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.

Take it Away 02:44
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

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

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*

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

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.

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

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
