Kabir Kumar How do you describe the nicest man in the world? Is it the way he invites you to dance throughout this seven-song album, recorded all by himself in an empty house in MI? Or is it the way every song feels candid and easygoing on the surface, but full of little moments you just can't pin down without listening again...and again? Either way, you'll probably like him. Favorite track: We're Still Fun.

about

Sam Bailey Oakland, California

In September of 2016 I went on a road trip intending, at some point, to make an album -- there was a big, secluded, empty house waiting for me in Michigan. I zigged and zagged across the US for about two months. Then did nothing but eat, sleep, watch TV and make music. All of the songs were written, recorded, mixed and mastered by me in the month I was there. Thanks for listenin' ... more

Track Name: Take it Away
Take it away with you
like you always seem to
and lock it away with with you
it's all the same, it's true

But I'm not tempted
to just follow you
Track Name: We're Still Fun
Let's call everyone, as if we're still fun
and it's done
and I could lie about us
that we're just

paying minds, helping eyes
courting doubt, sourcing lies
asserting ties, sorting out
loosen' ties, just hanging out

when you cheat you tell the truth
as if I need to need you too
well I'm hot and can't refute,
but I'll think of it

your eyes are lookin' outside of
our fading ways, it's all haze.
how you fantasize and come undone
we're still just

paying minds, helping eyes
courting doubt, sourcing lies
asserting ties, sorting out
loosen' ties, just hanging out

when you cheat you tell the truth
as if I need to need you too
well I'm hot and can't refute,
but I'll think of it
Track Name: Indie 2
You've got another life in the stars tonight
and it's fine to find another dream in time

You've got another life you could never find
just know, it's not your only chance to try

You've got a lot to set a side

You know you've got a lot to set aside
and you're goddamn right, I can help you tonight
well you know you got a lot to set aside *gibberish*
Track Name: We're Too Young
I told them in my eyes, so they all might sing along
but bored and then surprised, I never had a song

we're too young to let it last,
too old to let the moment pass, as if we could

What's left here that can hide
cut the knot that holds your mask
for the ceremony of the golden hands
the time has gone away
thought it had to stay
I can't hide, I can't speak
the line has gone away, and grace won't play with lies

I told them in my eyes, so they all might sing along
but bored and then surprised, I never had a song

we're too young to let it last,
too old to let the moment pass, as if we could
Track Name: Stamina
I can't try much more than this but,
I like your sun glossed eyes and lack of fear
eyes, eyes.

Weekends ride on tempted feelings,
futures depend on common fear
eyes, eyes.

I should lie

how do I act like, you are the last time (x2)

I can't try much more than this but,
I like your sun glossed eyes and lack of fear
eyes, eyes, eyes, eyes.
Track Name: Only Love Won't do With You
Well have you found, the new tattoo will calm you down and prove you never quit.
Why those eyes? Try confiding in yourself for just a month or two to be sure.

Well maybe, love is what you need, and you need
but maybe you should be alone, just for now.

Was that the trick? Or did you just believe your memories endlessly?
Well maybe love is what you need to help you lead
your anxious life.

Hope arrives with somebody else
see the good with the bad falling off the shelf
and hope decides if somebody else
keeps the cure for the trick all to themselves

Well have you found comfort in the home you try to keep, oh.
Why those eyes? Trying confiding in yourself for just a month or two again to be sure.

Well maybe love is what you need, and you need
But maybe you should be alone.. blah blah blah
