BASWOD - that's the Hamburg-based Austrian artist and multi instrumentalist Dominik Linder whose wonderfully quiet atmospheric music invites you to dream yourself away for just a few moments. Sensitive folk meets handmade indie pop. Linders music offers a multi-faceted, melancholic and introspective way of coming to terms with the past, finding identity and dealing with the future. The recordings of piano, guitar, bass, banjo, drums, cello but also tables, bottles and wooden floors are forming the songs tone by tone. The sound of BASWOD manages to express great feelings without big gestures.
Lyrics:So you moved down to the sea Long nights, cold arms, freezing teeth Until its over Ill stay put You cant be sure about what you like or not When after seconds youll re-decide So you move like ultrasound Far too fast and far too loud Cold and restless nights I cant see what all this is about When you talk like ultrasound And you think I hear you So you move like ultrasound Far too fast and far too loud
Lyrics:And youre stumbling while you move to slow towards me I begin to talk while we sync each others feet And I try to grasp the moments of our lives Your skin pale blue your lips shake like crazy Oh I cant move my fingers across your lips The notches of your faded hopes I try to soak up all the moments you give me now And you know that we would explode if wed got it all I remember when you first showed me around And I try to grasp the moments of our lives Your skin pale blue your lips shake like crazy Oh I cant move my fingers across your lips The notches of your faded hopes
Lyrics:Cope hard to breath and not fall down Youll find me away from all this slants Save, Sound crumbled up in my mind I wont believe this I cant get out of my Circle of agreements That spin inside I made them up now tear them down Sounds easier then it is If two more months Ill give myself Im sure theyll still exist
Lyrics:Ill prance on the line Giddy, drunk and weak-kneed I Got hit hard by your lines That Ill always keep in mind I stored them right inside Sing now And I won't tell anyone It hits me like a storm I guess whats wrong can be ignored Without a single song Left to share I stand alone Ill try to hunt you down No chance of finding anyone
Lyrics:And you shout to the wall I just say call it off But you can't deny that all you ever tried It went wrong All I got left for you was ignored Oh you walk But you can't deny that all you ever tried
Lyrics:Pull the inside out and you will see it now right there you'll see that I am damaged now Nineteen years have left their prints and I have left some things that I can't find now All there is doesn't even feel like home anymore Look, look that's were our dad used to take us when I still was out but I can't feel it now although I try so hard I can't feel it like before
Lyrics:Fall around get drunk get drowned Call them out the lights will shivery bounce Walk the memory lane tonight Sit around get lost get found Shut things down get stuck get drowned Walk the memory lane tonight Through kaleidoscopes I'll find what is yours and what is mine
Lyrics:I ask you to plant the love you observed along the way And you cover the lights with old blankets from my tree house in the woods I got knocked out again got some wine and new friends feels like aloofness But I know every time I get home it feels like I'm a stranger agai. I ask you to plant the love you observed along the way.
Lyrics:You're one my side at least for tonight And you own my heart for the rest of your live And your greedy face and your stumbled lies And your passion is lost at least for tonight You own my life at least for tonight And you're on my side for the rest of your live And your greedy face and your stumbled lies And your passion is lost at least for tonight
Lyrics:We saw each other far to short Bouncing in the dark Far to long I wished for Not to be alone Holding on my moving thoughts Try to catch them while I pass I call you on the landline phone Hours of telling you about What I did the last few weeks I cant think about it now Youve been tied up in your head With something more important
Lyrics:All you knew was solid shit Youre backing up on me You get in the water And mess around with me You fuck around with me Crawling from underneath Shouting out you never miss your sleep Shouting out you never miss your sleep But seriously you need some honest opinions While you creep around the house and hope to find yourself around
Lyrics:You can hope for better but you cant deny You can change your hallways but you cant change mine And now all that I can think of is your grandpas little hide Where we stole our first pack cigarettes and that smoked it up that night We run until our hearts collapsed we run until we died For the same old muddy reasons for the same old useless lies You got all you sink with me while move in the cold All that weve been hiding from is vanishing now And you move on far too soon Cope with all your little things but youll never know
Lyrics:In our house cold hearted we moved each other out Through the night with watery eyes and shaky lips but now Oh Im moving all my shit I dont give a damn about But it stuck with me for all this time so far so I hang on And you knew it all before You said you knew it all along But Im here with you so you cant predict the future after all So you cant predict anything after all And the kids began to see it Far before we even knew it And now we own each others lives - they knew it When they come home at least we can peruse it
Lyrics:And soon youll know How long youre in town Ill show you around Along with Sufjan Songs Sneaking all around Listing through the sounds Almost blind but I keep on staring up Right into the spot Its comfortable without you following right up
Lyrics:Call you in the suburbs That Im not in I know that youll be fine You get in the mood of Just being on your own The senses will shut down And while I Slowly turn my back on The streets that I dont find I just think of somewhere else but On the beach I move fast Until that I collide With some parking cars inside Now that Ive been told that Where I am is off So far that I might not Get there were Im supposed to Be before the sun Blinks of I guess Ill have To call again
Lyrics:Did you know youre better off Without colored arms, colored toes, warped mouth I saw it sparkling for a sec, right in your eyes It all washed out when you remembered last night You will fold until youre on your own You will fold until the rest of you is gone
Lyrics:And you soak up the moon while youre stuck here No comeback no mystery loops while youre in there So why didnt you move while you had the chance? Oh why didnt you do something relevant? And soon you will realize why you started it all over All the flickering lights all the running backs the running backs I owe you And I thinks its worth something more than I realize at the moment Oh I think its worth something more than I realize at this moment
Lyrics:It was so hard reaching out Through the mud through all the fields around To the spot where were about To be after we turned a million times around And Youre so good at wrecking all I have And Im so good at knowing what I am What I am not What I am not What I am I am not
Lyrics:Of all the useless things Ive got, I love yours the most The walls they spit it all out, youve overfeed them too And do I really need to understand the water before I can get in?
Lyrics:And you take in the night Take your guide by the sky I cant tell what you see You cant tell what you mean We got home with the lights Got the full range of sight Much too seriously We think of perspectives And you cover your eyes Take your hands into mine I cant tell what you see You can't tell what you mean And we come down from all this pretty lights I am frozen down to every bone But thats alright because you tell me what we once were And we sit there while the sun shines through our little spines Totally calm Senses pulled down Hands on our thighs We still think about That once well be gone Once well be left Nobody will Know about us
Lyrics:With the eyes on the glow we burn it down we burn it all And all that's left mirrors and smoke And at the edge of the town We got it all we got it now And all we want is to get away save and sound from all that's left in this grey town And all this moves that we make they lead us back were we came right were we came from
Lyrics:There are so many streets that weve been in But it seems to me Im used to just walk on On three of them, I hold them in my mind While I count the star, I can walk with closed eyes No bumps no lights, not anything I might not recognize
Lyrics:Still on the run with no reasons why. Im still confused about those colored lights. And while we drive the music is still on. Here first name is our favorite song. Clementine is what we sing out loud. Clementine we scream it from our lungs. The fog is still down I never saw such a blackish night. The clock is still on while we arrive. You park the car while I watch to the sky. Our motel room is covered in bright lights.
Lyrics:Youve got your glimpse on the tongue Focusing while youre gone Just out the room out of here Well I dont count How long its been, five years? Maybe even more, who cares? The clock is seeking the pause your in And counterclockwise Your spinning till you fall in my arms You fall in my arms
Lyrics:So you moan out loud While you ponder on The things that we could not Figure out before Sleep crawled in our bones And even now We sometimes still doze of I just tried to wake you up While our favorite bands get on (To the sinners to them all) We moved so fast But I think were just to slow To be in time (To The dreamers to them all) So I just head back To fall in my sleepy head So I, so I can be alone So I can be alone I can be alone, alone So you might think that I misspelled Your name But actually I tried Just to say The things I have in mind
Lyrics:And on your tongue There is something that youve wanted to ask So go come forward Youll be just fine I recall the look on your eyes You multiplied the things that you deny You want to move on to Parking lots were youll stabilize Your moods got better now youve realized That to change your perspectives Will not be of any use in this case
Lyrics:And so it all began with a broken toe and a huge amount off lost emotions Far too many loads of all this crap that you have sad in all the past two years. So come an colour me with this beauty green and up there could be a little red. Oh don't Oh don't follow me to the water were you'll see all this colour will just burst right of me. So get back were you come from with that tear whipped right from your cheek and think of all that black beyond.
Lyrics:Serenades through the woods I kind of hate all these motionless nights I collide with the fear in your eyes And all this nights you count the trees Fall asleep right after me Glimmer, shades and smoke is what they'll see
Lyrics:The window still tells The stories that weve seen A million times the same Its lower corner side Is were you will still feel Our breaths condensed to lives Dream me out of this town Cold stones far off the shore You left it all for me You left it all for me Glowing thoughts Out of reach Silver lines I still peak Out the room On the street Weve had our time Build on cold lies
Lyrics:Cover all your secrets before I get in Show me all your flawless coverings And I know beneath is something more Come here all your sparkling gets lost Once were all way in it you fall And I know beneath is still something more And I know I want things to be like before
Lyrics:Crawl down the shoreline once again And all you'll find will be some scattered bones All your hope all your hope Once forgotten and once ignored I got lost in your anecdotes again I got pushed and dragged all along Tried to figure our how it'll come Oh i failed I just failed I can't get out of here And nine years from now Just give me one last wish All your hope all your hope Once forgotten and once ignored I got lost in your anecdotes again I got pushed and dragged all along Tried to figure our how it'll come Oh i failed I just failed I can't get out of here
Lyrics:Transverse on the floor Pale and reassured I talk about how I How I felt before (On that rotten bench when) I tried to get things out Tried to lay them down (But I would like to leave now) Lean your back on mine I hold you till it's dark Come on into light I call the peaking lights Follow your mindless minds And all I want is gone now
