Mike D. super cute and fun. love all the bands that have a fuzzy grind to guitars and sugary vox. duel male/fem vox is appealing too. like lemuria. Favorite track: Lady MacBeth & Miss Havisham.

hilltop early leader for my album of the year. Duet vocals really work well and aggressive chops mean ear candy for you. Favorite track: Teasin'.

Track Name: Lady MacBeth & Miss Havisham
I took the long way down
I went the wrong way round
Stood contemplating my contingency
I broke that thing in two
Lost what I meant to do
Stuck shaking hands with electricity
By the time you found me I had nearly fallen through the hole in my head
I was choking you were joking I was laughing I was breathing instead
Only life can bring you back from the dead

I wandered down the halls
Like a confused pinball
Lady Macbeth meets Mrs. Havisham
The kid I used to be
Wrote in a diary
Lulled off to sleep with just a ceiling fan
If you catch me rollin round under the moonlight cracking my head
I am never so untethered I don’t feel you tugging back on my thread
So just tell me baby go back to bed

I broke that thing in two
Lost what I meant to do
And it all spun perpetually
But we played through the set and I pressed the last fret
And we promptly ran into the sea

I forgot how to sleep
I drank too much caffeine
When I lay there it felt like the end
With your hand on my head
You said go back to bed
Oh these things keep me hangin by a golden thread
Track Name: Whoa Baby
I know it won’t be the same
I know and I feel so strange
I know that we asked for change
When we already loved what we had

The sound so loud so clear
The sound of relief and fear
It all poured into our ears
And we laughed cuz it scared us so bad

Too soon when if fact we’re late
How come it still feels that way
I still wanna run away
When I’d rather be running towards you

And if that dream never comes again
I’ll still find myself at day's end
Your arm underneath my head
And I’ll still wanna call you baby
Track Name: Better
I have laid with them, I’ve felt their skin
It was nothing like it was with him
Cryin on the subway home
The music coming through my headphones
Sounded better than it’d ever been

Well I was flying when I fell into the water
And the weeds grew over my spine
I was lying at the bottom of the ocean
When I felt a tug on my line
And who can say what chased the pain away
Was it shots and pills or years and days
Or did how he made me feel make me ok
Track Name: Yeah
If I could have it all my way
You'd stay home on a rainy day
I'd ask you is everything ok

If I had known, if I had found
A way my mouth could make the sound
I'd ask you would you please stick around
And you would say yeah

If I could solve great mysteries
I'd wanna know if you could see
Me dancing in a dress made just for me

If things had gone the way the we planned
We'd see them ask the crowd to stand
You'd tell me let's go see your man
And I would say yeah
Track Name: Neverwhere
Wish I could make myself believe
It’d make it easier to breathe
Wish I could see with my eyes closed
A place where all good gone things go

Have you stood to the north and prayed
For pretty things that never came
Have you stood facing east and waved
At taillights way too far away
