Posts Tagged ‘Digital Moon’

Salon de la Guerre’s 27th album, Digital Moon, is now available on Amazon, Spotify, iTunes, Pandora, and other sites where music is streamed or sold. The new album is mostly punk and alternative rock influenced by the likes of the Ramones, Husker Du, the Replacements and the Pixies.

As I say on my Bandcamp page, it’s a work on the themes of politics, futurism, environmentalism, the desire for outer space and how we’re also still chained to more worldly human desire. The album considers the ramifications of the plastic that we are shedding into our breathable air, the spirituality that is either gained or lost by our automobiles, the desire to orbit the Earth and the yearning for things such as robots and Real Dolls that sometimes free us to live to our spiritual potential and sometimes hold us back.

I made the album at my home studio in New York, and it features instrumental guitar performances alongside a lot of electronic tomfoolery.

As always, the album was written, performed and produced by yours truly.

Here’s a sample of the latest album:

From the forthcoming album “Digital Moon,” a new song by Salon de la Guerre.

They ripped up the road that takes you downtown
Some joker cut the phone line out
I don’t know my spit cup from my drink cup
And we just dump the trash all down the mountain

Kids that were raised good turn bad from boredom
Got to shoot at the squatters cross the way
My watermelon grew the size of thimbles
And I’m feeling like a failure every day.

Pavement’s coming
Any day now
Water well is
Drying out
Pavement’s coming
Any day now
We’ll just have to figure it out

You were out there pissing on pool tables
Someone’s going to ruin all the felt
You were vandalizing motorcycles
And whoever smells is the ones that dealt

There’s nothing I can do but steal ammonia
And sell it to someone with chemistry
You can’t remain alone out in the boonies
Your sanity gets lost out in the trees

Pavement’s coming
Any day now
Water well is
Drying out
Pavement’s coming
We’ll see soon
Water well will dig us out

“No Robot Three-Way”
By Salon de la Guerre

I don’t want robot cluster love
It would make me feel blue
If she looked like you

And I saw that robot undressed in the hall
You bought a Real Doll
Something six feet tall

Is this how you think we can communicate now?
Cause you don’t want to hear
How I cry in my beer?

I don’t want your robot arrangement
Trio trio
I don’t want to take your girlfriend
To Rio Rio

You said we should be trying other things
But I’m just another beau
You aim to outgrow

And why you gotta toy with me with a toy?
Cause you’re gonna replace me
with another boy!

Latex skin and a couple of holes
I feel lonelier with you
than I do alone

I don’t want your robot arrangement
Trio trio
I don’t want to take your girlfriend
To Rio Rio

Green sea was all around us
Don’t want no ménage
I’m going to put that Real Doll, baby
Back in the garage

No personal three-way ad’s going to replace
The first time that we kissed
And you held my face

So stuff your wild and sexy robot dream
May your fantasies be cream
And your life be what it seems

But I do not want with that kinky stuff
It’s good enough that you said
That I’m not enough.
