stowi28 A very relaxed and playful tune by this great austrian band. It wins the listener with an almost hypnotic groove. Can't wait to hear the whole album.

"During lockdown I became increasingly aware of small everyday day affairs. Like houseflies. And then deciding whether to try and catch one of them or lick a stone instead. To kill the thirst."
Norbert Wally, The Base


Lick A Stone Kill A Fly

I’m wasting my time
In the sunshine
I wait for the night
To fall

I’m licking a stone
in the meantime
I am pressing my face
Against the window that looks out on the courtyard

Go lick a stone, or kill a fly
Or kill a stone and lick a fly

I’m sending my vibes
To the radio station
Wait for the applause
To swell

I’m wasting my time
In the meantime
I am wasting my time
And I am slowly timing my
Wasting away

Go lick a stone, or kill a fly
Or kill a stone and lick a fly
