about

GRL MTN has come together once again to release our annual home grown music compilation. AAural II is a compelling mix of unreleased material from bands hailing from the midwestern locale of Ann Arbor, Michigan. In the year since the last release not only have our ranks grown but so have our styles and sonics diversified and matured. The album cascades through nouveau electronic, Detroit influenced house, ambient swelling spirituals, orchestral/electronic pieces and noise speckled rock. In fact the comp is so wide ranging and so good on the ol' eardrums that it is quite a surprise that it all comes from one small town half an hour outside of Detroit.

Track Name: d'lusions - s_mm_r_f_r_v_r
if it's there,
it's a habit.
if it's you,
i would have it.
somewhere down
there's the same old street.
you think i'd sink beneath.

i used to take the easy way
back to your place.
i used to take the easy way,
okay?

so i buy manufactured hope
until i run out of illegal dope.
and they prescribe me something to cope;
gimme pain, girl, i need to know.

i used to take the easy way
back to your place.
i used to take the easy way
but it's not the same.


no i won't swallow the seed of the seer/
pretend that i can see clear.
give me the wheel, and i'll steer
sell it to me and i'll disappear.
Track Name: Our Brother The Native - Unquieted
It's hard to know what to make of each day
So I take a moment to create the loudest sound that I can make
And I want to know what we all would sound like at once
If we did so would we be a thunderous roar
Screaming out, "What is this place for?"
Death won't silence me

Put all our hands in
We are unlasting
We won't be quieted
and we are not asking

I fear I've felt them pass through me
Millions upon millions of tiny voices fading ever so quickly
Track Name: Known Moons - The Structures の 様 Child
The structures の 様 child.

In the blood, in the ghost winds blow
In the rank, in the silent rest
In the saint and the sickness, love.
I do not,
I do not want it.

And what was your intent?
Did you find what you had left?

In the stars, in the blood we know
In our hearts, in a golden dream
In the car, in the city wall
We will not be found.

In light upon the floor,
did we find this world in love?
