about

"The music, itself, varies from minimal, clean/reverberated guitar, vocoder drenched vocals, and synthesized seasoning, to clashy drum kits, electronic pop beats, and well-produced, albeit natural sounding catchy vocal harmonies. Take all of the in between that can arise from such possibilities and the endless amount of ideas one or two individuals can fathom, let it sit in a marinade of fluorescent ambience, and you have "&"." - Kyle Patrick via groopease.com

"From the slower jams to the danceable hits, this release is one that shouldn’t be dismissed" - thewildhoneypie.com

"This duo has the potential to create brilliant music." -Nathan Hall via catchyname.tumblr.com

"Indie-electro pop with a particularly urban feel. They have a knack for balancing melodic guitar chords with electo synths, without either one overpowering the other... both mellow and moody, and these two young musicians certainly prove that, yes, you can have a band with just two people. " - theknifefight.com

"They bring to the table a heavy dose of brooding, dark electro pop that brings the all of the nigh time demons to life." - handclapmovement.com

"The epitome of DIY from Farmington Hills." - thesetlist-tsl.tumblr.com

"Brilliant...expect big things." - Brett at Cityslang blogs.metrotimes.com

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: Mister Grief
Lyrics:
I can see the light even though I know it isn't there
I can see the light even though

I can see the light even though I know it isn't there
I can feel your touch even though I know you've dissapeared
I can read your face even though it's just a lonely stare
As I start to wonder what is or isn't there

I'm not here
I'm not here
I'm not here
I'm not here

Please mister misery at least just leave me be
You speak with tongue of mystery
And I don't want to know what you have to say anyway

Who of you can say you've displaced the space you own
Your time on earth is a loan and you'll spend it all alone
If you never grow away from the child of yourself
If you never grow away from the child of yourself

Please mister misery at least just leave me be
You speak with tongue of mystery
And I don't want to know what you have to say anyway
Track Name: Pill
Lyrics:
Found your place inside my trust
He found his place between your legs
I found my place inside your breath
It's where you whispered out his name
Found a pill inside his head
You found a pipe right by my bed
I put it there for you
I put it there for you

The only time we smile is with closed eyes
We always smile as we die
The only time we smile is with closed eyes
We always smile as we die

You found your place inside my trust
He found his knife inside my spine
Hope you make it worth their while
While they're waiting all in line
Track Name: Silhouette
Lyrics:
See your silhouette on the tracks and you're never coming back
Leave it here on the floor in the trash to ignore until tomorrow, until tomorrow comes then pick it up
No one will hold it up against your chest
And bring it up just to see what they say
Hey don't say it like that
As if it really matters
Hey don't say it like that
As if it really matters
Hey!

See your silhouette on the tracks and you're never coming back
leave it here on the floor in the trash to ignore until tomorrow until tomorrow comes then pick it up

It's all for you x1000
I see your silhouette on the tracks and you're never never coming back x2
Track Name: Furniture In Despair
Lyrics:
Sitting alone in a lonely chair
Six broken legs and a lonely stare
Who are you to ask who am I?
When the time is right we'll fly fly die away

Sitting alone in a lonely chair
Six broken legs and a lonely stare
Who are you to ask who am I?
When the time is right we'll fly fly die away

Seen the light now you want to know
Where does it come from where does it go?

Think about what you wanted to be, look in the mirror now what do you see?
What the fuck happened?
x3
Track Name: Expiration Date
Lyrics:
There's really nothing left
There's really nothing left to save
I don't want to say it anymore you had your chance and now it's gone
You had your chance and now it's gone away, away, away

I don't want to say it anymore you had your chance and now it's gone away, away
I don't know if I should compete
I'm just one man with just two feet
I only know I'm stuck right here
Alone without your ugly fear
And if i catch you coming back to me
I'll make sure you leave it be
There's really nothing left
There's really nothing left to save

I don't want to say it anymore you've had your chance and now it's gone x4
Track Name: Proof of Purchase
Lyrics:
Tapered to an alcoholic fetus
You will drown yourself it seems
because you got stung by the birds and bees
If I can't see it, it's not real, what I can't feel I don't know
If I can't see it it's not real, what I can't feel I don't know
I don't

It's not my fault
It's not my fault
It's not my fault
It's not my fault
It's not my

If I can't see it, it's not real, what I can't feel I don't know
If I can't see it it's not real, what I can't feel I don't know

Kneeling at the feet of a decision you barely made
As you begin to fade you wonder
I don't know
Track Name: Causa Sui
Lyrics:
I can see clearly
In the snow
Where my blood will go
When it falls in the fall
And when it rains
I'll feel the pain of tomorrow, today
I'll feel the pain of tomorrow, today
And know what it is to be alone
You can stay with the pimps and whores
And their credit scores
x3

Stuck with myself
In the cold
Where the world is growing mold
Ask a friend if he knows
And with the fear
I hear repeated in some vectors ear
Wait for the blood and snow to clear
And enjoy knowing what it is to be alone
You can stay with the pimps and whores
And their credit scores
