This album has been a long time coming. I was originally in a project under the title "My Dearly Forgotten" where I collaborated with a few other vocalists. I decided to call it quits and focused more so on other aspects of my life while messing about with music on the side. I have always had the "Brando Albers" project on the side so there are quite a few other songs available free for download on my website. Its kind of a mess of inspiration though. Suddenly, I felt this sense of direction, so I pulled up my socks and set out to reinvent myself and release it free to the world. I started writing and recording near the end of 2008 and finally finished in November 2012. I am without a label so I had to pull it all together on my own. I believe this is my most honest album yet. I'm very proud of it and I hope you enjoy the free music. If you download the album as a whole instead of certain tracks you will receive 4 bonus songs that do not appear on the track listing!

"This s*it is good" - Caroline Byrne (Music Review Unsigned)

"There is emotion in every note and word, and between the synthesized bars of pain and sadness there is beauty and even joy. All these different components come together to create something unique and truly honest." - Rick Jamm (Jamsphere)

"This is one of those records that you put on while on that long bus ride ... Or when you just need to drop off the edge of the world for a little while." - NoBull Musik (GTA)

"Massively synth-centered independent silence disruptor ... The album does not let you down." - Noise Shaft (Music Blog)

"A creatively appealing endeavour." - Lauren Gribble (Listen Here Blog)

"A trippey, other-wordly mixture of indie creativity and synthesized style." - Miss Tainted (My One Sane Note Blog)

"Left alone with his synthesizer he explores elements of lo-fi psychedelia with a shoegaze specialty." - Indie Band Guru

Music is my way of communicating and understanding this world. Everything else seems like slurred speech that has fallen under a foreign tongue which I cannot understand.

Track Name: Nothing Left To Be Afraid Of
As the world is falling apart, turn and look the other way. He said... I've got nothing left to be afraid of. He looked back into his life, there is nothing left for him now to reclaim. He said... I've got nothing left to be afraid of.
Track Name: Lakes Of Burden
All of my old friends are gone they've all left. I know its my fault, why I feel lonely. Choices I once made taunt me while I sleep. I cant change things now, anxious all the time. Each day that I push through makes me feel like someone else. My face looks distorted, I don't feel that good today.
Frozen lakes of burden, hold tight. It's all that I've got. Hospital in my mind. I feel terminally ill.
Track Name: Procrastinate
Lurking in sweet. Filthy looming shade. Don't procrastinate. Don't make me wait. I've got it all. The taste of your skin. Drives me wild within. Don't procrastinate. Please don't make me wait. I've got it all.
Track Name: Wash Away Your Tears
I see you all alone. I've been there before and I feel your pain. We all hurt just the same. As the rain is coming down, wash away all your tears. We could be something. Just let me show you how.
Track Name: Chase Your Shadow
I saw you again you were walking away from me. I reached for your hand, you pulled away from me. Cant get away, no... I cant let you go, it is way to hard to do. For now I'll just run. Chase your shadow until I find you. Cant get away, no...
Track Name: Your Kisses Are Mine
I love you so much I could cry. Young lovers never asking why. My lover you can complete me. You are my heart my missing piece. Someday we'll create new life. You'll be my beautiful wife. I promise I will keep you safe. I'll love you till my dying day. Your kisses are mine.
Track Name: Fall In Love
You look so beautiful my love. The way you move is flawless art. I cant take my eyes off you. Babe just dance with me tonight. Fall in love. You really are my everything. I wanna shout, I wanna sing. I let you in, you stole my heart. without you I'd fall apart. Fall in love.
Track Name: Worked Out
I don't care what you think, I'll do It my way. I will not be your slave. It will all be ok, I wont waste away. I will not be your slave. I've got it worked out.
Slowly pushing down walls, I'm picking the lock. I will not be your slave. Headlights in my mirror digs at my skin. I will not be your slave. I've got it worked out.
Track Name: Fading Away
All the beauty in this world keeps my mind aligned. When the wind blows, stretch my arms out. Soon I will transform. Roots are growing, always aging. Take my soul away. First my skin splits. No tomorrow. I'll just drift on by. Fading away slowly into shade. Fade away.
Track Name: Grind (Bonus Track)
So loud all around everybody's dancing now. All the sweat all the skin all the sin we bathe within. See as shes grinding down shes all hot and so aroused. All the lights all the bass all the heat inside this space. Sexy eyes red lips watch you as you move those hips. All the drinks all the shots I lost count so long ago. Go down all aroused everybody's grinding now. All the sweat all the skin all the sin we within this place.
Track Name: My Angel (Bonus Track)
I see the shadows crawling forth. Whispering my name through the night.
You have come in tonight. They've come to tell me to give in. They will not get their way tonight. You pull me from my darker days, your smile brightens up my life. You hold me tight, kiss away the pain. You are my angel that's for sure. You have come in tonight.
Track Name: Honest (Bonus Track)
I recognize the look behind your eyes cus we go through this each and every day. Soon there will be a choice for change. So now is the time to open up our eyes. Get what I need to feel like I'm alive and worth more then this. Stay honest with myself. Grow more direct and focused on a path that I will follow until the day I die.
