Michael Reilly Moody and thoughtful dream pop with fuzzy atmospherics and intelligent melodies. I like the sense of quiet mystery in these songs and importantly, they never overstay their welcome. Favorite track: Sky is Falling.

Bobbi Wilson has good song structure and a sense for melody with a decent pop hook.
Hazy multi-tracked vocals lurk in the backgrounds giving a somewhat "ghostly" atmosphere to tracks.
This is a good effort for a "bedroom pop" artist.
Thanks to Art Fin & Jabod for the BC feed. Favorite track: Runaway.

Track Name: Kiss the Veil
Kiss the veil, it's floating over you head
I can see your eyes
Track Name: Shadow Living
all across the way, all I need is a night to face the day
caught between trains, around inside
symbols in the air, existence so rare

a tree I seek your shelter but nature it carries you away
a stormy tide, the one you waited for, no more shadow living
no more shadow living for love

bright lights, white tables, all over, can't fight it no more
the tunnel, keep still, faint flowers, always out on time

the sun may change, the earth rotates, and I crawl along,
but now in an open field, a shadow just don't belong
and I just wanted to belong

I try to grab on to you my hands they go right through you
love is a shade of dark blue no more shadow living
no more shadow living for love
Track Name: Sky is Falling
I look up, and I notice that the sky is falling
the sky is falling
I watch the clouds drop down into the ground

I listen and I hear that it’s my name you’re calling
my name you’re calling
but all around you’re nowhere to be found

All along bathed in light,
always goes wrong at night,
I tried to stay inside
but all I did was want to kill it

I’ll jump into the sea,
wash all the bad from me,
life is a rock so naked,
but the waves — a symphony

I look up, and I notice that the sky is falling
the sky is falling
I watch the clouds drop down into the ground

I listen and I hear that it’s my name you’re calling
my name you’re calling
but all around you’re nowhere to be found

I try to taste the sky,
look up with crystal eyes,
it wrapped me like a blanket,
no need to feel sad anymore

Just find me in the sea,
it washed the bad from me,
I am a rock so naked
but the waves they sang to me
Track Name: Siphon
go on and siphon, I'm in the thick of it
it's only one cold night,
life doesn't flatter me
Track Name: Fever
fever
do not wander, sleep
I can’t find,
unable

slipping,
swimming in the lake,
I can’t hold the silence

life is hard as it is,
I’ll follow to the deep end
you can’t pay for the light,
anyway
Track Name: Heart Glow
find me, another day
another way, not here

colors, inside a body
pull it together, tastes good

all the hearts are glowing,
keep them safe in a box
so they don't wander off

all alone and walking
down a dark street at night,
all around I'm seeing stars
Track Name: Above and Below
I'm thinking with the way I feel, I long to know, I long to heal
I'm rolling in the endless night, I could wash away
not put up a fight

cause there's no one above and there's no one
below, I wash my hair, and I wash my clothes
and what's the point, yeah nobody knows
cause there's no one above and there's no one below

wish I could think all day and fade into a warm place
I don't want a typical life but the way it's set up, it makes me cry

cause there's no one above and there's no one below
I wash my hair and I wash my clothes
and what's the point, yeah nobody knows, cause there's
no one above, and there's no one below
