On Naked Songs, Alice Tambourine Lover take us on the most bare and basic of trips. The Mazzy Star comparisons will try to detract from this sound, but the point would be missed. These nine tracks are organic and stripped to the bone, complete with a feminine perspective not often enjoyed by desert-combers (but fans of PJ Harvey, like myself, just may collapse in awe). I'm always up for a change of pace, and this disc was the perfect complement to a hazy, laid-back evening. Romanelli's guitar warbles and fuzzes out without coughing, while Albertazzi's vocal is demanding, confident, and hauntingly sexy. Angels Gone would air perfectly at my backyard campfire, Naked Lady will spook the lonely soul in a half-filled lounge, and Pills of Fire sends us to bed with stolen thoughts and restless tosses. Sometimes a woman's voice hits deeper (without necessarily hitting harder) than anything. Pair the gorgeous siren with cool stoner slides and you've got a recipe for some cool jams.

Track Name: Angels Gone
ANGELS GONE


STILL FIGHT, ON YOUR OWN
THE WEIRD THING, YET TO COME
SMILING CAT, GOT TO MOVE
FULL OF FAME, GETTING LOOSE

COLD DAYS, GOIN ON
BIG FACES, ON THE PHONE
STILL AROUND, HIDDEN TRUTH
FULL OF FAME, GETTING LOOSE

AND THE ANGELS GONE
‘CAUSE YOU’RE BLIND
WHEN THE DAY IS DONE
CRAZY LIGHTS, CRAZY LIGHTS

HEY BABY, TIME HAS COME
SHORT MOOVIES, PLAYED ALONE
RIDING FAST, AROUND THE MOON
FOOL OF FAME, GETTING LOOSE

AND THE ANGELS GONE
‘CAUSE YOU’RE BLIND
WHEN THE DAY IS DONE
CRAZY LIGHTS, CRAZY LIGHTS
WHEN THE DAY IS DONE
ON YOUR LIES
AND THE ANGELS GONE
‘CAUSE YOU’RE BLIND
Track Name: Candy Cars
CANDY CARS

TRY TO BE SOME SENSITIVE
ALL YOU GET ARE FALSE IDENTITIES
SOME PEOPLE WANT TO SING THIS SONG
GONNA CRY AND GET MONEY ON THE FLOOR

AND ALL THE BEAUTY DRESSES IN BLUE
HIDING IN FRONT OF YOU
THE CITY HIRES THE CHEATIN’ ONES
I KNOW YOU RIDE IN CANDY CARS

THAT SONG FADES AWAY

I NEED A LITTLE TIME TO FIND
ONE SONG THAT MAKES ME FLY
AND NOW BABY, RUN OUT OF MY HEAD
TAKE A RIDE WITH FLOWERS IN YOUR HANDS
WITH FLOWERS IN YOUR HANDS
TAKE A RIDE WITH FLOWERS IN YOUR HANDS

THAT SONG FADES AWAY
Track Name: Naked Lady
NAKED LADY

STILL TRY TO BE A WILD MAN
YOUR LADY IS GONE
FOR WHAT YOU DID, LIFE GOES ON
WHATEVER YOU HAVE DONE
AND YOUR POINT IS SLICK
A LITTLE RUSTY INSIDE
TAKE A SEAT IN HER BIG SPACE
YOU’LL SEE HER AFTER A WHILE

A LITTLE SIN GOES ON
SOMETIMES SHE LIVE IN A WHITE SHIP
HER PLACE TO WARM
SHE IS A SOFT, NAKED LADY

STILL TRY TO BE A WILD MAN
THROUGH THE HIDDEN SPYHOLE
ON THE TRAIN WITH HER SUITCASE
WITH HER MEANINGS GONE

A LITTLE SIN GOES ON
SOMETIMES SHE LIVE IN A WHITE SHIP
HER PLACE TO WARM
SHE IS A SOFT, NAKED LADY
Track Name: Track Of You
TRACK OF YOU

A LITTLE TRACK OF YOU BABY, FROM ABOVE
STRANGER ON THE WHEEL, THROUGH THE SUN
ON THE PAIL BLUE LAND, NO MORE SOUND
ON THE WHEEL, WHEEL, WITHOUT BOUNDS

FOR A LONG TIME, NO ONE WILL HEAR
FLY ON BY, THROUGH THE GREEN
I’LL TRY TO SAY, A LITTLE MORE
YOUR LOVE WAVES, ON AND ON

LIKE A REAL FAT DREAM, YOU’LL BE SOMEWHERE
RUN, RUN, RUN, BABY, BABY, BABY
CHECK A REAL LOUDER SOUND, GONNA GET YOU ALL
SO THE GAME GOES, ON AND ON

FOR A LONG TIME, NO ONE WILL HEAR
FLY ON BY, THROUGH THE GREEN
I’LL TRY TO SAY, A LITTLE MORE
YOUR LOVE WAVES, ON AND ON
Track Name: Shall I Walk Around
SHALL I WALK AROUND

SHALL I WALK AROUND
SHAL I WALK AROUND
HOW TO BE WRONG
LIPS ALL OVER ROSE

STEAL AWAY BABY
I’M RUNNING ON YOUR FIELD
SLIDING THROUGH THE CLOUDS
I’M GOING DOWN

TAKE ME IN YOUR BED
I OWN ALL YOU HAD
I MET YOU ACROSS THE SEA
WHERE THE RIVER FILL

STEAL AWAY BABY
I’M FLYIN THROUGH YOUR DREAMS
SLIDING THROUGH THE CLOUDS
I’M GOING DOWN

STICK AROUND AND SEEK ME BABY
IN MY MOUTH
SHALL WE HAVE THE POWER TO SEED
IN THE GROUND
HOLD ME BABY
I’M GONNA RAISE MY HANDS
STICK AROUND I’LL COME BABY
IN YOUR WISHING WELL
Track Name: Let Desires Come
LET DESIRES COME

TALK WITH YOUR PRAYER, COMING BACK
ROLLING FREE. ROUND, ROUND THE BEND
BYE BYE BABY, BYE BABY BYE

SEARCHING AND FADING YOUR CREATION
SPINNING ROUND THE SITUATION
BYE BYE BABY, BYE BABY BYE

LET DESIRES COME
LET DESIRES COME
LET DESIRES COME
THE STARS ABOVE

FOR DOWN BELOW
THEY NEVER GROW
LET DESIRES COME
THE STARS ABOVE

SITTING ON FIRE, WHILE YOU PRAY
DON’T FOOL AROUND, ON YOUR WAY
BYE BYE BABY, BYE BABY BYE

LET DESIRES COME
LET DESIRES COME
LET DESIRES COME
FROM THE STARS ABOVE

FOR DOWN BELOW
THEY NEVER GROW
LET DESIRES COME
FROM THE STARS ABOVE

AND THE NIGHT HAS BEGUN
OUR SECOND LIFE
PLEASE HEED THE CALL, BABY
BY MY SIDE

I KNOW YOU
AND I CARE TOO
WHAT WE HAVE BECOME
HUNGRY THIEVES

BENEATH THE FLOORS
OVER YOU
TILL TIME HAS FLOWN
I WILL SING FOR YOU
TO YOUR PLACE IN THE CLOUDS
OUT OF TIME
COME COME COME COME BABY
BY MY SIDE

I KNOW YOU
AND I CARE TOO
WHAT WE HAVE BECOME
HUNGRY THIEVES

LET THE WAVE COME
HEED THE CALL
WHAT WE HAVE BECOME
HUNGRY THIEVES

THROUGH A CRACK IN THE PAST
AND NOW DRIP YOUR WINE
I HOPE YOU’RE FINE, FOR ALL THE TIME

I DON’T GIVE A DAMN
SKY MADE OF GLASS
STARE AT THE SUN
PICKING UP THE TRASH

THE SUN EXPLODED WITH A MIGHTY CRASH
THROUGH A CRACK IN THE PAST
AND NOW DRIP YOUR WINE
I HOPE YOU’RE FINE, FOR ALL THE TIME

PICKING UP THE TRASH
SKY MADE OF GLASS

EXPLODED WITH A MIGHTY CRASH

I DON’T GIVE A DAMN
SKY MADE OF GLASS
STARE AT THE SUN
TILL MY EYES BURN
