Dust 03:43
There are only bombs today, beneath an orange sky wind rustling slow through the trees The guardian says: “it’s too early, wait and see, as time goes by Keep awake, you’ll know what to do. That’s it!” Dusty roads, someone screaming, you look for a place to hide Run to the top of the hill! Don’t try to remember Don’t try to feel emotions There's nothing to regret Keep me away from here! You learned to be what everybody wants you to be No way, too much noise, I can’t hear your voice! Don’t try to remember Don’t try to feel emotions There's nothing to regret Keep me away from here!

Feelings of the good times, don’t want ‘em anymore A river in the jungle, I can’t go home We were singing all the old songs, now I can’t recall Pictures of him, can’t get enough Alone in his death place, another day is done I’m waiting on the sun for no one to come As far as I can dream to sit here and die if only this sinking boat could rise up and fly He dressed so well and spoke so well Memories of that smile, long long ago No longer sure I’ve been here before He understands this makes no sense He understands I won’t stay there Maybe it could be better with someone else Wish I could want to be somewhere else Wish the rain would wash away a need to hope and stay When the sun comes to find me I’ll be far away

Yellow morning, a voice is calling What a crazy crowd! Junkies, zombies, snakes and monkeys They’re all around All day long All night long The door is open, the frog is broken Smell of her perfume Fortune teller, would you read my life? I know you'll be a liar I don’t mind And you don’t talk Hey, don’t bring me down Please don’t let me down Yellow morning, no one’s talking Just a carillon Try to walk, try to run Don’t know what to do All alone You are gone All alone All day long Hey, don’t bring me down Please don’t let me down Hey, don’t bring me down Please don’t let me down All alone You are gone All alone You are gone All alone You are gone All alone You are gone

Just a boy 02:38
Hey boys, hey girls It’s time to freak out Like a wolf in the moonlight Drink blood and fight for your rights. Kill your modern screen It’s nothing more than a stupid machine. Time flows, It flows fast And you stay behind Living is better, now or never I’m just a boy, just a boy Living is better, now or never Hey dude, open your eyes! Your life is kind of hell Bloody hell and blackout It’s time to freak out! You follow yourself My stupid elf Like a wolf in the moonlight Drink blood and fight for your rights Living is better, now or never I’m just a boy, just a boy Living is better, now or never I’m just a boy, just a boy Living is better, now or never

Drink all the wine, smile at the night Poets are gone, they don’t pay the rent Wasting some time, she was so nice Dreamin’ is easier if you don’t look back Shaking these dice, brushing a knife Now it’s the time, go to Mexico! Staring at the phone, willing to ring Or calling your mummy for the very first time So go, so go and leave, or stay Or you, or you can wait and see So go, so go and leave, or stay Or you, or you can wait and…. Every time we say goodbye, it’s good to think about a brand new day I’d like! Every time we say goodbye, it’s good to think about a brand new day I’m sure! Reading some books, fuckin’ your friend Summer is done, and you don’t understand Droppin’ a line, nothing seems strange It is so light when you don’t have to change All that you want, all that you need All of your desires, all of your dreams All of the times I was waiting for you Now It’s all over and you know that it’s true So go, so go and leave, or stay Or you, or you can wait and see So go, so go and leave, or stay Or you, or you can wait and see So go, so go and leave, or stay Or you or you can wait and see So go so go and leave, or stay For me, for me it’s just the same

Contéz 02:58
Hero in my songs Beautiful and very strong Powerful and rich, before King of a candy store I lived in Downtown Homeless in Chinatown Everyone greeted me, Cause I was born on the southern sea, the southern sea, the southern sea I bring with me, my sweet madness, my desire to invent, create and destroy I bring with me, your desire to live to love, to trust this world I was a famous singer Showing the middle finger Dream, lover space, lover music, lover spicy, lover Do not complain, react! Take the direction of your heart It’s time to loud and start to play Exotic light leads you to the right way I bring with me, my sweet madness, my desire to invent, create and destroy I bring with me, your desire to live, to love, to feed my soul I bring with me, my sweet madness, my desire to invent, create and destroy. I bring with me, your desire to live to love, to trust this world

Since I was a young boy I hate fast cars and discotheques I see a lot of guys and girls only care ‘bout stupid things, shit! I don't feel like I don't feel like I don't feel like them I wanna to stay at home Ride my bike all the time Play some ol’ tunes on the radio I don’t want to know what’s wrong I don’t want to hear this song I don't feel like I don't feel like I don't feel like you I don't feel like, I don't feel like you I don't feel like, I don't feel like you I don't feel like, I don't feel like you People talking over there thinking I don’t understand She smiles so sweetly, she’s fine I don’t want to know what’s wrong I don’t want to hear this song I don’t want to spend my life with you There's nothing more to say It's impossible to explain How skateboarding takes me away I don't feel like, I don't feel like you I don't feel like, I don't feel like you I don't feel like, I don't feel like you

Far away 03:25
Roses, Jesus! I wanna be away Everything is dark and grey Dreamers, screamers they think I’m liar: “Hey boy, why don’t you die?” Now it seems that he’s forgetting you Now the boat is flowing without you The painter is waiting for his world to collapse Considering his life a total lapse The princess is crying alone in her room praying that a new morning doesn’t come And people say he’s coming back to you People think He’s stoppin’ hangin around Looking for the things that you used to do So You know it hurts, but you don’t… …one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight! “beauty, sadness, you don’t wanna stay here The love that you taste, to test all of your fears” Then she said: “I have an idea” “I adore the sound of the trees in March Let me take you there, please trust me” And I don’t look back, and I can’t go on, then I try to sleep, but I can’t And I know the bell is tolling for me And people say he’s coming back to you People think he’s stoppin’ hanging around Looking for the things that you used to do So You know it hurts, but you don’t mind And people say he’s coming back to you People think he’s stoppin’ hanging around Looking for the things that you used to do So You know it hurts, but you don’t mind

Lost summer 04:29
We went down from the Ocean Sunday afternoon Driving miles‘n’miles through a silent no man’s land At the gas station wind was killin’ things that were already dead Only some lost shadow in the summer’s depth of field Rollin... Echoes of love songs, I was a long way from my home Such a stupid stranger in a big land far away All the years I wasted to become a better man They’ll never give me your eyes or any place to stay Hey, you! There’s nothing right or wrong Don’t you call my name, It’s too late, I’m gone As long as you are in my dreams, I know that you’re not here tonight What a mind journey! Drag me away Hills are burnin’, even at night Oh, nothing changin’, and I’m gettin’old City is bleeding, and I’m gettin’ dumb Hey, you! There’s nothing right or wrong Don’t you call my name, It’s too late, I’m gone As long as you are in my dreams, know that you’re not here tonight

about

Big Mountain County are back for more with a second helping of sweaty, psychsexrock on their latest offering, “Somewhere Else”. This adored, Rome-based, four piece band took a year out from their gruelling touring ways in order to dig deep composing their new material. For these boys, it’s been all about solid live performance and psych rock from the get-go. In just a few years the band has earned international acclaim for their European tours and participation in festivals: at Binic they were invited to perform two years in a row and at Rome Psych Fest, the press unanimously declared them “best live band 2016”. As a consequence they sold out of first press vinyls and Gas Vintage Records (their label at the time) had to put a rush on a second pressing of their first album “Breaking Sound". 2016 saw them embark on an intensive tour schedule and as a testament to the strength of their stunning performances, Area Pirate Records released the live album “Anachronicles”. The past year has seen them focusing their energies on writing and recording their sophomore studio album. Enlisting the creative ears and deft hands of production duo Paola Mirabella (Honeybird and the birdies) and Andrea Pulcini (Persian Pelican) they were able to fine-tune their approach to the recording process. We’re talking killer riffs side-by-side with soaring vocals and synths that colour midnight melodies. The songs range from personal narratives to journeys down an existential abyss - all of them carried by heart-felt grooves. From “Contèz” which blazes like the Mediterranean sun, to “Lost Summer” which transports us across a sleeping desert and “Dust” along with the title track “Somewhere Else” which both evoke strange and trippy atmospheres. Listening to "Just a Boy" and "Dancing Beam" you will realize this is a record made for moving both the heart and the hips. BMC are your gypsy guides and if you close your eyes when you listen, it’s just possible that the next time you lift your gaze, you really will be somewhere else.
