about

Songwriter Josh Schroeder and actress Meredith Adelaide met one cold and very early fall morning at the Little Nestucca River, in Oregon 2010. The two were on set as actors for a Levi's spec ad that featured the backdrop of the beautiful NW, and were called to action for a scene where Josh serenades Meredith in a tree. Trying to keep their minds off the cold between takes, Josh and Meredith began talking about art, life, music and their love of Portland, OR. They soon discovered that their common interests and ideas were a match, and shortly after began their artistic collaboration.

The duo released their full-length album, "Planet Music" on Oct. 4th, 2011. It is available through their website, iTunes, Amazon, CDBaby, Bandcamp, and Music Millennium in Portland, Oregon. Josh and Mer recently composed the network theme song for the BBC Kids Channel in Canada and they lent their voices, instrumental talents, and production style to the recording of the theme song.

Blending their love of music with film, photography, and the Portland lifestyle, Josh and Meredith developed a concept to showcase their collaborative efforts and their work as individual artists. They joked at themselves being "hipsters" and created a blog they call "Hipster Decadence" ( www.hipsterdecadence.tumblr.com). They keep fans, friends, and colleagues up to date on their creations through Hipster Decadence.

Track Name: From the Sea
to feel it once or twice before
swallow the high tide
within the beating of the shore
the grey of the wayside

from the sea, I listen low
adrift my soul, over the waves that grow
from a life so long ago

taking comfort by the stones
wait for the morning rise
when in the beating of the shore
words appear in the sky

from the sea, my minds afloat
I try to row over the ocean floor
from the sea, I listen low
adrift my soul, over the waves that grow
from a life so long ago
Track Name: Sly is the Devil
mean nothing whisper every word
feeling something cut through every turn
keep humming that’s not what you heard

patiently lift the curse

drawing lines that filter through your eyes
everyone’s a figure in disguise
they’ll hold you down to your demise

patiently lift the curse
but is it a virtue

it’s a lovely sound
from an ugly mouth
what goes around comes around

blind beggar, reap on what you’re worth
cause forced fate is not what you deserve
don’t you know that you cannot return?

sly devil, holds you by the hand
with intentions you don’t understand
his pension leads to nothingness

patiently lift the curse
but is it a virtue

it’s a lovely sound
from an ugly mouth
but you’re facing down
with a lonely frown
what goes around comes around
Track Name: Spaces
I don’t know how you could find
me from the stars in the sky
just in time

searching the earth for a sign
when will the planets align
just in time

honestly, you could help me to unwind
if you saw the way that I saw you from my side

when the spaces fly
on a spaceless night


I don’t know how you could find
me from the dark in the light
just in time

trying to capture the sun
and find that I’ve only begun
just in time

honestly, you could help me to unwind
if you saw the way that I saw you from my side

when the spaces fly
on a spaceless night

when the spaces fly
Track Name: Where Are You
I still know the way
but you get lost
keep toward pushin' it
and you'll keep pulling me
hold on, hold on

oh without love, oh love
where are you?

I could slip away
and just float on
in the light of day
won't you come?
hold on, hold on

without love, oh love
oh love where are you?

oh love, oh love
oh love, oh love,
where are you?

love, oh love
oh love, oh love
where are you?
Track Name: So It Goes
watch the behind the scenes/making-of video! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tE7oyyNFt2k&feature=player_embedded

so it goes
as I stay lying in bed
you arose
you may as well go ahead
no one knows
it's easy to forget me

play along
you know I'm smarter than that
see how wrong
I make you feel to come back
too afraid
to let my heart run free

better run
cause now the going is tough
I've become
a hidden rock in the rough
you have found
and now it's not so easy

so it goes
I'll do it over again
pass the time
till I can't feel anything
so afraid
to give my life up for love
Track Name: Stir (Lucid)
Watch the behind the scenes/making-of video here! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g5uow6oumUE&feature=related

don’t wanna be absurd
or say another word
don’t want to let you go
but my heart is in reverse
and it’s just another curse
that i haven’t lifted up

and it’s causing us to stir
but it isn’t so much worse
than what you lost
you move the chains and change the locks on me

don’t wanna be absurd
or say another word
but you have to let me know
but my heart is in reverse
and it’s just another curse
that i haven’t lifted up

and it’s causing us to stir
but it isn’t so much worse
than what you lost
you move the chains and change the locks on me
Track Name: Morning Eden Mars
morning lies against the summer sky
eyes that turn to gold in firelight
watch you slowly rise before me
as you took my mind
to the answer of my life

skin of leaves had stained her lips of wine
it could be the last of me this time
feel you coming, iceburgs drumming
pushing for the line
to the answer of my life

I tried taking back my eyes
but you're holding them so tight
and somehow I am blind
but I felt you here inside

if I give into your world
will you take away the dark
through the silent words we move
to the burning of a star

amor vincit omnia
amor vincit omnia
Track Name: Mind Control
stumble and rise
where will I find
my piece of mind

work to unwind
live to be fine
start to resign

it’s mind control
it’s mind control

don’t disagree
or you will see
how it will be

fail to be free
shot to the knees
killing the dream

it’s mind control
it’s mind control

mind control
it’s mind control
mind control
Track Name: Your Majesty
Hail from below crowned by the glow
Carved on the throne, no one will know
(I will find you)

I wanna fall beneath the trees
I wanna fall together

Watch the sun unfold
Thread that spins to gold

Hail to the heir, crowned in the glare
Held in the heart for all that is fair
(I have found you)

Higher than ordinary life I want to hide
Trying to tell you where I am

Skies of diamonds shine
As we intertwine
Track Name: Skeleton Key
wandering home somehow return
bare of your bones, what have you learned
thundering clouds, alive at night
dreaming aloud, drifting in rhyme
do you want to have a try?

we’ll take it as it goes
it’s everything, you know

nothing to fix, nothing to feel
lay in the bliss this is for real
picking the lock to what is free
lifting the fog, turning the key
do you want to have a try?

we’ll take it as it goes
it’s everything, you know
we’ll take it as it goes
it’s everything, you know

drifting in rhyme alive at night
answer to all you need to find

turning the key to what is free
answer to all you need to see
