об альбоме:
в последний день зимы - порция гитарного лоу-фая, протяжного, щемящего шугейза и психоделических электронных экспериментов.

"мы не гнались за чистотой звука, а напротив, кое-где сознательно делали его похожим на звучание карманного радио или старого пленочного плеера, кое-где мы завышали децибелы до предела, чтобы колонки фонили и ревели, в одном треке есть семпл со старой кассеты Nirvana, записанный через самые дешевые наушники со старого пленочного вокмана. все это нужно было для передачи того, что находилось в этот странный период наших жизней в наших головах. где-то на грани реальности и бреда рождались и записывались эти треки, ставшие для нас персональной коробкой Пандоры, хранящей запечатанными наших демонов. мы не писали это сговорившись заранее о какой-то концепции звука или текста - песни просто появлялись, брались целыми, как будто бы просто проходя через нас, как через дверь. и вся музыка, все тексты в итоге сами выстроились в одну историю, которую каждый прослушавший может проследить."

о проекте:
коллаборация For Lunar Dust и Change of Misdirection.
несмотря на старые совместные работы музыкантов, Outsider Birds - это совсем другая, отличная от них музыка.

Track Name: Long Road Back
There’s a ridge up ahead and my tires are screeching
Another dead end
Out of gas, out of luck, with a brain that's fucked up
I turn around

It's a long road back
Oh what a long road back
Just to get on track

Met a crone at a bar by the side of the freeway
She told me "I know who you are"
"Just a wanderer, aimlessly roaming the desert,
Honey, you seem like a fallen star"

Oh my, what a thing to hear in the heat of july
But that's all right - I bid her goodbye and walked out with a smile

Alone through the night
And the desolate lights passing by
This journey’s just beginning
Countless miles to survive

But I'll be fine
Track Name: the Calling
Look around
See the beauty, oh it’s washing out
Heaven sounds all around us
Yet i feel underground

Theres nothing else to say
Flowers wither when it's a new day
Shed a tear, drink to sleep
Drown in self-pity, but hey

It's calling
Can you hear the calling
It's calling
Around you is the perfect haze

Sometimes I wish that I'd never wake from this drunken sleep
The hole that I dig for myself is too damn deep

Look around
There's decay and Im rotting out
Simplify the solution
Where heaven can’t be found

Birds are falling throughout my keep
Kingdom shatters as I take a sip
Welcome home old boy
You're in here for life
So forget about joy
The smiles are fading - my life is ash
All that I've lived for - burned or trashed
All that's left is to exist
A washed-out husk of a man I miss

Follow the calling x4
Track Name: Borislava
Will you forgive me
For setting fires
I never meant to
Drive you mad

Borislava (x4)

Seems like
You should be knowing better than this
Im Just a kid
Just a kid
Haven't we been over this
Over this

Oh, Borislava
Turns out you know nothing
Oh, Borislava
We tought ourselves how to sing
Turns out you know nothing
The empty classroom's weeping
Track Name: Slowfall
Stumbling and crawling out of my mind
Need to let go but can’t unwind

All that I've hoped for's dead and gone
The winter road is stretching on

Pity I’m living in the dark
Should have at least lit me a spark

Sometimes you feel nothing at all
Sometimes it burns hot as the sun
Sometimes you feel your walls closing in
Trying to crush you with layers of guilt
Sometimes within you is this empty hole
Franticly fill it with memories of old
Sometimes you wish that you were dead
And as sun goes down you feel nothing but dread
Track Name: Barren Field
I was alone
On a barren field
Just a box of matches
And a Chesterfield

I’d never thought I’d see the sunrise again
The noose left a mark on my throat
Unabsolved of sin

They took my gun
And they took my wife
But that don’t matter – my pride is still alive

Where I shall walk
A trail be felt
Of cold dead bodies buried in the sand

Son of a bitch is still in my home town
Fucking whores, drinking whiskey and being a clown
The sky will turn red as I run him down
His corpse will feed the worms before the day is done
Track Name: Winter's Maw
Feel as we're coming to a point of no return
Ages come and go rotten and forlorn
Just try and speak to me and I will follow through
I've let the past choke me : too stagnant to review

These days whenever,
Whenever I loved you
Turned their cold backs on me
They spit and laughed and chewed

Someone commends me, saying Im not alone
But I can no longer sense at all
Track Name: Breaking Through
Walking through black holes

Say goodbye
To everyone you leave behind
Their existence
Seems so silly and refined

Oh no, I won't miss it all
So let's go, won't be waiting here for long

On the threshold, are we?
Beyond all life
Close your eyes one last time
As we embrace demise
We reached event horizon
There's got to be another world
Than the one we're used to
Filled with more than wishful thoughts

Release - our souls are dancing to the tune
Of the sweet oblivion that no one knew
But me and you,
Just me and you - we're breaking through
