Album Notes
10 song full length from SF indie champions El Gato Dice. More gas than Uno, yet maintaining pop grace AND arena-sized fury.
"Walk A Mile" has been in worldwide rotation in it's acoustic format for a while- now it has 9 head nodding partners in crime in this eye-opening new release from SF's indie kings EGD.

Brilliant CD Offers a Manic Kind of Melancholy
This is the second official CD by El Gato Dice and offers an eclectic mix of songs, some simply as duos, some trios, some as a five-piece. The CD has a kind of melancholic feel, like Death Cab versus the Smiths. It is post-punk/ Indie Adult AAA. FCC Clean.
Best Tracks: 5 and 7
1. Matador- one minute moody instrumental sounding like a sad matador who reaches a melancholic ending with his bull. Compare to a Cure or Smiths intro.
2. Clean-post punk lead track with indie rock verses and quirky oriental scales and vocal chants. And a big chorus.
3. Trap- post punk tongue in cheek number about someone who gets the best of you EVERY time. Very Chapel Hill/DC sounding.
4. So Say- more traditional El Gato Dice sound- a melancholic song, not really sad but powerful in the verses. A celebratory melancholy like Radiohead before they got really far out.
**5. Haymaker- tongue in cheek country-alt-rocker that would be quite at home on a Bonneroo stage complete with slide guitar and three part harmonies! (1st ever)
6 Walk A Mile- a love story about ghosts, or at least seeing what you WANT to see. Indie but has an arena feel and mass chorus ending.
**7. Insatiable- this 6 minute instrumental defies logic and breaks the mold- and is the biggest hit so far! It's part spy movie, part space odyssey, with a shoegaze end not to be missed. It's actually about a robot and his day at work.
8. Rain Song- broody, powerful 90s post punk rocker about- rain! And water water everywhere.
9. In Defense- the 1st song written from the list of 10- it’s just a defiant little rocker a/la Wire meets the Foo Fighters
10. Walk A Mile- released in acoustic format in 2013, it was brought back as the perfect comedown for the 9 electric tracks that came before it.
