vamphaery Oddly enough, discovered this via a fan-made YouTube video featuring Maude Garrett and Sam Bashor from the now dead Sourcefed.

Great musical journey to be taken on. Lifts my spirits when I'm down. Favorite track: Northern Lights.

about

Aire Blvd is an interesting tale - all of these songs center around this particular street in a fictional, unnamed town, where not much generally goes right.

Style-wise, this one is for listening, like Découverte and Nostalgiarithm, not so much for dancing, at least to me.

Enough rambling.. as always, I sincerely hope you enjoy the album, and thank you for listening!

Until next time--

cheers,
Jonathan

Track Name: October Rust
the 31st has crept up again
with it's visiting orange hue

when every time I steal a glance
at those pages
they strike me with you

and now you're feeding faster
how the feelings move on

now you're bleeding badly
though the season is gone
Track Name: Northern Lights
now as the sun
fades down to dust here
all rest under
the northern light

she wastes away her
waiting nights, pacing
back through another time

rocks crack and sink
down beneath her feet
as she's floating aimlessly
through the sea

a symphony of silent lives here
with no fading down through the earth

and everywhere she goes
it's always the same

and everywhere she goes
new faces all in grey
Track Name: Golden Idols
my town, one crown
make a deal for it

search your heart (ha ha)
do ya feel for it

lost son, what's wrong?
can't you hear me?

take aim, new form
still kneel to me

my town, one crown
make a deal for it

search your heart (ha ha)
do ya feel for it

lost son, what's wrong?
can't you hear me?

take aim, new form
bow to me
Track Name: Water Soldiers
fog's rolling in, dripping off your skin
chilled to the core, calling substitutions
the competition is stone cold
they cross swords and it's all told

you
hear their voices calling
water soldiers marching
to their final destinations

there's nothing you can love left for you
the banks rise up, threatening to swallow you
this is it, the end
while you're laughing, you pretend

this waterfall isolation is chosen (x2)

tear me down I want to believe it
throw the doors wide and recommit (x2)
