Matthew Organ Since buying this album a month ago most of its tracks have found its way to my top 50 most played songs on itunes. Their best album to date. Buy it and play it loud. Favorite track: Something Outnumbered.

Brian Todd@www.Lummoxi.com Being that this is my first purchase on Bandcamp, I am proud to find this fine discovery from Ireland known as Windings. Their album is entitled "I Am Not The Crow".

Windings is one of those rarities in 2012 that has a distinctive sound, unlike other typical bands. "Sun In My Bones", the first track from the album, is my personal favorite. The best part about Windings is that they don't try too hard, but what they do here they do it well, and is still uniquely original. A gem!

Some things i won't allow myself, and if not me, then nobody else. I think it's reasonable. Things I see when i close my eyes, people singing about a past i can't recognise and it leaves me cold. Laid out in the dark believing there's sun in my bones Could be alone before long continuing this line of scheming surely is wrong Could be alone before long

I'm told things once were different but i've been here all of my life and nothing ever really changed maybe i'm looking through the wrong eyes they could a light under here they could light a fire but i'd burn if i could just stay by your side There's not much hope of changing and this place is becoming me So keep all the good stuff to yourself and hope all your hopes so secretly

All these moments seem like yesterdays and yesterday's long gone shit got real, it got legitimate the way to do things turned out wrong But nobody's taken over no-one would want to anyhow Left with a broken bunch of little things, of little worth, for someone else to piece together Breathe in, Slow Down, Sleep in, but they won't wait for us all that long Breathe in, Slow Down, Sleep in, but they won't wait for us, and they're gone Free from Safe House, Cave, and Comfort Zone, with no objections anyhow knowing there's no more room for these things and all the time, the time was now. Felt the worth in simple pleasures, things will never, ever feel so good again Free from meaning, and from circumstance, and with no equal Without the power there's no pleasure

Something inside says to celebrate. Something else inside says to keep right away, these aren't your friends. Let me in, I'm already a member Let me in I said, I am a member, and I've paid my dues. So now I'm back in school again, but strictly in a metaphorical sense. If I had roots, I'd go back to them.

Stole the list of an honest man, don't want to write my own, Now things are getting done. 2000 miles are beautiful, you'd best take care of yourself, turn you over to the next. I'll sing too loud on this lullaby, while you try and rest, ringing silence, interference Stole the list of an honest man, don't want to write my own, Now things are getting done. Lost my way things come too easy

I took a job from a woman recently widowed Times are tough, and I'm not proud, almost a broken man from everything I'm owed. I thought and thought, but not too hard, thought maybe I'd just lost my way. But when I stopped and looked around, I saw everything's just the same as yesterday. Blinded by sound I'll probably head home I went to the job, I met the widow, I told her this wasn't to be my livelihood She said "Then maybe you should stop" But I couldn't, so I just said "Yeah, well, maybe I should" "And did you finish that promise?" "I did, yeah, i finished years ago" "And here you are now, still with me" "yeah, I know" Blinded by sound I'll probably head home I've hated most things at least once So maybe now's the time for some fresh devilry. But thoughts of waxy hands and greasy paws means today's a day that i could just keep walking. I threw some stones inside my home, I couldn't hit a thing of consequence, Cos all here's in need of some repair, but it works if you know how to use it. Blinded by sound I'll probably head home

On a bridge across a valley, in the dark and dead of night. I'm stuck in the middle, and both ends are alight. I guess I'm having a hard time. Following roads, weakened, mile long, broken, collapsed, to towns of carcassed concrete caverns, where it looks like nothing has ever happened. But behind broken windows and boarded doors, In the gutters, from beneath misplaced manhole covers, the brightest light did shine.
