Islay Like the dawn of the morning, the light has finally arrived.
Like the pains I have experienced, they have all been left in the past.
Thank you ducktails for this song and this album, I saw light in it. Favorite track: Confession.

Corentin Durand Releasing his best album to put out there his very own message (Deal With It/Confession) was probably a very intense project. He did it with success. This is an important album, no matter how balearic and joyfull the music sounds like.

Noah Wilson Shimmering and sophisticated indie pop. Great attention to detail. I love that I live in a time when talented people can acquire the tools to record albums like this mostly on their own and of their own accord. This is what freedom sounds like... Favorite track: Answered in a Prayer.

Michael Feihstel Classic Ducktails. While most artists one follows over half a dozen releases lose their spark and excitement at some point, Matt Mondanile’s songwriting feels as timeless, magical and catchy as ever, and in this particular instance downright sun-drenched and mediterranean. Highly recommended. Favorite track: The Curtain's Moon.

graeble it seems like all the best albums recently are about getting over a break-up. whether it's a relationship or strictly geographical this album fits the bill. Favorite track: Blue Light.

Track Name: Answered in a Prayer
Can you show me where I can find some peace?

There’s a place where no one seems to care
just you wait angels soaring through the air
higher plain the truth answered in a prayer
just you wait it’s a miracle I swear

Will you show me a way to ease my pain ?

I don’t fit in this crazy world
Was never meant for me
Track Name: Watercolors
you’re my excuse to leave early
think more clearly in the morning
stuck in my dream
still stuck in my dream

watercolors hanging above the bed
I watch the colors turn blue to red
as sunlight seeps through the curtain
you’ll stay in bed i am certain

you’re my excuse to leave the party
my best thoughts come early morning
stuck in my dream
when i’m stuck in my dream

watercolors hanging above the bed
I watch the colors turn blue to red
as sunlight seeps through the curtain
you’ll stay in bed i am certain

back to Clara’s house
when you’ve had enough
drink up your cup
take one last puff

back to Clara’s house
when you’ve had enough
of the same old crowd
talking bout there stuff
Track Name: Deal with It
just came into some money
now my mind can rest
cause since I’ve been discarded
it’s been hard to find the bread

I left the USA
and I’m never going back
although I miss the food
the people there are mad

and I can deal with it now
it’s the same old story
they push you down
and you wait

and I won’t stop now
cause I’ve been knocked out
all my life
been pushed around

and I can deal with it now
it’s the same old story
they push you down
and you wait
Track Name: Blue Light
It’s hard to let go
of all that you know
when your character
has been taken from you

in the blue light of the evening
with you by the window
look into your bright eyes
and watch the sun

I hope you listen
to the voices inside
They know what your feeling
don’t push them away

in the blue light of the evening
with you by the window
look into your bright eyes
and watch the sun

in the blue light of the evening
forget all my troubles
feel the warmth beside me
and pray for a new day
Track Name: The Ocean Floor
there’s so many people who act like they know me well
and I’m here to let them know

like the ocean floor
the bottom of the sea
there’s layers underneath
you don’t know a thing

like the ocean floor
waves crash over me
with a monstrous roar
but deep beneath’s serene

there’s a hole in me
I try to fill it up
I can make this work
just will take some time
Track Name: Lip Service
paying lip service to a silhouette
making promises to ones you’ve never met

one day the things will turn around
some day we’ll turn it all around
Track Name: The Curtain's Moon
when you’re lonely
what do you think of
in the late hours of night
tell me why

seven am haven’t slept yet
tears in my eyes plead
oh please help me

waiting for lavender
an open door
to close my eyes
the curtain’s moon
it shines too soon
just let it fade into midnight

when you’re lonely
what do you think of
in the late hours of night

waiting for lavender
an open door
to close my eyes
the curtain’s moon
it shines too soon
just let it fade into midnight
Track Name: Confession
yeah we had a lovely day
and I’m glad you came along
but I’ve got something to say
and I hope you’re not scared off

a thing happened to me
and to some looks really bad
but I hope you understand
that I’ve left it in the past

confession
you never know what to expect
first impression
hopefully she has no regrets

of course I am to blame
but I also feel that this
was out of my control
and that I have been betrayed

but I never meant to make
anyone feel bad
on purpose or by mistake
so I hope you understand
Track Name: Bad Guy
Old friend
In dream I talk to you
get all my feelings
out to you

the mistakes
I made with you
but can’t you
look passed a few?

Don’t you know I care?
It’s not all dark down there
There’s no such thing as a
Bad guy

Old friend
how longs it been?
Years spent
living apart from him

Don’t you know I care?
It’s not all dark down there
There’s no such thing as a
Bad guy

Don’t you know by now?
It’s not all dark down there
There’s no such thing as a
Bad guy
