friii I like to discover bands from all over the world. The Great Wilderness from Costa Rica blew me away with their melancholic beautiful noise.Velvet Undergound meets Joy Division meets My Bloody Valentine. Ingenious. I hope they release new stuff one day. Favorite track: 1956.

1956 03:40
When the angel of death gives birth to a child the sky will be grey, the moon will be bright days and weeks trying to save your children taking control, protecting the wounded. These are the final pages in this book the things that you borrow, the treasures you just took repent on your knees and you might escape from famine deal or no deal, burning the liars.

Ada 06:10
Held her dead body up to my face never thought I'd ever do this. I will sing a thousand lullabies as you sleep with flowers in your arms. Everything was painted blue and green when the blind man played his tambourine. It rained and rained the voices, my name. Running nose, frozen veins don't remember me as I am today. Pretty baby, lost and gone after this day I'll come undone. Paint my lips rosey red as I lay on my bed. It rained and rained the voices, my name. Ada, come back Ada, please come back.

Silverscreen 03:51
She took a deep breath before jumping off the bridge I never knew, I never knew you could fly and sink. He held out his hand before crossing the street he never thought, he thought they'd stare. It is what it is every time I wake and when I go to sleep I could run away but I stay and speak this is what I say ohhhhh. They couldn't hold her back. why do you cry like this? I never knew, I never knew you yearned the silver screen. We never walked away surviving all there is you never knew, they never thought we'd last. It is what it is every time I wake and when I go to sleep I could run away but I stay and speak this is what I say ohhhhh.

Sandbox 05:04
The newborn child wants to get a present that charming man wants to hold your hand. He doesn't know the right way to say it but I'm sure you'll understand. They'll find us where the Sun won't shine. Sleeping well I cannot find another reason to complain, a new beginning with no end. Sit next to me and we'll talk about it, I'll start to cook if we later wash. Yes I'm sure sometimes I can't stand it, but I know you'll understand. They'll find us where the Sun won't shine. Sleeping well I cannot find another reason to complain, a new beginning with no end.

Kiddy Plane 04:27
I thought you were untamable a wild creature with no name. Never saw you as an answer, but you were a pretty game. In and out of the covers never sure of times or dates. It was never a resistance nor an avant garde parade. All I need is an answer, guess I could use some rain. All I want is the certainty that I will never see you again. Kiddy Plane. And the sheets were torn and burned down when I killed the tortured pets. I was all covered in cinder and I didn't know my name. His green eyes bruised and bloodshot with a smirk on his face. Run away from the explosion I would never be the same. All I need is an answer, guess I could use some rain. All I want is the certainty that I will never see you again Several sunsets passed before me and the sky was burning red. All the sparkles twist and tumble I will never speak your name. Kiddy Plane.
