... yeah i played everything actually( except the bassline on drugdealer. my brother chris who was in days away played that) . even the synthesized stuff. theres maybe 5 % of the record that is programed. the rest is all real performances. most of the beats are done manually believe it or not. i would strip down to just the vocal. write a bass or synth part to it. then alot of the times record a track of me playing real drums to find a new feel for the tune. once i did that id start layering sounds (guitars, keys, tambourines ertc) and mixing as i went. then id add electro drum samples to it track by track... like... find a kick sound and then hit record.... do all the kick patterns manually with my hands on a drum pad(depending on the key board) then record a track of snare sounds.... hi hat etc etc. sounds ridiculous but i did this so that the songs would feel more organic and bandish  and less like traditional electronic music that is programed and mechanical sounding. in the digital art that comes with the remixes i list what i added and left for each song. i also wrote a few paragraphs about the subject of manual tracking versus programing. anyway... sorry to ramble. be well.

Anthony Green - Avalon Lyrics

01 - She Loves Me So
I keep writing myself into ruts it's all around us get naked and get into bed right away keep
writing myself into rust that makes it all seem so much harder but soon you'll be far away
so just keep your lonely hands in your pockets and fold away all your best clothes i'm only
truly happy if i know she loves me so...

Anthony Green - Vocals, Guitar, Bass, Keyboards & Glockenspiel
Tim Arnold - Drums


02 - Dear Child (I've Been Dying To Reach You)
Dear child they'are asking us to move i watched her taking off her shoes let the short tide
take you in i'm weary, not quite rested yet this could be obvious to you let the shore tide take
you in the this shore tide we've been spreading in i've been trying to reach you but your
extension chord doesn't reach that far i've been patiently waiting the indicator light is
flashing on dear sleeper you could'nt find a better bed - I love to watch the way you grove
and we're out the door in this shore tide we've been spinning in i've been trying to reach you
but your extension chord doesn't reach that far i've been patiently waiting the indicator
light is flashing in this coma sleepless dancing we've been spreading in i've been dying to
reach you but your extension chord doesn't reach that far i've been desperately waiting the indicator light is flashing on

03 - Drug Dealer
If you allow something so unnecessary to get you down there's no one else to blame i need
something stronger something extra strength - I've millions of materials to trade if you came
around enough you'd be like a god to us like a drug dealer all sold out of trust but you threw it
all away i used to mind that everyone i know seems to hate themseleves but i do it as well we need
something stronger something extra strength i've millions of recordings that i've faked if you
could offer only love you'd be like a god to us like a drug dealer all sold out of trust but you
threw it all way like a fool's healer or tarot card reader but you throw it all way

Anthony Green - Vocals & Guitar

04 - Stone Hearted Man
I know you spent your money to see what you hear on cd they say what kills the soul will
make it harder but you can't be a stone hearted man, this isn't just a waste of time
addictions made me stronger but you can't be stoned all the time do you realize that you
apologize when it's not your fault cause we're all fucked up and do you really think that it's
worth it to be all worried about time cause i know what you want or i think i know

05 - Baby Girl
baby girl twist away when you're talking to me i can't breathe set sometime aside to say why
don't you stay ten yours later i still feel like a child you're the one. I know you are this
common feeling ends when you enter not many cigarettes left think i'll wait till you get
back till you arrive to be relieved i want to i want you're the one i know you are meredith i
miss you whenyou go anywhere so lovely she still loves me

Anthony Green - Vocals, Guitar, Bass, Keyboard & Bells

Keith Goodwin - Additional Guitar

06 - Miracle Sun
Where do you go when it gets dark and is there room for me there how long will it take you to
wake up before you go will you wake me or i'll sleep all day (and miss everything) miracle

us. We don't want to be left alone

Anthony Green - Vocals, Guitar, Bass & Bells

07 - Califone
Come and you will find here the roses have lost their glow the band played for too long
tonight the soldiers their strengths left in my first town califone i love you but you're
doing coalesce califone i love you but you're singing signature again

Anthony Green - Vocals & Guitar

08 - Springtime Out The Van Window

Anthony Green - Guitar & Sequencing

09 - Slowing Down (Long Time Coming)
Things start slowing down for you and i - It's been a long time comin' if you keep holding onto
what we've lost you're gonna drag down the road behind us. i never wanted it to feel like
this to be this way i'm just afraid that if you stay we'll never change i never wanted it to be
like this to feel this way i'm just afraid that if you stay you'll hate me

Anthony Green - Vocals, Guitar, Bass, Keyboard & Bells
Tim Arnold - Drums


10 - The First Day Of Work At The Microscope Store
What if the banner falls and the presenters are suffocated stop the grand opening, the
microscopes, we can see throught them broken magnifying glasses serenade the passengers
until they cry dancing for the cameras on the traffic lights - Kissing the turns - I can see
throught you - Watching her eyes as he returns hold the wheel as every man going 95 on this
lane serenade the passengers until they cry dancing for the cameras on the traffic lights
like adam and eve high and driving no one would stop us

Anthony Green - Vocals, Guitar, Bass, Keyboard & Bells
Tim Arnold - Drums & Back-Up Vocals
Dan Schwartz - Back-Up Vocals
Keith Goodwin - Back-Up Vocals


11 - Devils Song (This Feels Like A Nightmare)
I caught a demon in a mouse trap one day behind the house it said, "Please let me free i'll do
anything." So we came to an agreement made an exchange "Your freedom for my name?" Then he
began to sing, "Devils song, no , it won't be too long to finally see the evil you've become." The
devil cries all through the night i don't think there's a reason devil song it won't be too
long to finally see the evil you have become devill cries all through the night this feels like
a nightmare well i was always told you were a liar and not to trust but my name still means
nothing and we're all in the same spot this feels like a nightmare

I just wanted to share everything I have read and heard about this album so far.
(most of you have seen most of this info, I just figured that it would be good to have it all in one place)

View PostMoshtradamus, on Dec 11 2007, 5:17 PM, said:

at some point next year i will release an album of some songs .
songs like stone hearted man, babygirl and dying to reach you re recorded acoustically as well as unreleased songs.
this will not be a break from circa at all for everything i do is for circa.
it will be like jerking off because your lover is at the barber shop or not home from work yet.
it still might feel good just not as good as when your all together.
Sometime, right around this point, we found out he would be releasing this album for Photo Finish Records

So this past week and a half we moved the WHOLE STUDIO at cannon road down by the beach to Avalon, NJ to start tracking Anthony Greene’s solo record!  The house was great, the living room where we set everything up had a huge slanted ceiling and a sweet staircase.  We put mics everywhere and made our own reverb!!!!!  It was such a great experience and I had such a good time.  We lived off of WaWa and pizza the whole week and a half, and even though we said we would go out an do so many things, we were just to into work and never left the house haha. The guys from Castles came down and they are some of the best musicians ive ever had the pleasure of working with.  The stuff we did with them came out so good! Anthony is an amazing musician as well and  I love every song he has on the record! He is such a good guy and im so glad we got to work together on this project.  For the love of god keep an eye out for this thing!  And make sure your not like us and go to Uncle Bills for some sweet pancakes!
On March 29 at Siren Records, Anthony said that the album comes out in August 2008.
Also, Good Old War posted on their myspace page that they will be touring as direct support to Anthony Green's solo project in August 2008 throughout the USA.

I can't wait. The first time I read the bulletin about "avalon" getting mixed, I thought it was a song at first, but it being the album name makes more sense I suppose.
