about

“ ...in short perfect!”
Mark Barton - The Sunday Experience


“Even better than before! Topnotch!”
DJ Astro - Psychotropic Zone


“I did enjoy this record...here's to hoping they can make it!”
Steven Spoerl - Playground Misnomer


“Magical!”
Jason Barnard - The Strangebrew



“A mainstay of Chicago’s music scene for nigh on two decades, psych popsters The Luck Of Eden Hall show that they have lost none of their touch with this cracking new album. If you’ve never heard them, imagine a more accessible version of Asteroid No. 4 or The Brian Jonestown Massacre in that they mix dense guitar sounds with trippy vocals and Keith Moon-like drum fills. This works to best effect on the brilliantly named ‘This Weather Is Better For Velvet Clothes’, which has a tune your postie could whistle (not entirely sure what they’d make of the incendiary guitar solo, though). Butterfly Revolutions loses its way a little in the middle (the band are obviously on nodding terms with early ’70s Floyd and some rather nasty grunge acts), but is redeemed by The Three O’Clock-esque ‘She Falls Down’ and the finale, ‘Queen Anne’s Lace’, a wonderful slice of mellow psych. ”
Ashley Norris - Shindig!

Track Name: Chrysalide
Chrysalide


Would you like to make the evening news?
Tighten up your wires and your screws
Your look is so determined and confused

Delicately wipe off all the dust
Paint another coat over the rust
Shed another tear dear if you must

Hold on to me chrysalide
Has your coveted insecticide
Already touched your mind

Hold on to me chrysalide
Does the turning give you butterflies
What have you left behind

Hold onto me chrysalide
In a dream I take you home tonight
Frolicking in the sky

Your well adjusted harness is secure
Your well adjusted mentally obscure
Beautiful, misguided and demure

High upon the ledge you seem alight
Standing graceful tall into the night
Ready to employ eternal flight
Track Name: This Weather's Better For Velvet Clothes
This Weather's Better For Velvet Clothes

Monday, a perfect day
For taking pictures of the clouds
She left her green beret
On the bus we took to town
Nose rings and pretty things
Gathered in a sari shop
Her eyes were so surprised
When I stopped breathing

When you're hoping it rains it pours
You think you hide it, but girl it shows
This weather's better for velvet clothes
This weather's better for velvet clothes

People love to stare
Rose incense in the air
I need a bite to eat
Help me get back on my feet
We left the sari shop
For a bowl of be bim bop
She smiled in my eyes
I really want samosas
Track Name: Jupiter
Jupiter

In the morning when I
Heard you calling as I
Watched the fountain blowing
Up to the sky

Sparkling we come down
Making only a sound
Touch the ground and I know
I’m never calling you again

Out of breath and out of
What is left beside us?
Lying here to guide us
My astrolabe

Search the Heavens again
Trying to recall when
You were there and I know
I’m never calling you again

The spot on your lung is pneumonia
The spot on your heart is from her
The storm in your head
Is why they call you Jupiter
Track Name: Velvet And Corduroy
Velvet And Corduroy

Velvet and corduroy
Sharing an Almond-Joy
Glaring she walks away
Seeking another boy
He’s so annoyed

Ride on the Tilt-a-Whirl
She’s just another girl
Wishing she’d spent her last
Token on lemonade
She’s so afraid

What’s a person to do
When the one next to you
Is coming unglued?

“Alive, Alive”, he slurred,
“See the Two Headed Squirrel.
Come see the Frozen Girl
Before she melts away
On this Saturday.”

Their cotton candy’s blue
Giggling as they chew
Consuming all that is left
In a Sapphic way
Then they run away

What’s a person to do
When there’s one next to you ……..
Who’s coming unglued?

Velvet and corduroy
Another Almond-Joy
Glaring she walks away
Seeking another boy
He’s so annoyed
Track Name: Shampoo
Shampoo

Pretty little horses sound real fine
The songs they play
Are in tune

The King has played the wrong chess piece this time
Queen’s knight takes pawn
You lose

As you lie awake the Sandman said
“Pray I’ll comfort you.”
It’s true

There it comes, there it goes
Old enough, enough to know
Let it go

Leave it up to me to shape your mind
It will wash away
With shampoo
Track Name: Silly Girl
Silly Girl

I know a girl who likes to talk in riddles
Rolling among the flowers she plays in the pouring rain

And I know a girl who likes to tell tall stories
Spinning you round and round she’ll tell you once again

Then she says, “I love you”
Nothing could be this real
Then he says, “I love you and I’m gonna show you all the world
My silly little girl”

I know a girl who wear’s the latest fashion
Singing there’s magic potion flowing through her veins

I know a girl whose voice is sweet as candy
Floating like Sun light through an Eastern window pane
Track Name: She Falls Down
She Falls Down

Running up to the wall
Sweet dreams of the other side
Fingernails in the cracks
We start to climb

She falls down
She falls down

When we’re near to the wall
We hear something rhythmical
It’s just the thing, you’ll see
It will be something magical

She falls down
She falls down

Feel so odd and displaced, there’s
No more room for my face, just
Confrontation and grief, go
Over the wall life will be so…

When we get to the top
All you see will be beautiful
Keep your toes in the crags
And don’t look back

She falls down
She falls down
Track Name: Queen Anne's Lace
Queen Anne’s Lace

She is a sunlight filtered charm
She has a rainbow on her arm
She’s looking down out of the sky
She has a glacier in her eyes


I see a different light
Through holes in the night
So she said

She’s wearing bells on every toe
She is the one. She’s what you chose
She is the Buddah when she laughs
She gives you everything you have

I see a different light
Through holes in the night
I touch some Queen Anne’s lace
The tears roll down my face
I hear the mourning dove
Singing a song of love
I taste the flavor red
Through this thing in my head
So she said
