about

That Which Is Not Said is an album about learning to accept oneself within, and accept the reality of all that comes from without. It’s an eponymous abstract exposition on navigating the realms of intimacy that the living world inevitably unveils and their equally inevitable fallout, the panic of abandonment and the loss of desire, and dragging oneself back up the hill once the lonely valleys lose their allure. Written and recorded over the course of two years in TWINS home studio in Atlanta with various synths, samplers, drum machines, and his very own flesh-and-muscle vocals, That Which Is Not Said is the result of countless studio sessions and experiments that were refined and distilled into the songs presented here, rigorously worked out through live performances and repeated critical overhaul. The material was all conceived more or less the same way: a mood or feeling would be channeled through whatever machines were plugged in at the time and eventually a foundation would be developed upon which a loose structure would be improvised. Experimenting and throwing around vocals came next, making up phrases and lyrics on the fly until something clicked and a pathway cleared through the fog and mist. 

TWINS (the acronym from which the album derives its title, if one’s curious about the order of origin) is the mutant machine-pop project of Atlantan producer, label operator, and all-around aesthete-visionary Matt Weiner. Having spent the better part of a decade reveling in a moody murk that intersects seductive synth-pop with Featureless Ghost and grotesque industrial-dance grooves in his own right as TWINS, Weiner has more than proved his sincerely sinister and auspiciously artful finesse of synth-based music. Operating from his home studio, arrayed with various tools of the trade, Weiner tempers his subtle scourges of sound with an unending sense of bold exploration, processing tracks of pulse-heavy aural catharsis. When performing these songs live, he brings an array of hardware to back up his flooring vocal performances, using his entire being to work the audience into a frenzied trance. When not making music as TWINS, Weiner also runs the CGI Records label and co-runs the DKA label, between the two releasing music from Boy Harsher, Profligate, Alex Falk, High-Functioning Flesh, VALIS, Scott Fraser, Beau Wanzer, Featureless Ghost, Golden Donna, and more. Weiner also performs in the duo Pyramid Club with Chris Daresta, and produces music in the studio with Stefan Ringer as SM42 and with the esteemed CH Rom as Wo.

Track Name: Glass Breaks Glass
Glass breaks glass

the shards slice me

it's a desperate plot

it didn't set me free

Glass breaks glass

I didn't wanna leave

but inside I'm guided by this disbelief


To make it sting more

let it cut you slow

slide it back and forth


It would not happen if you listen to me
this is the reaction 
again and again

Blood drips out on contact liquid
I can't stand in its place

Sweat flowing backwards mixes with the metal
and it's bitter to taste

cuts my skin

the shards let liquid flow

stick it right back in and

rip it out

won't break until I can't take anymore 
won't break until I can't take anymore
won't break until I can't take anymore
won't break until I can't take anymore

Glass
Falling So Far

Glass
Drops into my

Glass
Glistening Red Shards
Track Name: Lightweight
Weight's gone now

Lightweight

So take me down

Yourself

Light's in you

I cannot back up 

Now that I've gone

Through the ropes

Of a love so cold


Lights fall dark

I'm awake

Let's stay out

They're gone


I swear to God


It seems

Dark here

Stay close

Don't go

far
Track Name: Taste Of Peppermint
let's go in

stayed back enough

it's our

time to go down

why yes I need

to believe that I could still think

there was enough

to leave a taste

in my mouth


there's no way to get it out


thirst

fill the air with peppermint

done

clear away now


nights run 

downhill

these skies can feel endless

back out

stay away

pick up the slack now that i've let go

it's never enough


tonight


hey now we've made it

let's split a pack of gum

this taste of peppermint

gets all on our tongues

i absolutely 

in the here and now

back out

stay away

pick up the slack now that i've let go
Track Name: Stuck
My heart had stopped

My head got stuck

My whole life stuck

My whole mind stuck

I will not bleed

I've failed my needs

I can't say please

You won't release

Oh

Don't envy you

Don't envy you

Don't envy you

I'm pulling out

Ow

Stuck now

You will not act

Expect how

I

Said


My heart had stopped

My whole life stuck

My whole mind stuck

I can't climb up

I failed my needs

When I said please

The whole thing came down on me

Oh

Why state a need 

No
Track Name: Before This Runs Out
Dark Stain

On the soul

Feel the pain

Or let it go

If I don't

Succeed

Will I Rise

Above?

Don't run

I'll leave

Before this runs

Out


Inside me

Is my heart

It defies

The wisdom of those

who can see

who got me out

I'm not going to regret now


Simply

Not for you

I'll be

The reason you

Simply

Feel what's true

Can't bleed

Any more than I do


Dark stain

On the soul

Feel the pain

Or let it go

If I don't

Succeed

Will I Rise

Above?

Don't run

I'll leave

before this runs

out
Track Name: What We All Sing
the first one
is bigger than the next one
the third one
beats the first two

the fifth one
is better than the fourth one
but by the sixth one
everyone's through

then the first one lies here
hot sun
but tonight's not last night
next scene
it's the first one i seek
carry on
to the next one's classic
i want
but the first one lies here
right next to me
the next one won't help
anymore
it's the first one i seek
right next to me
to try and wait 'til 
everyone is through

high and low
I heard them sing
the same old song the 
same old thing
sing follow me, follow me home, home
follow me, follow me home
sing follow me, follow me home, home
follow me, follow me home

the first one
is bigger than the next one
the third one
beats the first two

the fifth one
is better than the fourth one
but by the sixth one
everyone's through

then the first one lies here
hot sun
but tonight's not last night
next scene
it's the first one i seek
carry on
to the next one's classic
i want
but the first one lies here
right next to me
the next one won't help
anymore
it's the first one i seek
right next to me
to try and wait 'til 
everyone is through

lie to me


leave's the first one I seek
right next to me
but tonight's not last night
next scene
let the first one i seek
carry on
to the next one's classic
i want
but the first one lies here
right next to me
the next one won't help
anymore
it's the first one i seek
right next to me
to try and wait 'til 
everyone is through

sly like a dog
didn't like the things that I saw
that's like you though
high notes that I cannot hold
sly like a dog
I have the scent left in my nose 
sly like a dog
i looked back n you're following me home
high and low
awake i let time slide
take hold and know
you're not alone
step outside and know
where you'd like to go
they know
i will not go

high and low
I heard them sing
the same old song the
same old thing
sing follow me, follow me home, home
follow me, follow me home
sing follow me, follow me home, home
follow me, follow me home
Track Name: Open Up
Another night with no sleep
But I guess that's nothing new
Still at the same time
Can't get away from you
Still at the same time
I still--I can't ignore
The loss
That hangs above
Still at the same time
I still--I can't ignore
The walls that have built up

But it's gone

Body's sway while
You're insecure
I'm hanging on
Light signal

Light's out

But it's so light
your signal
I will not reach
your words
Once inside
now without
I mean no harm
Why haven't you laid out

Body's sway while
Lights go down
Track Name: The Sky Remains The Same
Inside us all
Never ever let alone
One eye packed with salt
Produces weight you can't absolve
ah
ah
ah
ah
But deceit follow's you
Imprint to all of you
They don't call on you
Will this one back down on you
They find love follow you
They kind of bother you
Will this one back down on you
ah

Take them all

I can see the sky
So far and away
far as they go
to guide our way
the same sky
follow's you
the same sky will follow you
ah

the same sky
the same sky
follow's you
follow's you
follow's you
follow's you
the same sky will follow you
it's all done
waiting
to wake back up

be not a friend
be not afraid
be not a friend
be not afraid
be not a friend
be not afraid
be not a friend
be not afraid
be not a friend
be not afraid
be not a friend
be not afraid

come again
come again
come again
come again
come again
come again
