about

Red Spring is the collaborative project from Randy McStine (Lo-Fi Resistance) and Michael Wu. The duo set out to record a full-length album, but with busy individual schedules McStine suggested they just pick a few songs to start with.

The result is "Inside," a three song EP of melodic pop/rock. Originally written for a full electric band production, McStine and Wu instead decided to re-arrange the songs for a warmer, acoustic approach.

"Hollow Tree" introduces the duo with a harmonious slice of sunny pop/folk. The title track follows with a slightly darker take on things. Sounding something like early REM meets Neil Young, "Inside" is propelled by tight guitars, deep grooves, and soaring vocals. The EP closes with "Through The Glass," a stark and powerful solo performance by McStine.

For fans of: Neil Finn, Jason Falkner, Big Star, REM, Jeff Buckley, and...

Track Name: Hollow Tree
driving through town on a cold winter day
i thought of places where I'd run away

to try and hide

follow me
under this hollow tree
where we can stay at night
and i'll hold you tight

time after time i have felt my heart break
it's getting harder for me to take

but you are true

follow me
under this hollow tree
where we can stay at night
and i'll hold you tight
and if the moment is right
the sky will shine
Track Name: Inside
walk away from the light
over the fence to the other side
look beyond the screen
it's a movie remake scene by scene
with a new cast that's double the size
and they talk so fast it distorts the li(n)es
but the contrast has a beautiful disguise

spilling over the edge
a couple hang on to the ledge
waiting for the kill
waiting on the hill

the still life is washed in grey
where night and day just look the same
tonight, the bottle is in the tide
along the countryside
the waves will make a great divide
and the butterflies will stay trapped inside

one cannot replace
disappear without a trace
throwing paint on a wall
doesn't seem to cover all the shadows, invisible cracks
the color goes from red to black
before you know, the drip is on your back

inside

walk away from the light
over the fence to the other side
look beyond the screen
beyond the big machine
Track Name: Through The Glass
red lights
flash outside
my window
no surprise
they will be back
tomorrow

sometimes i cry
sometimes i occupy the silence with laughter

take care love
it's been so nice with you
and i will continue
to look through the glass
until it passes by

day into night
year after year
it rises
with no explanation
and no sympathy
and many compromises

sometimes i think
sometime i drink until my face is smiling uncontrollable

when we can feel
when it is real
when we can heal

i'll walk out the door and i'll run up to you
i'll say all the things that i wanted to before
you're not here anymore

take care love
it's been so nice with you
and i will continue
to look through the glass
until i pass by
look through the glass
maybe next time i'll belong
