about

Recorded after hours in the back of a antique store in Brooklyn these recordings are full of longing, poetry & lofi charm, baring their imperfections & scratches like a badge of honor, the shuffles, pops & breaths like the sound old furniture makes when no one is around.

Track Name: I Can't Take It One More Night I Can't Take It One More Day
I miss your red hair upon my pillow
I miss your pale body next to mine
In case you have a change of heart
I'll leave on the front porch light

Salvation cannot find me
It got lost along the way
I can't take this one more night
I can't take this one more day

Where you once laid is haunted
With all the reasons you don't want me
Trying hard to understand
I don't do too much sleeping

Why didn't I know why didn't I
You were always trying to say
I can't take this one more night
I can't take this one more day
I can't take this one more night
I can't take this one more day
Track Name: Ain't Ashamed To Cry
The tunes were good and the beer was flat
The game was on tv
My ex-girlfriend behind the bar
Wanted me to leave
She said the neon sign in the window
Reminds me of you
It ain't too much to look at
And its light is blown out too
I said don't look at me like you're surprised
Darlin I ain't ashamed to cry

We were sitting on east seventh street
Outside of Tompkins park
Fighting in the street light
To keep away the dark
She said your love is an actress past her prime
Darlin' i ain't ashamed to cry

I aint ashamed to cry
I've been crying for days
I aint ashamed to go insane
Like the Hemmingway's
She meant nothin' to me and besides
Darlin' i ain't ashamed to cry
Darlin' i ain't ashamed to cry

We parted as so many do
Believing we were right
Now the only thing I’m sure of
Is I cant sleep through the night
I see your face each time i close my eyes
Darlin' i ain't ashamed to cry

I aint ashamed to cry
Hurricanes in my head
Ain't ashamed to scream your name
In a stranger's bed
The truth is babe I'm full of lies
Darlin' i ain't ashamed to cry
Darlin' i ain't ashamed to cry

She said why dont you just shut your mouth
No excuse can make this right
Darlin' i ain't ashamed to cry
Track Name: Just Because It's Cloudy (Don't Mean It Has To Rain)
You're like a East Village apartment
Really hot or really cold
I’m not sure we’re going to make it
If the truth be told
Your silence loud as thunder
Your tears a tidal wave
The way that we've been fighting
I hope there’s something left to save
But we keep on trying
For reasons I can’t name
Just because it’s cloudy
Don’t mean it has to rain


The new year got real old real fast
Not much has gone our way
Hard times knockin’ on our door
As if they're here to stay
But bad luck’s always movin
Like a storm across the plains
Just because it’s cloudy
Dont mean it has to rain

Change is as slow as a Sunday driver
Takin' the scenic route to town
Wait and see what tomorrow brings
Might turn this all around
The sky it could be clear & blue
Without a hint of blame
Just because it's cloudy
Don't mean it has to rain
Don't mean it has to rain
Track Name: She May Be Insane (But I Love Her Like Crazy)
Her eyes are big and selfish like the troubles in her mind
But you can catch a glimpse of kindness if you look at the right time
My friends say be careful go back in with open eyes
Remember how awful you felt most of the time

She may be insane
She may be insane
She may be insane
But I love her like crazy
But I love her like crazy

She said hold on to your eggs now my baskets just plain broke
I’ve been crying for days now we’ve got to take it slow
Our alabaster bodies form one creature in the dark
Trying hard to mend the pieces of our broken hearts

She may be insane
She may be insane
She may be insane
But I love her like crazy
But I love her like crazy
But I love her like crazy
But I love her like crazy
