fiteyfiteyfitey Daises is a fantastic track. I also like the lyrics on Victory Lap. The synth (pretty sure its a synth) is the highlight of the whole album, providing the most memorable parts of the songs. Favorite track: Daisies.

Propuesta Cultural Transmission of tranquility is one of the strong points that characterize this publication. However, "Mirror" is a subject whose level of experimentation makes it my favorite piece. Favorite track: Mirror.

about

Night Beach Atlanta, Georgia

"[Night Beach's] melodies operate like private detectives—you'll find that after even a single listen they'll unconsciously soundtrack your every mundane moment. They're songs with soft noses and dark shorts; their deftly arranged layers remind me especially of Koopas from the Mario Bros. universe, smug punksters fitting snugly in their daring shells"--facebook post by Paolo Y. ... more

Track Name: Gone
************
***theme***
************

the planes of the mirror and hallway collapse
and fold over on themselves and melt into haze
the image spirals down and bounces back again
between the walls inside of my head

flick a light, try to stabilize my mind
though i thought, i thought thought i'd get to sleep ontime
that dream's gone, gone, gone, yes indeed

oh,
canyons and mountains, and countless moons
oh, how, how they've separated me from you
I guess there's only so much wound lickin' I can do
before they're gone, gone, gone, yes indeed
before I'm gone, gone, gone
Track Name: Daisies
grey clouds floatin in on the humid air
stone steps up the hill to your house on a quiet stare*
the last time I stayed out in the rain,
my phone got soaked and it died
I tried to dry it off but it couldn't be revived

but you were standin' in the window, wavin to me
and so i went inside to find you as it started thundering
and we watched it rain from your bedroom
for the whole afternoon
now im just wishin I could stay here
stay here with you

*or "stair". Earlier in the line, "stone" can also be "stoned"
Track Name: Hair
I wash my hair, I wash my clothes
I see myself in the mirro'
I wash my hair, I wash my face
I know my look, I know my place
Track Name: Victory Lap
moonbeam down the hallway
is painting me a picture
pushing red and green into the frame
with a brush too fast to see
I could watch the oil mixing
for another couple hours
but it's probably time I went to sleep

and It'll come again tomorrow
it'll come again tomorrow
and it'll come again tomorrow for all that you know
it'll come again tomorrow when you're right on the nose

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%

we tried to play nice
we tried to be friends
but we live in our own worlds of images
flat picture frames
floating on by
at least we could share the same one for a while

!%!%!%!%!%!%!%!%!%!%!%!%!%!%!%!%
!%!%!%!%!%!%!%!%!%!%!%!%!%!%!%!%

and I just wish that I had some energy
I would break straight through to the other side
of this wall that's between you and me
but deep down, I'm worried
that the drawings on my side of it
are gonna be better than the real thing

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Track Name: Sleepy Dragon
little dragon in a bed
little dragon sleepy head
thinkin' about curds and whey
thinkin' where they'll be some other day
