Polyphonic Spree performing cover of Nirvana's 'Lithium' 7/10/13 at Bowery Ballroom
To me it's part of the band's charm and magic. Especially since I also feel like I'm part of this big family. The Polyphonic Spree is a big family. Sure it was always my dream to actually be in the band and sing or play an instrument (which I can actually do) while donning a cool psychedelic robe. I can live vicariously through my audience experiences, since The Spree really try hard to make the audience part of the show, part of the band, part of the whole experience. Last night, Tim DeLaughter invited the whole top floor to come downstairs. Then we all sat down while he came out into the audience and sang to us. Yes, it's a family. And I'm glad to be part of the Polyphonic Spree phenomenon and kindred fanbase.
Their new album Yes, It's True is due out on August 6th. Reserve/buy your copy NOW!
The Polyphonic Spree (New Fumes Full Album Mashup)
It seems the time has gone away but all at once you knew your mission well.
You're civilized it seems soon to paralyze.
The thought became the mission of your life.
The best place is to find your home.
The coolest is to find your way.
The best place is to find your home in time til' when the fool becomes a king."
And knowing is a comfortable fight
And your wish is pretending to slightly move over the light
And you sigh at the rainbow
That's coming from the other side
And you slide with the message
This trouble seems to give me some life
You're hanging around the day
You're fooling yourself with blame
You're taking it all to a future sight
Hanging around the day."
