Welcome to the sound outside your door
Welcome to the sun that's shining for
You and all your kind, be kind love more
welcome to the world, the world at war

Open up your heart, its cold outside
The tides about to turn there's nowhere to hide
This is not a dream, let freedom ride
Welcome to the sound, the sound inside

Think about his words and what they mean
Things are not a lie, they're what they seem
This is not a cause for which to bleed
Think about the world and what it needs

Open up your heart, its cold outside
The tides about to turn there's nowhere to hide
This is not a dream, let freedom ride
Welcome to the sound the sound inside

Sweet! 1st time. Sounds a little Phil Collins but mellow and that’s the magic.
Been loving and listening to this track for yrs on and off and never knew Breaks co-op were kiwi! Sweet As Bro!
Have submitted quite a few kiwi bands Straitjacket Fits the Chills and others but all declined

They're telling Bart that  the logical conclusion is that they're his father. 🙂

Love The Chills... please Bill check them out.  A good fit?
 

The Chills are fantastic. 
Original Luna line up was people from Chills, Feelies, Galaxy 500.
Bill, you really need to play more from all 4 of these great bands.

Snow Patrol wants their singer back.

Definitely has a Snow Patrol feel to it. I like it.
This one had me from the first spoken words. It's a bit profound. I could complain that it's a bet repetitive. But the words are excellent. Chills. 9. 
Do do that doo-doo that you do so well...   solid 3 But let us say "Go Breakers!" anyway.

Nice to hear a New Zealand band/artist other than Neil Finn/Crowded House. There are some others I like better though and, I think would be a good fit for RP. Hollie Smith, The Adults, The Naked & Famous & Greg Johnson to name just a few.

 
What about Straightjacket Fits or The Chills?  We don't get any of them on RP either although I think they'd be nice additions.

Beck.........on Quaaludes. But nothing's much wrong with that.

I know.  I wish Bill would only play Death Metal or at least limit all of his selections to tunes with more than 260 bpm.

 
Pure, unadulterated genius.  I salute you, Proclivities.

I'm thinking The Cure, Like Cockatoos. Cool tune
Hey Bill......how about 'The Otherside' or 'Settle Down'.....?

Chill tune...

Does that mean it's relaxing or boring?

So terrific indeed!
Soporific.
Chroma Key with Peter Gabriel (a really low-key version) on vocals. Like it, might have to look closer at these Co-ops.
Cool song even without the lyrics, but these add.

Has someone already commented that this is reminiscent of Snow Patrol?

..so you're saying their sound is "Co-op"ted..?..
Perhaps its just me but I would love to hear this go into a heavier guitar led section ala Little Black Submarines.  It gets my attention as is but only so as to make me say yeah what do you want? 
Really diggin' this.  Never heard of them before.  It sounds like a blend of Sonic Youth, Semisonic, and Zero 7.  Niiiice!
First time i have heard this or the group will have to investigate. The instrumentation at the start and throughout reminds me of a Sonic Youth song possibly from A Thousand Leaves, one of the quieter ones.

Something new, thats why i listen to RP. 
One of my favourite albums (if not the) Thank you for playing it. If you can play it, I would love to hear "A Place For You" from this album sometimes.

You don't have to go anywhere to have fun. This track is growing on me and up to a 9 already.

Bob Homme? 

Always love it when I turn on RP and you're playing kiwi music - never heard of these guys though!  Still hoping you might play some Fat Freddy's Drop one of these days.
I'll do a weird mind stretch, no problem.  But some of the stuff played earlier this afternoon (or whatever time it was on the Left Coast) was obnoxious. 
awful. absolutely and completely boring
I thought it was Dumbledore maybe?

ditto

This is one of those awkward songs where I can only rate it a 5 but I'm glad my rating doesn't affect the current 6.8 that it's at.
I think this one would pair nicely with Black Sabbath's "Planet Caravan"
Let it out!

Just a little quirky.

I like it.

I was thinking the same thing.
NOT BAD!

Still a long way to reach "ZERO7"


Nice, moody...{#Notworthy}{#Bananajam}{#Curtain} Peter Gabriel-ish

This is an EXCELLENT CD, if you're in the market. Very similar to Zero 7 or Air.

Every time this song starts, my ears perk up — OH!  It's *that* song I like!  For some reason I can never remember the band's name.  I will just have to break down and get this song sometime soon....  love it
Vocalist sounds a bit like (but not as god-like) Peter Gabriel, as well...
Agreed. Thought was Snow Patrol vocalist at first. Still, like it.

Thems the Breaks. {#Wink}
had to buy the album after hearing this song. Love the timeless sound these guys have. This is probably the best on the cd, but there are a couple other good ones..
Vocals remind me a bit of Chroma Key / Kevin Moore.

Spare, sparse and powerful.  A minimalist masterpiece.

Smooth!

Quietly powerful. . .

Very Pinback-like.

I made a screen saver using this and a couple of other Breaks Co-op tunes....very nice!  {#Sunny}
This grabbed me instantly.  Very cool.
New Zealand shout-out!!!

A really great album...it is better listened to as a whole body of work as opposed to single tracks. Their other album "Roofers" is quite worthy as well!

Do I detect a hint of Sonic Youth-ness?


*edit:  And a bit of very old Cure in the guitar chord progressions occasionally dropping into darkness.
 
Both of which would be good things, IMHO. I like this song! 
...i've come close to buying this CD on more than one occasion, just on the strength of this track - i'd like to hear more of it...

RP-Bill knows - that´s for certain!

Better is Burroughs "Spare Ass Annie and other Stories"
The sound inside - Breaks co-op - haunting - mezmerizing, effing unreal !!!
Fucking great
only 3 seconds in, and i am so excited. rowr!
Thought it was Elbow for a minute...

. . . at the risk of appearing to be a deconstructionist, this cut "sounds like" a cross between Interpol & Pinback. . . nice. . .
I was thinking Porcupine Tree
The singer sounds a bit like Lou Barlow to me.
Hmm. This reminds me of Summerbirds in the Cellar. Speaking of which, that band should be played on RP, I don't think I've ever heard it here.
When there is nothing left to burn... no wait, that's another one.
I wanted to upload some of their stuff. Some of their other work is well worth a listen. Great to hear a Kiwi act other than Crowded House on RP.
Its very musical it makes you want to DANCE. :whistle:
Sounds like America (the band) meets Darth vader ...
Gawd this is boring! :grumpy:

Hey - good to hear some Kiwis getting some air time - this makes for some cool listening - many thanks RP :clap:
:yes: Many thanks to Amazon and DebateG for their contribution of the lyrics. This song makes chills run up and down my arms. The subjective reaction to music is what really counts. This one gave me frissons.

Nothing original here Can't understand how they got a record deal
they should collaborate with Queens of the Stone Age...
