about

Summerooms is specifically meant for you and your summer. And your cat. Dogs are excluded from the listening experience.

***

Track 7 features a sample taken from "The Elements of the Business of Business w/ Dean Madducks" which can be found here:

"I Go to Pieces" was originally performed by Peter & Gordon, released in 1965. The song was written by Del Shannon.

KIND WORDS:

"All of these tunes are delivered with a guileless, wonderfully relaxed tone. You just can’t beat it for relaxing to... Summerooms is a beautiful, chill, sun-dappled album that doesn’t need me to explain it to death. If you like lo-fi pop that will put you in a good mood, you’re going to love it. Here’s to lazy evenings by the pool and in the hammock."
- Independent Clauses

"Summerooms shakes off the stereotype of superficial summer songs and tackles the trials of youth that we all face, maintaining musical mastery even in a lo-fi side project. Summerooms is perhaps a timeless record. The experiences discussed are widely applicable and highly relatable to those of all ages, whether in retrospect or in immediate reflection. There’s something here for most everyone, and, unlike its titular season, Summerooms has longevity."

Track Name: We Once Were Friends
You drove to my house, 3AM, to my backyard
I never did feel alone when I was in your car

All the length we drove, we didn’t know
That we’ll never, ever, ever gonna be the same again

You parked on a road, somewhere outside of town
We never did do a thing, you just held me like you never do now

The only kiss you gave, our silent permanent mistake
It’s all downhill from here

We’re never, ever, ever gonna be the same again
Track Name: Summerooms Social
Waiting at the pool
Waiting on you
You said that you’d come over
Later in the afternoon

Now I’m sure, you got everything
That you want, you won’t look at me
All I see, you never should have followed me
What to be, but you and I and you and me

Waiting at the pool
I’m waiting on you
You said that you’d come over
Later in the afternoon

Now I’m sure, you got everything
That you want, you won’t look at me
All I see, you never should have followed me
What to be, but you and I and you and me

(Take my heart, I fall apart)
Track Name: Try to Wake Up
Another night up till the morning
All you want is to be sleeping
You light a smoke and try to wake up
‘Cause no one knows what you’re made of

I know you’ll never believe me,
You’re never too old for love so redeeming

Of all the ways I’ve tried running,
He kept his pace, never turning
You can go on without me
But you won’t find peace where you’re going

I know you’ll never believe me,
You’re never too old for love so redeeming
Track Name: Ohm I, Ohm E
I feel useless, I feel dumb,
The way I treat you don’t feel like love at all
I read the right words and sing it out,
But the way I’m feeling, like I don’t feel at all

I don’t change, so shame on me,
My apathy, oh my, oh me

I’m no good man, take my word
Tonight my heart just feels no worth at all
You know what I’m thinking, you know what I do
Why do you want me when I can’t be true at all

You don’t change, no shame to see
My apathy, oh my, oh me

I don’t change, so shame on me
My apathy, oh my, oh me
Track Name: Good Game
I ran to first, I ran to first
I stumbled there, kicking up dirt
I’m out of place at first base
Tripping up, what a shame

What else could I say?
Good game.
Track Name: Leaving the Playground
I guess I’m getting older,
Hard knocks and hard work
Man, I’m getting older
Tables, they keep turning

No one ever told me it would be this hard,
Crybabies never really get this far

I guess I’m getting older,
We’re leaving the playground,
Man, I’m getting older
I’m headed for the high ground

Now I know it really isn’t all that bad,
Your happiness depends on what you’re aiming at

I don’t know, I don’t know what I want sometimes
But God gives me what I need to get by, and that’s alright.
Track Name: Not So Long Ago
We’re not waking up early so we stay up late,
Lots of ideas get lost on the way
Parents often tell us that we’re always wrong
But they were here too, not so long ago

So, what’ll it be?
When our universe stops spinning
Adulthood might kill me
When our universe stops spinning

Standing on the roof, looking at downtown
When the cars ride by just don’t look down
People take photos most of the time
You can make them look cool if you don’t look like you mind

So, what’ll it be?
When our universe stops spinning
Adulthood might kill me
When our universe stops spinning
Track Name: Longer Than Longboards
Watching our boys longboarding
Coasting through each morning
The way we all keep rolling
All of us, we keep rolling

I never was a skater, frankly I hate it
The pavement beat me up once or twice
I wish the day was longer, longer than longboards
Pavement beats you up at night

C’mon man, stop sulking
We’ll go to your house and drink soda
Vanilla Coke on a coaster
All of us, we keep rolling

I never was a skater, frankly I hate it
The pavement beat me up once or twice
I wish the day was longer, longer than longboards
Pavement beats you up at night
