    Please note that you can order this record as a 24/48 FLAC download. If your stereo, BD or DVD player has a USB slot--or if your computer supports 24/48 FLAC playback (it likely does)--you might be able to hear the record at the same resolution we were listening to when we were mixing and mastering, which mean it’ll sound even better than the CD! (Which will sound better than the mp3s.) If you’re not sure how FLAC files work, please do a little research before ordering, just to make sure it’s the right format for you. Thanks, and enjoy!

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: Don’t Make a Sound
I wanna ride with you to the other side, while the world’s still wide and the sky’s still blue. I don’t want to hide—it could be brand new; things can change if we want them to (and I do). We said it once, it’s always been true: you’re for me and I’m for you. Lying in bed I could hear you sing. Times like this I think we could do anything. Come back to bed and take off that gown. The kids are asleep, don’t make a sound.
Track Name: I Wrote You This Song
Went down to the BC, trying to waste some time; saw you dancing to the slow songs so I got in line. When you put your hands on my hips, it felt like I was flyin’, and when you put your mouth to my lips I knew you would be mine. I wrote you this song so you’d know it hadn’t been so long that I could forget how it was when we first met. And that time won’t come ‘cause you struck me dumb and I still love you like my heart’s on fire and I always will. Bought a home that needs fixing, but you know that we’ve got time. And sometimes some reminiscing makes it easier to find the will to lift your hands, remember what you want, to love the one that you’re with, to cherish what you’ve got. And I sing so you will know my song. And I sing so you will sing along.
Track Name: It Cuts Both Ways
In the dying embers I finally surrender; sometimes we forget what we need to remember. So pull back the sheets and slide in with me, and tell me the truth at the count of three. You know those words cut both ways, baby. And now that we’ve said all that needs to be said we can have it all, right here in our bed.
Track Name: The World Is Bigger Than My Two Hands
I had a dream: I heard you scream—I leapt up to see what was wrong. I couldn’t find you, I checked for the kids and they were gone. The world is bigger than my two hands, I’m not a leader, I’m not a hero, I’m just a man. But if I can’t save it then who can?
