adecuada: una patente.

Floreado este panorama de salmos o del verso suelto y negro que es la sobresaliente "Corners", se cruzan en demo-lition
severas citas taciturnas con esa idea permanente de las puertas. Correderas, giratorias y de un salón deshabitado.
Al final el disco es un principio: la medicina del día.

Track Name: while waiting for you
While I was waiting for you I found
Someone so much better
I wasn't sober enough to see what was going on
I lost perspective on all the things
That made you so special
Are you afraid to grow old with me?
Or want a new way out?

Those were the times when I should have missed you
And the times when I should’ve cared
But time after time I failed
For everyone to see.

While I was moving southbound I met
Someone so much stronger
While I was making some plans
Life kicked me in the mouth
While I was fooling around
You found reasons to dismiss me
Didn’t deliver the goods
So instead I play dead once more

I readjust my eyes to the darkness
And found I was alone
I realised all the time I wasted
Wandering at home
If you decide to behead the messenger
That’s a burden of a task to keep
But time after time I failed
For everyone to see / for everyone but me
Track Name: crutches
Last time this year we were a mess
Barely in speaking terms but still
In love nonetheless
Planning our revenge.

What time was when you left our bed?
You tried hard not to wake me
Born to raise hell
Trained not to feel

With only one purpose in this life
Sleep was the answer to the question
I don’t want to know
Give me room to grow

Hand me my crutches.
For all the wrong reasons

Now you treat me like a bum
A deserter of all the good things
That is wrong with the world
A Saviour of all sorts

The day he stormed out of your life
All the bad air dissipated
Found a mean to an end
Call it perfect revenge

Hand me my crutches.
For all the wrong reasons
Track Name: after the block
Right after the block a flood of words
Were thrown up but nothing stuck up
Worth remembering, you were pretty obsessed
With finding the path that took you here.
Back to the south where you belong
Away from the crows, the lepers unbound
You asked for the nature of my complaint
When I gave you none
You sent me to –night- (hell).

Tonight we could reach for the stars
But tonight could tear us apart
I smile when I hear your cry
“Don’t leave me here…”
Does it get better than this?
Without risk, there will be no reward
Your moaning just makes me sad
Glad that you are here and… now


Right after the flood a block of words
Stuck at my mouth, shattered my spine,
My fragmented mind, your lack of regrets.
Won’t suffer fools gladly. Not even myself
The curtains, the ceilings, the sofa, the bed
Were covered by innards, the fruit and the waste
At the vanity fair all my couplets
The harder I tried the darker it gets

Tonight we could reach for the stars
But tonight could tear us apart
I smile when I hear your cry
“Don’t leave me here…”
Does it get better than this?
Without risk, there will be no reward
Your moaning just makes me sad
Glad that you are here and… now
Track Name: intimacy
You know you’re not going to be ready
Until you hear the last call
Intimacy is going to be waiting
Demanding her home keys back

The plane is set to be leaving
Some luggage left behind
Creating a circular orbit
Gravity won’t deny.

As lame as the days went by
Slowly they turn into years
Misunderstood genius like you
Could just not keep on pretending

What a welcomed surprised
A candidate for the prize
Refused to identify the root of all evil
Constant craving for love and sweet validation
Let’s not overstay our welcome
And just get back to work
Still running after perfection
As if the sun depended on us

Redundancy is such a harsh word
Intimacy down to the bones
Track Name: descendants
Goodbye innocence and say hi! to the days of our love crimes
I lost it today couldn’t find my way back from the void
Deep sleep at the wheel.
Cruising control as commander
You gave me some pills that I rather not take anymore

But I tried and I tried and I tried
And I just couldn’t wake up!
And I cried and I cried and I cried
And you just gave me more
And despise all the noise in the house
They spread the rumours
I connected the dots and the morning
But they made no sense

I was practising hard but was never enough for the master
I’ve seen beautiful thing slowly turn into dust
I won’t dare to ask you for the dammed descendants
How I ended up feeding my worst nightmare.

But I tried and I tried and I tried
And I just couldn’t wake up!
And I cried and I cried and I cried
And you just gave me more
And despise all the noise in the house
They spread the rumours
I connected the dots and the morning
But they made no sense
Track Name: let us go on
When your voice sounds like hell
Silence turn into gold.
How could I be wrong?

Used to be the king of lust
Now I’m gathering dust
How could I stay warm?

When I walk around the room
Foaming sweet at the mouth?
Why don’t you calm down?

Planning to move south
And then burn the house down
How could I be strong?

Come in or come out
But shut the door behind you

When I drown every night
And wake up full of rum
Lord, let us go on

Eye for an eye tooth for a tooth
Lord, let us go on

When you are gasping for air
And the windows are shut
Lord, let us go on

When I play to be God
You are as cheap as your shoes
Lord, let us go on
Track Name: coming home
Have you told your parents where you are?
Shouldn’t leave the house without a guard
You need to find the reason why you are mad
Isn’t always something I’ve done?


I throw a hand
You bite it back
Are you coming home?

Flashing needles through the camel’s eye
Every corner can hide a trap
Live your life and scare the ghosts
The little monster in every one of us

You threw a bone
I bite it back
You’ll be a guest
At my deathbed
I told you once
I’ve made my mind

I ain't coming home
Track Name: older
It doesnt matter any more
Track Name: dream crusher
Dream, like the ashes to the floor
Your alibi about to fall
Time to dip inside the hearts
Of the ones who care

Please, let them in

Sick, my softer tissue is bleeding
Skin and bones are peeling
Don’t let me die in this hospital
I need your sun

Let the light come in

Year after year all the tears
Have been avoiding me
Bring the end to an end let’s begin
Again

Crushed, like a shadow to a ghost
Like the beast around your home
This is how my mind works
When they spoil you day

All bets are in!
Track Name: as easy as it seems
As easy as it seems to
lie to yourself
Remain calm in the storm
run for your life
To cry without a book
Rolling drunk on the floor
To trade the ones you love for
A version of yourself

As hard as it might be to believe the hype
To keep your mouth shut
When the world expect a laugh.
Track Name: corners
I get lost at every corner
The farther I get the less I see
Rudderless in an ocean
Fishing for ghosts inside of me

Could I be saved?
Should I be saved by you?
I’d rather be dead
I’d rather be a dead than a fool

I once saw my stepfather
Putting a rifle in his mouth.
He made sure I was the one to find him.
Waited until my mum was gone

He couldn't stand me
I keep asking myself why
He couldn't stand me
Will never find he reason why

Is not the bullet what kills you
The emotional baggage normally does
Just the thought of been unfaithful
Shoot my empathy up

I always resented being a coward
Went missing for several days
I grew some special anger
feed it every single day


Why should I wait?
Why should I wait for you?
