about

Nineteen battle-worn years and over 200 releases in the making, the 12th label sampler by indie stalwart Deep Elm Records features new, unreleased songs by Lights & Motion, Carly Comando, Last Lungs, The Dandelion War, Our Lost Infantry and The Lions Rampant plus fan favorites from every new release in the Deep Elm catalog, spanning the genres of cinematic post-rock, post-hardcore and indie rock to folk, punk, emo, garage rock and more. "Deep Elm Records has built a label that is home to countless amazing bands and helped a passionate community of music fans discover new artists while remaining 100% independent. In fact, it's nearly impossible to find an article talking about Deep Elm without the words 'best' and 'reputable,' arguably the two most important adjectives to earn as a record label" says Soundsupply.

Track Name: Lights & Motion - Heartbeats
(instrumental)
Track Name: Athletics - III
i read your note and i know just what you want to hear. it hurts less over time, but i’m not getting stronger i just leave pieces behind. i can only fall so many times before i’m broke, unrecognizable. now all i’ve left to give is the piece that still remains. and you bring the pieces back, love it only reconstructs the pain. as time fails to elapse i’m finding you were everything to me. now my future and past are ending tragically the same
Track Name: Dorena - My Childhood Friend
(instrumental)
Track Name: Accents - Hold Me Close
there's trouble out there, i have seen it in your face. all the madness it leaves an empty faith in you. the little things can start to take over your life. and i admit they sometimes keep me up at night with you. for you, i'd split the world in two. hold me close, don't leave like the rest. 'cus i spend too much time inside my head. i'm a mess; i'm fragile at best. the heart is only as open as we allow. and mine can't keep up with how i'm aging now. the past is nothing more than visions and ideas. imaginary places, imaginary fears. and i'm way too young to be this bitter sort of man. so wake me up and help me do the best i can for you. for you, i'd split the world in two. hold me close, don't leave like the rest. 'cus i spend too much time inside my head. and i struggle with the words to make amends. when i'm feeling down you've got to keep me close. 'cus i'm way too tough to let my feelings go
Track Name: Lights & Motion - Bravery
(instrumental)
Track Name: Carly Comando - Daydream
(instrumental)
Track Name: The Dandelion War - Bridge Keeper
you, the wonder of this city. made of limestone, strong and gritty. they came for you with arms and tanks. fired from behind their hidden camps. the war-lit sky, gold and silver. and you wound up deep in the river. a cable bridge stood in your place. before you could return to grace
Track Name: Papermoons - Arms Length
standing on two feet building walls between you and i is harder than i thought. hold you up to me and tell you how i feel. i let you down when i said i'd hold you up. but i said right from the start. we're just an arms length apart. i mean this when i say to you. that my lungs they breathe and my heart it beats blood into my arms. just enough to reach. you shake me like a thunderstorm. you pull me like a fire alarm. you put me down when you said you'd pick me. i take you with a grain of salt. but you're water so it just dissolves. i should have known by the way you walk and talk and function. but i said right from the start. we're just an arms length apart. i mean this when i say to you. that my lungs they breathe and my heart it beats blood into my arms. just enough to reach
Track Name: Moonlit Sailor - Skydiver
(instrumental)
Track Name: Our Lost Infantry - The Dry Salvages
the river burst its banks and made an island of me. a fall of rain mistaken for the coming of the sea. as floating gardens flourish where there once were forest trees. so we're all stretching up on tiptoes for the surface, trying to breathe. will icecaps melt and cover us in snow, four fathoms deep? winter come to keep me warm while i lay down to sleep. or rusty rain to hide my face, give me some relief. my hands are parting, cloudy, in a sky of disbelief. is a rose by any other name still a rose? if you go by any other name, will i still know you? if to be human is to falter, what can perfect ever mean? some nascent thing that man won't give the time or space to breathe. an image of an idea of some insubstantial thing. no search for grandeur in the kitchen when the plates went clattering. just disapproval, wringing hands - 'shrug off those childish things'. is the blackbird still a blackbird if you cannot hear it sing? will they wake once again, at dead of night, all chattering. or leave me like a bear to sleep the long days til the spring? is a rose by any other name still a rose? if you go by any other name, will i still know you? did you hear the word? in the beginning there was nothing more. is a rose by any other name still a rose? if you go by any other name, will i still know you? if you go ahead and change your face, will i still know you? i could go and fuck up everything, but i still know you.
Track Name: Last Lungs - Bricks

Track Name: Lily And The Pearl - Elephant
lay your head down next to mine. put your hand inside my hand. we'll be alright. there is nothing left for us to say. we're too weak to fight. there's a shadow creeping in blocking out all the light. there's an elephant. we're so used to him. we're storing books on his back. we don't notice how fast. he's filling up our whole house. we don't talk we don't even shout anymore. if we stay real still we'll be okay. let the dust settle around our bodies. as we decay. there is nothing left for us to throw. resentments gone away. we are waiting for some sort of truth that neither of us will say
