Bill Bixby JR I would love this regardless, but it scratches a particular itch in these uncertain times. Somehow joyfully nostalgic and relevant at the same time. Cheers me up.

ArcaneJane ♠️ Great power pop like us punters never get enough of. It's just the ticket for this icky situation we find ourselves in right now being April/2020.
It'll make you smile and get an inner glow. It shall make thee want to dance. And .. the $$$ gets donated to community elders. So come on it's a bargain!! Buy it please. Favorite track: #1 Sounds.

J. Scott Watson It’s pretty simple — I love this record because it sounds fucking GREAT and the songs are hypnotic. Give “surround” a listen, and you may come to your senses hours later.

Favorite track: Surround.

Can’t stop talking about Danish movies I like to watch them on the video I can’t understand a single thing they say I read the words and it’s all ok hey hey Woo hoo hoo I want to talk about it, say what you mean when you look me in the eye, yeah Woo hoo hoo You never talk about the things that you think when you’re looking away no. Woo hoo hoo I wanna talk about it now. Can’t stop thinking about those Danish movies Keep watching something that I can’t understand Dark hours of silence and a head full of fear Searching for clues that I might overhear, yeah
Surround 03:25
She takes it to me She sees right through me She takes her time when she’s on the right side Her head is aching Her heart can’t take it But she makes it by when she’s on the right side Surround Surrounded Surround me Take me to the other side Surround Surrounded Surround me Take me to the other side Surrender to it There’s nothing to it Surround yourself with Your heartache She knows you’ll come to You’ll find a way to For now you hide your eyes for the long ride Your head is aching Your heart can’t take it But you’ll make the time to get to the right side And I know Well I know Alright I know And I know Yes I know Alright I know
#1 Sounds 03:17
Spending all my time just a driving around Gonna listen to my records, all the number one sounds I'm a conductor. I'm like liquid electric and I'll shock you When the night gets hectic Another sunny day and I'm playing the odds I lost a twenty-dollar bet on the three-button mods The tape is in the car and it's really not far But it's a copy of a copy of a copy of a copy oh yeah. Oh no! Everybody's getting down to the number one sounds Gonna turn the car around head back to the town Where everybody's getting down Spending all my days in the urban cafes, And in the evenings I’m a star at the hotel bar. The band is in the basement and they’re just my size, but all the drugs are telling lies you can see it in their eyes. I’d walk a million miles for your never ending smiles, the vacation generation is the curse of the nation oh yeah! All right!

Guitarist Jim Spellman (Velocity Girl, High Back Chairs) assembled these DC veterans in late 2015. Bassist Brian Baker is a legit punk godfather, with close to 40 years on bass and guitar for Minor Threat, Dag Nasty, and Bad Religion. Pete Moffett drummed for Government Issue and Wool before joining singer/guitarist Bill Barbot (Jawbox) in Burning Airlines. Decent pedigree, this lot. ... more
