Heard the rattle from the train
Sounds of a hundred people,
Maybe more
Cut through the ropes before you came
I had a dream that you were gone.

I'm in the days of throwing rocks
When I saw your picture on a silver coin
Stole a kiss through your golden locks
I had a dream that you were gone.
Woke up and you were gone

All this love has gone away
'Cause I didn't have the heart or strength to say
I'll miss you when you're gone
I'll miss you when you're gone
I'll miss you when you're gone
I'll miss you when you're gone

Heard the rattle from the chains
This goddamn room it gets so small sometimes
I had a dream that you were gone
Woke up and you were gone

dude singing is  a bit precious, but otherwise it's very nice.
Moody, just the way I like it. I will check them out. Instant 8
saw them in Paris, and loved it {#Hearteyes}{#Bananajam}
I love this whole album!
A better song by them is "Draw Your Swords."

This is Julia Stone from Angus and Julia Stone. I went to the Southern Roots Festival in April. It was amazing.

Nice photo.  That's a pretty expensive guitar to be putting duct tape on the face of, even if it is to keep a sound-hole cover on; I guess desperate times called for desperate measures. She can get another guitar through endorsements or get someone to clean off the glue residue, I guess.   Cool song.
Definitely one of those grab you by the brainstem-kinda voices; there can be no doubt that she is transmitting THE REAL THING here!

She reminds me of the recently passed Signe Toly Anderson, original member of the Jefferson Airplane, look not sound
Beautiful.
Beautiful and haunting.

She looks about 12!  Did her parents drive her to the gig?
" Ok so which one is 'the straight and narrow,' cuz they both look the same to me."  Good tune.

Nice!
This album makes quite a striking impression. It is truly worth buying. Thanks, Radio Paradise, for turning me on to it.
When you come to a fork in the road, look out for the knife!  {#Eek}
Ok, I've changed my mind - I don't like this song so much anymore. . .

Is that deep Indian knowledge...?

I say: If you come to a fork - railroad it!
Has an ethereal sound that is simultaneously relaxing and pleasing. A sound that bypasses the conscious and goes straight to the soul.

Pretty song, BTW.


 
I was thinking of that Yogi-ism when I looked at this cover too!

Good sounds!

Kind-a sweet ... good way to start a nice warm morning—and warmer by the minute—in the north-east, of the south, of the north, of the east {#Sunny}

Me too!! Love this song {#Daisy}
This song is "Quite Likeable"

I don't understand what prompted the Mellencamp request below.  {#Stupid}  If you are so jonesin' for Mellencamp — spare us the misery and BUY THE CD!  Listen on your own time.  He probably doesn't get played on RP because he is way overplayed on mainstream radio.

A question totally out of contect!

Why we do not hear nothing of "MELLENCAMP" on RP?

I think I am a member here for 5 years or so,
I do not listen 24 hours a day, but there are
weeks and month when I am 10 hours online with RP - at least!

Still!

No Mellencamp! Why is that! Is he not good enough? Does Bill not like him?
Do RP-listener do not like him?

He has a huge catalogue with at least 20-25 songs one could play at all times
to get applause!

What is it about him...?

Can anybody tell? Please?
 

Do you mean John Mellencamp? A quick search of the RP database reveals 40 of his songs, but the ones I looked at appear to be played few times if at all (based on the number of ratings).

Here's one that has at least a few ratings: Pink Houses

Because it's great! Subtle and effective.

Love it. The piano - soft notes....and then the train-track spatter of the snare drum. Awesome.  
What a great tune. Never heard of these cats before.
Wonderful way to enjoy my coffee sitting in a dark office on a rainy morning.
great mellow set for this overcast day in philadelphia:

angus & julia stone - silver coin
beth orton - thinking about tomorrow
Calexico - slowness
Does anybody gets reminded to Tom McRae by this voice? Sounds extremely related in my ears. Love it. Fin de siècle tunes...
Musically, I love this song, but I have to say I don't like the choppy delivery of the vocals.  That stacatto stuff has its place, but in this case it doesn't work for me, sorry.  6.
Reminds me a bit of Jess Sykes and the Sweet Hereafter.  Another lovely discovery - thanks Bill!

Fine.

Less clipping and I would rate this.  Right now holding off until I get a few more passes by the ear.
Nice morning music for those of us on the left coast.
Nice. Love the bass tone/groove below the strings.
just like dean and britta.
8 {#Arrow} 9 !!

Feh
So weak it hurts...
Wow. This song came on RP, just as I was listening to this live version:

Nice... anyone know what the rest of the album is like?

Similar?

First time I heard this one...
I've got "The Beast" on the LRC. Thought that would get uploaded before this. Glad this did though...


Simple yet evocative lyrics. The yearning is palpable.

Heard the rattle from the train
Sounds of a hundred people,
Maybe more
Cut through the ropes before you came
I had a dream that you were gone.

I'm in the days of throwing rocks
When I saw your picture on a silver coin
Stole a kiss through your golden locks
I had a dream that you were gone.
Woke up and you were gone

All the love has gone away
Cos I didn't have the heart or strength to say
I'll miss you when you're gone
I'll miss you when you're gone
I'll miss you when you're gone
I'll miss you when you're gone

Heard the rattle from the chains
This goddamn room it gets so small sometimes
I had a dream that you were gone
Woke up and you were gone



 

Not sure about this one yet but so far it's pleasant enough.  A 7 to start.
