about

Recorded during the summer of 2016 on reel-to-reel tape, "Filament" captures the sound of a band in a room together exploring the corners of their musical capabilities. Best listened to from beginning to end, the album is just that - an album. Not simply a collection of songs, "Filament" is a journey through the spirit of rock, both musically and lyrically.

There are so many people who have helped us realize the dream of playing our music to the world, and a few of them are listed here. Great many thanks go to Donald Moats of Habitat Noise Studios for the use of this excellent analog recording gear and his general easy-going nature in the studio; Ryan Koch of Rock 106.1 for his tireless support of not only our group but the entire arts and music community in the low country; Jake Schlosser for his incredible original depiction of the Cosmic Ninja Monk; Matthew Fitzgerald for his photography, both included in this album and on the many other occasions he’s shot the band; Simon Ross of Planetary Projections for the countless times he’s helped the band, too numerous to name; Southbound Brewing Company for hosting the raddest of album release parties; the various Savannah-based arts and music publications who’ve featured our progression over the last 3 years; all the muscians and artists who make the Savannah creative community thrive. Honorable mention to those who’ve gone above and beyond the call of duty to support the band - Amy Horton, Brandy Kennedy Koch, Jeff Neugebauer, Xulu Jones, Tokalos, the old Brooklyn and CT crews, Art March Savannah, Rock 106.1, et al.

As always we mention former members of the band Jonathan Connors, Alec Giggi, Chris Tilley, Andrew Brunetti and the fallen captain, Brenner Eugenides.

This album is dedicated to seekers of groovy truth.

about

Broken Glow Savannah, Georgia

Once described as the sonic love child of Slash and Led Zeppelin, Broken Glow's one mission is plain - to rock. After over five years of recording, traveling, melting speakers, exploding amps and musical mayhem, Garrett and Paul remain the last men standing as they continue to take their brand of heavy music to the limit. ... more

Track Name: Iconoclast
Ascend the tower of kings, become a ghost off in the fog
You’re built to feed on apathy, you think you know just who you are

Burn the icon, go!
Stand up and behold, melt away the gold, see what you’ve been sold.

Beat down the voices screaming, a man of peace can’t spare the rod
You crack the skulls and they bleed that they might see you as a god

Burn the icon, go!
Stand up and behold, melt away the gold, see what you’ve been sold.
Theater of image, the curtain falls and you bow
Burn the icon down!

Tear down the walls that sustain the broken hope of this facade
Burn the icon, go!
Stand up and behold, melt away the gold, see what you’ve been sold
Track Name: Running Scared
I’m running scared and ill-prepared,
The eyes that glared, their burden shared
Footsteps creeping, floorboards creaking
Tearing apart at the seams, scraping claws of the hound

I’m running scared

It’s hard to see the harmony, what can it be that haunted me? Spectres sweeping watch me sleeping, open my ees in a sweat, see the walls crashing down. I’m running scared. I turned around a hovered above the ground, then woke up under water and almost drowned, and so I ran for hours, ran every day, I used up all my powers to get away, ‘cause I’m running scared
Track Name: Smoke
Smoke, I breathe you in and know that you burn me

I light a match and watch it burn
Flick the filter and drop the ashes in my urn
Cloudy venom, melting skin
Used to losing, afraid to win
You’re the start and the finish, my favorite sin, like

Smoke, I breathe you in and know that you’ll burn my
Throat, you taste so good but sometimes you make me
Choke, I’m hooked on you, you’re in every word I wrote today
Every note I play, smoke

I tried the patch, I tried the pill
Cold turkey, but living without your poison makes me ill
Flames and mirrors, time is up
Glass half empty, shattered cup
You’re the start and the finish, you fill me up like

Smoke, I breathe you in and know that you’ll burn my
Throat, you taste so good but sometimes you make me
Choke, I’m hooked on you, you’re in every word I wrote today
Every note I play, smoke

I am not alone if I am holding you in
Strike a flame and watch me as I slowly begin
You’ve got a pull I can not hide from and it’s starting to show
I wish you wouldn’t pull on me, just let me go
Track Name: Monk Mode
Lay in the darkness of the night
Say what you think is wrong or right

Stay in the brightness of the day
Say only that which you wish to say
Track Name: Blue Dream
Sittin’ by myself, ain’t got noone else
Thoughts up on a shelf and I’m tryin’ to find ‘em
Got noone to meet, noone here to greet
Guess I’ll set my feet on tryin’ to find ‘em

Well it seems to me we can all agree
It’d be a better world if we were livin’ in a blue dream

I was talkin’ to my brother, he’s got a different mother
He goes by another kind of name
See, we live on the same street but we ain’t got the same amount to eat, Can’t help sit and wonder who’s to blame
So I guess I understand why he’d think I can
See him as another man, but that’s not my game

Why can’t we live in harmony?
We got a whole lot more in common than it seems
And with eyes to see we can all agree
It’d be a better world if we were livin’ in a blue dream

Won’t you listen to the sound and pass it back around?
I think we finally found some common ground

Why can’t we live in harmony?
We got a whole lot more in common than it seems
And with eyes to see when it’s you and me, together make us ‘we’ and that’s a solid team
Well it seems to me we can all agree
It’d be a better world if we were livin’ in a blue dream
Track Name: Blister
I’ve got a blister on my fretting hand
It’s almost more pain than I can stand
But I gotta play because I’m in demand
Rockin’ the house with my band, come on!

I got a blister on my fingertip
I need that hand to get a better grip
Gotta hold on tight I’ll never let it slip
Hook my IV up to a lava drip, well

It doesn’t matter who you think you are
A little pebble or a shooting star
We put our pennies in a Mason jar
To help us find out who we are
I hope it don't leave a scar

I got a blister and it’s gonna pop
I’ll drain the fluid, each and every drop
And clean the floor up with a broom and mop
Never gonna beat me I won’t ever stop, well, t doesn’t matter who you think you are, a little pebble or a shooting star, we put our pennies in a Mason jar to help us find out who we are

It doesn’t matter who you think you are
A little pebble or a shooting star
We put our pennies in a Mason jar
To help us find out who we are
I hope it don't leave a scar

I had a callous when I woke today
Looks like that blister finally went away
So even if the effort doesn’t pay
I’m gonna shut the fuck up and play, so come on
Track Name: Cousin
When I was a little one just like everybody else
I had a mother and father and a little home
Then I got older, started looking all around
Told my mother and father I gotta roam

And oh, wouldn’t you know?
Found a crew of brothers and a lifetime lover
And oh, don’t you know, I found life out on the road

When I was a little one, just like everybody else
I had another family far away
Yeah, I had a cousin, only saw him once a year
Talking over turkey Thanksgiving day

And oh, wouldn’t you know?
He came from a law man
But I came from a song man
And oh, don’t you know
We met one day on the road
Lay aside your heavy load

How’s your family, how’s you wife?
Are you happy with your life? Can we get back some day?

When I was a little one, just like everybody else
I wondered what it’d be like when I was grown
Now I see the rain come and the grey clouds moving in
And the fruits of seeds that I have sown

And oh, wouldn’t you know
We’re a little older with a world on our shoulder
And oh, don’t you know
There’s still life out on the road
Track Name: Well
I’m going down, down to the bottom of the well
When will I get some water?
Guess only time will tell

I’m going down, down with a bucket and a rope
When I reach the top I won’t waste a drop
Gonna drink that water to my soul

I’m climbing up, climbing up to the top
Till I get enough water, you know that I can’t stop

I’m going down, down with a bucket and a rope
When I reach the top I won’t waste a drop
Gonna drink that water to my soul.
