about

As an abstract exploration of identity, Lost In The Ebb finds dark, thoughtful lyricism in conjunction with a psychedelic fusion of surf rock, neo-soul, hip-hop, and Brazilian guitar. Telling personal stories through poetic lyrics, intricate instrumentation, and dreamlike vocal harmonies, the record captures the essence of coastal California. The songs carry their own independent energy yet function seamlessly within the album as a whole. It flows like the sea-- shifting, rising, and dropping-- leaving you in an altered state, elated, inspired, emotional. Killion and Stone’s personal influences of people, place, culture, and nature, as well as their own evolution as artists, is evident in this memento.

"With a small coterie of like-minded souls, Killion made a record full of dreamy, late-night psychedelia that spins a calm, soothing spell. True to its title, the music ebbs and flows, with Killion’s guitar filigrees floating through whirlpools of ambient sound to support his gently surrealistic lyrics and Stone’s sublime harmonies." - J. Poet (Magnet Magazine)

"Lost in the Ebb will welcome you with a smooth surface, but underneath the warm sound lies an intensity that will keep you around far longer than your average summer anthem. Usually, an album like Lost in the Ebb, which is characterized by its laid back nature, would remain rhythmically and harmonically in a comfortable groove, but this record is one that is not afraid to gracefully knock you around. Getaway Dogs are not afraid to throw a quick series of chord changes to keep you on your toes. An offbeat accent is liable to shift the focus of your gentle head bobbing every now and then. I feel that this record is one that has plenty for the audiophile who is looking for a smooth ride and one who delights in complexities of a mobile backbone to a song."
(The Indie Blender)

about

Getaway Dogs San Francisco, California

"Getaway Dogs inhabit their own starry eyed universe, drifting along to the tropical pulsation of big bossa-nova guitars, shimmering intergalactic keyboards, somnambulant vocals, whispered percussion and buoyant melodies... With a small coterie of like-minded souls, Killion made a record full of dreamy, late-night psychedelia that spins a calm, soothing spell." (J. Poet, Magnet Magazine) ... more

Track Name: Indonesia
Ants
they walk in single too
for half a day or half a mile
would be like half the world for me and you
Birds
they dream of fame and fortune too
and i dream i can fly with my closed eyes
maybe with the next pair i see through

Sun rise in her face
be soon to see a
night fall in from space
Indonesia

Fish
forget each other's first names too
better yet perhaps they never had them
you said no one does but man you do
And ants
they walk in file too
for half a day or half a mile
and that's like half the earth to me and you

Sun rise in her face
be soon to see a
night fall in from space
Indonesia

And i'll believe it
when i first see it
when i first hear it
when i first feel it
Track Name: Excuses/Opinions
I cannot explain myself to my demons no, no more
Excuses they keep spilling out
Out of my face down to the floor

And the old train tracks will soon be below the bay
That old shell beach will soon be below the bay
A month is a minute and a year is another day
And the old train tracks will soon be below or so they say

I cannot restrain myself from my devils no, no more
Opinions they keep stumbling out
Out of my face on out the door

But you remind me of somebody I've met before
Track Name: Wild Guess
lonesome days may they stay away
you've been sitting here wondering what to say
you lost yourself in the cedar trees
the sky rolled over you could hear it breathe

"you ain't safe with me
just take a wild guess and get away
it's easy"

got some time or some time to kill
you tell yourself lies just to feel the thrill
serpent dreams in a restless sleep
you can hold them close but they're not yours to keep

and you ain't safe with me
just take a wild guess and get away it's easy

and i ain't safe with you
you've got the eyes of a billionaire in a burning room
Track Name: Standstill
i might be alone
staring at the ceiling
but i'm taking my time
savoring this feeling

some people they want it all
but all they want is the word
just take in the time as it comes
and it goes in a blur

Stand still
and i will stand still too

thinking about friends
off to big cities
Track Name: Jago
Overhead beneath a half sun
howling a song
Jago winding down a valley
black stray from the mountain
Midnight color in the sky
tells me why i ain't sleeping
Unreal how it's realistic
this Arctic july

ever in that old ground
lone meanderer
and every where she roams
bones and antlers

Overhead beneath a half sun
gravity gone
Jago canine caught a sound
and a scent by the river
Found me beaten by the north country
weary and lost
Stillness
is that golden hour lasting all summer

couldn't move if i tried like stone and amber
ever in that old ground
lone meanderer
and every where she roams
bones and antlers

wild
so strange
Jago call me by name
while i'm so tame
so bay dog bay
Track Name: Your Ladder
when the high tides hit the homeland
and the mountains drink the sky
i'll be drinking myself
and dreaming of you
while the ghosts under pavement
whistle their tune
well i've got no problem
remembering the good times
and oh they're still coming
as long as we're young
and the hours don't pass
all too fast or too slow
where do they go?

does it matter?
i'm your ladder
just let me know

when you wake up
put 2 and 2 together
put on a record
and fill your cup
all the chips on all the shoulders
in this modern world
are we in a rush to get older?
well i have no reason to try and impress you
to try to be clever or cool
from my window
the highway sounds like the ocean
so i don't mind breaking the rules

it don't matter
let it shatter
just let it go

an ocean and highway and a ladder i dream
Track Name: Paper Soul
i don't know
but i've been told
my soul's worth paper
if so i'll sell it later
not this time
feeling fine

stranger
are you strange too?
stranger
what can i do?
i don't know
but i've been told
my soul's worth paper
if so i'll sell it later
not this time
feeling fine

and i've been told
but i don't know
can't help but wonder
were you my favorite summer?
lost in time
my divine stranger

are you strange too?
stranger
what can i do?
Track Name: Something Like Color TV
there's animation in my head
something like color tv
there's animation in my head
pretending to be what i see

big yellow lemon in the sky
raining juice into my room
from up there so very high
it's understood i'll be there soon
i know i know i'll be there soon

there's animation in my head
heart is anchored to the vein
spider caught up in the web
my consciousness is my pain

it won't be long 'til i belong

in this clay that i consume
once was lost but now i'm gone
it's understood i'll be there soon
i know i know i'll be there soon

something like color
Track Name: Cachoeira
vai, cachoeira
se for vou também
com certeza saudade
pro além

sabe que amo bem

vai, cachoeira
se for vou também
com certeza saudade
do além
Track Name: Time is a Rising Tide
what could i say now?
what could i say?
lying in my bed of poppies
you feel so far away

i wonder why the train stopped here
this is not my home
the air's so fuckin' cold out there
you better close that window

open ends and loosened ties
count the questions in your mind
slow infection grows inside
eyes are open mind is fried

time is a rising tide
we'll be underwater soon
Track Name: Saturated // The Dunes
one cold day
when you're old and grey
you're gunna wish you'd said
words that you thought
but could not say

one warm night when you're all alone
you're gunna realize the disguise
was just skin and bone

so the grass is green every other side
in a saturated and jaded state of mind
but if you ever give yourself a chance
to love your self you'll be ready for someone else

oh ain't it a mystery?
it's like the bottom of the sea
it's at the bottom of the sea


i was thinking so much
couldn't tell if i was thinking at all
days they pass by so fast
and the nights go at a crawl
i was on the dunes
watching wide eyed sun and moon
i've never felt so alive
so i closed my lids to see
just what i looked like from inside
