PhilintheSpaces New music from Cat Hall / Dissonance.

It will make you wanna move. I cannot listen without groovin’ some body part. This is very crisp dance sound. I love to be able to sing along with something I want to dance to. The vocal hooks will reel you in. Very easy to disappear into this album (EP). Cat really lives up to her reputation with me. Always quality. Always progressive with a big hint of nostalgia mixed really well with originality. The influences of Information Society and Go Fight are present (due to their contributions to the work) but they do not overtake Cat’s work but only accent her vocal prowess and creative electronic work. This is the next album you’ll be singing at the top of your lungs driving down Main Street while the drivers around you avoid you because they don’t know how to have that much fun by themselves. Favorite track: Murder of Love.

Track Name: Break Myself
how many times must you and i revisit this
how many ways do i try, but cannot dismiss
you break yourself and i pick up the pieces
tearing yourself apart, division never ceases
i want to break myself on you
and could you ever think how it feels to be
and could you ever know what it means to me
and when you're breaking apart, it appeals to me
because the feeling is real
you close yourself and you lock it all away from me
but i know that it exists, and it must be set free
i see you bleed and i pour myself all over you
to stem the flow of what i know must not be true
i want to break myself on you
and could you ever think how it feels to be
and could you ever know what it means to me
and when you're breaking apart, it appeals to me
because the feeling is real
i want to break myself on you
Track Name: Poison Kiss
tearing rhythm in my soul
without your love i am unwhole
i'm torn apart, i am undone
i'm in your heart, my holy one
i reach to touch, you coil to strike
my enemy and love, alike
the slicing pain, the wounds that bleed
return again so i can feed on you
stay clear
never come near
out of your sphere
keep your toxin out of here
but i want the kiss
the poison kiss
i want the pain
that poison bliss
pleasure and pain, a lover's game
i wait for you to call my name
so you can bite and strike at me
in my poison cage where i long to be
seductive game, so sweet and cruel
destroying me, corroding you
a darkening path into the abyss
guided by our toxic kiss
Track Name: Murder of Love
i- i've been a victim of your love, like many before
so many before
you- you strangled me with all your charms
i yearn for more
i'm yearning for more
i'm charging you with murder
plead for mercy
you- you've been convicted by a kiss
you share too much
you share too much
i- i was a witness of your crime
now i'm the judge
i am the judge
i'm charging you with murder
plead for mercy
i'm charging you with murder
the fire of love's dying down
but in the face of the verdict, i'm feeling all jealousy drown
plead for mercy
Track Name: Taste
i can taste your voice in my mouth
the very sound becomes my breath
i'm compelled to listen to you
dissonance, resonance
i can taste your voice in my mouth
like a drug inside my veins
i can feel your hands upon me
i can have no self-restraint
tears me down and leaves me bleeding
but you know that i enjoy the feeling
addicted to the very sound
i taste your voice inside my mouth
i taste your voice
i want some more
i can taste your voice in my mouth
feel it flow upon my skin
i can see your lips are moving
and i want your taste again
tears me down and leaves me bleeding
but you know that i enjoy the feeling
addicted to the very sound
i taste your voice inside my mouth
i taste your voice
Track Name: Drive
foot is on the pedal
pedal's on the floor
grip as hard as metal
sound is only roar
faster to escape it
fool to think you can
better to embrace it
as if it were the plan
driving into nowhere
driving through the night
drive because you're driven
till you feel alright
mind is racing faster
losing all control
distance is perspective
perspective is the goal
driving into nowhere
driving through the night
drive because you're driven
till you feel alright
Track Name: Starstuff
we are made of different stars
none the less the stars we are
different and still the same
illuminated flame
all we are is everything
all we are is everything
we are the sun
we are the moon
we will never die
starstuff
i can see you burning bright
burning, burning in the night
stardust we are born today
everlasting way
brilliant light filled with desire
incandescent burning fire
living with a soul to burn
and burn and burn and burn
all we are is everything
all we are is everything
we are the sun
we are the moon
we will never die
starstuff
pull your light down from the sky
