    Dear gang,
    These are two songs* off of what will eventually be our seventh(!) record. We're going to release songs, 2-3 at a time, until everything's been recorded and mixed, at which point we'll release all the tracks in what we fondly remember as the "album" format.
    We're not sure if this will be a physical release; if it is, and you'd like a copy, any money spent on the "singles" we release will be put toward said copy. So, if we have a $11 CD and you spend $5 on downloads, another $6 will get you the CD.
    In the meantime, if you download these tracks as FLACs, you can get them at better-than-CD resolution (24/48)! If you've got a USB port in your stereo, DVD or BD player, you likely can play these files and, if so, we strongly recommend you do so! Thanks for reading this far, and thanks for listening!
    *"Gregorian Cant" may not make it on; we'll see. :)

about

The Jet Age Washington, D.C.

Washington, DC's the Jet Age are a critically acclaimed power-trio about whom writers say things like, "[T]he Jet Age manages to mix the hyper jangle of the Wedding Present with the cruise-control melodies of Swervedriver and the heaven-scraping majesty of the Who circa 1970" (The Onion) and "a heart-pounding rocker … all of the riffs are stellar." (Pitchfork (8.0)) ... more

Track Name: The Ice Is Cracked
Sun sets and the shadows lengthen
and I don’t know if we can stay ahead.
All around us the snow banks crumble;
it’s a miracle we’re not dead.
“Dead!” “Dead!” it’s all I can think of,
the more I love the more I fear.
I’m clutching so gracelessly
at everything that I hold dear.

I’m learning to let go
Take deep breaths
and I’ll fall like snow
into a sleep like I’ve never known.

The ice is cracked from the start,
we’ve got to jump the floes.
Inexorably we’re pulled apart,
but how it ends, everyone knows.
“Disaster!” “Disaster!” it’s all I can think of,
the more I love the more I fear.
I’m clutching so gracelessly
at everything that I hold dear.
