shaun peden Easily the best album of 2015 and criminally under-rated. Had the distinct pleasure of seeing them live as well and the execution of each song was mind blowing. something for everyone here. Favorite track: Dark Fap Police Car.

Velcro Everything about this record is perfect and every song is insanely catchy. All of the instrumental work blows my mind and the vocals are totally ethereal. This release is impeccable. Favorite track: Dark Fap Police Car.

Track Name: Salamander Sweater
Over time
The partials will
All but die
The earth exhales
Catching light
In your hands
Always try
But nothing

It's moves
Moves beneath
Your feet
Dog isn't dead
Just playing hard to meet
Track Name: Trop Od
I don't want to say
That you were wrong
And I don't want to say
Track Name: Summer Camp Swimming Pool
We found her in greener pastures the faces rushing by
Like turning pages from and atlas
The tired tones of hour turn to stone
In this escarpment staring down a hard rock face
And shadowy branches reaching out
And dragging us back to sleep
Four years of ashes put out like fire
And our dark eyes
The tired tones of hours turning in on them self
I broke my back walking backward out of this nest
Stepping back on future it's self
And starting to relapse myself

It's not funny or true and I'm sorry
It's not funny or true and I'm sorry

I find it hard to believe
That when I grow up
I'll be anything
To believe that you and me
Could ever be I'm so nieve
Never fall behind or find anything to laugh about
But now I'm happy now
Just think about when you cried into my sweater
You'll always be the first to make me think twice

It's not funny or true and I'm sorry
It's not funny or true and I'm sorry
