plainastralchurch A lovingly crafted tribute to an artist that influenced so many of us, this album is a delightful journey through many modes of musical exploration - from danceable synth-pop to lower-key meditations on existence. It really is an evocative piece of unique musical history. Thoughtful, soulful, positive. Favorite track: Pins of White on the Shroud.

Electric Dream Society Futuristic-tinged, dreamy electronic music with the perfect blend of male + female essence. Lovely music, beats, lyrics + down-to-earth, brilliant creative-minded people! <3 Wonderful, Kedari Station! Favorite track: Mother's Milk.
Tracy Perry

Tracy Perry From start to finish there's a string of consciousness flowing through. The spark that formed the basis for the tracks is there, with the unique synthesis of being the artists bring to the table. Condensing these bits of their selves into each song, we can feel it pulsing out from each song. Favorite track: L'Enfant Univers.

Track Name: Running
No matter how we try to change

so many things just stay the same

another face, a different place

but always giving up the chase
and I'm running

don't turn away

keep the pace with me

running

but not running away

trying to catch our dreams
others try to slow us down

but we're not planted in the ground

look to each other for our strength

and rise above the things that hate
now I'm running

don't turn away

keep the pace with me

we're running

but not running away

catch the fleeting dream
Running
don't turn away
keep the pace with me
running
but not running away
now we live our dream
Track Name: Lucky
I realize just how lucky we can be
all i need is to look around and see
in such a little time, we've come so far
before we've come to grips with who and what we are

I understand just how lucky we must seem
sometimes I cannot tell my real life from my dreams
though I can see that for you it's much the same
why must we insist on always playing this game?

Well this could be my lucky day
(I've never felt so lovely)
I'm seeing things in a different way
(there's only stars above me)
My luck has changed, I hope it stays
(is someone looking after me?)
I've come so far since yesterday
(am I the only one who sees?)

When we're raised inside a culture of complaints
instead of what we love we turn our focus to the things that we hate
if we gaze on everything that brought us here
we can finally pull the future that we wanted near

Now I see just how lucky that I've been
all these years when I felt so stuck between
where I want to be, yet feel left outside
when for my whole life I've been on the inside

But this could be my lucky day
(I've never felt so lovely)
I'm seeing things in a different way
(there's only stars above me)
My luck has changed, I hope it stays
(is someone looking after me?)
I've come so far since yesterday
(am I the only one who sees?)
Track Name: Quantum Singularity
How did we come to this place
and sacrifice our time and space
for all these riches that aren't real
distracting us from how we feel?

Like a black hole that pulls you in,
we're told we failed when we begin.
who would discourage us to shine
instead of making us divine?

But we'll succeed collectively
to make our own reality
free to live inside our hearts -
that kind of freedom is always ours.

So give the TV back it's soul,
say goodbye to ground control,
take that chance and step outside,
and don't forget, enjoy the ride.
Track Name: Into the Light
Into the light
everything's plain to see
nowhere to hide
not like it used to be
open your eyes
see what we really are
there's no surprise inside…

As we're changing our raging
and feeding the need to fight
reaching far into the light

Into the light
I never thought I would
exit the night
even my shadow could
never deny
it's only half of us
everyone tries to hide…

As we're changing our hating
and feeling the need to lie
stepping out into the light
Track Name: Mother's Milk
From my understanding
it starts with a sound
and as it's resounding
the waves make the ground
we swim in this ocean
and run through these fields
our ears guide our motions
our hearts turn the wheel

(This is how we feel,
this is what is real)

So slowly vibrating
eroding, with time
yet always creating
the horizon line
we feed on this rhythm
and breathe in these notes
the melody shows us
where we need to go

(This is where it flows,
this is what we know)

Forever expanding
creating our worlds
perpetually ringing
transforming this pearl
the music is making
the sound of the spheres
which makes no distinction
of who gets to hear

(This is what we hold dear,
this is nothing to fear)
Track Name: Genesis?
A new beginning, life still expanding

always looking for a new place to thrive

and ever changing - or re arranging

a new world rising from the old one that died
As we're evolving, the seeds are sprouting

always looking for a new place to grow

we feel the doubting disintegrating

all it blocked is now beginning to flow

Like a dew drop spinning through space and time

just to re appear on the horizon line

we make the world by our design

the more we dream, the more we find

all the things we want to see

while we create reality

by living in the harmony

of our collective destinies

Initiation, a celebration

as we're becoming all the things that we are

realization, sanctification

moving outward, but do we know how far?
and the elation of our station

a concentration of the things we have learned

no longer waits on our hesitation

our destination, our new leaf overturned.

Like a dew drop spinning through space and time

just to re appear on the horizon line

we make the world by our design

the more we dream, the more we find

all the things we want to see

while we create reality

by living in the harmony

of our collective destinies
Track Name: the Space Cowboys
In another barren landscape
like the mountains of the moon
deep in our imagination
far beyond the dusty dunes

we lift off and make our journey
guiding stars won't let us stray
from familiar terra firma
parsecs past the milky way

Yippie yo, hippie hey
climb aboard, ride away
if you want to make some noise
join the space cowboys
Yuppie no, You can't pay
or you're gonna have to stay
It's a brave new world
just in case you haven't heard.

it's a kind of evolution
passing through the photon belt
and we all become accustomed
as illusions slowly melt

with a modicum of courage
and a thing not unlike faith
there's a chance that in our lifetime
we can change the human race

Yippie yo, hippie hey
climb aboard, ride away
if you want to make some noise
join the space cowboys
Yuppie no, You can't pay
or you're gonna have to stay
It's a brave new world
just in case you haven't heard.
Track Name: Stardrop Superlative
Star man
have you gone back home
or fulfilled your own
wanderlust?

Space boy
just began to learn
as your ashes turn
to Star dust.

Maybe
the Jean Genie came
and took Aladdin Sane
back outside?

Better
to ask the Buddha
In suburbia
or inside.
