    You Are

    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

    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

    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?
    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?

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 featuring Summer Serafin (vocals), former Uncle frontman Michael Serafin-Wells (lead guitar & vocals, bass and percussion), Jason Sutherland (guitar & backing vocals) and occasional guests. 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 ungirding the lot. Maybe more Joy Division than Joy to the World, but that might actually be a good thing..."
