lloydd Psychedelic/blues rock from this five member band from Germany. Excellent female vocals, backed up by a more than capable band. Nice guitar solos, solid rhythm section, and that organ, mixed together gives this record a hard rock organic feel. Favorite track: Beyond The Blue Fields.

Marcin Wielewski Keys opening the album introduce nice and warm 70's rock scene. We got a blues rock fronted by female vocs and lot of psychedelic trips. Favorite track: Little Owl.

Henrik Thøgersen Willow Child weave a wondrous spell, their songs whispering elemental tales of naked feet dancing through darkened woods, of arcane rituals performed on moonlit moors, the infinite cosmos wheeling overhead. This is music of earth, of wind, of fire. Favorite track: Little Owl.

Little Owl 06:25
Little Owl In the old, old willow tree, there you’ll be whenever I come. With warm eyes, open and dark, there you see, there you hark. With wings ready to fly, no you don’t leave, no you don’t. In the moon, in the sun, whenever I come. I thank you little owl for keeping my soul. With wings ready to fly, no you don’t leave, no you don’t leave. Even when the clouds break the sky, you stay with me and let me cry. In the old, old willow tree there you’ll be whenever I come. In the moon, in the sun, together as one. I thank you my little owl for keeping my soul.

Eirene 03:58
Eirene She flies through the nights of ashes. Eirene with wings of cure. She carries the bodies and lights up the sky. Tomorrow they’ll come back to war. Their heads held high and millions cry. And they wander and never rest in the Age’s Wheel. She flies through the nights of ashes. Eirene with wings of cure. So tell me, please tell me you’ll understand soon. Tomorrow we’re walking in bloom. Their heads held high and millions cry. And they wander and never rest in the Age’s Wheel. Lay me down in withered beds. Rumors and blades scream in my head. Whatever holds peace in good ones and felon’s souls, the time always releases the buried guns under their soles.

Land Of Sloe 05:28
Land of Sloe You, whispering voice in the wind. The movement in my body, in my limbs. You, the one in my head, the one in my dreams. You always kept your eyes on me. The days when the hoarse trains got slow, and even words of love got low, the roots were always deeper than the sinking ground. You didn’t let us drown. We, we took a long, long walk for years. All along the tidal ways. The way I go in the Land of Sloe, the Land of Sloe. The way I go. You, whispering voice in the wind. The movement in my body, in my limbs. You, my beautiful hiding place. The one who best knew my soul’s face. Look around what tomorrow brings. Vows are glowing in golden rings. The way I go in the Land of Sloe, the Land of Sloe. The way I go. Can hear the heartstrings singin’ and see the thoughts they’re wingin’ and watch the wild, wild birds. Can feel the birch tree growin’ and let hope, hope glowin’ and watch the wild, wild birds.

Starry Road 04:32
Starry Road Starry Road and starry-eyed. Drift to nowhere side by side. There is no border, there is no chase. No destinations on our way. Names are written in the sand. Want to remember but still can’t. Catch the waves surrounding me. Floating away – my destiny. Heightened temper, lightning ride. Pass the ruins of our life. Fallen moments, hard to hold. Who’s gonna stay in days of old. Names are written in the sand. Want to remember but still can’t. Catch the waves surrounding me. Floating away – my destiny.

Beyond the Blue Fields If I ever reach the mountain top and I stand and look up to the summit cross, it will make sense, beyond the blue fields. When the time got slow and heat got cold, by the sober truth my thoughts exploded. I feared for you, beyond the blue fields. Together on the road and coast, you taught me to ease my mind, the most. Sweet elixir. Beyond the blue fields. When the storm comes in we will rise again, again. When the darkness comes, crawls up my walls, a racing heart and conscience falls. Beyond the blue fields. Oh you wisdom, you’re dead in the water when I wandered miles along the Zodiac. Roamed around and ‘round like a maniac. Oh you wisdom, you’re dead in the water. When the storm comes in we will rise again. I come home after days, all and nothing’s changed.

Red Wood 04:22
Red Wood Soon I’ll be awakened in the Red Wood. Long I stood, looked far as I could to where it glows in the black diamond face. Then I bowed my head and I faced the truth. Oh and it grew the feeling of ruth. Ages gone by and few with regard, people shot arrows in our world’s heart. I stand in the sore of the wood surrounded by fallen feathers and leaves. I think that we all, we all misunderstood what is affection and human beliefs. Victory and crowns, they kept ‘em cold. That hasn’t changed: human’s seeking of gold. And force is used on behalf of our faith. Two roads, the one that is trodden by careless greed and the one to compassion and good deeds. See the nature’s grace by looking in the black diamond face. I stand in the sore of the wood surrounded by fallen feathers and leaves. I think that we all, we all misunderstood what is affection and human beliefs.

Mayflies 05:34
Mayflies Time bells all along, bustling without ceasing, in a world of mayflies, in a world of mayflies. Behind every hill infinity is widening, in a world of bordering, in a world of bordering. It’s frightening. Thousand colors are painting. Diversity ‘s not hiding. In a world of tunneling, in a world of tunneling. Oh, the earth is so gracious, she is so spacious, in a world of narrow minds, in a world of narrow minds. You see, something’s up here. And you know, love’s around here. But in a world of craving hate, humans discriminate. And in a world of craving fear, mankind ended up here. Songbird is flying high, while weeping bitter tears. Watching us on our planet, singing about our bad affairs: “Oh, the earth is gracious, she is spacious. Oh, you people still feel constricted. Oh, the human race claims every space. No, no! Today still turning, tomorrow ends.”

Unspoken 03:56
Unspoken My sight’s broken. You turned around. All we had remains forgotten. When you walked out. I feel lost on this break-away floe. Nobody got off this endless ride. I tried to hold on. Faded pages, faded dreams. I’m on my knees. Stranger’s look into my eyes. You mirror face don’t tell me lies.
