Charlie Mayer Just saw these guys/gals live, and they put on a really fun show with lots of energy. This album captures some of that energy, and the vocals and sound have been hashed out perfectly. Wonderful album! Favorite track: Everyone But You.

Agent K Worth Every Penny it cost to add this to the collection.
Honey coated warm female vocals by Rachel Browne drip all over these dream-pop melodies.
Her voice has a familiar sounding quality and resonance in tone.
Shoegazer guitars propel these songs forward and make this an immediate, infectious and memorable collection of songs.
Wonderful! Favorite track: Tomorrow Is Yesterday.
Jabod

Jabod One of the best dream pop bands around. A pretty perfect combination of soft female vocals and harder-edged shoegaze guitar that makes them quite representative of the genre (which I love).
Raymond Hodgson

Raymond Hodgson Still their best album. Great mix of introspective indy rock and college alt-rock tracks. Favorite track: Netsuke.

think you sped off but can't be sure your sound is mixed with all the rest in the field this time there was no one else in the field this time there was no one else, there was no one the space where you sat, nervous electricity the shape that you left, i can't trace it yet,  it seeps back into the air and all around the sun went low and late,  and up there are constellations we can't see in the pathways of old dreams i think i met you there,  on a shoreline, in the reeds, in the air dim forgotten stuck in song it followed me all along nothing is complete nothing is complete nothing is complete nothing is complete nothing there's a place you return to in a dream there's a place where you believe anything

Sleep  I know you won't let me be got a smile as a guarantee I know you won't let me sleep Far I know you've come too far I know you are what you are I know you are what you are it gets too close  to what you already know  Wait are we ever going to meet i feel you creeping out my feet shadow on the balance beam Stay and take it all away  cause nothing means that much to me but what I'd give to feel so free read "why'd you go and waste it?" written on the wall in a crowded basement everything's going down this week it's history  got a photo and pocket litany back in time you're all so free back in time you aren't with me everything goes around everything's happening now i know you won't let me down i know what you want me to

Two Ships 04:18
Oh it's so fun to be on watch gonna storm the castle gonna see you march I've got a hundred rooms just pick one, just pick one and get to sleep dream into me All I want is to see you hungry All I want is to see you starving All I want is your weight next to me All I want  Make the house your home deep in some catacombs come on and join the bones you're in the city, you're not really alone you're in the city, you're not really alone come on and join the bones All I want is to see you hungry All I want is to see you starving All I want is your weight next to me All I want is you starving I don't go out much at all I stay in my bed I talk to you nightly  alone in my head

Everyone but you sits in the room talks about school fights through the gloom whistling, drumming knees in the candle burnt down where your face sat one time in April Everyone but you a book torn in two tequila drips fingers kiss lips you don't miss I stare into the mirror and face my own fist everyone but you counted stars that night but not me, I slept dreamt you took another flight Everyone but you a book torn in two

Asteroid 02:39
Haunted house inside my chest you're better than, than all the rest got your eyes set on stormy seas lost your mind and your way back to me it's a shame, it's a shame you and i were just the same it's a shame, it's a shame you wake up so you can just walk away you walk away the asteroid was just a satellite your hands in scorpio moonlight got your eyes set on other shes you never tried, you've got no claim to me it's a shame, it's a shame you and i were just the same it's a shame, it's a shame you wake up so you can just walk away you walk away you walk away

Reina 02:56
Read your palm the only way i know with fingertips, with my eyes closed they're rivers running into lakes moon rocks on the orbit's face i had patience i buried my face in quiet corners i stood in place in a still life of some lost scene in the ghost side of a sunbeam what don't i already know? i don't go anywhere you go your eyes, awake, still in a dream they don't tell me anything

Netsuke 03:17
See now, that wasn't so bad it's always worse when you think about it hold it in on the ride home set your watch, eyes on the moon someday when all the things you used to dream  are lived out or buried underground you won't remember how the fear felt only what you didn't do   tell them what you need  you can't please everybody all the time  hold still for the day go to school and watch the hours tick away someday when all the things you used to dream  are lived out or buried underground and you remember the weight of the imaginary ties guess they were right dreaming in the bathtub of what came before there's always something, something more dreaming in the bathtub of what things are in store one step to close the window and two steps out the door

Horizon City 03:13
hey love, meet me tomorrow three miles from mexico and still so far to go the lights behind us start to wane hey love, take me to the water that place where no one else will bother hey love, take my name return it to my father hey love, write this down hey love, hear that sound hey love, meet me tomorrow  and now it's gone again each night i'll tell you when i heard the footsteps climb away away away
9.
Television flicker for every thought i have i never dreamt i'd feel so dull throwing stones out at the sea in my dreams and memories oh no, here we go i used to have a lot friends she said from the underneath the bed i hope this summer never ends wind it up and start again when we were younger we imagined we were part of something i don't want any lovers  can i move out gracefully away or will i have to keep the stain i used to have a lot friends she said from the underneath the bed i hope this summer never ends wind it up and start again bright lights make you hollow inside

Happy 03:06
Close call, caught that train tonight once and for all, we're fine just you sit tight I'm happy Out in the ether, come up to meet her we'll say it's a joke but you'll never know and that's what you get for loving your regret you give me nothing you give me nothing it's warm out now, the stakes have changed But if you let me I'll still feel the same oh, you give me nothing I'm happy
11.
Kids 01:57
Think it over, you got nowhere else to sleep Lay yourself down, don't worry about me in the morning when light pushes in Make it over, it's been such a long long time Left the pine trees just to see if I could find something more than the shapes we made in the earth on those days every summer, I wish I could still relate But we were all just kids  and kids exaggerate kids exaggerate
12.
All the other eyes staring at the rock slide pull me out and get some sleep tonight on the mountain top there is still some air left watch the lights rising from the other side I can't write but i know you'll get the words in long nights like this, it's in the firs it's stars that don't light, it's not like what you heard flood it out and comb the banks for her where did you go that it's been so long? so long where did you go that it's been so far,  far gone? water in the valley
