Rodeo This is such a fun album, from a band that's at the forefront of it's genre. From the title track, to "Greying", this album is masterfully constructed throughout. The energy, the composition and the overall feel are all on point. If you still don't own this album, you really should! Favorite track: EMERALDAS.

Serena Excellent release from Seattle based band Red Martian. Such a great balance of tones and moods all the way throughout the album. I've always been a fan of alternative rock and this one is up there in my favorites for me. "Petty Happiness" was my favorite track. Laid back and the lyrics are a perfect fit for the production around it. Can't wait to see what's next. Favorite track: PETTY HAPPINESS.

Hipster Visto No Me Acuerdo I was looking for a good alternative rock album and this one is exactly what I was looking for. Powerful guitars, good sounds and a very professional composition. It sounds a bit like My Bloody Valentine with Kevin Parker as a singer, which is really cool Favorite track: EMERALDAS.

Bree Morcroft A very productive unit, this album sits in the grungey, slacker rock, shoegaze type pigeonhole, but isn't really typical of just one main sound. Lots of variety on offer and the opening two tracks are probably the best place to start to get an idea what you are in for. I love that they can produce a real crushing / heavy and almost uncomfortable sound without it going for the kill, a sign of great musicianship. You'll need to give some tracks more time than others, but it'll be worth it. Favorite track: EMERALDAS.

Bradley Rust Guitar is boss on this one. It sets the tone, the pace and is always up front and centre regardless of the song. It roars in the punk moments, it dominates the heavier draining moments and glides along the slower parts intricately where it shines most. As with most shoegaze music, you need to be in the mood, this won't pump you up for a big night out, but it will take you on quite a ride if you have the time to give it. Best listened to with no distractions and a good dose of volume. Favorite track: APRIL.

Track Name: SLOW MOTION SAMURAI
OUT OF TIME
SLOW MOTION LINE
THROUGH WALLS OF STONE
CUT FLESH TO BONE

I RIDE THE TIDE
SLOW MOTION NIGHT

THROUGH HALLS OF STONE
I WALK ALONE
I SEE NO LIGHT
IN TANTO OR KATANA MIGHT

NOW I ROAM
THROUGH EMPTY ZONES
TO SERVE A LORD
WHO HAS LOST HIS SOUL

AND FELT THE FRIGHT
FORGOT HIS RITE

NOW I FALL
BUT STILL STAND TALL
BUSHIDO CODE
WILL BE RETOLD
AND YOU'LL FIND PRIDE
IN WHAT THEY CONCEAL
AND HIDE
Track Name: EMERALDAS
CAN YOU SEE IT THERE
JUST BEYOND UNKNOWN
I HEAR THEY'RE ALL ALONE

SEE THE PAINTED SHINE
THE RAIN HAS LEFT BEHIND
IT'S SOMETHING I CALL HOME

THEY COME FROM ALL AROUND
TO HEAR THE FEEL THE SOUND
TO START OVER AGAIN

I GUESS IT'S DIFFERENT HERE
THE RAIN DOES BRING ME CHEER
FOR THAT I CAN'T COMPLAIN

BUT YOU WON'T LIKE IT ANYWAY
SAY GOOD BYE TO SUNNY DAY
COS YOU WON'T LIKE IT ANYWAY
SAY GOOD BYE SAY GOOD BYE

IF YOU DON'T LIKE THE RAIN
IF CLOUDS CAN CAUSE YOU PAIN
THEN WHY DO YOU COMPLAIN

I THINK YOU'VE GOT IT WRONG
THE SUN IS WHAT YOU LONG
HEAD EAST ON I-90

COS YOU WON'T LIKE IT ANYWAY
SAY GOOD BYE TO SUNNY DAY
COS YOU WON'T LIKE IT ANYWAY
SAY GOOD BYE SAY GOOD BYE

Track Name: APRIL
NOW IT'S APRIL I CAN SEE WHAT'S IN MY MIND
LONELY APRIL SPREADING BLUE THIN INTO TIME
FOGGY MORNING YOU SHOULD SEE THIS KIND OF PEACE
BUT ON THE TV THEY ALL PRAY FOR SOME RELIEF

COME AND SEE ME SO I CAN SEE THAT YOU ARE HERE
COME AND SEE ME SO I CAN FEEL THAT YOU ARE NEAR

JUST THIS MORNING COUNTING GREY CLOUDS OVER HEAD
NO NEED FOR COUNTING I CAN SENSE THE SUN IS DEAD
FOR IT IS WINTER IT'S A SOLACE THAT WE NEED
BUT ON THE TV THEY ALL PRAY FOR IT TO CEASE

COME AND SEE ME SO I CAN SEE THAT YOU ARE HERE
COME AND SEE ME SO I CAN FEEL THAT YOU ARE NEAR
COME AND SEE ME SO I CAN SEE THAT YOU ARE REAL
COME AND SEE ME SO I CAN SEE THAT YOU ARE NEAR

Track Name: AWAY
SO YOU'RE OUR ROCK STAR NOW
RIDING SAFE IN YOUR MOMMIES CAR
SHE TAKES YOU TO YOUR SHOW
WHERE YOU SELL PRE-SALE TICKETS TONIGHT
YOU'RE GONNA MAKE IT TIGHT
AND THEY'LL PLAY YOU RIGHT

YOU THINK YOU CAN FLY NOW

YOU SIGNED YOUR LIFE AWAY
IT COULD OF HAPPENED ANYDAY
YOU SIGNED IN PEPSI'ED BLOOD
BUT YOU COULD SEE IT THROUGH
YOU'RE SUCH A FOOL
AND I'M WATCHING YOU

GO ON

YOU DREAMED YOU'D GET AWAY
BUT IT COULDN'T HAPPEN ANYWAY
A DREAMED YOU'D STAY ALIGHT
BUT YOU COULD SEE IT TRUE
YOU'RE SONY'S TOOL
AND I'M WATCHING YOU

I'M WATCHING YOU DIE NOW
Track Name: THE EMPTY SOUND
YOU SLEEP SO DEEP
CAN FEEL NO PAIN
YOUR HEART DISSOLVES
CAN FEEL NOTHING

NOW SING THE SONG
THE WORDS RESIGN
MY HAND PLAYS THE CHORD
MY VOICE SINGS THE WORD

SOMEBODY HAD HIM LOOK THE OTHER WAY
AS DREAMS SEEM FAILED LEFT COLD IN STASIS
A CALL TO CHANGE IT COULD NEVER ARRIVE
AN EMPTY BOTTLE FALLS
BUT NOBODY LISTENING TO THE EMPTY SOUND
Track Name: ON YOU
SOME TIMES I WAKE UP
I CAN'T SAY I'M ALL HERE
SOME TIMES I WONDER
I WANDER IN MY FEAR

AND NOW I'M WEIGHTY
I'M WAITING ALL THE TIME
TIME FOR MAYBE
ABOUT YOU

COS I WILL PURSUE
ALL OF YOU
AND I WILL ABSORB
THE LIGHT THAT SHINE BEFORE
AND I WILL CONSUME
ALL OF THAT IS YOU
COS I WILL IGNORE
THE LIGHT THAT SHINES THROUGH

AND NOW I'M GUESSING
IT'S SOMETHING IN MY HEAD
I WANDER MAYBE
I SHANT GET OUT OF BED

COS NOW I'M LAZING
I'M GAZING ALL THE TIME
UPON YOU MAYBE
SOME WAY

SOMEONE MAKE HIM WAKE UP SOON
TELL HIM WE'RE STILL WAITING ON YOU
ON YOU

SOME MIGHT SAY IT'S JUST BEGUN

SOMEWHERE TIME
IN MY MIND
HERE I REWIND
ALL THE TIME
AND YOU CAN TOO
YOU OUGHT TO
AS WE GO ON

SO I SAY
AS DREAMS GO WASHED AWAY
NO TIME FOR PLAY
YOU ACT AS IF YOU DIDN'T KNOW
BUT YOU'LL MOVE ON
THOSE DREAMS YOU SAY YOU OWN
BUT NOT FOR LONG
IT'S JUST LIFE
IT'S OVERDUE

AUGHT TOME TIME
OF MY MIND
HERE I REWIND
ALL THE TIME
AND YOU SHALL TOO
YES ALL OF YOU
AS WE GO DOWN

YOU CAN'T
FIGHT IT
CAN'T YOU SEE
