about

The desire to explore other creative processes and solidification of his live band led this collection of songs to be recorded mostly live to tape through fully analog technology at Tiny Telephone in San Francisco. Blending thawed-out '70s tones with sentiments of soul and echoes of modern indie guitar rock, Ferraro's piano and Rhodes provide nearly as much a presence on each track as his own falsetto.

Astronauts, etc.'s debut album, Mind Out Wandering, will be released Sept. 18 on Hit City U.S.A.

Track Name: If I Run
Something I recalled
It woke me up, and I got stuck
Repeating about you
I know I can be difficult
Meet me in the hall
And hook me up
With honest love
Whatever comes to you I know
I can be difficult
If I run right in that direction
If I run, who is gonna catch me?
I feel ten foot tall
And hopelessly aware that these
Are temporary spells
But some would call it therapy
Meet me in the hall
And all I ask Is that you catch whatever lands on you
I know I can be difficult
If I run right in that direction
If I run, who is gonna catch me?
If I run
Track Name: Place With You
I want to go that place with you
I need to go insane with you (Lost in a minute)
I sang the invitation
I hung on your reply, your verse (Shame if you wouldn’t)
Choose me to go into that place with you
As it was getting late, I said “I don’t know how I’m back again” (Lost in a minute)
But glancing at my side, I saw
A person in euphoria (Shame if you wouldn’t)
Choose me to go into that place with you
Choose me to go into that place with you
Track Name: No Justice
I was in love – didn’t matter
Forces at work beyond heart & soul
I want to bark, but the collar
I want to scream, but your self-control

It doesn’t add up, just a minute
I’ve never seen a scene quite like this
Don’t let the flame lick your belly
Its color is strange; it needs to be quenched

There’s no justice for the ones who are in love
There’s no justice, no

You need to breathe, we can beat it
Skip out of town and collect our heads
It will help to be reminded
That we don’t need what we can’t defend
Track Name: I Know
I see a silhouette inside
It’s got my mind out wandering
I want to take a walk by your side
And see what we’ve in common

After one more year, I’ll have grown into the wall
I know, you’re right
I ate something strange and I’m feeling very small
Just hold me tight

I try to keep my blinders on
We won’t be the exception
It takes a lot of gravity
To pull me in that direction
Track Name: Eye To Eye
All I want is reciprocation
I don’t care how you spend your nights
There’s no need for that conversation
As long as we see eye to eye
I’m tangled up in your hesitation
Thrown off by the space you keep
I’m all for a little recreation
So get out of the back of my mind

It doesn’t matter how thick I build it
You break through when I turn around
And I’m left to deal with the absence
I can’t help but be conscious of now
Can’t tell you I’m the weaker rival
I shouldn’t let my secret out
I’ll just hang on to your arrival
Isolate my love from my doubt

Do you know what I’m always thinking?
Which way would it sway your mind?
I don’t think that I want an answer
It’s enough to be let inside
Track Name: Shake It Loose
Get inside, into my house
I know that you’ve plenty left to figure out
But I am sure
Hesitation at the door
Don’t leave me with reservations on the floor
I need much more
Listen to my careful words
See through them, and signal to me that you heard
What I can’t say
Tangled up inside my head
I need to shake it loose, try to forget
Why you’re away
Track Name: Up For Grabs
I know that I'm a pain in the ass
But I heard that your heart is up for grabs
Your voice is like a special effect
I melt every time it tells me "that's what you get"
I see you in a carnival light
When's the last time we went on a teenage ride
A soft current has got hold of my hands
They can go anywhere if they move slow like glass
Take me don't leave me don't release me
Track Name: Control
I don’t care who you’re watching
I don’t want to know why you wander away from the edge of my vision Cause it’s all I can do just to keep from being bitten
One arm’s length is the measure
It helps me feel in control
I’ll deny that you’ve gotten as far as my shoulder
I am underprepared and unwilling moreover
Every time I find that I’m about to lie, and say “I don’t want to feel that”
I don’t need superstition
I’ve got artifacts of my own
That present enough mysteries,
I figure Like the one that prevents me welcome enclosure
Don’t get caught in my riddles
I can handle my end of the mazes that keep me from wandering further I’m more interested in how you’re fitted together
Every time I find that I’m about to lie, and say “I don’t want to feel that”
Track Name: See You
Go to sleep now, get out of your head
If I see it there, then I will take it to your bed
Go with me, go with someone who understands I was making peace with all your worries while you slept
I got in trouble when left alone
Because I didn’t see you
Because you were so far away
I was unstable, I was ashamed
I needed to feel you
I needed to see your face
Come on up, climb the rungs to where we can speak
It’s been several weeks since I’ve felt the ground beneath my feet I know that it can be difficult to hear me
But understand I’m listening, just tell me what you need I got in trouble when left alone
Because I didn’t see you
Because you were so far away I was unstable,
I was ashamed I needed to feel you I needed to see your face
Track Name: Upward Swing
What if she caught me on an upward swing?
How do I measure her effect on me?
What if I cycle back to crueler states
And wake to find I’m stuck on yesterday?
I’ll try to put away my misspent fears
I know they’re killing you
I know they just get in the way
I’ll try to tranquilize and keep it real
I’ve got misgivings, but you’re always asking me to stay
I spent the evening counting carefully
Trivial worries and I went to sleep
Oh hallelujah to her morning pose
What could there be in her that I can know?
