about

A bold and beautiful collection of post-modern garage rockers and lush seventies-style piano ballads that the band recorded in their garage studio just may be their best effort to date. And that says a lot coming from the very prolific and experimental group that features the impassioned vocals of Ed Hale and the guitar histrionics of their well known and much respected guitarist Fernando Perdomo. Nothing is Cohesive, the band’s third CD, is raw, unrefined, and surges with an honest musical sensuality that is breathtaking at times. It mixes a variety of classic and modern rock styles in a surprisingly cohesive listen for how far-out the band was willing to travel in their sonic explorations to achieve something completely different from last years Sleep With You.

Transcendence has been enjoying major radio success across the country with their latest hit single "Superhero Girl," while bridging the gap between passionate new-rock with an old-school melodic seventies rock. While their over the top electrifying live performances have been taking indie-music audiences by storm, there has been a slow-brewing flurry of anticipation over their soon to be released new CD entitled Nothing is cohesive. The album’s off the cuff schizophrenia has been described as ‘Radiohead meets Lou Reed or somewhere in between.’ The new CD, which the band recorded in a garage studio with no producer on-hand, may be their most honest work to date.

Track Name: Somebody Kill The DJ
Wonder where they are?
Remember when we all were stars?
We didn’t see it come
The DJs have all become kings
The poets are almost dead
Or now they’re bartenders instead
The artists are underground
Not able to make a sound today

Somebody kill the DJ

Listen [from] where you are
Can almost hear them in the stars
When artistry was king
And rock and roll meant everything
But now its been replaced
They’ve disappeared without a trace
The DJs spin uptown
They don’t write a thing but still they’re paid

Somebody kill the DJ

Singing along
Sing a new song now
The DJ is gone
Sing a new song now
Track Name: Tomorrow
Oh, baby, don't let me down tomorrow,
Holding hands we both abandon sorrow,
Oh, for a chance to get away tomorrow.
Hey, baby's got a lazy dday on sunday,
Here's a pound, we hang around'til monday,
Oh, baby don't you let me down on sunday.
Bring a bag of bread and cheese and find a shady spot beneath the trees.
Catch abreath of country air and run your pretty fingers thro' my hair.
Tomorrow, when we both abandon sorrow.
Oh, baby, don't you let me down tomorrow,
Thro' the week we beg and steal and borrow.
Oh, for a chance to get away tomorrow.
Honey, pray for sunny skies so I can speak to rainbows in your eyes.
Let's just hope the weather man is feeling fine and doesn't spoil our plan.
Tomorrow, when we both abandon sorrow.
Oh, baby, don't you let me down tomorrow,
Holding hands we both abandon sorrow.
Oh, baby, don't let me down tomorrow.
Oh, for a chance to get away tomorrow.
Baby, don't let me down tomorrow,
baby, don't let me down tomorrow.
Oh, don't let me down,
Baby, don't let me down tomorrow.
Baby's, don't let, let me down tomorrow,
baby, don't let me down tomorrow.
Track Name: Caetano
Allow me to take a moment
to illustrate the way I feel
I get so lost in your songs
The sound that you make is so unreal
I hear your voice ringing
I want to rejoice in your songs
Shine like the sun
The people come running when your singing
There you are
The God and the son
The people bow down man
They’re so willing
Man you are the only man
I look up to
I do I swear it

Heaven is shining through you
You can move mountains when you speak
And in your eyes a sunrise
Showing the world what it can be
The people can’t wiat to be near you
Fall to their knees when they hear your voice
Man you’re a God
The power to heal from just your singing
There you are
You shine like the sun
Your song give a voice to your whole country
Man you are the only man I’d make love to
I would I swear it

Passione emocao I nostri cooure
o paixao melodia sensual con su cantando violao nuestras cuerpos coracao o amare celebrecao I nostri corpi o amor o amanti mi amor
Passione emocao I nostri cooure o paixao melodia sensual con su cantando violao nuestras cuerpos
Track Name: Come On
C’mon c’mon c’mon
Coming Coming coming coming
With me
Whenever you’re away
I don’t know what to play
I gotta heart attack
Girl I want you so bad
I see you all over town
I wanna see you go down on me
You’re giving it all away
Lets take tonight and play
Ill take you in my arms tonight
And ill love you till the morning light
Ill watch you shiver when I touch you there
Track Name: All This Is Beginning To Feel Like An Ending
All this is beginning to feel like an ending
When both of us are down
Trying to paint the town
Alone
Waking up everyday alone
Trying to gauge your tone
By your message on the phone
Feeling like a goddamn waterfall
Crying myself to sleep
Just trying to get some peace
But all this is beginning to feel like an ending
When both of us feel so bad
Spend our nights in our beds
Alone
Alone
If you’ll just meet me half the way
I would hold your face in my hands
And float away with you
Earth and sky could melt away
But we would still remain
That’s what we would say
On all those rainy days
When we were still together
And thought we’d last forever
But all this is beginning to feel like an ending
When both of us are sad
Longing for what we had
Alone
Alone
Track Name: Revolution In Me
Imagine no disturbance
Meditating in a garden
To sit and watch a lizard
And smell the fresh gardenias
I walked through Fire Mountain
And came out by a river
I nestled ‘neath a shady tree
And sat to watch a rainbow
Yeah I wasn’t even high
When out of the blue came a voice saying
Jump out of your skin it’s a new day

I see the future and its here
I see the future its so clear
I see the future and its here
I see the future its so clear
Revolution in me

Last night I had a vision
Hovering right above me
I could see it over my head
It was powerful and frightening
I didn’t’ have to strain to see or hear
The sage advice she gave me
The words were just like poetry in my ear
So simple and delightful

Yeah I didn’t even try
When out of the blue came a gusty wind
Sweeping out all the old bring the new in

I see the future and its here
I see the future its so clear
I see the future and its here
I see the future its so clear
Revolution in me

I know you don’t know me
And I don’t know you
But you’re waiting for me
And I’m waiting for you
I know you can feel me
And I can feel you
Just look up to the brightest star baby
And know that I’m looking too
Oh yeah
When out of the blue I’ll come running to you baby
C’mon take my hand
Lets cruise…

I see the future and its here
I see the future its so clear
I see the future and its here
I see the future its so clear
Revolution in me
Track Name: Cleopatra Ecstasy
It was a seven year ride
I barely made it alive
When they finally thawed my frozen heart

She was 20 years old
Or so I was told
I took Cleopatra for a ride

Walking out to my car
Her crazy love’s all I want
Or so I had thought

Baby says she’s alright
As she goes out for the night
Rolling Cleopatra feels so alive

As she dances alone
I sit and wait by the phone
Cleopatra fumbles in her fright

Walking out to her car
My crazy loves all she’s got
But now she’s forgot/she is lost

If I’d only had known
I wouldn’t have left her alone
Maybe I’d have seen her smile once more

After putting her down
Her body under the ground
Cleopatra shines for me no more

Walking out to my car
Her crazy love now has gone
and I feel so lost
Track Name: Softening
I should have known where you were
When I fell down was broke and without a hope
Did you know
I felt like letting go
And was it just a dream
All those nights we promised our love to keep
Did you see did you see
It wasn’t just a dream
I feel it in my soul
I’m opening up and now I am on the road
To be whole
To be whole
I’m letting go
And what’s been happening?
All those nights I cried
I am now relieved
To be me
To be me
I’m softening.
I’m letting go
And I’ll see the truth myself
Evolutionize myself
And rehumanize myself
And I’ll realize myself
And I’ll demonize myself
And I’ll vilify myself
I will crucify myself
And I’ll resurrect myself
C’mon c’mon
Track Name: Bored
I’m so fucking bored
I just can’t believe that I’m stuck in this hell I live in
I’m such a fucking whore
Prostituting my integrity to secure this false celebrity

Kiss me and feel how I feel
Let go of your mind
Don’t waste any more of my time
Thrill me let me know that I’m real
Stop all of your thinking
All your talk is just sinking my mood

I’m so fucking bored
I just can’t believe I found myself in here once more
Its such a fucking chore
To pretend that I am interested
When I don’t give a damn about that

Thrill me take me out of this world
Fill me with pleasure
Prove to me your no ordinary girl
Hurt me
Let me know that I’m real
All your procrastinating is just masturbating my mind
And I’m bored with you wasting my time
My time
My time
Track Name: If Your Baby Could
If your baby could
Your baby would
Hold you forever
If your baby might
Stay all night
You know I would endeavor to

If your baby could
Your baby would
Stay with you forever
If your baby might
Hold you tight
You know I would forever
You know I will forever

Ooooooooooo

You can tell by the light
In/and the look in my eyes
That I just might surprise you
After I’m gone
When you hear this song
Somewhere on the radio
You’ll know
It’s for you
