Gavin Hellyer I've grown rather fond of the music of Diane Marie Kloba lately, and this collaboration with guitarist Paul Kent is a very fine record indeed. Her Dandelion Radio Session last month on Mark Whitby's show was a ripper as well. Favorite track: Fools Make Walls.

Track Name: Naked in the Storm
Looks like life is teaching us how to be strong.
Testing our skills and making us want to win.
Somehow how now I don’t feel alone though I know
I am certain nobody owes me,
I had to build this from within.

The weather changed, we acclimated
and threw away our useless plans.
We stand naked in the storm, unadorned.

We will star in the story and be articulate.
Write it how we see fit and we’ll edit it.
I think I am learning how to breath here and I wonder:

“Are you aware it’s rare to be alive? Do you know this life is a gift?”
I had to build this from within.

The weather changed, we acclimated
and threw away our useless plans.
We stand naked in the storm, unadorned.

They ought to play.

Track Name: Fools Make Walls
Memorized the note you wrote seven days ago.
I long to sing these words you need to now,
you’re leaning on my wall.

I find a way to ease my mind and all the time I keep my mind I sigh.
To worship the sound we hold the note,
we have to muffle all the BOOMS,
concentrate on this lifelong school.

Media talking about a wall and how everyones gonna fall.
Now I gotta BAIL instead I’m gonna WAIL on my guitar.
And if they want to play they can play with me
but I think I have to stay away from Media.

Disregard the deterents, run your show, run your show.
We are going to make a lot of noise and muffle all the BOOMS.

Media talking about a wall and how everyones gonna fall.
Now I gotta BAIL instead I’m gonna WAIL on my guitar.
And if they want to play they can play with me
but I think I have to stay away from Media.

I walked out onto my driveway and I was struck by a star.
I climbed up on the wall to see it.

Track Name: Tangible Impulse
Last I heard he bought a warehouse on the outskirts of town.
There he stored boxes of words, big words.

Gonna take the words, write them on a paper,
fold it up, keep it in my pocket.
And if the world ever gets my goat,
I will open up the note and read the words inside.

Moved away, oh hey! You have furniture.
You wanna play? You gotta say, you see a future.
Feel the pain, make a song, express the sound,
the situation will be heard.

Tangible, touchable.

I’d rather have one real look in the eye,
your arms around me in a warm embrace,
a brain engaged, conscious and awake.

Pull away from the screen.

How could I know if you are a robot.
