Subaquatic Records proudly presents Peter Campanelli's debut album "Are you even there?".

His debut 14 track album features some of his dreamiest and progressive work to date, all recorded on a 4-track recorder, giving it an intensely vulnerable sound.

What completes the experience, however, is the album's visual accompaniment filmed by Peter himself whilst roaming the Great Plains. The 32-minute feature offers the viewer a window into the contemplative, psychedelic aesthetic of the album and makes the project a truly mesmerizing experience. 

Watch the Visual Accompaniment:

Side A: Goodness Knows, Peter Shows

Side B: H2O2

Written, Produced, Mixed and Mastered by Peter Campanelli

Track Name: Sand (the plan that I demand)
it might take a little time
to find the piece to being kind
but little man, are you feeling as if you can
like you really can, can understand
understand what i demand
Track Name: APE
in the time it takes to
build a certain frame around you
i've already lost my mind
figure out how to unwind
and in the time it takes
build and break and take it from you
i'm not certain of it's kind, peel it back it's just my rind

and in the time
the time it takes for me to scratch your head
well you know i will already
be on the way to being there
cause in the end you'll find me
with all of my faults behind me
a certain sprinkle in my ear
a tinkle only God could fear
and if you hurt the cactus
don't think that it won't hurt you back(us) (ryan backes)
cause it's got prickly prickly spines
prickly prickly prickly little spines
and i think i will discuss this
with all those people whom i trust with
my most deepest darkest fear
and everything that i hold real
and with your promise-sayo
you fill me up with promise-sayo
i look into what isn't mine
you looking deep into the slime

it's just a clever use of propaganda
what are you going to do?
the only thing you could

if you'd ask me alright i would tell you what's going on with this my insight how could things be going so wrong why are you uptight i'm sent here to make things right so give up your fight and surrender to my love is not the cancer i should only keep you headed towards the answer soon you'll find that all of the people in your mind fill you with the power to beat the only incline face the only meaning and you could be the inside push away up all of the being to the outside keeping track of all of the time that passes you by turning up to what you can't believe the old guy he is never telling the truth is hard to stand so don't relieve the plan you'll step all over my side i have really made it wide enough to lean on clean your act and try to keep on
Track Name: Film skin
don't you think it's time we had a little structure
i know what you want right now
how, when you're in the right hands
don't make me feel like a man
i guess i'll never understand baby, no i won't

after all this time, i think it might just rupture
all those organs that you need
plead, beg down on your knees
cause i'm not playing for free
and this is hard for me, baby, yes it is
Track Name: You yourself
i'll tell you what i've got to say to you
the only thing you need's what's makes you blue
and don't you got something to do?
