Ian Winter I was hooked from the first track. I've always appreciated the way silence plays in music, and when I read the description of this album on SMOD2's YouTube page, I thought to myself, "yeah, that's what I'm talking about!"
Playful, inviting, funky, and endlessly listenable, Quiet Men is already a favorite of mine. Well done, gents! Favorite track: Anytime.

Treaty 04:06
Lyrics: I just wanna talk to you, she said we need something to pray for they sing their sad songs and feed their mad dogs their days go by, then she arrives I haven’t told you, I was destruction all along I will not blame you before their heads go down, go down, go down, everybody down, everybody down, everybody goes I’ll never ever gonna let you down, we’re gonna trade in our souls it’s a treaty, this is the devil’s treaty, and I say yeah I just wanna talk with you, she said this is a brilliant plan, you have to stay on your game I haven’t told you, I feed on devastation I cannot blame you, we have to figure this out and then go down, everybody down, everybody down, everybody goes down on the ground, what goes around comes around I’ll never ever gonna let you down, we’re gonna trade in our souls it’s a treaty, this is a goddamn treaty it’s a treaty, it’s just a treaty, you have to go and break the treaty I’ll never ever gonna let you down, we’re gonna trade in our souls it’s just a treaty

when the book gets closed where will we be what will we do, and ask yourself, why should we meet you took my heart, I took your hand the loudest noise, you got it all but in the end a thousand reasons for rain, it’s perfect until we fail through the looking glass, the demons rest their case through the looking glass, the demons lose their face I know it’s all but chemistry, I still believe the bond is real the energy sent and received, we’ll pay for this and in the end, your tired eyes will need the light to see the lies, your panic room will fall apart we’ll rule the night a thousand reasons for the rain, it’s perfect, perfect till we fail through the looking glass, the demons rest their case through the looking glass, the demons lose their face their face a thousand reasons for rain, it’s perfect until we fail a thousand reasons for rain, it’s perfect, it’s perfect

Hot Air 03:00
the nearest light is still too dark to burn my eyes for good the crowded scene keeps blocking me from entering this place hot air will set this house on fire what is the purpose of this they say you’re driving down the wire it might be hit or miss close to the sun, you could at least look back to me and ask me why the panic has been gone there’s nothing to lose for us, I don’t wanna lift the cross keep the secrets to yourself but keep them close, keep them close hot air will set this house on fire what is the purpose of this they say you’re driving down the wire it might be hit or miss fun, great, joy, friends, hugs, love, fuck, self keep it simple hold your horses hot air will set this house on fire what is the purpose of this they say you’re driving down the wire it might be hit or miss

we might as well dance and cry and dream and change or we can put it in a box and lie and cheat and wait make a wish or get your shit together you name it, you name it gold or lead, it doesn’t really matter you name it, you name it we might as well dance and cry and dream and change or we can put it in a box and lie and cheat and wait call your future self a storyteller you name it, you name it fake your death and write yourself a letter your name it, you name it we might as well dance and cry and dream and change or we can put it in a box and lie and cheat and wait we are no saints we will have sinned we’ll dance and cry and dream and change burn that box and live and dream and change

Anytime 04:58
before the silence tears us apart, I disappear this hope is everything I have got for you let go and cast off your disguise so I can find you anytime all I ever leave is the dark room where I used to lay and rest my soul useless melodies echo through my future untold, still they’re on hold let go and cast off your disguise so I can find you anytime the ink is dry, sleepless nights, melodies intertwine, your fear is my disguise the tears are dry, dreamless nights, holding on, no need to hide we’ll find each other anytime let go and cast off your disguise so I can find you anytime

you think there’s nothing left to say and all the words are gone and spent in other versions of this lie we know we’re wrong now the fix is in, the bet is lost hide in plain sight, hide in plain sight and all the promises just fade out there is no light at the end of the tunnel there is no hope at the end of the street see, unbuilt bridges cannot burn down and crumble but somehow we are in the middle of it we hit the ceiling and missed the call of broken dreams but all the seats were taken anyway, anyway now the fix is in, the bet is lost hide in plain sight, hide in plain sight and all the promises just fade out there is no light at the end of the tunnel there is no hope at the end of the street see, unbuilt bridges cannot burn down and crumble but somehow we are in the middle of it let’s be strangers every single time and hold on to this moment for a while in all the versions of this lie we know we’re wrong there is no light at the end of the tunnel there is no hope at the end of the street see, unbuilt bridges cannot burn down and crumble but somehow we are in the middle of it we were no strangers at all that was the biggest lie we were no strangers at all that was the biggest lie

Poltergeist 03:46
we’ve never had the chance to talk about it, I guess, we never will you come into my house, turn off the lights and hand me the pill I throw in a couple of good days, you throw in a couple of bad the feather doesn’t move an inch, I guess what’s said is said fever, it’s a fever dream believer, I’m the believer the hunger is stuck inside my bones my tongue is dry, I see your smile in the moment of silence, in the line of defense all the bits and pieces come together and make sense fever, it’s a fever dream, I’m the receiver I can’t believe you pull me in receiver, I won’t accept you pull me in honey, all your sins are meaningless I’m the saint and you’re the fool breaking bones and trading souls since 1968 you’re no exception from the rule fever dream, we’re in a fever dream we’re all believers in this dream, we’re all receivers in the fever dream

you don’t have to worry about a thing, we will try and keep you safe you don’t need to be afraid of anything, just keep moving on moving you don’t need to take a stand for anything just say whatever comes into your mind desperate times call for desperate measures so stay in line, stay in line I serve the highest bidder and false gods flood our promise land I serve the highest bidder and false gods flood our promise land draw me a picture, tell me what you see this time it’s different, let’s hang them from a tree an eye for an eye and a cheek for a cheek life is but a dream and now that they stand there and now that they listen ‘cause this is our game and this time they’ll miss it nothing to live for but nothing to die for maybe we are born on the same day I serve the highest bidder and false gods flood our promise land I serve the highest bidder and false gods flood our promise land I serve the highest bidder and false gods flood our promise land you don’t have to take a stand, you don’t have to worry about a thing draw me a picture, tell me what you see this time it’s different, let’s hang them from a tree an eye for an eye and a cheek for a cheek life is but a dream I serve the highest bidder

Buried Alive 03:42
the dice are rolling and we’re running out of luck our eyes wide open though we’re suffering under suffering this attack I hear you screaming, you have the key you’ve had it all the time we break the ceiling and leave this place leave all the pain behind there was a boy, he never said no he was buried alive and never grew old there was a girl, she never said yes shaken by fear, her heart was a mess I hear you screaming, you have the key you’ve had it all the time we break the ceiling and leave this place leave all the pain behind we’re out of control and no one’s in charge, no wrong paths at all we’re out of control but we are in charge, no wrong paths at all ‘cause standstill is death I hear the voice behind my back we are running out of time there once was a boy, he never said yes he was buried alive there once was a girl, she never said no her heart’s still a mess

Mirrors 03:48
when a stone breaks the window glass I will lead you, I will guide you lend my hand so you won’t cut yourself keep in mind this room is still alive and warm inside but all the pictures are gone defend the lines pretend you’re on your own, knee deep in the sand and the house is on fire open up or you will lose yourself in pain defend the lines pretend you are fine mirrors to distract the kings they fear us ‘cause they know the truth someone else with a different life with a purpose and that fire for this moment you are not yourself keep in mind this soul is still alive and cold inside all it’s power is gone defend the lines pretend you’re fine mirrors to distract the kings they fear us ‘cause they know the truth mirrors to distract the kings mirrors to distract the kings mirrors

about

Lausch Wien, Austria

The austrian trio LAUSCH delivers a postmodern
structure of
progressive- and alternative rock.
The bands impulsive and slowpumping
style is disarming and hijacks into a
world of enchanting and enthralling vocals. LAUSCH impress with their sense for powerful
rythms, catchy tunes and for dynamic reciprocity of noise and silence.
