about

HellLP is Spivkurl's twelfth full length release, and is the culmination of fourteen months of composition and recording. Many of the instruments used in these recordings were designed and build by Spivkurl himself. All lyrics, songwriting and vocal recording were courtesy of Spivkurl. The album explores psychological trauma, domestic terrorism, naturalism, activism, psychedelia and the collective unconscious, the results of social media in our culture, and an examination of the infection of our culture by unknown influences with unknown motives. There is deep undercurrent of fear and anger, with a top note of hope and a call for change. Pain and pleasure in one. Meant to be felt as well as heard - Turn it UP!

about

Spivkurl Rochester, Minnesota

Spivkurl technically began around 2001, but has been heading this way for a long time. Numerous head injuries, radioactive playgrounds, addiction, shamanism, and Love have all played their part. I build, modify, and re-purpose. I make music with what I create, as opposed to just creating music. Genres are not important in what I do, only experience, feeling, and spontaniety. Spiv makes Spiv music. ... more

Track Name: Lovin' It
I am
Hatin everyone
and lovin it
Taking this shit
and shovelin

Takin extra drugs
and bufferin
Sittin so high
Sittin 'bove it

Feeling this heat and
I'm bein' the beat
Don't think this is cheap
I'll freeze to my seat
And I'll covet it
I am sufferin'

Takin' all your stuff
and shuttin' it
Hatin' every bit
I'm discoverin'
Takin' lotsa drugs
and strugglin'
Makin' my mind
up stutterin

I'm feelin' so neat
I'm bein' the beat
Don't think this is cheap
You'll discover it
While recorverin'
I am Sufferin'

Feeling this heat and
I'm bein' the beat
Don't think this is cheap
Freeze to my seat
and I'll covet it
I am sufferin'
I am different
Track Name: P.B. and Grace
The future is interface
chemical smell interlaced
Keep on keepin on this shit
subtle lies are in your face

Living now is just a vibe
your lack of time has contrived
Blow your mind and blow a kiss
Holy dollar mother of law
Full of grace
Full of waste

Drug testing is my sixth sense
cuz you're bouncing like bad checks
Did you hear what you just missed?
I'll give you another taste
Track Name: Traffic Jam
uh ohhhh
Track Name: Snake In The Past
We are the future
If there is one at all
We are the future
If there is one at all

I am an act of war
Seems I'm not needed anymore
Like the cudgel or the sword
or the life that came before

You are the act of cowardice
Destroyed the things I miss
It seems too late to fight
History has reached it's night

But I am still alive
I remember all the time
No matter what I buy
I can't forgive this crime

We are the future x3
If there is one at all

We were the future
We continue to stall
We were the future
We continue to stall

Though we have the time
There's a limit in our mind
To this we are a slave
Now we have a chance to change

We are the future x3
If there is one at all

Out of the picture
You're far too small

Snake in the past
will remember it all

Snake in the past
Snake snake in the past
Snake in the past
Not meant to last
Track Name: Stealth Matriculation
It's about feeling old
Too hot or too cold
It's a lost feeling
being caught in the fold
It's about what you chose
Letting old doors close
and one you need to open
though the keys were stolen

stealth matriculation
I'm just a
stealth manipulation
self manipulation
on a permanent
vacation

It's about looking back
While you're running away
doors that you leave cracked
So you have a place to stay

Got somethin to say

stealth matriculation
I'm just a
stealth manipulation
self manipulation
on a permanent
vacation

It's the sound of being told
that you're not okay
Even though you see worse
almost every day
About something to hold
and something to say
Got to say stay bold
All we've got is today

You'll be okay
Track Name: Claws In Me
Claws in me
the name I keep
Always in me
even in my sleep
Never see
what's in front of me
Comfortably
Nestled in my grief

Got your claws in me
but you can't hurt me
you give me what i need
and change the way I see

Got your claws in me
scraping with your teeth
see how much I bleed
shallow sometimes deep

Claws in me
glad to pay a fee
Nothing's free
but it ought to be
changing me
to pay the thief
begging me
to be complete

Got your claws in me
Got your claws in me
Got your claws in me
Got your claws in me
Shallow sometimes deep
Got your claws in me
Got your claws in me
Got your claws in me
Got your claws in me
Shallow sometimes deep
Track Name: WhatsGoing
What's going on?
Nothing you say.
Change.
But still stay sane.

What's going on?
Nothing has changed.
What's going on?
Too long with the trouble.
What's going on?
Almost nothing has changed.
What's going on?
Can I forgive this unforgivable?
Track Name: Modern Disease
My sound is spread thin
Many hundreds of feet
And don't forget the miles
I walk along the street
Reach reaching out again
Like the roots of a tree
Deeper than you'd think
And what you believe
You can't deny the sight
And sound of my leaves

My town is less than
What I really now need
I can't forget the signs
That the street can't see
Freaking out again
I like losing the need
Seeing nothing to drink
Looks like I can't leave
You can't deny the fight
And the sound it completes

Not bound to my kin
I'm trying to believe
I can't forget the crimes
That will be never seen
Sitting in my skin
Like it's so sun bleached
Smoking what I need
To let conditions be
I can't deny the smell
Of the modern disease

Don't keep the peace
It's a modern disease
Don't keep it clean
It's a modern disease
Don't ask me please
This is a modern disease
You just can't see
It's a modern disease
It's a modern disease
This is a modern disease
Track Name: Premonator Ft promenade2239

Premonition

adds a glow to what you've done

glad to know you're in condition
premonition

adds a glow to what you've done

and here it comes

Premonator

A Taste of what's to come
Premonator
Has a glimpse into the sun
Premonator
A taste of what's to come
Premonator
Has a glimpse into the sun
sun sun here it comes
Track Name: You Are Never Alone
I was walking through my town
This city I call home
Trying not to meet myself
Imagine I'm not alone
Only burnt brown hurt I's shown
So close to what's mine own
Decided to keep my health
And to protect what is sown

Protect what is sown
Collect what is grown
Reject what is owned
You are never alone

I kept stalking on my ground
It was shocking what I found
Tried to see the scenery
Picture all this broken down
Looking for what is around
Anything to be taken down
Mass assault decidedly
And this will not be my fault

Protect what is sown
Collect what is grown
Reject what is owned
We are shaking the throne
You are never alone
We are taking the throne
You are never alone
You are never alone

I was talking with my sound
Talking is so difficult
When I'm talking to myself
This to you I have shown
The only they will control
Only hear what they want to know
You don't want them to help
When you change your fate and soul

Protect what is sown
Collect what is grown
Reject what is owned
You are never alone
We are shaking the throne
You are never alone
We are taking the throne
You are never alone
We are changing control
