How We Lost California

from Player Piano by Building Rockets



California broke away and into the sea it withdrew; over sandbars and ancient currents, and before long you were gone. When the revenant cried, it was long and low. We ran to the shore to catch you, but our thrashing limbs would fail. Our arms were not long enough to hold the Republic before it slipped away. When the revenant spoke, it was long and low.

Building Rockets Austin, Texas

Building Rockets is occasionally a band and occasionally a bedroom recording project.

It sounds a little like The Pixies and Wilco covering Fountains of Wayne songs while “Abbey Road” plays in the background.
