Erik Kreffel Martin's really put the rock back into the duo in Amenia, Oh My Glad, This Is The Universe, Swansea and Theodora, plus a little Pink Floyd in Elude. Kilbey's sharing the vox with a backing choir on a few tracks, has a duet on Elude and is just dripping honey on Once. Rocking, moody, intimate, electronic…KK does it all well. Keep them coming! Favorite track: Elude.

Andrew Steed This is brilliant. I've bought all of The Church's, Steve Kilbey's and the Kilbey/Kennedy albums over the years and this ranks up there with the best of them. The whole album just clicked with me on the first play and it will be played many more times. It's also inspired me to belatedly subscribe to All India Radio where much listening pleasure awaits.

Amenia 04:28
Imperial power Shower me with sparks Im alone in my race for the dark The hours are not ours Towering overhead Im alone in my flowerbed Amenia Only one more to go Only one more to go Amenia Only one more to go Only one more to go Unseemly dreamer Beaming through the night Im alone and im alright The minutes are not limitless The sinners all have names Im alone at the start of the game Amenia Only one more to go Only one more to go

The sun in the room Illuminates the spoons and plates In the summer afternoon The time slipped away Providing sliding focus A locus in today And I wanna know where youre going And I wanna know where you will stay The fields and the trees They say listen man Now she can do as she please Wherever you are Wherever you’ve been You can always return here You know that’s a given The merciful blur Of distant memory To shelter me In its lovely curve The sound of her voice Exacting soft vengeance On the remnants of my little joys And I wanna know where youre staying And I wanna know where you will go The familiar haunts They say listen man Now she can do what she wants Whatever you are Whatever you say You can always return here On almost any day

Oh My Glad 04:05
when you first came around here mistakes abound here I wonder what you found here when you were first hanging around you said the ground was moving and hound me to improving when you last went around there what a sound there was like a divine force when you were last hanging about you shouted out to me flouted my authority oh my glad youre a bad girl it’s a mad world oh my glad you’ve been had girl the presence is experienced directly he works through other tongues men like me record these words perhaps they will mean something someday I emerge at your window in Dallas chasing your shadow in spring I melt with the snows in Andorra I felt one with everything oh my glad you’re a bad girl it’s a mad world oh my glad you’ve been had girl

Across the glistening blistering sea A first class aristocracy Right now they’re having tea And though I was banished long ago I still make reference in my show I know they probably will still keep missing me Breathe inside your bubble Oxygen is trapped in All the pilots must be seated Everybody strapped in The shipwreck crashes through the ice Antarctica on your device Right now they’re just about for free And though we’d sunken long ago I’m still swaying to and fro I know they’re probably saying a little prayer for me Passengers keep quiet Light is lightly trawling Look outside the window Where the night is trawling This is the universe The horses forces us off course As we keep search for the source Of course they vanished at the poles And though I was banished long ago I still make reference in my show I know they probably will still keep my soul Breathe inside your bubble Oxygen is trapped in All the pilots must be seated Everybody strapped in This is the universe

Shegaze 05:57
I was a temporary man In the eternal city I worked pretty hard to survive I get good stuff if I can But i’ve had enough It’s a rough time to be alive And its all crumbling grandeur I demand a halt I’m just a regular man In the puzzle of this town I guzzle the next drink down The engines of kings The songs that she sings The smiles on all their stupid faces The places I run but nobody home The motors of queens The rotors and sheen And the lies in all their turgid dreams Its seems I fly but I’m too shy Well I drove the removal van When things went missing Everybody guessing it was me And I deliver when I can The river and the seas Haven’t started to freeze And its all dirty washing Just keep sloshing it down Because I’m just a regular man In the zoo of a jungle I fumble the prophecy The ponies and dogs The phonies and the cogs And the fog upon all their dim ideas I hear its nice out but im all diced up The ponces and tools Ensconced in the schools The subtle subtext of their extra sexting Im expecting rain but my app says more pain Billie darling, bring me lolly Because I love you
7.
Elude 04:25
You have eluded me Oh my clever love Above me in a sky You have deluded me And i see it I see it in your eye You have unchained it Oh elusive friend Pretend it isn’t there You’ve really brained it Oh tiny mind But i cant find it there I’m calling home Within the souless air Walking alone I phone a zone away I’m talking down Under the ground down there Feeling a fool I cool my foolish heels

Swansea 04:30
Well they said his head is finally fully dead All the fortunes flown away Oh they know too slow to ever really go Blow me down show me today In swansea were we Unseaworthy In dawns sea were we Insolvent sea A seen got my routine you know just what i mean All the monkeys and the clowns Woe lot and noah I got my lawyer on the blower He said expect more ups and downs In swansea were we Unseaworthy In dawns sea were we Insolvent sea See the movement folding Free the moment holding Dream the being You wanted me to be Be the ending coming For thee forever coming See the being You wanted to set free Few they knew his cue was well and truly blew Of all the actors in the world And backstage in the black a galaxy lay cracked The curdled darkness was uncurled
9.
Theodora 04:30
We all go away happy Nobody goes away empty handed I saw your baby at the party I saw the party was movin on Theodora There remains nothing Theodora That explains everything Theodora It involves everyone Theodora It revolves around no one We all go away wondering Wonder why you mothers bother I saw your baby in the sauna Looks like things are heating up We all go away eventually Eventually youll grow up and fly I saw your baby in the graveyard Looks like things are cooling off Theodora There remains nothing Theodora That explains everything
10.
Ho Chi Min 04:40
Poisonous vial a trial by ordeal Change a dial a smile you can feel All the while the miles in between Pylon in let the nylon begin Oh ho chin min I know it aint been for long Oh ho chin min Oh cant you sing along Treacherous rock it shocks us to crash Change the clocks it blocks us to clash Change my socks i’m only feet away Box my ears i’m only here today Oh ho chin min I know it aint been for long Oh ho chin min Oh cant you sing along
11.
Once 04:31
I follow you To the ends of this earth Where the hollow go Before their god I swallowed your words That i overheard In a shallow slumber Your number just came up I call your name Its bizarre and profane What do you gain From any of this I stand by your side Like the land that you ride Inside, we are the same Oh we’re going under now Oh we’re knowing wonder how Low and sweet We’re breathing I am inverse I’m the best and the worst I’d burst before i let you in You are reverse Cursing you’re your fortune Before soon Must be mercy

about

Steve Kilbey (writer of Under the Milky Way, The Church) and Martin Kennedy's (instrumentalists All India Radio) fourth studio album Inside We Are The Same takes them to new and unexpected places.

From the joyous children's choir in This is the Universe to the late-70s new wave vibe of Amenia and the dreamy space rock of Oh My Glad, the album brings together Kilbey's "characterful cool poise and an imaginative lyrical lexicon" (MOJO) with Kennedy's "lush melodies that marry electronic soundscapes to soaring tunefulness" (TheBig Takeover), "where lightness and shadows collide to make something rather mysterious" (ToneDeaf)
