Cass Close to perfect. Zac & Maryn's voices pair exceptionally well and sound effortlessly balanced against the instrumentation, with more gorgeous melodies than you can shake a stick at. Favorite track: Fed Up With Hunger.

Vanessa Boivin-Drolet makes me think of a mix of Arcade Fire and Chad Vaghaalen.

Totally love it. Favorite track: Falling Off.

womu Not typically the kind of music I listen to, but I'd include this album in my short list of flawless records. Albums that don't have a song I'd consider to be less than excellent. Favorite track: Falling Off.

Jerered An amazing album by a truly incredible band. This album has helped me so much with artistic blocks and just generally been a huge influence and inspiration for my music. Each track is filled with interesting and thoughtful lyrics, captivating vocals and harmonies, and creative and unique instrumentals. Favorite track: We Are All Beads On The Same String.

Ted Where do I even begin with how excellent this record is? Lyrics are articulate, poetic, metaphysical explorations but also grounded and free from pretension. There's such a wonderful balance between energetic chaos and calculated delicacy in every composition. Favorite track: Takmit.

Blood Bath 02:28
You're drenched in blood still warm with wear The crumb-crusted and God caught in your hair Emergent from this sea of wheat The flesh of God is flayed for you to eat Well Sonny's in the room burning back the condensation Sonny's in the room What was it you wanted me to do? I was only really ever one thing Wait on Wait on I'm gone in the night gone in the night Wait on Wait on You wait for all time wait for all time Don't I forget anything I ever wanted to know? Down with Ra den fwee fo laun an ree a li sin Wait on Wait on I'm gone in the night gone in the night

Daendors 03:20
I spend the day indoors Rolling my mind round undone chores Feeling guilty for nothing in particular ---- And over and over I thought What is this thing that I've wrought? How is it that my leg's caught up and away up and away And over and over again Nothing I want to defend Nothing I could recommend Nothing to say nothing to chase away ---- I spent the night inside Rolling the rules round the hills of my mind and what is right if I am never justified? You broke your ribs for this. I hope it was worth every cell split. And what are we besides agreements of the senses? Own my days. Live my days. Rip my days. Couldn't find enough to do Couldn't find enough to occupy you

Happy Alone 03:18
Guilty pleasures at best gouge the floors of our chests this the only vestige left Next time will be better I guess ---- When I'd be alone Happy alone I'd be alone Happy alone Call what you want and I'll be alone ---- To presuppose this precipice could be climbed by anyone of us that was my misjudgment I guess I best just shut and and face that I'm not one too Be three-fourths sore When I crave a split lip I get it quick I'd be alone Happy alone

When we're barely awake And the heat of the day is weight I wait to sate my sorry longings for your rolling over And yet, here I sweat somehow familiar with needs that I never met How does one so young become so fed up with hunger? ---- No I know I Know I know I'm safe from you want No I, know I, Know I, know I got hallways I could haunt And I know it's all for you And I know it's raining flaming sulfur fumes ---- When we're doused in the same flames Burning without hesitating Wet beds spread with flesh that's quenchless and I miss behavior No I know I, know I know I want what you want No I, know I, Know I, know I got hallways I could haunt And I know it's all for you And I know it's raining flaming sulfur fumes Long days I spend in the businesses of Low wage heavy with this listlessness so Don't my dollars weight the same as any other? Don't that buy me rights to buy what I desire?

Falling Off 04:10
I fell from Heaven Head heavy with this message The flesh is your reference for knowing the soul When I was the leaven The yeast they steep the bread in what I said I meant as the sediment In bowls of swollen dough Don't I know Old as you are all you ever do is wander You'll come around someday soon you'll see Apoptosis You're always ending Life in the body is an intention All that you know in the instance is lost in the waves of existence A laceration sufficiently deep my body still wears a scar in the knee So when you live off every scrap of your self take solace in knowing as somebody else though time will tear our bodies off the you that I knew will not be forgot No the you that I knew will never be lost Apoptosis You're always ending Life in the body is an intention All that you love in the instance is lost in the waves of existence You are a current You are a tide and of the contents the tenuousness of life All that you wait on All that you long for when you attain it you will be no more

Waste of a face never yours for the keeping Slapped across your head Then with what little time remained set out to forget it Yonder would break days plump with thunder of new and glorious morn Hours would spill souring still despite our adornments for them all in good time you break before the light so soaked in wine it dries your will to fight but everyday is never enough sucks tucked in the folds of your guts contents of which blaze in your eyes Jesus, I'm drunk on this spirit tonight ---- If only the good ones die young I'd pray your corruption would swift like a thief in the night Right I pluck my right eye right out ---- Yanked from your slumber What ominous portent dangles in your face? Rife with sprites falling on knives crowd into your gaze well sight is a sense and in your defense one I might liken to... the manner in which you touch what you clutch and the that the wind touches you ---- If only the good ones die young I'd pray your corruption would swift like a thief in the night Right I pluck my right eye right out If only the young ones die good I'd pray your corruption would slip like a slit in the wrist hack the hands, redeem the rest

Takmit 03:05
Would you come down if I were to call your name? Could I calm down if I could recall your name? So how'd it taste to drink the light inside your name? Smoldering molars and singeing trachea Premonitions even if we count the days would not save us, even if I get my way So down that trumpet resonating with your sigh Often spoke of but seldom realized Lust isn't blind though It's just a simple kind of supple seeing eye dog running into new walls so you were a kid somewhere with long hair drinking in parking lot you've got your car you've got your reasons you got your favorite restaurant The flesh is shed eat bread instead and you'll never thirst again While I grow old, you grow wild would you come down if I were to call your name?
9.
So Longer 01:11
How I long to reek of the stink inside your house. How I long to wreak all the havoc in your dreams. I was so long, as I recall. I was so long. Well Sonny's in the room burning back the condensation Sonny's in the room, what was it you wanted me to do?
10.
Uppercutter 03:10
Clove spurs in your lungs Rasp over the phone Serve to sharpen every groan thrown ---- You know you know you know. Upper cutter you take me down Your blood sending bludgeons find me now When I was one among the wave You're tongue had sung it's final phrase I was only one good time away False if I falsify the frame Even if hit just now The stinger lingers anyhow ---- Swallow all your chewing gum limp into the setting sun I for one will not be sung to sleep

Visions 03:18
Had I in my right mind left alone visage devoid of flesh and bone? When I wasn't 16 I used to see strange things some vaguely resembling ghosts or spectral hosts I was always fond of the notion I was drenched in some spirit ocean And all my visions merely the symptom of eyes open so wide That I could peer into the other side You're the freckles all along the hairline Revelations from feeble spirt half-lifes You're the ghost that I was born to know You're the throat from which the echo's thrown One day without warning the spirits stopped their warring The devil ceased imploring I said banished from my bed Or had I hallucinated?
13.
Dark Arc 03:44
Are my eyes set to deep? Prohibiting the gleam from being seen while I weep away the shade Or all my eyes all inside? just begging for a little leak of light That's the cost though to know no shadow Your gut swallows the sharpened edge as if pre-perforated so tell me which one wears the worst? your sharper spade or harder earth? We will not be one We will not be won over You said we learn from our mistakes Salt pillars and garden snakes so I made myself a history buff only made me more hopeless We will not be one We will not be won over We will not be won We will not be won over I want nothing more.

Rotted away the ides of your May As far as falls from Grace are placed I guess you're graciously effaced But don't you let me down again Don't you let me down again Don't you let me down so gently The wine is mine to serve to dribble on your skirts The napkin dab is a task best left for the guests to work But don't you let me down again Don't you let me down again Don't you let me down so gently Wholly incomplete or holy and complete Don't I feel you when you weep We're all just beads on the same string seemingly discrete tethered inextricably No eve ain't naive no more No you've no use to know you anymore But don't you let me down again Don't you let me down again Don't you let me down so gently
