Michael Reilly Aidan Knight's indie folk sound is one that quietly grabs your attention and fills your heart. These three tracks are gently paced with moments of dramatic exuberance – quality seeping through their friendly pores. Favorite track: Lambics.

Trenton Gartke Aidan uses a sense of space in his songs to flesh out character, tone and mood, like how a good wine is aerated or a quality coffee yields crema; this ep is easily compared to the lambic of which he sings, "the sweetness of the beer, the lambic on my tongue." Favorite track: Friendly Fires.

Track Name: Friendly Fires
Writing a song for Merkadie Bernard
A close family friend, A stranger of sorts
How can you propose that we never talk that much?
A friendly shake of hands
We were talkers long before this ever present silence
We talked too long ago
Now it's quiet

Running down stairs with my feet on the couch
A play for your friends
Also, your folks
How can you propose that we never talk that much?
A friendly shake of hands
We were talkers long before this ever present silence
We talked too long ago
Now it's quiet

Friendly Fires
When we put out
The memories, are not as sweet
Friendly Fires
Track Name: Lambics
Hold me in your arms
And take another drink
Of the bottle of ale
Or the bottle of fame

The bitter flower pressed
Each and every Spring
My failures attest
To the blooming from the grave
And in defeating death, I sing

Pursing my lips
Around the bottle's seal
And looking within
My influence revealed

The sweetness of the beer
The lambic on my tongue
How can the throat reject
What the body wants?

See, see me when I go
Return, a new man
See, see yourself in me
And I, see myself in him

All my darkest parts, in the light
All my darkest parts, in the light
All my darkest parts, in the light
All my darkest parts, in the light
Track Name: Lands End
I have felt unuseful
Or morbidly awake
Snacking on the ends of youth
Biting into something new
Chewed the fat
And kept an eye on you

The stillness that we left behind
The stillness when I saw your eyes
I'm not sure just how I feel
The lyric gets too personal
The lyric is autobiographical
A definite time

For the time
For the time being
I am honestly
Smiling now
Hearing what you're singing
In earnesty

At Lands End
I know you felt the distance
But planned ahead
For these tearful kisses

At Lands End
Through the cedar clearing
You drove instead
Of offering your feelings
