You Are 07:21
And you're everywhere In everything You're all I know I wait for you In everyplace that I can go Hear you sing to me From some sweet somewhere Close my eyes to see All I wanna be is with you there And your name is love And your soul is true And everything you told me Is just what I'll do And everyday is faith That I'll find you where The earth meets the sky Where your soul and mine Meet the air Where you are And it's okay now Just to say now Any day now We'll find our way how To where you are Hallelu!

All 07:26
And every word And everywhere And every thought And every prayer And every road And every thing Whatever hope Could ever bring Just so ya know… And every place And every trial And every face And every mile And everyone And every line With every sun The fault’s all mine Just so ya know… All and all… And everyday And every year And every breath And every tear And every step And every time And every dream I live behind Just so ya know… All and all

Angels 04:10
Call the angels in for free Let it all come to be Call the angels in for me Let it all come to be Because a lifetime is just not enough And the earth could never hold me Because I still need you so much So let the love that has so blessed us Finally take me to my rest And then… Call the angels in for me Let it all come to be Call the angels in for free Let it all come to be And I’m so sorry For every mistake My heart just breaks To think that could have ever made you cry It tears me up inside And everyday now I pay now And pray somehow Please Heaven to allow Let me find you inside the sky Call the angels in for me Let it all come to be Call the angels in for free Let it all come to be Let it all come Let it all come Let it all come Let it all come to be Call the angels in for me…

Can’t I be with you now? Can’t I be with you now? Cause you’re my only home And I’m so all alone Can’t I be with you now I’m all the way down And I just wanna go I’m all the way down And I just wanna know Can’t I be with you now? ‘Cause I just wanna go And I just wanna know Know all I know you know See all you have to show Go everywhere you go Can’t I be with you now? I’m all the way down And I just wanna go I’m all the way down And I want you to… Can’t I be with you now? Cause you’re my only home And I’m so all alone Can’t I be with you now? ‘Cause I just wanna go And I just wanna know Know all I know you know See all you have to show Go everywhere you go Can’t I be with you now?

about

"Brilliant. Ranging from moody shoegaze to jangly dreampop with a sturdy bit of the ruins of CBGB's undergirding the lot."
- Ground Control Magazine

ABOUT THIS RELEASE: Hailed as "eclectic, steadfast and powerful" (PopMatters) and "taut, urgent and altogether haunting" (Ground Control) NYC's Bipolar Explorer follow up their acclaimed double-record "Of Love and Loss" (Slugg Records, 2012) with this powerhouse EP - an electrifying and evocative collection of five new songs - recorded, according to the band, "live, noisily and in a hurry" at their studio in Hell's Kitchen.

As ever, this record is of, for and about our fallen bandmate, my love and partner, Summer Lindsay Serafin (11/13/79 – 3/18/11). “She was like that device they use in open heart surgery that cracks your chest open and holds it gaping, wide, so you can be healed. That fragile little muscle, scarred and scared and on the verge of giving out, giving up, held now, tenderly, in her expert hands, beneath her loving, healing gaze. Love you forever. Goodnight, little sweetheart... -Michael Serafin-Wells, New York City - December 2014

ABOUT THE BAND: Their double-album "Of Love and Loss" honored in the Critics Poll of Best Albums of 2013 by Ground Control Magazine, hailed as "most heart-stirring album of the year, it feels and sounds like music that is really from inside someone's own skin, skeleton, bloodstream and remains the most significantly stirring and addictive musical accomplishment we've come across in some time", as "taut, emotional, urgent and altogether haunting" in the same publication's original May 2013 review and by PopMatters as "eclectic, steadfast and powerful - making new and truthful music", Bipolar Explorer are an NYC-based minimalist indie rock group founded by Summer Serafin (vocals) and former Uncle frontman Michael Serafin-Wells (lead guitar & vocals, bass and percussion). The drummerless group - once quoted as being “basically not-quite-former punkrockers who decided to try playing not so damn loud and without a drummer, partly out of necessity and partly to see if we liked it” - have closed out 2014 both with the completion of this album and a Christmas EP, "BPXmas" (Slugg Records, Dec 2014), which Ground Control called "Brilliant. Ranging from moody shoegaze to jangly dreampop with a sturdy bit of the ruins of CBGB's undergirding the lot. Maybe more Joy Division than Joy to the World, but that might actually be a good thing..."
