about

Nearly a decade in the making, Custom Floor’s third album, A Distant Dull, rises up from the void. Just one listen reveals a band that has loosened up, stretched out and completely refined their bright yet murky, dreamy yet dissonant heavy rock sound. After two years of recording, Custom Floor eagerly unleashes 10 songs filled to the ebbing outer edges with mellow reverb-drenched vocals, droning keyboards and Ebowed guitars, ringing octaves, minor chords and heavy Big Muff stomp. Generous helpings of overloaded feedback psych, free improv, minimalism and ambient atmospherics round out the proceedings, which is all supported by a hard-pulsing rhythm section of sensitive yet rock solid drumming and deep, blobbing bass. Explore the many splendored realms of A Distant Dull.

Track Name: I'll Pay Your Dues
As solid as a cloud.
A shy man getting loud.
A failure feeling proud.
Oh, wow.

Colors, swirling hues.
You know I'll pay your dues.

Whenever more is less,
create a nice, neat mess.
It's for sure, I guess.
Oh, yes

Colors, swirling hues.
You know I'll pay your dues.

Ignore the explosion.
An atom weighs a ton.
A really evil nun
with a gun.

Colors, swirling hues.
You know I'll pay your dues.

Track Name: A Distant Dull
A distant dull.
A glass half-full.
An empty slate.
A lifetime wait.

Jerk a tear.
Cry in beer.
A winding road.
Another mode.

Lyrics ©2005 Garry Davis / Rungless Ladder Music
Track Name: Black Hole
There's a highway wrapped around my head
leading to nowhere.
There's a feeling stuck through my gut
that I just might get there.
There's curtain pressed across my eyes
spoiling the view of new.

There's a flash of light around my space
coming into me.
It's origin is every point
of infinity.
I soak it up, nothing escapes
disassembly of reality.

Lyrics ©2005 Garry Davis / Rungless Ladder Music
Track Name: Ethereal
Pass through, don't fear.
It's painless, I'm here.

In the light.
All love.

The ghost, give up.
Just coast beyond.

Tomorrow.
Forever.

Lyrics ©2005 Garry Davis / Rungless Ladder Music
Track Name: A Walk in the Sun
A walk in the sun,
havin' fun.
Oh, yes!
A skip through the woods,
ran into some hoods.
Oh, no!

A run in the rain,
ankle sprain,
a pain.
Tiptoe through tulips,
Drink sips,
backflips.

Lyrics ©2005 Garry Davis / Rungless Ladder Music
Track Name: Distance
I'm moving, but I'm much too slow.
Stuck in here, I gotta go.
You pick it up, I drop it down.
My smile is drooping to the ground.

Distance.
Right here.
Everywhere.
Come near.

I'm growing, I'm having pains.
You're sunny, I'm soaked in rain.
It's so far, it's a curse.
Center of the universe.

Distance.
Right here.
Everywhere.
Come near.

Lyrics ©2005 Garry Davis / Rungless Ladder Music
Track Name: Dream Girl
Your G-string's out of hock.
You're blasting classic rock.
All you have on is a sock.

Dream girl
in hot pants,
I need a lap dance.

Implants all the rage.
It's your turn up on stage.
You look older than your age.

Dream girl,
Float to me,
So ghostly.

Lyrics ©2005 Garry Davis / Rungless Ladder Music
Track Name: Hot Plod
[Spoken] I can't do any more recording.
Track Name: Regular Rock
Come out today.
Sun-splashed, it's time to play.
Have some fun, you might die today.

Come out tonight.
Downtown, it's all right.
Dance away, you might die tonight.
