Perish the pain
I was impoverished
Those ties that wind
And stared into open lanes
Stared into long long nights
Howling and still
West of the Eastern Cove
Carving the wind
Dawn of your eyes
Dust off your smile
When you say "Us"
You make me trust
I will never keep you from an open door
I know, you know
That's how much I feel in everything you are
You know, I know
Hot as the day
When we sat on stones
Watching the fish, run
Under our feet, and flow
And dove from the rocks
Scraping my knees and toes
And blood, with me, rose
Slow from the sea
And you were waiting for me
Waiting for me
Waiting for me
Waiting for me
You were waiting for me
It's just how much
When you say "Us"
You don't know just how much
You make me trust
I will never keep you from an open door
I know, you know
That's how much I feel in everything you are
I know, I know
I will never keep you from an open door
I know, you know
I will never keep you from just who you are
I know, I know

Future Islands are great , RP has been my mainstay listen to for years now and I have bought endless albums from bands I never would have heard of elsewhere, the Amazon CD button is a bit too easy to hit ......... , Thanks Bill and Rebecca for keeping us all enlightened to a wide world of great music
Regards
Bill
I hear Icehouse's Hey little girl

Re:Samuel Herring’s dancing; anyone remember Joe Cocker? Giving in to the feeling always looks alittle strange.


Watched "Let's Spend The Night Together" because Charlie Watts just passed. Mick is pretty spastic and jerky in his "dancing", so I don't think Samuel or Joe are alone in this.

Damn, didn't know Future Islands had a new album. Might have to grab it.

Peter has a seeming immunity to its pain and shares with us.
 

Uhhh... I agree.

Regardless, this does not change the fact that in Australia there are 48 million kangaroos and in Uruguay there are 3,457,380 inhabitants. So if the kangaroos decide to invade Uruguay, each Uruguayan will have to fight 14 kangaroos.

I just wanted to mention Samuel Herring's bizarre on-stage dancing.

Yeah- i'm that guy...

To correct your math, 10 plays in 30 days = once every 3 days, not at least once per day. 

We occasionally play new releases that often, though not for very long. 
 
Keep on spinnin BillG, we're all listening and trusting the one who provides the soundtrack to our lives
small doses = good
large doses = not good
Happy Christmas everyone, Happy holidays for all the other religions too..I love this track and it is the first time I heard it!

Thank you to Radio Paradise for your "eloquence" in musical choices, you have helped to make my year bearable!
Future Islands have such a distinct sound, I immediately know its them and I'm drawn to the voice on every single track of theirs.   Great band I hope to catch on the live circuit someday.

Long live RP :)

 Comment in wrong thread?

This went on first listen to a 7 ... read the comments, watched their live performance on Colbert and bumped straight up to a 9! The emotions in delivering that song gave me goosebumps!
Thanks Bill for heads-up on new album from these legends discovered on RP!
Live on Colbert

That's a tad too much.
Just like War on Drugs, it's every day, at least once a day. Sounds more like a prescription  than a DJ set to me

Is that Dieter from Sprockets on lead vocals?
A good new album, yet not so good as the two previous works.
Foots tapping...9/10 from down under

Likewise!
Only the second time I hear this song (last time was on Colbert) but the emotions are as real as they can get. For a band that is labeled as 'synthpop'!

Delightful artists, delightful musical escapade (as in: I sure as hell wished I could be as honest and open in public as these guys during performance). 7 to kick it off. 
New Future Islands

💓
Yay! New Future Islands! Another great band that RP helped me to find. LLRP.
A 7 for the forthright delivery and pleasant tune
Open with a 6 from South Billyburg in bootiful Brooklyn. Nice tune!
This guy is so earnest.
