trapdoorsman Ava Luna is one of the best bands ever to do it and that's a STONE COLD FACT. this would be Album of the Year any year it came out. if it were released in 2170 it'd still be blowing people's minds Favorite track: Plain Speech.

Rhino creative and stylistic stuff! the 70's funk-ish style is really nice. i love the embarrassing, dissident, and "out-there" style. really fun listen. Favorite track: Electric Balloon.

Kabir Kumar Slashy post-punk meets flashy R&B in a lo-fi setting; great harmonies abound! Favorite track: Daydream.

Daydream 02:33
Caught up Crack crak! Was it an affliction when I looked at you? Was it an affection when I looked at you? Or was it just a daydream? Was it a reaction when I looked at you? What an education! when I looked at you Was it all a daydream? I've never been so put off in all my life...

Everybody says we're talkin About the new sweet thing Everybody says we're talkin About the new sweet thing We're hippin on things and don't deny We're hippin on things and don't deny it The new sweet thing We're flippin our limbs and we're ten feet high, HI-YA We're flippin our limbs and we're ten feet higher, HI-YA The most sweet thing

Crown 04:37
Past the breakout point we wave Lined up toward the wind, antique I smirk, I speak You are a little child, you're just a little child But I need a man I don't boast of my collection, no I don't boast And I see the humor in retreat, Yea I see the humor in retreat But you are a little child, you're just a little child, And I need a man You're good and you're kind, But I need a man

Aquarium 02:19
Please, please, please Don't you hurt my baby, please I will sit beside you At the bottom of the lake

Plain Speech 04:30
Plain speech at the top of the red house Plain speech, lit shoes in the courtyard Plain speech, pusher on a platform Plain speech The voice of the vendor at the bike shop "Throw the tire on the dish" You, you helped me onto the fixie And you, you held your arms to the sides And just for a moment, just for a moment I stopped the aching muscle from to carry me away But not with this body, not with this body I got a date in Austin with a friend from the bay Well it's in my nature to sit and watch the folding bridge Yea it's in my nature to reach my arms across the ridge Now I know, now I know And after I saw you by the bike shop You touched your thumb to my cheek And I carried, yea I carried back to the railing And you, you pedaled off to the east And just for a moment, just for a moment I stopped the aching muscle from to carry me away But not with this body, not with this body I know that I am leaving but just hold me for a moment

PRPL 03:47
Don't break the pace, I'm ducking out A flick a gem back in the house But so far and farther I don't know how And so far I need it somehow If I'm at the point of waking up Only for the sake of you A truce, in play A breath of space, I'm ducking out Two colors and they're bleeding down But so far and farther I don't know how

Hold U 04:06
A yellow shape in the living room that you balance out You set aside the ingredients as I'm coming to And I slip into states as your hands slip beneath the dirty plates I could spend tomorrow in two rows outside the city And I could stack my boxes in apartments with your drawings on the wall I could sit in reverie But what I should do is hold you by the bottom of the hill So hold me for a moment, bb I was uptown in the coffee shop when I finally decided You were dusting off the tablecloth in your parents' house We're the same, we're the same But I'm tired of trying to explain it So what I should do is hold you by the bottom of the hill So hold me for a moment, bb

Judy 04:13
Could have used your advice in your absence You were lit from below, you were vacant Judy, I don't have the stomach for you, Judy Move the chair from the room as you cleaned up Did I hide by the sink as you cleaned up Judy, I don't have the stomach for you Did I spread my fingers for you? Or was it just my hazy memory? Judy, Judy, my life is but a melody Judy, you're a fallen house, and I don't want to pick you back up Maybe I don't have the stomach for you...

Genesee 03:33
Little wooded haven, safety Rain guard lady, get up Run around I heard you from the shady And I know that it's nothing, but I can't anticipate it A swallow in the radi, but I know that it's nothing Run around

Ab Ovo 04:09
I can't anticipate if I can only see the back I can't participate if I can only see the back Put away, put away, put away... I already put it away
