Hattie I remember hearing part of the song 'Tortiose' back in 2014 on Spotify. I panicked trying to click on the add to figure out what band had such a divine sound.
6 years later, I still listen to this Saturday Morning album and enjoy the strange sound.
Also, the cover art is delightfully creepy.

Tortoise 04:25
I once was lost but now I'm still lost and loving it I wouldn't give it up for anything 'cause now I'm free to go anywhere my heart is open to the sound, the smell, the taste and it's time to forget the past the present, future only now have we begun to wake from those nightmares gone no the new dreams come and can't you wait for a minute for heaven's sake you know you're already there won't you open your eyes and look around at what the world's all about 'cause I'm not about to hold my breath and wait for other people to understand that I have no plan to call my own and my home is on my back like a tortoise shell you know they have no hell they just have now and it's what you make of it only you decide how you spend your time but if you really live even for a second in time and space you know that's already more than most people will live in their whole lives and that's what the world's all about not about
Had a Voice 02:24
I had a voice but then I lost it now I can't find it till you're back in my heart now till you're back in my heart I had a spine but now it's aching a crooked line I guess I must be getting older but I'm not any wiser got a stupid, empty heart my feet are dirty 'cause they've been walkin' and they'll keep walkin' till they come to your door gonna come to your door because I'll find you if it kills me you'll find my body in a crumpled heap on your floor now but at least I'll be happy 'cause you're back in my heart because my head is so illuminated there is just one organ that I can depend on the one full of iron the one that pulls me like a compass to your pole and when you said this light is creeping in the mountains has a bright spot it's something I forgot remember I will not and that's why I love you 'cause you remind me all the time
Sanguine 05:26
wake up, eat, work, eat, sleep spring, summer, fall, winter, spring concentric circles find a way into everything stop to think and dismiss eyes closed in sanguine bliss I know it's hit or miss relax and reminisce hold on to that little thing that keeps you going through it grab on to that giant thing that's sweeping through you, don't give in a civil war errupts the losses aren't complete save for the battlefield where the soldiers all compete ----- just give me an hour or two to close my eyes and I'll promise to stay awake with you all night chase away these ghosts we talk about that live behind these walls right out your door into the world where they belong these lights that we hold are faint little glimmers in the dark gotta get out and live our lives tonight but we're stuck within these goddamned walls wish someone would come along and let us out into the world where we belong
all these neighborhoods distinctions not understood we could reconsider our options and open them up airports and highway roads connecting the lives of those that move and those that are moved by the notion to run run to the borderline


Five songs! Weird time signatures! Awesome rock out sessions! It goes from whisper quiet to roaring loud, and all kinds of stuff in between!
