Not my favourite - discuss

It's my fave. But then again, I've only listened to them once.

I think all of the songs are terrific, but this might be my favorite. It reminds me of THE GOLEM.

Yes I agree
But it could also have fit very well alongside Silver Snail

This one is begging for some theremin and EDF touches... I really enjoy this one.

It's my fave of the three. To me it's like the inverse twin of "Serious Curious" off Abbabubba. I like playing them together.

Attempt at lyrics. Any corrections? Thanks.
(edit: corrections applied)

O little cloud
Don't follow me
If I slow down
Keep my head down
Would you leave me be

I had this car
Like twenty years
The pedal stuck
It would not stop
Till I [???] jammed the gears

We pan around
Like hand and glove
We have our trust
Then we combust
And destroy our love

O river flood
Would you let me out
Someplace downstream
Like somewhere clean to dream
In a [???] time of drought

Here's my attempt:

O little cloud
Don't follow me
If I slow down
Keep my head down
Would you leave me be

I had this car
Like twenty years
The pedal stuck
It would not stop
Till I [jammed the gears]

We pan around
Like hand and glove
We have our trust
Then we combust
And destroy our love

O river flood
Would you let me out
Someplace downstream
Like somewhere clean
In a [time of drought]

Thanks, BunsenH. I've now listened to another version (the 16th October performance) and that does seem to be what he sings.

One more thing: "Like somewhere clean" (second to last line) should probably be "Like somewhere to dream".

I love this one - sounds like bluefinger era FB. It is great. Love the guitar in it. I hope it gets the full production.

I recorded this on my iPhone voice memo app. The poor quality adds to the experience. This is a great song. If he's only doing non-solo stuff from now on maybe we can hope for a version of this on the next album.

Also would be cool to hear him / them try out new material live like he often used to do.

BF's latest Instagram post is a 7 second video clip with music accompanied that sure sounds like Cloud (I presume) by Pixies

Yeah definitely O Little Cloud. Dunno if they can top the demo for me - one of my favourite songs.

A bit in the Snakes/Snail vein if you ask me.

Happy new year to everyone BTW !
