Show Review

We're not going out on a limb by saying Glassnote Records has an eye for selecting acts that quench our insatiable cravings for folk rock (just ask Marcus Mumford). A recent addition to their roster comes in the form of a group of five kids from Dublin who are collectively known as Little Green Cars. The band is fronted by the unsettled stare of Stevie Appleby and the stoic gaze of Faye O'Leary, who together guide each of the group's intimate harmonizations into their own boistrous sing-a-long ballads.

With the release of of their debut LP, Absolute Zero, coming in April, these young folks took a trip down to Austin, Texas to perform at Conflict of Interest's night at Hype Machine's Hype Hotel, where we were armed and ready with a production crew to capture one of our favorite new bands for you to enjoy.

Being dead is not as easy as it looks.
You know I can't sit still cause these pills that I took.
Side effects they get the best of my rage.

You know your place among the dark lines of the woods
In air or lakes with love I never understood

Love took me down to the river to silence me
My love took me down to the river to silence me.
And when he left I could not speak.
I lay on the ground I tried to speak
But no sound did come out I could only believe in you
I waited for him till the frost did come.
But my skin it turned blue and my body was numb.
But my heart it burned out till there was no more.
Still I wait on the ground I don't know what for.
There, there is a heart in here.
Where, where is the heart in here?
This love's killing me but I want it to.
.
So long you're gone just like I always knew. .
But I'm still here waiting for you.
Here waiting for you.
Well my love took me down to the river to silence me.
And when he left I could not speak.
What he said to me I can never say.
Because it's breaking my heart to this very day.
There, there is a heart in here.
Where, where is the heart in here?
This love's killing me but I want it to.
So long you're gone, just like I always knew.
But I'm here waiting for you.

It's easy to fall in love It's easy to fall in love with you
It's easy to fall in love It's easy to fall in love with you
You go outside dressed like that
You knew what was going to happen didn't you?
You talk to me like that
You knew I was slowly falling in love with you
And I... I... I...ooh And I... I... I...ooh
You know it's your neglect is the reason that I'm so obsessed with you.
And when I asked you your name you said "John Wayne" and I guess it's true.
Because then you shot me down doubled over
And I hit the ground right in front of you
I guess in the Wild West it's okay to shoot the pest that's annoying you
And I... I... I...ooh
And I... I... I... I love you
It's easy to fall in love.
It's easy to be alone.
It's easy to hate yourself when all your love is inside someone else.
It's easy to take it all.
It's easy to give it too
When there's more people out there to love than people who love you.
And I... I... I...ohh
It's easy to fall in love.
It's easy to fall in love with you.
You see I'm so obsessed.
You knew what was going to happen didn't you?
I guess in the Wild West it's so easy to fall in love with you.
It's easy to fall in love.
It's easy to fall in love with you.
