For the last year, they've been working on this new collaboration album, which is self-titled, "Dipod."

The album is heavily influenced by modern and classic psych-rock, with a mix of progressive thrown in. Tame Impala meets Genesis and has dinner with Radiohead.

Track Name: The Old In and Out
I used to have all the feels for you
We cut our teeth in the same town
In all the time that we've been apart now
You must have got turned around

I hear they're calling us names and laughing
And still the hellfires are burning
We got to find our way home, and fast too
I spread the message I'm learning

Ooh I feel for you
I can't conceive what you must be going through
Just to know your soul has rotted through

You're in the outgroup

It's such a sense of communion I get
From spending time in the chancel
I take my lead from our valiant pioneer
He's so dynamic and thoughtful

Ah Ooh

Ooh it feels so true
What goes around comes back to you

I'm in the ingroup
You're in the outgroup
I'm in the ingroup, the ingroup
Track Name: Duplicity
It's only just started
You recede from my view
Believe me, it's harder
When there's nothing to do

I could play the fool
I'll portray the fool
I would be almost fooled but for you

I hope this is harmless
swapping out two
Did you think I was heartless?
I was neutral until you broke the news
But you should know I never know what to say
I'll pull us all through this
it's what I'd do anyway

I could play the fool
I'll portray the fool
I would be almost fooled but for you

Ooh, we uncover you every day

I could play the fool
I'll portray the fool

I would be almost fooled but for you

You don't believe me?
How long have you known me?
Track Name: Speak of the Devil
i overheard the kids say
an old abandoned couch lay
out in the field
the door to hell is sealed

the sun is low today
the man in white will play

rode our bikes along
the path where
snakes did crawl
until the trees spread open their arms
and the piece unleashed its charms

the long grass swayed silent
magnetic fields drifted in
we were told not to touch it
the demon man would grab our hand

the sun is low today
the man in white will play

who
where
i
don't see him

who
where
i
don't feel him

hello...

I've been waiting here
isn't all this clear
just sit right down here
cushions are soft dear

follow me...

the door just opens here
slide through the hole
you'll awaken soon enough
and you'll remember your fear
remember your fear...

grabbed me from behind,
my friends pushed me to run

run as fast as we can
got away from his hand

the sun is low today
the man in white will play
Track Name: Before You Wonder
You've got a lot of unexplained
phenomena.
You gotta have the most insane
luck I know of anyone.
I'm betting you're not much to blame
for circumstance.
There couldn't be that much to say
about that lack of faith, now could there?

How far down can you go?
How much nerve you must show!
I know you're sure, but how much more
before you wonder?

We've hardly had a break from rain
bombarding us.
There's a neverending fund of pain
for everyone to divvy up.
What right have you to stake a claim
on anything?
You'd let it all go up in flames
to keep your faith, and that's so fucked up.

How much more can you see?
So much wrong that doesn't have to be.
I know you're sure, but how much more
before you wonder?

Heart (break break)
Heart (break)
heart-breaker
Show me why you believe it
Show me how you can't see it
Stigma, stigmata
Stigma, stigmata, shadow

How long before you wonder?

How far down can you go?
How much nerve you must show!
I know you're sure, but how much more
before you wonder?
Track Name: Undress't
ooo awoke myself
this morning
came
at last it rang
at sunrise

unzip this hide
restless thing inside
stepped out
touched the cold floor

pull shoulders down
fell to my hips
the hollow scream
escaped my lips

where will I go?
without feet below
float across
the time lost?

I lay unzipped.
I lay
I lay unzipped.
I lay

ooo awoke myself
this morning
came
at last it rang
at sunrise

thrown in the chute
useless human suit
defined the outside
god damn this hide
god damn this hide
god damn this hide
god damn

where will I go?
without feet below
float across
the time lost?

I lay unzipped.
I lay
I lay unzipped.
I lay
Track Name: Art of Being Wrong
You
You can be wrong
For the first time
You can be wrong

Tell you what I'll do
I'll write a number for you
You can tell me it's two
Just haven't looped it through
Must be an accent at play
Look what the critics say

You
You can be wrong
For the first time
You can be wrong
For the first time

Who wants to believe
their facts are just crude assault
You push me farther
you push me farther I'll be gone

You
You can be wrong
For the first time
You can be wrong
For the first time
Track Name: Left Hand Right Hand
tied it up
so loosely
couldn't forgive
the latest bit
I've waited on
the right moment
I'd go but
you'd have a fit

left hand right hand
left hand right hand
left hand right hand
tying knots
left hand right hand
left hand right hand
left hand right hand
tying knots

exorcise exorcise [left hand]
my demons [left hand]
exorcise exorcise [right hand right hand]
my angels [right hand]
oooh [tying knots]
[tying knots]

I never can say such things in the way I've needed to
I hardly believe myself when I hear the ones I do
Far be it from me to be a one to leave well enough alone
Just trying to figure out which part is where I consider myself home

left hand right hand
left hand right hand
left hand right hand
tying knots
left hand right hand
left hand right hand
left hand right hand
tying knots

dialogue
between my ears
louder than
a rocket ship
a fool's errand to
try silence it
i know better
than to hold it in
it squeezes out
beyond my control
you walk away
to hurt me more
my energy
makes the point
you'd save it all
to say you win

left hand right hand
left hand right hand
left hand right hand
tying knots
left hand right hand
left hand right hand
left hand right hand
tying knots

i tied it up so loosely
i tied it up
Track Name: Last to Go
A hundred feet below
a large palazzo
they're swapping notes
pockets full
hard to view it all
not bought, not sold
if they sleep at all
hope it's terrible

For you
the solitude
is how you sooth

Not hard to toe
the status quo
to be stubborn is
to be the last to go
with these parting words
I beg you, let it go
it's all been hard enough
you lost, you know

You walk so slow
you look around you
you keep focus
on what's possible
all said before
all ruse I'm quite sure
such a vacant soul
that I don't care so much

But you
your attitude
its noxious hue
precedes when you enter a room

It's not hard to sow
something we all could use
to be stubborn is
to be the last to know
with this parting thought
I'll tell you where to go
it's all been hard enough
you lost, you know
Track Name: Spectrum Ghosts
close my eyes
color paints
an orange mood
awaits
in my mind

find the place
no one knows
a vision
awaits
in my mind

off to see
where the hues break free
the spectrum ghosts come to be
off to see
where I'll break free
cannot point to me

on the beach
or desert reach
all i know that
its
there somewhere

it might be
the space between
these notes i sing
it's there
all the time?

off to see
where the hues break free
the spectrum ghosts come to be
off to see
where I'll break free
cannot point to me
Track Name: The Vines
when you've leapt in someone's heart
just make sure the door is closed behind you
just see that something's left
a seed to plant in love's enclosure

started
fire
imparted
fire

smooth some gravel with my hands
kick the stones across the land
the path was shoveled years before
the vines

mortar that once held
the bricks and bones are crumbling
when you think there's nothing left
light refracts through hope again

started
fire
imparted
fire

fire was started in there
the sprout aglow with ember
the life of love like vines aflame
will light the path again

started
fire
imparted
started
fire
imparted

smooth some gravel with my hands
kick the stones across the land
the path was shoveled years before
the vines
Track Name: Retrograde
Being fooled, I won't sit silent
Can't believe trick they use is working
Can't you see subterfuge is classic
Just playing with your feelings

Ooh, all of the parties
Ooh, all of the parties
Me and you are two amid millions of their own ads
Ooh, all of the parties

Recognize, hard to see what's honest
There's too much information
Couldn't know, but you lost integrity
Bartered for your outrage

Ooh we're starting to go
in retrograde
on this promenade
Ooh, they start to throw
a fusillade
before we can stop to wonder

Ooh, all of the parties
Ooh, all of the parties

Not so hard see which way you sided
Way too little of a skeptic
Apologies, common as a yeti
Less with you chided

Ooh we're starting to go
in retrograde
on this promenade
Ooh, we start to throw
a fusillade
before they can stop to wonder
Ooh they won
Track Name: Heart Divisions
Ooh you are beloved both
You oughtta know there's no debate
Which the most, is such a hornet's nest
that you cannot help but shake

Ooh divided into parts
Ooh split right along the heart

Red and blue blood will flow through you

You, you oughta notice more
Things I do when you're away
harmony's not born from love alone
nor from fealty, guaranteed

Ooh it's bound to come apart
Ooh split right along the heart

Red and blue blood will flow through you

Ooh one stops, the other starts
Ooh fits right along the heart
Track Name: Aeons
th' age now reached we reflect on
two lives I've lived by surprise
each life is its own— a rotation
distinctions are marked in our minds

we will walk on the border
and pick the path toward the sky

oooh
we'd have known better
learning the end at the start

memories split in two for
Aeons

who was that other person
who walked around in my shoes?
familiar thoughts and surroundings
foreign, though mine all along

oooh
we'd have known better
learning the end at the start

memories split in two for
Aeons

you're born then you live for Aeons
layered existence for Aeons
you're born then you die for Aeons
consciousness travels for Aeons
Track Name: All Lost
I know you
you refuse to
admit to what's in your heart
you'd stay alone
just to prove you
had had it worst from the start

It's just like you
to not know
this is where it'd go
can this fall lightly
on your shoulders
by some miracle

I told you
as we walked from
the night's catch in your lake
you mulled it over
to my shock though
you didn't make a thing
so maybe I
could trust better
some make a pet of the snake
hard times
if I'm honest
there's hardly time to sing

It's just like you
to phone it in
and this is where it goes
can this fall lightly
on your shoulders
by some miracle
we all lost

It's not like you
to go long
and catch the ball
will this fall lightly
on your shoulders
by some miracle
we all lost

Ooh, in the light of the day
Ooh, in the light of the day

The phone rings
you turn the sound off
and step away from the sink
in just a moment
this is the moment
I try to say what I think

It's just like you
had known it
so you were genial
will this fall lightly
on your shoulders
by some miracle
we all lost
Track Name: Found the Ground
open your eyes
surprise
we've been here
for 10 years
or more

we're not right
but we won't fight
the way
you want us to
you want us to

we won't fall down
hard enough
to suit you
but we've
found the ground

felt the sting
pain did sing
across my heart
and through my eyes
my part was realized

i won't play the monster
i won't play the monster
the one who kills
my love's free will

we won't fall down
hard enough
to suit you
but we've
found the ground

we won't fall down
hard enough
to suit you
but we've
found the ground

we won't fall down
hard enough
to suit you
but we've
found the ground
but we've
found the ground
but we've
found the ground

open your eyes
surprise
we've been here
for 10 years

or more
