about

Bluster's debut EP.

Catharsis drove much of the songwriting. Joy drove the rest. Initial figments serenaded a trusty companion who lay at our feet and patiently listened; this album is dedicated to him. The bracing winds of an Antarctic-worthy winter helped hone subsequent parts despite stiff fingers from the drafts. Musty air bouncing off of damp, limestone walls influenced the last bits. We hope you enjoy it.

about

Bluster Chicago, Illinois

Described as "the Pixies meet the Raconteurs with Kim Gordon's cousin", Bluster channels punk, garage, and indie sounds of the 90s and 80s such as Hüsker Dü, Mudhoney, Sonic Youth, Fugazi, the Minutemen, and so many other similar bands from those eras. We also have a soft spot for Led-Zeppelin-esque classic rock and occasionally a bit of big-band jazz and vintage country. ... more

Track Name: White Lies Become Gray
Daggers pierce into my heart
Every time you reveal a card

White lies become gray
Always in the way
Make me go insane
Truth hurts but that wanes

Honesty can't be so hard
Empathy only goes so far

White lies become gray
Always in the way
Make me go insane
Truth hurts but that wanes

Haunting present success
Ghosts taunt me
Light heals any distress
Cleansing debris
Track Name: Statements of Intention
The house is torn
The floors are gone
The weeds have grown
The seeds have flown
Everywhere I go
Another footstep falls
Knock on my door
I realize
I'll never see
No time to spare
Come back to me

Statements of intention and approaches
And the interest fades it all cascades it's broken
And I try to make it up but all the words were mangled
Tangled up intention with a token of regret

Too big to fail
The lion's tail
Don't take that call
Don't take that fall
Everywhere I go
It's the same old scene
Staring at me
I realize
I'll never see
No time to spare
Come back to me

Statements of intention and approaches
And the interest fades it all cascades it's broken
And I try to make it up but all the words were mangled
Tangled up intention with a token of regret
Track Name: Cowboy
Aching, anxious, thunderstruck
Wondering how to ease this
Shaking, blazing, craving luck
I just need to feed this
Cannot get unstuck

And I found that I need a cowboy
To fuel my heart's desire
And I found that I need a cowboy
To make cheap love with fire
And I found that I need a cowboy
To fuel my heart's desire
And I found that I need a cowboy
To violate the rules

Floating high, electric zing
Reveling in leisure
Twitching, hazy, in full swing
Practically in seizure
Perfect little fling.

And I found that I need a cowboy
To fuel my heart's desire
And I found that I need a cowboy
To make cheap love with fire
And I found that I need a cowboy
To fuel my heart's desire
And I found that I need a cowboy
To make me feel renewed

I'm carried on a wave of sound
That spins and twirls my head around
With everything in disarray
I scream as ecstasy replaces gray

And I found that I need a cowboy
To fuel my heart's desire
And I found that I need a cowboy
To make cheap love with fire
And I found that I need a cowboy
To fuel my heart's desire
And I found that I need a cowboy
To blissfully break through
Track Name: Let It Go
I'm madder than you'll ever know
Sadder than I'll ever show
It's not that I'm shy to tell you why
It's just that I'm scared to let it go

Let it go, let it go, let it go
Let it go oh oh oh
Let it go, let it go, let it go
Let it go oh oh oh

You tell me I need to take a stand
On the edge of a cliff I feel your hand
Pushing on me to get in the flow
It's just that I'm scared to let it go

Let it go, let it go, let it go
Let it go oh oh oh
Let it go, let it go, let it go
Let it go oh oh oh

I've got a solution
To all this confusion
Throw out the pollution
Spinning my revolution

I'm madder than you'll ever know
Sadder than I'll ever show
It's not that I'm shy to tell you why
It's just that I'm scared to let it go
Track Name: Elegy
Fast cars and platinum hair
Bad boy takes every dare
Breaking hearts between my thighs
Reveling in causing sighs

Young love
No shame
Come back again

Don't die alone
Regretting hope
Don't keep on chasing dragons
So far from home

Poignant music that you played
Songs that linger in my brain
Breaking hearts with serenades
So much brilliance gone to waste

Big heart
Gone away
Sad refrain

Don't die alone
Regretting hope
Don't keep on chasing dragons
So far from home

Unemployed and going gray
Beer gut won't go away
Breaking hearts consuming fire
Can't get monkey to expire

Lost grace
Old pain
Can't explain

Don't die alone
Regretting hope
Don't keep on chasing dragons
So far from home
