    Dear gang,
    These are two songs off 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!

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: Your Sweet Nothings
Your sweet nothings mean
everything to me.
And your soft lips make me C-R-A-zy.
So close the door but leave on the light.
’Cause I’ve been waiting
just to see this sight.

Oh, the things we’ll do
when we’re in our room,
and it’s just we two …
If only half come true …that'll do.

“Heaven” is a word I use to describe
the way I feel when I look in your eyes.
So close the door but leave on the light.
‘Cause I’ve been waiting
just to take in this sight.
Track Name: The Only Difference
The only difference between death and sleep
is that I get to wake up with you,
and I’ll do anything
to keep this dream coming true.
But the world’s a trap that we can’t crack
and it’ll consume us without remorse.
So I keep your hand in mine
as we try to stay the course.

The tide will come and it will carry me out
but it won’t hear me as I plead and shout.
But if you’re with me as it drags me down,
safe in our bed, I won’t make a sound.
Track Name: The Only Difference (Can You Hear Me Clap?)
The only difference between death and sleep
is that I get to wake up with you,
and I’ll do anything
to keep this dream coming true.
But the world’s a trap that we can’t crack
and it’ll consume us without remorse.
So I keep your hand in mine
as we try to stay the course.

The tide will come and it will carry me out
but it won’t hear me as I plead and shout.
But if you’re with me as it drags me down,
safe in our bed, I won’t make a sound.
