about

Erik Blood Seattle, Washington

Erik Blood creates music that lives in the magic hour. His production is a nuanced secret told only to his co-conspirators (Shabazz Palaces, Moondoggies, THEESatisfaction most notably). After two albums and a film score, Blood is delving further inward, into the dream, and returning with tales and melodies that evoke the warmth between two bodies and the dizziness of love, sex, or other substances ... more

Track Name: The Attic System
We rise to walk in the golden hour
Alight in a sun stung haze
Beside me, you render a forceful power
All right, no mistakes
And if we want to go back, go back
It’s what we decide
And if we want to turn ‘round, turn ‘round
It won’t be to hide

The words we said, we said in modern tongue
But if the meaning was heard, was heard by all but one
How do we get away with this?
How do we get away with this?

The love we share, we share with ancient signs
We can get carried away, away to further sights
How do we get away with this?
How do we get away with this?
Or do we get away with this?
Track Name: Chase the Clouds
Amidst a winter rain dripping down your face
A burst of light ahead, you try to look away
Oh no, it’s time, it’s time you move along
Oh yeah, it’s on, it’s you and you alone

When all the colors of the sun
Appear to me it’s on, it’s on, it’s on, it’s on

A sound, that old familiar glow
That sings to me, it’s on, it’s on, it’s on, it’s on
A love like only you can show
Revealed to me, it’s on, it’s on, it’s on, it’s on

All of the vibrations in my heart
All the shining colors break apart
Track Name: Bloused Up
Bloused up and ready to take on
Another in a long cold line of insults
You see my silver crown as grey and dull
It all seems so scary, and no one can hear me

You’ve seen his face before
He blows in from off shore
Not sure just what he’s looking for
Deletes his contacts all before

Bloused up, I’m ready to get on
But then I see that white boy’s hair and I’m so…
Am I mysterious in my desire or predictable
It all seems so scary, I’m bloused up and ready

And I, I can’t be sure it’s you
The stupid stuff we do
To keep things as they were
To keep us undeterred
To keep our thoughts interred
Track Name: Covered in a Color
In my dream you were covered in a color
Golden leaves blotting out the sky
Holding on to a portrait of another
And you turn toward the mountain high

Wait, wait, I can’t follow you where you hide
Wait, wait, let me carry you home inside

In my dream you were covered in a color
Burning fields scatter ashes far
Though the haze rises up above my shoulder
I will always know where you are

Wait, wait, I can’t follow you where you hide
Wait, wait, let me carry you home inside
Track Name: Quiet
Quiet the sound that torments me
Quiet this house, this heart can sleep
And it could be the sun that hangs in place
And it could be another stone that follows me
Across my face

Quiet the sound that’s calling me
Quiet the time so hard on me
You think you have us dead to rights
You haven’t yet
As if it wasn’t the setting sun that silenced me
Into something I haven’t been

I hear you calling, am I sleeping
I hear you calling, am I dreaming
I hear you calling, am I sleeping
I hear you calling, I hear you calling

As if it wasn’t the setting sun that silenced me

I hear you calling

Quiet
Track Name: Remove Control
We move with the waves, surrender to the tide

If we can’t take the time that we take
It’s staying inside
If we can change our love, it won’t break
It’s staying inside
If we can’t take the time that we take
It’s staying inside

It’s all missteps, it’s all mistakes
It’s all reshot, it’s all reshaped
It’s all hidden, it’s all replayed
It’s all instant, it’s all it takes
To remove control

If we can’t take the time that we take
It’s staying inside
But please don’t change my love it won’t break
It’s staying inside
If we can’t take the time that we take
It’s staying inside

It’s all missteps, it’s all mistakes
It’s all reshot, it’s all reshaped
It’s all hidden, it’s all replayed
It’s all instant, it’s all it takes

So fire let’s get on
Track Name: Hold for Laughs
If I should fall from the ceiling
Before the place you are kneeling
Don’t let me disturb your grieving
Or fill in the space that I’m leaving
And although I deserve this beating
I haven’t misplaced my good feelings
From under his cape, he is bleeding
Childish accidents all competing
I believe I deserve this beating
But I haven’t misplaced my good feelings

No room for all in this cold early fall
Finish all ways late
No room for all in this cold early fall
Finish all ways late

I’m using all of my patience
Repeating the same conversations
We keep warm inside the station
Unsure which direction I’m facing
And although I deserve this beating
I haven’t misplaced my good feelings

No room for all in this cold early fall
Finish all ways late
No room for all in this cold early fall
Finish all ways late
Late
Track Name: Ostrich
I would do an hour in English
If it could inspire your interest
Am I too slow down as I get
Ten feet from your door and we step
I understand the light, I know that that’s my time
And I won’t cross the line, it’s just that
I’m liking the way your skin gets
When we minimize the distance

Why can’t we just fall down here

We can go way too far, we can go way too far
Track Name: Out This Way
So lovely that you called and listened
I love the way you are, I wish it could be different
But things always happen, games we play
Our hourglass of sand has ran out again
And again it always happens
We pebbles in the ocean, just lost in slow motion
