wonderdog Double-plus good!!
Great vocals: clear & comfortable (bit like Fink); and instrumentation that is spacious (in the way that Blue Nile and Talk Talk are).

The Old Sound the day i ran away from home no one was looking for me through field and sky and flood i roamed singing softly i found a little world for me i found a little pleasure for me the sky was lit by candle ink flickering softly the hills, they rolled like slumberbeast and you were dreaming of me i dreamt of eating a little pleasure for me i dreamt of dreaming your lips glistening no one comes down to the old town and no one ever leaves i was always home by sundown singing in my sleep this is what comes when you run round singing carelessly watch where your heart puts roots down you'll never get home before the sky goes dark that's what you whispered to me but i know somewhere we can lay our heads flickering softly i remember feeling the fire close to me i woke and you were singing to me no one comes down to my old town i will not be free no one goes home by sundown i will not be free no one sings songs with the old sound unless they walk with me sing on, sing soft, sing me

Where the Night Goes I’m tired of thinking of something to say When there’s something we’re not talking about You run a million miles away But you don't go very far You go where the night goes You go where the night goes Nobody sees how the lights go on around you when you’re down and while we’re waiting for the night your eyes go wide at the sound While we’re blinded by the light I can tell just what you’re thinking the graveyard is full of people who would love to go out tonight So we go where the night goes We go where the night goes And I know this is your line But you're not here to sing it I think my eyes are turning white I will never learn to stop I've nothing left but time Nothing left but time And that's what gets you

OKAY 04:41
OKAY Down among the dead men down among the dead The town is burning up but we will meet again Down among the rushes I will float away Down among the dead men I will be okay Down among the dead men I will be okay I know where I’m going I will be okay When the widow’s singing I will be okay when the bells are ringing I will be okay When the night is talking I will slip away See the houses walking I will be okay I can see the silence of the night above I can see the light inside your eyes my love I can see the pattern that your mother wove Are you okay?

The Night Is An Ocean oh little darling please let it be i can be quiet if you want to sleep i will say nothing, nothing at all oh little darling please let it be i won’t speak of the things you dream i will say nothing, nothing at all summer arrived while you were asleep the days are sweet and sun-fading i want for nothing, nothing at all the night is a blanket seamed with teeth i don’t know why it seems so sweet it might be nothing, nothing autumn arrived while i was asleep The leaves are collecting in our street I can do nothing, nothing I can do nothing, nothing and just when i find the words to speak the night turns cold and i turn weak so i say nothing so i say nothing and just when you start to fall asleep you wake me up and kiss my cheek and i need nothing and i need nothing nothing, but that the night is an ocean the stars are its fleet they sail to the sun and reel in defeat they fade to nothing, nothing oh, little darling, stubborn and sweet can’t figure out what all of this means i would say nothing, nothing i would say nothing, nothing at all.

Softy 04:23
Softy There's an art to falling apart like this my love There's an art to smouldering bliss like this my love Don't let it get away from you When you say my name, do the words roll around in your mouth? When you break my heart do the pieces roll round in your mouth? There's an art to being a part of this my love Just tell me what you want me to feel Though I say your name your voice rolls around in my heart Though it beats for me I think I could tear it apart It keeps me awake my love

Wisp 05:10
Wisp let me sleep i am tired of my grief and i would like you to love me, to love me, to love me this is the night when these woods sigh come with me there are people who cannot speak without smiling they would take me from your hand or they would try, they would try this is the murmur of the land this is the sound of love's marching band and how they hold you like a gun and how i sing you like a song i heard when i was young and buried for a night like this
7.
Fields 04:09
Fields autumn took our home tamed it made it cold when it learnt to sing so we hit the road doing what we're told thought i heard you sing of love and other things falling in between falling in between i thought i heard you say That life is far away and everything had changed everything has changed winter sent us home taught us to be cold taught us how to sing children don't grow old don't notice the cold thought i heard you sing a life spent tumbling in and out of sleep in and out of sleep and love's not what they say it blooms from day to day and everything is changed everything is changed

Within 05:02
Within Set out to find her shoes and take care of me She wears the same old blues but now happily On Sundays she wakes me up to make sure it's me On Sundays I write the best songs backwards to keep her with me Some nights we stay awake and make coffee stains We paper up the walls and pencil in our names On Sundays she wakes me up to make sure it's me On Sundays I write the best songs backwards to keep her with me

Penny Sweets 04:24
Pennysweets handfuls of these say it doesn’t matter a night of bad dreams and you never slept better tumble to me an ocean overflowing bedfuls of thee a heart slowly growing you and me nightfuls of thee a dawn in night’s clothing treads so softly that smile was made for knowing words fall from thee your eyes are overflowing and though i am free i know i’m never going to leave
