about

Here it is... the new album by The Successful Failures - Ichor of Nettle! This 6th studio effort from the NJ Americana/indie rock band features 15 new songs plus a special bonus track. Why can’t a band from NJ release an album with a title taken from a Robert Frost poem about insects...with a song honoring the great Texan Sam Houston...with songs about headphones, immigrants, Greek gods, Tennessee boys and Galway girls? Why not? If there was any question in the past this new album confirms that this hardworking band is difficult to categorize. No Depression magazine said it best when they wrote that The Successful Failures play “instantly infectious melodies that tread the line between power pop and Americana without wholly committing to either”.

Dig in!

Track Name: Misguiding Light
Misguiding light where will you take me tonight?
I’m on my way and the time is right
For me to fall into that hole again

When I’m at home fixing a plate
Writing a letter baking a cake
Find me some thinner ice to skate upon

I know you’ll find me

You’re like my brother Joe
The only brother I know
Lost track of Joe so many years ago
but I know Joe will be there for me

When I’m alone crossing the street
Making decisions that might lead
To indiscretion, duress, and disease

I know you’ll find me

Misguiding light where will you take me tonight
I’m on my way and the time is right
For me to fall into that hole again

When I’m at home fixing a plate
Writing a letter baking a cake
Find me some thinner ice to skate upon

Taking a test, turning a page
Trying to navigate this cage
Send me a daydream I can dream upon

Meeting the folks in a DC lounge
Trying to hold my liquor down
Misguiding light I know you have me now
