about

The latest EP from Madison, Wisconsin rock trio, Sunspot, features tracks inspired by their weekly paranormal and pop culture podcast, "See You On The Other Side" (featured on iTunes' "New And Notable").

"American Monsters" tackles the gaping maw of social media outrage in a classic Midwestern Power-Pop style,"Seeing Is Believing" is a synth-y Disinformation Age conspiracy anthem, and "Push" is a Heavy Metal Mantra for an out-of-body experience.

Track Name: American Monsters
While we were wondering what's under the bed,
there's been something growing we should dread,
and it's getting bigger all the time.
Hairier than Bigfoot's paw,
and scarier than Wolfman's claw,
there's pitchforks out looking for a Frankenstein.

So scream your lungs out,
and look for a way out,
From a mouth starving for something to hate.

Be careful what you say,
be careful not to wake,
the outrage of a beast with a million heads.
These American Monsters will eat you whole,
take your life from your control,
and won't be satisfied until the trolls are fed.

It's a sick chilling effect
watching human lives get wrecked.
they'll set your insides out for a little bait.
It's the mob and it always wins
walking on needles and pins
So you better watch what you say.

Someone's listening,
so say the right thing,
but the right thing changes every day.

Be careful what you say,
be careful not to wake,
the outrage of a beast with a million heads.
These American Monsters will eat you whole,
take your life from your control,
and won't be satisfied until the trolls are fed.

It's never a problem
until you're the one they want to find,
double-check your privilege
or it's your profile on a pike.
They're driving me insane,
The monsters inside my brain.

So scream your lungs out,
and look for a way out,
From a mouth starving for something to hate.

Be careful what you say,
be careful not to wake,
the outrage of a beast with a million heads.
These American Monsters will eat you whole,
take your life from your control,
and won't be satisfied until the trolls are fed.

You better watch what you say.
You better watch what you say.
Track Name: Seeing Is Believing
Disinformation,
we're lied to every day,
Our imagination used
to fool our lizard brain.
The point of distraction,
just a little bait and switch,
Find the ball under the shell,
Who knows? You might get rich

A mothership o'er the Empire State,
A saucer on the White House lawn,
Keep your eyes upon the skies,
and forget you're being conned.

If seeing is believing,
Then I'll get down on my knees,
my head gets cracked,
'tween fiction and fact
We see what we want to see.
our mind plays tricks,
and our eyes transfix,
on what the screen reveals.
Seeing is believing,
but that doesn't make it real.

Check your programming,
you could use a little doubt.
Keep on looking, keep on looking,
further than your eyes allow.

A mothership over the Empire State,
and a saucer on the White House lawn,
Keep your eyes upon the skies,
and forget you're being conned.

If seeing is believing,
Then I'll get down on my knees,
our secret desires,
turn us into liars
We see what we want to see.
Your eyes play tricks,
and your mind transfixed,
to what the screen reveals.
Seeing may be believing,
but that doesn't make it real.

It's the movement in the corner of your eye
can't believe that we have just been taken for
a ride all these years believing there was something more to say,
just pawns of the CIA,
And those bastards get away.

A mothership over the Empire State,
and a saucer on the White House lawn,
Keep your eyes upon the skies,
and forget you're being,
forget you're being,
forget you're being conned.

If seeing is believing,
Then I'll get down on my knees,
my head gets cracked,
'tween fiction and fact
We see what we want to see.
our mind plays tricks,
and our eyes transfix,
on what the screen reveals.
Seeing is believing,
but that doesn't make it real.
Seeing is believing,
but that doesn't make it real.
Track Name: Push
Hot breath on my neck,
I shut my eyes.
Turn all the way inward,
go deep inside.
And my face is wet,
how I want this to be,
anyone but me,
someone else's body.

To push push push away and out of here,
I need to push push push away and out of here.

From up on high,
I can see where I lie,
Some kind of fantasy,
pushed right out of body,

I went so far inside,
I think I lost my mind.
I came out the other side,
that's where I hide.
that's where I hide.

Watching myself now,
somewhere outside my head.
Free of the physical,
But I'm not dead.
Turn away from the scene,
And set off on my own,
into infinity,
beyond divinity.

To push push push away and out of here,
I need to push push push away and out of here.
To push push push away and out of here,
I need to push push push away and out of here.

From up on high
I can see where I lie,
Some kind of fantasy,
pushed right out of body.

I went so far inside,
I think I lost my mind.
Came out the other side,
that's where I hide.
I went so far inside,
I think I lost my mind.
Came out the other side,
that's where I hide.I went so far inside,
I think I lost my mind.
Came out the other side,
that's where I hide.
that's where I hide.
