Drifting on white Cocaine moonlight Somebody speaking and I'm gone Pour me a drink Red faces sing Somebody laughing and I'm down "Come on baby, join the dance Find some romance" Lift me up and shove me down again Skies of blue and crashing waves "Two's the deal, man Come on" Endless words Crying birds Hear a song And I'm gone Sunset view Ocean blue Burning sun And I'm gone Lord I don't know where it goes Water to wine Cocaine sunshine I feel a tingle down my spine Under seas of green Coral smiles at me It's dying! Endless words Crying birds Hear a song And I'm gone Sunset view Ocean blue Burning sun And I'm gone Lord I don't know where it goes Lord I don't know where it goes Lord I don't know where it goes

Rain clouds Over my head All the storms on the sidewalk Have gotten me wet "January brings the rain" I know, I know that's what the weather people say But it ain't gonna leave a stain Oh my January rain You can't hide from the rain You can't hide from the rain You can't hide from the rain No Rain clouds I've got them up in my brain I was striding with the sunflower garden king 'said it's gonna be okay "January brings the rain" I know, I know that's what the weather people say But it ain't gonna leave a stain Oh my January rain (Get out of the rain) (Get out of the rain) You can't hide from the rain (Get out of the rain) (Get out of the rain) You can't hide from the rain (Get out of the rain) (Get out of the rain) You can't hide from the rain (Get out of the rain) (Get out of the rain) Oh, the rain (Get out of the rain) Get out of the rain (Get out of the rain) Get out of the rain (Get out of the rain) (Get out of the rain) Get out, get out, get out, get out (Get out of the rain) Get out of the rain (Get out of the rain) Get out of the rain (Get out of the rain) Get out, Get out (Oh the rain)

Good times, bad times, who can tell? Which way is up and which is hell When your mind is in the gutter And your feet are in the ditch Ain't no way to tell which is which Miracle workers are out there every day If only you could have it your way Pick up the pieces, as they say Well now, ain't that rich? Ain't no way to tell which is which It may feel like, feel like a dream You say shapes and colors but no point You're wondering if this is all that there is You may just, may just disappear You hear booming footsteps outside Can't help but look out the window (Walking with my walkman I can't hear you talk man Walking with my walkman) The man he walked up to me He said "oh, can't you see It's all mirrors and smoke You only got to make that switch" Ain't no way to tell which is which Ba-da dee-da-dum-dye-ah (Hello, it's me) Ba-da dee-da-doo-day (I'm calling from far away) Ba-da dee-da-dum-dye-ah (Flying in a spaceship) Ba-da dee-da-doo-day (High in outer space) Ba-da dee-da-dum-dye-ah (There's all sorts of stars around me here) Ba-da dee-da-doo-day (And I can see the earth below me) Ba-da dee-da-dum-dye-ah (Everything is blue) Ba-da dee-da-doo-day (Just let me know how you are - thanks)

In my mind there's another place Another way She came in through a little door And now she stays Take me over the clouds Turn that music up loud Blue machinery As far as I can see Blue machinery In my mind she has made a home The perfect zone Out my ear through a telescope She's gazing up At the stars and the clouds And she says it out loud "Blue machinery As far as I can see Blue machinery" Please dear person in my head Can you stay a while? Open up the windows Look out for a while Oh, hear in my mind It's another day Ah-aaa Oh, blue flowers unwind It's another day Ah-aaa Oh, green fields turn to red It's another day Ah-aaa Oh, bluebirds in my head It's another day Ah-aaa

Flying on a spaceship Flying around the sun I got them old kozmic blues You better run! Dreaming of a forest I'm surrounded by trees Baby won't you come back Baby, won't you help me please? I dream of firecrackers In a warmer haze of cool Babe it's getting better I feel something comin' thru Out of the blue Everybody's laughing But I'm the joker of the pack There's too much confusion And I just can't go back Muéstrame el camino, hermano Well the train is leaving the station And I am next in line Take me to summer mountains Don't leave me behind Across the universe One after 909 I got a ticket to ride And I just feel fine Yes I do I dream of firecrackers In a warmer haze of cool Babe it's getting better Just another day goes by I miss you, baby blue eyes I dream of firecrackers In a warmer haze of cool Babe it's getting better I see something comin' thru Baby it's you (Into the blue Into the blue Out of the black Into the blue C'mon, c'mon, c'mon, c'mon, c'mon Into the blue Out of the black Oh baby, I want you back)

about

When the first rays of summer sunshine touched upon our sweet soil in 2019, Heavy Whipped Cream went into IJsvogel Studios with a handful of songs - some finished, some far from finished - and started recording. Now, there is A MOUTHFUL - a fresh new spinning wheel of five tracks, ranging from wistful beatlesque pop to fiery rock 'n' soul jammery. Feast your ears and let these five slices of psychedelic folk rock absorb you into the colorful world of Heavy Whipped Cream!
TWO IS THE DEAL, the mini-album's opener, is an upbeat folk rocker with a manic-psychedelic tinge. In the course of three minutes, the song bursts through the atmosphere, covering lyrical topics such as decadent cocaine parties, climate change and the birds 'n' the bees along the way. Get on board and let it roll - but watch out for the psychedelic drum solo climax!
In contrast, JANUARY BRINGS THE RAIN lures the listener in with an easy-going, laid back groove. But don't let the song's laid-back verses and slippery grooves fool you - before you know it the song builds up into a truly spiritual vocal climax and finally erupts in a crazed-out guitar jam. On this gospel-tinged rock 'n' soul jam, Heavy Whipped Cream are joined by four-piece vocal group The Jamm Singers. We were blessed to have their wonderful voices on the record and spent a great sunny afternoon recording several perfect takes of soulful harmonies.
WHICH IS WHICH is a journey. The listener is taken by the hand and might hear someone whisper "come, come, child, for the world is far and wide, and there is much to see." Waves softly break on a white shore in the song's delicate intro. A flash, and we're suddenly in a funky, upbeat tune with unashamedly catchy hooks. The song twists and distorts, shifting shape several times, going from murky, bluesy lows to raucous grooves, until it finally gets everyone into the sing-along mood. In hindsight, the sessions for Which Is Which mostly seemed to consist of recording all sorts of funny noises and vocal lines in the studio. Wanna play a game? See if you can gaze through the colorful mosaic of the song to discern all the weird sounds you can find!
BLUE MACHINERY is a different affair. In essence, it's a love song - it's succulent, sweet, and dreamy, like a vanilla popsicle that gently drips over your fingers on a summer day and turns everything into a sticky - but tasty - goo. This was the first song we recorded at IJsvogel studios. Finally free to lay down layer after layer and sound after sound, we opted for a maximalist approach in constructing the texture of the song. Gentle harmonies flow and ebb over layers over guitars and keys, gradually taking you along in a crooner of a chorus and a dream-like epic of a coda.
The final banger on the album, THE BALLAD OF SANDY JONES, knows what it's about. It starts off slow, giving you just a little head space to prepare for the journey ahead. Out of all the songs on 'A Mouthful', recording this song most closely resembled a live performance. On a sweaty afternoon, we recorded some intense improvisations over the song's rough structure. We cut an extensive fifteen minute take down to some eight minutes, recorded a little bit of additional percussion - and the song was done. The distinct live feel resonates through the song's cascading grooves and echoes through its crazed-out psychedelic guitar solos. When it finally fades away, the song has probably drained your energy and knocked you right down - but in a good, absolutely groovy way.
But of course, everybody has their own story to hear in these five psych folk rock nuggets. So why don't you crank up your speakers, spin it on, and listen to A MOUTHFUL?

Heavy Whipped Cream would like to thank everyone that has, is, and will be listening to this record - we are excited to share this piece of work with you all and hope with all of our heart that you enjoy it! Furthermore, special thanks go out to The Jamm Singers (for daring to enter that dingy, crammed room to lay down some truly bad-ass vocals), Kieran van Gaalen (for bringing all his bongos and things and hitting on them in an absolutely funky way), Truus Hazebroek (for braving the snowy heights on a cold December morning to shoot us pretending to be minstrels), Bonnie van Vugt (for allowing us to make a total mess of her room (and her roommate's room), before shooting some great trippy scenes), and Norman Greenbaum, for providing the amazing soundtrack to a wonderful and catchy drive into the countryside.
