Eli Moore and Ashley Eriksson's radiant songwriting chemistry is on display on both sides of the 2006 7" single by LAKE. Recorded by Tucker Martine before Oh, The Places We'll Go [KLP196] and Let's Build a Roof [KLP213], this single represents the fluidity of sounds that LAKE operates with: both songs are hopeful in different ways – "You Are Alone" (featuring Moore's sympathetic voice and calm keys) is a hand on your shoulder, and "Higher Than Merry" (featuring Eriksson's contagious glee and a kaleidoscope of percussions, horns, and animal sounds) is a hand that pulls you into a Technicolor dream. Known to change tempos and styles on an album, LAKE throws a sharp curveball for this edition of K's International Pop Underground series of 7" singles. Your hand makes the transition; flipping Side A to Side B is like opening a letter from a familiar friend: insightful and cheerful.
