Chinchilla 03:12
We sit there just chilling you're wearing chinchilla I think that you’re definitely drifting out of my reach Your dog in the middle the wrong kind of poodle I think that you're definitely keeping us both on a leash And you've got a lot of nerve and maybe you're right but I'm going home tonight My sisters, they love me they win at Monopoly they tell me their favorite moments of Saturday Night One day I'll bring a bouquet for each day that I've been away And you’ve got a lot of nerve and maybe you're right but I'm going home And you’ve got a lot of game and a cab outside but I'm going home Tonight, there's a darkness in your eyes Yes, there's a darkness in your eyes yes, there’s a darkness in your eyes so I'm going home tonight

Midnight 03:57
How you gonna go and introduce me as your friend when I'm the greatest love of your life? Thought we'd be together for a million days was I wrong or just not right? Midnight full of cabernet fat chance that I’ll ever stay I'm a light light light light weight in your eyes I'ma wait wait wait wait while you change your mind Steering New York City like your own private car you were buying more than just time There’s gonna be many a night in your life you’ll be wishing that you had my light A line means no I know Morse code Midnight full of cabernet fat chance that I’ll ever stay I'm a light light light light weight in your eyes I'ma wait wait wait wait while you change your mind, oh The mansion was haunted I took the Taconic I wish we were on it just one time My memory is water a thief with no honor I wish that we caught her just one time So what does it take for me to get close to you? and what does that make me? a prostitute

We’ve got the blue bloods and we’ve got the blue collars so what do we need to get you summoned? We’ll keep the gates open and stream your movies I wish you were here with your bowl of cherries Summon the likes of a friend of mine if we align in a line sometime Summon the ghost in a wedding toast if we align in a line sometime You had so many branches you looked like a tree but you’re not in our forest, therein lie the mystery West side is better with you Summon the likes of a friend of mine if we align in a line sometime Summon the ghost in a wedding toast if we align in a line sometime And I wonder if you’re lost and I hope you’re not in flux And I wonder if you’re lost in time Summon the likes of a friend of mine if we align in a line sometime Summon the ghost in a wedding toast you're gonna lose what you love the most

Packed your one clean dress and a letter to address Jesus, what a mess, remember us Is this all a phase? You just wanna see it wash away But you’re wide awake on a Megabus Light my candle in a jar I know you can’t be very far However late they got you staying up tonight I know you’ll be a star Don’t expect you to read me like you read the room Raid me like a tomb and I’ll adjust Light my candle in a jar I know you can’t be very far However late they got you staying up tonight I know you’ll be a star Light my candle in a jar I know you can’t be very far However late they got you staying up tonight I know you’ll be a star Hey, I know you’ll be a star Hey, I know you’ll be a star The weight that you feel, it’s real The weight that you feel, it’s real Is there something I can do with my eleven balloons?

Potions 03:33
Last time I saw you, you sawed me in half You’re such a magician, you should be wearing a scarf And you’re cooking up potions to keep us together Do you think that your mandrake could help us fight better? Got a splitter of headphones, the merger of brains We’ve done it before so can we do it again? With our backs on the floor and our faces lit up And your parents, they knocked, but we had nothing to hide If you haven’t felt scared then you haven’t felt loved But what if I’m scared for us? The math doesn’t add up Cause you’re cooking up potions in more ways than one And the light in our bedroom now weighs a ton Got a splitter of headphones, the merger of brains We’ve done it before so can we do it again? With our backs on the floor and our faces lit up And your parents, they knocked, but we couldn’t be stopped The splitter of headphones, it may be too late We’ve done it before so why can’t we do it again? With our backs to the wall and nothing left in our cups And your parents they called and called and called but we didn’t pick up

Bonfire 02:16
Toss me right into the bonfire like I’m an old moon I want the Academy to remember me soon Lately I’ve been pessimistic, what else is there to be? I want to slide open the sliding door And sink into the sea of jackets and coats piled high on the bed where no one will find you and me And lie to everyone and say we’re just friends but when they turn away we’ll be touching our pinkies again If you were a violin and I was a bassoon, we’d make a bad orchestra but a good band, we could charge just for watching us tune And fade into the fog of confectioner’s sugar we’re sharing to follow along with the chefs on TV And die It might not be that bad, just think about it We could travel for free to Norway or nowhere at all, we don’t know what we’ll be It’s a toss-up It’s a toss-up

Iron Wolf 02:56
On the worst night of winter I lay awake with my arms at my sides I'm not a confident sleeper, I get nervous when I close my eyes I heard the tap water swirling and I remembered our swirls in the park I heard a whistle in the wool, the iron wolf roused me up If you don't mind, I'll run with your business plan I'll get on the plane if it takes the pain away So I chewed through the ranks and I handcuffed myself to my case And I reached for your tail, if you fall then I'm taking your place But firebirds burn most beautifully under the sea And if you plucked all your feathers you'd still fly higher than me If you don't mind, I'll run with your business plan I'll get on the plane if it takes the pain away If you don't mind, I'll run with your business plan I'll get on the plane if it takes the pain away If you don't mind, I'll run with your business plan

The city of twins, why do I miss you? As far as I recall, all that you gave me was a bicycle helmet surprise It’s nobody’s business if you’re small as long as you’re in it for the longest haul We were a miracle on ice But when at night you go to bed remember me instead I’ll pull my coat off in the snow I hope that you enjoy the show The city of twins, I’m gonna flip it You’re gonna miss me, who’s gonna christen your body with Nordeast? I used to be scared of every snare, of hearing your heartbeat in my inner ear. There is nothing but Midwest And when at night you go to bed remember me instead I’ll pull my coat off in the snow I hope that you enjoy the show Cause when at night you go to bed remember me instead I don’t wanna see you, don’t wanna CC you I know when it’s time to go

Joan of Arc 02:23
If you have a nightmare, you come straight to me I will overcompensate and kiss you til you sleep It’s probably excessive and you’re your own adult But I will tell you fairy tales about the Joan of Arc And all we need to fight the dark is a mirror and some light My friends got into lightning bugs — I’d rather they be sparks You hang on my every word like a magazine I can tell and so sometimes I roll up and disappear I know that it’s unlikely cause the multiverse is cruel But I could find you anywhere and lay right next to you And all we need to keep us warm Is a blanket and some rye My friends got into drinking games — I’d rather we not play
10.
Storm Queen 04:18
I’ve got a number for an old Manhattan bank The lenders won’t answer, it’s too late, and I bet they’re spent and while we’re on hold, we’ll put the speaker on and I will hold you to their song There’s barely a soul on Wall Street when we break the door If nobody hurts our feelings, then no one gets hurt We drive past the cops, our bags a heavy load Don’t believe a word they say - we can make this getaway But when you’re a driver, you can’t see eye to eye, promise me that you’ll take us home this time. When you’re a driver you can’t see eye to eye, promise me that you’ll take us home Cause the only thing that gives me hope is that when we’re gone, the dollar will stay strong Stay strong, stay strong, my friend, stay strong Remember the night we walked across the Beacon Bridge? We followed the swallows to their nest along the beach You said you’re some kind of Storm Queen, we should go If we make it out alive, we’ll come back another night
11.
Watermelon 03:44
Sidewalk smells like watermelon where grandma said I’ll go to hell and I have never been so jealous of ordinary names Too young to turn down a kiss in the kitchen too poor to afford a rotisserie chicken I catch and release a friend from a movie I catch and release a friend from a book I’ll be someone else next time we move Grandma found a tape of standup and she won’t tell me when the end is she says I’ll never understand it she says I’ll never understand it Too young to hold down a job at the Target too poor to afford a ticket for parking I catch and release a friend from a movie I catch and release a friend from a book I’ll be someone else next time we move I’ll be someone else she’ll be someone else and you’ll be someone else too

about

Dreamboat, the second full-length album by Bring Prudence, doubles down on the sound Zaychenko calls “folk resuscitation.” Beginning with a few seconds of glistening ambient tones before slipping into a gentle stream of pianet, bass, and brush drums, the opener has him conceding, “my sisters they love me, they win at Monopoly.” Dreamboat, released on Zaychenko’s own Brilliant Green Records, is a tender and airtight album, breaking into folk-rock at times, at others shimmering with the subtle textures of chamber pop — an immediate and poignant story told by a wide cast of characters.

The 33-year old Ukrainian-born songwriter has expanded upon the foundation of his stripped-down debut LP Red Horses (2016), reuniting with former Pursued By a Bear bandmate Julia Brown (Barrel Flash) on backing vocals. Initially tapped as a mixing engineer, multi-instrumentalist and producer Damon Waitkus (Jack O’ The Clock, Ventifacts) ended up contributing pianet, mandolin, vocals, atmosphere, and Jason Molina-esque slide guitar. “I may be an only child, but I had a blast working with a team of musicians who are better than me on this record,” says Zaychenko. The album also features Paul Collins (Beirut) on bass, Will Matsuda on drums, Jordan Barhydt on piano, and Juliet Jacobs on violin.

Zaychenko sings of magical thinking, disintegrating relationships, childhood loneliness, and sacrifice, sprinkling in some business jargon and Ukrainian folklore characters. The cover art, a twist on the cosmological exterior panels of Bosch’s “Garden of Earthly Delights,” is a composite of those themes and characters. Created by visual artist Jess Hock, the cover incorporates hand-drawn, digital, and photographed elements into a dreamlike display.

“Music is a form of time travel,” says Zaychenko, “and Dreamboat is soaked in memories — some real, some absurd — but what I love about this album is they’re not just my memories this time.”
