Bob iiah is one of the biggest surprises I had this year, playing some of the most soul crushing emotional music I've heard in quite a while. My stand out is Letter 86, which, to me, is an aural interpretation of a sweet nostalgic waltz on a lonely hill, at sunset, with no one else to watch. Favorite track: Letter 86.

Michael Reilly iiah have a sound formed from impassioned songs with highly affecting vocals; a combination that displays admirable mastery of how to create music that delivers thought, reflection and emotion. Enjoyably impressive. Favorite track: When I Fear You, All Else Is Where It Should Be.

Ed Sprake Utterly unusual and interesting post rock with male vocals, perfectly rounding things off. An enthralling and rewarding listen that will be played many, many times over. A fantastic journey. Favorite track: Dusk.

TONY ZAGORAIOS Sometimes there are no enough words to describe a unique album and sound. Ilah is such a great experience to feel and hear...One of my best albums for 2015. Favorite track: Gunnhild.

Mud This album has a quality to it that reminds me of something not quite remembered, perhaps its the haunting vocals or the rhythmic flow of the drums and guitars. All I know is I wish there was more of it. Favorite track: Dusk.

Track Name: Gunnhild
Mother, slowing down
Running to save my soul
Though I, I had known her power

Eyes that fade and glisten
Calling his name

You burnt my heart out with your tongue
I dreamt the south lands had but gone
These anchored hearts avowed
To find the lady out

Searching
For so long

Mother, sewn my lot
Whether asleep or lost
Atone, in fire and stone, to keep her

The path’s lost again
Winter caused our end
All sons must wait they say
This world may break, all sons must wait
This world may break, all sons must wait
Track Name: Letter 86
Lying here I know it’s just another day
Haunted, limping down the line
Carefully flood the fear of sublime normality
Still, it’s calling me home to you

Wide awake, finding ways to undermine
Every dam slowly caving in
Greet the dawn cocooned in your sure serenity
Nor brandished or gilt, just you
Track Name: Sarah
On the latter road, that I dare to cross
For the final peace I know you are
Hide in the long safe dark corner lots
Where my love’s lost

Form the right accord, where it’s safe to talk
Call her in the faith that I cannot show
She’s been the source of all of this hope, but
These thoughts fall short
Of taking off

Calling water
Rushing riverbanks
She’s lost
She’s lost
Open water
And falling deeper in
She’s lost
She’s lost
Let the water rage
She’s lost
She’s lost

Sun’s a steady fade when you sleep alone
Forced to find that peace I know you want
Hide in the long safe dark corner lots
Where my love’s lost

Find her in the fall, with her face alight
Judged to fit the form, that feels right
She’s been the voice of every song, but
Lie me on
Tired sheets worn

Calling water
Rushing riverbanks
She’s lost
She’s lost
Open water
And falling deeper in
She’s lost
She’s lost
Let the water rage
To stop the suffering
She’s lost


As we stand astride
The walls we came from
As the cold wind cries
Its song is days old
We can’t forget
That the light shines inwards
On the edge of dark
We’re still one step home
Spare a thought
For the lightless eyes
And shake your fist
At the walls we made
Track Name: Dusk
Awake, I walk alone, your voice
It calls me forth to you

Still it drags me down, that voice
We both know the darkest room

Hear me now I’m screaming out
Wading through these listless clouds
While only shallow cries are getting through

You say you’re there with words you’re near
But I can’t see your visage here
Awake, there’s no one here to hold on to

Let it go, its too much
Track Name: When I Fear You, All Else Is Where It Should Be
Her cold left slowly
Beached on through my confides bare
And loud inside, foregone all foregone
Longing for something I know

Burst apart the numb blind mind
Silence seems the one true break
So loud inside, of course the magic fails
Longing for something I know
