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.

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

Lambics 04:06
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

Lands End 03:00
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
