about

Blisses B, rooted firmly in the city that embraces music in all forms imaginable, introduces another compilation of genre-crashing rock and psychadelia with their second full-length album, Thirty Days, Sixty Years. Debuted on Nov. 13, 2010, the album was recorded, produced, and engineered entirely by the San Francisco-based quartet.Thirty Days, Sixty Years explores the mathematical parameters that define our lives -- weekends, vacations, adolescence, adulthood, the reality of how much time we have left on this earth -- and the personal equations that result from the many caveats that can extend and shorten most of these time frames. Are we spending our time wisely, with the right people, and in the right place? What are we giving back?

“... 11 glistening ditties — heavy with none-too-subtle Afropop influences, strong doses of Paul Simonism, and snippets of Cat Stevensy folk…”
-- SF Weekly

Track Name: Regal Goodbyes
Blisses B - Regal Goodbyes

I’m on people
Decide these regal goodbyes
Beforehand
Don’t dye on your tan.

I could never say it alone like it was before
If it’s all the same then it’s yours on an open door
Everybody else was in love like you should know
Let’s just try it on you and me alone

Why try feeble
Ignite that ego
We’re armed with past plans
They end in bed pans

I could never say it alone like it was before
If it’s all the same then it’s yours on an open door
Everybody else was in love like you should know
Let’s just try it on you and me alone

I’m on people
Divide these sequels
You lied beforehand
Don’t dye on your tan

I could never say it alone like it was before
If it’s all the same then it’s yours on an open door
Everybody else was in love like you should know
Let’s just try it on you and me alone
Track Name: Your Own Growl
Blisses B - Your Own Growl

When everybody’s home
We can sing songs
Dare to repeat ourselves
From doing wrong
If you are alone
Always on the phone
Charge another rate
End up gold

That ain’t less of me
Though I would like to steer you wrong
When it’s time to be
Will I see you less
This time right here is another try
That ain’t me as another guy

When we all grow old
Just heart and a lung
How will we see ourselves in song
Why not divide
Your foolish pride
Find a sense of being
Two feet to ride

That ain’t less of me
Though I would like to steer you wrong
When it’s time to be
Will I see you less
This time right here is another try
That ain’t me as another guy

All that you know
It ain’t your own
Make up your own growl
Let go, but please let me know
Just how to sound now
Dig deep and dredge
My heart, well it ain’t my own
I just know the pattern
The beat is aloof and grown

When everybody’s home
We can sing songs
Dare to repeat ourselves
From doing wrong
If you are alone
Always on the phone
Charge another rate
End up gold

That ain’t less of me
Though I would like to steer you wrong
When it’s time to be
Will I see you less
This time right here is another try
That ain’t me as another guy
Track Name: Thirty Days, Sixty Years
Blisses B - Thirty Days, Sixty Years

I wasn’t around for the back turn
I couldn’t divide it like a brand new year
If we’re all home living off the right verb
Could you devise it like an open fear?

I couldn’t decide on the right terms
If you sign it won’t you dot that “I”
Now we’re all forced on the back burn
Could you drop it like a cosmic tear

This is me on the reel
Get the gaff and set the steel
Against the boat the waves peel
This deck ending ordeal

I couldn’t decide on the right phase
Won’t you push it like an unhinged door
Now I’m back home growing all the right grapes
But will they be crushed under my own heel?

This is me on the reel
Get the gaff and set the steel
Against the boat the waves peel
This deck ending ordeal
Track Name: Valley Low
Blisses B - Valley Low

When my heart is sinking
Deeper than the valley low
Seems like all this here drinking
Has become a little apropos
When your light is blinking
Leaving me an amber glow
Seems like I should sit there thinking
How does your garden grow?

I’m on time most of my days
Lets all try for the golden way
If we try can we call that praise
When loves defined, we will have our say

When you’re love of people
Has left you in an undertow
You try to swim forwards and backwords
When left and rights the way to go
When I’ve seen this by in
Old and new separate ways
When we all meet in the middle
Your heart will be open faced

I’m on time most of my days
Lets all try for the golden way
If we try can we call that praise
When loves defined, we will have our say

When my heart is sinking
Deeper than the valley low
Seems like all this here drinking
Has become a little apropos
When your light is blinking
Leaving me an amber glow
Seems like I should sit there thinking
How does your garden grow?

I’m on time most of my days
Lets all try for the golden way
If we try can we call that praise
When loves defined, we will have our say

When loves defined, we will have our say
Track Name: Fine And Dandy
Blisses B - Fine And Dandy

Though I’ve heard it less
Let’s decide on the means
To change your outside world
Into a shade of evergreen
Where Theodore Geisel
Had hopes for thoughts and dreams
Where every brand new pine
Finds a stream

If you’re around me now
And I decree
That life is a harbored cry
When we were child like
You turned three
You cut ties of cherub wings

With an arrow to the bow
Couldn’t be a braeburns dream
But leaving that aside is as hard
As a teapot steams
Your jealous ways aside
To fight alluring teams
of middle aged buffoons and greed

If you’re around me now
And I decree
That life is a harbored cry
When we were child like
You turned three
You cut ties of cherub wings

What were we saying
How is that related
How is that fine and dandy
Life worth repeating
Timing your meanings
I can’t keep up with that pace
You and your obliging
Leaving us blinded
Now we’re all lying sideways

What were we saying
How is that related
How is that fine and dandy
Life worth repeating
Timing your meanings
I can’t keep up with that pace
What were we saying
How is that related
How is that fine and dandy
Track Name: Cattywompus
Blisses B - Cattywompus

If I ever get back home
To a two-tone
Two bit group home
Downstairs from landlord
Who’s own goals
Ain’t up to the code
A few blocks from an old flame
Who’s right brained
And won’t make the change
A few more from the burnouts
The Dead house
And all them lab mouse

Everybody was right there
Ten blocks square
We chose truth over dare
We’d sit on blanks with pinecones
Wine totes and stare at the ozone
With no shoes and no socks on
A swan song and a shallow mock pond
We would chase the dogs on
To the right lawn
To defend the Lyon

If I ever get back home
To a two-tone
Two bit group home
Downstairs from landlord
Who’s own goals
Ain’t up to the code
A few blocks from an old flame
Who’s right brained
And won’t make the change
A few more from the burnouts
The Dead house
And all them lab mouse
Track Name: Yesteryear
Blisses B – Yesteryear

This is me so I should write it down
Two times or less and it would make a sound
If I knew you in a yesteryear
I’d wrap my heart around and let you steer

Hearts
Minds
Yours
Divide another
Year
Cuz I am
Much more now
If I could tell you less in a just another year
Like it’s wrong
If I could fight it all in just another way
Let’s be strong

Set the route and a steady pace
Extend it slowly like a lofty gaze
When we wrote down each other’s fears
You used pencil and left a bunny ear

Hearts
Minds
Yours
Divide another
Year
Cuz I am
Much more now
If I could tell you less in a just another year
Like it’s wrong
If I could fight it all in just another way
Let’s be strong

I wasn’t fighting the lion
When we’re dividing the science
This is me beforehand the client
How can define less or be pious

This is me so I should write it down
Two times or less and it would make a sound
If I knew you in a yesteryear
I’d wrap my heart around and let you steer

Hearts
Minds
Yours
Divide another
Year
Cuz I am
Much more now
If I could tell you less in a just another year
Like it’s wrong
If I could fight it all in just another way
Let’s be strong
Track Name: I Was Around
Blisses B – I Was Around

I was around when they let her know
You would divide and crumble your pride
If you were here and you made it known
Would you devise a plan to imbibe
That’s for sure and it ain’t much more
I’ll do fine, right back on the dime

The places were set and the meal was served
You were on time and fumbling lines
Admonish the fact that it’s well deserved
Thoughts were obliged but limiting crimes
That’s for sure and it ain’t much more
I’ll do fine, back on the dime

This is me in another year
Feathers plucked and you knew my peers
Please rely on the fact you’re on
It’s the last one before your wrong
Ring a bell to invite the jeers
Bang a gong and release that spear
I’ve old you in plain text before
Life is spent on the waking bores
Track Name: Spirit
Blisses B - Spirit

When everyone else was alone
They took all their time and wrote it in rhymes
Now divide that by two on the phone
I couldn’t hear it or move on the spirit
Think if we packed up and moved
To pick up the pieces in other new regions
Now it’s something to prove
I’m not gonna fear it or move on the spirit

In all of the love you have loaned
By paying in full or residing in rural
Is this your year to bemoan
And what of the spirit and movable pulpit
Let’s leave this in terms we can use
Like Ebenezer or Julius Caesar
Were they told of those who peruse
Like terrible Brutus or ghosts in a plot twist

Your tomb
More in the backroom
Supplied new truths
Was masked with perfume
Canary
Yellow as plain day
The line you use
Proficient as time saved

Future plans will remain
With the thought of a refuge and forensic plot clues
I couldn’t see through the pane
The bended refraction of your arms sun singed
What of you being razed
Components and plans burned and more of these left turns
Tongue and groove wouldn’t stay
I found ashes, south of Muir woods

Your tomb
More in the backroom
Supplied new truths
Was masked with perfume
Canary
Yellow as plain day
The line you use
Proficient as time saved
Track Name: Decimal Point
Blisses B - Decimal Point

I’ve been picking up time writing these lines
But if you never really see it as a goal
In the background of new sound
I could never tell you as a lie
That it’s much more than the decimal
I ain’t relying on me
If its hell bent and heaven sent
Then why not define it as a soul
Or much more than the story told

I’m picking up time writing these lines
But if you share it only as a story told
Or a fable, lost on those
Who came to see but never imposed
Their true thoughts are movie plots
Why not see it as a fold
But the tear holds a better goal
One that sees you in the sun
With grass green and halo beams
Still I’m picking up time writing these lines

Like I’ve know this time
That in a little while
Like my heart explodes
I could let you know
I could stay well, another brand new day back to me again

I’m in the background of a new sound
If I ever tell you two times
The repeat facts of an open tact
Please don’t see it as a toll
It’s heart felt and timely dealt
I never meant to leave it in a song
In due time we all will climb
Still I’m picking up time writing these lines

Like I’ve know this time
That in a little while
Like my heart explodes
I could let you know
I could stay well, another brand new day back to me again
Track Name: IWHBYWW
Blisses B - IWHBYWW

When we’ve found ill reprieve
And it’s that much more knocking on your door
I was never really home but that’s not the look of new stones
You could never really find a picture of your heart shot in due time

Back on this here timing of bells
Waters sinking deep in the well
Do you know, oh do tell
I Was Home Before You Were Wrong
Now we all see this concern and cause for alarm

I’ve sighed three thousand times
Your arms provide a stronger tide
Paddling to shore I’m freed by the second of two oars
Things I never see
Won’t you subjugate a new need

Back on this here timing of bells
Waters sinking deep in the well
Do you know, oh do tell
I Was Home Before You Were Wrong
Now we all see this concern and cause for alarm

So if your back home
Singing all the songs that you know
Won’t you try your hands digging in the earthen clay
There is a proverb
Capturing all your big words
I wrote it down and sent it as a paper plane

Back on this here timing of bells
Waters sinking deep in the well
Do you know, oh do tell
I Was Home Before You Were Wrong
Now we all see this concern and cause for alarm
