"Milezo just tossed out their new album, Heads on Holiday. Like most things done with the band, the entire listen is a journey. You’ll hear songs of the psych sort pushed in the direction of wistful pop songs then off to lush gazing tracks. It’s never in one place long, offering a lot of discovery for listeners. Take a trip with these guys by streaming it in its entirety below; you won’t regret it."

- Nathan Lankford (Austin Town Hall)

"Under the guidance of creative force Miles Kelley, Milezo’s songs float between mellow pop and clamoring experimentation but rely on noisy, psychedelic rock as their stylistic center. Milezo creates songs that exude chill vibes but still burst with anxious energy."

- Bryan C. Parker (Austin Monthly)

about

Milezo Austin, Texas

Milezo began in 2007 as the daydreamy lo-fi home project of Austin native Miles Kelley. Combining experimental folk, shimmery psych-rock and shoe-gaze overtones, the band's now four-piece live affair includes Blair Robbins (vocal / keys / guitar), newly added member Maud Morgan (bass) and Sam Jordan, the drummer who has lent his dynamic textures to Kelley's songs for more than a decade. ... more

Track Name: Smoke Signals
outside the cabin cloaked in snow
spells above the wasteland glow
leave behind your sober heart
it’s never too late to start

the designs of his failures are now frozen
his fingers are shaky and broken
smoke signals dance in the sunlight
till theres nothing left but the sky
just that sad simple echo
in his eyes

he walks through town to make a deal
nothing that he sees seems real
wonders should he just give up
on trying to be anyone

the designs of his failures are now frozen
his fingers are shaky and broken
smoke signals dance in the sunlight
till theres nothing left but the sky
just that sad simple echo
in his eyes

I’ve done nothing I set out to do
I’ve got nothing, nothing but you
and thats alright
yeah that’s alright
Track Name: Close Your Eyes
I’m walking down the only road I see
I live my life it’s the only one for me

close yr. eyes
girl lay down next to me
no more lies, living like
another useless parasite

So good to see you again, I have nothing new to say
You were the one who left but I’m the one who’s gone away

close yr. eyes
girl lay down next to me
no more lies, living like
another useless parasite

I feel so bad, I feel so good
cut up like apples in my mind
oh it’s alright, i’m just uptight
searching for something that I won’t ever find

close yr. eyes
girl lay down next to me
no more lies, living like
another useless parasite
Track Name: When I Was Young
why do I keep living in the dark?
no blood in my veins and nothin’ inside of my heart
they say it’s not over, the birds will fly back from the coast
my love will then return as a red lipped ghost

still I feel numb, I’m on the run
when I was young I had my fun
soaked up the sun, soaked up the sun
when I was young, when I was young

something sinister controlled my mind
I found a brand new way to break the ice
I cursed the flower trees who gave me life
the world was still asleep when I passed by

now I feel numb, I’m on the run
when I was young I had my fun
soaked up the sun, soaked up the sun
when I was young, when I was young
Track Name: Don't Give In
you say you want to leave but where will you go?
you say you don’t believe but what do you know?
when I see your face again it’s razor blades in the snow
I got a vision in my head that I try my best to follow

oh the days are, passing you by
watch the rain fall, from the morning sky
when all your thoughts seem
shallow dark and grim
don’t surrender
don’t give in

I got the message in the street, no I didn’t trust a word
the voice seemed close yet far away, it’s speech was dumb and slurred
to my left, up in the air was a silver floating bird
across the street I saw your face and then my heart was cured

oh the days are, passing you by
watch the rain fall, from the morning sky
when all your thoughts seem
shallow dark and grim
don’t surrender
don’t give in

last night I took my car out on a moonlit ride
with no set destination, just a cluttered mind
in the cold air I found my friends, smoking and drinking wine
I felt strange like the ghost of someone who already died

oh the days are, passing you by
watch the rain fall, from the morning sky
when all your thoughts seem
shallow dark and grim
your deep inside yourself
and no one else can swim
don’t surrender
don’t give in
Track Name: Serpents
no time to think it over
lets make it to the other side
you know I know you want to
your tired of drowning all the time

your phantom lips of solar
will crumble like some castle wall
your sitting in the bedroom
see the debris float down the hall

I guess I’m having fun
we got a message from the setting sun
and all the serpents cry
c’mon kiss those clouds goodbye

white lights of these distorted dreams
are spilling over so it seems
my mind is moving much to slow
my head is filling up with snow

no time to think it over
lets make it to the other side
you know I know you want to
your tired of drowning all the time

I guess I’m having fun
we got a message from the setting sun
and all the serpents cry
c’mon kiss those clouds goodbye
Track Name: Soak Up
search outside look for the sign
I’ll take it in and make it mine
you’ve got the power, I’ve got the power of dreaming
tell me what you want and I’ll try to repeat it

cup of tea drink me grand
twist the paper in my hand
turn it into something thats worth seeing
soak up all the things that I believe in

pulsing rhythm in my viens
is it pleasure? is it pain?
pour out river make the banks be better
it flows on and on it flows forever

kiss like lilies in the palm of my hand
the silver lips in the promised land
kiss for forgiveness, kissing to forget the feeling
turn everything it is into all I’m seeing
Track Name: Start Turning Around
stuck in the wasteland
waiting on the cars
drive fast like some
never ending star

oh ya start turning around
start turning around
start turning around
with your head to the ground
and your brains spilling out
you start turning around

waiting on my lips for kisses
psychic nonsense so defensive now
you looked into my eyes
you didn’t like the other side you found
now that he’s takin’ over
there is nothing less than sober
so elusive you’ve become
but you are not the only one
oh I can’t recall the day
when my heart just flew away

spells above the wasteland
casting down the rain
see the guru girl
she’s open in the lane

oh she starts turning around
starts turning around
starts turning around
with her head to the ground
and her brains spilling out
she starts turning around

waiting on your lips for kisses
psychic nonsense so defensive now
I looked into her eyes
I didn’t want the other side I found
now that she’s takin’ over
there is nothing less than sober
so elusive she’s become
but she is not the only one
no I can’t recall the day
when my heart just flew away
Track Name: Running Dry
it feels like I’m losing inside
are they real?
all these thoughts in my mind
could it happen to me?
is it all just a lie?
could our love set us free?
should we give this a try?

oh baby, won’t you follow me down
through the quicksand
give me your hand
let your feet find the ground

time has found me wasting away
alone on a warm sunny day
oh I know I get strange
when my world is a’changin’
and I’m so hard to find
cause my heads re-arrangin’

so I’m waiting
like a snake in the grass
on the surface with no purpose
hoping my love comes back

sailing on a flash of light
in the sunshine I’m so terrified
always so tired and I know why
I’ve been sinking in the quicksands of dreams gone by
and I’m running’ dry
Track Name: Where I Wanna Be
all the cards are in my hand
got to make em’ understand
summer is the killing time
and I want to feel alive again

don’t be frightened
by the possibilities
under your eyelids, enlightened
thats where I wanna be

all these gloomy days of sorrow
leave my head wrapped up in a crutch
crossing lines and acting oh so tough
anyone could call that bluff

don’t be frightened
by the possibilities
under your eyelids, enlightened
thats where I wanna be
Track Name: Heads on Holiday
saber teeth cut up the sky
slashing the clouds
drip down strawberry blood
in search of love

somewhere in-between
death and a dream
you will find me
oh I’m 15 worlds away
my heads on holiday

it’s fading, dead daises
grow in the gears
the fish swim in eggshells
filled up with tears

somewhere in-between
death and a dream
you will find me
oh I’m 15 worlds away
my heads on holiday
