Alejandro Yanez This album for me has a timeless feeling to it and it's intricate in some ways yet easy to listen to while working or just commuting...

Oysters is def. my favorite the only thing I regret is not having known about this band earlier. Cheers!

Gage Herrmann Every once in a while, a band comes along that seems to have understood exactly what kind of music I want to listen to and then released an amazing album. This is one of those albums. I've listened to it 6 times in the last 2 days. Favorite track: Layabout.

Forest 03:09
prophet one singing along rescue dawn turn the light on exhausted thoughts in my head rays of red feel them coming forest daylight got to keep moving thaw out these frozen eyes expose the lies creeping in your mind before they organize floating home all on my own finally found the right tone still climbing almost to bed lay my head seed’s been planted
breaking away from all the madness of funneling foolish things inside flee but with life upon the requiem I know I saw that you were taking what should be left behind I'll find out where you're going on that you can rely lost in a cloud of empty messages flushed in the fallout of your lies fencing with flies that fill the atmosphere you go but know you land no blow
Layabout 02:45
Beelzebug on my rug take me there through the air fly and land in my hand slowly drowning in the sinking sand rabbit hole I'll follow jumping out my window in this dream dopamine coarsed through my brain and turned black to green and it seems the enemies have nearly all aligned in and out we layabout been wasting all our time she told me stay asleep you must find Mister Key on his head playing dead but there is no probability show me sir how to piece what you call phalanges in the swamp there I'll sing of shapes that encompass everything
Calumny 03:44
the voice of calumny it doesn't sleep alone no never silent endlessly pretending to know what we don't know no never silent folding in shed away the story changed today but who remembers pointlessly pretending to know what we don't know no never silent voices so old can't keep quiet buy what they're told countless I know never silent lets mute them all
Father 01:53
highlight transparence you can only see when it makes a sound become transparent you can only feel when you hit the ground she's coming up clean through the muddy water says all that we are is a warm voice I’m out in the cold foggy with the others all that I need is warm voice get out of the cold join me on the inside you're already warm in the morning everyone knows find it on the inside all that we are is a warm voice
Oysters 03:55
happy oysters in tow hold the cord and ride away half awake in summer fall asleep and ride away with me in and out of slumber sitting with my sister Soon there we all remember happy oysters on the vacant noon
I know the way and then I'm lost again grass is growing underneath my skin I will cut when I have a new vision I lost my way and then I'm found again get goin’ and cut away
Face Plant 02:26
Aleister 03:53
Aleister I know you know Aleister I know you contemplate which way to go contemplate surrender Aleister I know you know I know you know elephants in yellow clothes are listening camouflage the narrative alternate flow in between the lines a code surrender time goes by strange it seems no structure in meaningless things savory dawn on me permanent markings in every key Thelema an orange of mine Thelema won't squeeze dry drink it in Perdurabo suffocate surrender I'm not over it and I won't forget I'll go home and sleep for days up on top of all that platitude there's a room with a view when I find it I won't stay
Nothing Left 03:44
if there's nothing left to know I'll go lift the roots of trees exposed I'll go and find out my mind is in the gutter kicking rocks over the heads of others if there's nothing left to know I'll go break the mold in form and flow I'll go and realize there's nothing to recover picking locks but nothing to discover
