Get'em While They're Hot

Recommended Posts

Matt just put up an awesome post that explains how he tracks out his demos. (FYI Apple rules). Anyway it is complete with 3 demos, I think they have been posted before, but get on it!.

I'd never heard these three before (although you're right, I think they were posted before) and they are blowing me away with how lush and sweeping they are. Also, now that I've heard about half the demos, I'm really impressed by how cohesively they all fit together. This album is going to kick ass.

 

The post about making the demos is super interesting by itself, too. I really want to get GarageBand. ;)

Empty's Theme Park has an extended ending now, and is encoded in 128kbs compared to the original versions 96kbs.

 

Actually they all might be better quality...

 

 

EDIT

 

Actually Empty's and Boy Who Could are better quality, while The Vancover National Anthem is lower quality...

 

 

 

And yes, even though I've ripped these I'm buying the album. Buy it kids!

According to his Twitter "The demo period is over" as of one hour ago.

I think this was only the 2nd posting of The Boy Who Could Explode. The lyrics are definitely more polished compared to the initial demo.

I am digging this new version!

Wow, I remember skimming that post earlier today, but I guess I missed the demos. ;)

Empty's Theme Park:

 

Used to steal real estate signs

A kid could keep 'em in a basement

Used to stay up all night

A chemistry set of replacements

I've seen that door, I've walked through it both ways before

 

I live just around here, I sleep just around here

I wake up every day, my feet hit the floor in exactly the same place

Tell me, will I love?

Tell me, will it be enough?

Tell me, will I stay with my feet in exactly the same place?

 

Hold me like you'll never let me go

Bear it like you'll never let it show

Shine a light so you'll never let me go

 

I grew up just around here

I sow the field just around here

I wake up every day

The poison in my head behind exactly the same face

Tell me, will I dream?

Tell me, will it be serene?

Tell me, will I stay with my feet in exactly the same place?

 

Hold me like you'll never let me go

Bear it like you'll never let it show

Shine a light so you'll never let me go

Never let me go, never let me go

Again I have to restate I really am liking Empty's Theme Park. The final polished version definitely could find its way into the top 3 fav MG songs. ;)

Thanks for the lyrics, Shane! And yeah, I agree with Dave and Jane ... that song is heartbreakingly beautiful. The "bear it like you'll never let it show" line kills me. It's going to be one long wait until this album comes out.

Vancouver National Anthem is easily my favourite Matt Good demo I've yet to hear. Maybe even my favourite song since While We Were Hunting Rabbits.

And because it was hella slow at work and I seriously had nothing better to do:

 

The Boy Who Could Explode

Who will waste this whole town? (He will waste? You will waste?)

Wipe the knives and go to ground

An equal arrived with a sheet that rained

For all their lies and all their games

I won't wait for you to brave more than one way to be okay

What are you thinking?

Miss my head and yours is just metaphors

I guess we'll always end up more

Beats a life in restraint, hit by powers gone medicated

What are you thinking?

 

Go explode, what time is it that you're waiting for?

What time is it that you're waiting for?

Just go explode, what time is it that you're waiting for?

What time is that you're waiting for?

 

We could waste this whole town

Wipe the knives and go to ground

This music will ride in sheets of rain

For all their lies and all their games

Just being alive don't get you safe

There's more than one way to be okay

What are you thinking?

 

Go explode, what time it that you're waiting for?

What time is it that you're waiting for?

Just go explode, what time is it that you're waiting for?

What time is it that you're waiting for?

I've liked the boy who could explode a lot more after a while of not hearing it. When I first heard it I liked it but didn't think it was one of the better ones after hearing a few demos but now I think it could be a favourite on the new album.

Nice job on deciphering The Boy Who Could Explode.

 

I started a few days ago trying to figure out the lyrics, but couldn't make sense of a few of the lines...thanks for posting them!
