Christopher Melkus New and surprisingly fresh. Almost impossible to pigeonhole, there's elements of post-hardcore combined with noise pop and other equally delicious colors. Incredibly smart. Favorite track: Stasis.

Track Name: Stasis
We try,
try to row,
but the water's so slow.
So dangerously slow.
We write,
and we play,
but it all goes away.
So suddenly so.
So we go
la la.
Track Name: Sleep Forever
sleep forever
somehow scared enough to sleep alone
sleeping hands on an absent clock
dreams are nothing
never even separate the days
lying strapped down on my back
and i say
it's in letter form
piece of paper
on it scrawled another metaphor
blows away into the night
and i say
it's in letter form
Track Name: Arena
we are the ones
giving time
this is the time
showering the grain with our blood
little help from up above
we are the ones
giving lives
Track Name: Season
what would you be for yourself and no one else?
how many seasons worth of regrets are on the shelf?
rip it up
tear it down
whatever it takes
hand to lend
cuts to mend
and i can't hear your words with the tv on
and i can't see the stars with the streetlights on all night
Track Name: Call On the Mild
it's early morning
the simple cold
propels you forth
the sun creeps upward
and wakes the ice
and shakes the snow
your breath before you
your vapor eyes
the path unwinds
comes into focus
the future times
the rivers ripen
if it comes calling, you have to go.
