about

Nigel & The Dropout Detroit, Michigan

The Detroit based two piece looped themselves into a spacious soundscape filled with soaring guitars clashing with heavily chopped samples, hard hitting percussion, ambient synth and layered vocal harmonies.

A nightmare of tangled cables and dazzling lights illuminate a performance void of the inhuman laptop automation and sequencing seen far too often today.

Everything you see and hear - we do.

Track Name: Gestalt
When the light is on, your lens can breathe

Won’t you come to me, you come to me

When you ask the sky with no return

I want to scream and shout and bring you down



‘Cause the answer clear is nowhere near

It’s in your head not in the air

The reason why is not that hard

You’re just a part, you’re just a part of it

Track Name: Misfire
I never waited around for someone like you to turn me down

I told you once, don’t tell me again 
I told you once, don’t tell me again

I need this place to get me through just one more day without you

It can’t be far, you can’t be far

It can’t be far, you must be



Well I was waiting for a signal in my head

To tell me that you were coming home, you’re coming x 4

Track Name: Pulled Over, Pulled Under
I’m not right it’s my mind

The aching the faking

It seems like the purpose
 is far less and worse than

A left turn, a rug burn

The bed bites, the late night

Seems like the purpose aint worth it, aint worth it



Hold close now the ending is coming, it’s coming

Faster and faster, the blackness, disaster

Tread lightly, it might be too frightening, the light beam

Unconscious decisions, led you astray

The nightfall, the panic, put you in place

The minutes move faster, the seconds your master

The freedom, the mindful, you won’t have, they won’t allow



Hold close now the ending is coming, it’s coming

Faster and faster, the blackness, disaster

Tread lightly, it might be too frightening, the light beam



You’re safe here

With your plastic fork and a light beer

The shallow dreams and nightmares

The ghosts that pull but steer clear

of lost intent and the heartache

the step you want but you won’t take

Left to burn the night away

Left to burn the night

Hold close now the ending is coming, it’s coming

Faster and faster, the blackness, disaster

Tread lightly, it might be too frightening, the light beam
Track Name: Perennial Departure
In the garden where we wait

For the roots to invade us

Like light through the window

It paints and erases


The thoughts you won’t have

Not now, not ever

About things you don’t know

Too much far to clever



To colors you feel

Fake and misleading

Like light from the sun

When the clouds won’t stop bleeding


And the thoughts you might have

Not now not ever

About things that aren’t real

Not now, not ever


Not now, not ever
Track Name: Absentee
I'm overdone
I'm overcooked but far from dull
I think you won
I have my back against the wall

But I gave up
Before I even knew your name
Never enough
'Cause all the people are the same

The soft sound of a voice
asking for a friend
of a hand that can be lend
of a face that won't pretend

It doesn't shout
It won't know how
Learning to fall
Learning to crawl

I found a place
I found a place where we belong
Another face
Another story, sound, and song
Sound and song...
Track Name: Concussive Maintenance
Now that no one is around

Hear the mantra, sing the sound

Let our bodies hit the ground

It’s such a long way down



Hear the screaming, hit the brakes

Hope the blood is only fake

Let the moment see your eyes

Know that they won’t recognize

It’s such a long way down

It’s such a long way down

It’s such a long way down

Track Name: I am a Trampoline
Just because you breathe

Can take a hit and leave

Keep your money keep your shit

I don’t want you, and I don’t want it



Just because you bleed

it’s the hit you need

We ask for patience please

You’re too hungry to feed



Just because you fuck

Down on your luck

It’s the things you crave

That will dig your grave



Just because you hurt

Just to make it work

Doesn’t make it real

Doesn’t make you feel
Track Name: A Night on the Sun
Out of the city and out of the life

Out of your head just not that type

It hits in ways but it’s hard to say

Why I feel how I feel today



Into the walls in your design

Into the corner and into your mind

It sounds wrong but it might be true

But I’m not here when I’m with you



‘Cause you’re sittin’ on your high horse

You’re lookin’ through a telescope

You can’t see, you can’t see me

Spend a night on the sun, you and me



Out of the city and out of the light

Out of your head, just not that type

Sounds wrong but it might be true

But I’m not me when I’m with you



‘Cause you’re sittin’ on your high horse

You’re lookin’ through a telescope

You can’t see, you can’t see me

Spend a night on the sun, you and me

You and me



Softly spoken in between

A piece of foggy memory

Turn the thoughts below the line

Sitting stagnant here in time


When the planets don’t collide

We cannot see what’s inside

The elephant inside our space

This is not a special place

x2
This is not a special place

This is not a special place

This is not a special place


You and me

You and me

You and me

You and me…

Track Name: Patient Memory
When you told me you wanted more

Your sanity was walking out the door

Feelin’ nice with where I’m at

But it’s not the drugs, it’s not



When I feel your indulgent skin

The score is gone, I always win

It’s a rite of passing

Sooner than the messenger



You know that you’re not alone

When you wish that you had never grown

All the knowledge that’s in your head

You’d never have without all your friends


and If you’re feelin’ down

At least you’re still feelin’

and If you’re feeling down

At least you’re still
x2



Even though I didn’t win

The prize is mine It’s no different

Than your sunny disposition

It’s so nice of you to listen

If you’re feelin’ down

At least you’re still around
Track Name: The Works
The circuit’s closing slowly

The pleasure you don’t owe me

You feel beneath your skin

How could this be sin


It finally approaches

Passes you don’t notice

The fires burning, burning

The weak are learning, learning


Take me wait no longer

Body’s weak, but soul is stronger

Soul is stronger
Soul is stronger
