drew_dattilo A very fresh listen for me. “Years Later” has a variety of appealing factors to it, from the punchy guitar riffs, to the groovy synth bass lines all over with really nice production. Can’t wait to hear more from Let Em Riot! Favorite track: Ready to Start.

DistantMemories Music is one of the closest things we have in our world to real magic, once you hear it the melody and rhythm take over, and bring you somewhere deep in your mind. The song triggers an explosion of feelings, emotions, and thoughts at the same time leading straight to the Heart. Music makes that powerful connection to the soul, if done correctly, it stays connected. That’s what happened when I heard “Not Enough” for the first time. Let Em Riot has the sound to last. Such a fantastic album. Favorite track: Not Enough.

I think I’m ready, ready to start tonight. Gonna make believe we made it all right. Our hearts are heavy, heavy with the world tonight. I think I’m ready, ready to start. I don’t wanna miss a thing tonight. I’ve been a stranger to the feeling. I don’t wanna lose the words again. I’m getting closer to a meaning. Always too late here. Always too late. I don’t wanna take her home tonight. A single look, a culmination. There’s a fortune in a memory. Yeah, there’s a lifetime in emotion. Standing on the ground, she’s a lovely girl. Wants to settle down. She’s a lovely girl.
2.
Getaway 03:50
Something like a runaway. Meet at your window. One by one the lights go out like every time before. And we leave, so we can breathe - we can be alone. Only one look to make the heartbreak. What if we could drive all night? Know what it is to be the only ones out. What if we had one more moment? What if we had one more try? Everything now set in motion. This could be our getaway. We never needed much. True Faith on the radio. Waiting for someone to bring the morning sun. This could be our getaway.
3.
Getting tire all the time. Passion never lasts - I tell myself. I’ve got nowhere else to be. Keep me becoming someone else. There’s a sign above the window: “Out of Business - Everything must go”. You could be my something real. Save me, won’t you just save me? The way you look-so absolute. When you call my name-so meaningful. Leave it all behind with you and enjoy the comfort in the ritual. I could keep searching for a reason but I fear I’m just wasting time.
4.
Not Enough 04:20
Secrets hidden away in a private drawer. And all the boys want to fall in love with the girl next door. Where’d you like to go tonight? It’s all the same. Have you home at a decent time. It’s all the same. A bad idea and a good disguise - she’s danger lust. Far away she misbehaves when it’s not enough. Through the window no one sees, she’s home again. Wash away all her dirty deeds, she’s home again. Even if it lasts forever, it’s not enough. Love was only made for pleasure. It’s not enough. All the way on the high street, it’s a wild life. She’s taking what she needs from me tonight. Out on the hight street I got a bad idea.
5.
What For 03:58
Doesn’t matter what it should have been. I’ve gotten used to the way it is. (We’re a) long way from the innocence. A little further we could start again. Everything is moving slow. In between your stop and go. I’m giving you the evidence you need. A million reasons I could never leave. Moving me along. I’m just running to the rhythm. Try to keep us going on, all that I’ve done. I just want a little. Do I need to ask why? Momentary distraction. And it should have been us - asking too much human interaction. I don’t think I’ll ever learn. You get away with it everytime. Search for someone just to feel the same. Break and make up - do it all again. Doesn’t matter what I do here. Relapse in a swift affair. I hear you call me the convenient one - never out of reach, always out of touch. What for? I keep coming back. Tell me what for? We’re still making plans. Maybe there’s more. Too late for that now.
6.
Please 04:00
Tonight, tell me what our future’s like. What it feels like to be alive. Who we are on the other side. Never be. The light and the look is all by design. We get lost in it everytime. Promise someone a better life. Never be. Please - why’s it so hard to choose? Just a sure thing and all that you have to lose. Make the safe bet. Just the way it is. All that you get. Don’t be so sure of it. The dream, things are never what they seem. Never knew they could be so mean. Something better than in between. Never be.
7.
Your room, play your favorite song. Fall asleep with the record on. How it ends, I’ll think about it. Your bed - where my memories lie. Every word is a reason why it ends. I’ll think about it. Heaven knows that I’ll think about it. We could never be the ones we want. This will never be the life we dreamt about. Nothing here for us to figure out. No, it’s not alright. Dance with me under the pale moonlight. Last forever even if it’s just tonight. We grow out of everything in time. No, it’s not alright. Underneath, monsters wait. Chase us down as we come of age. Then it’s gone. Nothing to do about it. Daybreak, tomorrow comes. Least we know we did nothing wrong. How it goes. I’ll think about it.
8.
Caribou 03:57
California, never like it use to be. Los Angeles slowly fades into the sea. There’s a highway, leave behind everything. But there’s so much more worth remembering. Used to be the nights in the city. Used to be the days in the sun. Now we just pretend cause it’s easy. Rather than admit that it’s gone. Tell no one where we laid our memories. We’re still out living in our history. Make it back to the west coast. I’ll know where to find you. Maybe we could start again. Tell me that you want to.
9.
Black Ink 05:14
On our backpack leather black ink, we drew our idols. By the lockers down hall, we chose our side. On our book - folded covers black ink, we wrote down meaning. Never thought that we’d be the ones to stand in line. And the girl in the Def Leppard shirt said she liked me better. Wrote it down in black on the back of a photograph. Pulled me closer. Held on to the years. Never over, still disappears. Pulled me closer. Holding on to the day. Never really over - black ink as it fades. On the soles of our shoes black ink, the latest fashion. We were outside running where the streets would never end. You know the sun never set on the kids in California. And the mixtape was all that needed to be said. We answered to no one. Never tired. Bleached by the sun. Take me back tonight. Waited for no one. True desire. Lost but we won. Take me back tonight.
10.
Say 04:37
You’ve been up for hours. Given up on sleeping. Memories, left behind. When the watch gets slow and it just keeps slowing time can be unkind. Don’t make this so. All of this for nothing cause you’ll feel better. Say what you need to say instead of lying awake waiting for something. Honestly, you’ll be alright just hold. Say what you need to say. Tell me you hate this, just say something. Honestly, you’ll be alright just hold on. Used to laugh it off and just look the other way. Let it all fade behind. Now you’re breaking up and your eyes they give away all the things inside.
