about

At the BILDES 2010 festival, STandART performed the track together with the Latvian singer-songwriter Goran Gora. Afterwards, it was decided to make also a studio recording of the new version.

"STandART has many cards up their sleeve, a few of which being the soul crushing vocals and music following the traditions of honest analogue synthpop.”
- Anders Melts, “Body Machine Body” festival organizer, Estonia

Track Name: Autumn News (feat. Goran Gora)
AUTUMN NEWS

Lightly descending autumn news
Is whirling away in a dance
Conveying ominous signals
Throwing raindrops in my face

Hoar frost covers my stubbled chin
Tiny needles prick the tip of my nose
I prepare myself for sleep
I’m winterized

Lightly descending autumn news
Is tapping over the top of the leaves
Over the moorland and the blueberry fields
Are falling most safely kept dreams

Lightly descending autumn news
Has buried my hatchet in a leaf-mould heap
The battle is lost; I’m supposed to give in
To the drizzling rain and the freezing wind

Lifting me up, and dashing me down
Throwing me through uncountable branches
Tossing through thousands of leaves lying on the ground

I’ve got the greatest reward, being carried right past me
All that’s left is just an odour of loss
I’m forced to sleep in my rustling arbour
In pillows of moss, silently rotting off

Lifting me up, and dashing me down
Throwing me through uncountable branches
Tossing through thousands of leaves lying on the ground

The autumn consolidates its positions
Blowing away the warmest thoughts in skeins
We get old fast, what if instead of restarting
We’d try once reaching the very end

I’ve got the greatest reward, being carried right past me
All that’s left is just an odour of loss
I’m forced to sleep in my rustling arbour
In pillows of moss, until defiance returns

The autumn consolidates its positions
Blowing away the warmest thoughts in skeins
We get old fast, what if instead of restarting
We’d try once reaching the very end
Track Name: Rudens Vēstis (feat. Goran Gora)
RUDENS VĒSTIS

Viegli nolaižas rudens vēstis
Un aizvirpuļo dejā prom
Atnesot ļaunas zīmes
Sejā lietuslāses iesviežot

Manus bārdas rugājus pārklāj sarma
Sīkas adatiņas degungalā dur
Es gatavojos miegam
Kļūstu ieziemots

Viegli nolaižas rudens vēstis
Pakšķinot klusi pār rūsganām lapām
Pār mellenāju un viršiem
Visrūpīgāk glabātie sapņi krīt

Viegli nolaižas rudens vēstis
Un zem sevis manu kara cirvi slēpj
Kauja ir galā, mani rokas paceļam gaida
Smidzinošs lietus un saldējošs vējš

Ceļot mani augšup un triecot pret zemi
Metot caur tūkstošiem kailu zaru
Svaidot pa neskaitāmām lapu kaudzēm cik spēj

Man ir vislielākā balva aiznesta garām
Viss, kas šeit atlicis, ir trūdu smārds
Čaukstošā lapenē dzen mani uz ziemu
Sūnu spilvenos līdz atgūsies spīts

Ceļot mani augšup un triecot uz leju
Metot caur tūkstošiem kailu zaru
Svaidot pa neskaitāmām lapu kaudzēm cik spēj

Aizpūšot kāšos domas, kas silda
Rudens nostiprinās te uz ilgu
Mēs novecojam ātri, kā būtu reiz
Nevis no jauna sākt, bet iet līdz galam un beigt

Man ir vislielākā balva aiznesta garām
Viss, kas šeit atlicis, ir trūdu smārds
Čaukstošā lapenē dzen mani uz ziemu
Sūnu spilvenos līdz atgūsies spīts

Aizpūšot kāšos domas, kas silda
Rudens nostiprinās te uz ilgu
Mēs novecojam ātri, kā būtu reiz
Nevis no jauna sākt, bet iet līdz galam un beigt
