about

Balto Portland, Oregon

Forget Russia. Balto is mercurial American roots music - song-driven rock’n’roll – a hair-raising live band from the Northwest – electric guitars and Hammond organs, swirling psychedelia, an occasional Bonzo drum flourish, held down on bass by a former fighter with a deep admiration for James Jamerson ... more

Track Name: Lost on the Young
Come with me in the southern heat
Where the mind recalls the fever of a gypsy queen
Spilling rum from plastic cups
Getting lit beneath the balconies in the delta sun

I’ve known love as a fleeting beauty lost upon the young
If you saw my mind, hit the high just like i planned it
driven low and lost and stranded
with the fear of another year

You're driving down to my house ‘cross town
Where the floorboards creak, the heatpipes speak, and the walls could shout
You’re looking thin and you look tired
Wanna do it like we used to but there's no second try

I’ve known love as a fleeting beauty lost upon the young
If you saw my mind, hit the high just like i planned it
driven low and lost and stranded
with the fear of another year
of feeling less each day

Have we fallen asleep?
Slipping in the fog of the american dream
For a love so true
It don't kick it don't scream like the television said it would do
