Kevin Johnston This EP is a concentrated blast of alt-pop awesome: great songwriting and eclectic arrangements adding up to a strangely consistent variety.

I love the whole thing, but "We Are Missing" is one of my favorite tracks of the last few years. Listen to it, and roll deep. Favorite track: We Are Missing.

Track Name: We Are Missing
we set out in early morning
while the village slept in late
toward the rising sun we did escape
we flew by lakes of allegory
and ridges waves of sound
encompassed in a channel we are crowned

we know that we are missing
we don’t really care
you don’t have to do anything
i don’t have to do anything
and the grandest show of all plays right before my eyes
we need the getaway; we can’t refuse the taste

where life plays out in three dimensions
in binary color lights
like mechanic stories wrote in the northern sky
late night jabber over jabber
louder than my thoughts
i lose knowing of the things that i forgot

all our days run together
there’s nothing to tell them apart
we volunteered our headaches for our hearts
and when we wake in weeds and tangles
our beards and faces long
fifty wars were fought while we were gone

our exponential pace
we accelerate
Track Name: Telephone the Constrictor
telephone, you are reflection of my body
with a silver cord that plugs into the wall

telephone, you can carry my thoughts over a
thousand miles; over a hundred hills

i will call you
i will call you tomorrow

telephone, i’m at ease with you beside me
when i wake in the night from a terrible dream

telephone, a friend to always be there
when i’m in need of an open ear

oh no, oh!
don’t put me on hold
oh no please don’t drop me telephone

telephone, you’re a constrictor when i catch myself
caught up in your tangle, in your unconscious hold

when i’m away i can hear your calls rebounding
over my ringing ears over my ringing ears

can i call you?
i will call you tomorrow
Track Name: Coyote Song
across the empty desert plains
the prairie wolf is crowned a lonesome king

and the lazy days roll off your tongue
you sleep so short
but you lie so lie so long
singing your coyote song

oh, secrets bared! you grin so wide
i’m not gonna let you come inside

cunning clever animal
i can tell you’ve come to do me wrong
singing your coyote song

you creep for company
oh! your majesty
you fool around with everyone
you fool around oh how you fool me

you creep for company
oh! your majesty
you get a hold of everyone
you get a hold oh how you hold me

you creep for company
oh! your majesty
you fool around with everyone
you fool!

i’m not afraid of what you got
i’m not afraid of what you got undone
singing your coyote song
