Nostro Dishevelled beauty, passionately painful with Barker's higher pitched and often strained vocals ever present; transporting the listener through his bitter sweet journeys.
"Cause I'm feeling so torn, I'm feeling so torn and
I can't be reborn, I can't be reborn,"
Typically poignant. Favorite track: Friend.

Travis Button Born is a true masterpiece, the entire album isn't far behind. Favorite track: Born.

wonderdog It's very much as if Mark Linkous (of Sparklehorse) was still around making beautiful music that stirs the heart. [sigh]

about

Recorded on 8-track between June and October 2014 at Hawk Moth Records HQ.

"The ever prolific Matty Barker emerges from the shed with a gorgeous new Water Music album. Serene space folk to soundtrack the contemplation of small things, of big things, of nothing at all. Tremendously uplifting and superbly written, as always." - BandcampHunter

Track Name: Born
I wish I was born
light years away
I'm coming home
only to scorn
all those dark living days
but I'm feeling so torn
I'm feeling so torn
and I'm feeling reborn
I'm feeling reborn

I look to the stars
to show me the way
I hide from the moon
moonlight turns me so grey
but I'm still feeling young
I'm feeling so young
and I just want to run
I just want to run

I wish I was born
back in the days
when freedom was young
and life was okay
'cause I'm feeling so torn
I'm feeling so torn
and I can't be reborn
I can't be reborn
Track Name: Doll
You're isolated
a complicated fool
still all the boys like you
you're over rated
sing slow sedated tunes
still all the boys like you
and you miss your daddy
and hope the sad ends soon

You're so pedantic
a sub-romantic tool
'cause all the boys like you
and you tell your lovers
to paint your covers blue
for all the boys like you

but it's so frustrating
'cause I'm a toy like you.
Track Name: Corpus Mundi
Hold me now
you were born free now
but you don't know
what that means

Hold me now
I've come through now
and they don't know
what we can be

Hold me now
they won't hold me down
hold me now
they can't hold me down
when they've sold
everything
they believe
Track Name: Somedays
There's one way
I've tried to deliver
but somedays
I just ain't together
and some days I shiver
some days

There's one day
I just can't remember
it's silent
as a cold, deep river
and some day I'll get her
in some way

There's one way
I've tried to deliver
but somedays
I just ain't too clever
and some days I shiver
some days
and some day I'll kill her
in some way
Track Name: Savage
One turn
to look at you
when you know
just what to do
a long time
facing down
to protect you
protect
one yearning look at you
when you had nothing to prove
the wrong time
to place it down
and reject you
reject you now

I wont' cry
if I can't feel love
I won't cry
if I can't feel love
Track Name: Friend
Bowed down in the pouring rain
bruised eyes that always look so true
cool wind say that I can change
depends if you still say I do
and have you ever, ever, ever been saved
by a friend who said that's what they'd do
well that's just like you

I shed light on another day
it's vile that they think I followed you
the deep end baby it's the same
cool friends who never wanted you
and will you ever, ever, ever change
then we'll pretend that is what we do
'cause I'm just like you.
Track Name: Wolf 424: Ummo
Once I was certain
all men were burdened
with love
a lot to say
but I'm fooling no one
with this paranoia
so come light it up

Once I was searching
for all of god's learning
and love
a lot to say
but you're fooling no one
with this paranoia
so come light it up
