Future Islands Seasons on Dave Letterman

 

WOW…what a great performance. In case you missed it, some old friends of mine from college made a huge debut on the Late Show with Dave Letterman. These guys started out as Art Lord and the Self Portraits, then later evolved into what is now Future Islands. (<<<CLICK<<<) They have a healthy archive of music to check out too going back 10 years…in case you are new to the band. Be sure to look up and listen to their music. It’s brilliant. I’m lucky to have called these guy my friends at one time and it is truly a gift to the world that they now have global exposure. It’s all about love, music is the 4th dimensional goo that helps hold humanity together. Look into my archive for more on music, time, and the 4th dimension. In the meantime, enjoy the song/show above, share, connect. More to come as the seconds tick off faster and faster and faster. Wide eyes open. Love to all. 

Inch of Dust

These guys are old friends of mine from college. The lead singer and I particularly hung out for a brief time, a long time ago. Great group of guys, brilliant musicians, I’m lucky to say that I am friends with the band that made some of the best music I or you will ever know. Anyway, here’s a link to the song mentioned in the post title, “Inch of Dust.” I’ll add the lyrics below for you so you can all enjoy what I have enjoyed for so long.

Inch of Dust


A part of me–you have,
A part of me–you hold,
Apart from me–you stand,
And there’s parts that you have stole.

You collect them in the cupboards
Like the pieces of a puzzle.
And nest just like a mother,
In the dampness of your sweater.
And it’s never put together,
As I’ve watched you from the window.
Behind the curtains, winter,
Moves slowly as a tether.
To wrap around you tightly,
As lovers will in meadows.
To fall in love with shadows,
Where the snow is all but melted.
And it’s never put together,
It’s never put together.
Behind the curtains, winter,
Falls slowly as a feather.

A part of you–I have,
The part of you–I hide.
A part of you I hold,
The part you left behind.
————-
Call on me, I’ll be there always
————-
A part of me–you have,
A part of me–you hold.
Apart from me–you stand,
And there’s parts that you have stole.

A part of you–I have,
The part of you–I hide.
A part of you I stole,
The part you left behind.

 

And here is a link to the actual song… Future Islands – Inch of Dust   Be sure to listen to this and everything else they have, and for a bonus treat, you can look up Art Lord and the Self-Portraits. That was Future Islands before they became such, when we were all just broke college kids trying to figure everything out. Those times are gone, but will never be forgotten. Enjoy. Wide eyes open. Love to all.
