take heed 04:13
see here ordinary things fishing pole bowling ball take heed inner strength nowhere near aisle four picture on the inside a perfect summer scene sunbathed hill wildflowers when they rise they rise so fast taller healthier every year

with love 04:06
for every action react with love born of confusion proceed with love this lonely membrane is paper thin and the sharpest tools are found within you a shard of glass or grain of sand are more real than fear divider heart of the problem will heal with love

when will we see brighter days thieves are stealing our future away dreams of peace and flying cars have been replaced by oil wars can we learn from history solve world problems creatively hold our leaders accountable bring an end to violence what i meant by flying cars was fast machines that sail through clouds what i meant by flying cars was clean machines fuelled by the sun

about

Do a keyword search on 'leveler' and you'll get more than one definition: that which levels, that which destroys, one who seeks to eliminate social inequality and so forth.

Half the tracks on ‘leveler’ were created in 2005 while I lived outside of Chicago, before I knew I’d move to California. And the other half were made in an apartment in Los Angeles, sitting on the floor with my recording equipment propped up on milk crates. Whereas my previous album ‘new realities’ was relatively cohesive and ambient, ‘leveler’ is more varied. There’s a lot of repetition, a bit of noise, and a few vaguely self-help/political/apocalyptic or incidental vocals.

This album contains one of my favorite tracks, yet I once wrote the sarcastic tagline: Crap-tronica at its finest from the world's least popular meuzzishin! A reviewer on iTunes later described this project as "the worst album ever recorded”. Perhaps it’s fitting that one sunny afternoon while cycling along the Los Angeles river bike path I snapped the cover shot of the torn-up truck.
