michael salmons Lande's stripped-down, propulsive tracks are sheer pop joy and smart, soul-searching indie rock catharsis all at once. The melodies are earworms, sticking with you for days. The only criticism I have is it eventually ends- though the ending is classic. Recommended. Favorite track: Carpet.

Wake Up 02:04
I was a little bit sad after the day you left, after the day that we had. Wake up, wake up. I’ve pretty much had enough.
The Future 03:27
Men make speeches for a tradition, a tradition that I never did like. Throw away notebooks that I bought when I felt inspired to write songs that I never did write. Make a new friend, tell them a story. Leave out the bad part. Talking politics, rant about the Tories. Make yourself sound smart. Give up alcohol, give up cigarettes, give up on a lot of things. Think about the future - there might not be one. There probably won’t be one. Argue with a good friend - not sure what even happened. Makes you kind of feel alone. Meet someone you care about on the other side of the world and fly home on your own.
Aeroplane 03:02
The aeroplane landed after we passed the coral reef. My hands were still shaking and I cried with relief. I still felt weird from the diazepam that barely stopped me crying. I thought “I will change my life, or at least I never will stop trying”. I couldn't get to sleep, I don't think I ever turned out the light. So many things frighten me like the rise in the far right. What was I supposed to do, watch everybody leave? Sitting in my chair until I lose the will to breathe. I’ll leave you as soon as I have somewhere to go. When I see you, I think that you are someone I want to know. You’re impossible, but so am I. I don't think this will work, but I still want to try.
Carpet 02:35
I’m a nicely placed carpet for your feet. Tread on me. Each of my friends have let me down. I’ve done the same and that’s why they don’t stay.
I want my bed. I want to want to live, but instead I want my bed. I want my friends without their new jobs and their new boyfriends. I want too much, but I know it ends. Everything ends. I know there were things I got enjoyment from, why is it so hard to remember one?
Letter 02:01
I still have a letter you wrote me, you told me take it with you on tour. Save it for when you're lonely, and you wont feel sad anymore. I remember reading it in the van, I was really fed up with the boys. Your voice jumped out of the paper, and it drowned out all the noise. I wish I had a new letter, the old one doesn't work anymore. It doesn't make me feel better, it says things that I have to ignore.
Leave me alone, leave me with the problems you ignore. Stick me in the slaughterhouse down by the segregated poor. I don't want you, I don't want anyone anymore. There isn't room on this dirty bedroom floor. I live in the light of friends smarter than me. Could you show me the way to the nearest gallery? One day I’ll rise from infantile anxiety, to prioritise an equal wealth society. Define romantic before my appointment. I’ve only had gigantic, gigantic disappointment.
