Dr. Beaf This album reeks of warm summer evenings. Reminds me of Van She in the sound and structure with fine synth passages/arpeggios and the limit in vocal phrase pitch ranges that adds to the pleasant mood of the album. Favorite track: Whirlwind.

Pete Kowalsky Modern take on 80's pop -- dreampop/shoegaze/synthpop -- whatever you call it, it's catchy, fresh, upbeat, and sugary sweet. I don't care, I love it. :) Fans of Ulrich Schnauss, Darshan Ambient, etc. will dig this!
Brad Burris

Brad Burris This album is a nod to the retro days of yore, yet manages to offer a bright new sense of focus in its melodies. Retrowave, dreamwave, indiewave, whatever you want to call it, its refreshing. Favorite track: Bermuda.

Riot Bloom 04:52
When you called Your words stood tall Talk of what will be Is it you and me? What you do is an excuse You can't ignore the truth Out in this town Night's bright when you look Out in this city Can't stop, you feel so good Wade through the talk But not away Can't see her walk You know the way Won't change what She remembers Get up it's Time to go
2.
Vespa's just big enough for two Cottage off the dirt track We got on the plane We never looked back Statues crumble above us Down below we're alive Got to get up and find our way We're locals now, they say It's been a while since We cared about anything
3.
Don't want to be a fool You're the one who said it Leaving their glasses half full You're the one who said it No one moves but us No one moves Just the way we know Just the world without us And the way her dress moves Never mind what i could lose She'll do it to you On Saturday On Saturday
4.
Whirlwind 04:07
Came down early Fizzy notion of reality Wake up with raw trust Shake off the insides' rust Waiting to love again You won't tell When all is well Getting better We grow together Wont see me Holding apathy Getting better We grow together Streets lit up 'round your shoes Look away and lose Keeping you close to heart Her science is a start I'm holding colors again
5.
So far out you see Colors melt and bleed Run in circles and threes Make perfect symmetry You come back around You always see in sound But you can't fool me 'Cause what you see I see Eyes get wide Tongue untied Blink for just a minute To keep your balance We feel all around We keep what surrounds We're talking with words You choose in passion play We intersect and dive All just to feel alive
6.
Bermuda 04:39
There's still enough time To catch the last daylight Before the sand's under night Soon we'll miss this place Down with me girl Let's drink tonight in this world The weather's changed The water's cold You'll go back To what you know You lose yourself with us In hazey waves It's been too long since then
7.
Two Eyes 04:15
Broken ties Are imprecisely fine Tales of the past Lost in illusion and time In crowded rooms In crowded times alive I once was known I once became my own Two eyes upon the bay Two eyes upon the bay Upon you wanna go away Upon you wanna go In better ways I took apart these lies Stood on the ground And turned it all around It's give and take They took it all away But then it's you It's you they brought me to
8.
You'll be there When you need me When you're finished With what you see Where does it go to? Gone tomorrow And here last week I don't ask I don't speak You make us think I don't ask I don't speak You make us weak Gone like communication Can't take back What's understood
9.
You can't think It's alright You'll learn it You can decide Path is lit Within you Left and right It's all the truth Black and white It's never new Unfinished Ever lost It hurts, you bleed Alright in three No limit Be yourself Don't put it On the shelf
10.
Can't see the sky Obstructed consciousness When they come for me Don't say they came for you I'll leave my soul In your living room No one needed to see it No one needed to hear it I didn't tell you I'm alone without you I couldn't get to sleep I can't recall If we talked at all When the clock melts You lay upon your bed Feel the time on your wall You take it and you fall
