ivanerik Having listened this only once so far, it certainly does sound very promising. You see, Echotest albums, for me, aren't something you fall in love with immediately - I find them challenging to the ears initially, in a good way! But then, with a little commitment and patience from the listener, Echotest's music eventually blooms into something wonderfully simple and beautiful, despite the underlying complexity, and you find yourself increasingly rewarded. So... let the process begin anew! Favorite track: No, You're Dead/The Gate of Light.

freecloud11 Echotest has carved out a unique niche rooted in the best of avant-garde prog rock from the 70s and 80s (King Crimson, Fripp, Eno, Bowie, ...) but moving in new directions. Daughter of Ocean pushes that farther. My favorite tracks rn are Dull Eyes/Light Head and No, You’re Dead/The Gate of Light. I LOVE the richness and complexity (and of course bass playing) on both tracks. They demand your full attention and if you give it you’re rewarded over and over.. ❤️❤️🙌

about

dedicated to those we cherish in every dimension—may the mirage of your spirit live eternally through this work, which has been made possible by your love.

the light of day
outlines a dark shape

she saw the rubble,
she saw the swollen sea...
ever shifting
ever knowing

tug of war with tightened eyes
conversations sunk
but not dead in the water

make a move
burn the books
everything must be lost
wiped out by the waves

dead and then
a life sentence of terror

Track Name: Tiger Races
lonely birthdays
and vivid cakes
the ghostly pictures
long forgotten but
endlessly moving
from place to place
from one house to another
one heart to the other
someone caught peeing
on a welcome mat
and a stone vase falling down
from the open sky
wiped out by the wave
she saw the rubble,
she saw the swollen sea

tug of war with tightened eyes
tiger races never won til now
ever shifting ever knowing ever
(tied up in knots
pushed down
the stairs backwards)

color averted
purple shoulders
regrets of last night's
stretches daunting
conversations sunk
but not dead in the water
some of us don't have yards
only crooked concrete
and late trees that
bowed down to the stress
of green-eyed neighbors
even though
they're superior
with their split ends
and their sickly stomachs
Track Name: Sleep
sail away
in a dream
feed the flickering hope

sail away
where you need
quiet, against the storm

i realise...
(she saw the rubble
she saw the swollen sea)

sail away
where you need
quiet, against the flood

sail away
dream away
try to make her sleep
Track Name: Ladies Legs at the Temperature Hotel
in the lobby, in your room
find the spirits, make them move
in due time tears will come
tears will come they will flow
and make time for the new
to come, to come

through a door shut
past the ghosts
the tick tock gets too slow
everything must be lost
wiped out by the waves
dead and then alive again

the light of day
outlines a dark shape
Track Name: Terror
wicked shadows
and dug holes
obstacles created
by your terror
by the terror

a brother cries
never lies
an alibi
for the scheming sister

an eye for terror
i am terror
see it when i look in the mirror
the mirror not a mirror

wicked shadows
and dug holes
obstacles created
by the terror
by your terror

a brother cries
never lies
an alibi
for the scheming sister

we are born innocent
only to be proven guilty
by a torn jury
life sentence of terror
Track Name: Cracked Taxis
find a stranger, make a move
tell this person what you'll do
how you'll burn all of the books
to make time for the new
