  • Oncle Jazz Double LP (Third Press Hot Pink Vinyl) Sold Out

    *Hot Pink Vinyl Will ship around the 20th of October*

    **************PLEASE READ SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT BELOW******************

    To all Customer outside Canada an U.S.A

    We use U.P.S as a worldwide shipping service.
    Some customers have mentioned having to pay customs and duty charges upon delivery of package. Although we are sad to hear of these charges, we have no way of knowing or controlling these charges. We had to go with UPS tracked packages because in the last year (using Canada post) hundreds of our packages never made it to destination and we can't afford to replace the items and pay for postage again.

    One of the side effect of UPS is that its easy for customs of your country to charge duties.

    On the other hand we do have distribution in Europe through shinybeast.nl in the Netherlands and hhv.de in Germany but the first 3 pressings (black, clear and hot pink) are exclusive to the M.I.T. band camp page.

    once again, sorry for the trouble and thanks for understanding

    **************PLEASE READ SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT BELOW ABOUT BRAZIL******************


    We no longer ship to Brazil.
    If you live in Brazil and purchase on this page, we will automatically cancel order and refund you. If you purchase something and give us an alternate ADDRESS somewhere in the U.S.A., we will accept and ship your order

Track Name: Oncle Jazz
You’re listening to Oncle Jazz
Track Name: Norton Commander (album v)
My friend, you know you had your time a while
But I’m willing to give you mine
Few things we both have, keep us alive
My life and our true love
Is all we need...

I don’t want to feel
A world against our love
I don’t want to grow old
A lone broken heart
Track Name: Days Go By
Days go by and I still don’t know how and why
I still make my way without you, without you

Days go by and I still don’t know how and why
I still make my way and hang through, hang through

One more week loosing lottery
Oh I try to find a sense of mockery, Oh I

Days go by and I still don’t know how and why
I still make way without you, without you

One more week loosing lottery
Oh I try to find a sense of mockery, Oh I
Track Name: Tailwhip (album v)
I’m Happy as I am
‘Cause I’m leaving
Days will be the same
In a different way

Going to a place
Where I used to stay
Writing something new
In this home I know

We’ll be all right
Stay here some time
This country dog
Won’t die in the city

We’ll be all right
Stay here some time
This country dog won’t die in the city

We’ll be all right
Stay here some time
This country dog
Won’t die in the city

We’ll be all right
Stay here some time
This country dog won’t die in the city

Right eyelids closed
Both feet behind
I aim for tomorrow
Work on my mind

Going to a place
Where I used to stay
Writing something new
In this home I know

We’ll be all right
Stay here some time
This country dog
Won’t die in the city

We’ll be all right
Stay here some time
This country dog won’t die in the city

We’ll be all right
Stay here some time
This country dog
Won’t die in the city

We’ll be all right
Stay here some time
This country dog won’t die in the city
Track Name: Found Me
Motion blurred dream visions and kindred faces
Thoughts like bursts of youth taking me places
Living the best outcome of myself
‘Cause I do remember where I come from

I’m happy my home found me
By which force I do not know
I found my home and it grows by me in beauty

I feel air from another planet akin
Like a sense of truth that comes from within
A budding sapling reaching through
Giving rise to higher fruit and view

I’m happy my home found me
By which force I do not know
I found my home and it grows by me in beauty

I’m happy my home found me
By which force I do not know
I found my home and it grows by me in beauty
Track Name: Numb (album v)
Hon, please forgive me if I ever did you wrong
I'll be your candle; burn me upside down
From now on, I won't sleep on my arms

Numb, is how I feel deep inside my soul
Need to feel that I am on the line
I'm sorry that I dragged you down my way

Hon, I never meant to cheat you out of time
In cold mornings when our sheets are warm
I see a flower with no needles on (so far)

Stung, and there's a bee that gave it all away
Pretty eyes now filled with pain
A young confusion, what a shame
Track Name: Say Can You Hear (album v)
Say, can you hear
Is there a meaning to your grief?
Where there is pain
You see grace
As if sacrifice
Was meaningful end in itself
Your trial and error is error and error

Staying at the end of a hallway
Dozens of doors you never tried to open
Narrow vision, you’re the scapegoat
You fix things that have never been

Hoping for your turn
All the basement stories you heard
Waiting for the world
To bend around you

You’re self-absorbed
Raving about your cryptic ways
Aren’t willing to change
Old grudges

Staying at the end of a hallway
Dozens of doors you never tried to open
Narrow vision, you’re the scapegoat
You fix things that have never been

Staying at the end of a hallway
Dozens of doors you never tried to open
Narrow vision, you’re the scapegoat
You fix things that have never been broken

Waiting for the world
To bend around you
Track Name: All Night
You wrap my feet in coloured blankets
So I stay here all night
You keep the one with many moons and stars
It’s always for my shoulders

So I Stay here ‘till waking hours
Tell me how do you make everything feel a little easier
So I Stay here ‘till waking hours
Who could ever be this good to me,
I just can’t help but wonder

You put a shirt on the ceiling light
So the room won’t be too bright
You give me time to be what I can be
You’re never ahead, never behind me

So I Stay here ‘till waking hours
Tell me how do you make everything feel a little easier
So I Stay here ‘till waking hours
Who could ever be this good to me,
I just can’t help but wonder
Track Name: I Hope To Be Around (album v)
I hope to be around
The day we grasp in truth
The nature of mind
Befriending time, in truth

In a midway I stand where many stood
Only to come home again
Walking through these streets I know too well
But my thoughts stray away

I dream of my future
Remote from time bounds
Becoming myself
Without any end

I dream of my future
Remote from time bounds
Becoming myself
In truth

I wonder at this light
Enclosed in our soul, in truth
And bid our clay remain,
Soft as it is, in truth

In a midway I stand where many stood
Only to come home again
Walking through these streets I know too well
But my thoughts stray away

I dream of my future
Remote from time bounds
Becoming myself
Without any end

I dream of my future
Remote from time bounds
Becoming myself
In truth

I dream of my future
Remote from time bounds
Becoming myself
Without any end

I dream of my future
Remote from time bounds
Becoming myself
In truth
Track Name: Dorian
I recall polar days like these by the Zora river
Before heading nearby to quench my thirst
Writers and few musicians among the local drunk
Tentative relief, together blank

So I dream about C.R.E.A.M. tonight
White flag night
Wicked night
‘Cause

I miss October nights in Parc
Miss the corner store small talk
Smoke indoors past four
Come on Jean-Talon

I miss October nights in Parc
Miss the corner store small talk
Smoke indoors past four
Come on Jean-Talon
Track Name: Pines
Bae, you’re leaving again?
It’s rainy outside you know
Don’t wanna get cold
“Bye, I’m running late”
Didn’t say where she went
God knows

Bae, you’re running away
Lost in the eye of men
You’re roaming your way
And he waits
While she is so close to home
Warmed up so that she stays
His bae

He told her "Bae, the porch is unlocked
Even though no one else
Comes by the front
Now, I sense why the men
Who live in these empty lands
Don’t use them"

Singing "she moves like wind
By deserted pines
Who stand tall unstirred"
Ran out of milk
Wearing her nice shoes
She likes coffee dark

He said "Bae, you’re running away
Lost in the eye of men
You’re roaming your way"
And he waits
While she is so close
Warmed up so that she stays
His bae
Track Name: Fiero GT
You’re listening to radio Men I Trust
Track Name: Seven (album v)
In the shadows he saw four eyes, lit by fire… fire
He’d never done that with a lover, before…before
Meanwhile everyone else got lost in quiet, by the river
Seeking for more, of course he found better…better

He saw them, they saw him
But everyone just kept on going
What he saw was different
He should have gone to bed
But instead he stuck around for the mood

In the shadows he saw four eyes, lit by fire… fire
He’d never done that with a lover, before…before
Either early or too late, it was number seven… and it happened
High like a bird with his beak through the window

He saw them, they saw him
But everyone just kept on going
What he saw was different
He should have gone to bed
But instead he stuck around for the mood

He saw them, they saw him
But everyone just kept on going
What he saw was different
He should have gone to bed
But instead he stuck around for the mood
Track Name: Show Me How (album v)
Show me how you care,
Tell me how you were loved before
Show me how you smile,
Tell me why your hands are cold

I’m turning around,
I’m having visions of you
But then I understand
The friend I’m dreaming of is far away
But I’m here... I’m here

Show me how you’re proud,
Tell me how you reach the moon

My thoughts err away tonight
My heart fell to love again

I’m turning around I’m having visions of you
But then I understand
The friend I’m dreaming of is far away
And doesn’t feel my love
But I do... I do
Track Name: Alright
Alright
Track Name: You Deserve This (album v)
My feelings are true
With ease they allow
The flow of my will
And good sake for you
And good sake for you

This is your past
Before you’re born
For you to see
You deserve it

These things I won’t change
They keep me relaxed
It’s always my way
They keep me relaxed
It’s always my way
Track Name: Pierre
Pierre,
You’re not lone
Say, I hope you understand?

Pierre,
You’re my friend
There’s a place you can call home

Those eyes
Tell me something’s odd
You’re there but you’re not here
You understand?

You care,
It might not look this way
Couldn’t be less true
You understand

Pierre,
You’re not lone
Say, I hope you understand?

Pierre,
You’re my friend
There’s a place you still call home

My friend
You have a vivid quill
A gift you need to use
To feel alive

Those hands
Look like crooked roots
Pour them the right stuff
And feel alive
Track Name: Air
I need some air
Vampire town
No one out

You were there and cold
Didn’t smoke
Made it count

So I thought you could come over ‘mine sometime
Our loneliness now gone
So I thought you could come over ‘mine sometime
Have we ever been old friends?

I didn’t think
Late in time
We’d meet again

You looked a bit old
In this cold
You stood out

So I thought you could come over ‘mine sometime
Our loneliness now gone
So I thought you could come over ‘mine sometime
Have we ever been old friends?
Track Name: Porcelain
Mumbling
“Edelweiss“
I couldn’t catch
Your eyes

“Mama,
What went wrong?
Forgot why I’m still here
Silent calls”

You slowly bend over the table
Our sleepless bodies tumbling down
Still watching scenes from 1994
I don’t feel anything at all

Morning
Red like wine
Got me trapped under
Venetian blinds

One more
Piece of cake
Round and round they go
I’m porcelain

You slowly bend over the table
Our sleepless bodies tumbling down
Still watching scenes from 1994
I don’t feel anything at all
Track Name: Something In Water
Fall of joyful fights
Left me dreaming so long
Hiding in my sleep
Twenty of your hands left on
Must be something in water

In this land with no sea
Hoping time forgot me
‘Cause I can’t hold your love
Only your full weight on me
Must be something in water

I should go away
Far from the Dashoa
Far from the same stairs
Your bathroom drawn in fake vanilla smell
Knowing I don’t want better

In this land with no sea
Hoping time forgot me
‘Cause I don’t need your love
Only your full weight
