johnthescone being a massive wolfhounds fan I had to have a listen and I love Andrew golding's vocal lead on wolfhounds songs eg built-in obsolescence, fire in the home etc so it was a must for me and it didn't disappoint Favorite track: The Builders.

Dirty Stick 00:48
The Builders 06:16
The Builders Misarchitects demonize cities and towns The old and inspired are knocked to the ground The Yen, Euro, Dollar inspire demand The battle for history lost and disarmed   Daylight is exposed as good waste of night We block and impose as enclosures need height Why look at the sky when there's nothing to see? No Heaven, no Hell, just this blank purgatory   Bad interpretations Crystalized in minds Memorized as theories And we trust that theories are right   All rational thought is dismissed, pushed aside The vision that stains blinkered eyes will decide A moment of madness becomes a design It ticks all the boxes, it's modern, it's fine    The magic of ruins is ruined, once gone The gentrification, the dust and the wrong The leather-bound book of historical smiles Can never replace the smell of the miles The builders decipher the numbers and signs Dumb conduit devils just reading their lines Back slaps for the boys, and more jobs for the world They're blameless and shameless and nameless
One Miserable Summer Light pokes the horizon as a child would Asking questions until its hushed Sensing the arrival of a stranger With your eyes closed, expectation rush   Open information into silence Hurry nature inhibition crushed Fragments of a moment pieced together   One Miserable Summer Could evaporate the memory Of beautiful days in the rain   Lost thoughts are an island Frame the random into patterns to find symmetry Ration a dimension as a reason, a suggestion of dignity Feel anticipation of a question, an obsession with yesterday  Smells will flag a memory of energy     Feeding the perception That the present learned the lessons of history Heads nod, and the eyes know, as the clouds burst Dead space is so limiting
These Are Dangerous Times   The long untrodden path of abstinence is laid The only evidence of moderation fades The way is littered with abandoned good intent Nobody noticed where it went   Face facts or persecution These are dangerous times Turn down a known solution These are dangerous times You can fold attitudes into the shape you desire Holding back on wonder only fills the gaps with lies   Come misappropriation, sit with me tonight Unburden expectations we demand the light Distance fuels affection for an object of desire Burn like paper morals on a fire    Orchestrate your way inside unknotting string quartets No standing ovation you deserve what you will get Bury strangers with the past and everything they made You won't abandon things again
Slap 02:16
Join The Dots Truth is fuel for bores, doubt justly ignored Close an open mind, join the dots in lines   Insincere desire, proof is not required Common sense deplored, rise above the law   Fear of closure justifies Intervention from a safe height To observe. A quiet life. The risk ignored until we're right   Hunt in shuffled packs, kill the cards we lack Surf on ones and noughts, drown in shallow thoughts    Theory's stand alone Find the known unknown Peace was up for grabs, now we dust for dabs
The Dumb 02:38
The Dumb A Cut and paste denial Hide evident opinions, old and tired Within, still a spark The day will come When we, The Dumb Will speak from the dark   An army in decline Confused and lost battalions for hire   A destiny resigned Fate will rub its hands and bide its time
Bucket List I want to be irrelevant A blank face in an unknown sea I want to be irrelevant And live the possible dream Just live the possible dream   While I'm composing my bucket list   I want to be indifferent I want to go where time just flows I want to be indifferent And nobody cares what I know And nobody cares what I know   While I’m revising my bucket list   I want to be invisible Disappear inside my mind I want to be invisible And be so very, very hard to find Be so very, very hard to find   Punching holes in my bucket list   Decisions crumbling Chalk words on a blackboard Lost words on a blackboard Good intentions are tomorrow's ghosts I’m crossing nothing off my bucket list Still crossing nothing off my bucket list
Solidarité 00:21


Music-wise expect similar terrain being covered as Moonshake, The Telescopes and of course Wolfhounds - but it is paired with acoustic folky bits reminding of The Notwist. A very remarkable effort !
