Los Détroit Los Angeles, California

Imagine the dry heat of Santa Ana winds blowing over the icy Detroit River, the dissonance of post-rock interlaced with lushness of dream pop. This is Los Detroit.

With rebirth-ed members from Detroit to Los Angeles, a dream-rock collaboration emerges. Mariam McCarthy of Silent Violet, Michael Carian of Au Revoir Borealis join Jill Marklin and Michael Lloyd of The Insyderz.

Track Name: Conditions
The type to sit back or do you plan the attack
If love waits, then I lose
I don’t want to fight when the conditions aren’t right
Protect me, Protect me

click click click click
bang bang bang bang
Encapsulated beauty,
the bullet passes quickly into the heart,
Into this heart

There was a time that I could take cities down,
but now I’m the hostage.
I don’t want to fight when the conditions aren’t right.
I can’t remember how to kick, how to punch, how to move
When I’m under the gun
Track Name: She/You
Pleasure wraps her arms around, doesn’t let you down until she wants to
Once you’ve stripped down to your core begging her for more,
Let me tell you

You will have to wait now. You will have to wait. You will have to wait now.
You will have to wait forever.

She moves calmly with no care for tomorrow.
A lover leaving you in bed when you’re most awake the morning after.
Beautiful things are in close reach, if you decide to leave, please remember.
Track Name: Accomplice
I’m gonna take you back, back to my old apartment
I’m gonna grab the gun while you catch all the memories on the run
You have a willing heart. We both have the strength to go and beat up the ghost.

You give me reason to believe. You give me a reason to believe.

This time I’m burnin’ it down, I’m burnin’ it down for good.
We’re burnin’ it down, we’re burnin’ it down for good.
Track Name: Samaritan
You see me, you see me, you see me left for dead
You find me, you find me, you find me left for dead
You carry me softly and gently to safer grounds,
but I don’t know your name, I don’t know your name
I see you, I see you, I see you in a blur
My heart as seen your name. My heart has seen your name
You love me, you love me, me
Love me still without so much as yes
