about

Spice Hound Music co. is a Brooklyn-based psychedelic Delta blues duo consisting of singer/guitarist David Askaryan and drummer Zach Hopper. The project was conceived by David over a six month period of isolation in upstate NY. This resulted in SHMC's debut EP "The Revival,” described as “blistering dirty blues" on the Edinburgh Man radio show.

After production of the EP was completed, David moved to Brooklyn where he met his new roommate and future drummer, Zach. David’s abrasive guitar style and middle-class vocals coupled with Zach’s professional jazz experience allowed the duo to create a unique sound – translating to an unrestrained live show.

Track Name: Some Things Money Shouldn't Buy
I told you that you're a fool
you dropped out of school too late
you failed to learn the lesson
there are some things that money shouldn't buy
there are some things that money shouldn't buy
there are some things that money shouldn't buy
there are some things that money shouldn't buy

Your brothers told you to get an honest job
to not cheat your way through life
you didn't listen and found yourself a vixen
now you're fixing to die
there are some things that money shouldn't buy
there are some things that money shouldn't buy
there are some things that money shouldn't buy
there are some things that money shouldn't buy

You were warned not to go that way
You were warned not to go that way
You were warned not to go that way
You were warned not to go that way
Track Name: What I've Gotten Myself Into
Sally I love you
you know it's true
but I love your sister too
oh

Don't, don't tell nobody
I'll do so too
I think if they catch wind
with me they're through
oh

What have I gotten myself into now
I guess there are things I think that I cannot sound
Sally there ain't nobody else
Sally don't you know I love you the best
I think
Track Name: White Collar Blues
Sitting here, listening
nodding my head to nothing
fifty people sitting here
two decades nodding at the screen
millennium, thrown down the drain
a Roman empire exists in vain

What to do with myself
would my father be proud
would I be remembered if I'm just part of the crowd?

They say just nod
and it will all be alright
I'm a bit suspicious
you see, I got this doubt

If you keep nodding
you can buy a house
shake your head the other way
and they'll throw you out
nod some more
and find a nodding wife
have nodding kids
live a nodding life

Throw your chin up
and then back down
do it the fastest, you'll wear the crown
a gift of condolence
for throwing out your back
decorated, spineless head
just floating there

Just like witchcraft
at least it's not riff raff
hocus pocus
it's OK
commandeer, your happiness
and your sorrow and your wonder
and your faithfulness

If you keep nodding
you can buy a house
shake your head the other way
and they'll throw you out
nod some more
and find a nodding wife
have nodding kids
live a nodding life
Track Name: The Revival
You ride the wave
think we're all good
forget the days
when we used to howl

Oh mother
what's become of me?

Don't remember
when I feel use to feel high
I can't remember
how it is to feel high

Oh my God
please trouble me
Track Name: Redemption Song
Something funny this morning
this is my warning
the sun didn't come out till noon
the rivers stopped flowing
and the winds no longer blowing
and for weeks no one has seen the moon

Feeling bold
10,000 days old
yet today was the day she born
fell down twice
but not quite thrice
she pricked herself with a thorn

Collapsed on her knees
by the pepper trees
she began to pray
what she asked
quiet and masked
Sally refused to say
she refused to say

Circle stones
and earphones
listening to people talk
in the park, in the dark
over there she'll walk
over there she'll walk

In the maze
an enchanting haze
a quiet and faint amen
weak like this never
yet stronger than ever
Sally is a new woman
she's a new woman

Oh Sally girl
oh Sally girl
Track Name: The New Sensation
You say you want it
you want salvation
so come and get it
the new sensation

Let's go dancing
the basement floor
and if your friends like cool, cool things
just leave them at the door

You know, you're the new sensation
Oh
Forget the radio, that modernization
Oh

Draw my blood
and set me free
just like a line
of refugees

Dreaming and scheming
painful true
and painful grew
watch out for hypnotized

You know, you're the new sensation
Oh
Forget the radio, that modernization
Oh
Track Name: Farewell
It's always good
when I get to see your face

You kiss cold
but I like your charm

Sometimes
you look like in my dreams

Goodbye Philadelphia, goodbye

Let's go bogey
in the Delaware river

It's not cold
as people say it is

It's always good
when I get to see your face

Goodbye Philadelphia, goodbye
