about

Charles and Michael are KNTRLR, the production duo behind The Great Filter - out on Goodnight Records on February 24th. The LP expands their sound just as well as it expresses their maturity, both in music and in life experience. The men behind KNTRLR have evolved, but their backgrounds may belie some of the pensive lyrical storytelling of their best songs. From love and death to loss and family, the sum of the band’s life experiences has created a darker collection of songs. Michael is raising children, and the untimely passing of their close friend and The Great Filter sound engineer Jim Bentley has no doubt affected the songwriting. “XXX” is the first single from their new record, and the strong confidence in the sound they’ve built is obvious; the life experience has served KNTRLR’s music well.

If The Walkmen joined with Death Grips and toured brothels, we have something like the sound of KNTRLR’s debut LP The Great Filter

Track Name: The Great Filter
They’re growing in
they’re growing I just want to let you know
It’s gonna end
It’s gonna end I just want to let you know


they’re growing in and it’s harder to cut back now
Cut the branches but the seeds have long been strewn out
it’s growing in and it’s harder to cut back now
Again you cant win
Maybe lie don’t say all the words.
lie don’t see all the words
lie don’t see all the words
Cos anymore would be ambition
anymore would mean hope in tomorrow
For tomorrow
Cos anymore it would feed the fiction
anymore would mean you're not alone now, cos you are alone now
move on

Cos anymore would be ambition
anymore would mean hope in tomorrow
For tomorrow
Cos anymore it would feed the fiction
anymore would mean you're not alone now, cos you are alone now
move on
Track Name: XXX
Each day I can spend with you
I’m not dead at least not yet
I just want to drown in the dream
I want to believe
a green hope
a green faith
don't mean it works out ok
the come down the next round
I’m ready, I’m ready, I’m not ready
for the violence

Forget the question there’s no good answer
it's changing all time
There’s no everlasting way
no good answer
nothing satisfies
nothing satisfies and never will

bitch please no one's gonna save you
alive but we're alone and there's no
thing we do
machines won't do
but had we been more selective
had we been more selective
there's no gaurantee that all that's wrong would have worked out


Forget the question there’s no good answer
change it won't arrive for us
change won't arrive
There’s no everlasting way
no good answer
nothing satisfies
nothing satisfies and never will

I know I'm not dead yet
not dead at least not yet
i want the sex and more
i want the blood and warmth
I want to feel more more

Forget the question there’s no good answer
change it won't arrive for us
change won't arrive
I take it all
all for granted
nothing satisfies
nothing satisfies and never will

Forget the question now
it's no use
change don't matter let it go
Cos I take it all
all for granted
nothing satisfies
nothing satisfies and never will
Track Name: Halogen
I Fight the feeling - it won’t go away
You're a poison and I'm in love with the taste
To have you right now, I'd do terrible things. You see
There's no one in control and we're reptilian
Come in closer, whisper crazy to me
See you're my only escape
And promises don't break first, first they decay

It was august in new orleans and the sweat was running down the windows and doors
We're swimming in the light
You scream for more

Let it take over - let go
Just let it come over - come here
right now
I forget you're crazy; you forget I'm a drunk
Just let it take over
we can let it go

When we drove to Arkansas
Stayed in that dirty motel room
It don’t get better than that I thought baby
It don’t get better than that
But you wanted to run
You want to do wrong

Fuck it just come over here right now
I need you so bad it tears me up
I'll forget you're crazy
I forget you're crazy; you forget I'm a drunk
Just let it take over
let it go
It was august in new orleans and the sweat was running down the windows and doors
We're swimming in the light
You scream for more

Let it take over - let go
Just let it come over - come here
right now
I forget you're crazy; you forget I'm a drunk
Just let it take over
we can let it go
Track Name: Double Helix
Always think about
It's perfectly unnatural right

You can't pick one mind
38 times a day
But if you're gonna be an asshole
Best go all the way

Morning takes so long to come
The night never lets go
When I wake up and hear you cry out my heart lifts at the sound

I'm chained to you and I'll do anything to say chained to you
Though I'm bound to fail to

Always think about
It's perfectly unnatural right

You are first in line, at least now
You mean everything to me now
But you are cursed - you're mine and you'll find out
But you mean everything to me now.
And aught to know that

Each long chain it drags it's anchor that tears holes in the floor
Don't end up another well trained liar. Stay sincere as a gun.


I'm chained to you and I'll do anything to say chained to you
Though I'm bound to fail to
Our chains torn in two
Remade better in you
Track Name: Greenwood
The best excuses
I make the best excuses
Like hey hey...I can’t stay

Here’s to another day
you don’t get back.

i know
if you’d just relax you’d see that it wont stay
it wont stay

Perhaps we’re just
over
thinking
Cos we almost
tried


Oh no, it’s tomorrow;
and i’m Gin soaked

Honey I’m freaking
honey i’m freaking
you’re too aware of your pulse it doesn’t do any good
you’re too aware of your pulse it doesn’t do anyone
it doesnt do anyone
when you’re calling everything a sign
if you’d just relax you’d see that it won’t stay
it won’t stay

Perhaps we’re just
over
thinking
Cos we almost
tried

My love you’re the one thing that can stop the clock from turning
yes my love you’re the one thing that can stop the clock from turning but
Oh no, it’s tomorrow;
and i’m Gin soaked
oh no
gin soaked
Track Name: Stabs
To wield the knife again
I'd trade it all
To drown the details
I'd trade it all
To start again
To escape the end

This gesture's vacant
This gesture's fake and you know it
She's gone forever
Gone like the seasons and snow

The justice of the sun
Waits for no one
The fire in the sky
As fires do, one day will die
by definition die

The past is vacant. The past is fake and you know it.
It may be vacant, but I miss the beat of my home.

Our atmospheres piled high
evaporate and blow away
All that I've gathered round
Safe no more. Blown away

Lips they turn to leather
dried in the mid day sun
All I said I'd never do to you
I've done worse and more

The justice of the sun
Waits for no one
Track Name: CCA
First they break windows then they're breaking down you're door
Broken windows lead to Dahmer moving in next door
That's right that's fine w/ me we've one quarter of the world's
Prison population. You won't do shit about it. Let that shit go.

Well of course it'd be different if it were my kids

I come from concrete and concrete is all I know
I stole I sold some drugs and now chainlink's all I know
I never hurt no one and getting raped is all I know
If life's a game it’s rigged, if you ever had a chance you don’t no more


Well of course it'd be different if it were my kids

I'd let em all out
It's not the same I know it's not the same I know that
I'd let em all out. If they're non-violent. I'd let em all out.


I don’t want to find out what they might know
Another Isaac. A blade and an instruction note
Track Name: Kursk
there's no love but with you girl
you know I.
the bombs went off at 3am
off the coast of iceland
and now we're sinking into the dark
w/ no hope of rescue
i cannot see to, write to you
the horror's gone the only sound
is the crying of the walls to give out
there's no time

If only I'd have gotten up and danced one last time with you
was only ever drunk and never without some cheap excuse
I hope you never doubt how I loved you
there's no time
Feel no religion
see no light
my last thoughts as they come to me are only pictures of you
the pain's not dying it's knowing i will never again see you

there's no love but with you girl
