It’s the final instalment of Dial-A-Song, the 52nd of 52 new new TMBG songs and videos for 2015!! New albums Glean & Why? are out now! UK Tour dates coming up.

“Shape Shifter” video directed and animated by Jason Willis.

I’ve got a big old problem
shape shifters all around

where did my world go?
one minute everything is home and friends
and new york times and lawn
beware the blob they said
how was I to know they meant the
ups delivery man
the koi in the tank and the anchorwoman

I’ve got a big old problem
shape shifters all around

shape shifter shape shifter
you gotta quit that shifting of shapes
I accepted what you were and then everything changed
and I don’t want to live in any place where
the people are shifting their shapes

they’re such a liar
they said the planet wouldn’t
undulate and then burst into flames
what used to be my house?
is it that purple tentacle?
or is that the tv repairman?
the clarinet? the vegetable stand?

I’ve got a big old problem
shape shifters all around

shape shifter shape shifter
you gotta quit that shifting of shapes
I accepted what you were and then everything changed
and I don’t want to live in any place where
the people are shifting their shapes

I’ve got a big old problem
shape shifters all around

if you’re someone I used to know
I sure don’t recognize you
so I’m only hanging round amorphous mounds
in the town where nothing familiar can be found

I’ve got a big old problem
shape shifters all around

Dial-A-Song Week 42!. Get Glean, pre-order Why?!

This stuff is complex
Never figured out the part that comes next
I’m out of my depth
Everything I reach for is out of my grasp

And nothing comes next
You figured on a change or a rest
Well, that’s a good guess
Everything is shifting and shifting again

Something punched my mind in the face
Tracked me down under my pillow case
Now we’re alone in this freaky place
Our consciousness has been

This stuff is complex
Never figured out the part that comes next
I’m out of my depth
Everything I reach for is out of my grasp

There are forces out to destroy us
I heard whispers. It was a warning
They’ll knock us out and drag us to a forest
Yes, that’s what I’ve been told

TMBG’S Dial-A-Song week 40 brings us an alternate version of Black Ops, originally heard on Nanobots. The collage slideshow video dedicated to all dystopian modernists was compiled by the inimitable Rolf Conant.

Pre-order new album Why?!

black ops black ops
a holiday for secret cops
black ops black ops
dropping presents from the helicopter

it’s been a long year
we’ve been so far from home
too many people here
here come the drones
we take the best of it
and make a mess of it
ripping up some lawn
and then we’re gone

black sites black sites
a thousand miles from day or night
black sites black sites
the story will remain unwritten

before we make you gone
you’d best be running on
stick to the music, child
don’t get us riled
hey, there’s a spot we missed
I see a communist
and there’s another one
and his dumb son

black ops black ops
little vials filled with knock-out drops
black ops black ops
Maybe leave you in your old gym locker

black ops black ops
a thousand miles from day or night
black ops black ops
a story told before rewriting

hey, there’s a passport here
but it could disappear
tarmac to landing pad
don’t look so sad
we fly to Amsterdam
and in a little bit
we’ll sing our special song
and this is it

you’ll be standing when the music stops
we’re not worrying about the optics

PREMIERE: Taylor Locke – Call Me Kuchu

Purevolume have premiered the new video for “Call Me Kuchu”, from Taylor Locke’s album Time Stands Still.

Known as the former guitarist for L.A.-based indie rockers Rooney, Taylor Locke released a solo LP earlier this year. Titled Time Stands Still, Locke showcases a songwriting prowess that fans of his former band may not have realized. Today, we’re excited to premiere the latest video off that album. “Call Me Kuchu” is styled as an old fashioned movie, but don’t let the fun vibes fool you. The song’s serious tenor is played down by the imagery, which is something that Locke intended.

“The challenge was to respect the serious nature of the song, but without illustrating the lyrical content too literally,” Locke says of the video. “I wanted to walk the line between having fun, but also acknowledging the matter at hand. I hope people will be entertained and drawn in by the look of the video, but also take a close listen to whats going on under the surface.”

Watch the video here, get Time Stand’s Still on LP, CD or digital HERE.
