  • 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.

Toursong 02:36
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

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

Young 02:28
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!
4.
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
5.
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
6.
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
7.
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
8.
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
9.
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
10.
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

Slow 02:23
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
12.
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”
