praise for now + then:

"a magnificently sinewy suite with great vocal painting on a nice high rem-style canvas." -paul schomer, npr / radio crowd fund

"candysound’s intricate arrangements feature staccato rhythms that never become brittle, complimented by passion that never translates to general heaviness. The songs feel light and engaging, even though they’re all going at it full force." -stephen carradini, independent clauses

"and it is the idea of time that seems focal to the record. the passing of it. the mourning of it. and its power to be ephemeral. candysound perfect the art of restraint on 'now + then' - enabling it to be a record full of youth in tone, while sounding mature and informed in execution." -rich ward, 11 is louder than 10

"i’ve been listening to crider’s music since he was a teenage bedroom shredder with a myspace page, and have always thought he’s one of a group of musicians in this town who consistently crank out quality music, make it look a whole lot easier than it probably is, and generally don’t make enough of a fuss about themselves. this opinion is borne out on 'now + then', which is nine songs of crider’s succinct and engaging indie pop music fleshed out by a full band." -carey ross, cascadia weekly

"while every song on the album is a nugget of indie pop gold, 'keep up' and 'anything' are highlights with the emotional 'beacons' rounding out the album." -brent cole, what's up magazine

Track Name: Under Our Sleeves
as we're driving away
we just know how it is
heading north through the fields
that we worked in as kids
we pass row after row
as they form up in lines
for a handful of pennies
or a pocketful of dimes.

the moths on my door
they reminds me of habits
I thought I didn't have anymore
in the valley
we all have a vice or three
in the backs of our closets
or under our sleeves.
Track Name: Keep Up
for as long as I can remember
every night we'd lie awake
counting down the hours
until we made our escape
I think we're headed out now
two middle fingers held high
kick open through the front doors
and walk out into our lives.

down highways and around again
and these places in between
we keep trying to find it in everyone we meet
and I know it's been a while
but despite what you've been told
we still stagger through these streets
making short-term memories
don't you know?

and there's a lesson somewhere
probably hidden underneath
drifting away and northward
and maybe we're afraid to see
another year's gone by
and I can't seem to feel a thing
it's only getting harder
to keep up with the living.

but there's still so much to say
so we bother with the time
we can see it in these stage lights
and I can feel it in your eyes
and I know it's been a while now
but despite the things they'll say
we're still stumbling through these streets
making short-term memories anyway.
Track Name: Now + Then
oh I've been seeing your face
every at night in my dreams
and you visit so sudden
as if everything seems
closer than it's ever been
to seeing you again
but that's only a moment
that happens now and then.

probably downtown in the company
of the company we share
in some drinking establishment
I probably won't care to be in
for the hours spending
my pockets away again
I know it's not right
but it happens now and then.

and I've been seeing your face
every at night in my dreams
and you visit so sudden
as if everything seems
alright for an instance
because I saw you again
but that's only a moment
that happens now and then.

and then I drink to myself
another night in a row
I think that I should write you
but I already know
that a letter can't begin to say
and a song won't make amends
I've been doing it all wrong these days
but it happens now and then.
Track Name: Anything
oh anything
will do
you sleep in instead
through these afternoons
and early evenings
just take your time
through the longest nights now.

oh anything will do.

oh anything
will do
to stay interested
through these afternoons
but it's time to go now
I guess there's a world outside
and it's wondering why
you've been out of sight and hiding out.

oh anything will do.

because I know not what I do
just don't go telling everyone.
Track Name: Turned In
these faces smiling at you
are just scars on the moon
and all these diamonds you see
can't mean a thing to me.

because I've turned into
all I was hiding from
because I've turned in
because I've turned into
all I was running from
because I've turned in.

oh I could tell you some truths
but we're all quite understood here
because all these diamonds you see
can't mean a thing to me.

because I've turned into
all I was hiding from
because I've turned in
because I've turned into
all I was running from
because I've turned in.
Track Name: 11:11
your lights shine through the window
you're awake when I arrive
it's not that we're distracted
but we'll probably stay up all night.

and there's no rhyme or reason to it
we'll have it no other way
this wasn't how I planned on it to be
but it's where the pieces fell in place.

now I'm stumbling to your door
make my way up to your stairs
I know I've made this trip before
but I'm always left so unprepared.

but you're special kind of being
and someday I hope to be the same
I've still got so much to learn about you
but sometimes I can't wait.

and there's no rhyme or reason to it
we'll have it no other way
this wasn't how I planned on it to be
but it's where the pieces fell in place.
Track Name: Beacons
and there were beacons on the bay
we could try to swim
but it would probably be too far away
and we're not worried about the cold
no we're not scared to die
as much as we're afraid about growing old.

I think I've seen this in some dream
a thousand nights ago
it makes us laugh
and I think we've done this all before
under the same moon
this time of year
but with a self I don't know anymore.

it was a thousand nights ago.

and there were beacons on the bay
to guide some ships into landfall
and then you turned to say:
I'm not worried about the cold
no I'm not scared to die
as much as I'm afraid about growing old.

but it's a thousand nights away.
