    Restless is about trying to find rest in a busy city - amongst other things! Thanks to Stian Vedøy for backing vox. Recorded, Mixed, and Mastered by Forest Child Music Published by PAK JÖI Release: 9/12/16 I've decided that i'm not gonna lose my mind Hypervisual; distracted by bright lights My heart beats in four four time, but sometimes five On the corner of this crowded street Singing parables of old friends, busking for black coffee Now wide eyed with a wider smile 'Cos this narrative is bigger than any rooftop I could climb So take heed, oh take heed Of that blood red burgundy sky When you feel like you're losing your mind Fast as the summer tides So take heed, oh take heed Of that blood red burgundy sky When the world declares war on your time Girl, rest those tired eyes Whilst the parties sell their plans In papers that I just can't buy I'll try to wash the blood off my hands Through songs that I just can't write Tell me, where is my peace of mind? Take all my shortfalls, take all my doubts Let 'em burn up in August droughts So hard to be still, but I can't think why Oh rest find my restless mind Oh rest find my restless mind So take heed, oh take heed Of that blood red burgundy sky When you feel like you're losing your mind Fast as the summer tides So take heed, oh take heed Of that blood red burgundy sky When the world declares war on your time Girl, rest those tired eyes

    sticking with the theme of happy sounding love songs, here's the latest addition... "cliché"! i hope you all enjoy it, i had a lot of fun writing it and i think it's rather fun to listen as well. :-) i've also noted that people really like having lyrics so here they are haha: i walked into the room and i then i saw your face you looked me in the eye i wanted to erase myself, myself i didn’t wanna fall but then i stepped right in i looked down at the ground and then i felt it right within, it was too late for me (late for her) you took a step forward and tilted your head with a curious glance you stared and i felt dead, oh my god, i think i’m dying! you said “hey” and i said “hello” what’s your name? i’d really like to know about you, too bad i stopped at “hello.” i just stared and you grinned and looked right back it felt like just one big whirlwind one big whirlwind over the next few days we got to talking with every single word i started falling farther and farther for you you were witty and so charming you swept me off my feet you made me laugh you made me blush oh no one could compete (no one could compete!) it seemed to good to be true (it was too good to be true) i wanted to be with you (and only with you) we clicked like legos or the clacking of tap shoes you say “hey” i said “hello, how was your day?” you said “better now” with a smile. oh what a cliché. but to be honest it made my day! i didn’t wanna fall but then i stepped right in i looked up at your face and those eyes , they drew me in, it was too late for me that’s what we were a simple cliche it wasn’t made to work but i wouldn’t have it any other way you were witty and so charming you swept me off my feet you made me laugh you made me blush oh no one could compete (no one could compete!) it seemed to good to be true (it was too good to be true) i wanted to be with you (and only with you) we clicked like legos or the clacking of tap shoes you say “hey” i said “hello, i gotta know, do you feel this way?” you said “yeah i do, but i was scared of what you might say…” that’s all we were, a silly cliché i still think you’re cute but maybe it’s better this way bah duh dum bah duh dum bah duh duh duh duh dum bah duh dum that’s okay we’re just a little cliché duh dah dum, and that’s okay!

    I used to be an older man Oh god when did i get so young I had a tremor in both hands and ashes in my lungs Is that my daughter speaking I’d like to talk to my son They tell me i’ve been dreaming My life has just begun But i once was a man I once was a father And i could cook you dinner like no other In our house in the country With a pocket full of dollars And you couldn’t have been a better mother I was older then Back when i was your man I caught myself looking for Those old boots beside my door That you gave me In a place so far away They were all worn in The sole was getting thin And full of holes But i loved them anyway Where are you now my darling Do the children know i’m gone Can you hear my singing Or did i only know you in a song But I once was a man I once was a father And i could cook you dinner like no other In our house in the country With a pocket full of dollars And you couldn’t have been a better mother I was older then Back when i was your man (interlude) I once was a man I once was a father And i could cook you dinner like no other In our house in the country With a pocket full of dollars And you couldn’t have been a better mother I was older then Back when i was your man

  • This Is The Kit: "Bashed Out" single
    Brassland
    03:41
    Kate Stables
    273,978

    This is the title track of This Is The Kit's album BASHED OUT produced by The National's Aaron Dessner. This Is The Kit is the much beloved musical project of Kate Stables, born in England and based in Paris, though the heart of their musical community remains in Bristol, UK. Bashed Out is her band’s third album, the result of an extended period collaboration with the record’s producer Aaron Dessner (Sharon Van Etten, Local Natives). Dessner--the co-founder of the Brassland label--is best known for his work in The National and, indeed, the backing band he gathered for Bashed Out combines the talents of This Is The Kit’s touring members (Rozi Plain, Jesse Vernon, Jamie Whitby-Coles), alongside a number of session players drawn from the Brooklyn music scene: Bryce Dessner, Thomas Bartlett (Doveman, The Gloaming), Matt Barrick (The Walkmen) and Ben Lanz (Beirut, The National) all made key instrumental contributions. As notable as the band, however, is front woman Kate Stables, whose voice hearkens back to the classic singer-songwriter era--her distinctive, cutting vocals up front in the mix. It’s a self-confidence gained since her previous album, 2011’s Wriggle Out the Restless, which made her band a minor institution in the United Kingdom, especially on the radio which has embraced the group. This Is The Kit has received across the board support from BBC 6 DJs Lauren Laverne, Radcliffe & Maconie, Marc Riley, Cerys Matthews, and Mary Anne Hobbs--receiving further play from BBC Radio 1’s Huw Stephens, Jen & Ally, and Phil Taggart. "Wonderful wonderful stuff," said DJ and Elbow frontman Guy Garvey, before arguing their last album should have made the Mercury Prize shortlist. On Bashed Out, the band continue their musical evolution into a synesthetic, shape-shifting entity—rooted in folk but encompassing elements of psychedelia, alternative rock, and electronic textures and sensibilities. The Line of Best Fit has called Kate's and TITK and "essential fixture of British folk music for the past 10 years…one of a handful of truly innovate songwriters working with the British folk template today."

    Recorded and mixed by Summer Salt Mastered by Charlie Ekhaus Baby girl when was it that you had decided You’d call it off and on  You were just having fun  With loving one last time 
 Still I’d catch you when the days through At my side passing by Wishin' someday you’d make up your mind 
 Alone alone again on valentine 
 Honey bee was it your buzzin’ I adored You’ve stung me twice before I kept coming back Kept coming back for more 
 Always reminded Of the days when You were my Cherry lime Finding our own worlds getting lost You and I (Long gone an) old friend of mine A blue moons on the rise No one I'd rather have Beside me tonight

    Preorder it: http://akrec.co/1y05i0M Available on Asthmatic Kitty Records March 31st (US) / March 30 (EU) More info: http://carrieandlowell.com In “Carrie and Lowell,” Sufjan Stevens is a child again or, more specifically, the child character in the family of man drama that often but not always centers on the story of love given, or love forsaken, but isn’t that the same thing to the poet? That the love Stevens sings about having left or given or been born to–thank you, Carrie–is a perceptible wound not only on the singer’s throat, but his sleeve: he wears love’s incomprehensibility, and the deep incomprehensibility of being a son, like a backing vocal on “Carrie and Lowell,” which is also filled with colors, hearts, trees, conclusions, and beginnings,

    Forgive me Dear, I cannot stay. He cut out my tongue, There is nothing to say. Love me? oh no, he threw me away, He laughed at my sins, in his arms I must Stay. He wrote, I'm broke. Please send for me. I'm broken too, And spoken for. Do not, tempt me. Her skin is fun, and I'm light as the Sun, So holy light shines, on the things, you have done. So I asked him, How he became this man? How that he learned, To hold fruit in his hands? And where is the lamb, that gave you your Name? He had to leave, though I begged HIM to Stay. Left you alone, when you needed the Light. Fell to your knees, and you wept for your Life! If he had of stayed, you might Understand. If he had of stayed, you never would've Taken my hand. He wrote, I'm alone. Please send for me. But I'm broken too, And spoken for. Do not, tempt me. And where is the lamb, that gave you your Name? He had to flee, though I begged him to Stay. Begged him to stay, in my cold wooden Grip. Begged him to stay, by the light of my Ship. Me fighting him, Fighting light, Fighting dawn. The waves came, And stole him, And took him toward. He wrote, I'm broke. Please send for me. But I'm broken too, And spoken for. Do not, tempt me. Forgive me, dear, I cannot stay. He cut out my tongue, there is nothing to Say Love me or not, he threw me away. He laughed at my sins, in his arms I must Stay. We write. That's alright. I miss his smell. And we speak, When spoken to. That suits us well. We write. And that's alright. But I miss his smell. And I speak, when spoken to, 'cause that suits me well. That suits me well.

    SOMEWHERE ELSE TONIGHT Written & Recorded: LITTLE SIR ECHO Produced: DUNCAN BROOKFIELD Mixed: DUNCAN BROOKFIELD Mastered: ANDY BALDWIN (Metropolis Studios London) LYRICS Make a path in the sky. Make the clouds a mile wide. If you wake I think you’ll find it’s all just sitting there. If you make a sight, just make a sound. If someone stares, just turn around. Take the ink that you have found, write something everywhere. Tonight and every other day, You lean outside your window pane, Close your eyes and hope that you take flight. To find the man you can’t replace, To see his eyes and touch his face, One more time before you dim the light. Your mind is drunk on everything, But your lips haven’t touched a thing. All the songs you used to sing are somewhere else tonight. Go outside and breathe the air. Go feel the rain fall through your hair. Cry like no ones theres, you know its not goodbye. Tonight and every other day, You lean outside your window pane, Close your eyes and hope that you take flight. To find the man you can’t replace, To see his eyes and touch his face, One more time before you dim the light. © Copyright LITTLE SIR ECHO 2016

I've been selfish in the past and didn't treat her properly because I was new to loving people like that and I didn't know what I was doing. I still feel bad about it, but it was a learning curve for me and I'm better now because of it. She still holds a special warm place in my heart and it just genuinely makes me happy now to see her happy."

In attempt to make you laugh I dropped my glass In attempt to slow it down I went too fast In a tempting tone of voice you said alright What a temporary choice we made that night You told me I don't know much but when it comes down I ain't sleeping on the ground I don't know what you thought you were saying But I ain't sticking around You said there ain't nothing you could do for me baby That I couldn't live without And I agree... Ivory... I didn't know how to say it to you...

Mixed by @ibr Art by http://twitter.com/adrelixart Produced by me & mxmtoon Lyrics: [Hook (mxmtoon)] The weather, oh oh the weather ruining my plans come on and get it together. your so mean, so mean. The weather, oh oh the weather waiting for the sun but it's not getting better it's so mean, so mean. [Verse (samsa)] i don’t miss the woolen jackets and the winter caps scratchy scarves, bulky boots, how every day my lips were chapped my dermatologist’s a firm apologist of winter weather i used every type of cream and lip balm and i’m still not better ‘side from skin, i don’t miss my itchy thermal sheepskin socks, i’d been waiting since december for the vernal equinox and thankfully it’s here, no more driving through the permafrost, i don’t need a coffee thermos, i can turn my furnace off, and note to self: i’ve been waiting months for all this snow to melt, and finally it’s gone and I can venture out of our room frolic in the foliage, kick back and watch the flowers bloom and breathe the open air as the heavens shine bright in powder blue there’s just one little problem though that I didn’t account for every fucking weather forecast has chance of downpour just one little issue, and yes, i’m a bit impatient but i haven’t waited all this time for more precipitation like weather gods, there’s just one little thought i’m tryna get across, i don’t expect things perfect but at least just give me better odds, like lately i’d been hoping that the tones of grey would fade and that sky would yawn cerulean, not rain on my parade and I know I’m being harsh on you but I’m not tryna scapegoat it’d just be nice to go outside without wearing a raincoat without holding umbrellas, the sidewalk nice and chalky with no puddles there to waddle through, wearing nothing waterproof, but maybe on on the bright side it’s a fair bet to think the sun is over on her way here but not here yet so let’s go get our hair wet, fuck it, let’s go dancing in bare feet on the rooftops super carefree with the patter of the dewdrops as our jukebox, and run for cover at a nearby coffee shop where we can dry our parka and our rubberized galoshes off and we’ll just take a rain check for that picnic in the grass and sip our lattes by the window as the drizzle hits the glass Full Lyrics..... https://pastebin.com/ZcDeTkxj
