Under the monochrome sky Distance stretching wide Just a little more time Wait for the veil to rise Over threadbare eyes Tumbling into A concrete collapse No starting over no No looking back Just a little more time Just a little more time Just a little more time Just a little more time Tumbling into A concrete collapse No starting over no No looking back

about

Auto Pilot is a deeply personal album constructed with material dating back to the late 90's and across several locations in Los Angeles and elsewhere. The theme of place, in fact, figures very heavily into the album as over half of the titles are named after specific locations rendered diffuse via context. Transit in general and also specifically the 5 corridor from East LA to San Diego figures into the album as well. A transit not only of place but also of time in which the present collapses into the past and the future seems to recede by some force of nature or optical illusion. A gestalt in which the edges are impossible to perceive. The tyranny of architecture....of the voice-over...of the robo-call. The inability to reclaim what has passed but via cassette tapes. The ache of lost futures.

Above all I am interested in that which is not 2020 but along the path to something simultaneously forwards and backwards. Restless, hungry spirits on Auto Pilot along the libidinal highways.
