Zak Tysoe Such a fun EP, I can't stop listening to it! 5 songs full of infectious melodies to brighten up the dreariest of days. I'm looking forward to more from these dudes. Favorite track: Idea/Intent.

Reid MacLeod EP of the year? Yes. Favorite track: Idea/Intent.

Agent K(ahunasan) These power-popping Kiwi's get the festivities started with the infectious hook laden "Whatever." Elizabeth's harmonic yet semi-detached vocals have an enchanting quality and the interspersed male backing vocals add melody and flow to these up-beat tracks of "grungy & garagey" quality indie-pop rave-ups.
"Lying..." flirts with pop song craft perfection.
When the Beths are up to release more material; I will definitely be back for round two. Favorite track: Lying in the Sun.
Rain Ride

Rain Ride Refreshingly direct, energetic, and fun. Warm Blood's nod to Johnny Hit and Run Pauline, whether intentional or not, works perfectly as an opening and baseline riff. Good stuff, y'all. Favorite track: Lying in the Sun.

Track Name: Whatever
blind you're blind
full of breaths and sobs and shakes and shakes
saying you will do whatever it takes
whatever yeah whatever
call declined
say you're round the corner fine okay
you think i will buy whatever you say
whatever yeah whatever

but now you're getting me started
you're pulling the yarn and
you're pulling it harder and i think i'm gonna
you're getting me started you're pulling the yarn and
you're breaking my heart
you're making me want to

crash the car we'll hit the water
brush the rock and wait for the maker
and if he doesn't show
heaven knows heaven knows
i will make you feel so blue

you arrive
towing silence on a lively eve
eyes are crying for another reprieve
another yeah whatever
we're blood and water but my back is blown
you're shoulders slumped are saying
you should have known i'd let you down again
whatever yeah whatever

but now you're getting me started
you're pulling the yarn and
you're pulling it harder and i think i'm gonna
you're getting me started you're pulling the yarn and
you're breaking my heart
you're making me want to

crash the car we'll hit the water
brush the rock and wait for the maker
and if he doesn't show
heaven knows heaven knows
i will make you feel so

baby you're breaking my heart
baby you're breaking my heart
why do you make it so hard
you're breaking my heart
Track Name: Warm Blood
nothing makes me feel like this
nothing but you
my head is hanging from the roof
i'm floating all about the room
because of you

i wanna bask in the rays of the way i feel right now
warming up my blood
you are a raincoat you are a zeppelin flight
you are a bonfire burning a three dog night
you are an isle of calm on a stormy sea
you really get me

i wanna be here when you call
pick up the phone and i would fall in love with you

so come on let's go
bust out of this shit show
come on
come on
let's go
Track Name: Idea/Intent
sometimes it's dark in my head
sometimes i give up the light for the monsters under my bed
and they feast on my thoughts
they're well fed
communication is hell
i get tired of checking the mail
tired of checking myself
you bet i'll be in the ring when you ring the bell

but if i let it out
vibrations in the throat can convey more than just sound
it's the idea that'll cut you up and cut you down
but if i let it out it's not just you versus the verbs and the nouns
it's the intent that'll fuck you up now
it'll fuck you up again and again

sometimes the silence is fun
sometimes the words taste sweeter on the tip of my tongue
they beat the bitter of war where nobody won
where we're just casualties
in this casual fight given up so casually
sometimes there isn't the time or the energy
Track Name: Rush Hour 3
i know a place where we can go yeah
night and day
just around the corner
cheap beer rice wine and soju
don’t tell me you don’t wanna

roll over once roll over twice
roll off the couch baby and into my life

i know a place where we can go yeah
just around the corner
won’t you come along with me
i wanna take you to my home yeah maybe watch a movie
i just downloaded rush hour 3

i know that love can be so frightening
it doesn’t have to be
you need a full time sidekick and I’ll do it for free

roll over once roll over twice
roll off the couch boy you’re the apple of my eye
Track Name: Lying in the Sun
i swear the stars are getting further and further apart
the horizon gets closer and closer to where we are
and I’m drawing in the deepest breath
the water’s way over my head
I’m never coming up for air again

these autumn eves are elastic
i’m padding home in my bare feet
and there’s sand between my bed sheets
so when I sleep it feels like I’m lying on the beach
summer is over and the water’s getting colder
when the knots you tied in my shoulders come undone
it feels like I’m lying in the sun

all our old friends seem so far away from us now
you tell me so definite everything’s gonna work out but

but from inside this hydrosphere
the surface seems so insincere
I’m never coming up for air
I’m never coming up again
