about

Het nieuwe album van Marten de Paepe heet Wait another year en verschijnt 14 oktober 2013 bij V2 Records. Wait another year is de opvolger van het goed ontvangen Boskoop (V2, 2011). Was Marten de Paepe op Boskoop te horen als singer-songwriter, met invloeden uit folk en pop, op Wait another year zoekt hij muzikale grenzen op. Hij verzamelde nieuwe muzikanten om zich heen en ging met producer Sebastiaan van Bijlevelt het experiment aan in de Galloway Studio in Nijmegen.

Wait another year
Wait another year is een plaat over vrijheid, verwachtingen en het verleggen van grenzen. Samen met zijn nieuwe band experimenteert Marten de Paepe met instrumenten en geluiden. Verwacht blazers uit een gitaarversterker, zang uit een meterslange galmtunnel en geluidseffecten uit analoge effectpedalen. Marten de Paepe gaat op Wait another year op zoek naar de kern van een mooi liedje. Hij blaast het stof eraf, geeft een klap op zijn achterste en zet het voor de microfoon. Geen gesomberman. Ook geen valse pretenties. Vooral veel mooie liedjes.

Band en productie
Op Wait another year werkt Marten de Paepe samen met verschillende muzikanten uit Utrecht om omgeving. Live en op plaat zijn te horen: Mischa Porte (drums. o.a. Maison du Malheur, René van Barneveld), Marlon Penninkhof (gitaar, o.a. Amber Arcades), Vincent Beijer (toetsen, o.a. Phinx, EON) en Judith Renkema (bas, o.a. Jaimi Faulkner). Gastbijdragen zijn van Coen Hamelink (trompet, flugelhorn), Roy Hendriks (trombone), Alex Akela (viool) en Mike Roelofs (Hammond). Sebastiaan van Bijlevelt (o.a. Okieson) kleurt de plaat in met verschillende effecten, synths en andere instrumenten.

Thematiek
Altijd al willen reizen? Ga vandaag nog aan de kant van de weg staan en start met liften. Ontsnappen aan de alledaagsheid? Laat alles achter en begin opnieuw. Mensen houden van verrassingen. Iedereen heeft wensen en verlangens en kansen om die in vervulling te laten gaan. Tegelijkertijd houden mensen ook van het bekende, van oud en vertrouwd en duidelijke grenzen. Iedereen moet ergens op kunnen bouwen; een fundament van vrienden en bekenden, een baan, verwachtingen of een rol. Het roer omgooien? Soms lijkt het beter even te wachten. En soms duurt dat te lang.

Over Marten de Paepe
Marten de Paepe werd in recensies vergeleken met Nick Drake, Tim Buckley, J.J. Cale, Devandra Banhart en Wilco. Eerdere platen onder eigen naam zijn Marten de Paepe (Dying Giraffe, 2007) en Boskoop (V2, 2011). Marten de Paepe speelde in o.a. Paradiso, de Melkweg, Tivoli en de Arenbergschouwburg in Antwerpen en reisde mee met het reizende popfestival Popronde. Hij deed voorprogramma’s van Cat Power, Alexi Murdoch en Joan as Police Woman en speelde op verschillende festivals, waaronder Lowlands.

Track Name: Better go
Gonna say it all again
Life it just a simple plan
Better go, better go, better go

Gonna say that it’s the end
Mother dear I’ll be gone again
To my friends, I hope it ends this way

All who see the wasteland
Can only start again
And I’ll be fine
Just say I am like you want me to be

Surely I could break the spell
Surely I would rattle & shake it up
All you know it fell in pieces

All who see the wasteland
Can only start again
And I’ll be fine
Just say I am like you want me to be

All who see the wasteland
Can only start again
Don’t think that this will be the end

Leave it like you found it
Come back home again
I’ll be fine
Just say I am like you want me to be
Track Name: Wait another year
Hope I never let you go away
We’ll last forever for many years
Once felt so hungry
But now I’m too much at ease

I can see it coming
Coming over here
It’s gonna catch me when it’s near
Don’t wait another year

The dreams that I keep looking for keep me wide awake
Sometimes I feel so tired I wish that I could sleep
In dreams it all comes back to me
All that I wish to see

I can see it coming
Coming over here
It’s gonna catch me when it’s near
Don’t wait another year
Track Name: All the same
When you say that your mind’s still young
You might just tell a lie
I don’t know what’s right or wrong
When there are no mistakes

Take my breath
Take my poor heart too
And all that’s left for you
But what about me
What about me
I still love you all the same

What’s bugging me I can’t tell no-one
It’s not a secret to unveil
Tell me yours and I’ll bring you some
It’s not that I don’t know what’s left to come

Take my breath
Take my poor heart too
And all that’s left for you
But what about me
What about me
I still love you all the same
Track Name: Never leave me
Bad luck and the road is rough
Gonna make it if I try
Get up, hope that I will find
My way back home on time

You’ll never leave me
No matter how hard I try

You’re mad and I know you’re right
That’s what I’ve been saying all this time
I never listen and I never come
When you ask me to be closer

You’ll never leave me
For another guy

Come back to bed now
I’ll feel sorry in the morning

To break up, end up feeling strange
Even remember your name
Some folks always keep it clean
But I’m feeling dirty and I’ll always be

You’ll never leave me
No matter how hard I try
You’ll never leave me
For another guy

Come back to bed now, come back to sleep
I’ll feel sorry in the morning
Just like I’ll always be
Track Name: Tired ghosts
I’m going down the road
No-one really knows just where to go
I meet them in the park
Faces don’t get pretty once it’s dark

I saw them in the news today
They didn’t look that sad suddenly

I’m going late at night
Some they shout, some end up in a fight
I meet them in the fare
They only seem to get up to go anywhere

I know I should be part of them
The heat, the booze, the laughs, I’m doing all I can

Maybe once they’re gone it doesn’t seem that wrong
They’ll be sleeping like a rose, all these tired ghosts

I’m going down the road
No-one really knows just where to go
I meet them in the park
Faces don’t get pretty once it’s dark
Track Name: Fool me now
Don’t fail me now
When I’m waking up beside you
Don’t fail me now
When I’m feeling blue

Don’t fail me now
When I’m done with all the dreaming
It’s only gonna fool me now
Only gonna fool me now

Don’t cut too deep
There’s another way to say it
Don’t cut too deep
Just go to sleep

Don’t face me now
When I’m trying to be tender
It’s only gonna fool me now
Only gonna fool me now

Dreams go by, they’re never gonna fool me now
Track Name: Mother watch over your son
My brother will know him and see him come
Hope I’ll see him later on
He’ll tell you ‘bout forgiving, sure will get you through
Hard times and keep an eye over you

Tell me a secret ‘bout Jesus right now
I’ll tell you a secret ‘bout him now
He’ll always keep on waiting for you to come along
Mother watch over your son

Trying to be happy but through this world I roam
No more hesitating when I’m gone
A cool, cool wind, a cool wind’s gonna blow
I my sails, I’m coming home

Tell me a secret ‘bout Jesus right now
I’ll tell you a secret ‘bout him now
He’ll always keep on waiting for you to come along
Mother watch over your son

Tell me, tell me, tell me a secret ‘bout Jesus right now
I’ll tell you, tell you, tell you a secret ‘bout him now

Tell me a secret ‘bout Jesus right now
I’ll tell you a secret ‘bout him now
He’ll always keep on waiting for you to come along
Mother watch over your son
Track Name: Off the pedestal
Yes I’m the man who’ll try tomorrow
Tried to do my best today
To end up feeling full of sorrow
I think I’ll lose my job anyway

No my boss sure don’t look that happy
For he’s working harder than I’ll ever do
Wonder why I don’t feel like trying
Tell me now what I’m afraid to lose

Please don’t try to let it go
I’m not ready to be free
Just let it go, let it go
Let it go tonight

I read their faces and I hear the riddles
Wondering what they might think of me
A thousand things left to be handled
Well I keep myself to all the small things that I need

Sure I know I should’ve said so
But I’m not willing to be here
In between a yes and no
There ain’t a place to go to

Please don’t try to let it go, I’m not ready to be free
Sure I know I should’ve said so, but I’m not willing to be here
Don’t know what I’d lose, but I’m not going in too deep
Once they’re inside and you’re outside it seems so hard to hide
Track Name: Sleeping on your doorstep
Thought I had it all today
But now they put it all away
Far away from me

Lost my friends along the way
Thought we’d stay the same
Think I lost it in the rain

I said I’d cross the ocean
And never could be found
I’m sleeping on your doorstep
I’m stuck to the ground

Would you rather be, would you rather be
A hero in the paper
Would you kindly please, would you please
Move out of my way

I said I’d cross the ocean
And never could be found
I’m sleeping on your doorstep
I’m stuck to the ground

I followed all the signs, did all to live my dreams
I wanted it so bad and never fell asleep
I said I’d cross the ocean and never could be found
I’m sleeping on your doorstep, I’m stuck to the ground

I said I’d cross the ocean and never could be found
I’m sleeping on your doorstep, I’m stuck to the ground
Track Name: Feel free
Trying to be brave but it’s easy doing nothing
You’d better wait
Don’t hear a word you say still I’m trying to be certain
Follow me

Few know what is wrong with me
But I feel free

See a shooting start but I know I’m far too yellow
It bothers me
Get home every night with a brand new story
You know I cheat

Fly on to another day
But you know I’m late

Few know what is wrong with me
Waiting when it’s time to sleep
I’m awake every morning every day
Still don’t know what else to say
But I feel free
Track Name: Window shopping
10.000 Dollars on my mind
Still don’t know what I hope to find
Well it gets worse the more you do
Whish there’d be someone to spell out the truth

Can’t you see the window shopping mob
I hope to lose

I pass an old man in the street
After one long day at the office, I’m finally free
Don’t give one dime I won’t even point him into the right direction
Crippled and blind, what he was hoping to find and to see in my eyes

Can’t you see the window shopping mob
I hope to lose

Don’t go out shopping when you’re hoping to find
Some peace of mind will do

When days grow long and the politicians sing
10.000 Dollars no they can’t set me free

Can’t you see the window shopping mob
I hope to lose
Track Name: Catching waves
Catching waves
They take me up & down
The make me swim & drown

I keep my eyes on the shoreline
‘Cause I might find
What I’ve been looking for

Then I wonder why
And how I never stopped believing
Wake me up now please
For I’ve been sleeping too long & too deep

I’ve been trying to get up now
I’ve been trying in my dreams
When I make my way across the ocean
I don’t seem to get somewhere near

Then I wonder why
And how I never stopped believing
Wake me up now please
For I’ve been sleeping too long & too deep
