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.

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)

Track Name: Oil
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.
Track Name: Ought To
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.
Track Name: Come Down
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.
Track Name: This Old Machine
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?
Track Name: Love And Luck
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.
