The Sweatervescence has something to say… and they say it with a horn section.

In their debut release, Common Threads, The Sweatervescence tips a hat to artists like Chicago, Earth, Wind & Fire and Jamiroquai. Formed in 2009 under the pen of Tyler Mire and Matt Hill, this group sought to add jazz harmony and texture to a pop format. Playing shows in one of the best towns known for live music, Denton, TX, developed The Sweatervescence a sizable fan base. Downbeat Magazine became hip to the 'Vescence as well, finding a winner for their 2011 award for “Best Blues/Pop/Rock Group.”

I thought being young was refreshing,
but I ain't even on your list
And why are your picks so off my radar?
Please tell him to leave me alone

I thought being old was depressing,
‘cause he ain’t even a good kiss
And why are your picks so off my radar?
Please tell him to leave me alone

If you did start a fight with me
Please don’t try ‘cause I’m 35, I’m 35
If you did want to make things right
Please don’t try ‘cause I’m 35, I’m 35, I’m 35, I’m 35

You thought playing smart would impress me
'Cause if you did I'd let you know
And why are your picks so off my radar?
Please tell him to leave me alone

You thought playing dumb would upset me
‘Cause if you did I’d blow you off
And why are your picks so off my radar?
Please tell him to leave me alone

If you did start a fight with me
Please don’t try ‘cause I’m 35, I’m 35
If you did want to make things right
Please don’t try ‘cause I’m 35, I’m 35, I’m 35, I’m 35

Until you came along I'd been a little vague
my window clouded by the fog machine
I've never seen true love so nicely codified
I know you take me back to a place I haven't seen
When we first met we said "I don't know what I want"
both afraid to dance that grim ballet
if you're still looking for a vision or a sign,
I've got a picture that'll make you wanna stay
Imagine all her loose associations
The warm and hazy memories of youth
This sunlight will be mine and it could be yours as well
Her laughter ringing out as clear as a bell

April, April,
Funny that we've never met,
She hasn't been invented yet,
as far as I know,
April, April,
stormy little cloud of mine,
destinies are intertwined,
wait and see

After all this time we've spent without a care
I find myself desiring something more
I know it's easy to pretend that I'm alright
to tell the truth I'm just as bad off as before
I'm lazing and I’m rotting before a glowing screen
a product of the information age
My debilitating tendency to pry
makes me a victim of the dreadful chronophage

Running as if on a treadmill, haunted by the beast,
I can sense the awful milestone coming fast
But I can see her at the end of the hall
I hope to goodness I'll be right after all

April, April,
she's the one who makes me dance
and love with such significance,
the spring in my walk
April, April,
stormy little cloud of mine,
destinies are intertwined,
wait and see

Since you've up and gone I've been a little down
wondering just how she'll come to be
The mess inside my room is growing all the time
the clothes all piling up but it seems all right to me
I feel like saying that I don't know what I want
but the image is abundantly clear
I can almost hear a voice that tells me to proceed
but I know it’s not the specter's job to interfere

I wonder if the shadow of my opus
made you wander off amidst the wolves
I've got to rectify my place as a man
creation is my duty so I'll do what I can

April, April,
never known her company,
but she blows away the misery,
all the same
April, April,
Stormy little cloud of mine,
destinies are intertwined,
wait and see

April, April,
funny that we've never met,
she hasn't been invented yet,
as far as I know
April, April,
Stormy little cloud of mine,
destinies are intertwined,
wait and see

I saw you there
Looking’ away
What were you thinkin?
What did you want me to say?
You know I’m not so good with words

My mind is blown
Nothin’ to speak
Feelin’ your presence
It makes my body go weak
You know I can’t go through with this

You never called my name and dried your eyes
You wondered if I’d just walk by
But Ms. you know I care for you
You can’t just leave me here

Inside my head
Around my brain
Electrons are sparking
Causin’ me great deals of pain
Your name is just too much for me

You should have told me that you needed to
Spend some time alone and then you’d
Find your way without my help
Leavin’ me behind

If you were here
Locked in my stare
I’d never give in
Never let you out my lair
You’d think I was a bit too harsh

You never looked at me and said goodbye
I wondered if you’d change your mind
But it’s too late to turn the clock
I’ll be waiting here for you

But if you don’t see my point
Then maybe I have gone and lost you
And if you want to see my face
You know I want to see yours too
So who knows what the future
Holds for us and these seeds we’ve planted
I just hope that our love was not a
Fraud a blind Ms. Fire

Distant, your planet is
Solemn, I make my bid

Mystic, your legend is
Finding, what you hid

From me, From me, From me,
You tried to get away
From me, From me

Love that’s hidden
Love that’s not mine
Love that’s not mine
Wastin’ my time

Shaken, my resolve is
Hiding, what you gave

From me, From me, From me,
You tried to get away
From me, From me

Love that’s hidden
Love that’s not mine
Love that’s not mine
Wastin’ my time

From me, From me, From me,
You tried to get away
From me, From me

Love that’s hidden
Love that’s not mine
Love that’s not mine
Wastin’ my time
