about

-------------------------------------------------
"Fleeting guitar-licks, warm synths and delicate harmonies form the basis of Fountains, Schimpf’s third experimental, down-tempo album.
If it’s a Washed Out vibe you’re after, then this is the album for you." - Acid Stag (acidstag.com)

"Zach has the ability to make music that extracts you from the every day bustle of life and puts you in a place which is all log cabins and fire peaceful-ness. As you listen this is what it would feel like as you languidly float through Heaven." - Earsplitter (earsplitter.co.uk)

Track Name: Sprinkler
sprinkler
clear my thoughts
Track Name: Intangible
my body's on the ground
but my mind's in the sky
is the world even listening
as spaceships glide right by

i've got sand in my head
that i feed to the ocean
anchors on my blankets
while the clouds move in slow motion

all kinds of laughter
and no kinds of me
yeah, my hands in my hair
just the air and the trees

my night's here on the ground
but my day's in the sky
is the world even breathing
with all it's hows and whys

i've got grass in my head
that i feed to the open
balloons on my blankets
while the birds fly in slow motion

one kind of thought
yeah, that one that just isn't
try doing things wrong
and they might turn out different
Track Name: Shells
do you know
what this feeling's like
rolling back and forth
through green grass
but sometimes
i'll fall short
and cry
and laugh
and cry
and back again

do you see
the layers of soil
pushing down towards
the center
but sometimes
things need change
and time
to pile
and ease
for you and me
Track Name: When Right Times Meet Right Places
i've got unfinished puzzles
that you'd toss away
i've got sweat on my hands
you keep drifting away
my path's artificial
while you grow yours on trees
yeah, you'd flood the whole city
just to cool down the breeze

tell me to bite off my tongue
and i'll tell you that sounds kind of nice
tell me to tear out my eyes
and i'll tell you they're frozen as ice
ask me how things need to be
and i'll tell you i don't know a thing

tell me to be more like them
and i'll tell you i've already tried
show me a pattern that works
before my next one dies
show me how things need to be
well maybe that's how things need to be
Track Name: Why Did I
i don't know why
i said that
it just felt right
but it was
so wrong
it was
so wrong

why did i
Track Name: Daytime
i hope there is time
to do things right
bright colored shirts
and sparklers
yeah, there's still time
till the slow dog days
on the crest of a wave
you wear away

i think i will take another drive

no sleep tonight
just one more night
gentle sounds
lets lie on the ground
yeah, there's still time
till the calm summer days
on the crest of a wave
i'll walk away

yeah, i can see it in my eyes
Track Name: New Things
so used to white walls aging
like traveling to the end of this bed is vacation
if i could bend thoughts in one direction
i would look for smiles in creation

but its so easy to do the wrong things
and get dried out from perfect habits
yeah, dreams of early breakfast
and a million failing magnets

yeah, balance feels nice

then i will listen for your laughter
although your voice is never the same
and your arms turn into wings
and you never land to stay

yeah, balance feels nice
Track Name: May
i know
you know
we are done
there are
two kinds
we are none
but I don’t
think I
care at all

at night
i walk
by myself
this time
i feel
alright
i just
need to
be alone
(oh)

there are
blue stars
they are smiling
and as I
watch them
i am trying
Track Name: Fountains
light the fountains
watch the colors
i feel certain
i feel further

the dogs are running
and so am I
to feel the sun
to watch the sky

is there more like this?
i hope there’s more like this

light the fountains
feel the heat
the kids are frightened
sparks paint the street

the dogs are resting
and so am I
to feel the sun
to watch the sky

is there more like this?
i hope there’s more like this

light the fountains
