I collide with the world again
Creep with the summer on my skin
Strapped to machinery, theory and catastrophe
Open up and let it in

Radar, we are, could be willing
Spot my eyes and cross the line
Tell me I'm more than I'm feeling
Say the mirror only lies

There's more than gravity pushing on me
I know the heart's a muscle, too
See a pulse up close and quiver
Still holding back the rapture
There's more than gravity pushing on me
Gravity decides

Radar, we are, could be willing
Spot my eyes and cross the line
Tell me I'm more than I'm feeling
Say the mirror only lies

There's more than gravity pushing on me
I know the heart's a muscle, too
See a pulse up close and quiver
Still holding back the rapture

There's more than gravity pushing on me
Gravity decides
Mirrors only lie
Gravity decides

Nice.
Very nice.

 
Yeah, it's a cool tune, nice production.  It sounds like they're using a baritone guitar in the mix: it gives a slight Morricone/Badalamenti feel to it.
Nice.
Very nice.
strange. when this first came out, i didn't pay it much mind. it's actually a really solid tune.

maybe it reminds you of the time you snuck onto the grounds where they filmed "Sunset Boulevard", you had on your Sears overcoat, and kept wondering when Security would start chasing you, but they never came man, and around that hedge was the swimming pool... oh wow man

yeah it sounds donovan esque

 
Good call. The vocals, but not the music itself, I think. 
{#Bananajam}The grooves of 'Natural One' continue...
yeah it sounds donovan esque

Why do I hear strains of Donovan?
 
Yes, but without the chin.

A pretty nice song ...very cruisey
Always in the mood to hear Lou Barlow.  Thanks!
Shit, just caught the end of this
Folk me, Bill!
Second time I come to check what's this song..  

7 >> 8
Tough call to follow SS...........
"Something new from Folk Implosion" says Bill. This is one very old re-run.
I really like this from these guys.
I don't care much for their hit.
on my walk to work i thought it would be great to hear some folk implosion on RP!!  awesome!

Wait... this band had a song other than "Natural One"?
i'm glad to hear it! otherwise, i might not have bought it like i'm doing right very now.
If you don't own this CD, you don't know what you're missing. It had the same effect on me then as Porcupine Tree does now. I couldn't listen to it enough.
Wait... this band had a song other than "Natural One"? And something not on the Kids soundtrack... freaky...

It's not just you, I thought that this was Donovan at first too.
Folk Implosion and Sebadoh in the same day. Bill, you spoil us. BTW Lou Barlow was back playing bass with Dinosaur Jr last month on a small tour in the Northeast. Good time.
*snaps fingers*rocksheadfromsidetoside* yah!
Why do I hear strains of Donovan?
i remember them from the tune "Natural One" which i like better than this one.

The arrangement reminds me of The Doors. I can almost hear "Mr. Mojo Risin" singing these wounded lyrics. Good stuff.
songs that remind me of the Doors are never good (a favourite quote of mine from Uncut Magazine The Doors: a bar band that got lucky). This doesn't remind me of (to quote Denis Leary) "Big fat dead guy in a bathtub" and his partners in music crime, so i do agree with your final analysis. Good stuff indeed!
:grumpy: yuck

"I know the heart's a muscle, too" :think:Damnit! I thought I was the only one!:frustrated:
Ok, I want to like Folk Implosion ... I listen, I don't really likey. This song allows me to say mhmm ... I do likey a little. I probably don't like enough to buy a CD, but I likey enough to suspend judgement. :think:
uhhh??? Who? OH!!!! Wow. Play more!
:bounce:
Holy crap - aren't these the same guys who do "Natural One?" This is more interesting, though. I like this well enough...
I have to admit I was shocked to look up and see that this was Folk implosion. It is great to hear some of their "other" songs. More folk implosion indeed! indigo_xia wrote:

Well put! My sentiment indeed! You did mean that in a good way, right?
how else could it have been meant? ;-) Folk Implosion is goodness, rich creamy goodness.

Really great and relaxing... from a quite cold Stockholm.
