about

The Earthly Frames Maryland

Gabriel Walsh plays experimental rock music as The Earthly Frames. Walsh's earlier recording project was called Your Team Ring and he released music under this moniker from 1995-2005.
With the Earthly Frames, the high-concept, psychedelia has carried over from Your Team Ring but the lo-fi, whimsical folk have given way to synths and loops.

Track Name: Dead Edit
When the playback won’t synch in, you think you’ve gone between the frames to the bottom of the bin.
And the shots from the short ends, you’ve screened them ten times before, but why not try again?
This is how you begin to see: Time when folded over groans, it begs to let it be.

They’re right behind you.
You strain to hear their notes. You cut to set them free.
How they’ve assigned you
Hurry up and execute! Split the reels, reconstitute.

Now how long have they been there? You reverse the reels within your mind and note the empty chair.

As the leader roles off the core, they are pleased with your work, they ask you back for more.
Track Name: Pike
The sunlight plays the wrecking ball to the timeline.
Was it last rites or only shades confirmed?

I know now what I seek to see,
tripping, trapped along the long wadi
Right now I see you crawl from the Dead Sea.
So you tell me if this be heresy

My son, my son, my holy ghost.
The moonlight sands, our only host.
Track Name: Good as Gold
And are we still awake?
There are things I have to say.
Been thinking what’s at stake.

Hear me and decide, then we’ll say that at least we tried.
I don’t know how we hide, look out the window, you can’t deny
As this house settles into stone, it’s like a soldier whose coming home.
I don’t know if it will stand ’til were old, that’s when you say ‘We’re good as gold.’

For years every step outside seemed a trap, every telephone ring - a chance to snap.
But I hope you know, you’re my way back.

And of course you’re so very right, for you to question my second sight.
What good is just to see only misstep and misery?
Track Name: Reach
The sails subside.
The witness deny the wreaths he lays in.
The counting.
The carrying.
The blessings of tin.
The circling crow.
The idle foe, the lanes they stay in.
The self-contained.
The brief distain for the places we’ve been.
The heckling dove.
The Easter shove.
You’ve reached back again.
The cresting wave.
The lost arcade.
You’ve reached back again.
The lesson lost.
The evening frost.
The phantom’s last limb.
The sharpened call.
The falling wall.
The reigns have been trimmed.
Now I know that you know the cause of my grin.
Now I know that you know you’ve reached back again.
The painted peach.
The second bleach.
The bruised last limb.
The shadow kite.
The harbor's site growing ever so dim.
Now I know that you know the cause of my grin.
Now I know that you know you’ve reached back again.
Track Name: Look Out
It’s been clear for years, but we kept up appearances.
Caught you pining to hear the lines interferences.

You’re a million miles away. Who you looking out for?
It’s nothing, it’s no one you say. Who you looking out for?

I cracked open the lock, that sealed your nothings away.
I thought I’d stake stock of what these relics portray.

I show you the note, you sway. Who you looking out for?
It’s nothing, it’s no one you say. Who you looking out for?
You’re a million miles away. Who you looking out for?
You’re fading so much each day. Who you looking out for?

You were missing from sleep. I should be used to your disappearances.
What is it you seek in the crawl space’s clearances?

Tell me now.

What voices cause you to stray? Who you looking out for?
It’s nothing, it’s no one you say. Who you looking out for?
You’re a million miles away. Who you looking out for?
You’re fading so much each day. Who you looking out for?
