Michele M. Il primo ascolto di questo album fatto durante le pulizie domestiche (a titolo di cronaca: non esattamente l'attività più eccitante nella quale mi cimento) ha trasformato il mio padiglione auricolare e i vari annessi e connessi in una zona erogena supplementare. Psichedelia folk? Folk psichedelico? Machissenefrega: davanti a quello che ste due bellissime voci, che ste chitarre intense (con l'aiuto occasionale di altri ammenicoli sonori) riescono a regalarci, le definizioni diventano secondarie. Che goduria...e sospetto che sia uno di quei dischi che lievitano col tempo. P.S: la traccia preferita è puramente indicativa, visto che le canzoni sono tutte splendide Favorite track: Remember the future.

You, cloud 05:08
So glad you sum taste I’m in you you, cloud I delay your white flow dwell in the rain First I was scared when you ate me you, cloud All the towns I saw below They seemed so vain So glad to drift all my drops in you, cloud decompose in few pearls a necklace default No one knows the way you are changing but always yourself Not a word to call you out but a whole storming poem I glass the sun so it can’t burn you, cloud long life to your teardrops they feed the dust

Not a close verb Not a known word Not the care of a gesture Not a shadow for raw eyes Not a shield for wide open ribs Not a silence for exhausted lips Not a sun for some pale vertebrae Neither a moon for a day which died too soon

Three steps ahead you need to take them two steps around her maybe you'll find her it's a long way to get you there you just miss it it's a long way to get you there you maybe will tell you the truth three steps ahead in my head two steps around her maybe you'll find her maybe it's the wrong time maybe it's the right you will never know it for sure unless you’ve a magic by sight it's a long way to get you there you just miss it it's a long way to get you there you maybe will tell you the truth it's a long way to get you there you just miss it it's a long way to play your game you just have me to take you’re weak and cheap it’s a wasting note just take me to

Come back time you look grey tease me as I lay unseen I’m in love Leave me through her bones, I pray I’ll be lost with all I have I’ve been what I saw blooming seeds on top of the sea now reach my lost head branching out as a millionaire tree curve a line draw her eyes so she sees
5.
You wake up and you're so glad I wake up and I'm so sad to wake up to wake up You grow up and you're so glad I grow up and I'm so sad to grow up to grow up strings ride along the firefog to cook well a swinging raw doll she sings quarters of her woolthoughts to fulfill the empty bottle she is the battle of the happy claustorms leave her free to build a three-doll with two pieces of a creepcold she is the battle of the happy claustorms leave her free to build a three-doll it will warm your santa's nights let it start, make it bright
6.
Don't try to remember the future nor your paleness in its distant colors don't listen to its lament today 'cause its cold bare melancholy is still so far to come Don't try to remember the future nor your paleness in its distant colors don’t try to listen to its lament today 'cause its cold bare melancholy is still so far to come Don’t try, don’t try don’t try to remember

I’m not a place you’ve come into this way off your nation and so distressed I’m not a place you come to release your poetry and your scent your mainspring Down in my streets we played planting seeds the trees in my gardens no roots and no feet from windows the oceans repeat my deceit two eyes as an epic tale so wide and so deep You took the mansion 5 floors indeed 3 turns of the keys 32 teeth to wash to be clean and then sleep I’m not a place you just came along through my background and straight to the core left the walls like a broken trinket Days like rainbows to melt my complaint they show me their back now so grey in the ashtray from windows the oceans repeat my deceit two eyes as an epic tale so wide and so deep Down in my streets we played planting seeds the trees in my gardens no roots and no feet from windows the oceans repeat my deceit two eyes as an epic tale so wide and so deep

Fall 03:36
Fall, your blunder is your clue I know Fall, the right way to call your name your wounds don’t lie that is just the same for me
9.
Known 01:14
Thousands the years waiting for your hands Known My back away from pebbles and caves So strong the light I bare over mine Known
