Michael Keerdo-Dawson A more atmospheric and rocky outing, this album isn't as consistent in style as "Drip" (the ambient centric second half is a little incongruous) but it makes up for this with some more distinctive tracks. Favorite track: Write to Me.

Samantha Ritter Mmm, I could listen to this all day I think. Favorite track: Ride.

Sarah Oksiuta "Lily" is like a flashback of the best kind. And dammit ... I am just so fricking impressed by the talent of one person doing this all by himself. Alec Grefe is my hero and I hope to meet him some day. Favorite track: Lily.

Track Name: Lily
Thought that I would go over to Tori's house
see my friends, watch TV and hang around
try to keep my mind from thinking about my ex girlfriend tonight

Heard she's into heavy drugs
what a shame. she's the girl I used to love
I just need some time. another couple months and I'll be fine
Track Name: Write to Me
write to me
write to me oh wont you write?

all the moments I've lost
waiting by the mailbox
holding on to a dream
that someday you'll write me

write to me
write to me oh wont you write?
Track Name: Ride
wherever I go she ride's along
passenger side singing her songs
i don't like it
the notes are wrong
but she says the words and I sing along

whatever I do I hear her name
taking a picture she's in the frame
it's kind of a problem but I guess it's okay
she takes my hand and it all goes away

oh, sweet marie
wherever i go she rides with
oh, sweet marie
taking me higher than ecstasy

night after night forever the same
my time is spent playing her games
why do i love her? she cheats all the time
but when she says my name she controls my mind
Track Name: Together
you and I
you and I are good
we behave like a couple should

you and I
you and I are good
we will stay like they never could
together forever

riding through
council grounds again
driving fast cuz' Lily loves the wind
together forever

Track Name: Wings
do we grow wings above when we die?
i want that to be true so i can fly
you always disappear inside your books
that scar above your nose is turning looks
Track Name: Headache
oh headache
grows a little stronger with every single day
oh headache
digs a little deeper whenever she's away
oh headache
hurts a little more than it did yesterday
oh headache
from a memory of a girl that I can't seem to replace
