Isaac Jahns This whole record is a V I B E. Such a cohesive work. It really flows like a record, not just a collection of songs that a lot of other Roch bands have done. Also major S/O for letting YP borrow a guitar at ROCKchester. Favorite track is truly a tie between Pontchartrain and Postal Codes. Favorite track: Pontchartrain.

Abdullah Choudhry Vansire isn't so great? Are you kidding me? When was the last time you saw a duo with such musical ability and talent? Vansire puts the game in another level, and we will be blessed if we ever see a duo with their skill and passion for music again. Favorite track: Reveries.

about

Reflections and Reveries was recorded over a one year period from August 2015 to August 2016. Special thanks to Amanda Kaus and Phil Beck and Mike for the mics used in the recording. Recording took place in the Winemiller basement and Josh's bedroom. We're just doing our own thing out here. Keeping it real. We hope you like this. Thanks to our parents and all of the supportive folks of Rochester Minnesota.

CDs will go up for sale Saturday

Track Name: Reflections
Wait, here we go… Alright… Alright, talk into the mic now
Track Name: Pontchartrain
See if I hadn’t been down south
I would have spent the time around you
But since I’m probably out of town
We talk and I hope it sounds true


When I’m not trapped up inside
I’m on a flight or amidst a drive


Pray to god it doesn’t rain
When I’m above Lake Pontchartrain
Copper wire and an upturned ride
It’s time spent staring at the sky
Walking through the Marigny
For Euclid past Bywater east
Dodging rainclouds northbound flight
If all holds I’ll be there tonight


These months are passing by like fields
That you and I used to drive by
Now I pass in an empty seat
In the bus I plan to arrive by
Track Name: Montana Girl
I'm eastbound on I-90
Thinking 'bout next summer
Cause we could meet in Missoula
Hike until our lungs hurt
Till my lungs hurt
It's not all that hurts if I don't see her
It's something bigger I'm feeling sure

Oh Montana girl, you're on my mind
Twelve long months pass but we'll be fine
When I see you we will spend the time
Staring at the sky from concert lines

I'm eastbound out of Portland
It's a lazy taste of alpine
I guess you're somewhere below me
Smiling under cloud lines
Keep me cloud lines
Cause I've spent about half of my life in fear
Of things that never seem to appear
For my sake leave Minnesota in June
I think her name is calling you so

Oh Montana girl you're on his mind
Twelve long months will pass but we'll all be fine
(Will I be fine, will I be fine)
Wish I'd lived my life like cheers with wine
And I'll think of you both as he makes the drive
Track Name: Bridges For the Young
The day to day is tougher
I tend to fall behind in self regard
It’s only nine past ten
And you can see the city reach for dark


Backlight spies on more than some
I’ll retrace steps to where I’m wrong


Building islands for the young
Taking pictures in the sun
I am one


Roman busts and statues
Repurposed cassettes
Three more hours to daylight
Time is running thin for bets
Seems that I’ve dreaming
And forthwith cross the skies
Overdubs and recaps, platters multiply
The soundtrack to your worries
The force that’s kept inside
Amidst the doubt and troubles
I’ll see you there in five


Backlight spies on more than some
I’ll retrace steps to where I’m wrong


Building islands for the young
Taking pictures in the sun
I am one
Track Name: Force Majeure
Life’s a force majeure
When you feel unsure
Of the path you’ll take
After what have lost
The motivation key


Feet in the sand
I have made mistakes
In the past four years
Staring at the sun
Trying to figure


Pulling leaves and branches from the
Drought stricken trees
Spinning down the highway
Hoping that you still feel the same
Track Name: Love You Too
In the distance I can see my home
Apart from home itself
You can find me near a highway
Or in a room all by myself


It’s hard to say if I’m overthinking all the things I feel
I’ll take your hand in the extra moments just to know it’s real, so


I’ll stay with you
Cause you know we’re not alone
In moments like these
It’s hard to see your face like that so


I’ll stay with you
Love you too


I dreamt I was walking around
The world had turned way upside down
And you were with me


I’ll probably lie down with background noise just to aid the feel
I’ll take your hand in the extra moments just to know it’s real, so


I’ll stay with you
Cause you know we’re not alone
In moments like these
It’s hard to see your face like that so


I’ll stay with you
Love you too
Track Name: Postal Codes
I left the gate while in a daze
Cleveland’s covered in a haze
Now I’m back for just awhile
Above the Great Lakes by several miles


On the road
Postal Codes


No one wants to be the first to admit they’re feeling scared
Clinging to these summer months before rough feelings spread
Miles above Lake Michigan at the moment it’s all fine
3 AM when I’m southeast and it seems so hypnotized


Family streaming through the door
An empty parking lot at four
In a hammock chasing jets
Finding extra time to dub cassettes
Track Name: Suits and Coats
I found myself in the west coast
Climbing rocks and learning to let go
I think about it when I’m not there
But at the edge I only stare


I crane my neck as I leave the sea
Above the mountains moving east


Look outside and know you’re not your phone
Don’t take the predetermined two-way road
Let’s ditch the people in the suits and coats
You’re only real if you can see your vote


The surf is wide and I feel the breeze
Temp has dropped but I need release
Track Name: The Life We Live
My phone was dead as you jumped aside
A purple sweater covered your eyes
Running back from the woods
And these headlights make me sigh


Cause I know you’re coming back for me this time
(my angle’s fine) it’s here we sat with all our feet and stuff aligned
Running back from the woods just to check to see you’re fine


If you give me time by myself
You may find I won’t misgive
Open doors on two way highways
Seems to be the life we live
Track Name: Swather's Gamble
He’s cut free from the ground
He’ll spread green from the sound
Track Name: Father's Ramble
Cherry bowl beside him
Time passes by
Is it irresponsible
When it’s a sunny day outside
Track Name: Water Boils
I’ve lived my life in the cold
Changing coats as I grow old
Our lives are painted in the snow
The falling will coat this stone
Close your window for the storm
In all our houses and our dorms

When all this extra time
Cedes to real life
I realize there’s no escape

Staring at the fields
Nothing’s really real
I make the winter now my home

I measure days by water boils
Mugs of tea and frozen soil
The earth is chilled and I am warm
This bridge is strong but in bad form

When all this extra time
Cedes to real life
I realize there’s no escape
Track Name: Reveries
I’ll miss the rolling hills
I’ll miss the drives
The pines and cherry trees
Your soft brown eyes


The hammock sways
And the tape deck plays
I’ll come back here another day


We’ll make the same mistakes
All of our lives
For now we’ll lie right here
And stare at the sky


Windows open passing empty schools
The earth is warm and I will see you soon

The hammock sways
And the tape deck plays
I’ll come back here another day


We’ll make the same mistakes
All of our lives
For now we’ll lie right here
And stare at the sky



Building islands for the young
Taking pictures in the sun
I am one
