Hudson Jefferies My absolute AotY in 2015. This thing did not come off of repeat for a solid two months after its discovery. These guys blend so many things I love together. There's twinkly, complex musicianship; there's personal, affecting and passionate lyrics, and best of all, it feels like these guys really have fun playing together. Music that makes me wish I was in a band like this, or that I could even play an instrument. Music that, as always, I'm truly thankful for making me feel truly emotional. Favorite track: Automobile Wink.

about

Colours take shape in the foreground
Echo forms of your former self
Deep in elation of all
You don't know
Shall we choose to change in these moments?

The stars blink back
Smell life on this night

Get lost in the ocean
Above our heads

Track Name: Somewhere Else
Somewhere else
I'm somewhere else
With you
Take me as I am
I'm all edges
So I can open you up
Or cut right through you
Open up
Track Name: Ode to Spot
Pause for effect
Oh those memories you reject
Those growing pains that dull refrain
Will have you in stiches when your eyes
Expose your disposition
For what you really are
I thought
You'd be
Worth it
To me
Well does it matter
Your reflection
Will the mirror smile back at you
Like I do
Nine lives short of today
When you're gone
Oh I'm feeling more
I'm feeling more than I want to
Than I want to
I thought
You'd be
Worth it
To me
Track Name: Automobile Wink
Tires tread
Up a broken street
White all around
Half a foot deep
Sevens and nines
Make up the sound
Animal faces
Primally bound
The leaves turn over and my ambition is dry
The colors change into faces closer to mine
The leaves turn over and my ambition is dry
The colors change into faces closer
Six by two
The bridges we crossed
The pictures we painted
Burned by exhaust
Primaveral wind
Reddens a face
Rotten through winter
Only now in place
The leaves turn over and my ambition is dry
The colors change into faces closer to mine
The leaves turn over and my ambition is dry
The colors change into faces closer
Track Name: Darling, it's the Weekend! (Live a Little)
I've been playing with you
I've enjoyed the rush
We're just paper cutouts
In and out of love
You make me feel brighter
Hiding in your warmth
Here in my arms
There in the present
Just within reach
Just out of balance
Somehow, someway
Everything falls into place
Wandering wondering
We'll all pass away some day
Cause Darling it's the weekend
Darling it's the weekend
Track Name: So, Shall We?
I'm getting out
(uh oh)
(no)
I started tracing all my steps
Back to when we met
Where do I begin
When do we expend
How could I forget
The air is thick with your perfume
The ice so thin under our shoes
I thought I'd lose all that I knew
Before I left this place confused
(no)
I can't take it back
Everything I said
Everything I did
Just consequence in the end
(uh oh)
I can't take it back (uh oh)
Everything I said (uh oh)
Everything I did
Just consequence
Lost is a concept I understand (all to well)
Inside this shell I'm alone
On an island of love and loss I've grown
On the upside I've never shown
Buried and marked in stone
(no)
I can't take it back
Everything I said
Everything I did
Just consequence in the end
(uh oh)
I can't take it back (uh oh)
Everything I said (uh oh)
Everything I did
Just consequence
So Shall We move
Shall we change
Shall we choose
To take shape
So Shall we?
Track Name: The Spirit Life is the Best, Man!
I'm walking through you
Literal function
I'm walking through you
Literal function don't mean a thing
And I fade into the foreground
But I'll just keep
Running back to you again
You'll just keep
Staring a hole right through me
I've just been
So transparent lately
You're just another plastic dream
To me
I'm ethereal
You're imagining things
I live in your head
You might be insane
I'm walking through you
Literal function
I'm ethereal
Fading blue
And I fade into the foreground
I never rest
But I'll just keep
Running back to you again
You'll just keep
Staring a hole right through me
I've just been
So transparent lately
You're just another plastic dream
To me
I'm ethereal
Devisible by your ego
Track Name: There's Something Beautiful I'm Unaware Of
Wait
Did you stop and notice
Between mere days
The grass turned a shade
Clouds circle around us
Don't you feel alone
In the best way
Life
In this waking dream
So delicate it seems
Feeling lost in composure
And tossed in the breeze
Don't you feel alone
In the best way
