about

Thaddeus Lowe Brooklyn, New York

DIY blog Dingus first stumbled on Thaddeus Lowe's single, when he released his debut solo record acclaimed Boston blog Alston Pudding placed Against the Waves on their October Mix Tape. Despite the interest of the online community, it wasn't until solo artist Nadeem Salaam returned to his hometown of Brooklyn NY that the project formed into a full band.

Track Name: The Carpenter's Son
My son
Thaddeus
You're broken and you're faithless
(You're fine, fine, fine)
It's one thing
To know it all
and be a fool
(and be a fool)
and sing it all!
-break-
Track Name: Against The Waves
I was born on the first day of the year
The people were walking through the streets alone
bring me back to the place
I was never alone to begin with (the place where there was no pain)
I was born on the first day of the year
the houses and church bells, and children were
singing in the streets
I was born on the first day of the year...
-break-
You move against me like a wave, you walk on air...
You move against me like a wave, you walk on air...
You move against me like a wave, like a wave
like a wave, live a wave, like wave...
Track Name: Thyme & Winter Wind
It has been a harsh unforgiving winter
tormented by unforgiving winds & record high snow fall

-ENTER THE WOMEN-

She seduces him with the charm of an angel, virtue like Joan of Arc, and the beauty of Aphrodite

The screen has been set but before the two may reap the fruit of the luscious harvest, they too must withstand the monsoon...

It's
been
a
long
long
way
down...
Track Name: Birds They Fly
{I'll never, never let you go... I won't let you go}

The sun rises overhead!
the kids would look out and run under the sky

they would come out and play...
and run under the skies...
Track Name: Stars They Align
Finally I've come here to notice with my wings cut, I never minded the fall... If Summer is about free love, Winter, is about intimacy. All things come to actualize in the milk and honey after the mud washes over....

Hypnotized by the stars laying down in Washington Heights on a rock carved out by New York's last ice age. They're burning brighter as this evening sun is sinking down...

This Horizontal view shakes me from my big toe to the tiny space between my brow...
Track Name: Our Love Is Holy [INTRO]
The calm of the ocean air soothes him...

he smears himself in honey and touches the divine

colours bending from the dew

wouldn’t it be great?

if the rays could find their way to our skin?

lifting us up into the sky…

spinning and spinning till the sunrise

moisture in our hands clasped so tight!

a vision like no other tonight

pass the fire!

pass the fire!

envision no other desire

see the child in you parting ways

left to all those better days

see the life, see the sound

taste the colour as we return to the ground

pass the fire...

a revelry in the new me...
Track Name: Our Love Is Holy [Pillows of Smoke]
Our love is holy
your eyes staring back at me...
pillows of smoke have filled my heart

our love is holy
hold me tightly
won't you please beseech me?

Behold,
I bellow in your body
A beast you cannot tame!
So take, take, take, and take me in

our love is holy
hold me tightly
won't you please beseech me?
you cannot tame (cannot tame)

our love is holy...

our love is holy...

our love is holy...
Track Name: The River & the Creek (My Son)
There's a cloud of memories
that waft up into the air...
surrounding me, far back into time...
I love when rain hits that pavement
there's a cloud of memories
that waft up into the air
my soul...
surrounding me...

We would go down to the river...
we would go down to the river...

Son, we would go!
& remember...
My son, we would go & remember...
Track Name: It's Winter Time Again & We Return To the Sea... [OUTRO]
The origin, support, and end of all.
