Released under the name "tigerface" in 2014, this four song EP was recorded over the course of a hot week in August. Since this apocalyptic-themed solo effort, the band has expanded to a quartet and is releasing its inaugural single in May 2015.

Track Name: Control
as i open my eyes on the shore of another day...
the tide is still racing in/abandoning all my plans

I can hear all the engines on my street starting again...
They'd give up their lives for a thrill!
So we would remember them still for an hour or two during nuclear sickness.
They wanted to have a little bit of control.

As I open my eyes for the last time out on the ice--
all the food that i had is gone
all the people i know are gone
And I wonder why nobody wanted to come south with me??
They all wanted to tend to the garden.
They all wanted to play with their children for an hour or two during nuclear sickness.
They wanted to have a little bit of control.
They wanted to have a little bit of control.
Track Name: Leaving (For A While)
you're going down with the ship (a navy man till the end...)
you had a wife and a kid...they still exist in your head.
Say you're only leaving for a while.
Say you're only leaving for a while

I've got the pills and some booze, yeah we could make it a night
I know the timing is bad...(when will it ever be right??)
Say you're only leaving for a while

In the top-shelf graveyard, written out on the back of a traveling smile:
you're, "Leaving for a while--but only for a while."

I drove my car to the beach.
I had to stop a few times--I'm sicking up everything.
Just glad I made it in time.
To see you
(only leaving for a while).
Track Name: On The Beach
shell whip of kelp the mist on log like broken bone
and none of it will burn right
when you need it most
it gets cold out
on the beach
cold out on
the beach

Tire track and plastic bottle--have they been here a month a year
in silence? Just leave it out on the beach
leave it out on
the beach

All them frowns back in town with their empty notebooks
(and full accounts)--they're just shapes and
sizes you could live with or without
just be here on the beach
be here on the beach
Track Name: Junkyard
It's too hot to sleep in this junkyard tonight
I'm idling there, awake in the light
I roll off the pile and into the sink
I'm too damaged to think
my mind is split in t wo

The fruits have been crushed (yeah they're rotten and pale)
They come from a tree tryna sneak out the back
and silence the phone in the junkyard tonight
i used to be sturdy in green
my mind is split in t wo

I see the other side of existence when I'm
full of two hearts
if one stops neither stops
I'm real as I feel in the junkyard tonight.
Yeah my mind is split in t wo
yeah my mind is split in t wo
