about

Devin Tait West Hollywood, California

Having transplanted himself from Kansas to California around the turn of the millennium, Devin Tait quickly found himself derailed from his original plan to join a boyband. Meeting a couple of guitar playing lesbians at karaoke led Tait to form the band Shitting Glitter with Amy Crosby and Von Edwards. After nearly a decade with the band, Tait decided it was time to branch out on his own. ... more

Track Name: Tape (Radio Edit)
Sticky on a one side, slick on another
Ripped to fucking shreds then spliced back together
With tape, ooh with tape
Rolling out from inside, hiding cracks and dividing lines
Adhering to the surface, pasting over imperfections
Like tape, ooh like tape

And there's a big, big hole like a hole in the ground
And where'e there's supposed to be a man, there's no man to be found
There's a big, big hole like a hole in his head
And if that's how it's gonna be, we'd be better of dead

Sticky on a one side but completely invisible
Forging into union that which was divisible
Tape, ooh yeah tape
Placed by many hands in the name of magic
Covering up layer upon layer of the tragic
Like tape, ooh like tape

Cause there's a big, big hole like a hole in the ground
And where'e there's supposed to be a man, there's no man to be found
There's a big, big hole like a hole in his head
And if that's how it's gonna be, we'd be better of dead
There's a big, big hole where the sky's falling down
But if noone's there to hear it, then it doesn't make a sound
There's a big, big wreck but they make a decree
And then they cover it up cause they don't want us to see

Stretch it, cut it, stick it, cover it up (x6)
Track Name: Strange Season (Turbo Moonshine Mix)
Through an open window one day flew out
And another blew right in
It was the most surreal thing
When morning broke we awoke
To collective horror, we had all switched beds
The internet accessed our heads

And we all know how we ended up here
But the pathway out is not so clear
Listen when I tell you dear

It’s a strange season, it’s a strange season…
It’s a strange season, it’s a strange season…

If someone was watching us just imagine how embarrassing that might be
Amusing as it may seem at first
The audience, the suspense
Cameras, action, light and feigned reality
As happy as we'll ever be

All I need is you to pull me through
we will come back better than before
All I need is you to hold onto
And I will never want anything more
