Indie Music Review of Mountain

Another fantastic review of Mountain in. So happy this album is connecting with fans and critics alike. Very proud that we also worked the production and made the calls on this one ourselves, bit of confidence there.
From Indie Music Review

“I would even go as far as to argue that these compositions seem much more thoughtful and tempered than their predecessors did, which tells me that The Cold Stares have matured substantially in the last couple of years. Their new record is a breakthrough moment for their craftsmanship and a sound that they’ve truly made their own, and as a blues fan myself I couldn’t be more pleased with its tremendously gratifying content.”

On my way down

On My Way Down

I heard a whisper on a rainy day
Come child and hear what I have to say…
I am the cause, I am the autumn moon
I bring the change that hangs around till June

Don’t follow me, on my way down
Old winding roads, full of thorns on the ground
Listen to the song the sweet piper plays
Just around the bend we will find the way

Mockingbird in a willow tree
Black hound standing right next to me
Summer breeze sings and calls my name
It’s too early for the seasons change

Don’t follow me, on my way down
Old winding roads, full of thorns on the ground
Listen to the song that the sweet piper plays
Just around the bend we will find the way

My brother lays in an open grave
Just past the brook on an winters’ day
Look at the trees how they bend and sway
Right past the moon is the light of day

Don’t follow me, on my way down
Old winding roads, full of thorns on the ground
Listen to the song that the sweet piper plays
Just around the bend we will find the way
