Alan Benard fucking bliss rewards repeated, close listening. A suite of songs best heard in order, without distractions. Sam Ray filters out out the pop-punk casual fans from his audience with abrasive sounds and intricately layered composition. Everyone else can enjoy the melodies woven within. Favorite track: dragged around the lawn.

‘The way in which you quit it rewrote the story of your life in a negative form. Those who knew you reread each of your acts in the light of your last. Henceforth, the shadow of this tall black tree hides the forest that was your life. When you are spoken of, it begins with recounting your death, before going back to explain it. Isn’t it peculiar how this final gesture inverts your biography?”
From ‘Suicide’ by Edouard Levé, translated by Jan Steyn

Track Name: the miserable vision
every year on the same day
they’ve declared it a holiday
let’s light some trees on fire
in love with the miserable vision
i need your cum in my life
i love you like heaven
your taste sets me on fire
in love with the miserable vision
Track Name: what kind of love?
oh, is it love
that made me hide my addiction from you
for two or three years at a time?
would it have made you cry?
oh, is it love?
you’ll never know all the things i’ve done for you
what i’ve given up, what i’ve let go
i don’t know that i trust my own mind
god knows it’s made me cry
what kind of love?
Track Name: hello grace
so what’s the big deal
if i want to put some love into myself?
no one has to know
violence of the flesh, half a bag of dope
here’s my choir
they will sing how i want
sing now, sing now
raise your voice or don’t

what if there’s no heaven?
that would be just fine
there’s a lot of things
i’d like to leave behind in this life
Track Name: it's everything to me
watching you push off
in the bathroom, on the sink
it’s all i ever want
it’s everything to me
cold, cold water
romantic bliss
Track Name: ban this book
i comb my hair
red light at night
the car’s coming
headlights through the rain
fucking bliss
ban this book
the car comes along
no more beauty
no more song
ban this book
i comb my hair
red light at night
Track Name: let it go out
in my little world
even the flowers are metal
death does not come graceful
what if faith can not save me?
please let me down
let it go out
train in, train out
Track Name: dragged around the lawn
i’m dragging stars in my jaw
the melancholy song
put the movie on
headlights through the fog
in love with the sound of your voice
here comes the fucking bliss
call me on the phone
i’m waiting here alone
the melancholy song
dragged around the lawn
i’m dragging dead stars in my jaw
the melancholy song
Track Name: faith
so what is faith to you
and is it true?
just by saying the word
and calling your name
i’m here with you
