Ako Sunarko Such a gorgeous album. So gorgeous it nearly made me cry. And well, mom used to say I'm a tough guy. I really really wish that talented Mr Kinbom would receive a wider acknowledgement through 'Oil'. I mean c'mon world, don't you want to be beautiful? Now let me pick up my G-minor tuning guitar and summon the next Kinbom in me. Favorite track: Love And Luck.

Oil 04:04
In a deep and buried cave In a long forgotten place Oil is trickling down the wall It longs to be found Longs to be found Longs to be found Along this ancient trail All along this ancient trail I can see rows and rows And rows of men Looking for life Looking for love Looking for love.

Ought To 05:44
Memories dance around my head And turn empty walls Into screens Capturing me Ought to be so easy To just rise above this Ought to be so easy This is real This is now Slipping away Through my fingers and out of sight Vanishing dust Ought to feel so special But you just feel alone Ought to feel so special Powers are at work From a dark place Where part of each soul is made To rise above this Ought to be so easy Ought to be so easy Ought to be so easy It's you and me, sinking It's you and me, sinking And when the bottom comes Each of us Will have to find our own way back Up into the light.

Come Down 05:28
There is a fire It always burns And there's no way back To where we were Before the start Of this reckless trip Come down with me Come down with me Down at the bottom there's a chance To crystallise Desires, dreams To consolidate To turn around These twisted flames That have turned on us Come down with me Come down with me Down at the bottom there's a chance My friend I know Just how you feel Once again we've failed We were all heart Held on to hope Here we are again Come down with me Come down with me Come down with me - we'll see Around the next corner there's a chance.

Siena 04:01
6.
As I sit with this old machine I think of what their eyes could have seen I think of what they all could have been All the dreams of futures All the hopeful voices muted The visions wasted in the wind What joys and what disasters Lie between now and ever after? What is lurking round the bend? What will we leave behind To the next droves of humankind Of what was really on our minds?

Cotton Curve 03:02
8.
This is the same street And there's where you used to live That door was open And we still had things to give Walk in and out of love Walk in and out of love You had a cold sore And you were hiding your face Oh those beginnings Seem so very far from this place Walk in and out of luck Walk in and out of luck Walk in and out of love Walk in and out of love Stay inside of love And bow your head to luck Stay inside of love And bow your head to luck So many levels Of memories here for me Layers and layers Of flaking paint by the sea Walk in and out of luck Walk in and out of luck Walk in and out of love Walk in and out of love.

about

"The opening song sets the scene, and like the best records, it has a way of transporting the listener.
It becomes a space and time apart from the familiar,
a precious find in a barren landscape, tapped at the source."

(Hannah Moulette)
