Colin M. Fuzzy, trippy rock that manages to be both calming and energetic. Some of those hooks are monstrously catchy and stick with me long after the album has stopped. Favorite track: Dead Butterfly.

about

Gene Wildest have been spreading their brand of space rock in and around Philadelphia since 2013. Spectral Terrestrial is the 2018 follow-up to their first release, Everything. Spectral Terrestrial marks the first concept album by Gene Wildest and tells tales of loss and returning from the dead to find your way back home to the ones that matter, all on a slushy sea of rhythmic grooves, trippy guitar effects, and fuzzy riffage.

Track Name: The Past Ate You
I hear it on the radio
It's silent in the night
And with me everywhere I go
Until the sun is out of sight

And every time I try to fly, I wonder why I just feel like I've been thrown
Nothing really matters, my reality is shattered, I should just get out of bed, but I don't

Don't let life pass you by
You're just gonna let the past come eat you while you're waiting for the future to die
I sink back into the night
The swan song of the dead and gone
You gave me a sign, and you saved my

I hear it on the radio
It's silent in the night
And with me everywhere I go
Until the sun is out of sight

And everybody thinks I'm crazy, no one wants to hear what I have to say
All the gods are on computers, somewhere far out in the future, and they program everything that we play

Don't let life pass you by
You're just gonna let the past come eat you while you're waiting for the future to die
I sink back into the night
The swan song of the dead and gone
You gave me a sign, and you saved my
Track Name: Marisol
I'm floating backwards in my head
I seem to fall to pieces, heaven stole my friend
As blacker skies unwind to red
I know the nights are long, the goblin song, beginning to the end

Just know the past is over
Just know my mind is gone
I call her sea and solar
Marisol

Lost in the deep, return to me
As darkness falls and time dissolves around me silently
I wait for you beside the sea
As ghosts surround me, try to drown me, try to set me free

Just know the past is over
Just know my mind is gone
I call her sea and solar
Marisol

These rains have brought this fuzz to bloom
Inside the light, the butterfly has found its final womb
I sink into my sacred tomb
Ashes to burn inside this urn as I return to you

Just know the past is over
Just know my mind is gone
I call her sea and solar
Marisol
Track Name: A Flower in a Forest in Bloom
And you'll be
What you wanted
And you'll rise
After you fall

And you'll see
That once you've fallen
That your body
Is nothing at all
A good goodbye

And time
Is undecided
This hour
Has gone to soon

And you'll find
That you're reminded
You're just a flower
In a forest in bloom
Just close your eyes

A good goodbye to send me off to
A good goodbye, not gone too soon
My butterfly, I thought I lost you
Return me to darkness and warmth in your cocoon
Track Name: Modern Day Icarus
Never let my silence sway you
Even now, the end's begun
I can't seem to find a way to
Accept that now it's time to fly myself beside the sun

Good souls are hide to find
Some stranded here and left behind
Sweet child, you remind
Me of myself when I was blind

Leave the sunlight there behind you
Say goodbye forever now
All the love you gave will find you
But who's to say if things will change or matter anyhow

Good souls are hide to find
Some stranded here and left behind
Sweet child, you remind
Me of myself when I was blind

Good souls are hide to find
Some stranded here and left behind
Sweet child, you remind
Me of myself when I was blind
Track Name: Cry Baby Cry
Wow Signal transmission on the radio
Spaceman whistling his favorite tune
The super symmetry of all the fallen meteors
Throwing dead rocks at a shredded super-moon

And I can see you falling to pieces
In a cathedral all alone
And I can hear you talking to Jesus
Reverberating in my bones
Your voodoo is lost in the moonshine
The shapeshifter is growing too old
A flock of ravens, a crow, and a magpie
The dungeon master doesn't do what he's told

Dr. Scientist, Mr. Philosopher, my superego's bent, let me talk to her
A secret freq walking through the door, swollen pickle in your muff, what'd you FM4?
Saw a spectre in the night, yeah I thought I was alone, I used a crystal dagger on a neo clone
And with my last breath, I heard the mothership call to take my bones home and get probed

Cry, baby, cry
Cry, baby, cry
Cry, baby, cry
Cry, baby, cry

Even tides to the depths of an earthquake
Slow ride washed into the unknown
The pinnacle of a death at an arcade
Chasing bliss into a purple sea foam

Big sky silver dragons are flying
Through the caverns and the canyons they've flown
The small sound of a nautila dying
The big sound of Leviathan grown

Dr. Scientist, Mr. Philosopher, my superego's bent, let me talk to her
A secret freq walking through the door, swollen pickle in your muff, what'd you FM4?
Saw a spectre in the night, yeah I thought I was alone, I used a crystal dagger on a neo clone
And with my last breath, I heard the mothership call to take my bones home and get probed

Cry, baby, cry
Cry, baby, cry
Cry, baby, cry
Cry, baby, cry
Track Name: Neck Romancer
I feel compelled to thank you
For bringing me back to life
I've been to hell and sank to
The darkness of the tide
You sang to me from silence
A long forgotten hymn
Return to skies of violet
Awakened once again

I stand barefoot in the rainfall
Feet humbly in the dirt
And when I finished what I came for
Return me to the earth

As time stands still and heartless
I feel your warmth again
But I must return to darkness
This dream is at its end
While bubbles follow me down
The remnants of my breath
I sleep again in sweet sound
The sanctity of death

I stand barefoot in the rainfall
Feet humbly in the dirt
And when I finished what I came for
Return me to the earth
Track Name: Space Fuzz Beyond The Sea
So come on closer, and waste your time
Sink into warmth now, the storm's arrived
Where the meadow is dead and you can find your breeze
Fly out into the night and out beyond the sea

Maybe the wind
Will blow you by
Maybe the wind
Will blow you by
Maybe the wind
Will blow you by
Maybe the wind
Will blow you by

Rolling thunder
Echoes of a heartbeat long forgotten
Rattling bone and memory to the waves
Tremors in the distance, closer, closer
Hark back to depths descended
Within the shackles of an ancient age
Every sound, every touch
The flood, relentless
Never lost, but never found
A flash, a shudder
Dark clouds swell in the distance
Unfurling from that which cannot be quelled

So lay your head right by my side
Return to slime, and we can sleep all night
With all the space fuzz beyond the sea
In the rising tides, we'll find a place to breathe

Maybe the wind
Will blow you by
Maybe the wind
Will blow you by
Maybe the wind
Will blow you by
Maybe the wind
Will blow you by
Track Name: Dead Butterfly
Wither slow my only blossom
How I hate to watch you wait
I found god before I lost him
For what's left of my remains

I left my past in the dark
I never thought my eyes would ever see it
Now I've come back for your heart
And like a butterfly, my return's completed

My only flower beneath the sky
Falling in time with my demise
My last request, my final cry
Forever lie right by my side

Welcome, sweetness, I've been lonely
How I'd love for you to stay
I haven't much to offer
Only wilted stems from this bouquet

I left the dark in my past
I never thought that I would ever see you
But you've arrived here at last
Another wilted flower for my heart to bleed to

My only flower beneath the sky
Falling in time with my demise
My last request, my final cry
Forever lie right by my side

My only flower beneath the sky
Falling in time with my demise
My last request, my final cry
Forever lie right by my side
Track Name: Beauty Over Time
I thought I’d lost you
It seems like all things are far away
Blackholes to fall through
Are all that’s left of my sunny days

Beauty in motion
Blossoms fall all around your face
Under the ocean
Take me down to a darker place

Time will take you someday
You’ll find beauty over
Time will take you someday
You’ll find beauty over
Time will take you someday
You’ll find beauty over

I suppose I overthink too much
But maybe that’s just what they want me to say
I never thought I’d need a hand to touch
But I’m gonna wanna feel you on my dying day

And it seems like I've been dreaming all of my life
I still feel it, but it’s already gone
And I think so much more than my poor head can take
I can wait a little while while I’m wasting my time, just promise that you won’t take long

Time will take you someday
You’ll find beauty over
Time will take you someday
You’ll find beauty over
Time will take you someday
You’ll find beauty over
Time will take you someday
You’ll find beauty over

I've been sleeping outside in your garden since the sunrise
Just waiting for the ultraviolet light to burn away all my dreams
I opened my eyes, it took a while for me to realize
That all the birds and bugs put on a concert that was only for me
Pollen in the sunlight floating in the top of the air
Future flowers that might wind up by my deathbed on the last day I breathe
I smiled for a second, and I wondered whether you would be there
But as a ghost or maggot food, I don’t imagine it would matter to me

Time will take you someday
You’ll find beauty over
Time will take you someday
You’ll find beauty over
Time will take you someday
You’ll find beauty over
Time will take you someday
You’ll find beauty over
Time will take you someday
You’ll find beauty over
Time will take you someday
You’ll find beauty over
