about

Taking inspiration from the original concept behind the founding of Saddle Creek, as an attempt to highlight our home city through music and art, we began the Document Series in 2017. Each release featured in the Document Series is comprised of an exclusive record featuring unreleased music from artists outside of the label's roster, along with a specially curated zine created by the artist. The seventh installment in the series comes from Baltimore, MD's based Outer Spaces.

Outer Spaces is the name of the electric guitar based indie singer/songwriter project of Cara Beth Satalino. Formerly making music both under her own name and in the short-lived punk power trio Witches, Satalino began recording the first Outer Spaces material herself at her home in Athens, GA. 2013 saw the release of a vinyl 7” on Matador records as part of their Single Going Home Alone subscription series. The following year, they released the Garbage Beach EP on Salinas Records. Outer Spaces full length debut, A Shedding Snake, arrived via Don Giovanni Records in 2016, citing Murmur-era R.E.M. as an influence.

After touring with acts such as Ted Leo, Waxahatchee, Palehound, Radiator Hospital and Clap Your Hands Say Yeah in 2016 and 2017, Outer Spaces has returned with new material for the Teapot #1 b/w Children Love to Run 7”.

Track Name: Teapot #1
Strumming my guitar,
I get a strange and fleeting feeling.
I may exist, upon this earth
For some reason.
I may exist, or I may not
I’ve not decided.
Am I the tea, or just the pot?
Am I divided?

Floating in space, I levitate
Like sheets of paper.
I hold my breath, and let out
Perfumed water vapor.
I hold my breath and count to ten,
Over and over.
I am the space between the words,
Crimson and clover.

Crimson and clover…

I am a guitar string.
I am the verse of the song.
Maybe it’s this one that I’m singing right now.
Yeah, I think this is it.
I shouldn’t waste my breath I guess.
I’ve just got one thing to say. 
I’ve just got, one thing, one thing, one thing to say.
I’ve just got one thing to say.
I’ve just got one thing, I’ve just got one thing,
I’ve just one thing to say, I’ve just got one thing.

I want to love myself, and I want to love you.
Track Name: Children Love to Run
If I were to wait for you, I might be here all night.
Look into my eyes, 
Do you see it’s not alright?

Late at night I think of you,
I wonder where you’ve gone.
I listen to your songs,
But the words come out all wrong.
I’m opening my eyes to something,
I’ve known all along.

If I were to wait for you, I would not hold my breath.
I’d turn blue in the face, before I realize my fate.
I’m old enough to know by now, 
to learn from my mistakes,
That the things you ignore,
That you’ve tossed on the floor,
They’ll be around a month from now,
They don’t disappear.

I walked for hours around the town,
I felt a missing space,
Somewhere left behind,
Learn to fill it up with time.
You’re somewhere out there moving on, 
To the next one in line.

Children love to run,
Children love to run,
Children love to run,

But I am not a child…
