NEIL HALSTEAD – Paint A Face / 2008

Try to get the colors right
And I’ll paint your face, she said
‘Cause life is on the outside, babe
And you got to try and get it right

Buy a ten dollar camera
Take a picture of everyone
‘Cause people change
Yeah, they change
Yeah, they’re changing everyday

And I don’t want to be the one
That you don’t recognize
No, I don’t want to be the one
The one that’s left behind

Got a broken car
Yeah, got a selfish heart
Running down the road
With a jukebox in my head

Funny how I got to here
‘Cause I don’t remember how
I just want to live somewhere
Where the air is sweet and clear

And I don’t want to be the one
That you don’t recognize
No, I don’t want to be the one
The one that’s left behind
No, I don’t want to be the one
The one that’s left behind

I don’t want to be the one
That you don’t recognize
No, I don’t want to be the one
The one that’s left behind

No, I don’t want to be the one
That you don’t recognize
No, I don’t want to be the one
The one that’s left behind

Neil Halstead, a founding member of Slowdive and the singer/main songwriter of Mojave 3, is releasing his sophomore solo record oh, mighty engine at the end of July on Jack Johnson’s Brushfire Records (the solo debut was on 4AD). Pairing with Johnson may seem strange, but when you take a closer listen to Halstead’s gentle melodies and often naturalist lyrics, the overlap goes beyond both guys liking to surfing. For instance, “Paint A Face” from the forthcoming collection is akin to Kings of Convenience + Iron & Wine + Cornwall, England + a warm, slightly melancholic breeze.
