about

Eux Autres San Francisco, California

Eux Autres write smart, brassy music that makes you feel as if you’re simultaneously cartwheeling down a beach, singing by the fire in a mountain cabin, blowing out the candles on a cake, and taking a phone call from Barry Gibb. The band sound like the unrequited love song Doug Martsch would have penned for Francoise Hardy, had the time/space continuum conveniently collapsed. ... more

Track Name: Right Again
keep it number one
I’ll be waiting when they break your
keep it number one
I’ll be waiting when they break your heart again
your heart again

smack it like a drum
roll it backwards
break it into pieces
smack it like a drum
punch it up and
burn it out forever

better even yet
rent a doctor
call a secretary

better even yet
get a record
get a reason right again

when you're out winning cases
don’t forget to check your laces
someday
you’re tripping on your best intentions

keep it number one
I’ll be watching
I’ll be at the ready
keep it number one
I’ll be waiting
when they break your heart
yeah
your heart again
Track Name: Broken Record
sky stretched out tight
out of the way
out at night
even sticks and stones
patient lines
bottled bones
try and give it time alone

call me up tomorrow
I will have some more
wait until the morning
then you'll know the score
it's a broken record all this fumbling at the door
call me up tomorrow
another way to try to get better

try, give it time
sealed in place
stuck in line
we could burn it clean
catch a fire
but your face keeps your secrets right
at home
Track Name: Call It Off
call it off, I’m calling out for you
do not commit to memory
and it’s much too far to go alone.
Track Name: Home Tonight
well they tell me there’s a hundred ways to fight
but I only need a few of them tonight
‘cause there’s no way to prove
if what’s killing me’s got the best of you
and my speculation’s sputtering again

plenty reason I should turn the other way
but the reasoning is wearing thin today
I confess that I hate
nothing quite so much as an empty slate
and I‘m running out of time to run along

I’m not coming home tonight
Im not coming home tonight
til I can’t remember what was wrong with me

well they tell me there’s a hundred ways to fight
and I’m hoping not to use them all tonight
‘cause there’s no way to prove
if what’s killing me’s got the best of you
and my speculation’s sputtering again

when you’re looking hard enough,
all the edges frayed and rough,
nothing much to recommend leaves you empty
so I’m not coming home tonight
I’m not coming home tonight
til I can’t remember what was wrong with me

‘Cause there’s no way to prove
when you win, then you lose
and there’s no--
Track Name: Down Your Street
up on that horse I sit so high
oh, the world slips on by
Wendy, we ride it
ride it, you and I

late, through the last entrance of night
on this occasion it’s all right
my mother calls us
calls us
into sight

trees, stripped of leaves, the branches reach
cross the red bricks and concrete
summer it echoes
echoes down your street
Track Name: Ring Out
ring out about no place in mind
sun is sunk, the moon is mending
begin again, the echo’s ending rolls on

and when you’re picking up the change
you see it ain’t so strange

around and down the site and skirt the edge
don’t laugh now, those days are done for
all right, all wrong, all when, all won, for nothing

the street, the end of all those days, the light
my own way out, the woods behind
the air is dense enough to bind, it’s something
