the kids are at it in the parking lot with their shirts off, don't stop we love disco! oh, you think you're happy oh, you think you're so smart you think you're clever oh, you think you're falling apart they love like we love they kiss and we kiss god i'm so sure they're on drugs that make you live forever always nineteen, blonde, and wasted let's call it art let's call it something new we'll burn bright as moths sell out, die, and fall down laughing

Twenty-seven (free) 03:27
don't clap your hands or i'll die in a plane crash don't sing along or i'll overdose i know you want me wrapped in plastic 'what a shame, got their first album, i love that song where he goes..' i'm going to fall apart in a sea of broken synthesizers i'm going to walk out while it's still playing kick drum, snare drum, kick drum, snare drum you left us on the bedroom floor with our headphones on you left ringing in our ears we saw it coming i'm sure you knew we raised you so high, you had to come down i'm going to fall apart in a sea of four-track tape hiss i'm going to walk out while it's still playing kick drum, snare drum, kick drum, snare drum, oh
3.
yeh, i've had my heart broken but not by lovers only pop songs and late-night tv but still i've fallen under your sorcery but still im happy just to be you make it easy I came to this city walking tall though its not a swagger it's a limp you showed me your beauty but the sweetness lies within and all my love songs turn into hymns you make it easy
4.
How To Be (free) 02:57
every day i wake up drowning you're a sinking ship, i'm a ghost so kiss me in the dark and for one heavenly second i'm alive just to die in your arms, singing do de do de do de do someone do de do de do de do needs you oh, let's play sixties pop stars you be ronny, i'll be phil and we'll sing 'baby, i love you' in perfect three-track mono til i'm almost certainly convinced you've hidden a seven-inch playing oh, but you say rock 'n roll's a crutch for those who can't control themselves from singing, dancing, and playing, la la la

6.
write me off a a latecomer, yeh missed the first, second, third revivals still i can feel it i can't say anything new i cant say anything we can still strum the same chords we can still sing the same notes we can still write the same songs we can still make the same noise we can still strum the same chords we can still sing the same notes we can still write the same songs we can still make the same noise we love the sixties like it was the eighties we love the day-glo echo chambers still i can feel it in the grooves of these ones and zeros we can still write the same songs we can still sing the same notes we can still strum the same chords we can still make the same noise we can still sing the same notes we can still write the same songs we can still strum the same chords we can still make the same noise this has all been synthesized, yeh sampled and digitized, yeh still i can feel it we gotta move to get the idea we can still strum the same chords we can still write the same songs we can still sing the same notes we can still make the same noise we can still write the same songs we can still strum the same chords we can still sing the same notes we can still make the same noise
7.
let's start this off presuming its been done better a thousand times before by better actors, perfect bodies, sharper wits, and all that lets study every rhyme, every brushstroke for a glimpse of meaning stretch these clumsy metaphors to sing stop wasting my time you know you're perfect i know you're perfect for me so get on now surely we've got better things to do than to sit here arguing 'bout who'll make the first move how come you never let me down how could you never let me down and maybe i was right after all but i appreciate the second chance the angry teenage truth is that everything is moot and the best song's always the one you're singing
8.
this is a car crash i am a new flame cut it, cut it, cut it, cut it focus, focus tear down the spotlights real is the new fake this is not right, this is not right cut cords, set fire to flashlights shut down the airwaves forget your new name we need torches, we need torches hey man, we've got it made oh california, oh st. sebastian oh kelly deal 3000 shake it, shake it, shake it, shake it focus, focus no truth, no chemicals hey, hey we are the one this is the north coast this is the new wave whisper quiet shake it, shake it, shake it, shake it no truth, no chemicals hey, hey
9.
Can't 05:02
i know what you're thinking even when you don't bent up and broken down lying on gravel by the side of the road people like to live their lives with eyes closed i'll take your blinders off and step out into the night you've got something that i can't explain don't know what i want i only what i need i'll take you out of this place away from the sun lay down and look up at the stars people have no idea what's going on we'll leave them in the dark they're happier that way
10.
hold me underwater breathe well drink 'til we drown you and i floating on solid ground i'm a boat youre an island oh, la la la la i can be who you want i can be who you need i can be who you want i can only be me i can be who you want i can be who you need yes, i'm only, only..

Summertime 02:50

about

First full-lenth album from Coltrane Motion. Noiser, poppier, and more than a little bit obsessed with both motown girl groups and japanese drone bands. Sounds like Phil Spector stepping on a laptop.

about

Coltrane Motion Chicago

hey, let's make a dance record that sounds like what we dance to: girl groups and big beat and fuzzed-out indiepop / let's make a shoegaze laptop record out of drum breaks, guitar drone and broken synthesizers / yeh, let's call it rock n roll
