Joe Proulx Some catchy and alienating art pop with some unconventional production, off-kilter rhythms and beats, echoing distorted guitars, colorful and exquisite keyboards, and energetic vocals delivering some religiously-tinged lyrics. Favorite track: Cheque Room.
Christopher Lee

Collin O'Brien These guys have made me never doubt that what they put their name on isn't exactly how I want an album of theirs to sound like. One of my favorite bands. Favorite track: Sign My Name Like ƪƲƐƐƝ.

In the sun my colour fades In the distance there, a mountain range The Spirit isn’t dead, it’s transforming in me I waited on a call that didn’t come A selfish talk about selfless thoughts in me Take my picture Pick me up in a cab I’m not the man I thought I’d be once My experience was all at once Proven to me, still I won’t believe Was it a mistake or was it meant for me? Now I’m waiting out in the rain The sun is down, the cab never came for me Take my picture Pick me up in a cab I’m not the man I thought I’d be once Take your picture with me while you still can Is it not what you thought it’d be? Does anybody know the number for a cab? I’m not what I thought I’d be

Crawl Walk Talk Pick you up at the mall Crop Top Bricks are heavy But they keep things together Take some time to define myself Take my time to define what’s heavy She’s heavy as a brick She’s heavy as a brick sometimes Sprawl Sob Resolve To quit your job at the mall Call card ran out Pick you up at Helen’s later Take some time to define myself Take my time to define what’s heavy She’s heavy as a brick She’s heavy as a brick sometimes

I went outside, a beating in my head And I kept on dancing Don’t stay inside, don’t go to bed Got to keep on dancing I lose my mind, I’m status obsessed Got to keep on dancing The deep and the dark, the beat less and less But I keep on dancing Whatever God is, It’s here with me now Come on outside, the beating is in my head I kept on dancing Your lips and eyes, the hair on your head Got to keep on dancing Those things inside, won’t ever be said Got to keep on dancing Come on outside, a beating in my head Got to keep on dancing I need your advice Inside I was willing to take anyone’s advice Outside my inside Worse and worse until My head’s all full up with advice I was willing to take anyone’s advice

Penny rollers in my pants Like revert back I’m not like that Panty hoes, cigarettes Like Riverdance I’m not like that It’s just like Black Beauty in the river bed Just like that Sign my name MYSTERY Call me BABYLON Now I don’t say whatever The Mother’s Union voted: Bring the reverb back You know I’d like that Birthday card accounts I’ll never leave my bank Just like that Can you hear these lyrics? Invoice me for that Like that Babel Tower, someone tell me what’s going on King James, someone tell me what’s going on I sign my name like QUEEN Call me BABYLON Now I don’t say whatever

Club Music 03:23
Please let dance music start After we have time to get messed up If you let it, the tears will still come I’m tired of melodies like these With no lesson to teach Supply me with the tools All the tools and all I need For melodies like these that nobody needs Please let dance music start After we have time to get messed up In the bathroom of the bar My tears will still come Hide me in the foreground Behind mild disposition like this I swing, I miss Not ready for different You told me to watch myself before I lose it Well, I’m telling you here Watch it! Please let dance music start After we have time to get messed up If you let it, your tears will still come

Cheque Room 03:41
I shouldn’t look at you So I look away Everything is done wrong here I am leaving I look away, I do Things I thought I’d never say, I do It’s taken everything in me to stay Now I am leaving Everybody told me that Here I am, look at you No, I think I should look away Everything is done wrong here I am leaving I shouldn’t look at you But I can’t look away There should be something here To put my belief in Listen When God calls me out onto the lake I tell my mind the waves are sand But when I step, I sink Although I fight, I succumb How come?

I follow myself everywhere I go Everywhere I go I follow myself I think I know what I think I know Feeling empty, this empty feeling I like attention, I like the feeling Lay bare attention, attention is fleeting I feel like emptiness is just a feeling Remember me As I was today Young and unaware Love is in all things Read the Bible, believe the Bible Need the Bible, need the Spirit Reveal the Spirit, undeniably deniable Demonstration its only rival Understanding is never final I’m tired of living But my instinct is survival Feeling empty, this empty feeling I like attention, I like the feeling But I feel like emptiness is just a feeling It’s just a feeling

Kiss me, honey, like you mean it And repeat it And repeat it All pop hooks like jokes in the funny paper Haven’t you done anything else?! Oh, happy days Give me a bit of your money Can you imagine that?! No You should’ve married a rich wife It’s too soon to tell Isn’t it time for a round on the house?! Now that I won’t live without I don’t understand why love is sad Here and now Here and now I can’t quite figure it out I still revel in my times going downtown Oh, happy days Living the nightmare One dream at a time Here and now I can’t quite figure it out
