about

Cazadero plays the kind of darkly-tuned, beer-swilling cosmic-cana that isn't out of place on a playlist with genre gurus Bill Callahan, My Morning Jacket, and the late JJ Cale. No half measures here. They approach every song, gig and recording session as if it could be the last time, as if five friends could for a brief moment bottle the ocean and place shells on our ears.

Caz have released two albums in a year's time, both recorded at John Vanderlice's analog haven Tiny Telephone. Dusk for Dawn (2012) was included on TheBayBridged.com's "Best of 2012" list, hailed as "criminally under-the-radar" and "full of promises, dusty highways and old men drinking whiskey in saloons". Old Friends followed in the summer of 2013, emerging on regional radio, nearly topping KDVS 90.3FM's chart in Davis, CA. Popatunes.com dubbed the latter effort "a beautifully crafted album... slips effortlessly between country, blues, folk and jazz.".

Track Name: Black Ocean
Won't you stay for awhile?
The east winds are running wild
We'll make fools of our hopes
Make amends with the ghosts
And the placards for my soul
Will hang from below
the great inside...the great inside

The way those tides come to zenith
The blackest I've ever seen it
Weep at the sound of the slow horn
Wishing the time to be reborn

There's a dead man on the boat
Who will guide you to the moat
And the waters will rise
To wet you in the thighs
And you'll fasten the ropes
Just to keep your head afloat
The endless tide...the endless tide
Track Name: Holiday
Holiday....holiday
When will it come
Holiday
To break us down like bums
Holiday
Will it come

This house is made of endless stairs
Keeps the spirits running around the clock
We tell ourselves this is a great disguise
Looking past those big kid eyes

Some company...some company
That we keep
Some company
Just as flawed
As you and me
Track Name: Roads
Words by J.R.R. Tolkien

Roads / go ever ever on
Over rock / and under tree
By caves / where never sun has shone
By streams / that never find the sea

Over snow / by winter sown
And through the merry / flowers of June
Over grass / and over stone
And under / mountains of the moon

Eyes / that fire and sword have seen
And horror / in the halls of stone
Look at last / on meadows green
And the trees / and the hills / they have long known
Track Name: First Time
Let’s take the pass on the eastern side
Where the treeline clips it wide
Off the rails and in the ground
Sunk in, outside of town
Kicked a job or two around
For the price of wood in hand
Unplugged and eating sand
In Davenport with my old man

Maybe I’m lost for the first time
Won’t get crossed before I get mine

No turning back on these Western times
Where you set up in my mind
It’s a trade for a simpler life
Pages turn from day to night
You may got something to hid alright
But old news doesn’t travel fast
If it ain’t us, it’s just the past

Maybe I’m lost for the first time
Won’t get crossed before I get mine
Track Name: Ones I've Never Liked
Cautious gamblers at the height of their return
tip their glasses with the sacrificial burn
They come in droves with prescriptions for pain
reciting scripture for the ones that remain

Say a prayer tonight
Say a prayer for the first time in your life
Say a prayer for the ones I never liked
Say a prayer for the last time in my life

Junked up rascals on the high road to dawn
filling the air with their sacrificial pawns
Falling heavy on the curb like a bag of leaves
the weight of days must be some kind of disease

Say a prayer tonight
Say a prayer for the first time in your life
Track Name: Come Undone
If I decide, to replace
the time
that divides
the day from the night
I’ll come undone
at the first sign of light

Let’s go out to dead man’s cove
and it’s alright if you say no
cause on this night
I’ll play my own hand
and pull the kelp
from the cold sand

You’ve come undone like the tides
and you fight for me like I’m the prize
but when this ends
we’ll be the ground
and the songs we sing
will have no sound
Track Name: Still Life
I will turn you inside out
I will lose this bout
Your life is a still life
Your life is still

I will turn you inside out
I will lose this bout
Your life is a still life
Your life is still

Arrive at the place that you came from
Simple truths won't let you down
Holding fast, and going round
Nothing like a house without a town
And all that you got
is this hole in the ground
You got yourself a name
If they would only call you out

I will turn you inside out
Between the air of the slanted rain
And if there ever was any doubt
It dissipated over sunless plains
Track Name: We're Alright
You’re alright with your vices
You’re a surefire crisis
You’re in love with an idea
And it makes everything, so plain and clear

Yeah, it’s alright
We can name our own god
Cause in the next life
I sure as hell won’t try so hard

There’s a picture in my head
And I swear you were passing
In a cryptic sleight of face
You knew it’d be the last one

Yeah, it’s alright
We can name our own god
Cause in the next life
I sure as hell won’t try so hard
