Against Dreaming

from Want, For Nothing by Danger Grove

/
  • Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    Thick, rich, and wide grooves that harbour bass that pounds and rhymes that do a sad, but weird though?

    Meghan's glorious artwork is big and huge and bold, like how it was meant to be seen. It almost glows in your hand, like rapidly cooling embers as the deepest darkness of the wood encroaches. The labels on the vinyl have their own special image that you can't even see on the internet yet.

    To the untrained eye, the vinyl itself may appear black. It is not only black; it is dark. It is so very, very dark.

    If you buy two copies you can juggle them. Some of these lines would be really mean to use in a DMC or ITF routine, so that's fun! We even made sure not to have it pressed on gross, lazy 180g vinyl which is a conspiracy by whoever sets shipping prices. We're onto you!

  • Cassette + Digital Album

    I don't think Lizard was even born when tapes were cool.

    I'm not sure any of us were born, at all.

    This casette is the colour of night, except the animals are the colours of animals. It has a bonus track that's not available on streaming sites or CD and it has that "cassette tape" sound you love.

  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    I mean the cover is beautiful; the disc itself is printed with a gorgeous special picture of even more animals. The text is big enough to read easily unless you have useless bear eyes like Jesse, and you can play it in a car from ten years ago. It'll probably thump, too.

    Yeah actually I'm not sure why I was so dismissive at first. This disc is, if nothing else, pretty compact. You could probably carry twenty or thirty of them around with you and not even feel tired. Wanna try? Pony up.

about

"Jesse Dangerously poursuit dans cette voie, son titre navigue en haut altitude. Le rappeur d’Halifax est fou, ça on le sait, et quand son flow chanté estampillé Backburner se transforme en mitraillette, on en redemande. Le final de son Against Dreaming est une petite merveille comme seuls les Canadiens savent le faire." - Indie Rock Magazine

originally included on "IRMxTP Part IX - The Gifted and the Damned (Great Players Are Either Far or Few)," released October 18, 2017 and available here: indierockmag.bandcamp.com/album/irmxtp-part-ix-the-gifted-and-the-damned-great-players-are-either-far-or-few

if you want to hear the earliest earliest demo version from before it got all groved up, go to patreon.com/rljd and pledge any amount. it's in the archives.

lyrics

Everything is how it seems
And it means what it is known to mean
I don't speak about my dreams
I am just where I'm supposed to be

Where there's wanting, where there's longing
There are ghosts and there is haunting
There are notes left in the morning
There is mourning what is gone

When there's something that's important
All the humors in your organs
Make you melancholic, stop it, silly
Really nothing's wrong.

i close my eyes and see nothing and nothing is
what I want and what I want to be is nothing
what I got is enough for me, and other than
that I couldn't imagine another thing

((where did they hide the third verse?))
