about

"Glacia" In The Press:

"Glacia seems like an auditory diary: personal, and full of... human emotion, mak(ing) this record so easy to connect with." - Martin Castro, The Cascade News

"Glacia is a very haunting, self-reflective album of Trainor’s darkest emotions. The whole album is a very cohesive work of intrinsic thoughts combined great atmospheric layers and eerie whispering vocals" - Josh Pineda, IndieBeat

“(Western Jaguar) has managed to chisel out a musical niche of his own, while drawing heavy influence from an array of folk-inspired indie rock/experimental ambient bands. “Glacia” itself is a delicate and intricate album… - Chris Romans, Hear The Indie

""Glacia is (a) dark, harrowing album" - Kier-Christer Junos, Red On Black Music, Kwantlen Chronicle

"Western Jaguar is someone to be admired, as he has created a whole new realm of music" - Emma Beaumont, On The Come Up TV

"(Western Jaguar) remains comfortably strapped into the sonic palette he has painted in the foggy landscape Western Jaguar was born out of." - Daniel Finfer, Ancient Lasers

"Songs with variance, with swells, with composition changes, (are all) reflected... within “Glacia’s” six tracks." - Vincent Pauwels, backstagetour.co

" ...the overall composition is very strong and unassumingly anthemic." - Strange/Quiet/Loud

"Just lean back and enjoy this music!" - Sound Locater

"this album seems to be made for (winter). The slighty mysterious edge makes it unique." - Vanessa, house in the sand

Track Name: Darby
The light reflecting in your hands
Memories of things you/ve had
The feelings gone, it won/t come back
Tilt your head, slow your breath

Every time, it/s rushing in
Every time, it/s breaking
Let me in
Track Name: Karoo Mammals
Swam across the ocean,
Swam across the lake
Legs are sinking under,
Legs are giving way
Swam across the ocean,
Swam across the lake
Senses are in motion,
Senses are awake

Bodies in an ocean,
Bodies in the lake
Mind is a racing
Looks for somewhere safe
Tremors in the water,
Tremors in the brain
Quiet punctuation
Always ends the same

The night grows cold
With miles to go
And I can/t stay away
Track Name: Year Of The Flood
Take the right one
Expose the flesh
You and I
Have been left for dead
The dream has faded
Dissipates
Reaching out, for something
That/s not really there

Dirty teeth
Arrive as good intentions go,
Away for conservation
They will, cut you, open
Put you on display
You/re on display

It/s a never ending cycle
It/s never ending
It/s angled
Track Name: Violet Sweatshirt
Still/s the night
Prying at what/s left,
At your best,
Sweatshirt cloaked over your chest

Tired eyes
Make for tired conversations

Confusion sets
Lack of common sense
In your head,
War persists without an end

Tired eyes
Make for tired talks
Our veins are full,
The blood is thin
Track Name: Mt. Baker
Winters chill is worse tonight
Here it calling, here it calling
Sky is turning, turning red
Sky is churning again

Drive in circles, drive in circles
For what, for what
Your bodies ailing, your bodies failing
And we can/t do much

Build a minefield in your head
Fuel the fire inside
But still exists a weight
Too heavy, too heavy
There still exists a weight
Too heavy, too heavy
Track Name: Glacia
Quiet Night
I feel the chill again
Full of violence
Inside

The stars
Flicker and shimmer
But they seem dimmer
From these depths

Insight,
Loath subtle confidence
Examine the relevance
Of this life

Sleepless Night
Built from experiment
Leave without incident
I/m alright
