Andromeda rises at night in late summer,
Sleeps face down so she won't wake up.
Never had a dime, in her mind she's a rich girl
Never hesitates to drink from the cup.

Eyes so deep and I'm asleep now,
On the horizon in the northeast.
The pieces of the puzzle fall down around us.
Am I the hero or am I the beast?

We go on talking,
We go on wondering...

Impressions on the sky are a serious thing,
And I want to dream like a spaceman dreams.
She makes me ask questions that I always forget.
Am I the hero or am I the beast?

We go on talking,
We go on wondering...

Durutti Column before this; definitely a good segue! As noted, the smooth, chiming guitar sound calls the Alpinestars to mind, as well...
 
It took BillG pairing this with PF's Childhood's End for me to go +2 to 8...this cut is smooth and relaxing, Long Live RP and hope you're well wherever you are CoJo!!

Andromeda Rises
Written By: Frank Scott

Andromeda rises at night in late summer,
Sleeps face down so she won't wake up.
Never had a dime, in her mind she's a rich girl
Never hesitates to drink from the cup.

Eyes so deep and I'm asleep now,
On the horizon in the northeast.
The pieces of the puzzle fall down around us.
Am I the hero or am I the beast?

We go on talking,
We go on wondering...

Impressions on the sky are a serious thing,
And I want to dream like a spaceman dreams.
She makes me ask questions that I always forget.
Am I the hero or am I the beast?

We go on talking,
We go on wondering...
Bio, from https://www.sonicbids.com/band...

The Lost Satellites began as a studio project in the spring of 2007 in Petersburg, VA. The sound is a colorful mix of songwriting and lyricism continuing the traditions of 60's rock and 80's and 90's grunge and alt rock, blanketed with contemporary indie style and attitude. Openly introspective, often provocative, a bit irreverent, loads of fun, certainly post modern...In a medium where image has become more important than integrity, The Lost Satellites are staying focused on the music and true to the art. The band fully formed in 2008 following the release of the first album, so catch a show.

The debut album, Worlds Collide, was written and produced by Frank Scott at Flying Squirrel Studios in Petersburg, VA. Featured are many of the former members of the Richmond, VA based band, The McGuffin. Chris Mitchell contributes all but one drum track, and other players appear scattered throughout the songs. Special guest appearances are made by Peter Holsapple (R.E.M., Hootie and the Blowfish, The Db's), who plays a stellar hammond organ arrangement on song 4, "Not For Profit." Another former Db's member, Chris Stamey (Whiskeytown, Caitin Cary, The Db's) mixed the album, and lended a nice synth track on "Hole."

Nice bass on this one!
very nice, indeed

I thought this was going to be "Triad" by Jefferson Airplane. Kind of glad that it wasn't. I'm not ready for that this morning.

I like this but I need some "new new" from you Bill.  Did you see that Springsteen covered Lorde?
pretty goodish, will like it more if I hear it again, or something else from this album

He turned into Ray Davies for a minute there, lots of vocal comparisons on this singer ...
Nice!
The song is a decent 5, but great pictures
Quite like the repetition at the ending - quite hypnotic
Thought this was Beck........

Wow, that guy has David Gilmour's voice!
 
That is kind of like saying someone has Thom Yorke's dance moves or Dave Grohl's guitar skills.  Not bad, but not their greatest talent.
pretentious and boring at the same time.. not a perfect combination :-(
Not a bad tune, but of course, the band has been accused of plagiarizing any previous artist who has ever strummed an acoustic guitar.
Reminds me of Dr. Robert from the Beatles played in slower tempo.

Sure doesn't have David Gilmour's fingers.
Started slow and boring and tried to grind me down instead of building itself up - not for me.

I was hoping for more...consistency? 
 
I liked the songs Everything Ends and You've Lost Your Mind from the download, they're a bit more moody like this one comparatively

Ditto....but not his guitar skills.

just checked out the video for the tune "Worlds Collide". Really nice stuff.
I like this very much. 7>8.
This song is helping me chill after a long night of work.

I think there's a little hint of The Beatles in this.
These guys are about to release another album this year. Can't wait to hear it.
On the one hand I feel so happy to hear this, and then so sad that many never will. Commercial radio/listeners just cannot sit still long enough to appreciate this. Lucky me, I guess. Thanks for another turn-on, Bill.
We go on, Don King?
Nice.
Sounds a bit like Beat A Drum by R.E.M., at least at the beginning...

Wow - first listen for this, and I really like it a lot! Hope I get to hear it a few more times - I suspect I'll change my rating. {#Bounce}

5 —-> 6    After hearing it a couple more times I'm hearing a little similarity to Alpinestars
 

And David Bowie deserves a nod here as well, burning it up again!

Yes, and that's not a bad thing...

Yep, thumbs up for this one! Sounds vaguely familiar.....
Yes, I really like the chorus, nice little ditty!{#Daisy}
Nice tune.  I don't know Camel very well, but this reminded me of them.  The jangly guitar reminds me of Jefferson Airplane's "Triad".

Beck much? 
Quite Likeable.
Cool melodies and good lyrics! Like this one!
Wow, that guy has David Gilmour's voice!

I only got it to change 0.8

A little slow to follow Doves, '5'.
