about

PIXELS is a proper HI-FI collection of old favourites from our first three LO-FI records &&& new classics - Heaven, Big Whoop, &&& SRIRACHA!

ABOUT THIS RECORDING: (GEEK TALK)
This HI-FI collection, PIXELS, was recorded at EYELAND, a beautiful analog recording studio in Providence, Rhode Island - featuring TWO-INCH TAPE (::swoon::) and a beautiful vintage TRIDENT CONSOLE - the tape recordings were carefully digitized track by track to be fleshed out and mixed at subModern, the bands personal studio. Two additional songs were recorded at subModern on a lovely TASCAM 388.

--------------

HEY L@@K ===> Purchasing the album through bandcamp gets you an EXCLUSIVE BONUS TRACK, "Grunge Heaven," a fuzzified in-yr-face version of the opening tune.

--------------

This album is dedicated to Julius, our beloved studio cat, b-man, and the Talking Heads, who, between you and me, are still the best band to come out of Rhode Island.

Thank you to: benny & jeff & the columbus co-op, teegan, lauren, phoebe, gymshorts, hot tramps, dusty, david, alex, polina, the brother mccurdy, ethan, neil, dylan and all of you xoxo.

Track Name: Heaven
heaven only knows
you love so bad
someones gotta break your heart
to break you in
so i bought stole and fought
seems like nothings gonna break your heart
or win your heart

i loved you so hard
upon hot asphalt
i was lain

to waste
left out in the rain
and the sun
was the first one out in the rain

heaven only knows what i'd do
to save all the things that you kill
you throw it all away just for fun
i couldn't save the things that you killed
Track Name: Sylvia
i'm all alone
in my room
wondering
days go by
nights go by
not slumbering

o why must i feel so alone
sylvia, you take too many pills

oh you and me we could make fun together
yeah you and me we could make fun together
but sylvia

oh you and me we could have made fun together
yeah you and me we could have made some fun together
but sylvia
you take too many pills
Track Name: Fuck the Patriarchy
i was working at this vegan deli
when you came looking for meat
i said "you're not the kind of girl
who should waste your time on meat"
you've got no time for mother's news
when you're at the coffee shop
you're busy looking at the market
and logging on a hot spot

but when i told you that i loved you
you told me you cared
it was a dream i was having
walking down the street

i wish you had some kind of ethics
the same kind of ethics as me
we'd be living standard and poor
and saying "fuck the patriarchy"
oh fuck the patriarchy

Track Name: Memory Boy
i'm gonna put you in a bath of acid
andy boy
i'm gonna put you in a bath of acid
memory boy

o frank o'hara
be nice to andy
he went to college
not to night school
o andy
forget about frank
forget about it
the new york school

when you find yourself in rows
your genius comes and goes
and when you find yourself in rows
it really tends to go

now
who's gonna put you in a bath of acid
memory boy?
you've got no friends in the new york school
andy boy but

nobody saw him
walking down the beach
take down your psychedelic prince
and hang 'em around the town
you've been hanging around the town too long
since you've been down
Track Name: Sriracha
getting my fill
every god damn day
i want to have you
every god damn way

you'll never burn out
or fade away
i wanna have you
every god damn day

sriracha
Track Name: Pepsi Queen
here she comes
my little pepsi queen

she's got no need for naps
she's speeding all the time
she spits on coca cola

little pepsi queen

she lives on oxycodone
she lives on broken robs
she's got giant little fists

i don't know why
Track Name: Soundblaster 16
i'm saving up my money for a brand new system
i'm saving up my money for a dark night
when i'm alone now

it's like a first date

i've got a brand new system
just like a prayer just like i'm kissin
audio audio digital audio
your voice in pcm sound
just can't be i can't believe it's just
audio audio digital audio

i'll save up my money for soundblaster 16
i want soundblaster 16

we walked with our food stamps to the mini mart
we sold all our movie to make the rent
i was happy so happy

well they call you and you are the terminator of hearts

cruelty

once you loved me
but you don't love me

why was i so cruel to you
maybe i was wise
i was wise to you

a broken heart's right
twice a day
and a broken heart can tell time

well they call you and you are the terminator of hearts
Track Name: Big Whoop

but i'm gonna get ya
nothing's free
i'm the tax man
