David Greenwald A sweet, lovely acoustic indie-pop collection. "Fast and Heavy" is the best song about a train since the Dylan one. Favorite track: Fast and Heavy.

Rob Green I had several of those why-did-I-get-goosebumps moments while listening to this collection. Not sure what that means, but there it is. Favorite track: Only Someday.

The Warm Hardies Seattle, Washington

The Warm Hardies began in 2010 with a chance meeting thanks to a wrong address and an opening act’s last minute cancellation – Matt and Tamara shared the stage before even being introduced.

Track Name: Fast and Heavy
You're moving fast and heavy
And in this massive vessel
I do travel quite inevitably
And there's no turning back now
It's just a solid fact that I am going
Where you're going to be

You would take me even if I kick and scream

You're moving slow and steady
I'm made of flesh and love
But I feel safer than you can guarantee
From car to car I wander
There's time to plot and ponder
What I'm going, where I'm going to be

You would take me even if I kick and scream

And you are so set in your ways
But I cannot place the blame
I know that's just how you were made
A globally consistent gauge
It's been your purpose since the day
All your steel tracks were laid

You're so slow but you're so steady
You've got grace but you're so heavy
