Gareth Some seriously great material on here; Bank Account, Won't Let You Down, & Run Like The Wind, sandwiched by good stuff that's sounds like its been much loved. Best release yet.

LJ Brubaker Equal parts sludgy and clean, funky and pop; this is an album that unfolds track by track into something compelling, sometimes silly, and overall very enjoyable. Mark Mills has a lot on offer here, and I'm digging it.

HEYROCKME This may be a tounge-in-cheek coctail of 1980s superstar masculinity. Blend in a healty dose of dancable and sprinkle some satire, politics and keen obeserations on top. What is not to love about Mark Mills' music?

Track Name: Colonial
Those white colonial programs, they're destroying.
Those white colonial programs, destroying.

I was born in a privileged home,
where everything was taken care of safe and warm,
and now I know my country always had it wrong,
cause they treated me like I'm special, something more, with those

White colonial programs, they're destroying,
Those white colonial programs, destroying.

Looking in the mirror knowing what I know,
I see the face of terror scooping kids from their homes,
And now I have a couple children of my own,
So the sight of my reflection is emotional, with those

White colonial programs, they're destroying,
Those white colonial programs, destroying.

Colonial, Colonial, Colonial, destroying...

We are out of line,
Cause the laws are racist,
the laws are genderized,
And we are far from fine,
Cause Canada is guilty of genocide!
We are out of line,
Cause the laws are racist,
the laws are genderized,
And we are far from fine,
Cause Canada is guilty of genocide!

Cause Canada is guilty of genocide!
Colonial, colonial,
Canada is guilty of genocide!

Systematic racism has got to go,
and the sense of entitlement that we're valued more,
and everyones ideas of how to progress,
need to shut the fuck up,
and listen to the voice of those oppressed by the

White colonial programs, they're destroying,
Those white colonial programs, destroying.
