  • Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    On one side you've got Austin's The Capitalist Kids churning out the hits on par with previous releases. Here they give us a love song, a timely song about government surveillance, and a cover by a band many would consider the antithesis of punk that they've spun into gold and worked out a tune that will be stuck in your head long after the record stops spinning. On the other side we've got three new songs from Columbus, OH's Tight Bros. This was our first introduction to the band and we got very excited very fast upon hearing these songs. An easy description would be something along the lines of a slightly more pop-punk friendly take on The Marked Men. These are songs for summertime. We look forward to more from these guys.

Track Name: The Capitalist Kids - Special Looks
good morning baby
let’s get some coffee
discuss the problems that plague our society
the world is such a frustrating clusterfuck
but we got each other
can you believe the luck?

a private little party with two private DJ’s
jumping up and down on the bed in our PJ’s

I need you to hold me tight
Tell me tell me everything is all right
I need you to flash that smile
I need you to hold my hand
make believing that you understand
I need you to make my existence worthwhile

you’re my soul mate, teammate, roommate, wife
only everything, life

pigtails at Pinballz, then maybe later
cocktails and Corvettes on the record player
I keep writing dumb songs because you inspire me
but I cannot express myself entirely

got songs piling up by the bunch for the next batch
surface of the subject hasn’t even been scratched
my feelings are deep, meaningful, and complex
ironically, this song is just the opposite
Track Name: The Capitalist Kids - What Have You Got To Hide?
they’ve got your phone calls, e-mails
and all of your texts
know every move you make from your GPS

it’s just the price we pay, you see
to live here in the Land of the Free
it fills me with such pride

they’ve got your bank statements
and your book receipts
their stalkerish devotion is almost kinda sweet

strip away your civil liberties
in the name of American Security
somewhere an eagle cried
What have you got to hide?
Track Name: Tight Bros - Little Bird
Little bird, look at you now
Spread your wings and then flew south
While I just sit here and smoke this cigarette
Chased after fireflies
At a show in the summertime
Well I just said this is not an exit

I know I'm in your head
Well now I'm in your bed
I know I'm in your head
Can't get you off my brain

Something tells me that's okay
A little voice that'll always say
When I wake up that you
You'll change your mind today

Little bird, I'll watch you fly little bird
Track Name: Tight Bros - Markers
Why did you go?

Pack up and get moving
Bad taste from this city
I can't escape from here
It's everything I love
But this feeling deep inside of me
Is fogging up my head
I know it seems convincing
But there's something I don't know
There's something I don't know

Why did you go?

The markers you're using
Lackluster, confusing
I need an answer
Please just tell me what to do
Because this shithead on my shoulders
Needs a better place to turn
I know you seem convincing
But there's something I don't know
There's something I don't know

Why did you go?
Why did you go?
Track Name: Tight Bros - Relocate Me
Seems like most of the time I can't see straight
My head and brain just separate
I'm calling it quits, I don't know what to do
I don't want the pills, I don't want to drink
I'd kill to have a normal day
I can't believe the shit I put you through

(Meet me at my window)
How do I stay up?
When I'm this down?
I guess my mind's made up and I'm not going out

Pick me up and relocate me
Haven't been myself much lately

This black cloud hanging over me won't go away
Just lingering, I know that you've grown tired of it, too
So you've been waiting patiently
While I'm off in another place
I've gotta find the way back, ohhh
