Mike Patton This is an incredible album. Blinders will always shine through as the strongest song on this compilation album, although most will disagree. Favorite track: Blinders.

about

Our Unrelased compilation series delivers never before heard songs from the bands that make Deep Elm the label it is today. It's not a sampler...it's a full-length CD of all new songs! These are not "b side" tracks, but the same high quality recordings you've come to expect from all Deep Elm releases. Highlights of Unrelased No. 1 include the first song ever recorded by Planes Mistaken For Stars, secretly collected and quietly stashed tracks by veterans Triple Fast Action, Starmarket, Pop Unknown and Five Eight, plus brand new recordings from Brandtson, Red Animal War, Dead Red Sea and This Beautiful Mess. A must for all Deep Elm fans...new, young and old. Again, all songs are exclusive to this series - this is the only place you'll find them. (DER-402)

"With a label like Deep Elm where quality runs extremely far into the roster, it's not surprising that they were able to assemble this compilation of unreleased tunes from some of their more recent signings and a few of their more established acts. One of the smarter elements of this record is that there's ten songs...just the right amount of music for a compilation of this nature. Planes Mistaken For Stars cranks things loose with their fiery tune, Blinders. Red Animal War and the always awesome Brandtson keep the rock flowing; the latter crafting my favorite tune on the album. Brandtson's unique attachment to strong pop-sensibilities, but dark thoroughfare makes for some heavy songwriting. Starmarket, Dead Red Sea and This Beautiful Mess provide the solid finish that this disc needs. If you like Deep Elm or if you're looking to find out more, you'll dig Unreleased No. 1." - Pastepunk

"Ever since I've had contact with Deep Elm, I've liked what they've put out. Unreleased No. 1 is no exception. This record gives everyone a taste of their new and established acts and is a valuable part of any music collection because you'll never hear these songs anywhere else. Unreleased No. 1 seems to flows in the vein of any classic Deep Elm record; at times it's rough yet soothing, and the other times the music is so intricate and layered that my ears work overtime to keep up with each changing chord and beat. Those are both good things. You'll love this indie rock gem." - Graynoise

"Deep Elm has secured premium choice songs from their bands on this Unreleased collection. Planes Mistaken For Stars begins with the eruptive Blinders, as a mellow build-up quickly gives in to a tense song with turbulent dynamics. Other superior offerings come courtesy of Pop Unknown and Brandtson, who's contribution, Optimist Club, is edgy and aggressive. Five Eight were the most pleasant surprise. This melodic band has a Bob Mould or a Paul Westerberg feel to the vocals and a thick, retro guitar sound." - Mere Exposure

last time is so far it's gone. it's been a little while. since you and i all alone. do you still hear what i still say. and if you don't answer. does that mean i'm not okay. this time is all that i know. rewinding the last time. i'm perfecting this loss. and making all the wrong decisions. i won't listen. i'm falling further again. standing on the edge of something. always looking in from here. feeling all along i'm failing. will i ever go. round and round and down. i'm falling deeper into my mistakes. i will never be the same. but will i ever change

everyone wishes they were young. young enough you know it's true. they
all want to be like you. if your best day's still to come. and even your mother wants to be your best friend. but she'll never be. because all her history took something away. you wanna tell her to act her age. cause page one can tell heaven or hell. and you know we will place our bets. they'll be no regrets. no arguments. and now you know we can kinda tell. skin deep pretty. when you're young you think you know everywhere you want to go. and take it with you to the show. and the best one has his chance. you stole them all with a shaky hand. will you watch the children for me. will you be my arms for me. will you take me with you when you've gone away. everyone wishes they were fun. and luckier than all who know. the view that they wanna see. staring back at the ground. you wanna tell me that i'm your friend. so come as you are. cause you're a star

they're still fighting it out in the trench towns. people worry they might take it to town. well i've been working all night trying to make mine alright. still the pain left in my eyes. learn to sleep with the blues. let those heartaches remain. bring them down to the grave. hated all your life. hated you don't want to live no more. trashed and battered on the floor. we tried so hard just to get across to you. we always end up with nothing more to do. everything's gone wrong and they blame it all on you. it was no accident. had to check your diary. it was in self-defense. had to see what¥s in it for me. feel it's my right to know. just as everyone. tore down the factories. keeps us from plundering

Track Name: This Beautiful Mess - Unsuitable For Any Melody But Yours
who are you to me. your melodies ring in my head. how could i express. i pale into insignificance. beside you. what am i to you. is there room for me in your heart. if we had met before. would i still be building castles in the air. and you serenade me. with the sweetest of songs. and you complete me. with all your melodies. who are we to you. we can't do this on our own. do you have a plan. we run into each other. again and again. let's pretend to be good friends
