Lament 09:05
Rise. Rise. By rope, through the fire Vision fades, the long descent Hollow on the inside, the rotten fruit Fall away Good bye. Good bye. You cry out for me You try to conjure me I hear you Tried and judged, a guilty plea Your cup half full, you buried me Forever in a dark wood, branches bleed Hear me Rise. Rise Your lament fuels the fire Sought escape, deceptions end Ice cold isolation, so far down Deceived Good bye. Good bye. You cry out for me You try to conjure me I hear you

Noetica II 05:25
You woke the moon You kissed her as she flew Out of the room She had her eyes on you You smell the night You felt her fingers as she passed This double bind These bodies growing grass You lost a day No pieces you could reach You wanted in No words, no voice, no speech Going out past the lights in the city Go on, go out past the lights in the field Go on, rolling hills and the railcars are rattling You’re Gone, you’ve gone out away from this body You’re gone, not in the earth but not gone Not how you were but you’re gone Out past the words and you’re gone

Noetica III 03:57
Can’t stop the body’s beat machinery Dirt, tick and thrum under my skin Unhook the black dogs from their leads and then Unstop your throat and sound again

Noetica IV 04:51
Waited on an ending Wandered out into a light Hot on the blacktop breathing Hung in the air, and watched you rise Now that you’re gone Now that you’ve gone out Call when you're there Or don’t say anything No, don't say anything When god closes her eyes When god closes her eyes Now hear the black dogs howl The everyday, bloodles jowls And gold street lights Spread like an ocean there Falling down, the unstrung hair Cut us lose before you leave They call to me, they're calling me No, there's no reason Oh, but you knew No, there's no reason Oh, but you knew Drove all the highway days Clean through your head That dull tent stake Will we remember? What do we know? We wrote down all your names We held them up for praise Can't get our arms around The shape, the heft, that holy sound I won't be anywhere I won't be anyone I won't be anywhere I won't be anyone
9.
Noetica V 05:49
Wake up, which world is dreaming? Don't make a sound, unless you know Rain through the night but there's birds in the morning This morning, it doesn't try, just rolling and rolling Your mind breaks open, wide open as the sky Crack the jar let you out now Let you go, watch you circle watch you rise

about

This is the soundtrack to the New Wild West. The focus of the Legends of the Desert is to provide a modern perspective to the antiquated 'Wild West' we have etched in our brains. These songs and tales are not told by the same ol' perspective of the white male Cowboy. These are narratives told by those who never got their stories heard. We will hear from musicians, artists, Natives, outlaws, desert rats, desert dwellers, cactuses and mesas, ravens and roadrunners, snakes and endless skies.

Desert Records is excited to announce a new compilation series called “Legends of the Desert”. The series kicks off on August 21st with the release featuring the split with Lord Buffalo (Austin, TX) and Palehorse/Palerider (Denver, CO).

Palehorse/Palerider could probably best categorized as 'Doomgaze'; combining the styles and sensibilities common to shoegaze, but with a somewhat darker overall sound and message.
The band is comprised of Brandon Richier (Guitar and Vocals), David Atkinson (Bass Guitar), Nathan Marcy (Drums).

Lord Buffalo is a mud-folk band from Austin, TX. They make music together under cover of darkness. Their songs are bricks with which to build a house slowly. They will not be rushed. They will not be quiet. They are the trees clapping, the rocks crying out, the whistle in your snore. The band is comprised of D.J. Pruitt, G.J. Hellman, P.J. Patterson, and Yamal Said.

Spanning seven albums total over the course of two years, the series will include legendary Desert Rock bands (to be announced) mixed in with new and upcoming bands.

The artist for the series is Joshua Mathus (Phoenix, AZ) , the creator of the comic Sherbet Lock and stunning album covers for bands over the years.

The albums will be released on limited edition 12″ Vinyl LP, deluxe CD, and on all digital platforms worldwide via Desert Records.

Each album release will be accompanied by the “Legends of the Desert” release shows in each of the band’s cities.
