It's tricky It's ssssssssssssssss xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx It's gliding Free timing What an incline The ramp logistics Fresh powder Free gliding It's ssssssssssssssss xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx It's tricky It's gliding and spin forever and spin forever spinning forever More than a 360 It's gliding The world was moving The world was ssssssssssssssss xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

I am paddling so slowly Trying to get all the way Across this mountain lake cold water And clear all the way down Green are all these feelings in me Somewhere between D and G I can't push them out, they're stuck here And freaking me all the way out Empty vessel aspirations Blank blank blank Empty vessel aspirations Forget forget In the middle green bandana Nothing special hike from home Sometimes plans don't go as scheduled Winds can blow you off course Stressings muddle up the framework Easy to get lost in it Windex wiper at the ready Clear skies let the light in Empty vessel aspirations Blank blank blank Empty vessel aspirations Forget forget Forget how to forget Take your plans and throw them away Even though you spent the day Figuring the best solution Crossing every eye

Reach Out 04:55
Reach out Look out Type out Branch out Watch out Switch out Take out Balance out Break out Freak out I wrote a line about life it rhymed really well I'm growin up I'm growin up The day shrinks shorter about a month about a month (about a month) I wrote a line about life it rhymed really well It must be! It must be! I woke up a little early I tried to clean One day with a little too much time and one hand slowly bouncing across the peripheral It's a round about way to put it [: It's a round about way to put it :] but if you look closely it's: 1 spot 2 spot 3 spot 4 spot is the furthest away In other words: [: often. :]

Sedimentary 06:39
We are on sediment rock All the way on top All the way on top Standing in 3 positions Sit how you want Sit how you want We are on sediment rock All the way on top All the way on top This castle sand used to be stone 'til someone chewed it! Heights freak me out a little Planes freak me out a little We're looking down All these grooves are going down for what seems like forever forever...

Short Wave 02:14
I could hear dead air when I tuned in tonight

about

It Lo is a collaboration between it foot, it ears (Jason Rabb + Nick Foster) and Logan Hone. These songs were written during a 5 day residency in Torrey, UT which was followed by 2 shows and a recording session in Los Angeles (Aug 13-20, 2017).

"When I listen to IT LO I’m struck by the fact that these songs exist just the way they do, in just this proportion and with just these qualities. These songs rock and perplex. They fit together in surprising and deliberate ways. They might not have. They might have been radically or subtly different.

The trio might not have written the songs in five days in Jason’s parents’ empty house in Torrey, Utah. Logan might not have cut his finger bad with a breadknife halfway through the week. They might not have noticed that the neighbors were polygamists. They might not have left the door open to rehearse and the door closed to record. They might not have recorded the songs at all (they almost didn’t). The process of collaboration, with its attendant and essential compromises, is subject to innumerable material contingencies. When I listen to IT LO, these alternatives, the albums that didn’t come into being, feel oddly close, oddly at hand.

The album that does exist is not an obvious combination of (or alternation between) Logan’s, Nick’s, and Jason’s aesthetics. It is not a clear point at the confluence of three individual practices. It was not a guaranteed, preconfigured, or inevitable outcome of this collaboration. But this album, this set of non-genred, addictive jams, is essential to IT LO. This band, and this album, exists just as it does and just as it can. It is a remarkable example of the nature of collaboration. Of compromise and inspiration. " –Jesse Q-T
