about

Ooh. Aah. This was my first album as The Stoned Beatle. It was inspired by the solo work of my friend Jerered, who showed me it was possible to make good, stripped-down music by yourself. Over a bored high school Thanksgiving break I recorded some songs that were either too weird, short, or personal to play with a group, while avoiding traditional rock instruments like electric guitar, bass, and drums. A dumb cover photo and Oohs and Aahs is in business.

Track Name: ensu dremas
She's twisting wild in the breeze
She must be dreaming
Her speeches rip me inside out
Her tears are streaming into pools at her feet

I don't want her to cry anymore
That's not what her eyes were made for
Her dad's an asshole who tells her what to think
She stops trying and doesn't speak

Her skin is soft, her kisses like honey
Her body's moving
She tastes like cinnamon coffee
She's finally waking up to see the breaking world

She's packing her things in the dark
Her parents won't tear her life apart
I promise her she won't feel like that anymore
She doesn't look back as she walks out the door
