Worn 06:17
Eyes follow you always, hiding from the brilliant sun Shades and drawn and looked under, the satellites won't sleep tonight I am frayed, you are tattered, we're all a little worn Blink once and you're on top of the ground, blink twice and you're already buried We're old like the rings on saturn Learn from the mistakes you make, so you can repeat them precisely
Last night the Devil came to me, and he tried to take away my dreams It's conceivable that he, actually, was a hallucination Pillows are more like trains, eyelids drop and the engine is firing And cars and harboring everyone like starlings in a wing He said "It's useless to resist me, cause you're all bones and marrow"
The Beyond 03:18
If ever stuck in a winter hail, I swear to meet you there Or site alone by a fireplace, my time is lost in these words Now I'm healed, I've got you, and I won't go, no I won't go
St. Matthew 03:59
Silos 05:49
If I was the son of chemistry, just another white coat second string So soon to be your majesty Beaker beaker, find for me, the symmetric one A laboratory head to feed the cancer and the lung disease And every other enemy Then multiply like dragon flies
When the sun explodes, you see the end from your window Your full moon eyes are glowing still and never die An empty room has found you, I will hold you tight We're resting above this cavalier and static life Like New Year's Eve, we dressed up just to stay inside
Small Attack 03:24
The wave that we're constantly on, the cycle will suddenly end The hands stop their count on the wall Come the skeletons that we undoubtably are And to those who remain where they are Drink the weather and drown in the yard If you want to stay here, then stay Hey rain, come and wash the city away
Original music and lyrics by Fugazi. Used with permission.
L.V.S. 03:39
Four square, I once knew what it took to charm you Sleepless over if I should trust you Now, after all, I just can't make sense of your heart


Identical Homes (aka Daniel McKenzie) crafts his warm and glowing new album Machine Made Moods from the ethers of time, and time likely spent trout fishing and river walking in the greater wilds of Northern California's Humboldt County. Envision the dusty sounds of Boards of Canada and catchiness of Pinback mixed with samples from Apocalypse Now, Stephen Hawking and a half working CB radio from a decaying Rum Diary tour van and you'll have pretty good idea of where Identical Homes is coming from. In Machine Made Moods you will find a soundtrack for daydreaming.

Recorded, mixed and mastered by Daniel Mckenzie.
All instruments and voice by Daniel except on a few songs that feature Matt Mckenzie, Marlaina Pinheiro, Jake Krohn, Jon Fee and Cory Gray.
