We are two singer-songwriters/multi-instrumentalists from small towns in Connecticut. We were brought together by our shared laziness in recording our music.
Although the songs were written in various times and places, we finally found the time to record a couple of them the very hot summer of 2015 in my humid basement in Connecticut.

Track Name: all my friend's are cigarettes - Andrew's Friend
you're andrews friend, arent you?

in a dream i see my baby actin mean
mad at me i cant be stilll i cant keep clean

i'm sandshrew but not to you

in a dream i see my baby actin mean
mad at me i cant be still i cant keep clean
be the mess i try my best at reasoning
lost the rest of arguments ill stop starting

dont call me baboos
its not fucking cute
only they call me that
not your candy ass
Track Name: all my friends are cigarettes - Caleb's Friend
oh you could be so, you could be so cool
if you were
but you're not so i really wonder why
you're his girl
now his world

you never go home
hate being alone in your head
rapid fire thought
but in his bed you caught a permanent cold instead
Track Name: Jorge Verde - Simply Simpering
i saw you from afar and i wanted to say, "hi."
you answered so politely and i was mystified by your eyes.
i knew it was too good to be oh so true
but i kept going at it, still, to this day, i do.

flowers on your back and i cannot forget the smile you had on your face. your arms crossed, simply simpering
i knew from the start you were just a lie in my head.
my dreams collide with reality.
i wish it weren't so bad.
Track Name: Jorge Verde - Used to It
i needed a call from you.
but you overlooked my warmth, it's easy to miss in a snowy eve.
it's sickening.
but still to bed i go alone, i'm used to it.

falling on your blind spot.
your movements endanger us.
not being cautious will leave a mark.
don't leave me on the side.
help me get up.
help me.

it's easier to fall asleep on wooden floors.
it's too cold to sleep.
it's easier to think the negative.
the positive is dead to me.
it's dead to me.
