  • Calendar: a companion book (BRB026)

    *116 pages on HD color Fedrigoni matte coated paper – Language: English/Italian - 1st press, numbered copies!*

    Every month of 2019 we released a song. Some of the songs were written the month before they were released, while some songs were written as early as 2009. Each month, Eli Wengrin made a cover for the single, and I wrote a little essay to go along with the song. In early 2020, we asked our friends if they had any art or words they would like to share that was, in some way, related to Calendar. All of the contributions have been compiled into this book.

    Looking back at the beginning of the year, it’s hard for me to remember exactly who I was when writing the first entry for Toursong. Whatever sense of identity that I feel today isn’t the same as what I felt a year ago; In a sense, I am a “new person.”

    If Sam from a year ago is a different person from Sam as I am today, there is no reason that I (today) should attribute any more weight to their (me a year ago) wants and desires than I would to any other person who I know. Right now, I relate to a lot of friends more than I do to my past self. I am equal to my peers.

    While making the XTC album “Skylarking”, Virgin Records told Andy Partridge, the band leader, that he had to make the record with an American producer in an attempt to tap into the American market, and eventually Todd Rundgren was hired for the job. The record is amazing, one of my top 5 favorite albums of all time, but the story goes that Andy and Todd butted heads throughout the entire recording process. Their egos were both too big. Now, Andy hates the album. He claims that Todd completely fucked it up at the last second by “reversing the polarity” of the tape, something that would in practice have an undetectable effect on sonic quality.

    There is a song on Skylarking, “A Man Who Sailed Around His Soul.” The song is about a man who tried to “find himself,” but he actually found nothing.

    "Now he sits all alone
    And it's no place like home
    It's empty skin
    A bag to keep life's souvenirs in"

    Ego is a sham. Identity is a sham. Don’t try to find yourself, find others.

Track Name: Toursong
Two weeks on the road together

Let's take this trip and make the whole thing last forever

I wanna go and play in a new city every day
Mathdance all around the west I feel so blessed this tour with you is gonna be the best
Each day we'll find a new surprise

Cause when I'm with you I have a fresh new pair of eyes

The world looks so new without her usual tint of blue
Mathdance all around the west I feel so blessed this tour with you is gonna be the best

Couldn't ask for nothing more
With my best friends playing music in a new town to explore

I can't wait to go on tour
When this trip is finally over

Fuck it, let's just plan another in October


Oh life could be so huge, I'd love to see a piece with you
Mathdance all around the west I feel so blessed this tour with you is gonna be 
the best
Track Name: Waiting (feat. Sleap-e)
Well he comes back to this place
Where the rocks hide in the waves
While he's waiting for the
World to let him go

I'm surrounded by my peers so
I swallow all my fears while
I'm waiting for my chance to be
Alone
Track Name: Young
These precious times spent with you
A I keep on thinking what my life could have been
Assume that day
I was kinda afraid
And the best thing that I ‘ve ever done was on its way

Me and you that May
We were doing great
God I couldn’t wait
To get home from work
Just to make songs with you

Those good old days lived with you
And I think those memories will never fade away
Bologna in spring is
such a beautiful city
I was 22
And i will not forget that May

We were so young
Let’s go back to the start
We were so young
Let’s go back to the start

And happy birthday
To my best friend Samuel
Sam’s super nice
I wish you a good life!
Track Name: The Movies (feat. Pecas & William Corduroy)
I think I’d maybe feel alright
If I could just hang out all night
With you
When we first met out in the streets
That’s when my life first felt complete
It’s true

Forever thankful that I went
To the movies on that fateful
Day
I think of all the fun we’ll have
Together before all our time
Is spent
Track Name: Hong Kong Hike
And while my time goes by
I’m still here
I float around
The sky is black and white
A summer in progress

A rainbow that curves space-time
An octagon fills my eyes
I wash my hands with vapor
I am looking for gators

I stupidly think I’m fine
The reason I’m still awake
And Shiva warns me
"Sam, I fear that you’re still alive”

While Asia is pretty vast
The bamboo tree we’ve just passed
Is a memory that will last
I feel like a chloroplast

On an hong kong hike
I walk with monkeys by my side
Come with me
Let’s go inside a cloud

And if I’ll ever get sad
I am special
Please don’t be mad
Forget Immanuel Kant
And bury me as a plant

On an hong kong hike
I walk with monkeys by my side
Come with me
Let’s go inside a cloud
Track Name: Pleasure and Pain
As soon as I get I home
I pack a bowl of weed
And I get in the zone
I pick a tone
Play a melody

But this much weed
It’s not good for me

Every night I lay awake
And watch TV until the sunrise
Am I alive?
I feel dead

Looks like, once again,
I’m stuck in my head

Take the bus
Eat my lunch
Keep my eyes shut so tight
Pretend all god damn night

I can’t explain why I feel this way
Must be chemicals in my brain
Take my pills and pray they go away

I wish that I could feel
Anything at all
Could be pleasure
Or pain

In the morning my alarm goes off
I turn it off
And stay in bed
No need to fret
I have another set

Cause when I’m waking up
I don’t give a fuck

I go back to sleep and dream that
I am living in another place
Another life
So far away

Fuck I have to wake
Live another day

I get dressed
Try my best
Clench my jaw shut so tight
Pretend that I’m alright

I wish that I didn’t feel this way
High anxiety and migraines
Take my pills and pray they go away

I wish that I could feel
Anything at all
Could be pleasure
Or pain
Track Name: Interlude (feat. High Sunn)
If this goes in I'ma go home
This is the proof that you owed me all
I just wanna get home and practice
Keep on doing stuff that makes me happy

What am I doing
I just need some peace
i went to see Jens Lekman last night
What a show - but then, a surprise!
I met again Gwen from Sactown

And it was strange
It was strange
It was strange
God it’s so strange

And it was frightening
As I felt 22 again
Track Name: The Breeze (feat. Zelma Stone)
Driving to the show I scan the radio
But there's nothing on to make me feel like dancing

Wind in the trees but it won't rustle the leaves
And I can't stop daydreaming about crashing

In due time we can think of all of these things
But for now if you don't mind I'll take a load off my feet

Cause tonight we've got everything that we need
So let's take a moment and we'll try to enjoy the breeze

I've known you quite some time
in fact it feels like my whole life because
I don't know who I'd be if I weren't your friend

Windy city bound, you'll have a whole new stomping ground
I hope I won't be long before I see you again

In due time we can think of all of these things
But for now if you don't mind I'll take a load off my feet

Cause tonight we've got everything that we need
So let's take a moment and we'll try to enjoy the breeze
Track Name: Gratitude (feat. Mediocre Cafe)
Gratitude
Is the feeling that I felt most
When you told me that I was about to die
Ending this joyful life

All those years I spent
thinking of this moment
Now it seems so normal
Just the way it’s supposed to go

Of course I can’t pretend
That I am not afraid
But as I said before
Gratitude is the feeling

It’s time to rest
Forget the past
And have the best dream
You have ever had

I know, you’ve been someone
But all this time has come and gone
And some pain is leaving now

It’s just, picking up your frown
I’m not too sure, we’re leaving it
It’s hard to sit feeling shit

It seems the days are gone
I miss them now
Trestles in your beard
Have grown a mile

It’s time to rest
Forget the past
And have the best dream
You have ever had

As I was always doing something else
I spent my whole life waiting for Godot
As I was always doing something else

It’s time to rest
Forget the past
And have the best dream
You have ever had
Track Name: Powdered Sugar (feat. Boy Romeo)
Powdered sugar feet move so light and sweet
You float towards me every night in my dreams
Please don’t go away, you make me feel ok
I hope one day that you’ll love me this way

Powdered sugar heart, you live life like an art
Stay a while because you make me smile
I am too shy to say that you make me feel this way
Please don’t go away cuz to me your everything.

You're everything, everything to me
Now I’m so afraid why can’t these feelings go away
You're everything, everything to me
Because you have made me see the kind of person I want to be

Powdered sugar feet move so light and sweet
You float towards me every night in my dreams
Please don’t go away, you make me feel ok
I hope one day that you’ll love me this way
Track Name: Slow
As long as I have known
The world has moved too slow
For humans to keep up
We’re stuck in a time zone
I just don’t know anymore
Eleven years have passed
The world’s moving too fast
And I want to stay still
We’re stuck on a treadmill
I just don’t know anymore
The lyrics have been changed
The melody’s the same
Tune’s stuck in my head
It will be till I’m dead
I just don’t know anymore
Track Name: Never Bored (feat. Jimmy Kraft & mnngg)
I can’t see what's right in front of me
I’m still living in the past
I can’t keep up it’s going way too fast
I suppose that I’m just getting older
I’m afraid I haven’t lived enough
I spend so much time on my own

I should stop feeling sorry for myself
'Cause in the end I’m pretty fine
Just another product of my time
Take the time to talk all these things through
Don’t leave it bottled up inside 'cause that
Just leaves you feeling blue

I’ve got so much time but I never feel bored
Anxiety keeps knocking at the door
Just like Ian said, “I want to be adored”
Or like Nina, “Baby I’ve been your whore”

I should strive to always feel my best
But it takes a little bit of work
And I usually just want to rest
Make some space where I can feel alive
Without anyone telling me
I’ll take the responsibility

I’ve got so much time but I never feel bored
Anxiety keeps knocking at the door
Just like Ian said, “I want to be adored”
or like Nina, “Baby I’ve been your whore”

I’ve got so much time but I never feel bored
Anxiety keeps knocking at the door
Just like Ian said, “I want to be adored”
or like Nina, “Baby I’ve been your whore”
