this is my daily routine spend my hours on computer screen I lay around for a while get feeling like I’m supposed to be I love the daily routine take care of my basic needs I have a daily routine I thought it looked better inside a dream come on and hit me in the head real hard I haven’t hurt myself quite enough so far save me I don’t wanna think crunch crunch I’m feeling pink this is my daily routine I wonder what it’s like to be feeling clean guess I should probably know it’s something I’ve already seen come on and listen to me cry for help ‘cause sometimes I feel like I wanna kill myself if I took a trip back in time would the days still seem to feel so unkind I’m in prison but I think this place was built by me come on and show me how I’m supposed to live like I’m supposed to be I see the people who spend their lives in a worthwhile shine I’m laying down spending my life on wasting time

feel good, feel ok you in a cage, me in a cave or the other way around either way, I’m feeling down did I speak myself too soon I guess I didn’t really know what I was talking about did I put it all out on the line or was that some other time who can I tell about everything when I don’t even know anything for myself am I wrong or is that going on I don’t know just quite what’s going on I believe things all the time did you believe me when I told you that I’m feeling a bit over the hill or do you have reason to remember still who can I tell about everything when I don’t even know anything for myself am I wrong or is that going on am I wrong or is that going on I don’t know just quite what’s going on

It gets much worse at times When I feel like I’m fine My eyes start going bright I’m too restless to unwind Just say I never meant to break your heart It doesn’t matter that we got this far The way it happened is the way things are You know I’m trying not to take this hard Just say I never meant to break your heart It doesn’t matter that we got this far The way it happened is the way things are You know I’m trying not to take this hard Progress can come in spurts But what’s that all really worth? I have nothing to send So I’m gonna shut up then Just say I never meant to break your heart It doesn’t matter that we got this far The way it happened is the way things are You know I’m trying not to take this hard Just say I never meant to break your heart It doesn’t matter that we got this far The way it happened is the way things are I’m really trying not to take this hard

D19 03:06
sometimes you need that memory sound to get your music off the ground it’s something that you could have known dynamic microphone you know I was just nineteen when I met my D19 so old but new to me, can’t wait to see what’s gonna be I know my friends used to like you a lot and I figured I’d better give you a shot but I was shot down, didn’t work out the right sound didn’t come out D19 could have been my queen prettiest mic I’d ever seen she would’ve made everything sound so serene she’s my D19 plugged in, somethings wrong then I heard your bass response was gone roll off didn’t roll a thing couldn’t really hear me sing I’ll send her back home to England now maybe someone there can fix her maybe they know how I feel stupid like I wasted my time, but a D19 could have been so fine D19 could have been my queen someday I’m gonna find one that’s really clean I would have used it for the drums with my recording machine she’s my D19 D19 should have been my queen she was the prettiest microphone I’d ever seen and when they used it on the Beatles it sounded so mean she’s my D19

Loneliness 04:01
green things all around in here fan blows ringing in my ear how much time have i spent here when I look and you appear things to do I’m not allowed got a brand new feeling now I think that time is slowing down things I do and I’m not proud I feel dead laying in my bed filling up with dread getting in my head but somehow I stay I used to look forward to this day now it’s time and I don’t think I was ready cause I don’t get dressed till I’m going out I don’t know what I feel stressed about I don’t know what I need, I was all wrong cause all I wanted was some loneliness guess I’ll have plenty of it soon used to think I don’t have time for this but now it’s all I wanna do all I wanted was some loneliness guess I’ll have plenty of it soon but now you’ve gone some thousand miles away and I’ve got nothing left to do start to think about all our time but now it’s gone and I’m losing mine I wish I could have known I was all wrong cause all I wanted was some loneliness guess I’ll have plenty of it soon there’s just no way for me without you love and now I realize that it’s true all I wanted was some loneliness guess I’ll have plenty of it soon but all the days are filled with loneliness now you’ll have plenty of it too

Gentle 03:27
I’d believe in anything you want me to see I don’t care if it’s real or pretend I think that my body gave a warning to me When the blood wouldn’t rush to my head A heavy hum was hanging over everything I sank into the sound I collapsed on the ground But I’ve got a way to feel good Stuck in the back of my mind I’ve got a way to feel good To burn out bright I could stay in the dark for you And i want to Paint a picture of the way you want it to be Did it look half as good as you planned? I think that my body has a secret to keep Can I shrink any more than I have? I’ve been finding trouble in peripheral scenes Through the crack in the door and the holes in the floor I’ve got a way to feel good Stuck in the back of my mind I’ve got a way to feel good Just close your eyes Thought you knew If I wanted to I could ask you

Trash 02:52
I can turn the hand I leave a trail now I can make it back keep hold only way I can tie a rope to hold on to the past I would cross the street tar is sticking underneath my feet all that time I had prick my toes on walnuts in the grass don’t want to hold it if it isn’t mine forever but I grab onto anything and add it to the clutter what am I doing collecting trash I can turn the page calendar from ten years ago I could never turn away can’t stop watching something getting old what am I doing
9.
I Wanna Die 05:38
I don’t know how I could do this to myself the feeling that I have is not one of health I guess I’m moving in the right way for bad but I keep going I know I can’t decide what’s right and what’s wrong I cannot trust myself I haven’t for long without the comfort of my comfortable past, I wonder why... I wanna die when I wake up I want to go back to sleep I can’t decide if I’m a person or sheep I just can’t break my routine and I don’t know if I want to I can’t confide in any one of my friends because I know it will lead into my end I can’t believe in anything that I think, and I wonder why... I wanna die
10.
Drum In 04:42
I don’t know how this all became but every day I just feel so strange emptiness can fade away emptiness still has its pain looking back on my worst days I’d be shaking, wonder what is wrong now I wonder what’s the first day but now it’s hopeless, I can’t stop gagging I’m too busy telling lies can i trust you with my time if I don’t cough up my own brain if I can suffer my own shame I’m part of your joke, my insides shown I’m gonna feel so bad when I get home drum in my head fill up on bread what do I need to make it complete It’s four ‘o clock now it’s getting dark I haven’t eaten anything I can’t believe in everything seven ‘o clock, I wake up and it’s dark I haven’t eaten anything

about

Disq have assembled a razor-sharp, teetering-on-the-edge-of-chaos melange of sounds, experiences, memories, and influences. Collector ought to be taken literally—it is a place to explore and catalogue the Madison, Wisconsin band’s relationships to themselves, their pasts, and the world beyond the American Midwest as they careen from their teens into their 20s. This turbulence is backdropped by gnarled power pop, anxious post-punk, warm psych-folk, and hectic, formless, tongue-in-cheek indie rock.

Collector, like the band itself, is defined and tightly-contoured by the ties between the five members. Raina Bock (bass/vocals) and Isaac deBroux-Slone (guitar/vocals) have known each other from infancy, growing up and into music together. Through gigging around Madison, they met and befriended Shannon Connor (guitar/keys/vocals), Logan Severson (guitar/vocals), and Brendan Manley (drums)—three equally dedicated and adventurous musicians committed to coaxing genre boundaries.

Produced by Rob Schnapf, Collector is a set of songs largely pulled from each of the five members’ demo piles over the years. They’re organic representations of each moment in time, gathered together to tell a mixtape-story of growing up in 21st century America. The songs are marked by urgency, introspection, tongue-in-cheek nihilism, and a shrewd understanding of pop and rock structures and their corollaries—as well as a keen desire to dialogue with and upset them.
