super-fuzz C-Average are awesome,
III-Times more compelling, Yet massively Monolithic and Mysterious.
They sound like something familiar and strange that
Draws me near and lets my mind change.
Dark matters more than ever. Favorite track: In Trutina.

about

VINYL AVAILABLE:

C Average emerged onto the Olympia independent rock scene in 1996, pummeling the senses of onlookers. For over two decades, their sonic onslaught of medieval riffs and crazed pounding drums has commanded the stage and stereo.

Among the universe’s great mysteries is how a mere two-piece could generate such a powerful, magical noise. Many have also wondered what could C/Average create, if they combined forces with other powerful wizards.

Triumphantly, we wonder no more, with the addition of Olivia Love (lead vocals) and John Boyce (bass). Creating a larger canvas and a more magnificently and elaborately illustrated soundscape, C Average embark on a voyage through the stars and beyond. Passage requires only a willingness to unlock your imagination.

Track Name: Dark Matters
Photons wave and dance across the void
Dust comes together, stars created and destroyed
A complete system that was built by chance or Gods
We scratch our heads in wonder at the odds

Light shatters

I want to know where we come from
Will the pain end when we’re all one?

I look for answers somewhere in the sky
In books, on mountains, the center of my mind’s eye
I push, I let go, I try all I can conceive
But I still don’t know what I should believe

Dark matters

Then something familiar and strange
Draws me near and lets my mind change

And the world lay open, a vast divide
But we had chosen to survive

Now that we’re not young
And gravity has pulled away
Courtesy of our burned out sun
Humanity won’t simply fade away
Track Name: Drifting
Ship commander’s audio journal, 7-12-2119:
We were too late, we were too far away. We received the distress signal, but we were too far away. By the time we reached our solar system, the earth was...gone. Destroyed. Nothing left...but an immense debris field, which were are attempting to scan…

We have rendezvoused with survivors and have been elected to lead the group to safety. This may very well be the last voyage of the human race. I don’t envy the job of our relatively inexperienced navigator, tasked with responsibility of plotting our course...

The threat of disaster is driving us faster
To search for a place we can call home

We killed the place that we called home

The hyperdrive’s blasting, the fuel isn’t lasting
We’re heading toward planets in reaches unknown

Our only hope is the unknown

I know one mistake
Is all that it will take
To send us drifting, without a home
To send us drifting, forever alone

Make your calculations, better make ‘em well
Drifting out in deep space can be a living hell
The ship is not responding to the helm’s command
The engineer is working on a cunning plan

One mistake is all that it will take

We gained too much momentum, we gained to much speed
We will pay the high price for our chronic greed
Forty-thousand light years and we’re drifting, still
We pray that death will take us, on our knees we kneel

One mistake is all that it will take

Drifting

This was bound to fail
We should never have set sail
Left before we knew
Now there’s nothing we can do

Drifting

Drifting alone
