A girl is suspended motionless from the ceiling by two ropes.
A photo album lies on a wooden table with uneven legs.
Outside a hatchling falls from a nest 100 feet up in the branches of an old coast redwood.
A rifle is suspended by a strap across a young man’s back
And a young boy sits on a flat surface pulled by an unseen rope.
A man jumps from a 200 foot cantilever bridge at the place where two men walked hand in hand.
The prisoner stands naked in a cold cell.
She lies on a stranger’s bed in an unfamiliar town
A young woman sits on a bench as a man weeps at the pulpit.
A man lies on an inclined board, his arms and legs bound, his face covered with wet rags.
She hates the situation, not the people.
He takes a deep, labored breath at dawn thinking about what he once did.
She lays her head on his shoulder and cries.
Consider the magnitude of all relevant forces acting on each and every object.
One of my favorite albums of 2015, Lardo's "GUNMETAL EYES" is also one of the best recordings I've found on Bandcamp. Great post-hardcore is hard to find (in my opinion), and GUNMETAL EYES is one of the greatest examples of the genre in the 2010s. Mandatory listening. Ian Lovdahl
