agutterfan LA riot grrrl indie rock band with some great banging tunes and a lyrical theme about the passing of time (and youth) which is alternately defiant and touching. Love it. Favorite track: Tried & True.

marxalot I listen to this and I hear a sort of queerbent girl Jawbreaker, which may be what I've wanted my whole life. Favorite track: Lucky Strikes Out.

anabolic squirrel Catchy as hell, yet still a little raw around the edges. This one and degenerate are two well crafted rock songs. I've enjoyed spinning the record before going to work in the AM. Favorite track: Tried & True.

Holy Basil 03:10
Took a knife right to the back for that. Said I'm never going back to that bar. You wait in line behind your faithless friends. Did it make you feel ashamed to watch them smile while they rubbed salt in my face? You lost control. You lost a friend. I lost my voice. Got drunk again. And all the while you were counting back in your head. You cried and said that I always won and you had it so hard, you had it so hard, you have it so hard now. Took a knife right to the back for that. Said I'm never gonna leave my house. Lay in bed all day and hide my face cause I feel anxious. Don’t want to feel like a chump anymore. You lost control. You lost a friend. I lost my voice. Got drunk again. And all the while you were counting back in your head. You cried and said that I always won and you had it so hard, you had it so hard, you have it so hard now. I lost my voice got drunk again.

No Exit 02:33
Say what you want to me, choose your words carefully I can’t keep a secret to save my life What did I ever do besides stick up for you When no one else was on your side? I may have called you names, Complained of all the times I lent you money or gave you rides But what I’ll never do is pretend that you never deserved our goodbye Tear it down, break it up Do what you gotta do Whatever it takes to take the blame off you You do no wrong? It’s all you do

Over My Head 03:22
Thought I saw you a year ago. At your friends tattoo party. Turns out I passed out from a hex. I was lucky to make it out. I’m getting over my head. You’re getting under my skin. I build dreams around you and I will keep doing so. You’re the girl that came in with a mighty wind. You’re the girl that’s stuck in my mind. I’m getting over my head. You’re getting under my skin. You’ll find me waiting patiently when you won’t notice. We wear our hearts up on our sleeves when we can’t focus. Time is on our hands til we can make a move. Until then we got this song when we feel most alone. Im getting over my head. You’re getting under my skin.

In my room we laughed and caught eyes and colds We sat so close I could see your beating heart under your clothes I asked what you’re thinking You said “Nothing really. It’s getting late and I’ve got work in the morning.” I watched you start your car through my window from afar I could see your breath and wondered how it tasted I got my Lucky Strikes out and replaced him I lit a strike and a struck a match with my Lucky Strikes and a heart attack With any luck I met my match I sat down in defeat and leaned against the door and I thought of all the things that I meant to say but couldn’t anymore That’s when you knocked and I hopped up To see who was standing there when you pulled me in and we kissed right there

Brighton 03:31
Check yourself in while I check in with myself It's such a long drive just to get some help You tell me things I wish I'd never known It's always sweet boys who are accident prone You won't be playing dead if you keep this up I don't want you to leave too soon No one in your life knows how bad it's grown I offer you advice from my phone All I can be is a shoulder to cry on While you cheat death in Michigan Sometimes it feels like all my friends need my help It's a welcome respite from myself

We were headed to the end, the end of the summer. My mother always told me too much of a good thing has to end. Let the waves roll over my shoulders to take the dead weight with it. That's when I realized that the world is bigger now than me and you. I don't know what I can say to you. But I have to tell the truth. In this empty space that you create. To get you to look through. Now I sit at home and drink alone cause I don't have friends that call me. There all sitting in dark corners crying about Doug. Tried to get out of this town but I keep getting sucked back into it. That's when I realized that the world is bigger than me and you. I don't know what I can say to you. But I have to tell the truth. In this empty space that you create. To get you to look through They'll stand around. They'll run their mouths. They'll tear you down. I don't know what I can say to you. But I have to tell the truth. In this empty space that you create. To get you to look through

Degenerate 03:04
I spent the week inside my bed Sinking deeper inside my head I forced myself to leave the house Or else I’m never getting out I saw her standing by herself In the backyard at some party I hardly knew anyone there I hardly knew if she knew me I emptied out my cup Stood up and sucked it up I made my way to her and then I made the same mistakes again I’m a degenerate, baby Feeling broken and crazy I’m a degenerate baby Waiting for someone to save me I watched my words as they fell flat Wishing that I could take them back Decide to quit while I’m ahead Retreat inside myself again I always fuck it up Regret my losses cut I’ll just drink til I’m fun again That’s been my only solid plan Feels like I’m waiting to grow up While all my friends keep moving on Somehow it seems I’ve gotten stuck In time when I was 21 How should a person be? What could be wrong with me? I guess I’ll spend the night alone And just keep staring at my phone

Tried & True 03:25
I watch you in your sleep Breathe in, breathe out You make it look so easy I wonder if you dream, dream of me In the glow of the TV I’m feeling everything that I let in Not a distraction I know my mind has had enough Once I feel I’m cracking Slip a half under my tongue One half is never enough I feel it in my blood What a relief, a sweet release From me here in my room I watch you in your sleep Breathe in, breathe out You make it look so easy I wonder if you dream, dream of me In the glow of the TV Slip a half under my tongue One half is never enough I feel it in my blood What a relief, a sweet release It’s tried and true

Mullet 02:19
She’s waking up next to you. Now you don’t know what you’re trying to do. You get caught in all these lies and now you’re leading her on. And it’s true that no one ever happens to change. You got them laughing in your face when you’re trying to fight today. It’s hard enough in life just finding your own way. She started drinking that night. On the way to her brothers house. She hit a few parked cars and now her head is bleeding and she’s gone. Cause no ones ever happens to stay. You got them laughing in your face when you’re trying to fight today. It’s hard enough in life just finding your own way. You know I know that they can’t take back what they said. You know I know that they can’t take back what they did. You got them laughing in your face when you’re trying to fight today. It’s hard enough in life just finding your own way.

Saw her face at the show but she had to go with her boyfriend.So I wrote her a letter addressed to her bedroom asking her to come to LA. She’s out of my league my friends said but I like to pretend.That we’re somewhere on a beach holding hands laughing at them. Do you really think they had to say those things? I thinks it's time we change them. They try and mess around. They try and push you down but you won’t take anything. They tell us who to love and we don't give a fuck cause we won't change anything. My thoughts are hard to control with her my heart just knows. She mailed me back a photo and a piece of her clothes. Now we’re driving down sunset down singing along to our favorite song saying “They’re just jealous cause we’re young in love!” Do you really think they had to say those things? I thinks it's time we change them. They try to mess around. They try to push you down but you won’t take anything. They tell us who to love and we don't give a fuck cause we won't change anything.
