Tezcatlipōca was recorded with Steve Albini in a converted warehouse space in Berlin.
Or so that's what you sort of want to have had happened perhaps. But to be honest....It was recorded with Steve Albini in a converted warehouse space in Berlin.
No I'm pulling your arm. ha ha ha.
Yeah so, I can't remember when exactly in 2010 but I recall it being quite early on in the year, we holed ourselves up with Steve Albini, sleeping in a converted warehouse for a week in Berlin to record the three songs you can hear above and another called 'De²'.
No...really?

All songs written and performed using variations of the major diatonic and blues scales being stirred through with lots of mixo-lydian modes.

Track Name: Arbor
Three masters left the Earth their minds
Inscribed a time device
All the people had to do
Was read the words before they slept

It never could be easier than that...

Learn Ratchet's sums
And construct
Arbor's words
For your child will believe in experience!
Bezel, What's that in your hand?
A skull?
Or the thoughts of a man who knows.
Who knows?
-------------------------------------------------------------
So they left...So they left and sold our dreams
To the moon...for a piece of future history

Spin the cogs of a clock [set loose], our hands dig deep
translating a verse, we solved their mystery
-------------------------------------------------------------
Little did they know we'd cracked their
Codes of time inscriptions,
Soon all three devices will
compound to form allianced life!
-------------------------------------------------------------
And so they left [so they left], so they left
and solved our peace
With the three [bricks of dreams] we can build
a future history

And so they left [so they left], so they left
and solved our dreams
With the three [bricks of dreams] we can build
a future you and me
Track Name: Ratchet
One night the moons glare
attracted
the attentive Arbor's
sight
three forms leave earth for
adventure
kick back and harvest
their own style
-----------------------------------------------------------
one dreams of land free
restrictions
time-lines erased for
humans
what joy for all free
to cradle
before they took leave
the king set a task
-----------------------------------------------------------
take the pictures, start over
life
seperate the order
stripping heartbeats from a tick-tock-knife
seperate the order
-----------------------------------------------------------
strip the tick-tocks of heartbeat
life
feed constraints in order
trigger pictures start over, why?
Sweep away exposures
leave inscriptions on the hows and whys of time control
our light-bulbs burn a secret tone
myths of history simmer home
hide the codes and fly to be kings
here
build ourselves a new year
Track Name: Bazel
Set the Earth
Ablaze with free
Perforated skylines in-between

Trails of age
Glide through
Unseen
Our superman won’t fly here anymore
----------------------------------------------------------
Eradicate a left to right sense
To tell the east from the west
To seek a borderless Queen
munter hich le
Inscript sur les tablettes du temp
Strapped within a coil of heartbeat sums
Calculated
Blueprints for the symbolized ‘one’
----------------------------------------------------------
Arbor, Ratchet and Bazel broke free
from the myths found
in a tapestry of history
Everybody’s saving time
You’ll see
master query
Where are your minds?
----------------------------------------------------------
---lunar sea expands
---lunacy is
---lunar
---sea is man

---lunacy in man

---see a sequence?
----------------------------------------------------------
signal bleeps
absent chimes
lunar code
vacant smile
All three sing
wondering
stroking chins
memory

flags are flown
by the queen
combine her signs
of lunar kings
a line of time
for you and me
deciphering
asymmetry

what it means
with clarity
desire flies
a tapestry
a flag for three
a wave for peace
eventually
a reasoning

an absent mind
in absent dreams
Why?

----------------------------------------------------------
Over,
[Contemplate] cratered ridges
Left [the] pondering
What’s there to solve here?
And who is me [are they]?
The glare is fading
a hunger sprung
for new adventures
without a sun
our mother tongue flicks
in search for words
a flashlight victim
a verse in curse
solute our problems
dig for a sign
answer in questions
for all is why?
a fall for lovers
for all is why?

a former lover
united eyes
a fall for lovers
for all is why
