Leave Or Be Yours
RIYL: Sea Wolf, Rogue Wave, early Death Cab for Cutie
Favorites: 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8
1. (4:21) Battle Lines - Rumbling bassline. Chiming, jangly guitars. Repetitive lyrically. Mid-tempo.
*2. (3:20) Stoic Resemblance - More up-tempo. Kind of a chill jam, Helio style. Ostensibly existential lyrics about redemption and reality.
*3. (4:13) Red Shifting - Mid-tempo. Repetitive lyrics about letting it bleed. Gorgeous, subtle electric guitar that paces along steadily. Drumming is prominent and meshes nicely with the bassline. Chiming guitar solo starts ~2:40 and goes for around 30 seconds.
*4. (3:53) Upward Mobility - More emotive, powerful vocals. Multiple layers of rushing, colorful guitars and gliding keyboards.
*5. (3:13) Leave or Be Yours - Mostly a guitar melody with some ambient sounds and a subtle, groovy bassline. Ethereal vocals that often hold back to let the guitars shine.
*6. (3:42) Deuces - Faster drumming. Soft, gently piercing electric guitars. Strong vocals and lyrics dealing with loss of love. Brief guitar solos interspersed throughout. DJs take note: starts fading out ~3:15.
7. (2:39) Inconsequential Ties - Folkier. Acoustic guitars and what sounds like tambourines.
*8. (2:52) Seven Hours - Melancholy. Lyrics about yearning for an unattainable beloved. Gentle, twinkling guitar melody. Fluttering synths that come in and out and enhance the ethereal vibe of the track. Gorgeous.
9. (3:34) Phantom Shore - First 0:50 is an ambient melody with lots of distortion. Bass and vocals come in. Dark, mysterious, anguished. Lyrics about dreams and things beyond one’s reach - a “phantom shore”. One of the better tracks lyrically. Lots of instrumental passages. ~2:25 during an instrumental break, instrumentation and later vocals become more aggressive and impassioned.
10. (3:56) Never Going Back - Atmospheric. Simple lyrically. Skippable.
