released October 8, 2016

"A collection of home recordings. My first solo release."
-Mikhail Alex

Mikhail Alex's debut release is what I like to call stumbling reflection. A softly rasp and dusty voice, equivocal to songwriters like Elliott Smith and Alex G, blends with both shimmering and rusted guitars, a full band sound, and patchy lyricism of everyday introspection and delinquency, in order to create one EP that leaves the listener in solemn wonder, and hoping for a taste of more.

Recorded between July to September 2016.

All Production, Recording: Mikhail Alex
Mastering: Corey Williams

Track Name: Real Doll
Unmoving.
Eyes staring at the floor.
It's cold here,
But you would never know.

Your wrappings,
Are scattered through the room.
It's dirty,
Whoever would assume.

You stand there,
Against a pole,
Real doll.
You're empty,
You're made of stone,
But they don't know.

Teen movies
Make me sad because I know
I missed out
On my years of teenage love.

Unboxing,
This must be what it's like.
On prom night,
I'll take you for a ride.

You're endless,
You have no flaws,
Real Doll.
They made you,
Without a soul,
But they don't know.
Track Name: It's Easy
Well I pirated myself a piece of hope,
And I felt a little bad,
'Cause I knew it was illegal.
It's a shame you never pay for what you've got.
If you wanna help me out,
You only need to seed it.

Please,
It's easy.

Well I pirate myself a little love,
'Cause it isn't even sold,
In the area I live in.
When reality comes knocking at your door,
I'll be just a click away,
And we can call it even.

Please,
It's easy.

And don't come if you're still warm,
The real world got you first.
And don't come if you're still numb,
The real world got you first.

It's easy.

Well I pirated myself a piece of hope,
And I felt a little bad,
'Cause I knew it was illegal.
It's a shame you never pay for what you've got.
If you wanna help me out,
You only need to seed it.
Track Name: Heaven-Bound
On a castle wall,
Shone a dirty little light.
It's not much to most,
But for you it's out of sight.

It's not for everyone.
I saw you dancing.
You thought every splash of lights was heaven starlight.

Leave your mother's side,
And go out with me tonight.
To the crowded streets,
That you've never seen before.

They're not for everyone.
I saw you walking.
You thought every pair of eyes was heaven starlight.

In your younger days,
People said you're heavenbound.
But they never said,
What your place was on the ground.

It's not for everyone.
I saw you crawling.

As the years went by,
You were storing things away.
From your childhood,
'Cause the future never came.

It's not for everyone.
I saw you crawling.
You thought every spec of dust was heaven starlight.
Track Name: Dryl
If you float through my horizon,
Be the one to take me over.
If you'd like to cast your idol,
I'll be there and waiting for it.
Strike of lightning,
Your desire.
You're the one to take me over.
If you'd like to cast your idol,
I'll be there and waiting for it.

If you want to my dysfunction,
You're the one to take me over.
If you'd like to cast your idol,
I'll be there and waiting for it.
Track Name: Wraith
Suzy liked to step on birds,
And she liked to be untold,
And she stole what was broke,
And she liked to step on birds.

The price
Of wings.
What's happening?
What's up?

The sky
Came up.
What's happening?
What's up?
