ben schroder such a cohesive, dreamy album. i can't listen to just one song - i just end up getting sucked in and listening to the entire album again. Favorite track: Shadow's Song.

Abel I had the pleasure of meeting Warren and Co. in Dallas. Seeing him preform live is stuck in my head like a cute girl, or a really tasty breakfast. Favorite track: Glow (v079).

Jeremy / HI54LOFI This is one of those albums where you kinda need to listen from start to finish, otherwise you're just not listening to it right. Favorite track: Ontario Gothic.

Seen through the glass, take the day to rest Reinvent the past, feel it in my chest Tide begins to split, watch the coast decay Lost my voice getting lit, lost the words to say Safe beneath the shade, heal this part of me Counting forwards now, to who we want to be See you once a year, snow begins to melt Describing the fear, remember how it felt?
2.
Ripped from the ground Car arrives at location remote Put on your coat You'll never know I'll cross the fields and part the crops Bend all the stalks We're waiting on encoded signs, hidden won't harm They won't disarm Been here before Cold winter stasis will not thaw It broke my jaw And from the fields You feel the pattern laid below How far it goes You'll wait and see, when seasons change we'll leave our coats We'll clear our throats

Glow (v079) 05:17
What if I become What I left behind Still I glow
4.
Feel it go wrong, goodbye, so long Shine a light, I want to explain Open me up to this pain My shadow was drown in a sea underground No strength to fight back the waves A crashing tide's warm embrace My hand to my chest, drift off from the rest Echoes out inside of these walls Remembering our phone calls Your shadow in time, by chance or design Fall into the fear you avoid A place you thought you'd destroyed
5.
I was trapped under concrete Built from the memory Of all the daydreams That I buried underneath Now find me a way to divide All of the noise on the other side We'll change where we live in the fall Soon it will feel like nothing is wrong And I could see who I should be Through a past that casts it shadow down over me In empty fields on summer nights I feel the flashing lights Teeth clenched in moonlight A limitation, want to ignite Reset my biology The imitation, the apology And I felt just like a child I'm taking it all from the other side Driving with you in your car The home that I know seems so far Spring, fall I've lost it all (the morning fog) Your empty street where we would meet These parking lots bless us with peace Your light has strayed, there's no release

Altars 05:21
Plastic roses line empty altars See the faces, I'm feeling altered Confronting the fear that lives on your breath In dreams he's still here Message left in the basement I walk down these endless hallways Drugs and weekends can't change my days Leaving the lines you've drawn on your own All sorts of crimes Meet me in, in the basement Step outside my house It's happening most every day I held to nothing I have nothing left to say Plastic roses line empty altars See the faces, I'm feeling altered Confronting the fear that lives in your chest In dreams he's still here Message left in the basement
