about

A year has passed since the first compilation in this series was released. This second volume features new artists, as well as contributions from some featured on volume one. From France to California, England to West Virginia, these bands were selected from around the world, because they express a vast range of sound, reflecting their influences. For me, this compilation represents creative freedom, artists breaking down the walls of traditional genres, and resisting the impediments of commercial publishing. As a DJ on WoodyRadio.com, I have been fortunate enough to feature many new independent artists, each with unique interpretations. Playing classic post-punk & alternative rock alongside this new generation highlights their influences and displays artistic evolution at work. Independent artists united together to produce something new - something post-alternative.

Track Name: Attasalina - Heart of the Beast
Knock three times at the temple gate
They told me what I was supposed to forget
The bell sounds, ringing in the wind
Telling me time that has come beginning and end

Oh oh Fire and the Wheel
They come to borrow and they come to steal
Oh oh The choice we make
We come to heaven and we come to pray

Gone have generations before
Legacies left, hated and adored
Knock three times the devil said
Or was it the angels singing “Go, forge ahead”

Oh oh Fire and the Wheel
They come to borrow and they come to steal
Oh oh The choice we make
We come to heaven and we come to pray

For good or ill, this life I have found
One brick in a pattern forever moving ‘round
For love, I seek, my heart remains open
Though I have born pain, will I always feel broken?

Oh oh Fire and the Wheel
They come to borrow and they come to steal
Oh oh The choice we make
We come to heaven and we come to pray

To this long slow trek through an unmapped land
I am hurriedly born, blank book in hand
Tracking its lessons, patient to be clear
My steps become careful, with each print I lay down one fear

Oh oh Fire and the Wheel
They come to borrow and they come to steal
Oh oh The choice we make
We come to heaven and we come to pray

Oh oh Fire and the Wheel
They come to borrow and they come to steal
Oh oh The choice we make
We come to heaven and we come to pray

Come to Pray
Track Name: Goalie - Tatanka
I think I hear a sound
Trampling the ground
Look at all those guns
Everybody run

I think I hear a sound
Trampling the ground
Look at all those guns
Everybody run

I run away

suddenly there's dust and smoke and chaos everywhere
They've got us in the open and they don't seem to care

They're cutting us in half
Who's gonna raise the calves
Don't they understand
Our kids can barely stand

And we all wonder why
As we look up at the sky
Laying all around
Across the bloody ground

I run away

You left us dying here
On this Trail of Tears
Rotting in the sun
I hope you had your fun

Let's see how long you last with me
No bullets at your side
Try to run. Try to hide
You know you're gonna die
Let's see how long you last with me
No bullets at your side
Try to run. Try to hide
You know you're gonna die

You took it all away. Why?

And what were the horses thinking?
Why didn't they try to help us?
