Art Fin Very good indie-rock band from Houston with loud, shoegaze-influenced guitars and lovely, fragile vocals by Laila Ashleigh Mendoza on this 2015 self-released CD. A fine DIY effort. Favorite track: The Underground.

Jabod Female-fronted shoegaze from Houston, with a powerful melodramatic sound and emotional vocals that puts them towards the indie rock end of the spectrum. A nice find.

Track Name: The Underground
Don't slow me down
I'll spit you out
I'm onto something, onto something now

Anticipate, appreciate
I come from nothing
I am the Underground
Wild and free, aren't we?

Manipulate the DNA
We dipped our hands into the stars
and watched them change

Don't count me out
I'm not afraid
I come from nothing
I am the underground

If you're busy looking down
can't wonder why
it's too amazing
If you stop to cry, complain or whine
everything's changing

Wild and free, aren't we?

I watched the cells inside me change
Exposed the bones
and put them back into their place

I am the vengeance
I am the now
I was never really down
I am the underground
Track Name: Metronome
What was I thinking?
did you feel that in your veins?
dreaming of the past when
we were just girls
dancing in our living room
in our living room

I can't take it
just let me take your place

My heart is beating steady as a metronome
It's better kid, better now then you even know

Oh I was running
running just to feel the wind on my face
all of our moments like flashes
just invading my brain

Oh my brain

Watching you like this
melting down before me
before me (before me)

Why won't you just let me take your place?

I ran down the empty streets praying for help
but the pavement swallowed me whole

The projects that we lived in
the candles in our room.

Your eyes seemed to melt in the dark
ballerinas in the yard
the marks on your arm
the candles in our room
ballerinas in the yard

My heart is beating, steady as a metronome
It's better kid, better now then you even know
I ran down the empty streets praying for help
But the pavement swallowed me whole
Track Name: Under The Gun
This time I'll do it right
Try to change the Past
but it doesn't work like that
No it doesn't work like that

We're under the gun now
We're under the gun now

Time is running out
We're under the gun now

Oh this time I'll do it right
I made mistakes
Can I still change our Fate?
Can I? Can I? Can I?

It can't end like this
No it can't end like this

We're under the gun now
We're under the gun now

Time is running out
We're under the gun now
Track Name: Reunite
I hope we meet
in another life

you and I
reunite

won't be so complex
won't feel so alone

you and I
in another time
in another life

just try to breathe
we will exist

you and I
in another life

reunite
reunite
reunite
Track Name: Dark Of The Room
I do it wrong but it's okay
I'm still alive as I twist the arrows out of my chest
just put a little love in my emptiness

The Past, she's a bitch
in her combat boots
all the things that she did
in the dark of the room
dripping pitch black eyes
what a gruesome sight

Makes me sick
tarry sludge oozes from my lips
God let me forget
I can't be reminded again
I hate watching your face change
just let me reverse

The Past, she's a bitch
in her combat boots
all the things that she did
in the dark of the room
gotta live while the blood moves
still moves inside

I wanted more for you little girl in my memory
Hey I'm still here (just let me live)

What did you do just to survive?
What did you do just to survive?
Track Name: The Executioner
A little air in my lungs
I am revived

Surprise! Surprise!
I'm still alive

I grip your bones
they snap like branches

Tonight I watch you writhe
it's time you got what you deserve

I was the dirt
now I'm above the ground

In the dark of the room
I found my way out

Flesh and bone it made of me
and ammunition of my tongue

I left my body now I return
all the fragments reattached

and rising above the ground

It's time you got what you deserve

I'm the executioner
Track Name: Kids
I once saw this in a dream
clouds of dust still follow me

I once felt so incomplete
I would do most of,
most of anything

I once laid down in the street
let the cars come and run over me

I don't know if I ever realized
what it did to me
you fucked it up alright
when we were kids
did we get out in Time?

So drag me out, drag me out
in the public square

I can barely breathe that human air

I see you everyday inside my head
I don't want to close my eyes
I'll feel alone again

I don't know if I ever realized
you're so screwed up
but so am I

All our lives is never enough Time

Our bones barely breathe in the dark
we are nowhere where we really are
Track Name: Panic
When it's time to melt our bones
and watch our lives reverse
I wonder what it feels like
I imagine it might hurt

What comes after is a mystery
but everyone's convinced

It's anyone's guess isn't it? isn't it?

Wake up in the middle of the night
don't think too much

I might just panic
I might just scream
I might just see you in everything

And in the world
the next one to come
if it exists at all

It's anyone's guess isn't it? isn't it?
Track Name: Nothing Stays
I am alone and scared

(why are you so afraid?)
my skin does shake
when the ground is moving
my heart does race
(well I have always loved you, I always loved you, I always did)

Am I the dark or the light?
are they separate or intertwined?
I'll never know until I die

And watch it fade
Everything change
(Nothing stays the same)

I am not the bones
the blood, the brain
one day I'll fade
won't be too late
and leave just the DNA

And watch it fade
Everything change
(Nothing stays the same)

(rise up, rise)

And watch it fade
Everything change
Track Name: Consequences
Oh the consequences of
unconditional love
when I collapse from all the fear
let you go

I want to keep you still
It will change
I know it will

Do I just let you go?
let you go

Vast atomic emptiness
planet heavy with regret
a galaxy of something I just don't get

I just don't get

What kind of love is that?
Track Name: White Noise
White noise, white noise
don't want to hear the news
can't stand to see you
tell me you're okay
the way you answer the phone
it sounds like we're in a tunnel
it makes me question everything

A thin veil around my eyes
a thick fog surrounds my skin
white noise, let me leave my body

Don't want to be, just can't exist
tell me you're okay

Don't want to hear the news
images of us younger
twist my body into knots

I unfold into the ground

Let me leave my body

Tell me you're okay
Tell me you're okay
Tell me you're okay
