Craig Bosel Best female voice I have heard in a long time. Roo has an incredible range that shifts from smooth intimacy to bellicose wailing and back again. The songs are honest and interesting without pretension or self awareness. The sound is full and textured thanks to layered vocals, complex arrangements, and solid drumming. Great effort for just two musicians. This album really needs to be heard. Favorite track: Black Widow.

WHAT WILL YOU BE EXPECTING
SPIRALLING ANTI-CLIMAX HIGHER TO THE LOWER
MORE AND MORE AND MORE AND MORE AND MORE
YOU SQUEEZE ‘TIL I RUN DRY
WHAT WILL YOU BE EXPECTING
JUST LIKE DRAWING BLOOD FROM A STONE
THERE AIN’T NOTHIN’ LEFT FROM ME TO YOU
MORE AND MORE AND MORE AND MORE
YOU SQUEEZE ‘TIL I RUN DRY

AIN’T YOU EVER HEARD OF GIVE AND TAKE
YOU BLED ME DRY
TAKIN’ ALL THAT I COULD GIVE
YOU LEFT ME LOW TO GET YOURSELF HIGH

ONE FAR AWAY FROM US
MY FRIEND I THINK I LOVE YOU
MY FRIEND I WANNA WAKE WITH YOU IN ANOTHER LAND
ONE FAR AWAY FROM HERE
ONE FAR

AND I DON’T WANNA DIE
BUT I’M SO SICK OF CRYIN’ AND I DON’T WANNA CRY NO MORE

ON A SANITY TRIP
MAKING LOVE TO THE COMERA
ON AN INSANITY TRIP
CHASIN’ SCOTCH WITH VODKA ALRIGHT
Track Name: Soul Friend
FIRST BIRD CALLIN’
YOU’VE BEEN UP ALL NIGHT
MIND’S A RACIN’
FLIGHTY LIKE A BUTTERFLY

YOU WANNA FIND YOUR WAY
FIND YOUR FOOTING RUN AWAY
FIND YOUR ANAM CARA IS YOUR OWN CLAY
FIRST WORD OF WARNING
THE RAIN MAY FALL
ONLY WASHES IT AWAY FOR A SHORT WHILE
WHEN YOU’RE FLIGHTY LIKE A BUTTERFLY
SINGIN’ PRETTY LIKE A WREN

FEEL LIKE A FOOL THINKIN’ THEY’RE ALL
SOME KIND OF WONDERFUL NOW
FEEL LIKE A PLAY THING
Track Name: Catfish Stew
YOU AIN’T NOTHIN’ BUT A CATFISH
STEW IN WHAT YOU’VE BEEN COOKIN’
WEARIN’ A MASK BUT NO-ONE’S LOOKIN’
THROW OUT THE BAIT BUT NO-ONE’S HOOKIN’
EXPOSE WHO YOU ARE AND YOU’LL BE BOOKIN’
WHO’S FOOLIN’ WHO NOW WHO’S FOOLIN’ WHO
WITH YOUR LIST OF FRUSTRATIONS AND TWIST OF THE KNIFE
TRY AND PULL THEM THROUGH YOUR/THE MONOTONOUS FIGHT
COME OUT FROM THE SHADOWS INTO THE NIGHT
SUCKIN’ ON YOUR CATFISH STEW

HIDDEN BEHIND PANES OF GLASS
SHATTER YOUR DECEPTION
X-RAY VISION AND A CLEAR HEAD
SHATTER YOUR ILLUSION
COME OUT FROM THE SHADOWS INTO THE LIGHT
ILLUMINATE YOUR BULLSHIT
COME OUT FROM THE SHADOWS INTO THE LIGHT
ILLUMINATE YOUR LIFE

YOU AIN’T FOOLIN’ NO-ONE
SWIM AWAY AND HIDE
THINK YOU’RE REALLY CLEVER/COPY CAT CREEPER
BUT YOU’RE DEAD INSIDE
Track Name: Slammed
ANCHORED TO A PLACE UNKNOWN WITH YOUR BACK UP
FLOATING ON THE BREEZE EVER READY TO BLOW THEM ALL AWAY
THEY’RE ALL A GIMMICK MONOTONOUS EXAGGERATING IN LOVE WITH YOU
OR SO WE’VE HEARD
SO MUCH AN HOUR TO VISIT THE SADIST
WHO’S LOST THE WILL TO KILL
THEY’LL STILL NAME YOU SHAME YOU FRAME YOU MAME YOU
BUT IT’S NOT QUITE THE SAME ANY MORE NOW IS IT

OH MAN IT NEARLY HURT MY FEELING
OH MAN YOUR ASSUMPTIONS THROUGH THE CEILING

IF NONE OF US ARE WORKING FOR YOU AND ONLY YOU
HOW DARE WE DO OUR DO
SO BEGINS THE MIND GAMES FOR YOUR GIRL FRIDAYS
DULL BLADED BACKSTABBING IMPRECISE BUT EFFECTIVE
VISIT THE HYPOCRITE FOR ADVICE ON LIFE
THEY’RE STILL SLOWLY KILLING THEMSELVES FROM THE INSIDE OUT
JUST MORE COFFEE TABLE BULLSHIT
THEY ALL JUST LOOK LIKE YOU YOU KNOW THEY WANNA BE YOU
DON’T WE AGREE SO WE’VE HEARD

NO LASTING FRIENDSHIP TO BE GAINED FROM A SCOUNDREL
NO HAPPY LESSONS TO BE GAINED FROM A CHARLETAIN

OH MAN IT SETS MY GREY MATTER TWITCHIN’
OH MAN YOU LIE WITH DOGS YOU END UP ITCHIN’
OH MAN WILL IT MAKE IT FEEL ALL BETTER
OH MAN WHO CAN YOU HURT TO MATTER

THERE’S A PERSON WHO WANTS FOR EVERYTHING AND CHERISHES NOTHING
SILVER TONGUED BULLSHIT NEVER ENDING
IT’S JUST OBSERVATION STEEPED IN EXAMPLE
BUT WHAT WOULD I KNOW
I’M NO GOOD WITH THEORIES
