about

The flashpoint where Courtnee ran out of fucks; A neurotic album presenting a conversation between multiple personalities, Cold Front (2018) expounds upon the themes of reclamation in Embodied, Live in Seattle (2011). Cold Front is the product of over 3 years of exploring the worlds between the beautiful ambient-electronic vocal landscape lullaby songs of CFR's "Not Applicable" era works, and vulgar ukulele diddies about pussies and assholes and dicks. Written almost entirely on the road, culminating into anthem tracks like Hey Hey and I Hate The Fucking Internet, Cold Front is a journey marrying subconscious shadows with glaring epiphanies, ultimately illustrating how we, when honoring the wisdom in our former selves at different stages of our lives, can develop our own mastery of what will forever lie within. Musically and genre eclectic while maintaining symmetry within Courtnee's distinct acoustic-electronic sound, Cold Front is sure to have a little bit of something to satisfy, surprise, and amuse every CFR fan -- and hopefully piss off everybody else.

Track Name: Strata
I've been waiting alone below
Track Name: Hey Hey
So when you say you wanna be a gypsy
do you mean you wanna be run outta town?
Cause when you claim to wanna be a gypsy
I don’t think you know what you’re talking about

So let me tell you a story bout a girl named Kat
Who changed her given name and took her lattes nonfat
was a lover makeshift mother and your missing rib
feeling those grown up pains as early as four years from ten

She had a well meaning daddy whom she meant the world
war torn off-white and struggling to raise a girl
who could beguile you all and leave you wanting more
Cuz hun it pays to be pretty, just don’t become a whore

Hey hey what the fuck does that mean
Hey hey is this not my body
Hey hey that's when I started to see

Why the boys won’t cry they’re stunted in their growth
They bottle it all inside, for me to hold
Like a trophy puppet girl made for evolving men
I’ve been your one and only daddy but at whose expense

I’d felt my rage internal turning sexual
pretending each odd pairing wasn’t transactional
I’ll disembowel your precious misogyny -- that’s right
and in the meantime I’ll just keep taking your money!

Hey hey fuck the patriarchy
Hey Hey and fuck your binary
Hey hey I’m gonna start with me
Go find your own recovery

So now white feminism’s not hard to grasp either
can’t claim we're all together when the playfield's uneven
with your girls day outings in pink pussy hats?
you racist TERFS don’t represent my clam-havin’ ass

Because we carry in our DNA
trauma over centuries
that will remain incomplete
until we give up the land and go the fuck back to England

Hey Hey fuck the patriarchy
Hey Hey and fuck your binary
Hey Hey I've claimed my agency
I’m gonna be the change I seek

Hey



So when you say you wanna be a gypsy
Track Name: Rong (Röyksopp)
What the fuck is wrong with you
You are so fucking wrong
Track Name: I Hate the Fucking Internet
I hate the fucking Internet today
Why did I ever enter this foray
of fallacies and emojis and circular dichotomies
I hate the fucking internet today

Oh, look, dismembered animals displayed
Go here, this is a cause that needs your aid
This one also, this one too! It’s more than any one can do
So it’s up to you to scare this sick world straight

My signal’s at one bar while I’m raging in my car
You’d think I’d stop reloading
Nuh ah. not when I’ve come so far

Cause someone’s wrong out on the internet today
The earth is flat, not spherical? mmkay.
Tone deaf comments, sneak dick pics
My creepy ex’s friend requests
I hate the fucking internet today

And as I read through your comment threads
your statements jumble in my head
to create this imaginary hosebeast
that I call the fucking internet

So fine, I’ll write a status of my own
Something witty, where my intellect is shown
Not a single like, not one fucking share
Pearls to the swine and no one cares

I hate the fucking internet
From Tribe to Live to Instagram
Can’t fix this world of shit we’re in
From Facebook Reddit or 4chan

Where spyware programs
pass as apps
and clickbait headlines
pass as facts
and every move I make is tracked

I’m pushing back and up against
Self righteous false equivalence
Manipulating missives
Vicious anonymity
Impotent criticism

While algorithms shape my brain...
It’s sick to see how hooked I am
while I hate the fucking internet

Again
Track Name: Wanna Gno Dick
If I wanna know what your dick thinks about me
better trust I’ll ask it myself
If I wanna know what your dick thinks about me
not for long would you wait

Da da da da..

If I wanna know what your dick thinks about me
understand I’ll ask it myself
Unless I wanna know what your dick thinks about me
keep it all
to your
self

Da da da da...

Stop telling me about your dicks
Stop telling me about your dicks.
Track Name: The Pussy Song
Liquid gold
briny deep
a sassy vanilla with a touch of cream
sweet dill
merlot
fresh baked bread
honey dripped on leather

they’re all me
I ripen seasonally

and I aint gonna fuck you if my cookie don’t smell right
ixnay on the lovin’ if my muffin ain’t all right
ain’t gonna love you if my soufflé don’t spring back
ixnay on the lovin’ if my pussy don’t smell

drop that shame

maybe chill on them kegels
also? cream discharge is fuckin’ normal
all these misconceptions have taken their toll
btw, it’s the VULVA less we’re talking the hole I dip with glee
while I track myself closely

cause I ain’t gonna fuck you if that fronthole don’t smell right
ixnay on the lovin’ if my friendzone’s not all right
aint gonna love you even if you call me uptight
ixnay on the lovin’ if my pussy don’t smell

cause it’s probably bacterial
and I shouldn’t be spreading it around
and I likely got it from you anyway
so get your junk checked out and drop that
shame
drop that shame
Track Name: What Kind of Asshole Are You?
What kind of asshole
...are you?
What kind of asshole are you?
I know what kind of asshole I am
But what kind of asshole are you?

Are you numb are you numb
are you fulla fuckin’ cum to your nostrils?
Are you mean are you mean
Do you hate girls who have peen -- fuck you

Get away get away get the fuck away from me
Take the hint take the hint take the hint
or this is gonna get ugly.

Now I’m trying really hard to be less ableist
Less damn phobic and attacking all my *ism’s
And holy shit just being near you I can feel my balls receding
and I’m crawling to my lizard brain and animating instinct
and I’m gonna chew your face off and puke it down your throat
if you don’t shut up

So what kind of asshole are you?
What kind of asshole are you?
I know what kind of asshole I am
but what kind of asshole are you?

Do you stink do you stink
do you wear a god damn fedora?
Do you reek do you reek
of unacknowledged white male privilege?
Get away get away get the fuck away from me

Take the hint take the hint take the hint
take the hint take the hint take the hint
take the motherfucking hint
take the hint take the hint take the hint
or this is gonna get ugly
Track Name: Buy My Fucking Music
In our modern world
so rife with knowledgie
We’ve all been trained from bitter age
to expect most things for free
Ignoring the declining as our economics fold
While we waste our lives producing lines
obediently droning

So buy my fuckin’ music, asshole

It’s true I get creative to avoid this paradigm
Parasitic capitalism’s the reason why I fight
But I’ve also gotta eat, man
silly as it seems
I can’t sustain myself on just fancy words so
show me the money and

Buy my fucking music asshole

Lalalala, lala la la la, lalala la la la
Pay attention to what you’re funding

And buy my fucking muse
Track Name: Mean Girl
No returns involved

No returns involved
I’m keeping you for the long haul

Broken dreams got nothing on me
your broken wings will mend you’ll see
I’m keeping you for the long haul
I’m here for you for the long haul
