about

Before we get into all of the specifics & credits, some thank-you’s are in order. We’d love to thank you each by name, but space is tight & times are tough. So! Thank you to our friends & families for the support, love, tolerance, & for traveling reasonable & ludicrous distances to see us perform. Thank you to everyone who’s ever come out to a show, shared a link, commented on a song, bought us a drink or bought something from us, much less done any of these more than once. That sort of foolhardiness demands recognition! Thank you to every single musician we have ever shared a stage, amphitheater, flatbed trailer, couch, steps, stump, floor, or farmer’s market with.

Low Rent Monster was recorded between August 2011 & December 2012 at Studio Ant Eels. It was mixed & mastered between January 2013 & February 2013 at Fishtank Audio. It features Brian Zeitler on keyboards, Daniel Sherwood on guitars, harmonica & vocals, Seth Ellsworth on viola & vocals, Stamati Arakas on drums, & Stephanie Sherwood on bass guitar & vocals. It was engineered by Daniel Sherwood, but could not have sounded a fraction as good as it does without David Fisher’s help in the beginning & the magic of Fishtank Audio’s Jack Campitelli in the end.

Low Rent Monster was produced, engineered, & mixed by Daniel Sherwood. Additional engineering was provided by David Fisher. Additional mixing was provided by Jack Campitelli. Mastering was provided by Jack Campitelli. Artwork was created by Stephanie Sherwood.

All songs by Daniel Sherwood. All arrangements by Coal Fired Bicycle. Low Rent Monster was released in 2013 under Creative Commons license. (Attribution, Noncommercial, No Derivative Works) Some rights reserved.

Track Name: Sweet Maya
You can have your way
And I’ll have mine
And we’ll both get on like the end of times
Oh, My sweet Maya

We don’t have to fight
We can just shut up
And we’ll paint a pretty picture of what the other thinks
Oh, My sweet Maya

My sweet Maya
Where did the clouds come from?
My sweet Maya
Is that where was the sun born?
And my sweet Maya
If you should die today
My sweet Maya
Is that where you’ll go?

You live half your life
And I’ll live half of mine
And we’ll trade the rest in on a busted motor-home
Oh, My sweet Maya

We can tool around
We can get lost out there
And we’ll send back postcards in our own dead language
Oh, My sweet Maya

My sweet Maya
Where did the clouds come from?
My sweet Maya
Is that where was the sun born?
And my sweet Maya
If you should die today
My sweet Maya
Is that where you’ll go?
Track Name: Anywhere But Utah
Turncoat you feel
Ecclesiastic
You fall like water
On the surface of the sun

It’s no matter
It’s no heartache
Outside of the patio
Beyond the bluffs

Scatter my ashes
Anywhere but Utah
Scatter my ashes
Anywhere but Utah

Sweetmeat will stop
Distracting
You scatter like broken
Glass roaches of the heart

I can’t be bothered
I can’t be tempted
Not with eternal life
Not with the cross

Scatter my ashes
Anywhere but Utah
Scatter my ashes
Anywhere but Utah
Track Name: Faith Away
Your god and you make an awkward team
That’s okay
It’s okay, its okay, it’s okay.
Your prophecies are shaking like your suburban stairs
And that’s alright
It’s alright, it’s alright, it’s alright

The bible that you’re beating
Was made in China by slave labor
You lie to your kids about
History and the world

Because you got to feel right
You gotta do it on the cheap
Yeah, you have to fit in
You can faith away anything

All your sins, they all look the same
And that’s alright
It’s alright, it’s alright, it’s alright
Some are ignored, the others yield beatings
What the fuck?
What kind of hell are you selling?

The cross that you’re wearing
Is covered in blood diamonds
I can’t help but wonder
How much your vanity costs in lives.

Because you got to feel right
You gotta do it on the cheap
Yeah, you have to fit in
You can faith away anything
Track Name: Range Rover
You’re a full time asshole
And an old-school bastard
You’re a full time asshole
And an old-school bastard

Red Rover, Range Rover
Send yourself over a cliff

You’re a low rent monster
And a vegan cannibal
You’re a low rent monster
And a vegan cannibal

Red Rover, Range Rover
Send yourself over a cliff
Red Rover, Range Rover
Send yourself into the sea

Lousy dictator
And lapsing Christian soldier
A lousy dictator
And lapsing Christian soldier

Red Rover, Range Rover
Send yourself over a cliff
Red Rover, Range Rover
Send yourself into the sea
Red Rover, Range Rover
Send yourself below the waves
Track Name: Little Rabbit
Hey there little rabbit
I want to talk to you
I want to tell you how to live
Like proper rabbits do

Hey there naked rabbit
You need to get a suit like me
Keep running around in just your fur
And someone's liable to see

We can't have that
We can't have that
We can't have that going on

Hey there little rabbit
You need to get big like me
You need to be able to tell all the little rabbits
Going to throw them in the sea

Hey there big rabbit
Shut your fucking mouth
You're hanging out in my briar patch
Where all my friends can see

We can't have that
We can't have you
We can't let you get away
